    You should sit down with a lawyer and review the facts. If no corporate entity was formed then you effectively created and partnership and are entitled to 50% of any sales proceeds, even without a written partnership agreement. Additionally (or alternatively), you might be able to argue that it was your friend's business and you're entitled to back pay, etc.! This will all be dependent on the facts. Remember, however, that there are time limits to your rights to recover from your business...

    Look in the Trust document for a section that reserves to you the power to revoke or modify the trust and/or transfer assets. Most likely that right exists and you can make the transfers without the help of an attorney. But don't do it without *contacting* an attorney. Ask an estate planning lawyer to review your trust and ask how to transfer the property. They will most likely say that the trust does reserve that power for you, and that you can transfer assets to your own name by deed (the...

  3. If a person only has one child and her name is on bank accounts as POD, and there are two homes, is a trust still necessary?

    The only way to transfer the homes to your child without a trust (and avoid probate) is to place her name on title as a joint tenant. On the parent's death, the child would record an "Affidavit - Death of Joint Tenant" with the proper County Recorder to clear the title. However, there are drawbacks to doing this type of self-help estate planning. The first is that your child would be a co-owner of the house. There are two obvious problems with this. A: Her creditors could go after the...

  4. How do we dissolve our dad's trust with a house in it, put 1/4 of the house in each of our trusts, & form a co-tenancy agreement

    I agree with Mr. Weissler that you would be well advised to consider placing the property into a separate entity such as an LLC if you are going to be using it to generate income as a rental property. This is to protect your individual assets from liability arising out of the property. Then transfer your LLC membership interest to your own trusts. If you do not place the property into an LLC, but prefer to own it directly in shares, than you will want to transfer 25% interest each to the...

  5. A former employee of mine is now engaged in a sexual relation ship with her attorney who is interfering in my contracts.

    I agree with Mr. Doland. Whether or not the lawyer's conduct is permissible representation of his client (your former employee) or whether it is tortious interference with your business relationships will depend entirely on the actual facts. Prepare a timeline of events, copies of any communications you have, and ask a local attorney to review them.

  6. I'm the administrator of my brother's estate, only asset is a house in San Francisco that is insolvent. How do I resign?

    If you are the court-ordered administrator with an open probate proceeding, you will need to petition the court for an order terminating the probate action and discharging you as administrator. I suggest you hire an attorney to review the probate and draft the petition; you don't want any lingering personal liability due to outstanding creditors or issues with other beneficiaries.

    Present a claim to the probate estate - I'm including a link to the claim form below. As to the fence... if it is a boundary fence (running along your property line) then it's presumed to be the shared responsibility of both landowners. However, if it's something you put up yourself, and its on your side of the boundary, then you can claim the entire amount of damages. You'll look for help from a real estate attorney on the fence issue, and a probate attorney on the proper claim...

  8. I think My sister took out a power of attorney on me years ago, using an unproven reason. I wish to REVoke it.

    Gary, There is no valid way they could create a power of attorney to access your accounts without your knowledge and acceptance. I would question whoever told you this to find out more information, and then consult a local estate planning attorney for assistance if it turns out to have any basis.

    Unless you are an "emancipated" minor, you can't have a legally binding will. Don't let that stop you from writing down any wishes you might have. If you are seriously ill, have a frank discussion with your parent(s). If not, I suggest you wait until you are over 18 to consider this issue in depth.

    I disagree with Ms. Koslyn on this issue. Your father has a right to a copy of the trust that he and your mother hired the attorney to draft, assuming the attorney still retains a copy in the file. The request does not have to be notarized; in fact, he should simply be able to pick up the phone and call. If the attorney is skeptical about your father's identity, then your father should go to the office himself to pick it up, even if it is difficult to get around. However, if I were you I'd...
