Miami Special Needs Planning Attorney

Planning for the Future with Someone with Special Needs and Looking for a Florida Special Needs Planning Law Firm Who Will Assist You With Considering All of Your Options To Protect You, or Your Loved Ones, As Easy As Possible?

Often, when a child with special needs (Down’s syndrome, Autism, or other developmental disabilities) becomes an adult, the parents face a situation where their non-verbal or low functioning child is 18 years old, and they (the parents) are unable to protect their child and no longer have a voice in any decisions for their child. Once a child reaches age 18, the child is presumed to have decision-making capacity and the parents’ legal authority ends.

Parents of children with special needs have various options, each with advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation, to establish a new legal authority to continue making important decisions for the child.

About Guardianship

Establishing legal guardianship allows you to assume responsibility for the care of a loved one when he/she can no longer do it for themselves or has some limitations in caring for himself/herself (financially, medically, etc.). It also can apply to minor children or special needs children.

Guardianship is designed to protect incapacitated persons' rights and welfare and safeguard their assets. It can be a complicated process that an experienced attorney best performs. Contact us to tell us about your situation

Reasons for Establishing Legal Guardianship

  • A disabled child becomes an adult
  • Loved one does not have the capacity to sell a house or manage financial affairs
  • Loved one cannot take care of him or herself
  • Minors are to receive assets (life insurance, inheritance, etc.)
  • Mom / Dad shouldn’t be driving
  • Parent has Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other incapacitating medical condition

Special Needs Trust And Planning

Estate planning for families who have a loved one with a disability or special needs can present various challenges. Whether you are looking to secure federal or state-based benefits, arrange for long-term care, or to ensure that you do not otherwise disinherit a loved one, DJ Legal Group can help you plan for the future needs of your family. Individuals with special needs are often the recipients of government-based benefits such as SSI and Medicaid but may jeopardize those benefits when they receive a sizable inheritance or settlement. DJ Legal Group can help customize an estate plan, using various tools to provide long-term care and financial stability.

A special needs trust is established by a settlor of trust to deliver financial benefits to someone who suffers from a physical or mental handicap. The key benefit of a special needs trust is that it is designed in such a way as to preserve the beneficiary’s eligibility for public assistance. When the beneficiary receives assistance from the trust, the assets in the trust are not counted in the beneficiary’s gross income. This allows the beneficiary to maintain eligibility for additional public benefits. Many public assistance programs have income restrictions or limits; the special needs trust works around this problem.
