My grandmother passed away in March. Both the executors in the will backed out. My brother and I are the only beneficiaries. Some of her money is in stocks. She did not own a home at her time of death. What kind of attorney do I need to carry out ...
I'm sorry for your loss. You should consult a probate or estate attorney for assistance. Depending on the nature and estent of her assets, an estate must be opened and the attorney will be able to advise you as to the kind of estate that is appropriate. Good luck.See question
The cable and phone is still in my mother's aunt's name and Comcast is making it hard for her to make changes since she can't produce the death certificate (her aunt's daughter has one left and won't provide it). Also, there is a scam that was rec...
You can obtain a death certificate from the state or county where your mother's aunt lived. If your mother is living in the house, she is responsible for utilities from the date she moved into the house. Aunt's estate is responsible for charges before your mother began living there. Your mother can collect for bills she has paid by filing a claim against the estate - once the estate is opened. Please consult an estate attorney.See question
My dad passed away a fee months ago. He had a stroke and he had to stay in a nursing home. His sister ended up convincing him to sign over power of attorney to her. My dad got his ssi approved so she got him a apartment with thr back pay over two ...
Did your father have a Will? Are you the only child? Was your father married at the time of his death? A Power of Attorney expires on death so your aunt should not be acting after your father's death unless she has been appointed to act by the Court. I suggest that you contact a local estate attorney to review all the relevant facts and proceed from there. Good luck.See question
I am 61 years old and considering drawing SSN after my birthday which is September 18. I am wanting to SSN plus the Canadian pension if it is legal. As stated before, I want to know if it is legal and how does it effect your taxes.
If you are entitled to the Canadian pension, it is legal. However, you need to consult a CPA who understands the treaty between Canada and the US to tell you how the pension is taxed in the US. The US has tax treaties with many countries so an international tax CPA is your best source for information.See question

Persons with Dementia should not be driving. It appears that you should apply for guardianship. Unless you have a Durable Power of Attorney you would not have the authority to tell the Village Inn about the problems. If you have a DPOA or you are appointed your dad's guardian, you can advise the Village Inn not to take the tabs for other peopleSee question

I have 2 children ages 12 and 2 I would like to set a living trust up for
I recommend that you consult an estate planning attorney to have a trust prepared. There are many technicalities that must be observed to create a trust that will stand up legally. The money you spend on setting up a trust properly will be a fraction of what it will cost your sons if you prepare your own trust and it is defective. Also, I suggest that you do not use onlline trust forms. Most are inqdequte and they must be witnessed and notarized. Most law firms will not witness and notarize documents prepared by someone who is not a member of the firm.See question
When do POA and guardianship end in TX? An unreliable family member had these documents. The ward just passed away. Does the will go into effect now? How long does guardianship last if ward dead?
A POA terminates on death. A guardian cannot act after death. A guardian must file an accounting and other documents to be disdharged as guardian and to turn any guardianship assets over to the estate of the deceased.See question
