I live in New Hampshire and was just told by my probate lawyer that since my name is not on the home with the mortgage that I either need to pay the loan in full or get some type of financing as the Due on Sale clause will take effect. I was told by the bank that has the mortgage that I could just... Read more »

Some facts are missing. There are federal laws that prohibit acceleration of home loans under certain circumstances when a borrower dies. There are not enough facts here to definitively determine whether your facts fit within those exceptions to the due on sale clause. But if the bank has no... Read more »
I inherited a home with a mortgage from my mom. My name is not on the house can I continue the mortgage payments as is as I am now the successor of interest or do I have to pay the whole mortgage up front before closing.
answered on Dec 3, 2021
You may keep making the mortgage payments, yes. Federal law prohibits acceleration of the loan on the grounds of the death of the decedent and transfer to a child.
You do need to notify the lender of the death of their borrower and your status as "successor in interest" so they... Read more »

I think I understand your question to mean you were convicted in New Hampshire for a violation on 1/7/19 with a one year good behavior period. You want to get that conviction annulled but in August of 2019 you were arrested for a different charge in New York. I assume that charge is still pending?... Read more »

answered on Jun 12, 2020
It depends. If you finished probation successfully and the case was closed it doesn't seem like there is anything that can be done. If it was left as a collections case only, they may be able to issue a warrant. I would suggest contacting the court and find out if there is a warrant and if... Read more »

You have a few options here. The first option is to do nothing. It is quite common for an individual to "go by" his or her middle name or a nickname his or her entire life. Just accept the new id with your name as shown on your birth certificate. Your friends can still address you by... Read more »
My wife had dementia when she cancelled her disability policy

A New Hampshire attorney could advise best on this, as insurance coverage is generally governed by state specific-elements. But your question remains open for two weeks. The problem with such a legally broad term is that it could be defined in more than one way, depending on the statute and... Read more »

This isn't really a matter of 'opinion' ... if there are assets that are in your father's name alone at the time he died, then probate is necessary. If a LAWSUIT in which the estate had an interest is ripe (wrongful death, etc.) then probate is necessary.
If there are... Read more »

Here's some more information about dying "intestate" (without a will).
