  • How can I change the "Agent" on my General Durable Power of Attorney?

    My present Agent is moving out of state. Would like to appoint my daughter as Agent. Can I just make a codicil to make the change?

    Evan’s Answer

    Go to the lawyer who drafted it and ask him to draft a new POA. If you did not use a lawyer, then the power of attorney you have is most likely not worth the paper it is written on, so go to an attorney and get a new power of attorney naming the person you now want to name.

    What you seem to be describing is a healthcare whistleblower case. This is a very specialized area of the law. We are not supposed to give referrals to specific attorneys in this forum, but there is only one attorney in the area that I know who handles these types of cases. His name is Jeff Downey, and his phone number is 703-564-7318. Please tell him I referred you. There may be other attorneys that handle this area of law that I just do not know. If so, what you need to search for "is healthcare whistleblower lawyer."

  • I am dating a guy that is married to his first wife who is in the nursing home, he married another woman in Honduras.

    He claims he is no longer with any of them. What should i do?

    Evan’s Answer

    First understand that if what he says is true, you're dating a criminal. His crime is bigamy -- marrying someone while still married to another. Other than that I agree with Mr. Hahn that you have not posed a legal question.

  • How do I calculate the executor fee of an estate? Do I calculate it after I pay out all debts and disbursements or before?

    I am the executor of my father's estate. It is pretty cut and dry. I'm not sure when I calculate the executor fee.

    Evan’s Answer

    Mr. Hart is correct. Talk to the Commissioner of Accounts and get approval before you take your fee. That way you're covered.

  • If I challenge the Executor-ship of my Dad's estate, must everything go to Probate?

    Our Dad perished a few months ago. Beneficiaries are me and my brother, who is Executor of Dad's estate, & prior POA. Our father's Will was simple, stating that we share his cash assets equally. At his death, Dad held a rollover IRA, and a house w...

    Evan’s Answer

    Why would you challenge your brother's role as executor when your concerns are about money he allegedly spent while acting as agent under power of attorney? What you need to do is challenges his actions as agent and under power of attorney, and there is a Virginia statute that allows you to do just that. Contact a Virginia probate litigation attorney immediately, and be prepared to bring whatever proof you may have of the alleged wrongdoings.

  • What do I need to do as the executor of an estate that has no funds to pay creditors.

    My mother passed away and her estate has no funds for paying creditors. Her house has a reverse mortgage, her will states that all her possessions go in equal shares to her children.

    Evan’s Answer

    Do not do ANYTHING without first consulting with a probate attorney. As Mr. Hart said, do NOT go to court. You need experienced guidance before you do anything. Just because your mom's will may nominate you as Executor does not mean you are the Executor. Only the court can appoint you as the Executor and hopefully you have not already had this done.
