Gary H. September 29, 2022
Elder Estate Work I engaged Elder Needs Law and found them immediately and conscientiously ready to run with the work needing to be done. Every staff member was polite, professional and easily reachable. And if not immediately available it wasn't long before I got a phone call back. I couldn't be more please to offer this note of my complete satisfaction.

Jason Saved My Sanity Last summer my elderly mother's long term care insurance reached its limit, forcing us to find a way to continue to provide her with the home care she absolutely needs each day. Making it more challenging, my brothers and I all live in different states a distance away from our mother - and everyone was in lockdown due to the COVID pandemic. One of my brothers had previous experience dealing with Medicaid in New York, so we knew it would be a complicated journey. We turned to Jason Neufeld and Elder Needs Law for assistance. Immediately from our initial consultation we felt confident they could help us navigate through the Florida laws and Medicaid application. Jason and his team drafted estate documents to help close any gaps, establish health directives and power of attorney, and then assisted us through the Medicaid application process. Jason was always responsive and easy to work with. It's not a simple process, and having Jason and his team guide us made a big difference.

Legal Answers
85 Questions Answered
Q. My wife and I are both disabled I am on sddi she is on ssi we are considering divorce so she can draw a higher amount
A: Your SSDI will not be impacted because it is based on your work history (regardless of income/assets). However your wife's SSI could negatively be impacted by being married because part of your income may be being "deemed" to her and therefore can result in her receiving a lower monthly SSI benefit. This is sometimes referred to as the "marriage penalty" and is unfortunate. In 2022, the maximum SSI monthly benefit is: $841/mo. In 2023 that will increase to $914/mo. If your wife has no other income sources and is making less than the maximum benefit, speak with an experienced SSA-focused attorney to discuss next steps and whether getting a divorce would be helpful. If you do get a divorce, remember that proper estate planning is important. For example, if you have a power of attorney, in Florida that POA becomes null upon divorce (unless the POA specifies otherwise).
Q. if im married can I change my will so when I die my husband doesn't get our marriage assets in state of Florida
A: Florida Statutes are very clear: the surviving spouse is entitled to 30% of the value of the deceased's spouse's estate (this is referred to as the "elective share", and I put a link to the statute at the bottom of this answer). The right to an elective share can be waived, but the spouse will need to sign a waiver knowingly and you'd be well-advised to have separate attorneys on this matter. You can, however, certainly speak with your own estate planning attorney and arrange your assets in a way (usually via revocable trust) so that your spouse only gets 30% should you pass first. Elective Share Statute: http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0700-0799/0732/Sections/0732.201.html
Q. Can my mother execute a quitclaim deed to remove my father from the deed without a divorce?
A: If this is their homestead, a spouse cannot be removed from the deed (the property can't even be sold) without the consent of both spouses. The other attorney who responded is correct, you likely will need to consult with a guardianship attorney to assist your father. One bit of good news: dad's creditors will not be able to go after the homestead (unless its a debt related to, or secured by, the property such as a mortgage or mechanic's lien).
