Child Caregiver Exception

Caring for an Aging Parent

Normally to qualify for this transfer exemption, the child would need to move in with a parent to provide care.  We've successfully accomplished a penalty-free property transfer when an ailing parent moved in with the child caregiver.

Residence Exclusion

Saving the Home

If your parent moves into an assisted living facility, normally their former home will become a countable asset for Medicaid.  We've successfully established that when the move is for medical reasons, the home should be excluded.

Rental Property Preserved

Formalizing Family Agreements

Did you purchase a rental property or a vacation home? We've repeatedly established these properties as formal income producing assets which protect their excluded status and generate additional income for spouses at home.

Her expertise was/is so impressive...On our first meeting Shannon Hammond spent over 2 hours asking questions and with the information created an excel spreadsheet - the information was unique to my parents' situation... I highly recommend using Shannon Hammond for any elder care services but especially if applying for Medicaid."

 "When I came to Ms. Hammond I was at the end of my rope. I was facing putting my Mom in a nursing home. I didn't know where to turn, what to do, I was up against a wall. When we met she answered all my questions, had a check sheet of what needed to be done and what to expect in the months ahead. The price was reasonable & her advice was right on time. My Mom and I could never repay her for what she has done for us. I only wish I had gone to her first. I tell her all the time and I mean it, I could never, ever repay her. I only wish there were more stars to give her. Thanks Ms. Hammond !!"

"Our first visit with Ms. Hammond made us completely comfortable and had no hesitation in hiring her. She and her staff handled everything quickly and even though we had to provide lots of information, they assisted us with every thing we needed. I still have a matter I want her to take care of and I'm sure she will again help get the matter taken care of. I will continue using her with any matter relating to the issue of my husband's care. Again Shannon and her staff are excellent and most of all very caring."

"Shannon came very highly recommended to us by a mutual acquaintance, for a small, yet quite complicated, Family Estate filing and closing...She not only helped us to uncover some errors from our previous Family Estate Attorney, but she also fixed them, and helped us throughout the entire process to insure that our loved one's Estate was completed properly, and with no errors or surprises...She explains everything so you can understand it, and she is very attentive to details, and listens to what the client has to say before suggesting her solution(s) or course of action...We highly recommend Shannon, and the entire staff of Hammond Law, LLC. We honestly could not be happier with the service, counsel, and efforts of her, her firm, and her staff. Thank you so much, Shannon!"
