People are sometimes surprised to discover that a comprehensive estate plan will include provisions for special needs family members and also guardianships.
When families have concerns about the particular needs of disabled individuals, estate planning documents can often be tailored to meet those needs, while still preserving an individual’s eligibility for government benefits, if that is an issue. This might also include the preparation of special needs trusts
In addition, when needed, as a complement to estate planning services, some firms, such as the Curtin Law Office, are able to serve clients by preparing guardianship petitions, and representing clients in the probate court, either putting forth or defending against guardianship petitions and related issues.
If your family situation involves either of these concerns, it might be a good idea to check with your estate planning attorney to ensure all necessary steps have been taken.
