Estate Planning

The estate planning process is inevitable and yet many tend to avoid the discomfort of such issues because it relates to death and dying. The only question is do you wan't to get ahead of the issue, or be bothered with difficult questions during a difficult time AND pay much more in taxes than necessary? The answer to that is obvious.

Quit delaying and take control of your future today, rather than being forced to react during a difficult time. A majority of Americans lack basic wills, thus leading to a tortorous probate process. Probate is generally required when an estate's assets exceed $200k, but through our services, you can establish Revocable Living Trusts.

The revocable living trust has been an important estate-planning technique for many years, and is the foundation for most estate plans. Thus, it is important to understand how a revocable living trust functions, their advantages and, most importantly, whether the advantages are applicable to their situation.

Aside from taxes, there are other significant issues surrounding estate and elder law. We are happy to meet with you to discuss issues such as probate, advanced health care directives, durable powers of attorney, simple wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable living trusts and other estate planning strategies. Implementing the proper strategy can help you achieve your financial goals regarding federal estate taxes, federal gift taxes, and state taxes. Discussions surrounding estate planning often involve the whole family.

Medicaid trust planning

Medicaid planning arises via the facts end-of-life and long-term health care is often unreasonable expensive. This fact holds even for middle class families. Medicaid provides assistance for those who qualify. The assistance is means-based and differs by state, but frequently income and assets are the determiners. Medicaid Planning consists of strategies which make assets legally inaccessible. Follow this link for further information on Medicaid Planning strategies.

Elder Law

HIIPA release forms, trusts, DPOA, and advance health care directives are only some of the things which make elder/eldery law unique. Often, many of these topics arise as part of larger estate planning arrangements. This subject deals with difficult questions, but delaying often only serves to compound problems and stress during an already difficult time. It's thus imperative to begin the process early and not to be discouraged if you have yet to make arrangements. Please browse our our articles on:

 

• Guardianship:

Guardianship, or related conservatorship, is an integral component of elder law and care. This part of elder law protects the elderly by ensuring financial, health and legal interests are protected from possible fraud, neglect and abuse. These varied interests are partially protected through various documents such as Advanced Health Care Directives and Durable Powers of Attorney. These documents properly protect the wishes and desires of the elderly.

Elder law is vitally important and we take this responsibility seriously at Cloud Peak Law. We have seen the damage caused by ignoring the many nuances and pitfalls which make elder law unique. We cannot sufficiently stress the importance of choosing a competent advisor to protect your interests. Following this vain, we are proud members of the Wyoming Elder Law Counsel. This distinction sets us apart from other elder law attorneys. Elderly law often requires advance planning due to legal waiting periods before tax strategies can be fully implemented.
