Last updated on: March 15, 2023

Whether you are a new parent reckoning with the prospect of raising a special needs child for the first time or an experienced mother or father to a special needs child looking for guidance, The Matus Law Group is here for you. Our team of special needs trust lawyers in New Jersey has unique, personal experience with the joys and challenges of raising special needs children. We have seen how arduous, but also how beautiful this labor of love can be. We know that when your child has a disability, there is a lot to understand and plan for. We understand the challenges that come with raising a child with special needs, including emotional, practical, and financial planning, and are committed to offering you the necessary assistance for each one of them.

1. Financial.

The expenses of raising a special needs child start with medical bills but go so much further. There’s no way around it — it’s expensive. Our team can help you assess your child’s short-term and long-term needs, and the cost associated with these needs. We can introduce you to tools like special needs trusts and government benefits that will help you be able to afford those needs and costs. The Matus Group can help you use your time, effort, and other resources wisely to ensure your disabled child is provided for throughout their childhood and adulthood.

2. Emotional.

We understand your feelings because we’ve felt them ourselves. We think it is important to work with professionals who have been in your shoes whenever possible. We know what makes life different for families with special needs children — the good and the bad — and we keep these things in mind when working with you, whether we’re working on an estate planning matter, real estate transaction, or a business law matter. 

3. Practical.

Maybe you need to live close to the facilities that help your child thrive. Maybe you need to live close to loved ones who support you and your child. Maybe you need to arrange for your child’s care in the event that something happens to you. Maybe you want to start a business of your own because your job doesn’t offer you the flexibility you need to raise your child. The Matus Law Group can help you with any of these practical challenges as well.

If you are looking for an attorney who understands your situation as a parent of a child with special needs, look no further. The Matus Law Group is here for you. Contact our team today.

Ensuring a Secure Future for Your Special Needs Child

When a loved one or a family member has special needs, long-term planning is essential. In New Jersey, a crucial aspect of this planning process is creating a special needs trust. This type of trust allows you to set aside funds for your loved one’s care and expenses without impacting their eligibility for governmental programs such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, and housing funds. These programs are essential for individuals with special needs, as they provide critical support for their medical and living expenses.

With a special needs trust, you can take important steps towards securing your child’s financial future and provide them with access to the assistance they need. A trust can help plan for unexpected situations such as changes in government benefits or a sudden need for additional medical care or support.

At The Matus Law Group, our team of experienced New Jersey special needs lawyers may be able to assist you with establishing a special needs trust, selecting a trustee, and creating a comprehensive care plan that takes into account the specific needs of the individual with special needs. Our team offers compassionate and skilled legal services, ensuring that your loved one receives the care and support they need. Contact us today at (732) 281 – 0060 to schedule a consultation.
