If you have a family member or friend who is struggling to manage their own affairs due to a health issue or disability, you may be able to help by seeking an adult guardianship. Guardianship of an adult can be granted in South Carolina if the adult is found to be disabled and in need of assistance. The process of obtaining guardianship can be complex, but we can help. We will work with you in determining the type of guardianship that is needed and filing your request in court. We can also assist you in carrying out your duties as guardian for your loved one.

Elder law attorneys advocate for the senior community and their loved ones. They handle a wide range of legal matters affecting older or disabled persons that includes traditional estate planning, lifetime planning, long term care planning, guardianship, Social Security, Medicaid, Veteran's benefits, special needs and other important matters.
Elder law attorneys are "specialists" because of their focus on the needs of older adults, which are often different and more specialized than the needs of younger adults. Not only can they handle important financial and estate planning matters, they also give advice affecting the actual care of seniors, such as assisted living and nursing homes.

Medicaid is a complex series of benefits programs established by the federal government and administered by each state for its citizens. While there are several different elements under the umbrella of Medicaid, the Medicaid Long-Term Care program is one that many seniors rely on for help when they require ongoing care. At the Elder Law & Estate Planning Center, we help aging individuals plan, apply, and qualify for Medicaid benefits while protecting and preserving assets for their descendants.
Why hire an estate planning attorney?
MCT Asset Protection Trusts
A MCT trust also known as a Medicaid compliant trust, holds and protects assets. It offers flexibility and control of the Revocable Living Trust while still being able to protect your assets from nursing homes. The trust creator decides what assets go into the trust, where money is invested and also names the beneficiaries.
