    If he is receiving SS disability, the lawsuit settlement will not affect his benefits. Only his disability and his ability to work can affect his benefits. You don't need to report unearned income to Social Security. Good luck. I hope this helps. If you think this post was helpful, please check the thumbs up (helpful) tab below. Thank you!

    If an IRA has a beneficiary listed, the funds are not part of probate and need not be listed on a probate inventory. Without more facts, it is impossible to know whether the beneficiary change form was properly completed. You may want to consult a lawyer in your area. Good luck. I hope this helps.

    I'm sorry for your loss. There are procedures in probate laws for taking care of creditors. If there aren't enough assets to satisfy the creditors' claims, property will have to be sold and there is a priority schedule in state law as to which creditors get paid first. In a situation where there is an insolvent estate, the creditors will end up getting less than they are owed. You should consult with a probate lawyer in the area where your brother lived. Good luck. If you found this...

    You should check with a Connecticut lawyer (assuming that is where your mother lives). Most, if not all, states, have statutes dealing with what happens if a couple divorces. Since Jane was not your brother's wife when he died, depending on the law in your mother's state, that may nullify the bequest in her will. Again, you need to check with a lawyer in your mother's state. Good luck.

    Whoever will be handling his estate should consult with a lawyer in that area. Generally, his wife would be responsible for their joint debts and her current expenses. Each state has a law that sets out who gets what percentage of assets when someone dies without a will. Dying without a will is called dying intestate. The lawyer can give your stepmother an idea of what bills she might be responsible for. The only assets that would be part of the probate would be things that were your...

    You should contact an experienced probate lawyer in your area. Each state has laws, called intestacy laws, that determine how the property of a person who dies without a will gets divided. The stepmother is entitled to some part of it and the children are probably entitled to some part of their father's assets as well. Who gets what portion depends on your state's laws. Check with a lawyer. This is not an area where you should try to do it yourself. Good luck.

    What was your agreement with the attorney? Was there a written legal services agreement? How much did you expect to pay? It is difficult to answer your question without more information.

    You should consult with a lawyer in the area where the family member lived. It would depend on the laws of that state. Generally, unless the will provided for such a penalty, it would not be likely that one would be applied. If you think this post was helpful, please check the thumbs up (helpful) tab below.
