FOR FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS:
If you are a family law attorney and you have a situation involving a person with special needs, please contact Clower Law to see if she could help your client. In the case of divorce, one of the spouses may have recently become disabled or has been disabled for some period of time. Receiving spousal support may change that person’s eligibility for also receiving public benefits. It is possible to have the spouse create a special needs trust so that the person can receive both public benefits and spousal support. It is also possible that, in the case of divorce, the spouses share a child with special needs and want to agree on how to protect that child. Special needs trusts have proved useful in this situation, as well. Clower Law offers a free 30 minute telephone consultation to family law attorneys to determine what needs that your client has and if Clower Law can assist.
