When someone is unable to care for themselves and/or their financial affairs and has been declared incapacitated by the court, a guardian or conservator may be appointed to look out for their interests. While a guardianship or conservatorship can protect individuals from potential exploitation and other types of harm, they aren't appropriate in every case—and the legal process for obtaining one can be costly, time-consuming, and emotionally challenging.
At Cucinelli Geiger, PC, our highly skilled team of Virginia attorneys helps families obtain the guardianship or conservatorship needed to keep their loved ones safe. Contact us to schedule an appointment for an initial consultation.
Caring for a loved one with special needs is a big responsibility and, if your family member needs lifelong care, you can find yourself worrying about how to adequately provide for them in your absence. A comprehensive estate plan can help ensure that your disabled family member continues to live a dignified, comfortable, and meaningful life. However, a traditional estate plan can jeopardize your loved one's eligibility for vital government assistance programs.
At Cucinelli Geiger, PC, our dedicated Virginia attorneys can help you explore special needs planning options and craft a custom plan to meet your goals. Schedule a consultation to discuss ways to provide for your family member while preserving their entitlement to public benefits.
Most people will require some form of long-term care in their twilight years. However, with the cost of care averaging up to $12,000 per month, figuring out how you'll pay for the care that you or a loved one needs can be challenging. Medicaid can help cover the cost of long-term nursing care, but strict income requirements mean you'll likely need to plan in advance in order to qualify. Thankfully, you've come to the right place for help. Schedule a consultation to find out how our exceptional Virginia Medicaid planning attorneys can assist you.
Regardless of your age or financial situation, you need an estate plan. The essential documents that make up an estate plan tell your family what should happen when you die or if you become incapacitated.
When we work with clients to create a custom estate plan, we help them choose representatives to care for them if they become incapacitated and walk them through the process of providing instructions for end-of-life care, final wishes, and the distribution of their assets to beneficiaries. Our attorneys will help you successfully navigate the estate planning process to protect your family's future.
