Do you have a Trust in place to protect yourself and your loved ones if something happens to you?
Have you properly named your beneficiaries?
Do you have a plan in place in the event that you become incapacitated?

At the Law Offices of Ginger R. Lore, P.A. we can help develop a plan to protect you and your family if a tragedy occurs and upon your passing.

Estate Planning
Through estate planning you can name a guardian for your minor children; state your wishes for your financial affairs, health care and end-of-life care if you become incapacitated; and identify family members and other loved ones that you wish to receive your property after your death.
Probate
After a person dies, ownership of his or her property, assets and personal effects must be passed on to the beneficiaries (heirs). “Probate” is the legal name given to this process.
Guardianship
In a guardianship, a person, institution, or agency is appointed by the court to manage the affairs of another ("ward”).   In Florida, a guardian must be represented by an attorney.  A guardian has a duty to act in the ward’s best interest and must file certain reports with the court.
VA Aid and Attendance Benefits
Often veterans or their dependents may be eligible under the service and medical requirements, but do not qualify because of assets or income. There are a number of options to remedy this, including restructuring assets or setting up a VA Aid and Attendance Benefits Trust.
Special Needs Planning
A Special Needs Trust, also known as a Supplemental Needs Trust, allows families to manage their financial resources to provide for their loved ones -- without affecting their eligibility for government benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.
Medicaid Planning
Medicaid planning provides options that allow a loved one to receive benefits without having to give up hard-earned savings.
