What is a Legal Document Preparer
Legal Document Preparers and Companies are licensed by the State of Arizona to provide legal document services to clients. We can help with preparation of legal documents, such as Power of Attorney, Deeds, Wills, and court filings. While we cannot provide legal advice the same way an attorney would, we can provide legal information to aid the process and help you determine the best options. We can write up many documents at a far lower cost than an attorney. After talking with one of our agents, many people are pleasantly surprised to learn that their unique situation does not necessarily require the services of a lawyer. If we cannot assist, we will let you know right away and refer you to someone who can.
Senior Planning offers a complete selection of legal documents related to long term care and estate planning. This includes advanced directives, Arizona Power of Attorney documents, and Arizona Wills. If you are looking to apply to ALTCS, we can create an income only trust, also known as a Miller trust for your or your loved one. A Miller trust is used for ALTCS applicants who are above the monthly income allowance, but still want to become eligible for benefits. Call today and we can get started on your income only trust to get your ALTCS application moving. We can also provide advanced directives such as a Living Will.
Arizona Legal Document Preparer vs. Lawyer
“Do I need a lawyer for this?” is a common question we hear. Each situation is unique and depending on what you need, the answer could be yes, or no. A lawyer can offer legal advice, which is something that legal document preparers cannot do. For complex legal issues, even though lawyers are very expensive, they can be a good option. However, many people simply need documents like trusts, POAs, or wills to have on hand for the future and do not want to pay attorney fees. This is where we can help. If you need any legal document prepared, and you would prefer a more cost effective option, give us a call.
Senior Planning offers a host of other long term care planning services. While we can prepare legal documents for a person of any age, if you or a loved one has daily care needs and is starting to need more help, our agency can assist you. If you or your loved one is looking for assisted living or any other form of care, we offer a completely free placement service. We will help you find a care situation that works with your budget, care needs, and location all at no cost to your or your family. If we can’t find anywhere in your budget, we can assist with applying for state benefits to cover the cost of care. No matter what type of eldercare, estate planning, or legal document questions you have, we can help.

Dealing with Complex Situations
Although many situations seem complicated, you’d be surprised as how many people are going through the same ordeal. For Senior Planning, most situations are relatively easy to address.
