The Broad Field Of Elder Law

Estate planning is important at all stages of life. As you get older, however, you might need someone to help you with tough decision-making.

At Postic & Bates, our lawyers assist Oklahoma seniors with all aspects of elder law, which is much more than simply estate planning. Our attorneys can help you with issues related to:

  • Guardianships
  • Long-term care planning
  • Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • Prescription drug benefits

Documents such as durable powers of attorney for health care and financial decisions become more important as you enter retirement. If you don't have a living will, you should create one to tell family members and health care providers whether you want artificial life support. While you may have stated your wishes to family members, they would not have the authority to tell doctors what to do unless they have it in writing.

If you are concerned about needing more assistance or moving into a nursing home, you may want to have a conversation about ways you can protect your estate.

Keeping a last will and testament and/or a trust updated is also crucial. While you may have created a trust so that your children and beneficiaries will not have the expense and delay of a probate proceeding, that trust won't be effective unless you have placed your assets in it.

You should review your will or trust to be sure it is up to date whenever you buy or sell real estate or family members marry or divorce.
