Guardianship and ConservatorshipGuardianship and Conservatorship

To succeed in becoming someone's guardianship and conservatorship, you need a specialist by your side. Time and time again I have seen clients try to do it themselves, only to have their petitions denied by the court. Now they are back at square one and have lost a lot of time and money. 

Let us do it correctly for you, the first time.

501 (c)(3) Application Grant

 

Once a year Attorney Michael Monteforte chooses a charity or non-profit organization to grant the tedious 501 (c)(3) application free of charge! All they have to pay for is the court and IRS filing fees. A 501 (c)(3) is the IRS's recognition of a non-profit as a legal charity.

How Much Does a Will Cost?How Much Does a Will Cost?

Many people call and ask us how to get started with their planning. 

Sometimes, the best advice I can give, is to tell someone what they should NOT do, as opposed to just telling them what they should do.

Wills, Trusts & Estate PlanningWills, Trusts & Estate Planning

In Massachusetts, everyone needs to have a Will. It’s just that simple. Without a will, you are leaving a mess for your family, including months to even years of waiting for distributions, additional probate costs, susceptibility to creditors’ claims, estate taxes, and more. A proper estate plan is a must, especially for people with families and young children.

Do you need to consider tools other than a Last Will and Testament to protect your assets? Attorney Michael Monteforte, will discuss all of your options with you and guide you in selecting the estate planning tools that will best help you meet your goals. Get the peace of mind you deserve and protect your hard-earned assets for the next generation with an estate plan from Monteforte Law, P.C.

Elder LawElder Law

Elder law is a very challenging and specialized field. The rules are constantly changing, making the laws even more difficult to navigate. Legal advice and legal documents have to change with the times and creating effective estate plans and Medicaid plans hinge on one’s ability to think critically, be imaginative, and problem-solve.

There are many times when I see clients getting ready to enter a family member into nursing home care, and I tell them they should have come to see me five years ago! Let us help you plan for the future before it’s too late. We will take a look at a variety of options for you, including estate planning, protection of assets, irrevocable living trusts, and Medicaid planning and applications. Contact Monteforte Law, P.C. today.

Medicaid MassHealth Applications for Long Term CareMedicaid MassHealth Applications for Long Term Care

Medicaid MassHealth Applications: Don't try to go it alone. An application for Long-Term Care benefits through MassHealth is technical, cumbersome, and time-consuming. Do NOT try to tackle it yourself, or the result can be disastrous. We can help.

Retirement Planning, Asset Protection and Life Insurance PlanningRetirement Planning, Asset Protection and Life Insurance Planning

Not sure if you're subject to estate taxes? Will your life insurance leave your loved ones with a huge estate tax bill? Will your life insurance provide coverage for long term care? Can you protect your home and other assets from nursing home costs? Can you make sure your spouse and children get your retirement accounts if you pass away? We will answer these questions for you and more.

Estates & ProbateEstates & Probate

You may have thought that because your loved one had a will, his assets will pass smoothly on to his heirs upon his death. However, this is usually not the case in Massachusetts. Many types of assets will likely have to go through a difficult court process called probate. As an experienced probate attorney, Michael Monteforte, Jr., can guide you through the process, freeing you up to cope with your loss and attend to your family.

Unless your loved one had an irrevocable living trust, at least some of his estate will probably have to go through probate before it is distributed to heirs. If there is a Will and someone contests it, the process can be even longer and more burdensome. If you are an executor of an estate or the closest heir, you should seriously consider hiring Monteforte Law, P.C., to help you through this difficult time. Call us to get your questions answered.
