Why You Should Work With An Elder Law Attorney
From estate planning and probate to guardianships and more, there are many issues that seniors and their caretakers may need to address. The last thing that you or your loved ones need during the later years of your life is to deal with complicated paperwork and court communications. Working with an elder lawyer can save you a significant amount of time, ensure that your affairs are in order, advocate for your rights and interests, and prevent you from making costly mistakes.
Issues Our Boynton Beach Elder Law Attorney Can Help You With
Our lead Palm Beach elder law attorney, Ryan Jay Smollar, can assist you with many of the common needs that seniors have, including, but not limited to:
Medicaid planning – This is a process intended to shield your assets from the strict eligibility requirements of Medicaid so that you can qualify for financial aid for nursing home care when you need it. It typically involves creating a trust and utilizing other legal tools.
Estate planning – This is an essential process that consists of determining what will happen to your assets when you pass away or become incapacitated. It is not just the creation of a simple will, but also (in most cases) a trust, power of attorney, advance directive, and other documents. Having an estate plan ensures that all that you’ve worked hard to accumulate ends up in the right hands. It will also help your loved ones avoid probate (a tedious court process) down the road.
Probate administration – If you’ve been named as an executor of your loved one’s estate, probate is a Florida court process that may be necessary in order to settle said estate. It can be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive. However, Ryan can assist with simplifying the process each step of the way so that you can focus on mourning your loved one and moving forward with your life.
Guardianships – At some point, you may no longer be able to live or make decisions for yourself independently, and it may be necessary for your family (or yourself) to appoint a guardian that you can trust. We can assist with that process and help caregivers.
Exploitation – Because seniors are physically and financially vulnerable, they are often victims of fraudulent schemes and/or abuse and neglect. We can stand up for you (or your family member) and hold guilty parties accountable, potentially recovering compensation that you deserve.
