Legal Answers
71 Questions Answered

Q. We want to sell my Mom's home in Florida, but don't know where to legally place the funds afterwards. Help please?!?!
A: There are a variety of legal and ethical ways to protect the proceeds of the home sale and qualify your mother for ICP-Medicaid (which pays for nursing home care). Depending on the net amount, the medicaid-complaint strategies would change.
Q. Can I sell my home in Florida without Medicaid taking proceeds?
A: With proper planning in advance of the sale, you can avoid Medicaid touching any of the proceeds. You have the option of selling with the intent on purchasing another home, which I talk about in this article: https://www.elderneedslaw.com/blog/can-i-sell-my-home-and-become-medicaid-eligible Or, in the situation, where you want to sell the house and rent (or move into an ALF if you need extra help) or even move into a friend/child/sibling's home - there are a variety of strategies to protect the proceeds. They all have pros and cons.... and usually a combination of strategies are needed, which is why a consultation is needed. I see you are in Seffner. I have an office in Brandon. Feel free to call to schedule a consultation.
Q. I am successor trustee in my fathers trust. Am I able to sign the title of his car over to a buyer in the state of FL?
A: I agree with the two other answers. As trustee, you have the ability to take action with regard to any asset that is properly titled in the name of the trust (subject to the trust's limitations, i.e. it may direct you, as trustee, to sell the car and distribute the proceeds to one or more beneficiaries. Or it may direct you to transfer title to one particular beneficiary). As my colleague stated, its worthwhile to have the trust reviewed by an attorney to ensure you are in compliance with the document. Good luck to you!
Q. Hi, what is the cost to file for guardianship for a parent with dementia? Thank you.
A: Assuming that it is not contested, my office charges $4,000.00 - $5,000. If you're interested in discussing further, please reach out.
Q. Can a POA be partially revoked, in this case for medical, so a new POA can do that part?
A: You would want to revoke the entire document and have your elder care attorney draft a new one that complies with your wishes. This will prevent confusion when 3rd parties are trying to figure out who is supposed to make which decisions for you. All the best, Jason
Q. I came to FL from Mass. FL is now my home. Is my Mass will valid in FL
A: Florida recognizes out-of-state Wills if legally executed in that other state. However, there are some practical reasons to redo your estate planning documents. Below is a link to a video I made, called: Do I need new estate planning documents if I'm moving to Florida | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyBzYHBn9yg All the best, Jason
Q. Ward is confined to memory care at ALF. Son is guardian, can wards house hold bills be paid through the guardianship?
A: There are a lot of potential reasons why the paralegal is suggesting what he/she is suggesting. Make an appointment to speak with the guardianship attorney to understand the gameplan.
Q. Mom is 87 yrs old and is behind on a 112,000 mortgage, can she walk away ?
A: Mom can let lender know that she does not have the means to pay and attempt whats called a "deed-in-lieu of foreclosure" this can help prevent the bank from attempting to collect against any remaining balance owed (if any) after the property is sold. Good luck to you!
Q. Can a spend down plan for post medicaid eligibility include a purchase of a sole automobile with extended warranty?
A: There would be no restriction on purchasing an automobile with an extended warranty, provided that it is your mother's only automobile, that it will be used primarily to transport her places or for her benefit (i.e. don't buy your mother a car and then you drive it to work everyday). If she is bedbound and never leaves the nursing home it probably wouldn't be reasonable for you to purchase a car on her behalf, she would be better served utilizing another Medicaid planning strategy. Hope this helps.
