My father died and left my family a lot of jewelry and
My father died and left my family a lot of jewelry and artwork that isn't cash. It is possible that he and his friends/workers wanted to become rich with it (by selling them, by setting up a museum, etc.) He is involved with business people (?) who want to gain access to his property now to continue their work. So they talked to my mother that they want to buy his house (my dad has an extra house where all the artwork and expensive things are stored). They want to buy his house because there is no other way they can have access to those things otherwise.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: I'm very young and I'm not in the USA (I'm in Hong Kong). Perhaps just a general answer or some of your thoughts on this? Thanks!JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet, we don't have a family lawyer.JA: OK. Got it.

My mother passed away on 4/20/16, she left a house and its
My mother passed away on 4/20/16, she left a house and its contents and a car to me in a trust and a large amount of stock to my daughter who is to receive a sum of money when 18 and the rest when she is 25 year old also in that same trust. She made my uncle first trustee, my aunt second and myself as third trustee. Neither my uncle or aunt will return any phone calls or text. I recently found out that my aunt took all of my mom's jewelry that was promised to my 14 year old daughter. My question..... don't they (1st and 2nd trustees) have to stay in contact with me re: the trust and paying bills i.e medical bills, credit card accounts, etc. I have been getting the run around from the attorney that set up the trust and I keep getting bills for credit cards. Again neither of them will call me back!

My husband was a famous comic book writer and when he passed
My husband was a famous comic book writer and when he passed away twenty years ago, I opened his will to find that his final wish was to be cremated and put into a comic book. Marvel Comics agreed and I travelled to the printing plant in Connecticut and stirred the ash into the ink and 5000 copies were created with him in it. Flash forward to today, and I had a tribute to honor his 20 year passing and Marvel did not want to do the ash in ink again because they claimed it was illegal and also the plant is in China, too far to travel. I created an idea called the "ash-o-graph" and at the tribute I stamped a commemorative poster with with a stamp of his autograph and the ash was in the ink on the stamp pad. I have 100 of these posters and wanted to sell them to his fans. Someone said it was illegal to do that. I need to check with the legality of this so that I can do it. If I do it and make a contribution to his Scholarship Fund, is that a way around it cause it's a "donation" and not a sale, per se. Thanks for the advice!!

May the winds blow softly and the days bring happy smiles. IView more legal questions
Hello There,May the winds blow softly and the days bring happy smiles.I have a Will question. My mother passed away and things happened before she passed and another Will was drawn up just months before her passing away. There is only my sister and myself as beneficiaries in the Will. I was written out of the will, BUT some in Article IX there is some special wording that i think pertains to me and me alone.I did not do anything about contesting the Will for months until a compercial was seen on TV about people being cut out of Wills.Article I StatesI declare that ia m single. I have two (2) children, whoes names are***** and DANIEL TENISON. I have intentionally made no provisions for DANIEL TENNISON in this Will.Article IX states.If any beneficiary under this Last Will and Testament, directly or indirectly , by legal proceedings or otherwise, challenges or contests this Will or any of its provisions. or attempts in any manner to oppose or set aside the probate of this Will, or impair or invalidate any of its provision, any gift or other provision I have made to or for that person, under this Will, is revoked and shall be disposed of as if that contesting beneficiary had predeceased me without issue.I went to an attorney just 5 days ago to see if the Will was proper because my mothers signature just did not look normal to me. I was told that i had a good case about disputing this will because the First Will was a 50/50 split between us children and then the will was changed after my mother found out she had stage 4 terminal Lung Cancer.Now also in this will there is a special exception in Article IV Stating:In the event that there should be found with my Will a typed or handwritten list making specific bequests of personal property to certain persons, then that my Executor follow such bequests and see that such property is delivered to those persons.Now being there is onlt my sister and I i believe my mother wanted to make sure i did not try and TAKE ALL property from my sister and that was the reason for the addition of Article IX about the contesting or challenging of this Will.Can you let me know if i DID get an attorney a after the will was filed at the court house but did not do anything to contest it or challenge it cause a me to forfeit any Gift she might have left me per Article IV?I feel this was directed at me because all other property was left to my sister even though i took care of her for 15 years before my sister entered the picture and did what ever she did to get my mother to change her Will.Thank You - Daniel
