You'd get the best input from a Tennessee attorney, but your question remains open for two weeks. From the description, it's difficult to tell exactly what happened.

I am joint owner of a house in Indiana via a quit claim deed that states "joint tenants with rights of survivorship". The other joint owner who is my grandma is now in a nursing home and has severe dementia. My aunt took power of attorney over her healthcare and has filed a lawsuit against me in my... Read more »
If the deed is to you and your grandmother as joint tenants with right to survivorship, you own half of the property (the house and lot) and your grandmother owns half of the property. That's called an undivided interest because each of you has equal rights to the entire property. Indiana law...Read more »

The $10,000 inheritance is disqualifying income in the month of receipt. There is not much you can do about that. If you still have that money on hand on the first day of the following month, sitting in a regular ol' checking account, for example, it will be a countable asset and that will again...Read more »
We are a doctors office and want to do education videos to display on TV in lobby. We have one doctor that says they will sue. It will be a caricature of the providers speaking and giving short statements. How did creators of South Park and Lil Bush do this?

And also someone told me... Read more »
Not in Texas. You may want to help your mother enter a memory care or a skilled nursing facility, though if she is being neglected because you cannot care for her at home anymore (when would you sleep?), Adult Protective Services may step in.
