Saving my family property.

Hello to all who are reading this. I am starting this fundraiser as a last chance effort to save my family property. If you are at all concerned about the validity of my fundraiser, I would be happy to answer any questions over the phone after communicating first through GFM. I received a fair amount of scam calls which is the reason for initially communicating through GFM. Thank you for understanding. I am at risk of losing a piece of property on which I am living that once belonged to my parents. Not only am I currently living on this property but it is where I grew up. The state of Washington has initiated what is called "Estate Recovery". For those of you who aren't familiar with this, it is where the state can recover medical expenses paid for by the state when you are on Medicaid and I do believe Medicare as well. In my mother's case, she was on permanent disability and was unable to work. My mother passed away in 2013. In 2014, the state of Washington placed a lien on my family property for just over $37000 plus interest. I am well aware of the estate recovery process however, I am almost certain that they did not follow proper procedures. Prior to placing the lien, they are required to send out a notice to the estate executor and/or any heirs to the estate and give an opportunity for a hearing. Neither myself, my brother nor my sister had ever received any kind of notice regarding the lien. It wasn't until my brother passed away late 2018 that the lien was brought to our attention by the our Estate lawyer. Currently the state is pressing for repayment and looking to foreclose on my family home and push me and my girlfriend into homelessness. If the state did in fact fail to follow proper procedures in my opinion their claim against my family property and our home should not be valid. I'm pretty sure at this point I may be out of time to negotiate. I'm open to any help from a Lawyer and am in desperate need to raise this money immediately. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me your contact information. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. God Bless.
