Medicaid Planning and Asset Protection

Long-term care in a skilled nursing home can be very expensive. The average cost for nursing care is between $4,500 and $6,000 per month. How long will your retirement savings last? You can afford that care if you qualify for Medicaid and avoid the penalty periods Medicaid imposes for gifting and estate recovery after your death. Let our skilled legal team review your plan to see if you are eligible for Medicaid and to protect the assets you currently have.

Estate Administration And Planning

For many people, the thought of addressing the issue of their own mortality is understandably difficult. It usually takes a bit of coaxing by a family member to get that person to start putting “paperwork” into a folder for the inevitable lawyers consultation.

On the other hand, we also think about our families and the burden that will be placed on them if we leave everything for them to figure out after we are gone. We at Brandy Austin Law Firm, have thought about these same questions and have helped many people craft their estate plans. We can help you, too.

  • The schedule is mostly yours to decide.

Probate And Will Contests

After a person passes away, his or her estate must be finalized and distributed to the living heirs. If a person left a will, he or she has already determined how to distribute the assets in the estate. If there is no will, assets will be distributed according to state law. The law provides for a minimum percentage to go to certain heirs, such as spouses and children.

However, sometimes the heirs to an estate do not believe that part or all of the will is valid. Someone may challenge the will and file a lawsuit in court to stop the probate process until a judge can review the evidence and decide how to proceed. We will help you through the probate process and assist with any litigation over the estate that might arise.

Everyone Should Have A Will

A will ensures that everything you have worked for during your life will go to the people you want it to go to. Having a will can prevent problems among children, stepchildren, second marriages and long-lost cousins.
