One of our primary areas of practice is planning a special needs child’s care and future through trusts. Our NY office team brings empathy and firsthand experience to the table when helping you to set up trusts. We review each case and come up with the best strategy to feet your needs.
The trust will help to legally protect estate to ensure that your child still has access to the public benefits he or she will need going forward. Consequently, when that child turns 18, he or she will still be able to receive benefits such as Supplemental Security Income, while the trust manages funds to cover the additional needs of your child.
Although the funds of the trusts cannot pay for basic living expenses, the law stipulates that they can provide supplemental funds for medical devices, therapies, recreational enrichment, and other things that would be considered supplemental costs by the law. We would be happy to discuss how estate planning can benefit your situation and offer comprehensive, knowledgeable advice when it comes to medicaid planning.

As one of the most foundational legal documents in New York State estate planning, your will sets out your wishes for your assets’ disposition after your death in line with the law. An individual who dies without the benefit of a legal will opens the estate to a lengthy, complicated, and expensive probate mechanism. It also leaves your child or spouse (even in case of divorce) dealing with a tremendous amount of uncertainty about how your assets would be divided according to the law. It is easy to prevent these problems with help of one of our estate planning lawyers.
As an essential estate planning device, having a will allows you to pass on belongings, financial assets, and real estate to specified individuals according to your wishes. It also sets out who will be legal guardians to your young children. New York has specific requirements concerning the execution of a will, which must be considered during estate planning. Having the guidance and assistance of a NY estate planning professional ensures that your best wishes are carefully considered, and your will is drafted according to the law and executed properly, following all New York State laws.

In New York, trusts are beneficial because they help avoid probate, tax, and fees, and can protect assets and real estate from creditors. After your death, the assets get passed to the remaining beneficiaries of the trusts.
There are different kinds of trusts that offer various legal benefits including tax benefits, depending upon your unique estate planning situation. Our New York estate planning team would be glad to discuss different types of trusts and strategies with you.
