We can assist you with the following elder law issues: planning and applying for long-term care Medicaid; filing for or against a guardianship petition in probate court; reviewing, explaining and preparing estate plan documents; and many other matters pertaining to the legal needs an individual may have. Even if it is only making a telephone call for a client because of confusing correspondence received in the mail, we are happy to help in any way we can.
Properly planning for long-term care Medicaid is very important because of the many rules regarding Medicaid eligibility. We can guide you through the Medicaid maze so that when the time comes, you are not financially devastated by the costs of long-term care. Additionally, we will help you with the application process and annual Medicaid reviews, to ensure that your Medicaid coverage will continue seamlessly in the future.
A guardianship petition is filed in probate court, by an individual who wishes to become the guardian of one’s person, estate or both. This may be needed when someone does not have a Durable General Power of Attorney and/or Healthcare Power of Attorney naming a family member or friend to assist them with their financial and/or health care needs, and when they are not able to take care of these matters themselves.
We are experienced in handling guardianship issues, whether it is an amicable or contested situation. We have represented guardians, wards, family members and our attorneys have volunteered as guardians with Lorain County Volunteer Guardianship.
We enjoy being able to help people in any way we can to make life easier and reduce stress. You can trust us to do our best to help you with your immediate and long-term elder law issues. From simply making a few telephone calls to litigating an issue in court, we are the attorneys for you.
