Miami Elder Law Attorney

What is elder law?

Elder law is a designated area of law that focuses on legal issues that people may face once they reach a certain age. Getting older is a complicated matter within itself, and it may be difficult for some to decide which legal documents they need in order to safeguard their property and assets. Elderly people may need help deciding what is best for their financial future, while maintaining a proper and affordable level of healthcare.

It is ideal to plan for such problems before they arise, which is why it is imperative to hire experienced Miami probate attorney from my firm. I, Susan E. Durre, may be able to help you plan for all issues that might arise once you reach the age of retirement, in order to avoid certain problems in the future.

Elder Law Issues

As people get older, they may start to wonder about their futures. Who will manage their financial affairs if they become unable to do so? Who will administer their estate once they pass? It may be overwhelming to consider, but attorneys who specialize in elder law can help clients with:

They may be able to help an elderly person construct an estate plan that meets their needs and requirements, such as creating a will and certain types of trusts in order to make the probate process easier.

An elder law attorney may also assist with health and personal care planning. This may include creating living trusts and powers of attorney. Financial issues in regards to taxes and living arrangements should also be discussed with a lawyer.

An elderly person may require long-term care in the future, and certain actions may be taken now in order to ensure that the elderly person will be able to afford a specific type of care. Medicare and Medicaid have detailed requirements, and a lawyer may be able to ensure that an elderly person will qualify for Medicare or Medicaid in the near future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal representative, and what are they responsible for? A personal representative is a person you choose and declare in your will to administer your estate. They are responsible for the entire estate administration process, which includes filing tax returns, paying off debts, and distributing your property according to your will. It is a huge responsibility, and the person you choose as an executor must understand what is involved in the estate administration process.
