For parents with children with disabilities, whether minor or adult, it’s a good idea to take the extra step of meeting with an Alpine special needs planning attorney. This gives you the opportunity to set up the best possible scenario for your child if you are no longer able to provide care for him or her on your own.
For example, you will work with the special needs lawyer to determine how to set up funding for your child’s expenses after your death. You will also use the opportunity to name guardians for your child (again, whether a minor or an adult who needs assistance). You can also have a say in how the money will be used to care for your child.
