    The simple example is-if you put language in a will that says-Anyone that contests will shall be disinherited-it would not be a valid clause and would not be enforced.

    The question has several possible answers. If the check is paid payable to the estate-then the PR would have to distribute the proceeds to the named heirs in will after expenses are paid. It is possible to petition the court to have proceeds distributed in PI cases to spouse and heirs directly.

    The risk is great that you would make a mistake an have an invalid codicil to your will. Your best bet is to have your attorney do the document for you.

    Very sorry for your condition and circumstances. Most likely you need more than a "Living Will" and it would be best to have an estate planning attorney advise you.

    No-not true unless grandma left the house to her. If you are executor-you should have a copy of the will and should know what it says.

    Yes-it is common to have a pour over will. It is usually better to "fund" the trust. Asset from the will to the trust go through probate-assets in the trust do not go through probate.

    It all depends on what is reasonable and what the other options are. Your attorney can submit a petition for fees and expenses for court approval.

    His son would be entitled to automobiles if he was the only child and could accomplish this at the DMV without probate as exempt property. He then could transfer the automobile to you. This would not be possible if the deceased had other children without 100% consent. The best bet would be to have a probate attorney guide him throught the process with at least a consult.
