Guide: 5 FAQs About Wills, Trusts, and Medicaid

If you're curious about estate planning, asset protection, or long-term care and Medicaid, this guide is a great starting point. I wrote it to answer the most common questions about estate planning and elder law:

  1. Why should I get an estate plan? How much will it cost?
  2. What is "probate," and should I avoid it?
  3. Do I need a trust?
  4. What is "asset protection"? Can I protect my property from the nursing home?
  5. When does Medicaid pay for long-term care?

You'll also get my newsletter, The Forward Draft, containing regular updates on the law and my quest to make estate planning and Medicaid short, simple, human, and correct.

Whether you're a young couple just needing the basics, a retiree finally getting your affairs in order, or a daughter worried about your parent's need for long-term care and Medicaid, this is how to get started.
