Special Needs Planning

Houston Attorney Handling Special Needs Planning

Planning for the future of a child or individual with special needs requires the attention of a lawyer who is familiar with how to protect the unique interests of special needs individuals. At the Law Office of Jeffrey S. Wyman, I have years of experience handling the establishment of special needs plans for families throughout Houston, Texas, and surrounding areas. I strive to help clients understand their options when seeking special needs planning.

My firm focuses on many different types of estate planning for clients, including special needs planning. I realize that many different parties could be involved in special needs planning, including parents, relatives, caretakers, employers, financial planners and educators, depending on the age of the individuals in question. These people all need to be informed about how the child or individual is to be cared for in the event that the primary caretakers cannot perform to the needs of the individual.

A plan can be structured to detail the medical and physical care required, along with any financial aspects that must be tended to. Planning for your estate can also help ensure that funds will go to the care of the special needs individual instead of to other places. With a plan in place, you do not have to worry about aspects such as:

  • A portion of your estate going to the government instead of to your child.
  • Many basic needs and activities that we may take for granted that are not sustained by government benefits.
  • Due to changes in government, benefits are subject to change at any time without warning. This may place a special needs child at risk of losing their benefits.

It is for the above reasons and more that taking the time to construct a detailed special needs care plan for your child or loved one is very important. Through special needs planning, you can provide funds, protect the right to government benefits and ensure that proper care will be given in the future.

  • I also provide clients with representation in the areas of elder law and Medicaid eligibility. These types of cases may be connected to special needs planning or handled on their own.

You do not have to face the daunting prospect of special needs planning alone. To discuss your situation and options for establishing an asset protection plan with an experienced Houston Metro area lawyer, contact my office to schedule a confidential consultation. My office is located near the intersection of Shepherd and West Gray Street. I accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

At the Law Office of Jeffrey S. Wyman, I represent individuals throughout the Houston metropolitan area, including Bellaire and Sugar Land; and in Fort Bend County, Harris County, Montgomery County and Brazoria County in Texas.
