Kathryn Hilbush's answer You might want to try again with this question, giving just a bit more information. Are you asking how long you have to wait before you receive something you inherited? That would depend on quite a few factors, such as what it is, is it being divided among other heirs, is it in a form that would allow it to be transferred to you, is the estate settled, and so on.
Cary B. Hall's answer You may have to sue your mother in civil court -- although if she has no money in which to satisfy any civil judgment against her, all you'll be left with is the judgment paper itself at the end of the day. Perhaps she'd be willing to enter into some kind of repayment plan?
Cary B. Hall's answer Highly doubtful. If you were to receive any portion of his pension, that would've been accomplished during your divorce proceedings -- and by something known as a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO, pronounced "quad-dro" by family law practitioners). If that wasn't done then, you most likely can't do anything about it now.
You should be able to get a copy of your divorce decree and any property settlement agreement ratified by the court. Contact the Prothonotary's Office of...
Cary B. Hall's answer Do talk to your P.O. -- he'll know what your local jurisdiction can do (and not do) about you moving away and/or transferring your probation to New York. I think you'll have little chance to terminate your probation early at this point, however. Maybe serve a year of your probation first, and then have an attorney contact the District Attorney's Office for you to inquire about early termination.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer It's really not possible o give you much help online. I suggest that you meet with an estate and probate attorney in your area and explain the situation. The attorney should know what steps you should take.
Mark Scoblionko's answer You need a lawyer to examine the trust instrument and help you. If there is no court order associated with the trust, in all likelihood, you simply need a letter "to whom it may concern," indicating that immediately resign as trustee in favor of your names siblings. You should have your signature on the letter notarized.
Cary B. Hall's answer It depends on what your underlying criminal charges are. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney to further discuss -- feel free to contact me offsite if you like.
Honestly, the safest bet is to wait until you've completed ARD and had your record expunged -- but depending on the underlying criminal offense, you may not need to. Again, talk to a criminal defense attorney with a good working knowledge of the Pennsylvania firearm laws. Best of luck to you.
I believe you are referencing Rev-1500, the Pennsylvania Inheritance Tax Return ... they are funds that are paid from the Estate to the applicable person ...
... Good luck ...

Kathryn Hilbush's answer It depends on whether the divorce decree reserved equitable distribution (property division) or not. If it did, then that part of the divorce is probably still unresolved. If it did not, then everyone could have a problem. I suggest that you meet with an attorney preferably with both family and estate law experiniece. Bring along copies of as many of the divorce documents as you can get your hands on, including the divorce decree.
Mark Scoblionko's answer If the property was jointly owned by the two parents, the property passes to husband on death of wife and then to the husband's children. If the property was owned as tenants in common, when the wife dies, the husband would get a statutory share (1/3) of her half and the remainder would go to her children. Any share passing to the husband, plus what he already owned, would pass to his children on death.
You should consult with a lawyer for an interpretation of the deed.
Dawn Padanyi's answer The deceased estate is responsible for the debt. Debt does not transfer to family members, unless the debt was in some way joint or the family member co-signed on the debt. If the family member is being contacted by debt collectors, she can contact the Attorney General's Office for assistance.
