Good afternoon. Could you elaborate a bit more about the situation? Is the transfer being made to avoid creditors? Is there some reason someone would want to set this transfer aside? Thanks.

Thanks for responding. I don't have access to your prior inquires. Therefore, I am going to opt out to open your question up to all experts so another expert can hopefully timely provide you the information you seek. Please do not respond to this post as it will only slow the process of such an expert picking up your question. Take care.

Ray here a new expert.There is a 5 year look back here for gifts, they would disqualify you for a period of time up to 5 years,This is not a good idea if you are wanting Medicaid because they would look here.You can spend it down on yourself but no gifts here they will deny you.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

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.
