Q. My father passed away july 2020. after living with us for 15 yrs. We built onto our home for him to have his own area.
A: If your name is on everything, that's what will determine ownership. assets with beneficiary designations are not subject to probate.
Q. As a beneficiary I never receive any communication whatsoever from the Executrix of my fathers estate. What can I do?
A: If you are a beneficiary, you have to be notified of the filing of an inventory and the final account, giving you an opportunity to object, and the Court would schedule a hearing on any and all objections. Other than that requirement, the fiduciary has no obligation to communicate directly with the beneficiaries.
Q. My fathers trust is sole beneficiary of his estate. So why would the attorney file my fathers estate in probate?
A: Any assets that are not specifically mentioned as being in the trust, must go through probate to allow the transfer.
