Estate administration can help when a loved one has passed away. It’s a good idea to visit with a lawyer just to check that everything is in order. It’s often helpful to take care of any possible issues that may arise sooner rather than later when finalizing the distribution of an estate. A common question is how to handle an estate if a loved one has been receiving medical assistance. Sometimes medical assistance may have a claim on the estate that is unbeknownst to the beneficiaries. A lawyer may be able to intervene and work with medical assistance to obtain a portion of the estate to be passed on to loved ones. Attorney Lisa Hill discusses estate administration and follow up when a loved one passes way in this interview on KDUZ 1260 AM’s show “Legal Update.”
