Like many New Orleans, LA parents, you've got thousands of disability rights law questions on your mind. We've provided answers to the most common:
What is interdiction?
In an interdiction proceeding, a judge determines if a disabled individual can make sound decisions. If your child can't make his or her own health care or financial decisions, a judge can appoint a tutor (or guardian) to protect your child's best interests.
What are the benefits of continued tutorship?
A tutor can legally make decisions for your child after he or she turns 18. By appointing someone you trust to be your loved one's tutor, you can rest easy knowing your child will receive the best care.
Who should appoint a tutor?
Parents of children with special needs often benefit from tutorship. It's a smart idea to discuss your child's needs with an attorney familiar with disability rights law.
