    Default How Does a Personal Services Contract Work for Asset Protection

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Indiana

    My husband wants me to go into a nursing home. He also wants me to sign something called a Personal Services Contract. I don't understand it and the lawyer can not fully explain it. Can anyone else?

    Thanks.

    If your lawyer has seen the document, does not understand what your husband is trying to accomplish, and advises you not to sign it, we have no basis to second-guess your lawyer.

    We have not seen the document.

    His lawyer prepared it. I have no lawyer. Have no money for a lawyer of my own. My husband pays the bills. I am disabled. It basically says that I will reimburse my caretaker $20 an hour for any work he does for me. Husband is preparing papers to have me placed in nursing home, and protecting his assets, and be placed on Medicaid. I don't understand the need for it. Husband says I must sign all the papers he puts in front of me or he will no longer take care of me.

    Contact elder protective services in your area. Refuse to sign anything unless they agree that you should.

    In your past posts, you were always talking about your sister. Now, your husband is doing the same thing to you?

    No, it is my sister. I am just trying to get information for her and she is telling me what to ask.

    She called adult protective services in her area but they have not gotten back to her or else her husband intercepted the message and has not given it to her.

    Then you should call them and explain what is going on. They will make a visit to her that her husband cannot intercept.
