Trust & Estates attorney Sarah Aviles will be presenting at The Arc of Northern Virginia's First Friday Future Planning webinar on October 7.

From the Arc's website:

"An estate plan is a critical part of future planning for loved ones with disabilities. It ensures that your values, wishes and legacy will be preserved and passed on when you’re gone. An estate plan also limits litigation, taxes and expenses for your family and heirs.

In particular, parents of children with disabilities must exercise extra care in setting their estate plans. Remember, you are planning for your future as well as your child’s. The right planning will protect your (adult) child’s inheritance while retaining their eligibility for public benefits.

As we always say “It’s all in the planning.” Legal authority refers to who may act on your behalf when you ask them to, or if you are unable to do so, depending on the circumstances. There’s a spectrum of options. These need to be part of your planning as well.

This First Fridays Futures Planning webinar will guide you to strategize, plan and execute an approach to secure your financial future and that of your child. The goal is to bring you peace of mind. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that you have a plan in place to manage the financial security of your future as well as your child’s?"
