Meeting Your ChildsSpecial Needs
If you have a developmentally disabled child, you probably worry what will happen to them when you are gone.
We can help you put a simple plan in place to ensure your loved one the greatest independence. This way you protect them when you can no longer be there yourself.
"Love in such a way that the person you love feels free."
- Thich Nhat Hanh.
Special Needs Attorney
A special needs attorney helps families provide care and support for a loved one with mental or physical disabilities. Special needs planning allows you to leave an inheritance without upending necessary government benefits and programs and in a manner that promotes their their health & happiness.
Your Adult Disabled Child
If you have a developmentally disabled young adult, an Article 17a or Article 81 guardianship must be instituted when the child reaches the age of 18. Let us provide a plan to make your son or daughter as happy and independent as possible.
Special Needs Planning may include:
First Party Supplemental Needs Trust
A Self-Settled Supplemental Needs Trust might be needed when a person settles a lawsuit and is often required by the Court. It is important that such trusts comply with current law to safeguard Medicaid and SSI benefits. Let us work with your personal injury attorney to insure the most efficient means of protecting such assets.
Third Party Supplemental Needs Trust
A Third-Party Supplemental Needs Trust (also called a Special Needs Trust) should be set up for any loved one who receives government benefits so that money you give and assets you leave at death do not end up disqualifying them of much needed government benefits.
