How your attorney can help navigate family conflicts that arise


When it comes to dealing with legal arrangements, family conflicts can occur. Your attorney can be a source of help when it comes to navigating family dynamics.

Communication is important when navigating family dynamics. It is imperative that everyone is on the same page, and understands why decisions are being made.

When family conflicts occur in elder law, it is often due to an unequal burden of care. This happens when one family member becomes the primary caregiver for the elder, and that often leads to resentment towards others; sparking a source of conflict.

Other sources of conflict can arise over finances, whether one feels there is an unequal distribution of inheritance or power over the elder’s estate. Conflicts can also occur when family members disagree on a plan or treatment of care.

Attorneys can help your family better navigate conflicts, and allow each family member to understand the legality of everything.

Family meetings are one way to get everyone on the same page. Your attorney can almost act as a family counselor; these meeting will allow the family to discuss the wishes of the elder and the expectations that have been set. It will also allow time for any questions to be answered that one may have, and overall get everyone on the same page as far as understanding and agreeing on the course of action.

If a family is still struggling to find the balance and agreement, your attorney may suggest mediation. This will allow the family to discuss issues with a professional in an atmosphere that one’s attorney cannot provide for them.

Your attorney can help in all aspects of the legal situation, and in elder law when the family is all in agreement; it leads to a much smoother legal process.
