If its your house, then all you have to worry about are the local zoning and rent control ordinances... talk to a local attorney.See question

I agree that you should not make ANY distribution until ALL known issues are resolved. I wouldn't even make a partial distribution....See question
After many years of flying in from California to help my poor aunt, 88yrs, in Michigan out of whatever jam she had gotten into, mostly a trashy HUD apartment. I have now been appointed her emergency Guardian (temporary until the court date 3 Septe...
Pay for her funeral with the $$ and forget about the credit card debt, you don't have the $$. Medicaid will let you keep $50/month as guardian. Any expenses you had for providing personal care services will most likely be treated as a divestment and will result in a penalty period. I, too, am Christian and ex-military, and my perspective here is that if the law allows it, do it...See question

my aunt owns a house and she is trying to give the house to me. How would this process take place, are there any fees for such an operation, and if so how much?
Easy! Simple! Do it yourself! Except that you'll probably disqualify your aunt from receiving any Medicaid benefits for long term care for who knows how long based on the value of the house. What you really should do, is consult with an elder law attorney... this sort of thing often leads to wailing and gnashing of teeth when auntie goes into the nursing home, Medicaid won't pay, the nursing home sues auntie, then the nursing home accuses her of a fraudulent transfer and then they come after you! Don't do it!See question
If the children do have a right to the deceased half of the estate. How is the house that the surviving spouse lives in divided then?
Awww c'mon! AVVO doesn't let us answer questions unless our crystal balls are in tip top condition, but seriously! You've got to give us some facts, like... what does the will say? ... how is the house titled? Something!See question
There is only a small checking account in both our names.
If you were executor (which means the person probating the will) yes!
If you are joint owner of a checking account (which I think you are) no!
I'm the trustee of my late fathers estate. He has passed away 6 1/2 years ago. He had a toxic mortgage and a second mortgage line of credit. I was able to modify the 1st with a HARP modification. The line of credit for $17000 is maturing on August...
Federal law prevents mortgage lenders from calling the loan due simply because of the death of the mortgagor, but that does not modify the terms of the loan. Here, it sounds like W-F has complied with the law... they just don't want to loan the trust any money. Which they don't have to.See question

You're entitled to inherit as a child of the decedent (was he on your birth certificate)... But if the sisters were named as beneficiaries on the policy, they have no obligation to share with you. Unfortunately, promises made at funerals are pie-crust promises... easily made, easily broken...See question
If one party to a contract is a county government in Michigan, and the other is a private business operator, does the following contract violate anti-trust law? "The County agrees to Establish rental prices of its hangars such that the County w...
I don't do anti-trust, but if two private parties entered into such an agreement, I'm gonna bet that that would be a prima facie anti-trust case...See question
