Q: Can my wife become a U.S. citizen if she was convicted of a drug possesion charge before we were married 10 years ago?

She was convicted in Japan. I’m a U.S. citizen. The charge was she tested positive for marijuana and exctasy on a urine test which is considered possession in Japan.

Stephen Arnold Black answered on Aug 14, 2019

This may pose a challenge but the good news is she may qualify for a waiver of inadmissibility if the drug possession was simple and was a one time thing. Discuss with counsel. Counsel anywhere in the USA can represent you.

Q: Is living trust outdated after 3 years?

Stone Law Office advertised on RJ on August 11, 2019 as "why your living trust may be outdated if it's more than 3 years old." Is this true?

Nina Whitehurst answered on Aug 11, 2019

It is true in some cases and not others. That is why they wrote "maybe" instead of "is". Estate plans should be reviewed every few years for possible changes needed due to changes in laws and also every time a significant change occurs within the family or the field of beneficiaries, such as...

William Jaksa answered on Jul 21, 2019

It could be both, none, or just the instigator. You are allowed to use force to protect yourself during an assault or to prevent an assault, BUT you must be able to justify the force you used. So, for example, you can lay hands on a person first IF it is to protect yourself from an anticipated... Read more »

Although your father disinherited his 'heirs', did he name any beneficiary(s) in his Will? If he named beneficiaries, then the funds from the IRA should go to them through the Probate process.

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Nevada on

Q: what do I do if the other persons insurance doesn’t help me get a new car after a total loss when they’re at fault?

My car was only 4 months old, a 2019 Honda Civic with only 3400 miles on it

The other person was at fault and the insurance has admitted they’re at fault

I have gap insurance but I’ll be left without a car

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jul 11, 2019

What you do is that you thank yourself for having gap. If you were hurt in the wreck you have an injury claim and should pursue it--contact a member of the Nv. Assn for Justice in the county where it happened--they give free consults.

Jonathan Craig Reed answered on Jul 9, 2019

Probably the Clark County Coroner has secured the condo to give the estate a reasonable time to remove personal possessions and look for things like bank statements and safety deposit keys.

Q: Does a deed upon death created in 2016 supersede a will created in 2012?

Deed upon death leaves property to myself and my sister as JT. Will leaves property to my sister only unless she sells it, at which time the proceeds go to the 5 heirs as stated in the will.

Delwyn E. Webber answered on Jul 8, 2019

Firstly, sorry for your loss.

The Deed Upon Death prevails over the Will, so once you and your sister sign and file the appropriate Affidavit with the Recorder, the property will be transferred to you and her as Joint Tenants.

Mike Branum answered on Jul 7, 2019

The agreement is likely worth less than the value of the paper upon which it was printed (or written in crayon - it does not sound like a very well thought out document). I would still be extremely careful in the way in which your son separates himself from this less than sophisticated landlord. I... Read more »
