Rabea Taylor, Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney serving Colorado
Life is uncertain and estate planning attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of your assets during incapacity and at time of death. Many clients also wish to reduce any cost for administering the estate as well as make the process as smooth as possible. Oftentimes capturing values and distribution of heirlooms are forgotten and cause a division among family members. The ultimate goal of each estate plan is determined by the needs of the client. We will determine a holistic approach that best works for you.
PROBATE & TRUST ADMINISTRATION
The death of a family member or loved one can be overwhelming emotionally. We understand that the legal process of administering an estate can be just as overwhelming. Let us help you in handling the legal matters so that you are free from worrying about the legal process and are free to focus on grieving.
GUARDIANSHIPS & CONSERVATORSHIPS
A Guardianship, and possibly a Conservatorship, is needed if a person is incapacitated and can no longer take care of themselves or their finances. As a Guardian and Conservator you will have the legal authority to make healthcare and financial decisions for your family member or loved one.
As you or a loved one ages, you might be concerned about how to pay for long term care. Medicaid is sometimes an option for families struggling to keep up with the cost of long term care. We are here to assist you in determining eligibility and help you through the maze of the qualification process, including the application.
VETERANS’ AID AND ATTENDANCE PENSION
If you are a wartime Veteran, a spouse of a wartime Veteran or a surviving spouse who has not remarried, you might be eligible for a pension paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Such pension is intended to help pay for any unreimbursed medical expenses related to extended or long term care.
SPECIAL NEEDS PLANNING
We understand the importance of protecting individuals with special needs. Understanding the options can be confusing. By planning we can help protect their financial future and prevent disqualification from government benefits in case of an inheritance, gift or lawsuit settlement. Let us help you determine the options available to you.
