Don’t go Broke in a Nursing Home:
Our Georgetown Elder Law attorneys can help you navigate the process and plan how to protect assets and your life savings to keep them in your possession and in your family. We can help married couples make sure they have income at home to help the spouse pay her bills in case the other spouse had to go to a nursing home. We can plan and draft your will to shield assets from the rising nursing home rates and from medical costs upon the death of the first spouse. We can transfer assets to a Medicaid asset protection trust that will shield assets and limit capital gains taxes and we can implement other savings strategies. Come see us and find out what we can do to help you.
Getting Through Probate Without the Stress
The loss of a loved one is always a stressful and emotional time, made even more difficult by having to deal with the probate of the estate. Strategic planning during your lifetime may avoid the need to probate your estate, but even after a person passes, there are options that your loved ones can explore with one of our attorneys. Texas offers several tools we can use as an alternative to probate in certain cases.
Our attorneys in Georgetown are happy to help you in probate matters in Williamson or surrounding counties. We will help you fully understand and navigate the probate process, which may mean circumventing it entirely.
Come to Us with Any Questions About Elder Law
Elder Law is an umbrella term for a variety of laws and regulations relating to concerns that arise as you age. This includes not only estate planning and probate, but also guardianship and long term care planning. Long term care planning includes exploring long term care insurance for those who are able to purchase coverage, as well as Medicaid benefits and Veterans benefits to help pay nursing home expenses. If you are entering your golden years, it is time to consult one of our attorneys to discuss the particular legal strategies which can help protect you and your estate as you age. You and your loved ones will be happy you did.
To start, we should think about how you will be cared for as you age. Will you be able to stay at home? Will you be able to afford care in an assisted living center or nursing home if you need care outside the home? Will you be able to rely on Medicaid benefits? These questions and many more can be addressed under the guidance of our Georgetown elder law attorneys.
