Yes, you can make those arrangements by specific provisions in your will. One way is to give what is called a life estate in the property, which gives your boyfriend control of the property until his death, or until he no longer wants it.
There are other ways, using testamentary trusts,...Read more »
If you held the property as joint tenants with right of survivorship (that wording should be on the deed itself), then when he passed, you became the sole owner by operation of law. For record purposes, you should record the Certificate of Title, connecting to the...Read more »
The crucial part is ensuring that the creditor gets timely notice of the bankruptcy from the Bankruptcy Clerk, which means you/your lawyer must ensure that the addresses of each creditor are correct.

You don't say whether the hearing is set in Oklahoma District Court, or the US Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. Either way, if you fail to appear, a judgment will almost certainly be entered against you.

The applicable law may vary from state to state, but in most, if you present yourself, or yourselves, as man and wife, you may well become that, a "common law marriage". Once married, the only way to get unmarried is divorce, and that means a judge, and probably lawyers, need to be...Read more »
If your mother held shares of stock in her name, and held the original stock certificates, you don't need to look to Prudential to sell that stock. Any stockbroker could do the sale for you, or at least, for the court-approved personal representative of the estate.
Unless the son received some significant portion of the father's run-up of debt prior to the father's death, but within the time limitations of applicable "fraudulent transfer" statutes, there should be no legal liability of the son for the father's debts.
I'm very confused by Delaware state code's "duty to support" clause and how it applies to my bankruptcy case. The clause says each spouse has the duty to support the other, so my wife is technically responsible for my ER bills? But the subsequent clause states that this duty... Read more »
If your plan has been confirmed, there should be no effect on your move.
There are, however, some districts in which yearly financial reports are required. If you're in one of those districts, the Ch. 13 trustee may push you to increase plan payments if your monthly living expenses...Read more »
Basically, I am going through a divorce and need to move out. Since buying a condo would be cheaper than renting an apartment, my sister has offered to buy a condo and rent it out to me. Would this be allowed if I am currently in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy (without my spouse) or would they look at the... Read more »
I agree with the prior to answers. The bankruptcy rules and statutes target transactions in which "value", e.g., money's worth, leaves the debtor's estate, not where some benefit is incoming to the estate.
And assuming that you have a 5-year Ch. 13 plan, at the end of...Read more »

(1) If you can find the right person to talk with in the IRS, your problem should be resolvable. When you contact the IRS, keep asking for the next higher supervisor until you get someone who will work with you.
(2) Other than that, on January 1st, 2022, file your 2021 return, show the...Read more »
I received a discharge date on 5/8/19 on a Chapter 7 no asset. Pro se. The trustee submitted the final accounting report and Judge signed on 12/17/20. I was notified a settlement check went to the trustee. Does that mean they are going to re-open my case again? Can I hire an attorney to get my... Read more »
They have offered to pay for my college which I'm really thankful for, but reading through the document it seems like I'm essentially hand them full control over everything I own and will ever own. They say it's only to be used in case I get incapacitate but I don't see where it... Read more »
The simple answer is no, applying for a loan does NOT make you ineligible for bankruptcy relief. Do NOT make any material misrepresentations on your loan application. (It's a crime to make a false statement to a financial institution, insured by the federal government, in a loan...Read more »
To complete a "short sale", you need to procure the consent of the mortgage holders. Both of them, because your buyer will want to take legal title free of all liens and encumbrances. In other words, you need to persuade both lenders that the best way for them to be repaid is from a...Read more »
So I have my car and credit card from the same credit union. And I am not able to afford either payment. Hints trying to file chapter 7. If I file would I be able to get both of them written off? Or will they go after me and sue me for filling?
No one can hope to prevail by claiming some sort of damage simply because you have filed for bankruptcy relief. If you meet the eligibility requirements for the bankruptcy chapter of your choice, you're bullet-proof from any such claims.
However, it may be that some creditor may seek...Read more »
