My great aunt is a homestead widower of property her husband left her. I'm not sure if it's still in my uncle's name, he's been dead over 40 years. She is 75 yrs and has 3 grown children. The daughter(30's) has mental illness, but is married and ...
This is a difficult situation because if you get too involved the other children may have a cause of action to throw out a will or transfer due to undue influence. If your mother wants to transfer her property, then she should get an estate planning attorney to decide if she can or should transfer her property while she is still living or write a will.
To sign a will legally, she does need capacity - meaning she must know what her property is and understand that she is granting it to another person via will. In addition, you probably do NOT want to be a witness of a will signing.See question
A sub-contractor worked on our property for 1 day per a contract with the general. However, the sub-contractor didn't do a good job and was kicked off the project by the general and apparently wasn't paid by the general. A couple weeks later the s...
Typically you would sue as a third party beneficiary of the contract between your contractor and sub-contractor. Since the amount in controversy is very low, you would most likely need to file in small claims court - where you and the sub contractor would appear without counsel or attorneys.See question
25 year old loan school closed and credits non transferable dept of education said I could file a lawsuite
I agree your question is disjointed and its not very specific as to what you are asking. If you received a school loan and the credits are no longer valid, there may be methods by which you can discharge the loans. If you are seeking to sue the school - then it would be very difficult to sue a closed school.See question
i've had a judgment filed against me for over 3000 and that amount was frozen in my checking account? I lost income and have not been able to pay creditors.
Its difficult to understand your question as it is not written in complete sentences. However a motion to vacate a judgment is asking the court to set aside a judgment for some stated reason. Meaning that the filer wants to undo an order that has already been granted.See question
My husband died. The hospital collected from his insurance. They want me to pay the copay. I never signed anything. My husband had no estate. I made the money. Am I liable to pay what they billed his estate for?
I agree that you m ay be liable for the debts in this case based on the law cited in Colorado. You may be able to negotiate a smaller amount with the hospital, or potentially file for bankruptcy if your situation calls for it. A review with a local bankruptcy attorney would be a wise use of time. Many offer free consultations.See question

You do not have to sign for service of process. You must respond to the complaint within the time frame set in your state, which is usually 21 days in most jurisdictions.
Alternatively, you could also file for bankruptcy. If you are low income, you can potentially get the filing fees waived and could find a low-bono or pro-bono attorney through your county bar association.See question

I am a single mother of two I live alone, and I live in texas. I owe $60.000.00 in student loans to the federal gov. I want to leave my home to my kids. If I died, can the lenders repossess the house to collect their money?
While they cannot repossess your home, they do fall under creditors for the purpose of an estate. On notice your estate must pay back the debts which you owed before being distributed to your beneficiaries. The best way to get around this would be to make a transfer before you pass away.
There are a few ways to do this, including joint tenancy with right of survivorship, but you want to do so sooner than later to reduce the appearance of fraudulent transfers.See question
general question about property and secured debt "tool box" from a major tool supplier that shall remain unnamed for now
There is no hard and fast rule for time limits for recovering secured property generally. In most circumstances the issue would be whether the secured creditor has abandoned the property. This is not a bright line test and takes into considerations such as (but no limited to) value of the property, circumstances under which the property is being held or hidden, opportunity for the creditor to collect the item, and so on.See question
