A Michigan living trust provides privacy in a way a will cannot. A will is probated and made part of the public record. A trust remains private and does not need court approval and is not made public. A will distributes assets once probate is over and does not allow you to manage your assets in the future.
Planning for your future and the future of your beneficiaries can be tough, but it can be even harder when planning for persons with disabilities. We understand how challenging it can be for you and your family, especially if this is the first time developing an estate plan, that’s why Longstreet Elder Law & Estate PlanningP.C. is here to give your family peace of mind for the future.
Through proper Medicaid planning, we can help you protect your financial assets, while remaining eligible for Medicaid. You should never think that it is too late to plan for your future. Medicaid planning involves responsibly considering your needs and goals for the remainder of your life.
At Longstreet Elder Law & Estate PlanningP.C, our Medicaid planning lawyers will sit down with you and determine the most appropriate strategy for you.
Far too often, people don’t think it’s a problem to avoid working with elder law and estate attorneys in Michigan because they feel that their estates are relatively simple. They see those fillable forms available for purchase, do so, complete them as best they can and then assume that their affairs are in order. Unfortunately, people who take this approach often wish that they had contacted elder law and estate attorneys in Michigan well before they did, as when the time comes to enter a will into probate, it’s usually too late to make any real changes.
Don’t assume that all you need to do is fill out a blank will, sign it and put it in your drawer for safe keeping. Every situation is different, every plan is different and therefore every approach to estate planning should be uniquely assembled for every family. The prospect of contacting estate attorneys in Michigan may seem daunting or even unnecessary, but the bottom line is that doing so could lead to more of your assets being protected and your inheritance passing to your intended beneficiaries more efficiently after you pass away.
This experience is what makes the difference. We specialize on specific needs for elders.
