Do Estate laws apply to former employees of The Secret Service, the Secrets Service and as a former Lance Corporal to the State Penitentiary System of the State of Illinois that I should not be lax with regarding former applications for employment, as a totally disabled "ONE MAN WAR Member" Era Vietnam Veteran as a former Lieutenant of Central Intelligence Agency and Sergeant of The Secret Service? As applies to falling into the hands of the enemy, my property and assets to communist and Socialism adversaries domestic and foreign that I swore and oathed to defend against. Or may I keep this with your colleagues for the personal conversation and records of the Borough of Northampton if no actions are needed to remove me from any illegal employment lists in the County of Northampton. My emploment records are with the Director of Central Intelligence Agency, XXXXX, XXXXX including ties to Northampton Police, whom involuntarily inducted me as a Police Officer and Official to the State of Illinois with Foreign duties around the planet as an Agent for the United States Navy (1970-71). Thank you, XXXXX XXXXXXXX@XXXXXX.XXXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX

Called and visited county seats of government and called most Law Enforcement agencies and had my statement signed and personal ID photograph on premises by The Secret Service of Philadelphis for The National Security Agency on a Communist Police matter wit wide proportions including locally Northampton to Borough of Northampton Police.
Thank you for your question.There is nothing in US federal or any State's laws which exempt Secret Service employees or military personnel from local estate laws.However, you should know that the *location* of any particular property or asset usually affects how it is treated. Estate law can control ONLY probate estate property--that is why putting one's assets into an estate planning trust avoids probate.The general rule is that any probate proceedings should be filed in the state and county of the decedent's domicile as of the date of death. Being temporarily somewhere else at death does not make it the domicile--the intent to remain there indefinitely must also be present (domicile and jurisdiction is about three days' worth of reading and lecture in law school).And a probate estate does not exist until the owner of the assets has died.Thank you.BAB.
