Connolly Gallagher LLP Partner Mentioned in Philadelphia Inquirer Article
In “Children may have to foot bill for indigent parents’ care”, writer Erin Arvedlund takes stock of the region’s laws and practices of states and nursing homes looking to children to pay their adult parent’s debt to the state or nursing home for the cost of care. The article’s focus is Pennsylvania because that is where most of these filial responsibility cases have occurred. Although Delaware has a law similar to Pennsylvania’s, it has rarely, if ever, been used in the same way Pennsylvania’s has, as Trisha W. Hall notes. The article can be accessed here.
