Legalgems. so Im discussing the cashing of the check,

Hi again legalgems. so Im discussing for now the cashing of the check, written to my daughter under the Nevada uniform transfer act to minors. and me as "custiodian for". And if cashing the check will cause problems for me to contest the part of the probate that only pertains to me, not my daughter.So, take a look Below....at what I got from a Nevada's attorneys office and their simplified versions explaining how to understand this Uniform minors act in Nevada:As this interpretation tells me there shouldn't be ANY repercussions cashing daughters check.??And doesn't the "Tort" thing pertain to my case also.... working in my favor? (thanks and see below)WHAT IS THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THE UNIFORM TRANSFERS TO MINORS ACT?Instead of a trust, guardianship or conservatorship, the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act contemplates a custodianship of the property that would otherwise transfer directly to the minor. The custodian would be either an adult or an appropriate institution, which would serve in that capacity until the minor reaches the age specified in the statute. Age of maturity ranges from 18 to 25 depending on the state's version of the statute. The custodial relationship is created by executing a simple document.Nevada's age of maturity is 18.WHAT IS THE EXTENT OF LIABILITY OF THE CUSTODIAN?Pursuant to the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, the liability of custodians has been limited as the type of property which can be transferred has been expanded. The custodian has specific statutory authority to deal with the property on behalf of the minor. The custodian will not be held personally liable for contractual obligations where it is clear that the custodian signed only in the capacity of “custodian”. Nor will the custodian be held personally liable on TORT claims arising from the ownership or control of custodial property unless the custodian is found to be personally at fault.Created 8/04/2015If you have questions regarding the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, or any other estate planning needs, please contact Anderson, Dorn & Rader, Ltd., either online or by calling us at(###) ###-####Here's the link:understanding the nevada uniform transfers to minors act

We live in Colorado. My 92 year old mother has dementia. We have tried to keep her out of a nursing home but that is becoming very difficult. She has very little money. But she has properties still in her name worth about $700,000. We assume that it is too late to have them transferred to us and that the state will take them if she has to go into a nursing home. Is that correct?Also, if she gifts them to us, would estate or gift tax be prohibitive?Any suggestions or are we pretty much screwed?

My parents were in nursing homes on a temp basis. My sisters

My parents were in nursing homes for therapy on a temp basis. My sisters wanted to keep them there for life. One of my sisters and I took them out, signing for their release. Social wkr said my mom had to have 24 hour care even tho they were living independently before the homes. They don't cook or drive, they just live in their house. If we leave them alone, another sister said she will report us to the social wkr. Can they do anything to us? They only lived in the homes for therapy so how can this be that social workers business. Can my sister make them leave their home against their will?

My 80 year old mother has Alzheimer's, her 93 year old husband of 10 years (who has power of attorney) and I do not get along, he is stopping me from seeing my mother and had me removed from the hospital last night while I was visiting her. He has basically made her a prisoner, and can only see people that he wants her to see. Is this legal? Do I have any recourse against him?
