  • My mother passed away three weeks ago and my grandmother just last week... I am the next of kin now no will, i need help

    No will... what do I need to do?

    Diane’s Answer

    Oh, bless your heart. If your grandmother and mother did not have Wills, you can file a petition for probate with the county court. Your next step is to meet with a probate attorney to discuss the details.

    Diane’s Answer

    Of course. The majority of divorces are settled out of court. But, don't do anything without first meeting with a divorce attorney so you learn all about what to expect, what is possible, what is not possible.

  • What can i do if my ex won't pay the portion of medical expenses he's supposed to pay for our child?

    our agreement clearly outlines he is to pay 1/2 all out of pocket expenses, yet he simply ignores it. what can I do??

    Diane’s Answer

    File a Motion with court to get a judgment against him, then garnish his wages. Be aware that you need to prove everything with documents: original bill, you paid the bill in full AND that you provided him with notice of amount right after it was incurred. Meet with attorney once to get your ducks in a row. Good luck.

    If house is titled in the name of "lost" brother, you will need his signature to get his name off the title. Check with a probate attorney who also does real estate.
