Asset Protection Lawyers in Mooresville
Asset Protection Planning for Iredell, Mecklenburg & Surrounding Counties
Your assets are important to you, and it can be daunting to think about what will happen to those assets in the future. Asset protection planning is a way you can proactively protect your estate from future creditors, divorce, or lawsuits. An expert asset protection planner can assess your situation and ensure your plan aligns with your goals.
The Law Office of Natalie J. Miller can help you, your attorney-in-fact, or other loved ones, protect and preserve your assets so they can be used to sustain and improve your quality of life. Whether you are pre-planning for care or in a long-term care crisis, we can assist you and your family in obtaining assistance, if needed, to finance the required level of care. This includes assistance from the programs listed below.
We can assist in determining your eligibility for aid and attendance under the Veteran’s Administration Benefits program(s). Aid and assistance can help paying for home care as well as care in a facility. In addition, at the appropriate time we can put you in touch with the workers at the Veteran's Administration (VA) to assist in applying for appropriate benefits.
We can work with you to determine if you qualify for assistance with assisted living or rest home care through the Special Assistance program. This program has a restrictive income cap and covers various forms of assisted living centers, including those known as memory care units or Alzheimer’s programs. There are ways to protect certain types of income that may exceed the cap to gain eligibility. Finally, we can assist you in gaining eligibility and applying for benefits once you meet the tests for Special Assistance qualification.
Special Needs Planning
When you have a loved one with special needs, there are additional complexities to consider when protecting your assets and ensuring they will be provided for in the future. Our attorneys offer financial planning and asset protection services to best assist people with special needs. We can help you ensure your estate and trust assets are properly distributed so as to provide long-term security without disqualifying your special needs loved ones from government and other benefits they need.
Medicaid Planning, or Skilled Nursing Benefits
We can work with you to determine if you qualify for assistance with nursing home care through the Medicaid program. Medicaid does not have an income cap like the Special Assistance program, but many people have more resources than are allowable under the Medicaid regulations. In full accordance with Medicaid rules, we can help you with strategies to gain eligibility, which will protect and preserve as much of your assets as possible to sustain and improve your quality of life in the future. If you are seeking assistance to pay for care through government programs like the Veteran's Administration, Special Assistance, or Medicaid, our Mooresville elder law estate planning attorneys can help guide you through the confusing rules and regulations to obtain the results you desire. You may also want to review our estate planning section regarding wills, durable powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, trusts, and similar documents.
