Brentwood Special Needs Trust Attorney

Protecting Your Child's Needs & Preserving Benefits

One of the most common questions asked of an estate planning lawyer is what steps can be taken for a special needs child to protect them in the event of a tragedy. If you're wondering who will care for your child, where they will live, or how their affairs will be taken care of, we can help.

At Carter Law, PLLC, we recommend creating a guardianship for any minor child in addition to creating a special needs trust. We can help you understand the many components that go into this type of trust and which are right for your situation.

Does My Child Need a Trust?

A special needs trust is a unique type of trust that ensures your child or loved one will be supported financially well into the future – without having to give them funds directly. This type of trust can be used to help individuals who have short or long-term disabilities that require special care. Not only does this ensure that their government benefits won't be disrupted but it also means that someone else will be assigned to help manage their money. This person is often a family member but can also be an outside trustee hired to manage their assets.

Funds in a trust can be used to help pay for:

  • Education
  • Incidentals
  • Transportation
  • Therapy

Benefits of Establishing a Special Needs Trust

There are many benefits to creating a special needs trust for your child or loved one. One of these benefits is knowing that the services and goods they need will be paid through (with approval from the trustee). This means that your loved one will never have to worry about being able to afford their basic needs. Additionally, you can rest assured that your loved one will not fall victim to others' manipulation, theft, abuse, or waste.

It is important to consult with a knowledgeable special needs trust lawyer in Williamson County to discuss your unique needs and concerns. At Carter Law, PLLC, we are dedicated to using our knowledge of the law as well as federal and state guidelines to help your family.
