Elder law is becoming more important as baby boomers approach their golden years. Elder law is a distinct practice, designed to help the elderly with issues they face, such as nursing home issues, Medicaid planning and division of assets, health care planning, estate planning, and guardianship.
Comprehensive estate planning covers nearly every aspect of life. It begins with protecting yourself and your personal dignity, and extends to protecting your loved ones and your hard-earned assets.
Probate and estate administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after death. Assets to be transferred under terms of a will must go through probate.
“Guardianship” grants an individual legal authority to manage the affairs of a loved one who is unable to make their own decisions due to physical or mental incapacitation.
Special Needs Planning
A special needs trust is a powerful legal tool that can help protect the financial interests of a child with special needs. One of the main benefits of a special needs trust is that it allows parents or caregivers to access money now to care for a child with special needs, without affecting the child's eligibility for Medicaid and other government benefits in the future.
Planning for how you will exit from your business should be an integral part of your estate and retirement planning. Proper planning now can provide you with retirement income, reduced income and estate taxes, and even let you benefit a charity if you so choose, regardless of whether you transfer your business to family members, to employees, or to an outside buyer.
