It depends. That is my standard answer to most questions because the answer depends on the circumstances of the individual’s situation. The upcoming legal lecture, “Should You Ever Put Someone Else’s Name on Your Deed?” gives you factors to consider if you are trying to make that decision.
As part of a fall speaker series, this free lecture is put on by St. Johns County Legal Aid, and will be given at the Players Community Senior Center in Ponte Vedra October 24. Call for the time at (904) 280-3233.
The remainder of the speaker series schedule is as follows:
River House – Times 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
November 8 – “How to Avoid the Need for Guardianship”
December 6 – “How to Handle Your Kids on Legal Issues”
This speaker series is part of the outreach of St. Johns Legal Aid, a non-profit agency whose directive is to provide “A wealth of justice for those who have neither.” Megan Wall is the managing attorney, and she is available to meet individually with elders at her office (222 San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine) or at River House. You may schedule an individual appointment through her office at (904) 827-9921 x 206.
