    Your spouse does not automatically receive all the assets titled in your name upon your death. If you die leaving children,and no will, your spouse does not receive all of your assets through a probate. Hire a lawyer to write a will to be sure it is done correctly. If you do your own will, and you do it wrong, you won't know until you are dead, and then you can't fix it.

    Attorneys make money on your personal injury settlement. They don't make any money on your property damage claim. Many/Most of them don't get involved in the property damage aspect of the claim.

    Re-post this as a Georgia question, but in Florida the answer is no, the parents are not responsible given the facts you presented.

    There is no prohibition against an attorney taking these types of cases on a contingency fee basis; however, you would need to find such an attorney. I have taught at a seminar where another attorney spoke. He is an excellent attorney but said that he never takes a contested probate on a contingency fee basis unless he believes his contingency fee is going to be substantial. There is a lot of work involved. Good luck.

    Mediation is a settlement conference. You and your attorney attend along with the defendants (police officer, city) and their attorneys. There is a mediator who is not on either person's side. The mediator works towards settling the case. First the mediator talks, then your attorney tells his side, then the defendants tell their side. Then if your attorney wants to say something about what the other side said, he/she can, and it goes back and forth. Often the mediator separates both...

    Yes there should be a way to for her to produce them quicker. Check the document that requires you to pay half of the medical expenses. It should be in your settlement agreement, parenting plan, final judgment or other court order. See if that document contains a time frame in which she must submit the bills. If it does not, you can petition for a requirement for the bills to be submitted within a reasonable time, I suggest within 30 days, or she waives her right to reimbursement. It...

  7. Is a video will, an oral direction making a descendant an executor, and an unsigned will all considered legal in Florida?

    I agree with everything Attorney Morcroft said. It doesn't sound to me like there is a will here at all and that the woman passed away with no will. The state then makes a will for her as she is said to have died intestate (her property goes to her family). I strongly recommend one or all of her children hire an attorney to probate the woman's estate.

    After the first spouse dies the assets go to the survivor. After that they descend pursuant to the terms of the survivor's will or through intestate succession which is almost never going to include his or her step children from the deceased spouse. This is a problem that arises ALL the time. Further, even if the Wife's Will says everything to my husband and if he does not survive me then to his children, the widow has the ability to change that after her husband dies. After practicing law...

    Ultimately you are responsible for your unpaid medical bills. That's why you are pursuing a personal injury action, to take care of your bills, pain and suffering. Your attorney will likely work with your medical providers to get your bills paid, or reduced, when he/she has the money available to do that.

    I am sorry for your loss. In general, the recovery for personal injury actions is limited to the amount of available insurance. This can change if the person who caused the accident had significant assets, and not enougn insurance. This rarely happens. You can always consult with another attorney to see if he or she agrees with the prior attorney's evaluation of your case.
