What Is An Elder Law Attorney and How Can They Help You?
Elder law attorneys have a special knowledge about laws that are aimed to assist/help the elderly population have a secure and comfortable life during their retirement. Besides their legal expertise, elder law attorneys also understand the mental and physical difficulties an old person may be going through. Because of this, they can better assist elder clients with their medical and assets planning in Wes Des Moines, IA. Often a spouse will require healthcare costs that are depleting the assets intended to for the use of both the husband and wife for the balance of their lives. Attention needs to be given as to how best to preserve assets and still secure the health care. Too often a spouse will place another spouse in a skilled care nursing home and spend most if not all of the assets for this care leaving the other spouse in or near poverty. Some planning is available to alleviate such a tragedy but it requires advance planning.
What Is Probate Law?
When someone dies, all his possessions including real estate, financial assets and personal effects and even retirement funds may be subject to probate. The assets subject to the probate process includes those assets that are in the name of the person that died only or beneficiary designations to his or her estate in insurance policies, investments, retirement funds. If there are probate assets the transfer of these assets will be controlled by a will, or if no will the provisions in the state code will control to whom these assets will be transferred. With a will the person determines to whom these assets will go They may include immediate family members, close friends, charities, or other heirs. This process is called "probate". Probate is perceived by many persons as costly and too time consuming. Often this is true. At Young & Rogers Law we urge persons to consider using a Revocable Living Trust as the centerpiece of their estate planning. If properly prepared and funded this will often avoid the probate process and has many other favorable features as well.
