The problem is that my little bro is expecting a lot of money to come from moms insurance money. He is gonna be very upset when he finds out that it has to be spent and she has to be broke before she can sign up for Medicaid. I recently placed her in a nursing home cause i could no longer care for her. He didn't like the idea, he is the only one that doesn't agree it was best her and i. The lawyer has advised me to cash her life insurance policies, give half to the nursing hone, finish paying for her funeral , thank goodness she had forthought! Pay a few of her outstanding bills, then divide the rest of the money between us. Which by the government rules has to be spent on mine & brothers own funeral expenses. There will be no cash for either one of us. And if there was, there would only be maybe 1300.00 instead of 10 grand cash like he's thinking. How do i deal with him? How do i go about explaining this to him?
