My sister and her husband are going through a bad divorce. He left two weeks before the birth of their last kid. She has the house. He filed taxes jointly, and the federal return came to the house. She held it and they came to an agreement on how to spend it. It was only in a text so nothing... Read more »
The Will must be probated, and the court must appoint the personal representatives (executors/executrix in Virginia) before they have any power at all. If the bank account is not a probate asset. like an account in which a beneficiary is named or a joint account that was not created for the benefit...Read more »
Wanted to know because I'm looking to open a partnership or llc. No financial advice will be given to partners or members. One person would do all the transactions on behalf of company. This is for investment purposes.
If the transactions are by the Managing Member or General Partner for and only on behalf of the company in only its private securities account and the company is not in the business of just buying and selling securities as a Broker or Dealer then in my opinion no registration would be required.
This is not a DIY situation. You need a lawyer. But, the specific answer to your question is that a power of attorney expires when the principal (your father) dies. Sometimes, the attorney-in-fact (your sister) has the power to make financial transactions during your father's life using the...Read more »
If the origin of the debt was in Virginia and was connected to a written agreement, there is a 5 year statute of limitations that applies to the debt. The Statute of Limitations defense is an affirmative defense so it must be raised after a lawsuit is filed.
Their is the local branch that the person was hired but the person works all over the country with the large nat. company. It is still active on the website. I know they scrubbed social media for everything/ anything when he hired, but the liar wrote this bit and they missed it. Can I file a cease... Read more »
Need guidance on arrest for credit card fraud that I did not commit. I have a clean record and work as a licensed therapist. I own a solo private practice in VA. Last week, I was unexpectedly arrested at home. I was handcuffed in my kitchen and escorted to the police car in the street (blocking... Read more »
It took a lot of effort on my part to get them to agree to limited access - like I showed them the VA law. They are now claiming it is their bank policy to make a list of the contents. I think they can observe but privacy dictates that they can not see the contents.
Now that you have "limited access" the bank has every right to take an inventory of the contents of your deceased uncle's safe deposit box--if for no other reason that to be able to defend itself if there ever is a claim filed against the bank.
They’ve sent checks & debit cards to other addresses despite our contact with their fraud department. We haven’t even been reimbursed yet for our checking & savings being wiped clean. While we were on the phone Friday locking down the accounts we watched as someone transferred our... Read more »
This sounds like some sort of an insider electronic hacking situation. If the amount of money is worth it, try hiring a lawyer to take up the job of fighting with the USAA bureaucracy instead of you having to do it. The first order of business would be to move all the money you still have at USAA...Read more »

That today payment would be $415 (on a $100 overdraft fee) if I go to court payment would be $1245 with court fees. I googled the company EDR in Maryland but couyfind any... Read more »

The dealership ran our pre-approval and finalized our loan. Our first payment is supposed to be due the... Read more »
A lady wants to sell a bar of gold in country of Ghana.She is informed she needs a "bank guarantee" to sell them.She says she has to pay $4000 dollars to gain access to buyers of the gold. Is this valid or not?
She would be wise to consult a lawyer in Ghana before proceedings. May countries have at many times in history restricted the sale of gold, both to currency security and for fraud prevention. It is not at all unimaginable that Ghana retains such a legal structure. She might prefer to sell the gold...Read more »
She can ask, but no bank that I know of would allow such a procedure for anything other than a VERY small account (or one that has a beneficiary named). Probate of some sort is usually necessary in such circumstances.
Consult with a local probate attorney as there are often...Read more »
Firstly, we live in the state of Virginia and I appreciate anyone's professional time and counsel. My mother had numerous life insurance policies ranging from $1,000 to 10,000 and has me named as the sole beneficiary on all policies. She had no will and her house and land have been in mine...

The proceeds of the life insurance policies should pass to the beneficiaries outside of the probate estate. Likewise the jointly owned bank accounts, which should pass outside of probate to the surviving owners of the accounts. The credit card debt can reach assets of the Probate estate, which...Read more »
