Planning for the future is a challenge. Just getting started is difficult. At the Law Office of David W. Sanborn, our Springfield estate planning attorney is well aware of how daunting planning for your estate can be. So we work to make things as easy and comfortable for our clients as possible. Our goal is to educate you about your options and to make you feel at ease with the process.
For more than four decades, we have been helping people develop estate plans that effectively carry out their wishes for the future. We know how important it is that our clients have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they have made arrangements to provide for their loved ones.
Effective Estate Planning Can Take Care of You as Well as Providing for Loved Ones
While wills and trusts are what most people think of when they consider estate plans, there is a great deal more to it. For example, by planning now, you may be able to preserve assets and still be able to qualify for Medicaid should long-term care become necessary. You can also designate a person to make health care decisions for you if you become incapacitated.
We recommend that everyone consider the following aspects of estate planning:
- Health care proxies/living wills
- Durable powers of attorney
- Medicaid planning
- Special Needs Trust
Medicaid will look at your finances for the previous five years. They will look for any transfers of property that seem to have been made to avoid those assets being applied to Medicaid costs for your care. We can help you plan in advance and arrange your assets in such a way as to protect them.
