    It depends on what the trust document says. If it says 25 that's when you get it, and you can sue her if she doesn't give it to you. If it says she has discretion, then she can hold it until she thinks your life is stable. If you need help interpreting what it says, or suing her, hire a lawyer.

  2. 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.

    I would stay there as long as I possibly could. Only pay rent if you see Letters of Administration and then pay rent to the Estate of the Landlord OR if the reverse mortgage holder obtains a court order ordering you to pay rent. Otherwise, I strongly recommend you put your rent in a savings account so you have it to pay, if that's what you want to do with it, when the time comes. People may come forward stating they are inheriting the property, but do not pay them unless you know they have...

    Your new step-mother does not automatically own what your Dad owns. Attorney Scanziani is correct, if your Dad writes a new will the prior will is revoked. If your Dad adds his wife to his property then she is a co-owner. If your Dad leaves everything in place, exactly as it was prior to the marriage, your step-mother is entitled to come in and claim an elective share, unless they have a valid pre (or post) nuptial agreement where she agreed not to do that. You do not have rights to...

    I have been involved in disputes like this. I am assuming the settlement funds are still in the trust account of the attorney for the plaintiff in the wrongful death action. I believe a motion to compel apportionment needs to be filed in the wrongful death action. You need an attorney. Wrongful death actions must be brought by the Personal Representative of the Estate. The Personal Representative is often not a statutory surivivor under the Wrongful Death Act, as is the case here. It is...

    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.

    Adding a child's name to a piece of property has broad implications on inheritance, and I can't tell you exactly how much without looking at the document that transfered title. That's because there are other considerations. Was the property re-titled as joint tenants with the right of survivorship or as tenants in common? Is the child a minor? What is the name of every person on the original deed, their marital status, and who signed the document transferring title? Is the property...

    If the Estate is in Connecticut you need a Connecticut lawyer. If you believe power is being abused, hire your own attorney to protect your interests.
