Probate & Estates

Probate & Estates

The legal ramifications of aging are numerous, but sadly underexplored by seniors and those responsible for their care. It is important to do the planning when you are still able to make good decisions.   Many people are caught unawares by a lack of planning. This can have numerous negative effects, including:

  • Other people need to make decisions for you without the knowledge of what you want
  • Difficulty distributing assets when the deceased passes
  • Inability to claim disability or other payouts
  • Inadequate long-term care resources
  • Financial difficulties
  • An unclear path to guardianship for those who can no longer self-advocate
  • Lack of protection against abuse

… and more. Understanding the areas of elderly law is critical, as is having a good attorney on your side before the worst happens. That’s where the Law Offices of Alan Solomon can help. What Issues Do the Elderly Face? There exist three main categories of elder law, which are:

  • Financial planning, estate planning, estate administration and taxes
  • Disability, Medicaid and Medicare distributions, and preparation for long-term care
  • Conservatorship and guardianship.

IT IS COMMON for your loved one to need you to handle his/her affairs but the loved one cannot make legal decisions due to his/her capacity in old age.  In that scenario, we represent family members to allow the family members to get the correct court documents which are recognized so that the family member can make legal decisions for the incapacitated.

These are the more routine aspects of planning for the golden years. Unfortunately, the elderly also face many difficulties that younger generations do not today. Because they are less digitally savvy, they are more likely to face predation from online criminals. Caretakers may abuse them or steal their money, while their wishes aren’t always respected when they pass. Preventing this is one of the prime goals of setting up documentation beforehand, which requires the help of a knowledgeable attorney. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for assistance today by calling 301.913.5884.
