Planning to Protect Your Special Needs Child
Future care planning for a child with special needs is often a difficult step for parents to take, which is why we do everything we can here at the Palm Desert Law Group, APC to make the process as easy as possible for you and your family.
Our mission is to liberate parents from the fear they have about their child’s future and empower them to make the very best decisions possible about how to protect their special needs child for life.
Special planning must be done to ensure your child has the competent, loving care they need.
Our Special Needs Trusts are carefully designed to ensure that the beneficiary is afforded the protection provided by a personalized and well-designed Special Needs Trust.
If you have a child or a loved one who is disabled or otherwise not able to care for themselves, special planning must be done. When parents fail to plan, they may inadvertently disqualify their child from essential governmental benefits. Without proper guidance, parents often leave their money in ways that do not serve their special needs child and leave them unprotected.
