Protecting Your Interests And Assets
As we age, many of us go through changes in our lives. For family members and spouses, it can be a stressful time. At The Law Office of Rollie R. Hanson, S.C., in West Allis, Wisconsin, we can help reduce your level of stress through our elder law practice.
Elder law provides a set of legal and financial tools to protect your assets, care for your loved ones, and plan for potential incapacity. Greater Milwaukee elder law attorney Rollie R. Hanson, a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, provides counseling and advice to seniors and their families throughout the Greater Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin area.
Planning For Incapacity
Protecting Your Assets
Many families are concerned that nursing home expenses will wipe out their savings. This can be especially true when one spouse requires long-term care, while the other spouse remains healthy at home. The independent spouse will have great concern for protecting assets to make sure he or she will have enough to live on. We can help with Medicaid planning (also known as Title 19 planning) to help protect and preserve assets for a spouse and other beneficiaries instead of having it all go toward the expense of long-term care.
