Estate Planning and Special Needs Trusts:
Have you spoken to someone to ensure your child’s eligibility for the services he will need as an adult? Often, well-meaning parents and relatives can actually hurt their children by leaving them funds, disqualifying them from government benefits and services. If your child has assets of his/her own, there are ways to protect them too. It is essential that this type of estate planning is done by a special needs lawyer who understands the challenges faced by families with special needs children.
