Needed fire elderly parents
I would caution against using online or canned documents. Since you do not appear to be an attorney, you may not recognize the important issues with which you are faced. Commercially available documents don't help you identify what you don't know. As a result of going the cheap route, people often find out when it is too late to do anything about it just how expensive a poorly thought out document can be.See question
Medicaid Star Plus,, permanent disability, own home,
A meaningful answer to your would require more information. Much depends upon how the transaction is handled. While I wouldn't expect the State to have filed a lien on your house (obviously you aren't dead yet) other consequences come into play. Selling your home would convert the value of the house in the form of the proceeds of the sale from an exempt resource to cash which is a countable resource on the first day of the month following the sale. That would disqualify you from SSI/Medicaid until you reconvert the cash into an exempt resource by purchasing a new residence. During the interim you would roll-off benefits. Careful planning and timing can minimize, reduce or eliminate that roll-off period, but you will need the help of an experienced elder law attorney.See question
I live in Wyoming and wanted to know if Wyoming recognizes a noterized document as a legal document for temporary guardianship? Also what if the person who would have temporary guardianship lives on another state such as Missouri, does Missouri r...
As Jacob indicates, a guardianship, whether limited, temporary, or permanent, can only be established by the District Court. A notarized document doesn't get you where you need to be. You need to hire an attorney to do what you are trying to accomplish.See question

The only way you will get a meaningful answer to your question is to make an appointment with an elder or medical law attorney. There are just too many variables to address in this type of forum. Use the AVVO Find a Lawyer search tool to locate a suitable attorney near you or go to the website of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys at www.naela.org. You should expect to have to pay for a consultation using some of the excess money in your checking account, but it will be worth it.See question
About a week ago I got a shoplifting ticket for $300. I was told it's not mandatory to go to court but I was given a court date. Would it be beneficial to go or just pay the ticket? Also is this going to go on my permanent record, can it be removed?
Yes, it will go on your record if you don't contest the ticket and just pay the fine. No you won't be able to have it removed without an attorney. There are a lot more facts that would be needed to give you a better answer. For now you should hire an attorney to represent you. If you can't afford one, then go to court and ask the judge to appoint one for you. Depending upon the circumstances and your prior record, it might be possible to get a deferment, but you will need a lawyer.See question
My boyfriend's 5 year old daughter has been living with us for a few weeks now, we have her enrolled in kindergarten (as per her mother's request) and just found out her mom is in jail (again). My boyfriend is not on the birth certificate, but the...
Your boyfriend will need to petition the court for appointment as guardian. The court may not grant it though unless he can establish he has priority and that the guardianship is in her best interests. Your statement that your boyfriend "is not on the birth certificate, but there was an open child support case filed at one point, in which he did not do a paternity test but did not deny the child" isn't very clear. Either he was found to be the parent and child support was ordered or it wasn't. I am really surprised that Family Services hasn't stepped in. For now his best course of action would be to hire a family law attorney.See question
You really haven't provided enough information to give meaningful advice. Generally, if in the doctor's opinion your mother's continued residence in her home is a threat to her health, safety and welfare, he can and may be required to report them matter to Adult Protective Services. They will investigate the situation and if they agree an involuntary guardianship action may be commenced. Then it would be the court who orders the removal. You should schedule an appointment with an elder law attorney near your mother's hometown to discuss the situation in private.See question
My sister has it at this time as well as the death certificate
It doesn't just magically happen. There is a lot more to it then dad having died. As Jacob states, much more information is needed to answer your question, but assuming that your father lived in Wyoming and only his name is on the title and his estate is under $200,000 and does not contain any real property, after dad has been dead for 30 days, proven by his death certificate, title can be transferred in equal shares to all of his children. You will then need to get your sibling(s) to transfer their interest in the motorcycle to you. Rather than trying to do it on your own, you would be well advised to work through a probate attorney.See question

Attorneys Shields and Karamaros are giving you good advice when they suggest that you visit with an elder law attorney regarding your will, trust or powers of attorney sooner rather than later. Having a good power of attorney in place can avoid the need for a guardianship/conservatorship and at least in some jurisdictions you can state who you might want or not want serving as your guardian/conservator should the need ever arise.See question

Medicaid is a payor of last resort meaning private insurance pays first. Heed Attorney Johnson's warning. People don't get it rouble reporting the facts. They get in trouble when they try to hide information.See question
