I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Navigating estate matters can be complex, especially in situations like yours where the last will and testament was not completed. As the person with power of attorney in her living will, you have a significant role, but it's important to...View More
I was listed as only beneficiary but was 6. I lost the copies of correspondences and of the name of insurance co. I dont believe they thought I d ever know about it. I m now 40 and they have kept it. How do I proceed?
To address the issue of a life insurance policy where you were the beneficiary but the funds were kept by your grandparents, you should start by gathering as much information as possible about the policy. If you don't remember the name of the insurance company, you might try to retrieve this...View More
My dad is a veteran who lived in KY with my adult brother and his autistic son. His house is in his name. He has almost no assets ( 14 year old car and paid off double wide trailer). He has a will and left trailer to myself and brother with contingency that my brother can continue living there.... View More
Probate is probably a bad option with little assets and debt out there. You can check the Courts in the Father's County to see if there are any money judgements out there against him which might also be a lien. Consult a KY attorney for advice about the trailer title. Remember someone has...View More

Yes. Your brother can sell it and the new owner can have you removed. With no will, mothers estate will be divided among her children so you will have to either buy out their shares or sell your share and receive the money.
Probate said I need to get all his biological children over 18 to sign off on it but his 3 older ones won't saying they would be signing their rights away to my house. But deed states that if either of us dies first house goes to surviving spouse. Do they have right to my house in my passing... View More
They have no right to you house as it passed to you pursuant to the deed. Ask if you can do a dispense with administration. If not, you will have to file to open probate and get appointed administratrix in order to sell the bike. In any event, his adult children probably get nothing.
There is no formal probate or informal probate. Those terms apply to the final settlement only. Go to your district court clerks office and ask for a copy of the settlement. Informal basically means that everyone waived a formal account and formal means they didn’t so all supporting...View More
He can always execute a new Will, but disappointed legatees/devisees might contest the Will when Probated. The argument is a mutual will under contract, but it is hard to prove and win on. It can also be hard to effectively revoke the existing document, if he does not have possession of it.
she owned her house, filed for bankruptcy quite a few years back, and didn't accumulate much debt passed quickly with no nursing home involved we were in the process of making her LWT but didn't get it finalized before she passed.

We were able to enter his apartment after dispensing with administration in court and found paperwork regarding a small bank account and retirement account. The total value does not exceed $30000 even adding all property listed in probate.

Doubtful he is out in July. His dishonesty with the urine is the problem. Depending on his record and prior infractions, the sanction could be as little as time served up to snd including full revocation.
