Man's death reveals need for carefully planned guardianship

When people cannot make medical or financial decisions for themselves, a guardianship may be the best way to ensure their protection. Though some people worry that establishing guardianship renders a person incapable of making his or her own decisions, that is not the case. Guardianships may be the best solution for an elderly person and his or her family here in Colorado, and they can hire a professional to fill the role if necessary. Whoever the appointed person is, it's important that he or she is fully qualified and keeps the needs of the subject of the guardianship front and center. One out-of-state family is dealing with this issue right now, as they allege that the professional guardian of their loved one may be responsible for his death.

Several people hoping court removes conservatorship in this case

Colorado, like most other states, is home to many Star Trek fans. Many people have a favorite character on the still-popular old TV show. Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura, ranks high on most lists, especially because she broke through racial barriers as the first black woman to hold a leading role in a prime time television series. Now age 86, however, the former actress is reportedly going through a stressful time in her personal life regarding conservatorship.

Would a third-party special needs trust benefit your child?

If you have a child who has special needs, you may be looking for a way to continue providing for your child after you are gone. Traditional estate planning tools, like wills and living trusts, offer different ways for you to leave money to your children. However, estate planning can be a little more complicated if you want to provide for a child with disability.

Estate planning wise after an Alzheimer's diagnosis

Having a loved one with Alzheimer's disease can be difficult. Though many people in Colorado and across the country receive this diagnosis, the progression of the disease and the way it affects each individual can differ. In any case, it is wise for families to consider their estate planning options after learning this news.

Setting up a special needs trust for your child

You have taken care of your special needs child since birth. You know how important it is to protect and support him or her. You've experienced firsthand the extra care needed. As you get older and begin the process of estate planning, you will likely want to set up a special needs trust for your child.
