About Elder Law and Medicaid Consultations

    An attorney specializing in elder law helps older people and their families or caregivers in Delaware with elder-specific legal issues, estate planning and long term care planning.

    Many of these attorneys spent a great deal of their time helping individuals or couples qualify for Medicaid and preserve assets from Medicaid spend down and recovery. Property ownership, special transfer allowances, application for hardship review, Miller trusts and family-beneficial use of spend down monies are areas where their services can protect family members and healthy spouses from undue hardship. Although they typically can't charge to fill out a Medicaid application, elder lawyers, through advice and guidance, can often accelerate the approval process saving the family a great deal of money. This often more than compensates for their fee.

    On the other hand many elder attorneys do not just limit their practice to Medicaid planning but help elders and their families with all types of issues.
