Hello and welcome to Just Answer. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site, the answers are for general information. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

If there is an open case of fraud with North Carolina DHHS- The Division of Aging and Adult Services and the elderly person dies prior to the completion of the investigation, the DHHS can pass the case to the district attorney if they believe that they have enough grounds for a charge of fraud.

However, I most cases, the DHHS will not pursue a case if the person dies and they have not charged already. The case then may become a civil matter to be pursued by the estate of the deceased.

I hope this helps.

It was a pleasure assisting you today, and I would appreciate if you would rate my service, so I will receive credit and payment for my work. We as attorneys are not employees of Just Answer and are not paid unless you rate the question. After you rate the question you can ask follow up questions, and you will not be charged any additional money for the follow-up questions.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
