Legal Answers
Q. If a parent’s home is to be given to the child in the will but the parent has became ill and requires assisted living
A: There's a lot of different things that can be effected if the house is transferred to the child when the parent enters a nursing home. For example, if the parent is going to need to qualify for Medicaid to pay for their nursing home stay, transferring the home may penalize them on the Medicaid application. It would be best to meet with an elder law attorney to address the specifics of your situation and discuss your options.
Q. Can you get a ladybird deed in oklahoma?
A: They’re not called ladybird deeds here, but we do have something similar. It would be wise to talk to an elder law attorney in your area to go over the rules for owning property and Medicaid in your state if you think you may need help paying for nursing home care eventually. There are a lot of rules about limits to how many assets you can own if you need Medicaid to pay for your nursing home care.
Q. My dad left me 6 acres in his will but I cannot seem to find out the process to transfer it to my name.
A: Let me start be saying that I'm sorry for the loss of your father. Unfortunately, the only way to gain ownership to the property is to go through the probate process. If the land is less than $200,000 you will qualify to use a shortened probate process. A probate attorney can help you through the process.
