If you're among many New Jersey residents who celebrate one or more holidays from Thanksgiving through New Year's, you may also be among those who purchase gifts for friends and family or who spend money traveling, dining out, hosting parties or on other festivities. That's all well and good if you have the cash to foot the bill; however, in many cases, people use their credit cards, thinking they'll pay it off at the end of the month and then they don't.
For New Jersey families caring for loved ones with special needs, the future can be a complex and daunting prospect. Through certain estate planning tools, you can make sure your family has the right plans in place to provide for specific members of your family after your passing. One way to do this is by creating a special needs trust.
