Divorce And Disability

DIVORCE AND DISABILITY — OBTAINING A FAIR AND PRACTICAL OUTCOME

When a spouse or child is disabled, a divorce attorney must take special measures to protect the disabled person’s interests during the divorce process. The divorce settlement and its provisions for property division, spousal support or child support, may cause the disabled spouse or child to lose SSI or Medicaid benefits.

Simple provisions in a divorce settlement can provide for the special needs of a disabled person, without increasing the burden on the other party. For example, a property settlement can include a special needs trust that can preserve the ability of the disabled person to obtain Medicaid benefits. However, the attorney representing a client in this situation must be careful. The rules for Medicaid reimbursement are different for disabled adults and disabled children.

The Pollan Law Firm focuses on developing creative solutions to questions involving divorce and disability. As experienced Medicaid and special needs attorneys, we understand the complex rules regarding Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement. We also know how to structure divorce settlements that are fair, workable and preserve the ability to obtain benefits.
