Legal Answers
39 Questions Answered
Q. Does SSI have to be paid back after death?
A: Mr. Popp's answer is perfect. If the Executor has not consulted with an attorney, he or she is foolish. Estate administration is much more complicated than most folks know. If you screw something up, you'll spend much more money getting it corrected.
Q. My brother died without a proper will and his assets are very small. Can we settle his small estate without a lawyer?
A: If the heirs got along, it might be possible, but with real estate involved you will need to find an Administrator on whom you can agree, who can help get the house sold, and who can play referee. One of you needs to start the process by finding an expert and experienced probate lawyer who can help you get this done.
Q. Sole owner of home passes away without a will. Daughter and son-in-law have lived there for 5 years. Whats next
A: You need to visit immediately with an expert Probate attorney. You are in a pickle now because your mother did not do this prior to her death, and it will get worse if you do not get expert help.
