Most wills, and certainly 100% of those written by lawyers, contain language revoking all prior wills. So the new will, if properly written revokes the old one. And while I always advise clients to destroy all copies of the old will, the revocation is the same whether they do or do not. No one can obviously analyze the new will without seeing it, but your post makes it pretty clear that the old will probably is revoked. (A definitive answer requires looking at it).
Objections are filed in about 99% of Atlanta cases. Most are easily addressed assuming your brother doesn't waste time meeting with his lawyer. A plan with no payments will get dismissed and payments must be made as soon as a case is filed.
The person you shoud ask if your lawyer, who has been paid by you to give advice for all 60 months. Until your lawyer says otherwise, the safe answer is to keep sending payments. Any overpayment when the plan is complete will be refunded by the trustee.
I am very sorry that you lost your child. The one worst thing you can do is to talk to the insurer. They are in business to offer you as little as possible. One study showed that in general people without lawyers get 80% less than people with them. Bear in mind every statement you make will be used against you by the insurer. So get good counsel ASAP and let the attorney explore what coverages are out there (and that may also include your own).
Possibly, if the numbers work. Note that the Chapter 13 will not discharge debts but may let you catch up your bills. A downside - it may slow and complicate your settlement. Speak to your lawyer about it.
My condolences to you.
First of all, let me stress that this is not a do-it-yourself project. A lawyer is needed for probate.
Joint bank accounts do not pass under a will. They belong to the people on the accounts.
As to what happens with the will as to other assets for your deceased brother, that depends on the language of the will, which, if properly written, addresses that, and may or may not involve the grandchildren.
While you may have not been an heir, I wouldn't suggest signing until you at least looked at the will, which is a public record at the courthouse. If you're not an heir, signing probably does you no harm (but it doesn't help you either). If you were an heir, see a lawyer ASAP.
There are MANY hitches and complications. You need to see a lawyer experienced in international adoptions. In addition to the immigration issues, you must comply with the laws of Mexico. Additionally your age may be a barrier. You also have to get the consent of the father or properly terminate his rights.
Mexico is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Adoption Convention). Therefore, all adoptions...
First of all, turn it in to your insurance. Not doing so will mean that they will not defend your husband, and he will end up having to pay a lawyer. I suspect in a case where the other party is so obviously negligent that the insurance will deny the claim, but this way, you won't have an expense defending it (and if there is a valid claim, they and not your husband will pay).
Assuming that there are no recent prior bankruptcy filings, a Chapter 7 done strategically a few days before the sale stops the sale. At that point the lender can, and likely will, at some point, move to lift the stay. That hearing is usually a month or so after the motion. Once the motion is granted the lender has to re-advertise the foreclosure and start it from scratch. The effect of this is that even if you get a lender in a rush, you buy yourself at least about 3 months. Since many...
