Q. How can my mother structure my brother's SNT to avoid funds becoming "marital assets" in the event of his divorce?
A: Your mother can create a Third Party Special Needs Trust (it can be embedded in her Living Trust or stand-alone). Mom can/should name anyone OTHER than your brother to serve as the trustee for this SNT with him as beneficiary. As an example: you could be trustee for your brother (in charge of managing his SNT trust funds).

I would not recommend using any of the SNT funds to give money directly to your brother. The SNT could, however, pay any of his bills. These trusts are structured as "sole benefit" trusts which should prevent it from ever being considered a marital asset.

This video further discusses Third Party Special Needs Trusts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhIB2 3zT4VM ... Read More
Q. My brother-in-law NEEDS an elder care lawyer. He is unable or unwilling to find one himself.
A: It sounds like he may need a guardianship/conservatorship. We only practice in Florida - you can find an excellent elder law attorney in his locale, on this forum, or by visiting: www.naela.org (click find-a-lawyer).

Good luck!
Q. Do co-successor trustees have full control over where proceeds from a home sale are deposited/distributed?
A: Hi there - No, a trustee's role and job is to follow the instructions within the trust. In most revocable trusts, the trust document itself will state who gets what after the grantor (creator of the trust) passes away.

In short: see what the trust says! You should check with an elder law or estate planning attorney to review with you.

I hope this helps!
