1822X

Did you know that if you get sick or in an accident, your parents do not have any right to be involved in your medical or financial decision making? Read on for a story about one of our clients that had this happen to them!
Let’s fix that! RSVP now here on Facebook and join Lawvex for our 2nd annual young adult 1822X back to school event!
This event is hosted at all three of our office locations: Clovis, Madera and Solvang.
Thursday, August 18, 2022 from 3pm to 6pm. You don’t need to be with us the entire 3 hours! Each person generally is done within an hour of when they arrive.
All 18-22 year old adults are welcome. This is a fund raiser for China Peak Volunteer Ski Patrol. We are asking for participants to please make a $50 donation to China Peak Volunteer Ski Patrol.
Hablamos espanol. We will have Spanish speaking staff on hand.
Share the love. Text your friends!

In 2021, one of our clients called in a panic because his 20 year old daughter had acute appendicitis. He had taken his daughter to the local hospital. Once at the hospital – they took his daughter into an examination room and would NOT LET THE FATHER GO WITH HIS DAUGHTER AND WOULD NOT GIVE HIM ANY INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING!
The father was literally blocked by hospital security from being with his daughter. He called in a panic asking “what can I do?”
Unfortunately, we had to explain to him that once a young adult turns 18 parents no longer have the right to their children’s Private Health Information under federal HIPAA law and no longer have the right to participate in consent to treatment or make any medical decisions whatsoever – UNLESS – the adult child has previously created legal documents that authorize it.
Because this story is all too common, and one of our values at Lawvex is to educate our clients and the community, we are inviting you to attend 1822x – a back to school event for 18 to 22 year olds to check the box and get this done. Our young adult neighbors in the Fresno Clovis Madera and Solvang communities will receive their own legal:
(X) Advance Health Care Directive with HIPAA release; and
(X) Financial Power of Attorney
By checking the box with us, young adults that get sick or get in an accident will have provided their parents or other loved ones with FULL legal authority to:
speak to their health care provider and receive Private Health Information under HIPAA; make medical decisions for them such as consent to treatment, and life sustaining treatment; and take care of financial matters such as deposit a paycheck, access a bank account, or even access a social media account.
In case of emergency – we also host a copy of these legal documents securely online that you can access through our mobile app on your phone!
Lawvex provides these services as a pro bono community event. This is a fundraiser for China Peak Volunteer Ski Patrol. Instead of legal fees, we are asking for a $50 tax deductible donation to benefit China Peak Volunteer Ski Patrol, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
YOU MUST HAVE A PICTURE ID (DRIVER’S LICENSE OR NONDRIVERS ID ISSUED BY DMV, U.S. PASSPORT, OR FOREIGN PASSPORT STAMPED BY U.S. IMMIGRATION).
Disclaimer: Certain aspects of this event are not confidential. By attending this event, you consent that other attendees or volunteers of China Peak Ski Patrol may be present helping or waiting in line and may see or overhear information that would otherwise be confidential and attorney-client privileged.
