Lead Counsel independently verifies Special Needs Trust attorneys in Bethany Beach and checks their standing with Delaware bar associations.Our Verification Process and Criteria
A special needs trust is used to ensure a loved one who is disabled and needs long-term care or other assistance can use the money and property in the trust without jeopardizing Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid benefits. Assets other than a car or house and furnishings disqualify eligibility for those benefits.
To ensure benefits will not be put in jeopardy, you should consult a Bethany Beach attorney who is experienced in establishing special needs trusts. The trust must be handled precisely and conform to the applicable law and regulations.
In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.
An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.
