Topic: Graying Divorce and Medicaid Considerations Within the Collaborative Model
Attorney Robert (Bob) Jutras’ major practice areas of Family and Elder Law provide an interesting perspective on Graying Divorce and Medicaid Considerations. A comprehensive understanding of family law, trust planning and the Medicaid rules and regulations are essential when evaluating the options for a later in life client faced with the prospects of divorce or long-term care expenses. Collaborative Practice offers an opportunity to critically assess the family law, trust and Medicaid planning options for older clients and their families. Bob offers his expertise as an estate and trust planning, and Medicaid consultant. The emotionally charged dynamics of a possible later in life divorce and failing health or declining competency require an in-depth analysis while protecting the fragile emotions of our older clients, which is not available in a litigation model. As baby boomers continue to age and second and third divorces are more common, the need for the Collaborative model and analysis will become increasingly frequent in all our practices.
