I have attempted to call customers and contact customers, property varies having sat for 60 days to over a year. It's currently taking up space that we could be using for other purpose and most customers do not provide any address, only a phone number and name as we're a small town shop.

Although this is frustrating for you and people should be more considerate about your limited space, you could look... Read more »

Much more information is needed to give you any advice on this. For the best results you should schedule an appointment with a probate lawyer in the vicinity of where the probate of your mother's estate is being handled.

Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Oct 12, 2019

Look at summary judgment in terms of what it means, and you'll realize on its face that it is a decision not to be taken lightly. When a party files a motion for summary judgment, they ask the court to reach a conclusion about the issue without trial. Under Rule 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil... Read more »

Q: Can the executor remove a beneficiary from the trust? Is he required to notice the beneficiary? Thank you
Nina Whitehurst
Nina Whitehurst answered on Oct 2, 2019

A trust becomes irrevocable upon the death of the settlor and, furthermore, the executor only administers the probate estate. Trust assets are not part of the probate estate. So, unless there are some pretty extraordinary circumstances that you have not mentioned, no, an executor cannot remove a... Read more »

Q: Who owns this trademark? Urban genius ??

I also have an LLC by the name of urban genius LLC registered one 3 states

Marcos Garciaacosta
Marcos Garciaacosta answered on Sep 30, 2019

As far as trademark use is concerned, the name of the company may not have an effect on it.

Typically whoever has been using it first may have some rights to it as a trademark, may be broad or limited.

Registration gives presumption of ownership, but it is rebuttable.

Insurance companies are governed by state law where they operate, so a Nevada attorney would know best the state-specific laws that might apply. However, your question remains open for three weeks.

I am sorry to hear about what your dad is going through. Sadly, your dad is going to have to hire a lawyer to help him with an eviction lawsuit. He could try calling the Sheriff to oust them as trespassers, but most Sheriffs won't do it if it "looks" like they "live" there.

Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Sep 17, 2019

This is a matter for which a probate attorney is best qualified to advise. You could repost and add Probate/Estate Planning to your categories, or you could contact a probate/estate planning attorney you find on this site, or conduct your own independent search. Good luck

My mom wants to do remove his name and do a Deed Upon Death naming me as the grantee of the house they own.

Nina Whitehurst
Nina Whitehurst answered on Sep 13, 2019

In most states a deceased trustee is removed from title by recording an Affidavit of Death of Trustee. However, that does not guarantee that your mother has the authority to do what she is proposing. The only way to determine whether she can do that would be to review the trust, and even if the... Read more »

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Sep 11, 2019

If you say that was the date and knew it was not that's one thing. If you say "on or about" that's another. If you get the year wrong then maybe use different words. Or you could actually have an attorney's in person advice. Not sure why you are doing this for a 30 year old car wreck, which may... Read more »

Q: Is it illegal to post an ad on a dating app of an ex saying this person uses drugs and lies to manipulate people.

The photo from that person’s dating profile would be used in this hypothetical. The statements are true.

Bruce Alexander Minnick
Bruce Alexander Minnick answered on Aug 24, 2019

Yes, it is illegal--at least in the sense of possibly being defamatory, which is actionable in most if not all states. However, truth is usually an absolute defense in most if not all states too. Practically speaking, no lawyer would ever advise any client to go online in a public forum to do what... Read more »
