I agree with the other attorney. You can call the non-emergency law enforcement phone number and make a police report if you believe a crime has occurred. You can also speak with the executor of the estate and they can file a motion within the probate case to ask the Court to enter an order...View More
When a married person dies in Nebraska, the surviving spouse is typically entitled to an elective share of the estate (either 1/3 or 1/2 depending on if there are children). This applies even if the deceased spouse left a will giving everything to other beneficiaries.
In Nebraska, whether you are entitled to anything from the sale of your late father's home depends on several factors, including how the property was owned, your father's will (if he had one), and state inheritance laws. If the home was owned jointly by your father and his wife, it likely...View More
My sister passed away last year. She had named her two children as beneficiaries on all of her accounts except this one. Her total estate was slightly over $100,000, so we can't use the Small Estate Affidavit or Transfer of Personal Property Without Probate forms. Is there a simpler way to... View More
Who is the beneficiary? That person needs to make a claim against the insurance co. for the annuity death benefit. Legal Suit is very difficult as to which jurisdiction to sue in, which is probably not the State you are in. Read the Annuity Contract and hire a NE attorney to start making a...View More
You might move to be removed as Personal Representative. But all assets that have come into your possession would have to be transferred to the new, proposed PR. Federal Court probably has no jurisdiction in this matter, and if a Court wants a hearing, that is the Judge's discretion, not...View More
In some cases, a probate case has to be filed in court but not in all cases. You should consult an attorney in person, who works in probate, or in real estate, or both, for guidance. The attorney should review the Will, the relevant real estate records, and any other relevant info before...View More

My dad passed, my brother removed mom's name so he's the only person on the title. My mother is elderly and she said she didn't know. I was never consulted and found out by looking at the county records. My bother said I can be put on the title but I don't know where to start.
If you are implying that there may have been some type of fraud in removing the mother's name and adding the brother's name to the title, then that needs to be looked into and corrected if necessary first before participating in the brother's willingness to add another name to the...View More
Sibling is lying to the lawyer saying she is making it possible for me to go into the house. This is not true. My siblings have made it impossible for me to go into the house. My daughter is also interested in purchasing the home PR will not respond to request
He was retired. His employer confirmed his ex is not listed as beneficiary and that his next of kin need to waive their rights to it for her to get it. She insists she was at one time, but assumes the employer messed up and failed to enter her name into the system. His next of kin are 2 sisters... View More
It isn't clear from your question the time frame of the events you describe. Generally you have to go through the same process each time you receive an inheritance but this may not be the case depending on the timing and the specific facts of your case.
The Statute states An order terminating the parent-juvenile relationship shall divest the parent and juvenile of all legal rights, privileges, duties, and obligations with respect to each other and the parents shall have no rights of inheritance with respect to such juvenile
If a parent's parental rights are terminated, it generally ends the legal relationship. Thus, the statutes of inheritance among parent-child are also generally severed. Thus, if the parent dies without a will, then the child isn't likely to inherit as a "child" of the parent...View More
