Specialized Estate Planning Goals

Lake in the Hills attorney, Kevin O'Flaherty, discusses the 8 goals of a good estate plan.

​We have the experience with many special circumstances that could arise that only an experienced estate planning attorney can properly execute. Some of our competitor estate planning lawyers may not have the ability to accomplish your goals, but we are able to. Here are some examples of some special estate plans we have experience with:

  • Estate Tax Avoidance:  We understand how how you work to build and maintain wealth for your family and loved ones. When you pass, your loved ones are the ones who should reap the benefits of your tireless work, not the government. If your estate plan isn't made correctly, state and federal tax could end up consuming at least 35% of your assets. We will help you create a strategy that will completely avoid this estate tax   We work with you to look at every opportunity available under the law to minimize your estate tax exposure and make sure that your loved ones receive the fruits of your labor.
  • Protection of Assets from Creditors: If you are in a job field with high liability, our Lake in the Hills estate planning attorneys offer irrevocable trusts, family limited partnerships, and life estate deeds to make sure creditors cannot go after your assets. In the event of a lawsuit, we can ensure that your home and wealth stay protected and inside your family.
  • Medicaid & Long-Term Care Planning: If you or your parent face the decision of long-term care, you have the opportunity to apply for Medicaid benefits to cover cost related to such care. What many do not know is that in order to receive these Medicaid benefits, you are first required to spend down your assets? You must show that you have less than $2,000.00 in total assets before having Medicaid eligibility. Our Lake in the Hills elder law attorneys use life estate deeds and irrevocable living trusts to make you eligble for Medicaid benefits while also keeping your assets inside of your family and retaining the right of possession of your home. We also have the ability to assist you in protecting assets from collection by the government to satisfy the bills of long-term care after you pass. Medicaid planning beings at least five years after you apply for Medicaid to maximize your options.
  • Special Needs Planning:  There are limits on how much income you can receive and total assets you can accrue without negatively affecting the benefits of Medicaid or social security. If you or your child are disabled, there may arise a problem. However,  our Lake in the Hills special needs attorneys can make it so that you earn an income, accumulate savings, receive gifts and inheritances, and maintain a decent standard of living without losing eligibility for government benefits. If you are the parent of a special needs child, your child's supplemental needs trust should be made into your own estate in order to ensure that any inheritance they will receive will not affect their eligibility for government assistance.

Our Lake in the Hills estate planning attorneys have the experience that is needed to accomplish your individualized goals.
