Elder Law Attorneys in Virginia Beach
MNR Law is here to help you and your loved ones navigate the areas of the law that affect seniors. This can be in several areas, including:
MNR Law can help you set up a guardianship so someone of your choosing can make legal decisions for your when you are unable to do it on your own.
If no planning has been done on the behalf of a senior who becomes incapacitate for some reason, i.e. coma, Alzheimer’s, etc., the court is called in to appoint a conservator. This person, like a guardian, is sanctioned by the court to be responsible for managing the affairs of the person who can no longer make his or her own decisions about money and health care.
Asset Protection Planning
By working with an experienced elder law attorney, you can come up with a plan to protect your assets from future creditors, divorce, lawsuits or judgments.
Long-Term Care Planning
Part of coming up with a long-term care plan is making sure your assets are protected over the long haul and that your family is taken care of. It’s also important to have an attorney determine your legal rights when it comes to applying for Medicaid or other public benefit programs, which can often be cumbersome and hard to understand.
