15 Questions Answered

Q. I was arrested while on probation. There was no hold put on me and I was released will I be arrested for violation
A: This is not a probate question. You need to post this in the criminal law section. In short, it depends. Your probation officer may choose to file a revocation. You should post this question in the criminal law section for a more thorough response.
Q. What is the remedy for not being given legal notice for a hearing in probate court in Fulton county Georgia
A: I would recommend that you contact the court regarding this issue immediately. Most likely, you will have to file a Motion to set aside the Order of the Court. If you bring it to the court's attention, they may vacate the order.
Q. What happens if I don’t sign for the succession but everybody else did?
A: Hello. You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. This is a difficult question to answer given the information provided. I am unsure if anyone has actually filed to be named as administrator or executor based on the information provided. I will assume someone has petitioned to be named the administrator. I am also unclear what you mean by everyone signed the paper for succession. If you mean the acknowledgment, then what happens is the probate court will send the document to you if you did not sign. You will then have 10 days in which to object (13 depending on service). If you do not object within that time then the petitioner will be named as the administrator. If you timely object, the court will schedule a hearing to resolve the issue. Regarding the trailer, this will depend on a great deal of factors. If you cannot buy out your siblings interest, the court could require that the trailer be sold and the proceeds divided. If you feel you have made improvements to the trailer you can file a claim against the estate and the court can determine the validity of that claim. There are really lots of issues here and I strongly suggest you consult with an attorney.
Q. If someone told my probate officer I moved when I haven't. How can someone get me out of jail?
A: This question is listed in the wrong section.
Q. I received an Acknowledgment of Service and Assent to Probate Instanter, today. Is it really necessary that I return it?
A: The answer it depends. If you consent to the proposed executor being named as the executor then you can sign the acknowledgment of service and have no objection to the probate of the will, then you can sign the acknowledgment. You make sure you have reviewed the will and do not see any problems with the petition. You are not required to sign the acknowledgment. If you do not sign the acknowledgment, after the prescribed period, the court will move forward with appointing the petitioner if no one objects. The benefit of the acknowledgment is that is can help speed up the process and not require certain notices.
Q. If someone told my probate officer I moved when I haven't. How can someone get me out of jail?
A: This question is posted in the wrong forum. This is a criminal law question.
Q. My father passed away Aug of last year..He had a will but his sister is hiding it..I'm the only child and he never wed
A: You can file a Motion to require that she file the will if you are certain that he had a will. If a will has not been filed and you are not certain he had a will then you can file to be named as administrator over the estate.
Q. I was looking for clarification on how a last will and testament works and what an executor can actually do and not do.
A: I would first like to express my sympathy for the loss of your father. It seems that your grief has been compounded by the turmoil in the family. When a will has language like "everything equally between my children" it is rather broad in the language but does not necessarily mean that the executor gets to do what they want. Since the will leaves everything to the children equally, it would be my position that your sister would not necessarily have the authority to "get rid of" things in the estate without first discussing with you and your siblings as technically those things belong to the five of you. If you are concerned, I would strongly suggest you contact an attorney to discuss your options and possible intervention. The attorney would need to take a look at the will to determine what authority your sister was granted and what type of accounting is required. **This advice is based on the laws of the State of Georgia.
Q. Can heir property be taken from other heirs if the person who stay in the home leaves it to someone else in their will?
A: In order to properly answer this question, a little more information is needed. I am not clear on what you are considering "heir" property. In any event, a person can only leave what they have so even if the person is staying in the property that does not necessarily give them title to the property (we will not get into a squatter's right situation). If the property is owned by several people, the person can only leave their portion in the will. It also needs to be determined if the property has ever been properly conveyed to the heirs. Just briefly, a squatter may have rights if they have been in possession of the property openly and without permission for a period of 7 years and the owners have neglected the property. I would suggest you and the "heirs" contact an attorney to look into this issue. Hope this helps.
