Contractor billed his customer. Contractor customer wants to pay me $400 instead of the $750 billed. I want the $750. I put in all the hours at a low price per hour. I suggested to contractor that he should file a mechanics lien against the property (a website). I want to get paid the full... Read more »
This form is for informal probate of will and informal appointment of personal representative. In the verification part I sign my name but the form part for the Notary Public only asks for the County of____ State of Colorado
I'm going a little out of my bailiwick to answer what really is a Colorado question here, but my solution would be to strike the word "Colorado" and write "Georgia." Acts of notaries public in one state are generally given full faith and credit in others.
No such docket is kept by the courts or any government agency. But since foreclosure information is publicly available (in newspaper notices and deed records), I wouldn't rule out some internet firm is consolidating that information. Google is your friend here.
Sorry to say it, but you are still liable per the terms of the promissory note you signed at the time of the mortgage closing. But the debt is now "unsecured" debt, which puts the bank on about the same footing as a credit card company.
If the property was petitioned for in the year's support proceeding, the certificate will transfer title. The probate court is required to record a certificate of year's support in the deeds and records of the county in which the awarded real property is located. If you are concerned whether your...Read more »
The ordinary standard of care in a contract (and in all of human relations) is that of "reasonableness." The time-honored "reasonable man" standard of our jurisprudence is less strict than - say - the "duty of loyalty" owed by a fiduciary or the duty of managers of a corporation to act with the...Read more »
Obviously, a little more information would be needed to determine what you mean by "inseparable." A promissory note is incorporated by reference in a security deed. As such, they constitute one, complete agreement, and to that extent, they are "inseparable."
It is, in almost all circumstances, impossible to get a judge to render an opinion outside of a courtroom setting. One of the most stringent rules governing judges is that forbidding "ex parte" conversations - that is, communications with one party to a matter that aren't opened up to the other...Read more »
More information is necessary, but under certain circumstances, swift action in probate court can deal with a great deal of estate debt. My recommendation is to contact a probate attorney with all due dispatch
You may not at all need to petition to administer the estate, which can be a cumbersome process and involve filings of inventory, posting bond, etc.. Often a petition for "year's support" will both dispose of the estate and reap you substantial tax savings.
Since I'm answering this question months after its posting, I'm sure the issue is moot now. But the reason is that your mother is petitioning to receive some of your father's property as a spousal right. She must either obtain your consent to this or incur some fees in getting you personally served...Read more »
