I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Navigating estate matters can be complex, especially in situations like yours where the last will and testament was not completed. As the person with power of attorney in her living will, you have a significant role, but it's important to...View More
I know of an elderly woman and a disabled man that are being forced to give up their narcotic pain medication to their PA every month. If they do not do so they are threatened with nursing homes and homes for the mentally disabled. They have also been forced to cut contact with their... View More
I am set to be 1/3 heir of my grandfathers estate. Guardianship of my grandfather was recently granted to his friend, who also happens to be the eventual executor of his will. He was placed in an assisted living facility, and his home is currently vacant.
No. The rental and the sale both will have to be at full fair market value in order to preserve your grandfathers estate. You may be able to rent it and buy it later, but they will both have to be at fair market value.
I am mom, caregiver and guardian to my adult son whom has significant disabilities. He is unable to care for himself due to cognitive and psychiatric disorders. I am the only person willing to care for him and I cannot continue this role much longer. I do not own any property or assets to provide... View More
Family farm was deeded to stepmother 7 years ago. Just finding out after my father’s death last month. So far no known will. Supposed will from 20+ years ago per fathers conversation with son.

My nearly 40 yr old daughter and her family moved in when they were evicted, and it was supposed to be temp. They do not pay rent and have totally trashed our house. We need them out of here as the stress is unbearable. Her husband smirked at us and said we couldnt evict them due to covid. Surely... View More
Covid protections for evictions have expired. You can evict them now most anywhere in Kentucky. Simply go to your district court snd file a petition to evict. Also, if you ever catch them all gone from your home at the same time, simply set their belongings on the curb, change the locks and you...View More
Grandmother wanted to give me home before she had a stroke and had to go to nursing home. Can she still sell me the house from the nursing home? I keep telling her I don't want to get into legal trouble. I am her power of attorney we are paying for her care out of pocket so medicaid is not... View More
Yes, presuming she is in her right mind and still wanting to transfer the house to you. I would NOT use the power of attorney to sign for her if she is of sound mind and can sign herself bc the POA use reeks of undue influence (even if there is none).
There are french lines draining water from the top of the park directly under my mobile home going from N to S, and also from the top of a high hill going under my home going W to E.

A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. At this point you could reach out to attorneys to discuss in greater detail. If you gathered your medical records, that would be valuable in a legal consult. If the engineer provided you with a report, that could also...View More

My mom is in a nursing home and my question is if there is a nurse working there that I would prefer not to care for mom do I have the right to refuse the care of a nurse for my mom in the nursing home? My mom always gets her medicine by 8:30 pm and this one nurse gives it to her between 930 and... View More
You need to address your concerns with the nursing supervisor and director of the home. However, if your mother is receiving her medicine as prescribed, it does not appear at this point there is a valid claim for abuse or negligence.
And waiting an arrest warrant can the charges be dropped simply because the person has agreed to repay the money? Mind you that at this point the bank has already returned $10,000 of the money. This would be a daughter stealing from her father with severe dementia. Elder abuse charges were also... View More
No, no, no. Theft is actionable in criminal court. She needs to get a criminal defense attorney on her side. Before she has someone post more questions on the internet which admit guilt she should seek the advice of a local criminal defense attorney.
