Trying to get my brother's medical & hospital records in passed in the state of Boston MA
Your question is not really very clear at all. Try to restate it. You may need an attorney who handles probate and estate administration matters to assist you.See question
My brother is appointed executor of my parents will. He claims I owe money to the estate for checks written to me over the years as gifts. It is not stated in the will I owe this money.
I agree with Mr. Haber. I've litigated cases such as this in the past. Money from parents to a child, and inter-family transfers like this are assumed to be gifts. The burden is on him to prove the loan. Some of the ways to prove this: notation on check, promissory note, mention in will.See question
Can an estranged (not divorced) husband be appointed administrator of a wife's estate if the husbands parents have power of attorney of the husband? My sister passed away without a will. Her estranged husband (technically they were not divorced ...
I agree for the most part with the other attorneys, however, I will add that it is possible (this is possibly very slim) that the parents could claim abandonment if the facts support it. I've never seen it myself...See question
I'm a father of 2 and get my kids every weekend sat-sun. It's not a lot but I work long days during the week and my ex has her mom to care for the kids when she works and I have no one. Anyway we are both remarried but neither of us are wealthy. M...
Am not clear if you have a court order regarding custody and property that speaks to the claim of dependents. If you have such an order specifying who gets to take the dependents/when then you must follow it. If you seek a change to the order (or to have one put in place) you should contact a family law attorney. If you do not have an order specifying this then you have to follow IRS rules. See link.
My husband and I moved from NY to Virginia in June 2016 and will move again to China in June 2017. As such, we are only temporarily in Virginia. I understand that we need to maintain a legal residence in the US while we are posted overseas. Once w...
No, you would use your current address.See question
I have this friend that says her parents have left her an inhertance....she said her, but she is worried that other family members can get it.
Need more info - if the will gives all to her it should all go to her (this would also apply if she is the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan). If others are designated beneficiaries or if there are other siblings and there is no will, she may have to share it.See question
do you need a witness to sign the will. i didnt see a lawyers name on the will either. and my mil died 13 days after the will was written from COPD. her memory was fading towards the end of the disease. no witness signed the will only my mil. jus...
As Ms. Stewart indicates it is not required - however it is not typical that a proper will lacks witnesses and a "self proving affidavit". The facts you state indicate there could be capacity issues but those are often very hard to prove. I am guessing you may be taking issue with the contents of the will - if so you need your own lawyer (or your husband does?) regarding any challenges you wish to attempt.See question
My brother want to give me his full ownership to me a gift and what step do i have to do?
You don't say what he is giving you. Your brother should hire a lawyer to advise him. If he is giving you cash or something like a stock that is one thing and if he is giving you real estate that is another. Real estate can be given to you by deed. Any of these actions has consequences (possible gift implications or capital gain issues) so you each need appropriate legal advice.See question
I have asked my estranged sister if I can see this and she has refused the will has been probated and I received an amount i believe is far too low for the selling of the house ,and being split 5 ways. I just wanted to see receipts etc and she ref...
Did you already cash the check? Did you sign a release? If so you're probably facing an uphill battle. If not, every probate court has a process for demand of an accounting that will show you the transactions (the executor has to show what came in and what went out in terms of expenses/distributions to beneficiaries).See question
A family member died & left a VERY large estate (out of state) to my elderly Mom, I was POA of mom. My Brother sweet talked our Mom to make him new POA. My Brother was incompetent at the time, (recent major brain surgery, heavy over medicating obi...
There are way too many facts here to get a good answer in this forum. I will say that interested parties (you appear to be one) may request an accounting from any fiduciary (such as an agent under a POA, executor, trustee). If you have objections to items on an accounting they can be raised before the court.See question
