My father had an investment account with cash and stocks that he inherited. We have recently divided the cash asset from the account but I have asked to be bought out completely. My brother says it's not possible. I want to know if it is possible or if I can force the sale of the stocks? I... Read more »
You should definitely consult an attorney to be sure that signing these documents serves your best interests. You will be donating something to her that is yours- so be careful! Power of attorney let’s her act on your behalf- so be extra careful and be sure that is something you want to do.
Possibly, but without seeing the paperwork setting up the clause and knowing the circumstances behind the language, it is difficult to provide an informed answer----that said, if there is a chance to change that, then your best bet to do so would be with legal representation so I would recommend...Read more »
I'm not sure how much nor the status of the case. I received a message that it was in there. My siblings had the heir's property partitioned sometime last year. I'm sure it isn't much and would like to withdraw it on my own if possible are there special forms that I need to use... Read more »
Depending on the status, you want to have an Order signed by the Judge stating that you are entitled to withdraw/receive those funds from the registry. Depending on the status and amount, it might be best to have a lawyer represent you and accomplish this.
Based on your post---your Dad's will only passes what he owns or the portion he owns just as your Mom's will only passes what she owns or the portions she owns. In the case of property and assuming each owned an undivided 1/2 interest, then Dad's will can only give grandchild...Read more »
Cops told me she will press charges tomorrow if anything broken or damaged. She doesn’t even live there. She illegally evicted me 10 days ago. Never served an eviction notice. She gifted me her home, got pissed at the world one day, told the cops that she allowed me to stay there while she was... Read more »
Inherit all. We have 2 children ages now 17&24. My main question is that in the divorce papers I signed over all properties, cars, home etc...in other words I left with the clothes on my back literally. BECAUSE OF THAT FORCED DECISION DOES THAT IN FACT VOID THE WILL? My xhusband just passed... Read more »
If your ex husband got the immovable property and vehicles, then those items are now in his estate. If he left you everything in his will, then you get it all, minus any forced share to your children. Your divorce is irrelevant to the enforceability of the will. If he never got around to...Read more »
Joint and Mutual Wills are almost always asking for a Will Contest after one or both testators die. Do not draft nor execute anything like it. Two separate Wills, even with extremely similar legacies and devises, are always better.
Usually when a seller reserves mineral rights, they reserve them forever. You might think about negotiating a lower price because you will be getting less than you originally expected, or say no to the reservation of mineral rights, or say yes to only a partial reservation.
If mean written by hand (manuscript) then it's an olographic will, and it can be legal if it is entirely handwritten by the testator, and if it's dated and signed by the testator. If it's typed or printed of of a computer, then it's not handwritten, but it can be a valid...Read more »
However, she's not able to take on decisions and handle finances. So she let her sister (which is his step daughter)take over it all. My father has 3 biological kids by his first wife. Both wife's are deceased. As his biological kids. Do we have any rights or say so regarding our father.... Read more »
Your facts are not clear. If his sister had a durable power of attorney (DPOA), that gave her the power to act for your dad. However, if she is no longer able to serve, the successor named to her in the DPOA would than act. She does not have the power to delegate her power to someone else....Read more »
If I understand you correctly, your step mom did not probate the will because everything was held jointly. If this is the case then all assets are now hers by operation of law. You and your children have no right to any of those assets. She is free to dispose of them in any way she chooses. She...Read more »
I been living here 10+yrs and grandmother living here longer. Will has been claimed invalid according to courts. I have two siblings & brother doesn't want estate but sister does and am currently trying to work a deal with her. We live in Louisiana.
If you or are an owner or heir to the property, they have no right to evict you. To require you to move would most likely require one of your siblings to file to have the property partitioned or sold. Good luck.
