Louisiana Elder Law

While many people don’t typically think about succession planning in their younger stages of life, there is no better time to prepare for your future than now, regardless of your age. At the law office of Betsy A. Fischer, LLC, we can help you create a purposeful and effective succession plan that will allow you to provide for your family members, protect your property and convey your estate and medical wishes in the forthcoming years.

In addition to our comprehensive succession planning services, we provide caring and experienced elder law and probate assistance. We recognize that it is a difficult time for you, and our knowledgeable Metairie elder law attorney will help guide you through the legal process.

Providing Trusted And Caring Elder Law

Since establishing our Southeast Louisiana law firm in 2002, lawyer Betsy A. Fischer has helped individuals and families prepare for the future using helpful succession planning tools, as well as handle emotionally challenging elder law and probate matters.

Over the years, Betsy A. Fischer has provided competent legal advice and assistance with several areas of succession planning and elder law. We will work with you to help you understand what tools will most benefit you and your family, including:

  • Simple wills: A will without a trust. It governs what will happen to your estate by reflecting your intentions about your property, assets, etc. It also addresses who will be the executor of your estate at the time of your death.
  • Living wills: A will that provides your wishes for end-of-life services.
  • Testamentary trusts: A trust created in a will that goes into effect upon your death.
  • Powers of attorney: A legal designation that allows an individual to make financial, medical and other major decisions on your behalf in the event of your incapacitation.

In addition to helping you establish the above, our firm can assist you with probate of your loved one’s estate, as well as other elder law matters, including forced heirship and interdictions.

Assisting You With The Legal Process of Interdiction

The aging or incapacitation of a parent or loved one often poses challenges to the individual and his or her family. If your loved one is unable to make decisions involving his or her property, finances or personal and medical care, we can help guide you through the legal process of interdiction. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you.
