Hello everyone, I posted last year (Justice for Lilian and others...) On the terrible time we had (and still have) trying to get a retrospective assessment of my mother-in-laws care. We eventually got the NHS Trust to agree they will reasses everything and they informed the Council in February of this. My mother-in-law sadly died in September The County Council say there is a debt of £50,000 but they are not prepared to wait and they are seeking to have the debt moved from the mother-in-laws name and sue my wife for the debt instead of my mother-in-laws estate. - I'm at my wits end with all of this and I'm trying to protect my wife as shes on the verge of a nervous breakdown!! I received a letter from a solicitor acting for the council dated the 14th April, which I received on the 17th (since then I have spoken to a solicitor) but theyre dragging their feet and we're not much further forward. I believe the papers are deemed served three days after the date of the letter and that gives me up to the 31st to put in some kind of defence SO I HAVE ONLY DAYS NOW or this might be granted. I hope this is the right place to post this as I couldnt see a specific folder, so I posted here as it stands the best chance of being seen (so I apologise in advance to any moderator if this is wrong). Can ANYONE offer any kind of help, is there a solicitor in the Staines, Middlesex area. DESPERATE!!!!
