Elder Law and Estate Planning

Austin area Elder Law & Estate Planning, Attorney Virginia Sampson.

Critical Documents for Managing Financial and Legal Affairs (PDF)

 

Elder law and estate planning are not so different in some respects. Both areas of the law involve long-term planning for the future. The primary difference between them is that elder law focuses on what happens while you are living, while estate planning usually centers around what happens after you pass away.

Estate Planning

We also provide comprehensive estate planning services to ensure your goals, for your assets when you pass, are met. We handle legal matters after a person dies including probating wills. Critical document preparation and consultation includes:

  • Powers of Attorney
  • Medical Power of Attorney
  • Wills
  • Trusts (and more)

Medicaid Planning

 Many people over age 65 will need long-term care at some point, and the costs of this type of care are very high. Everyone should include long-term care planning in their estate plan.

The good news is that Medicaid will help pay for long-term care in some cases. However, there are strict asset and income limitations. Medicaid planning involves preserving as many assets as possible while still qualifying for Medicaid.

Asset Protection

Asset protection is the adoption of strategies to guard one's wealth. Asset protection is a component of financial planning intended to protect one's assets from creditor claims. Individuals and business entities use asset protection techniques to limit creditors' access to certain valuable assets while operating within the bounds of debtor-creditor law.

Avoid Probate

Save on legal fees and reduce the stress for your family members. Probate is the formal legal process that gives recognition to a will and appoints the executor or personal representative who will administer the estate and distribute assets to the intended beneficiaries.

We can help you access Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits. This is a monthly pension benefit that provides tax-free payments to Veterans who served during wartime.

In addition to being available for Veterans, single surviving spouses and dependent children are also eligible for this benefit. In order to qualify for this pension, the Veteran or their surviving family need to meet means-tested income and asset thresholds. Virginia is accredited with the Veteran's Administration to handle claims.
