**** Changing your documents for Muniments of Title Proceedings:
To satisfy the Court that a muniment proceeding is appropriate, we ask that the attorneys add the following sentence to the form most commonly known as Proof of Death and Other Facts (when probating a will as a muniment of title): "The decedent did not apply for and receive Medicaid after March 1, 2005."
