New Jersey Special Needs Planning Attorney

When it comes to taking care of your family, nothing is more important. You are always willing to make sacrifices for your loved ones and make decisions that are in their best interests. At Borenstein, McConnell and Calpin provide estate planning services for a wide range of clients, including families with disabled children. Special needs planning plays a huge role in how you manage your estate.


When including disabled children or family members in your estate plan, you can ensure that any government assistance that they may currently receive is not jeopardized by the money that you would like to leave behind for them through your estate. Our special needs planning attorneys in New Jersey and New Jersey want to explain more about why this type of planning is something you should consider.


Our Special Needs Planning Attorneys in New Jersey Help Families with Disabled Children

If you have a child with disabilities, you shouldn’t hesitate to take action and create a plan that accommodates their legal, medical, and emotional needs. Any unexpected death or tragedy can drastically change the entire dynamic of your family. That’s why you need to take additional measures to protect a child or loved one with special needs.


We can establish a comprehensive plan that provides your family with additional protection in certain scenarios. Here is how we can help:


  • Creating a special needs trust
  • Drafting legal documents outlining exactly how you want your child to receive care
  • Establishing other legal measures that provide your child with medical and financial protection

What Are Special Needs Trusts and Why Are They Important?

Special needs trusts are intended for individuals living with disabilities that are currently receiving government benefits. A special needs trust will enable them to receive an inheritance of other monies during their lifetime without jeopardizing their government assistance. In other words, they won’t exceed the asset threshold that will disqualify them from receiving benefits from Social Security or Medicaid.


Establishing a special needs trust is no small task and it is never something that you should attempt to do on your own. Instead, you should always look to the guidance of an experienced special needs planning attorney. When you work with the professionals at BMC, we will review every detail of this important document with you to ensure that your needs are met without stress.
