Legal Answers
183 Questions Answered
Q. My neighbor, a close friend, asked me to take his dog when he died. He died of cancer last week.
A: If you are to receive his dog (which is deemed "property") then you are a beneficiary of the will. As such, you are entitled to see the Will unless the Will says otherwise (something like, no beneficiary is entitled to a copy of the will and will be subject to judicial review only). Trusts are more common these days than wills. It may be in your neighbors trust. If so the same rules apply as stated previously. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. What happens with a family trust wherein one of the heirs does not cooperate with the trustees?
A: I agree. Ultimately if you have a valid reason for not cooperating, then you don't have a lot to worry about. It is never a good idea to be frivolous withe the Court system. Typically, the resources of the Court are less than are needed. The trustee will likely be able to move forward without your cooperation, depending on what the issue is, and if you remain uncooperative you may miss out or come under liability as the trustee is legally entitled to carry out the terms of the trust. Much of this is speculation as I have no idea what the "uncooperative efforts" are. Best of luck.
Q. how we can transfer of Chapter 7 Corporations Sole , from one successor to another successor in ligal way need lawyer
A: Hello, In order to transfer ownership of a corporation to another you will transfer shares. The other way to do it is to transfer the assets of the corporation by means of an asset purchase. There are benefits and drawbacks to both ways. I suggest we book a consult to discuss this further. Let's schedule a meeting.
