Legal Answers
47 Questions Answered
Q. Do I need a lawyer if im the closest living relative and my dads house is morgaged out and the car is a lease.
A: Going through probate just for tools and household goods is rarely done in practice. If he has creditors, then talk to an attorney because they could be upset at you for selling the items and not giving them the money. If not, then I can't think of anybody else who could file a good claim against you (i.e. sue you).
Q. My brother died without a proper will and his assets are very small. Can we settle his small estate without a lawyer?
A: If the two children don't like one another, then you should get an administrator appointed to sell the house and split the proceeds. Are you (the administrator) required to have an attorney? No. Should you? Unless you are a probate attorney in Ohio, then yes. The beneficiaries could sue you if you make one mistake. Since they already dislike each other, then this case has a heightened possibility of litigation at the outset. Further, the estate will probably pay the attorney fees.
Q. How can I keep my deceased Mother's house from being taken by Medicaid Estate Recovery in Ohio?
A: This is a very good question. If you are disabled, then you may be able to stay in the house. If not, then another option is to negotiate with Medicaid and they may take a lower amount in exchange for not having to foreclose. Either way, you should probably get an experienced attorney involved who knows how cases like this usually work out. So you know, this would have happened whether she had a will or not.
