What is Elder Law?

There are many issues that affect the aging population. Healthcare, personal finance, and guardianship are just some of the areas that can be addressed by having the right legal resources to support the goals of you and your family.

Angel investors and estate planning

Georgia investors who are creating an estate plan might look at how they can use trusts and other vehicles to help preserve wealth and teach their family about financial matters. Angel investors might have particular needs when it comes to creating estate plans. For example, since they often do not receive regular statements, they might want to keep careful records so their family can track those investments.

6 Self-Care Tips For Caregivers

Being a caregiver for an elderly family member or loved one is difficult job - especially if you also have young children at home. If you are a caregiver, you likely spend hours each day making sure your loved one is safe and comfortable. You may forego social outings with friends to tend to your loved one's needs. Any time for yourself is probably a rare luxury.

Living trusts, houses and estate planning

Georgia residents who are making estate plans might want to consider creating a living trust that they place their home into. If they have homes in other states, they might want to put those into the trust as well. This will prevent the homes from being tied up in probate in multiple states. The probate process can be lengthy and expensive in some cases while a trust allows funds to pass directly to a beneficiary.
