Legal Answers
90 Questions Answered
Q. My 39 year old son finally moved out but he left all of his stuff behind. Can I legally discard all of his belongings?
A: Give him 10 days to remove it.
Q. My family moved from Nyc to North Carolina. We have a will and proxy written in NYC. Does the move invalidate our will
A: Moving does not invalidate the Will, and the addresses were to help determine who the beneficiaries are, in the event they are not known (i.e., there are 6 "Todd Smith's" that it could be - it would be the one that lived at that address at the time the Will was executed). So long as it was witnessed by two qualified witnesses and notarized, you should be fine. You can always take it to be reviewed by an estate planning attorney, just in case, though; especially, if you would now like to make some changes.
Q. My husband n I live in nc. We lgot married4/210 bought the home 7/2010 he carried mortgage he died 2018 my names notdee
A: You could file as a creditor to his estate estate, and claim that he was holding it in trust for you, pro-rated to take into account the amount you contributed.
