My father left 20 years ago, they never formally divorced and both names remain on the NJ property title. We recently moved to NJ to care for her and she passed away 2 months later. She willed her 1/2 to my brother and I, but we have been told that succession in NJ goes to him regardless of a will (or we have to buy him out). Additionally, he may need to enter long term care (in NY state). We are trying to keep the property and also want to avoid any liens. She had about 12000 in credit card debt and 200,000 in medical bills (most being paid by medicaid). He has been in and out of hospitals for the past 2 years, unknown medical debt (no other debt). He is a vet and disabled so we think most of his bills are being paid by medicare and the VA. Help... so convoluted. Where do we start?
