    My colleagues are correct in that fees vary among law firms, between $75 as a low to $450 high for simple type wills. You may wish to ask the attorney for an hour of his/her time first, because your question as to not notifying your husband begs the question, which leads to some time involvement for the attorney to answer correctly and to protect your interests the most via elective share planning, gift giving, debt and joint ownership, transfers of property interests or splitting joint...

    You will have to seek a conference with Probate litigation counsel since there are too many details missing from your question that will change the answer substantially. What you must discuss with him/her is: a. If the attorney(s) rendered services to the estate and the Court and were so awarded a fee payable by the estate; b. Advice on having the Court re open its matter to have Court award the PR's attorney fees and charges to be taken from the complaining beneficiary of the estate. c....

    If I understand your question, it is the receipt of monies from an Australian estate due to your parents' death. As to the implications under Australian law, you will have to check with those authorities but certainly there is a restriction and also criminal violations should cash itself over $10,000 in bills enter the U.S. instead of from an Australian bank to a bank in the U.S. to you or in your name by wire or otherwise. As to the receipt of liquid assets from another foreign country,...

    While you may not have a direct cause for a "lien" as you are referring to the same without first obtaining a monetary judgment in Florida, however you may well have an alternative remedy. Since you are referring to wages, then I will assume that you were not a "salaried" employee nor an independent contractor. Your recourse may well be to go to your own Department of Labor site at the state and perhaps county office and file a claim for past wages - this may very well fall under the Fair...

    It is tempting to only answer the direct question you pose, which could be as simple as recording a death certificate and notifying the debtors; but there are normally many other matters that arise and it would be wise to at least request a short time with an estate lawyer in your vicinity to go over a checklist of duties, assets, other matters that may be "hidden" at first, and which do not seem to control this situation. I have often noticed that there are many items that would be otherwise...

    I am a practicing Estate Attorney in Cape Coral Florida. While I agree with my colleagues and their responses to you that it most likely will not be counted, it is interesting that if you did keep what is called an "incident" of ownership or control it may be counted in your estate. But I believe you are also asking who the successor custodian might be in your place. FS 710.121 indicates that if you die before the grandchild becomes of age, then a. person who made the nomination may...

    Since my colleagues have adequately responded to your question, no more direct answer needs to be given, however one of the purposes of the statute is to reinforce the right or "access" to the courts provision in Florida, which would then permit any party that may have a cause of action to proceed to seek a remedy or justice through our Florida court system. Also another thought not directly related to this is that many people still feel it is necessary to leave something or at least $1....

    The intestacy laws of Florida are direct and the past divorce would have severed all rights you would have had to any of the properties, assets and home of your ex husband here in Florida. Assuming there is no other surviving spouse, then the his children and the kids of his deceased children if any would receive his entire homestead and assets anywhere located. However, you may have a claim in the estate for monies you contributed toward his upkeep, support and the maintenance of the home...

    Realty must go through the Summary procedure at a minimum since under $75,000 at the current time in its value, and the deceased died within the last 2 years. If died over 2 years ago, then both the creditor is out of luck unless they filed a "caveat" of record to hold their rights to file a claim when you open the estate. The place to commence the procedure is the county where the realty is located in Florida. You will have to notify the Court in a Summary that either all the creditors have...
