I have lived with the same man for 24 years, we live on the

I have lived with the same man for 24 years, we live on the west coast of Florida since 2002. We are both in our seventies and are about to get our estate and final wishes in order. We agree that the house we live in should belong to the surviving partner without the estate of the deceased partner having any claim what so ever to the house. So, the question is, Which of these two statements would be the way our Deed should read to protect the partner that survives. 1- My Name a single person and His Name a single person, with right of Survivorship, or 2- My Name a single person and His Name a single person, as Tenants in Common, With Right of Survivorships.ThanksJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: YesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have many questions but I want to address this first. Also I have very poor vision so it takes me a very long time to type.

I have a friend who has been working as Physician's Asst and

I have a friend who has been working as Physician's Asst and would like to set up his own practice, rather than work for someone. He has a trust he will inherit some day with about $400 K in it. His parents are still living. I have been doing some business consulting with him. He would like to access the trust funds for the purpose of setting up his practice. His parents have mentioned possibly helping him out with a loan. He is hoping his parents could work out giving him the trust while they are still alive. We do not know the details about the trust, other than his parents set it up. If the parents set it up, is it likely they can work out an earlier access for him to the trust funds? He figures to make an extra $40K per year by being able to open a practice. He would like to sound intelligent when asking his parents to do this. Maybe he could ask some questions about type of trust. A short education of how it would or would not be possible would be very helpful. He feels if he has a good understanding of how it might work, it will make it easier to get his parents to work it out, if they can.

There is law in the state of Florda that states

There is law in the state of Florda that states beneficiaries are the right to get a statement of assets once a year. Even though the trustee has te right to spend it all with no concequences. I want to contest this law. How do go about it?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: That's what I'm asking? The problem is that my mom is 90. It is a very large amount of money. My brother and sister are beneficiaries in my dad's will and he passed in 2014. My mom is the total trustee. They have no say about how she can spend the money but they torment her. Why should they even been allowed to get a statement every year if she can spend the whole thing if she wants?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. I just don't understand why there would be a law like that in place. Beneficieries can get a statement one day and a trustee can go to Vegas the next day and blow all the money if they want. Tecnically it's NOT their money!
