Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered

Q. I have 3 kids, I live with my boyfriend who I have one child with. What do I need to do for the house to go to my kids.
A: You should make sure your boyfriend is not claiming any interest in the house. Should you get married, consider a prenuptial. To fully protect your kids you should set-up a trust and put the house on the trust. Should you pass away, your trustee can keep or sell the house for the benefit of your children until they reach certain ages and receive their share.
Q. Can a 3rd party avoid/get out of a pre-incorporated company contract? Please explain. Thanks in advance! (Business Law)
A: The answer depends on the language of the contract and if there was any consideration and what has happened to the corporation, if anything?
Q. If I put a house valued at $7.0M with a $4.0M mortgage into a bypass trust, is my heir subject to estate
A: If the bypass trust was properly set up, there will be no estate tax regardless of the value.
Q. when leaving a small fortune to a son, can one eliminate the wife from inheriting this money in case of his death?
A: The only way to make sure your son does not give his inheritance to his wife, is to keep your gift in trust for his life and then on his death to his children when they are certain ages. If you just leave your estate outright to your son, you can’t put restrictions on the gift. Depending on the size of the estate and his estate, there may be adverse tax consequences which you may need to consider.
Q. How long does the beneficiary of a life ins. policy need to survive the insured to receive benefits from them?
A: You will need to review the policy to see if there are any survivorship requirements. Usually there isn’t. Depending on the size of your mother’s estate, including the insurance proceeds, and if she owned real property, you may need to initiate a probate. Without a will, her spouse will inherit if the proceeds are community property. If separate property, spouse will share with her children. If no spouse, the children will inherit equally.
Q. Are my nieces automatically entitled to an equal share of my dads estate?
A: We would have to review the Will and correspondence between you and your sister in order to provide an opinion. We would also want to know the nature of the estate’s assets. If there is any real property that was just in the name of the decedent, there will have to be a probate.
