Focusing on the Planning Needs of the Elderly
When you get older, estate planning becomes vitally important, not only to preserve your assets but to plan for future events such as incapacity, nursing home admission and the need for long-term care. Since your children may play an important role in managing your affairs if you become incapacitated, elder law usually involves the entire family.
At Turner Law, we provide elder law and estate-planning services for families in Decatur, the greater Atlanta area and throughout Georgia. Attorney Robert Turner and our office staff assist families with:
- Long-term care and disability planning
- Planning for nursing home admission and Medicaid eligibility
- Special needs trusts
- Guardianship & Conservatorship
- Elder Abuse
- Becoming a Guardian
With proper estate planning, your family can avoid the difficult and public process of going to court to obtain a guardianship and conservatorship over a loved one. Elder law attorney Robert Turner creates powers of attorney and advance health care directives in which families can decide in advance who has the legal authority to manage a parent’s health care and personal affairs.
By placing assets in trusts, we can also provide for seamless management of those assets in the event of incapacity or death. Our firm also handles probate and estate administration matters for clients after the death of a spouse or parent.
