i concur with Attorney Lawrence. Your wife needs to sit down with her mother (if she is medically competent) and discuss her Mom's estate planning. Urge "Mom" to sit down with an Estate Planning attorney to ensure HER wishes as to beneficiaries is fulfilled.See question
I am the trustee. My parents died and have a deeded time share in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada. The property is going to be transferred to my sister and the title company will want copies recorded with this county. I can't locate a Certific...
My friend & colleague Kirk is correct. The Certificate of Incumbency satisfies this checkpoint but be sure to include the property description, the assessor's parcel number etc. and be sure to record the death certificate as well.See question
I am in the process of purchasing a new home and wondering whether to make a TOD deed or put it in my living trust.
I believe the Living Trust provides better flexibility. With a TOD deed, there is no choice but to transfer the property at death to the person designated -- no matter what circumstances arise. With the Living Trust you have flexibility in terms of the pre-designated Successor Trustees who survive you AND as to the beneficiary designations, so that if a preferred beneficiary is deceased or is in a coma or is in a nursing home subject to Medicaid reimbursement, the Successor Trustee can transfer the property to beneficiaries who are better situated. Congratulations on your new home and for 'thinking ahead'.See question

As a beneficiary suffering from a spiteful and untrustworthy executor, I want to get an accounting of the estate that will benefit a whole class of beneficiaries. I have read that this is called a "fund in court" and that it is settled practice t...
I'm a bit confused by the wording of your question. Have your attorney file a Motion asking for a complete fiduciary accounting and if necessary file a motion asking the court to relieve the executor and appoint a new one. See 'Find-A-Lawyer' on this website. Good Luck.See question
The trust was to be transferred to me on my 21st birthday a month ago and nothing has been done even though she (the trustee) keeps telling me the paper work has been filed with the courts and she told me the courts needed more information, but wh...
Retain an Estate Planning attorney. File a motion seeking a Court order appropriate to the case. Act without waiting for the Trustee. You are now an adult and you should have your attorney enforce your rights. Good Luck on getting this resolved.See question
