Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs. Thank you for your patience as I review the question. I will post my response shortly.
Sorry to hear of your problem.
Are the assets held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship?
Are you asking if they are vulnerable to creditor claims if she dies?
Yes to both questions?
Are you still online with me?
If your girlfriend does not survive then the property you both owned in joint tenancy with right of survivorship will pass to you automatically, outside of probate, and is not subject to creditor claims from the hospital or any other creditor your girlfriend may have.
