Case #19-0043677

Client seeks assistance with a probate matter. Client is living in a property owned by his deceased common law wife. Client’s wife died intestate in 2019, leaving her siblings as potential heirs. However, if afforded the status of a common law spouse; client would inherit his wife’s entire estate. A volunteer is needed to file a petition for citation to establish that letters of administration should be issued to client as a common law spouse and assist the client with probating the estate and transferring title to the property. Client will also need assistance addressing the Commonwealth’s estate recovery claim against the property stemming from medical assistance paid on behalf of client’s deceased wife.
