For those of us in the middle class, the biggest threat to our estate is not taxes - it’s long term care. Find out how you can protect the assets you’ve spent a lifetime building. We will discuss asset transfers; wills; trusts; insurance; and other means of sheltering your property from the exorbitant costs of long term care.
If you have a child (or adult child) with special needs, chances are you worry about leaving something behind for that child. You may also be concerned about how that child will be cared for once his or her parents are no longer around. Many of the same long term care concerns apply. We will also discuss guardianships and special needs trusts, to ensure that your special needs child is taken care of for life.
