AGR Legal Services addresses numerous current legal topics in this Blog. Curious what a probate estate is? Wondering if a guardianship or conservatorship is necessary for your loved one? Is the creditor that called trying to collect a debt from your loved one’s estate violating the law? AGR Legal Service’s blog, authored by Principal Attorney and Owner Aubrey Gann-Redmon, addresses frequently asked questions that arise in her cases and meetings with clients. Topics range from current legal issues in the Kansas City area (are those red light cameras legal?!) to covering the trends and updates in Aubrey’s focus areas of probate & trust litigation and elder law & estates. Topics include the growing trend of using mediations in elder law cases instead of seeking litigation in guardianships and conservatorships; when probate is necessary in personal injury cases; whether the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act applies to debt collectors in probate cases; and whether Medicaid can confiscate all the assets from an estate. Upcoming topics will include the basics of applying for government benefits and the pros and cons to receiving those benefits. There will also be posts on contesting creditor claims against estates, and strategies for keeping more money in the pockets of estate beneficiaries and heirs. The blog will explore modern estate planning strategies, including the use of transfer on death designations to avoid probate. Have a question you’d like to see addressed on the Blog?
