So am I.
Can you please provide a few of the basic facts?
Hi, I want to understand the word in Receipt and Release Document, and what it the purpose of this document. I am helping one lady married with Canadian who passed away but she doesn't speak English.
I know you want to know what the words mean but I need to know what the document is for and what it says.
- just in a very general away.
document is the "receipt and release", it saysreleases the Primary and Secondary Estates of the Deceased and the Trustee forall claims of property rights under the Family Law Act (Ontario) and anyentitlement to an equalization of net family property pursuant to the provisions ofthe Family Law Act (Ontario);3. releases the Primary and Secondary Estates of the Deceased and the Trustee fromall claims to beneficial ownership of any property of the Deceased on the basis ofan implied, constructive, or resulting trust or any other basis whatsoever save andexcept for potential claims to Thailand funeral expenses and potential claims tothe lock-box cash;
I want to know what does it mean, is it mean the lady agree that she will not file any complaint? What's the meaning of Primary and Secondary Estate?
It means that she is giving up all rights to his two estates.She may have rights under the Family Law Act but is giving them up.She CANNOT under any circumstances sign this release until she gets independent legal advice.It means that she gets nothing except funeral expenses and maybe the lock-bosh cash but not definitely.
Thanks a lot, what's the different between primary and secondary estate? In this case, is it the same that she waive her rights in everything except cash in box?
I assume he has to separate estates , perhaps one here and on in Thailand or has things divided up.In any event she is saying she gets nothing, ever, cannot change her mind etc.
I understand now, that's clear answer. Nice talking with you.
