Estate Planning in Worcester and Middlesex counties, MA
Estate Planning isn’t just for millionaires. Estate Planning is for anyone with property to pass on to more than one beneficiary. If you own a home or property, own a business, have minor children and/or grandchildren, have grown children in their own marriages, have been divorced, have dependants with special needs, then Estate Planning is for you. Here at The Law Offices of James A. Miller, our aim is to provide Estate Planning and Medicaid Planning services to residents of Burlington, Framingham, Waltham and the surrounding Middlesex county communities as well as Worcester, Gardner, Leominster and their surrounding communities. We provide the best estate planning advice throughout Worcester and Middlesex Counties. Our Estate Planning attorneys can draft an Estate Plan, which can safeguard your assets, as well as provide you with strategies to prepare you for future long-term medical costs, like nursing homes.
The cost of extended health care and nursing homes are averaging over $100,000 annually, leaving only the very wealthy able to pay for long term health care programs. Government funded programs like Medicaid have strict financial entry requirements so only those with very limited financial means are eligible. Many people resort to depleting their estate just to qualify. At The Law Offices of James A. Miller, our aim is to provide Medicaid Planning services throughout Worcester and Middlesex Counties. We practice in the areas of Elder Law and Medicaid Planning so that you are able to qualify for government programs like Medicaid without having to compromise your wealth. Early Medicaid Planning can reduce the amount of stress and headache from the financial pressures of paying for long-term care programs. Learn about Medicaid Planning and Medicaid triggers from our qualified Estate Planning and Elder Law attorneys.
Being an executor of an estate in Probate can be complex and time consuming. Probate is the court supervised proceedings of tying up financial loose ends and distributing assets of the deceased. If complications arise, Probate can become a longer process, making it months or even years before any beneficiaries inherit anything. Often times, a good portion of the estate can be wiped out paying the expenses associated with Probate. You can reduce the amount of stress brought on by Probate by consulting with one of our Estate Planning and Probate attorneys about your Probate case. By making Probate a process, you can greatly reduce the problems associated with it.
Trust Administration is the process of administering the Trust after death. There are several steps the successor trustee must take in order to administer the Trust. Notifying heirs, converting titles into assets, protecting the Trust, and making the Trust a viable source of income, are just some of the trustee’s responsibilities. The duties of Trust Administration can vary depending on the complexity of the Trust, and may require the knowledge and experience of a Trust Administration attorney. Consult with one of our Trust Administration attorneys and find out how to make Trust Administration simple and straight forward.
