Arizona special needs law 101

By April 28, 2011Uncategorized

If you have a child with special needs, and you live in Arizona, special needs law is most definitely something you should be interested in.  You will surely want to know about all of the public programs that might be available to help your child, as well as the eligibility requirements for these programs.  Likewise, you will want to look into all of the special educational opportunities that might help your child, and where he or she will have to go to take advantage of such opportunities.  In short, there are a lot of unique considerations that you must make as a parent of a child with special needs.

What you may not realize is that by placing restrictions on public benefit programs for children with special needs, Arizona special needs law also restricts what you can do for your child with special needs.  If you were to leave your child an inheritance, for instance, the gift could render him or her ineligible for public benefits under Arizona special needs law.  Then, when the inheritance was gone, your child would once again have to go through the cumbersome application process, but this time without your assistance.

Arizona special needs law can be complicated, but it is not in place to create a disadvantage for special needs children and their families.  With proper planning and foresight, you can navigate Arizona special needs law and accomplish precisely what you feel is necessary for your child with special needs.  Of course, to meet your goals, it is best to work with an attorney who is familiar with Arizona special needs law.  To consult with an Arizona special needs lawyer, do not hesitate to contact JacksonWhite.
