Elder Law

 

Elder Law covers the issues of aging, including long-term care, senior housing and home care, health care documents, guardianships, Medicaid planning, and Medicare planning.

  • Medicaid Planning

Our elder care lawyers help families explore Medicaid eligibility as part of long-term care planning. We help you make important decisions that could impact your assets and, more importantly, your quality of life.

  • Guardianship

Our elder law attorneys guide families in making decisions about guardianship proceedings to help you plan for the well-being of your loved ones.

Without specific instructions, fairly distributing your existing assets to your surviving loved ones can become a nightmare. Often, people demand what they think they are owed, and not what you would have wanted for them or for your estate.

To leave a lasting legacy that’s based on fairness and what you want, you should consult with skilled attorneys who have the right experience in probate, estate planning, wills, & trusts. To devise an endowment that you believe to be just, consult Attorney Jay C. Bianco!

Probate Process
In the event of your passing, there is a legal administration of your estate, and a resolution of all claims standing against said estate. This process is called probate. A testator’s will is determined by a surrogate court, executors are chosen, and those who have a claim (heirs and others) receive property or monetary windfalls based on the wishes of the deceased. This process is legally binding to all parties involved.

There are instances where money or property does not enter into probate on account of a pre-existing contract that is based on circumstances such as “payable on death,” “jointly owned with right of survivorship,” or living trust. In these instances, there are still court officers and official proceedings that must take place. For all of these instances, Attorney Jay C. Bianco can be there for you.

Personalized Representation
Attorney Jay C. Bianco will oversee everything to ensure all parties are following proper procedure and the letter of the law. Should you want to challenge the probate, either through a petition or a personal representative, we have the legal background you need to see it through to the end. We will provide guidance and intelligent legal maneuvering to get you what is rightfully yours.
