Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered
Q. Paypal and others asking for legal documentation or a copy of the will that identifies the executor of the estate
A: Good afternoon, you will very likely need to go to probate court. I recommend that you hire an attorney to help you with the probate process. In Texas when one one spouse dies with or without a Will, generally the other spouse will have to go to probate court. If you do not go to probate court, there will be a double probate upon your death that may cause issues for your beneficiaries. For example, I imagine your home is in your husband's name and your name. You will need to go to probate court to move the home into your name entirely if the Will dictates that you are entitled to the home.
Q. My business was subcontracted to create a survey. Can the subcontractor remove my company name from the survey?
A: I see that you are located in Albuquerque, NM but are asking a business law question for Texas. If this is a Texas legal matter, my thoughts are as follows: I recommend that you have an attorney review your original contract and all recorded conversations with the contractor. After an attorney has a chance to review the details, they will be able to let you know if their legal opinion.
Q. partner dies, what is needed on paper work so that the children don't keep getting any portion of the business.
A: If your partner has passed away, I am sorry to the hear that. I am not able to tell by your question, therefore I will provide you with two answers. 1. If your partner has died, and you have not met with an attorney or made an legally enforceable plan prior to his death for such an event, your partners portion of the business will go to probate court and be included as a part of your partner's estate. This may mean that his beneficiaries will own his portion of the business. In order to determine what options you have, you will need to meet with a business lawyer to review all your current legal documentation. Meet with a business lawyer as soon as possible. 2. If your partner is still living, and you are working on creating a plan to ensure your partner's children do not get any portion of the business, this is possible. It will require certain legal steps and documentation to ensure this plan is legally enforceable.
