Legal Answers
866 Questions Answered

Q. All of the heirs to my Father's estate are listed on the Will, but not as an executor, what does this mean?
A: There is only one executor or co-executors and the heirs listed are most likely beneficiaries under the will. You will need to look carefully to see what section they are listed under.
Q. Can anyone give me information on what to do about elder mother not able to live alone. I live in Tx
A: Many of the counties have probate/guardianship courts that will send investigators out; however, I am not sure about the county your mom lives in. In this situation it is probably best to call APS.
Q. parents died without a will, affidavit of heirship filed, how can deed be placed in younger sister's name if all agree?
A: Have a lawyer draft the deed, don't atempt to do it yourselves and don't use a quitclaim deed.
Q. Do I include my bank savings statement along with my checking when asked to submit my bank statement by chapter 7 truste
A: Yes. The Trustee wants to know everything about your finances.
Q. Can I add a creditor I forgot on my chapter 7 bankruptcy petition even though I filed on the 6th of January? If so, how?
A: Yes you can amend and add a creditor better to do so as soon as possible. It's necessary to do new declaration statements, etc. though so you should carefully review all the steps. This is a general forum and not meant to give specific details. You're better off paying an attorney a fee to visit with them and make sure it's done correctly.
Q. I was given the title and to my grandma's house and the deed is in my name can my family try to sue me for it.
A: As long as your grandmother was of sound mind when she signed the title over to you and it's been properly recorded and there was no undue influence or duress they should have no grounds to sue you. When a family member gets closer to the end of their life it's very common for other relatives to start fighting over who is going to get what property after they are gone; it's sad but frequent.
Q. Can my child's mother have what I owe in back child support erased? Our son is 21 and lives on his own.
A: In many States the custodial person can sign an affidavit stating they have received the money and there isn't anymore due; however, it will depend on whether there is any money due the State for medicaid recovery, etc. You can check the State's child support website for more information.
Q. Who does one contact? Child support is not being received after paid by non-custodial parent.
A: If he's receiving disability then he should find out if disability is turning it over to the OAG office or holding it. It's his responsibility to make sure you get it.
Q. Is it legal for a 55 plus park to stop you from renting your mobile home to another person
A: Check the rules that you agreed to when you leased the lot.
