I have a few problems that I NEED some advice so, My mother passed away 06 of 2013 and my four brothers and sisters all knew that our mother wanted me to be the head of her estate. The Lawyer that I chose to HELP me open and close her estate has n...
The county court clerk's office can tell you the status of the case. Also, you can look it up online on www.doxpop.com but will need a credit card to run a search. 2 years is a long time for an estate in Indiana these days. As for your brother's guardianship, there should be an adult protective services prosecutor that can help you find the assistance your brother needs. Here is the area map that shows the contact for each office. That should be "free" to you. http://www.in.gov/fssa/files/APS_Unit_Map.pdfSee question
I moved into an apartment 2 years ago pay security deposit plus first month rent my apartment caught on fire so I had to move into another apartment same complex until they remodel the one that caught on fire
I would argue that you should not have to. This is likely a "landlord" policy or, perhaps more likely, an apartment property manager that is simply following a "form" process that they follow for any rental. The law has no such requirement (nor does the law say "you don't have to"), so this is really probably arbitrary. I would push back.See question
I was wondering on my quitclaim deed, I am signing property over to my ex-husband. My name has been changed legally back to my maiden name.
Often you can have deed prepared as "Mary Jones f/k/a Mary Smith". The f/k/a stands for "formerly known as" and would be whatever name the deed reflects.See question
My boyfriend of 5 years continues to pay half of the mortgage on his old home where his wife was living with accordance to his divorce decree. She elected to move out of the home and into a new boyfriend's residence a few years ago. The house ha...
He needs to proceed in the divorce action to get the judge to address this. The decree is not binding on the bank that holds the mortgage and paying 1/2 will only delay foreclosure for so long. Eventually the bank will proceed against both of them and the decree won't help him in the foreclosure. The proper action is to file a contempt citation in the dissolution and ask the judge to provide direction on disposition of the home, as well as for his ex to contribute to the costs he has incurred.See question
I am in I'll health and I don't have a will. I want to make sure she gets the home and property.
I suggest you make a will. The cost is minimal and you can accomplish your goals and preserve the property by naming a trustee to handle the child's property until she is old enough to competently do so.See question
The employer has now moved to Florida.
File a wage claim with the state of Indiana (Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division). Let your tax dollars fix this. the answer will depend to an extent on how the sale was effectuated. If the buyer bought the 'entity' the new person may be liable.See question
landlord selling house and i have a 1 yr lease with him and he is basically telling us that once he gets a buyer than he we would have to move out.
Barring something in the lease to the contrary, he can sell the house. typically the buyer would be required to honor the lease (assuming its in writing and you're not in default)See question
Due to the weather and some other factors, I anticipate being about 6 weeks late in paying off my loan. What is the amount of time I can delay the payment, before they come and get my tractor?
It depends on the terms of the written agreement, but often the answer is "yes". They don't necessarily have any time period (again, look at your contract) before they can do so. The best bet is to contact them asap and try to get a WRITTEN agreement to change the terms and, if that can't be done, you might consider selling it back to them so that you may be able to recoup a portion of the equity.See question
My parents both agreed to let my sister come live with me in another state. I wanted to know in order to get temp. custody or guardianship over here will i need to sign papers with my parents? I would like to be able to get her medical insurance a...
You need to get a guardianship on file in the court in the county where you are living (assuming Indiana law). The process will likely require a lawyer as there are certain notice and consent provisions that will need to be met. The process otherwise is very simple and if everyone is agreeable, should be able to get done in a month or so.See question
I prepared and recorded a quit claim deed in Indiana but the deed was missing the 2 Indiana statements, "This deed was prepared by " and the statement,"I affirm, under the penalties for perjury, that I have taken reasonable care to redact each Soc...
It would appear to be valid (assuming all the other deed requirements are in place). Recording a deed is not necessary to make the transfer valid, it is so that other people are put on notice of the transfer. The recorder's office doesn't "validate" or warrant the quality of the transfer, just that the requirements for recordation have been met.See question
