Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
She can indeed do so. She should be considering estate planning if has not commenced that process. As much as possible, assets should not be in their names, and instead placed in irrevocable trusts for benefit of children. Obviously, the earlier this is done relative to applying to the home the better, but at this point need to start on that asap, preferably through an estates lawyer locally.
The nursing home will be asking about transfers like that and could try to challenge them, and get some of it to pay the bills. A transfer to a trust tends to be more effective. Tried to expedite your question. Kindly rate me 5 stars, and reply if I can clarify anything!
Thank you in advance.
Is the answer acceptable?
