Why Do You Need An Elder Law Attorney?
As you age, you become more vulnerable financially. Scammers, creditors, declining mental and physical health, and death are all threats to the wealth and stability you have worked hard to build. Adults over the age of 65 or who are nearing retirement have a number of legal concerns that they need to address as well; an elder law attorney is the ideal professional to assist you with these issues and protect all of your assets so you can pass on the kind of legacy you want to your children, grandchildren, and other loved ones.
What Can Elder Law, P.A., Do For You?
Boca Raton elder law Attorney Ryan Jay Smollar can represent you in a variety of situations. He can prepare all of the documents and legal tools you need, and personalize them to your unique specifications based on your goals, family dynamics, financial circumstances, and more. He can also help families avoid elder exploitation before it occurs!
He is well-versed in the following matters:
Estate planning: As you get older, you need to come to terms with the fact that time is limited, and opportunities are short. While you still have time and capacity, it’s important for you to get your affairs in order. You should make a will, a trust, a power of attorney, and other documents that clearly outline your wishes for what you want to happen to your assets when you pass away or become incapacitated.
Medicaid planning: More and more seniors are requiring some form of long-term care during the final decade(s) of their lives, but Medicare doesn’t cover stays in a nursing home, and neither do most private insurances. By utilizing trusts and other tools, seniors can shield their assets from counting against their Medicaid eligibility (which is income and resource-restricted) and ensure that they don’t lose their life savings to nursing home costs or become a financial burden to their kids.
Probate: One of the hardest parts about growing older is losing other friends and family members. If you have lost a spouse, or have been named as the executor of a family member’s or friend’s will, you may have to walk through probate administration (settling their affairs via the Florida court system). Probate can be time-consuming and stressful, and if you make mistakes, you may open yourself up to lawsuits or fines. Let Elder Law, P.A., take care of it for you so you can grieve in peace.
Tax planning: If you have a large estate and sizable assets, you can work with Elder Law, P.A. to find legal ways of minimizing taxes so you can leave more to your loved ones.
Social security: If you are having trouble accessing government benefits like Social Security (or pensions, disability, veteran’s, or other benefits), then the Boca Raton elder law attorney at Elder Law, P.A. can help you with the application and appeals process, if necessary.
Guardianships: There may come a point in your life where you need to rely on someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf about your medical care, your finances, your living situation, and more. Ryan Jay Smollar can help seniors and their caretakers make these delicate decisions.
