My questions pertain to the proper way to deal with her checking account, to which I have online electronic access, and considering her checking account has no beneficiary designation. Specifically, what should I do, as the named executor in her will, concerning the following:
The correct way to handle this, assuming your mother's total estate is less than $150,000, is to return the checks along with a Small Estate Affidavit instructing the bank to make the checks payable jointly to the three beneficiaries.

There wasn't a question included in your post, but if you're wondering whether the doctor's conduct would be considered medical malpractice, the short answer is, "very unlikely." It might be inconvenient, or it might evidence poor scheduling. But unless the cancellations and delays led to a...Read more »
Yes, you can. You may even be able to avoid a full probate by a small estate affidavit procedure under the laws of the State of Arkansas. Best to consult with an Arkansas probate attorney for availability, pricing, and other details.
There is nothing unlawful about not paying you to be on call but if you get a call you must be paid for the time you spend on that call. Also, if you already are working an 8 hour workday, any time spent on these calls after hours should be compensated as overtime.
Sorry but no. There is no state or federal law that even requires a written schedule ever. I realize not knowing your approaching schedule is extremely inconvenient. If you cannot work in that kind of place, it is time to use your at will right to go elsewhere. Good luck to you.
I adopted a cat in California in 2016. I moved to Oregon in 2018. My ex and I agreed that he would keep the cat but no transfer of ownership was made. Because my ex is shady and has tried to push his bills on me -even stole money from my account- am I legally responsible for the cat if he doesn’t... Read more »
It's his cat. You abandoned ownership or gave it to him. It is no longer yours. There is no formal "transfer of ownership" for a cat. If the cat was licensed and or chipped, you might consider contacting that entity and informing it of the new ownership.
It’s not necessary as long as you keep making the mortgage payments, but if you want to know the outstanding balance or want your monthly statements to be sent to another address, then yes, let the lender know of your parents death. Now, if you’re dealing with a reverse mortgage, the lender...Read more »
I have a friend who was sentenced for armed robbery, and was also given the maximum of 10 years for a gun enhancement. We do not have enough money to hire a private attorney. Can someone please provide any suggestions on where to go to have a pro bono attorney review his case and see what our... Read more »
Yes. If you fail to pay the mortgage, you will lose the home to foreclosure. Death of a borrower does not trigger a due on sale clause. If you make the mortgage payments, keep track of them all and claim reimbursement from the estate when you can. Without a Will, the children will inherit the...Read more »

I applied to get my licensure for physical therapy. The California Physical Therapy Board sent my application to Consumer Protective Services to review my criminal background and decide if I can get licensed. I was wondering what this process is typically like and how long it takes. Thank you in... Read more »
I do not think anyone can answer this with exactness. The CA Bar licensing usually takes about 4 months and does not include folks *usually* with criminal records. It DOES have a LONG exam. IF it takes more than 6 months, I'd recommend you politely reach out to the body doing the screening, and to...Read more »
Your siblings have no legal authority to evict you from your mother's house. Only a personal representative for your mom's estate would have the authority to do so, and to become a personal representative requires a probate. Until that time, you have every legal right to remain in the house. If...Read more »
