At Denise Jomarron Legal Group ("DJ Legal Group"), we believe that there is no time like the present to work on your estate plan. Many individuals think there is no need for estate planning because they are young or have no assets. While this may be true, the fact is that even those with little to no assets have thought about what they would like to see happen when they are no longer with us.
Guardianships are designed to protect the welfare and rights of individuals who cannot handle their own affairs. Florida law requires the Courts to appoint a guardian for minors in circumstances where a minor's parents die or become incapacitated, or if a child receives an inheritance, legal settlement or insurance policy proceeds exceeding the amount allowed by statute.
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.
Elder law is an area of legal practice that focuses on the aging population.
