Florida Elder Lawyer
As you approach retirement, your legal issues don’t always decrease—especially when you need to protect your estate in Florida. Seniors face a number of unique legal concerns planning for the future, and even caretakers or loved ones of the elderly may find themselves facing some difficult legal challenges.
This makes it essential to work with a qualified elder law attorney to address your elder law matters. Such issues can include:
- Preservation of Estate. Your estate plan needs to be up to date, including estate documents like Power of Attorney and healthcare papers. By planning ahead, you can ensure you leave a legacy for your loved ones, even after receiving skilled nursing facility/Medicaid benefits.
- Long-Term Planning. This type of planning will help ensure you and your loved ones are cared for in the future. You’ll plan for disabilities, health concerns, nursing homes, or other long-term care options.
- Medicaid Qualification. Long-term care in Florida isn’t cheap, but with the help of an attorney, you can qualify for Medicaid much faster and with less chance of penalties. This is especially important because Medicaid rules change constantly and can be complex to understand.
- Veteran Benefits. If you are a veteran who doesn’t know where to start in receiving the benefits you deserve, calling on an attorney can help.
- Caretaker Services. Caring for an elderly person as a caretaker or Power of Attorney agent can be stressful, especially when you don’t know your rights. You can take advantage of legal services to combat any points of concern, including the scope of your rights and any fraud issues that may arise.
