Estate planning with medically fragile children in mind


Families in the Kent area who have medically fragile children know how difficult day-to-day life can be. A medically fragile child requires a lot of care, money and time. Families need to plan ahead for their vulnerable child and prepare for the potential time when their child outlives them.

How is a guardian in Washington selected?


In Washington, guardianships are a legal means of assuring the protection and well-being of a person who cannot make decisions because of their functional limitations. Laws govern this position of trust, which can be exercised by one or more individuals.

Young families should find estate plans important


Having a baby is one of the best events a family can experience together. Kent area residents extensively plan for the upcoming new arrival through baby showers, nursery planning and attending birthing classes. But one important preparation is often missed by new parents and that is creating an estate plan for a vulnerable child.

How to select a guardian for your children


No parent ever wants to think about what would happen to their children if he or she died unexpectedly. Usually, most children in the Kent area outlive their parents, but occasionally a tragedy strikes that requires the children to go to a guardian. Setting up guardianships for children is a very important estate planning activity that all parents should complete.

What is a guardianship for the disabled?


When a family in King County, Washington, has a loved one that suffers from a severe mental or physical disability, there are many different legal issues that need to be arranged.

Does an ABLE Act account make sense for your child's future?


Kent area parents who have a child with disabilities know how important it is to plan for their child's future.

There are several different ways parents can plan ahead, including a relatively new option that has become available.

Basic power of attorney information


Most Kent area residents are not thrilled at discussing what would happen to them or their estate if they become incapacitated. It makes sense, because who really ever wants to think about the end of their life or a time when they are not able to make decisions? But, that time will come for each of us and careful planning will ensure a person's needs and wishes are met including health care decisions.

Special needs trust information


For Kent residents who have children with special needs, their future is often at the top of their minds. Parents of special needs children know how much care their vulnerable child needs now and how much they will continue to need for the rest of their life. Establishing a special needs trust may be a good way to ensure their future is protected even if their parents are no longer alive.
