Q: Does a life insurance policy have to be listed in probate?

I have been paying on a life insurance policy for my great uncle for over 20 years and am listed as the beneficiary, does this policy have to be listed in the probate proceedings?

Steven Basche
Steven Basche answered on Jan 23, 2022

Not strictly speaking. Life insurance passes outside of probate. That said, the proceeds will probably need to be listed on the estate tax return. The proceeds may be included in your great uncle's estate, but unless the total is over 9.1 million (for 2022), no estate tax will be owed.

Your parent's impediments for traveling abroad and back to the U.S. are not going to be obstacles for you unless your parent acquired the immigrant visa by fraud and you derived your status from your parent.

Lindy R. Urso answered on Jan 18, 2022

Rather than appeal, you may want to hire a lawyer to try to reopen that old ticket and withdraw guilty / nolo plea. Once it's gone, you can reapply. The problem happened because, when possession of weed was a Misdemeanor, it was a disqualifier for a permit. When they decriminalized... Read more »

Your friend needs to make sure she has her passport with her at all times to avoid any problems with the sponsor. You mention she has a sponsor but is on a visitor's visa and that she was engaged. Usually someone on a visitor's visa does not need a sponsor so it is a bit confusing when... Read more »

Very often after a revocable trust is created (or at the same time) the grantor who sets up the trust will transfer his or her house to the trust via a deed. It is unusual, very unusual, for the trust itself to convey real property.

Since his solely owned assets are more than $40,000, you won't be able to file a short form probate (called an affidavit in lieu of... Read more »
