If the house is about to be sold because the liens have been foreclosed on, you need to retain an attorney to attempt to file an action on order to show cause to stop the sale.
If the tax lien is being sold as opposed to the house actually being foreclosed on and sold, you will have a much easier time. You need to get the all facts and act accordingly.See question

You can't collect from the Dad. He is not a party to the tranaction.
You have to sue him, get a judgment and then try and enforce it. If you docket the judgement with the clerk of the Supreme Court in the county were it is rendered it is valid for 20 years, is a lien on real estate he may own in the county for 10 years and will negatively affect his credit.See question

Was a hair hearing requested after the decision was rendered which found that there was a 9 month penalty period?
Who filed the medicaid application?
Were you involved in the process?
At the agency level they will usually impose a penalty period on any gifts made during the five year period prior to the requested pickup date. However, if one files for a Fair Hearing the applicant can prevail if they can show that the gifts were made in the regular course of living one's life, there was a pattern of gifting over the years AND that the gifts were not make to qualify or Medicaid.

I assume that you are only receiving health insurance though Medicaid, know as "MAGI" Medicaid. Is that correct?
You should report receipt of the funds to Medicaid. As long as you are not receiving Institutional Medicaid or its equivalent the effects of the receipt of these funds should be minimal provided you take appropriate action..

You are probably being charged with a class A misdemeanor, petit larcency.
You will need an attorney to defend you.
If one is not appointed for you or you wish to retain private counsel let me know. I am a former Assistant District Attorney in Bronx County .
When you appear in court you will see that most defendants dress casually. Distinguish yourself by dressing as if you were going for a job interview at a nice office and always act respectfully.See question
Medicaid trust or Deed with life estate are for someone who will go to nursing home? what if my mother already has medicaid? Do those two still be needed to set up?
if your mother is already in a nursing home and receiving Medicaid benefits it is too late to transfer the property into a trust or to another while reserving a life estate. If she does so she could jeopardize her Medicaid benefits.
If she is still at home and receiving Medicaid it is technically not to late to make such a transfer. However if she needs to apply for nursing home Medicaid within 5 years of the transfer she could be denied.
This is a very complex area of law and my answers are very specific to the limited facts you provide.
I strongly suggest that you consult with an experienced Elder Law attorney.If you are interested in our firm we have offices in the Westchester and the Bronx.See question
I have been working with Real Estate Agent who is been showing me listings. This is my first time as a home buyer so I don't know if i need to make a contract with my agent in terms of commission.
As a general rule the real estate broker represents the seller. Therefore there is no need for you to sign a contract with the broker. This is even the case when the broker tells you they are "your" broker.
However, in certain circumstances the broker is actually the purchaser's agent and has a direct obligation to you as the purchaser. This practice is common in some states and is becoming more common in New York. It is still the exception to the general rule that real estate broker's represent the seller.
You need to have a frank discussion with your broker and if a contract is in order get one drawn up.See question
my ex wife has no contacted me or has any means of being contacted. I have no way to communicate with my daughter. Its been 4 months now. my ex wife has run off with her boyfriend who has been accused of being a pedophile. I am extremely worried.
I suggest you hire a private investigator to track her down. An application on order to show cause can be made in a NY Supreme or NY Family Court demanding a return of the child to NY. You can also make an application in the jurisdiction where you find her. If she is in the US it will be much easier for you as opposed to a foreign country. If the child did not have a passport they are probably in the US. I can recommend an investigator and handle the matter if you decide to handle it in NYSee question
