Does the trustee have an attorney? Perhaps you could contact that attorney. If not, you need an Attorney to go into the probate court and have the current trustee removed or become accountable. Have you requested a copy of the trust? Is there any language in there about accounting to the boys or to you? How old are your children now? Does the home have equity? I don't know any Probate Attorneys that will work on contingency, but you certainly can try. This is an area of the law that I...
I agree with with the my colleagues on this. You have a duty to keep the floors safe possibly even if it is raining, even for women wearing high healed shoes. Was the floor slippery? Should you have warned her or thrown a rug or mat down? I would advise you to all your in surance company just in case.
First you need to look at the terms of the trust. Usually a "life estate" means that a person gets to live in the home until she dies. If she isn't dead, she would normally have no power to sell the property. If all of the beneficiaries are on board with selling the house and the widow is on board then it may be permissable. Check with a trust attorney where the home is located.
What a mess. 1. Your POA dies when the person who made you their agent dies. If you failed to protect his or her assets w/ the POA you could actually be liable to the estate. 2. How can your sister transfer deeds w/o probate? Was probate opened for your father or your mother. Is their a will? Is there a Trust? What do you mean stole assets?? Was her name on his bank accounts or your Mother's. More questions than answers. You need an Attorney
This happens often. In California the affidavit would suffice but it must be signed on behalf of all the heirs, i.e. the son and any siblings, and parents if they are alive. If they join in the affidavit or waive any interest in the vehicle in the affidavit then these documents should work for Ford or any other creditors. Best to seek assistance from an attorney in drawing up the Affidavit.
You are not entitled necessarily to see the trust from your Father, but he certainly can share it with you or direct the trustee to do so. There only needs to be one original, not requirements of any copies needs to be made. it is a good idea though, and a good idea to share w/ the family the plans of the parents unless there is discord in the family.
Since you chose not to seek legal counsel before your Mother passed away, you would now have to go to the Probate court w/ competent counsel to have her removed as the trustee. Has the estate been inventoried and distributed yet? I am sorry you had such a bad experience, but you always had options to correct, and maybe still do. Seek the advise of competent counsel immediately.
You had a right to object by going to court and having this Trustee removed. If there was only a will then they would have been an Executor as you mentioned. Was there a will and a trust?. Was there a formal probate opened? You need to consult w/ an attorney right away to protect your rights.
I recommend that you file a response to his RFO w/ a declaration of your position as well as file your own RFO asking for child support right now. There may be time enough to have them both heard at the same time. Unless its agreed to be heard at the same time by him, its a very sly way of getting to court on what he wants, not what you need as well.
A doctors note would help in getting excused for a classroom, but may not be an excuse in the courts to avoid contempt. However, if it is life threatening, and your ex still proceeds with the "contempt" action against you for violating a court order, I believe that your note and explanation, would sway a Judge to understand your situation. Its a chance, but if you need surgery, I would take the chance. Does your ex have a good reason for not allowing this indescretion, like the child won't...
