On what sibling get them?: My brother has been living with my mother to look after her for the past 8.5 yrs. he also helped her out a lot finacially during this time. Now she is deceased and there are Christmas ornaments and some old family pictures that he has said she wanted him to have them. Does probate have the authority to rule on such item?

Michael’s answer: The Probate Court has authority to allocate a decedent's assets pursuant to Will and the law. I don't have enough information here to guide you in any direction other than to urge you to hire a lawyer.

Is it possible to ask to serve my time after my baby is born. : My sentence date is April 4. I already took a plea for one year in Wayne county jail. I will be 27 weeks at the time of my sentencing.

Michael’s answer: Ask your lawyer to speak with your probation officer, the prosecutor, and the judge to let each know you will be asking for an adjourned date to report for sentencing. Few jails want the burden and cost of child birth, so I'd think a judge likely would grant the request - especially if the PO, prosecutor, and jail administration concur. Good luck.
