My estranged father passed away 2 months ago and per a phone conversation between my mother (his ex-wife) and his widow, "provisions" were made for me in his will. She provided no other information and my mother did not ask for more details. I hav...
I agree with Attorney Valdes but would add if your father had no assets to probate there is no probate. If you are named on a death benefit for the military pension, if such a thing existed, you can inquire directly to the plan administration. If you know where the life insurance policies are you can also inquire directly. You can ask your step-mother or you can hire an attorney to investigate and inquire. Good luck.See question

Your mother is incorrect. You can move out of your parents house and anywhere you want once you turn 18.See question

Unlawful detainer is the way to go. Alternatively you try offering you son money to leave and change the locks behind him. Good luck.See question
HI, I KNOW THIS IS AN UNUSUAL QUESTION. MY SON HAS TEMP CUSTODY OF HIS DAUGHTER WHO WILL BE 12 YRS OLD JAN 2016; HOPEFULLY WILL GET FULL CUSTODY. MOTHER BOUGHT & PAID FOR DOG AT HUMANE SOCIETY BUT GAVE IT TO HER DAUGHTER AS A GIFT.. MOTHER KEEPS ...
I am truly sorry for your granddaughter's situation. I once sued for dog custody in a same sex couple dispute and I won a dog because it was determined to be a gift. That being said, I don't think children can own property. But you may get a judge who thinks differently. However, lawyers are very expensive, and that's an hourly billing case. I foresee it costing thousands of dollars, not necessarily worth it, unless you have this much money for this issue. Then, if you win, and you won't necessarily win, how do you gain possesion of the dog? Could be very difficult, and not necessarily happen. My strong suggestion is you take your granddaughter and let her pick out a new dog, of her own choosing. I know it's not the same but it's the best solution I can come up with. Good luck.See question

If the attorney signed the contempt motion your ex is still being reprsented by the attorney. If your ex signed the motion his/herself then he/she is self-represented.See question
My attorney is to be paid first, but in reading florida law, I see that personal representatives are to receive a fee as well. How is this determined?
Florida Statute 733.707 states the order of creditor's claims to be paid. http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0700-0799/0733/Sections/0733.707.html I would respectfully suggest your attorney gets paid first beause he/she will not work if they don't.See question
My ex in laws have filed a law suit against me personally and as personal representative, can I use the estate funds to pay for my attorney in this matter?
Ask your probate attorney. If the Estate is being sued I would think you can use estate funds to pay to defend the estate.See question
My probate estate has been open since April 2014, we are trying to close but creditors are objecting. There is no money left and now my attorney says he is charging me out of Pocket because he is representing me personally... How is this possible?
I don't know the answer to yours question without reviewing the estate and your retainer agreement. Read your retainer agreement. Ask for a copy if you don't have it. I require payment for estates either in full at the beginning or, alternativelly, by the time the inventory is filed so this never happens.See question
My brother was the executor of the estate, he told me time was up to settle the estate.
I agree with Attorney Goldman. If you believe there are assets to which you are entitled, and you can't get your brother's attorney to talk to you, I strongly suggest you consult with your own attorney so he/she can explain the process to you and help you get your money if need be.See question

No, your signed acknowledgment does not establish paternity. A court order establishes paternity.See question
