My parents divorced in 1992. My father had the house signed over to me and my mom. She is and has been in the hospital since May with a severe COPD exacerbation, as well as a few other medical problems. She has no insurance, and we are in the process of trying to get disability for her. We are currently waiting to recieve her birth certificate in the mail.
My question is, should I have a quick claim deed done to have her sign over her ownership of the house to me. Because I am afraid that if she should pass away or never be able to return home, that Medicare or Medicaid could request half of the value of the home and force me to sell the house?
Thank you in advance for your response.
