A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks.

You will need to search the title first. Assuming you own an interest, you are probably now a tenant in common with another.

Mother will have to hire a competent KS attorney to file a Declaratory Judgment and Injunction action. Search both titles for easements and row's. If nothing, she relies on an easement by prescription. Without legal suit she loses the driveway forever.
You have not stated the exact estate you own, but either tenant in common can sell their individual interest. Usually no prudent buyer would purchase without receiving the fee simple absolute conveyed by all titled owners. Partition is also a possibility.
As a general matter, it is not a requirement to have a will typed, and there is no requirement that the will be typed by someone other than yourself. However, there are a LOT of other variables to consider. As a probate and estate planning attorney, I've seen countless messes that not only...Read more »
In Kansas, a Will, by itself, won't transfer any assets until it has been probated. This is a court process usually supervised by a Judge.

I had not received any termination letter. I had received a retirement card signed by fellow workers and a gift card.... Read more »
Probably more facts are needed before a good answer can be given. How many times has this been said to customers? Are they saying anything more specific about you, and being fired? What else are they saying about you? Has this affected your good name in the community where you live? Has it...Read more »
My husband is refinancing his mortgage. We are now married so the bank said I have to be a grantor. It looks like the grantors (both my husband and I) are required to pay the taxes. Is this legal? Should it not say the borrower is responsible for the taxes instead of the grantors? (It specifically... Read more »
It looks like there are a number of different topics/questions here. Generally speaking, a bank will want both spouses to sign the mortgage, which is to say they want both spouses to consent to the lien being attached to the real estate. As a married couple, both spouses have an interest in the...Read more »

My aunt and cousin have dual power of attorney of my grandma and my cousin is making decisions(medically and financially) not in the best interest of my grandma. What can we and my aunt do to take control and take care of grandma?
Yes, as long as your grandmother still has legal capacity (she knows what she is doing), she can revoke the prior POA and appoint someone else. If she does not have capacity, then no. You would have to file a guardianship suit (here in Louisiana we call this "Interdiction") to care for...Read more »

Yes---perhaps the law enforcement officer's investigation is only just concluding so until he concludes it, he is not in position to issue a ticket. Please remember, a ticket is only an accusation and the prosecutor would still have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt each and every element...Read more »
I live out of state. I'm in the middle of probate in KS, and I want to change my lawyer and complete the process myself, is this possible? If so, what are the steps and would I need to appear in KS at some point?

Limiting the answer to probate matters involving decedent's estates:...Read more »
