I concur that you should consult with a local attorney. You're raising things that don't matter (whether or not sister lived with dad) and glossing over the key element (undue influence). It is critical that you don't emphasize the wrong things and that you DO provide real proof which is not as...Read more »
My husband's uncle passed away with no will, no spouse and no children. He is proceeded in death my his parents and one brother. How I read the law is that the inheritance goes to the 2 surviving siblings and the children of the deceased brother. Am I reading that correctly.
My mom was going through court with her dead husband's kids so to protect this house she added my brother to the deed because I live in another state. Now he is fighting me even though he know what my mom wanted and won't split the profit from the sale. Do I have a case?
My Uncle passed away WITHOUT a Will and only his name is on Title of mobile home. My Uncle's roommate/partner was also on lease & continued to live there until he passed away 1 year later. My cousins are next of kin & live out of state. Since my Uncle's assets are less than $10,000, my cousins do... Read more »
WILL you? Hard to say. You will almost certainly 'lose' your security deposit, and assuming that is 1.5 month's rent, I doubt a landlord will sue for half a month's unpaid rent if you don't also trash the place.
A BETTER course of action would be to contact the...Read more »
On the initial contract, the seller and I agreed to close the house no later than Feb 19. Due to the seller not being able to fix the requested repairs, still can't close the house at March 5. Per seller's request, we are suppose to close on March 6, but now due to missed communication between... Read more »
If the original deal is 'dead' you can ask for any modification, or just not close at all. If you've extended the deadlines however, it is impossible to suggest what might be appropriate under the circumstances. Offers are always subject to negotiation, but once you've both agreed to something, you...Read more »
Close Estate Administration & Terminate Personal Representative Authority. I do not understand this language. Please advise. Thank you. I will see and talk with a lawyer later this week, but am confused. I am settling my husband's estate; but my husband's daughter is my problem. I let her handle... Read more »
If you have a lawyer, he will be in a much better position to answer this. The point of the letter from the court is that the appointed personal representative has NOT got everything under control and has failed to complete the probate appropriately. Whether or not that will cause YOU an issue is...Read more »
I was slandered, potential buyers were scared away and denied to buy my home. I do not receive any phone calls back from my messages I leave for them. Can I still sell or move my trailer? Not sure what to do?
To the extent the ESTATE has a lawsuit, if you are validly excluded from the will, you too have no claim. If YOU personally also have a cause of action that may not be the case. To know for sure however, it would require an actual consultation with a local attorney to review all the facts and...Read more »
I was quit claim deeded 1/2 a house/land when my step dad died. He also made provision for his gf to live there one year after he died. The house is now vacant but I believe she moved out long ago and my 1/2 sister, the other owner chose not to have her attorney notify mine that the house was... Read more »
It matters not when the vacation actually happened. If she is now out, you can sell your interest. Frankly you could have sold your interest at any time, but selling a 'half interest' in a house is not exactly easy. The only 'easy' sale would be to the other half owner, and it sounds like you may...Read more »
What does the 'trust/will' say about this? Because you are the only son it does NOT mean you're entitled to specific items unless there is a will that says so. And without seeing the documents it is impossible to answer these sorts of questions.
Gather up the paperwork, and seek the advice...Read more »

Whatever you call it, it is 'income' to her (whomever 'she' is ....) and it may or may not disqualify her from receiving SSDI, Without seeing the details and discussing what is REALLY going on here -- for example, why do you care what it is called?
If this is causing you or her issues (and...Read more »
