ATTENTIVE NORTH CAROLINA ATTORNEY HELPS RESPONSIBLE ADULTS BECOME GUARDIANS FOR MINORS
We are committed to advocating for the best interests of children, helping to establish comprehensive estate plans that plan for guardianships in which they can receive reliable and compassionate care. Attorney Andrew Sabourin at Lake Norman Wealth Counsel helps clients to:
- Appoint a guardian — It is important to name a trusted person to take over guardianship duties for your children in case the need ever arises. When a guardian is not named in advance of a parent’s death or incapacitation, the court may appoint someone the parent might not have chosen. You want to select a guardian who is willing and able to offer care and will raise your children according to your parental philosophies.
Our attorney will address your guardianship concerns and answer any questions you may have. Protecting the well-being of children is always a top priority.
RESPECTED LAW FIRM ESTABLISHES CONSERVATORSHIPS FOR INCAPACITATED ADULTS
If you may be responsible for a future incapacitated adult or you have a child who will never be able to live independently, it is important to explore estate planning techniques that takes these scenarios into consideration. Attorney Andrew Sabourin at Lake Norman Wealth Counsel provides assistance for clients who wish to:
- Become a conservator — We can guide you in the process of having yourself or another qualified loved one appointed as conservator through an estate plan for an elderly parent or future disabled adult. A conservator is responsible for managing the financial needs of the person they care for, and for making decisions in their best interests.
- Execute a trust to benefit a special needs adult — If you may be responsible for a future disabled adult or child, your estate plan should include a special needs trust to provide financial assistance after your passing. Leaving money directly to a person who receives Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits could make them ineligible for assistance. By creating a trust, you prepare a consistent income stream that eases their financial burdens without jeopardizing eligibility. Your estate plan can also include provisions for requesting that the court appoint a conservator for your loved one.
Our lawyer and Lake Norman Wealth Counsel are thorough and caring in our approach to your conservatorship needs.
