    You have whatever rights are designated to you in the will. If your parents' wills are valid, they are their wishes as stated in the will will be followed. There is not much either you or your siblings can do about it. If, on the other hand, either of the wills are invalidated, they would die "intestate". In that case, Virginia's laws regarding intestate transfers would be followed. You should speak to a wills & trust/estate attorney for more information.

    If you had a QDRO, that should have addressed the retirement issue. Any child support that was ordered is going to end upon his death. You need to speak with an attorney to review your divorce paperwork and any orders for child support arrears.

    This is an issue that confronts many people in Virginia when beginning to execute the divorce process. The law demands that you live separate and apart for a period of time; after filing for the divorce, you are entitled to a Pendente Lite hearing to set temporary orders regarding issues with the children, some property issues, and support. At the PL hearing, the judge is usually inclined to maintain the status quo, i.e., whoever is living in the marital home will remain, who ever is paying the...

    You would have to file a motion to have the court issue an order allowing you the additional "make-up" period. You should also be aware that a factor the court must consider when determining custody and visitation is which party is more likely to encourage and foster a relationship with the other parent. In other words, if the father continues to use the custody and visitation in retaliation, as you say, for something, he may end up losing custody or your visitation time may be increased.

    You would need to talk with an attorney in your area regarding adoption procedures. Step-parent adoptions are relatively easy; placement adoptions to boyfriends/girlfriends are more difficult.

    It depends on whether or not the trailer is considered marital property. As you describe the scenario, it would seem your husband gifted to you half of the trailer, or at least he intended to make the trailer a marital asset. If it is, then you are entitled to have that considered as part of the marital estate, to which you are entitled equitable distribution. It's up to a court to determine what value to assign to any property, and to what portion each party is entitled. Speak with a...

    Child custody cases are decided by what is in the best interest of the child. To modify an existing child custody or visitation order requires a material change in circumstances since the order was entered. As the natural parent, you are also the presumptive "best option" is any custody case. I would suggest you speak with an attorney in your area regarding your facts and circumstances. I would think that since you are the natural parent, provided the court did not find you to be "unfit"...

  9. Would the courts likely forgive interest on child support arrears if the principle was paid in a lump sum?

    The interest is added based on the statute. The court does have authority to adjust the balance under certain circumstances, but they are going to want and likely follow the recipient's wishes on abatement. If the other party is willing to accept a lump sum in satisfaction of the debt, the court will generally accept that as will DCSE. Contact an attorney in your area to help you draft the document and make the transfer of funds. Once the order is entered by the court, DCSE will close the case.

    Child custody and visitation cases are determined by what is in the best interest of the child. You may petition for a change in the present order provided there has been a material change in circumstances since the order was issued. You as the natural parent are the preferred custodian in any custody case. The issues that led to your surrendering custody appear to have been resolved. As for the relationship between you and your mother, that would be a factor, particularly if your mother is...
