Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. can I file a small estate affidavit on line
A: If the County you are filing in has e-filing, you should be able to.
Q. If my grandma signed an arbitration agreement with her nursing home but didn't understand it due to dementia, could that
A: It depends on the details. If the date of the agreement was on or after 11/28/16 and the nursing home participates in Medicaid then CMS prevents them from using arbitration agreements. If the details don't fit into that window, then it would depend on the facts surrounding execution of the agreement.
Q. mother passed away and had a will leaving home to me and my wife,but we aren't on the deed, what happens
A: The Court will formally appoint an Executor when you open the probate case. The Executor will sign a distribution deed per the terms of the Will.
