The short answer is no. The house must pass through the estate administration. The executor must first ensure that your grandfather's debts, if any are addressed, that the administrative expenses of the estate are paid, and the required inheritance tax and any other tax obligations that may...Read more »
I am pregnant with my first child and ended things with the father. I asked if we could come to an agreement between the two of us vs going to courts and he is now threatening to go for custody. He cannot take care of himself, he does not support himself. He lives at home with his parents and blows... Read more »
No, you cannot file for custody until after the baby is born. You're lucky that his mother is supportive of you. She can be your greatest ally if you make sure that she sees her new grandbaby. I suggest that you consult with a local family law attorney for guidance.
Home, that I cared for for years but had to go to a nursing home and she had a reverse mortgage on the home and is now in foreclosure and so I will need to find a place to live or buy the property at forclosure? Is that my only option?
There are specific rules regarding the purchase/repayment of the reverse mortgage by a family member. If the reason for the foreclosure is that your Grandmother is in a Nursing Home the contract should have provisions that cover this situation. It could be dependent on her status and whether it...Read more »
Father-In-Law passed away in December, there is only his wife (my mother-in law) and my wife (his daughter) surviving him. My Wife is the executor. There's no mention to where it goes in will.

Without more information it is not possible to answer your question. You should contact an attorney that is experienced in collections and provide the attorney with all the details to get an answer to your questions.
To fully answer your question would require additional information because whether or not you can keep the house will depend upon a number of factors. Are there other assets which can be used to pay off the mortgage? Are there other debts beside the mortgage which must be paid? Are there other...Read more »
Until a court order is entered, the home belongs to both of you. If you lock him out, he is within his legal right to gain access. If you lock him out it may only elevate the mental abuse. If you can stay with a friend or family for a night that may be less confrontational. If he does anything to...Read more »
My sister wants me to sell the house. She wants the money. I grew up in and have lived in this house for 20 plus years. My grandparents took custody of me because my mother left me with them as a child. I don't have the money to buy her out, but I want my house.
You may or may not have left out some relevant facts but I will try to answer----if the insurance company is paying a property damage claim for the vehicle then it should pay the titled owner(s) of the vehicle.
No. After 18 you are legal adult and no one parent has any right to cancel your passport. If they persist call the police, as they have no right to conceal a legal US Passport from its holder for any reason, or go ahead and apply for a new one.
A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Some information may have been left off here. It isn't fully clear in what context the money left for you materialized, and your post straddles a number of categories - each could have different manners in...Read more »

The government is legally allowed to do anything it wants. The government has agents, it has courts, and it writes the rules. The CPS can offer drug testing several times and then clamp down by removing the kids. A failure to take a test and pass it is evidence of drug use, and drug use is...Read more »
