My condolences on your loss. Under GA law, if a person dies without a will, the assets pass equally to the spouse and children with the spouse taking no less than 1/3. You can apply to be named as administrator over the estate. If your stepmother has been named as administrator, you are still...Read more »
This is not a probate question. You need to post this in the criminal law section. In short, it depends. Your probation officer may choose to file a revocation. You should post this question in the criminal law section for a more thorough response.
I filed a petition for removal of administrator of an estate. When the court date was set. The court sent notice to the wrong address. The petition specified that notice should be sent to my P. O. Box, but it was sent to the listed street address. Though all other notices(i.e. medidiation,... Read more »
I would recommend that you contact the court regarding this issue immediately. Most likely, you will have to file a Motion to set aside the Order of the Court. If you bring it to the court's attention, they may vacate the order.
The lawyer we had quit before we resolved anything. I’ve been living in my mamas trailer for 2 years next month. She told me to move in her place after she wanted to get put in the nursing home. She died 4 months after I moved in. I’m still here but my siblings was to evict me when I’ve been... Read more »
Hello. You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. This is a difficult question to answer given the information provided. I am unsure if anyone has actually filed to be named as administrator or executor based on the information provided. I will assume someone has petitioned to...Read more »
The answer it depends. If you consent to the proposed executor being named as the executor then you can sign the acknowledgment of service and have no objection to the probate of the will, then you can sign the acknowledgment. You make sure you have reviewed the will and do not see any problems...Read more »
You can file a Motion to require that she file the will if you are certain that he had a will. If a will has not been filed and you are not certain he had a will then you can file to be named as administrator over the estate.
My father recently passed in August. He had a total of 5 children including myself. He left one of my sisters as his executor. I have received a copy of his will but I do not really understand it. It seems very broad just states everything he has is to be equally divided between the 5 of us. Well I... Read more »
I would first like to express my sympathy for the loss of your father. It seems that your grief has been compounded by the turmoil in the family. When a will has language like "everything equally between my children" it is rather broad in the language but does not necessarily mean that...Read more »
In order to properly answer this question, a little more information is needed. I am not clear on what you are considering "heir" property. In any event, a person can only leave what they have so even if the person is staying in the property that does not necessarily give them title to...Read more »
I was in a situation where i was previously living and i needed to move. So it seemed like we could both help each other. He asked me if i would consider moving in with him as friends and help him get his house back in order, it would have probably been considered unlivable in its current state.... Read more »
This sounds like a really bad situation and my first response would be for you to leave and get yourself out of this situation. Your safety is of the utmost importance. I am not sure of the question. What is your specific question?
First, let me express my sincere sympathy regarding the loss of your mother. The answer to your question depends on many things and there is not enough information to provide a thorough answer. We would need to know whether your mother had a will, how the property was deeded, how much debt your...Read more »
I am the sole beneficiary of a 15 year old irrevocable trust and I believe the assets were recently moved into other brand new irrevocable trusts with new beneficiaries. (The grantor is the trustee) If the trustee has no other funds to reinstate my trust assets are the newly created irrevocable... Read more »
This can be considered a difficult and loaded question without the benefit of looking at the language in the trust. As a general answer, I will say that this is possible. It is called decanting. If you are concerned about the trustee you may reach out to the trustee or consult with an attorney...Read more »
I would like to express my condolences for the loss of your father. From the information you provided, I assume that your Father did not have a will at the time of his death. As such, in GA, his assets would be divided between your step-mother and his children with the step-mother taking no less...Read more »
On the way. I didn't make it. Got there at 9 this morning and they tell me it was too late. We had to be out in 24 hours this man didn't make out a new lease when the old one went out I thought I would had 60 days to get out according to the tenant at will. I have every message between...

This is a difficult time. Under Georgia law, when someone files a dispossessory action against you, you have 7 days to file an answer from the date it is served (service may be posted on your door). If you do not file the answer within the seven (7) days the landlord can get an writ against you...Read more »
