    If the title to the property has rights of survivorship, you will simply need to record an affidavit with the death certificate. If there were no rights of survivorship, you will need to probate his portion of the property in order to transfer it.

    They can execute an affidavit explaining the loss/destruction of the original certificate(s) and then reissue the certificate(s) in order to transfer them to you. That being said, I would strongly caution you that purchasing the stock of a corporation is a risky proposition, especially one that has been around for 30 years. You are potentially exposing yourself to liability for any number of things, not the least of which are taxes. Additionally, there are tax implications for both parties...

    In Ohio, you typically have two years from the date of injury to commence a lawsuit. So it appears that you have plenty of time to search and find another attorney to help you. I would suggest you use the Find a Lawyer here on Avvo or contact the Cuyahoga Bar Association for a referral.

    Get with a probate attorney as soon as you can. He/she can help you transfer things and it will be fairly simple so long as he did not disinheret you in his will or, if he died without a will, has no minor children from a prior relationship.

    I agree that putting things regarding burial in your will is fairly pointless. And the answer to your question is yes. If there is no money to buy a casket, plot, etc. then it will not be done. There is a form you can fill out and file with your county recorder's office that describes your funeral arrangements. However, funeral homes are businesses and they typically don't provide charitable burials. That being said, if you want to be buried in a certain way, make sure your loved ones know...

    Ask the attorney if he is going to file the will for record. Typically, even if there are no probate assets, attorneys will file the will for record only to ensure that creditor claims expire.

  7. Does the executor of an estate account to anyone for where the money went?

    The executor is required to file inventories and reports of distributions. So the probate court record should have what you are looking for. However, if those accounts were jointly held with your sister or payable on death, the accounts would pay directly to her without any need to probate. If you can't find anything yourself, a lawyer should be able to help you.

    A will would be great. However, as a surviving spouse you will have rights if he passes away. Ohio law will give you some rights in the home if you choose to elect the house as part of your share. However, there may be issues since he is the only one on the loan. This is worth talking with an attorney about in your area. Use the Avvo "Find a Lawyer" function or contact the Lorain County Bar Association for a referral.

  9. I am in a one year lease that states after one year paid, I can rent month to month. I am moving out and my sister is moving in.

    The default under Ohio law after the termination of a year lease is month-to-month. This month-to-month lease can be terminated by EITHER party with 30 days notice to the other. So what the landlord is saying here is that (essentially) it will provide the notice to terminate the month-to-month tenancy at the end of the lease unless a new lease is signed. Additionally, unless you have the right to sublet or assign in your lease without the consent of the landlord (both of which are doubtful),...

  10. If my husband and I get divorced and all of the loans are in his name, am I responsible for any of them?

    Your assets and debts will be accounted for between the two of you if you get divorced. Depending on the character, timing, and use of the loans you could be responsible for them, but if you did not co-sign it is unlikely that the lender will be able to go after you personally. Your divorce attorney will be able to help you with this analysis.
