Who appoints the guardian....court???
Or can someone who knows him be appointed????
As stated previously, my house and assets are in an irrevocable trust...
When we married he wanted to live in his home, which I agreed to,
it is in a managed trust and originally his brother was his trustee, however,
several months ago, after his placement decided he did not want to be
trustee, and named me as trustee..... which all the paperwork was done..
I believe in this state (NC) after he has reached his cap on long term insurance, it would be necessary to go into his annuities(which he did not
have in trust) and then the house or after my assets.... I guess I am trying to
save at least his home for heirs.... can I put it in an irrevocable trust????
A stated prior, he has no children, but does have living one sister,
and 2 brothers, one of which is developmentally impaired so his
would have to go into trust...
I am still trying to find what is best for both of us.... I have two daughters,
so want to protect my assets....that is why the question of possibly a
divorce came up, as I will be liable for his bills, once he has exhausted
