There are way too many factors here to know whether you will get charged and to give specific information about what will happen in court if you are. The prosecutors in Michigan have the discretion to charge based solely on the police report, but that is unlikely without the written statement of the victim or corroborating witnesses. If you are charged at some time, there is also discretion on whether to issue an immediate warrant for your arrest or simply call to request your appearance....
There is a misconception that it is a good way to avoid probate and get medicaid qualified. In general it is a bad idea, causing capital gains tax problems and medicaid penalties. Consult an estate planning attorney first.
The nieces and children of the nephew would get everything. It goes to his parents, then down to brothers and sisters. Then to nieces amd nephews, after which it is divided in equal shares with one share divided among survivors of deceased nephew. Cousins are out.
I agree with the other attorneys. I just wanted to state that you should not be intimidated to talk with the other attorney. He will not bite. If he will not talk, get an attorney to write a letter for you to get answers. These things can be kept very cordial, and relatively simple.
I agree with the other attorney. All of the assets need to be considerd and weighed. If the elderly individual is competent, she can revoke the POA and appoint someone else to stop the house from being sold. There are many good reasons not to sell the house, and very few reasons to sell it. See an attorney ang get the documents in order.
This is a good time for you to consult an attorney about the whole estate planning and probate process. A simple trust and a few additional documents could make your son's transition easier when you pass away. Just call around to estate planning attorneys for a few free consultations, and ask them personal questions and find someone you like to help you out that sets reasonable prices. In MI, full estate plans with trusts can range from around $1000 to over $4000 depending on the complexity...
The terms of the non-compete must be reasonable in scope and duration and be intended to protect specific knowledge or insight you gleaned from working for them. This on its face seems unreasonable, but I would need to see the contract itself. You can compete and then defend if they sue.
There are statutory requirements including notifying known creditors probate is open as well as publishing notice and waiting the statutory 120 days. All creditors that make claims must be dealt with in 63 day intervals and may sue and take longer when or if denied. It is a long process. Assets or no there are a lot of hoops. You should consult a probate attorney that understands foreclosure procedures as well.
