Q. does revocable trust need to be witness in California
A: A trust does not need to be witnessed to be official. The witness requirement applies to wills and healthcare powers. A quitclaim deed is fine. There is nothing easier. More problematic is the Preliminary Change in Ownership Report (PCOR). This document is required to file the deed in the county where the property resides. The PCOR, when filled out correctly, alerts the property tax folks that there is not a taxable event.

Q. Dad passed living out of state. Assets in OH, I'm the only child & live out of state, what do I do? Will not found.
A: The probate is best started in the county in Ohio where your father resided. The Ohio courts will have "jurisdiction" over the house. If the original will cannot be found, courts presume that the will was destroyed intentionally by the testator. You can proceed with an probate using intestate succession. If your father was not married at the time of his passing, most states have rules that state that the next to receive are the children. But, get an Ohio attorney to get everything moving for you. Your question got posted in Washington. The dual licensed attorney for Washington and Ohio is quite rare. So mostly, you are going to get an answer that says, "contact an Ohio attorney."

Q. I am living in our RV which is registered in wife's name. do I have legal right to keep as my residence?
A: Oregon is an equitable division state, which means that a judge can order whatever is fair under the circumstances of the marital relationship. Generally speaking, it's best to think of everything starting at a 50/50 point of view, before the marital assets are split. People often only get a judge involved after the asset division is solve together, either through mediation, mutual agreement, or attorney negotiations. When the issues of a dissolution are solved in advance, the court generally accepts the paperwork, in the form of a Stipulated Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. But as a simple example of an equitable division, if the RV is worth $10,000, then your wife is going to get $10,000 in the form of some other asset attributable to the marriage. That's the general starting point of fair. Of course, you'll find attorneys that want to fight. But do realize that judges are reasonable people. It's hard to pull over a non-50/50 argument with a judge, unless you really have some facts that support a disproportionate division.
