What Immediate Family Care Needs Do We Help Clients With?
At the Law Offices of Andrew Cohen, our Santa Clarita estate planning attorneys have extensive experience helping clients handle the following situations:
Special needs trusts: This is a legal arrangement which allows a physically or mentally disabled person, or a person who is chronically ill, to receive income without reducing their eligibility for public assistance (disability benefits, supplemental security income, Medicare, or Medicaid).
Guardianships: A guardianship is a legal means of protecting children under the age of 18. We help clients ensure that the legal and physical custody of a child is properly cared for, and we also ensure that a child’s finances are properly managed.
Conservatorship: A conservatorship is granted by the court when a judge determines that an adult is unable to care for their well-being or finances. The conservator will be appointed by the court to handle the adult’s care and/or finances.
Power of attorney: A general power of attorney is a legal agreement that allows one person to have authority over another person’s legal and financial matters. A power of attorney can result in broad legal authority or limited legal authority to make decisions about another person’s property, medical care, or finances. A power of attorney may not be valid if the principal becomes disabled, so it is critical to properly draft the document so it may be used upon disability and incapacity.
Durable power of attorney: A durable power of attorney is similar to a power of attorney, but there will be language included that allows the arrangement to continue the authority if the principal becomes incapacitated. A durable power of attorney will remain effective until the principal passes away or if they revoke the powers they have granted.
