Helping Special Needs Children Obtain the Resources They Need to Enjoy a Peaceful & Fulfilling Life

Rhode Island Special Needs Planning Lawyer

Planning for a Joyful & Meaningful Life

Every child with special needs has an absolute right to a life that is as meaningful and happy as possible. The goal of special needs estate planning is to ensure that special needs children are provided for and to help ensure that they get a chance to live the life you want for them. Because every child's special need is special, we believe every family deserves a unique plan to look after them when their parents are no longer able.

As your Rhode Island estate planning attorney, we help you devise a working plan for your children by covering all the bases, including:

  • Financial planning: Long-term care for adult children who cannot work (or who have a limited ability to earn an independent living) takes money, and planning ahead can help you get the most out of what's available. We help you with securing:
    • Government benefits your child is eligible for
    • Assets you choose to leave behind
    • Investments to prolong the life of your estate
    • Protection of your funds from creditors and others who would take them
  • Legal planning: If your special needs child is unable to make informed decisions, somebody you trust has to step up and act as a decision maker. It is usually a mistake to leave this aspect of continuing care to an informal understanding among other family members, as situations change over a lifetime and not having a written plan can introduce uncertainty.
  • Care planning: Many special needs children have unique medical and care requirements, and not all of them are known to outsiders. Continuing coverage by Medicare or Medicaid can also be uncertain, in the event you pass away without a plan. We help you devise a smooth transition that minimizes disruptions to your child's routine and ensures as much continuity of care, and the high quality of life that goes with it, as possible.

As a Rhode Island probate lawyer with over a decade of experience, Attorney Kara Hoopis Manosh knows every special needs family is unique. Get in touch today for a consultation to find out how we can help you preserve your child's quality of life after you've passed away.
