A few years ago, my soon to be ex spouse placed both of our homes in a family trust, one of which he purchased prior to our marriage. He is claiming that this property is not subject to equitable distribution because it is his non-marital asset. Does the trust have any bearing on how the home will be classified (marital or non-marital)?

My sister and her husband had a company that borrowed from

My sister and her husband had a company that borrowed from my dad's estate to buy properties and build a house. My sister n husband's business owes my dad's estate because nothing has sold from almost 10 years. In fact up until 3 years ago I asked my mom to finish the house so I could live in it and she put money in it to fix it. Recently she died so now my sister is trying to get me out of the house but i didn't want to move until my house is finished being built. It seems like a conflict of interest but she's the trustee of my dad's family trust and her business owes principle and interest from the properties that never sold. I paid them rent but there was never a lease agreement. Is there anything I can do to stop her from listing the house and kicking me out?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MarylandJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean filed or reported?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My moms personal lawyer is handling her estate.

I need to attach a contract. Can I do that here? Florida- in

I need to attach a contract. Can I do that here?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: Florida- in Duval county, totally corrupt and Im being shafted by my second set of lawyers on a no merit contract in the most corrupt county in FLJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Been in litigation now three years. $300,000 for a contingency contract my sisters unethical lawyer wrote . She was mentally handicapped from drug addiction died a year after she signed the contract. She paid him $5000 retainer for household chores and landlord issues. She never read or understood the contract. He wrote in "any gifts, trusts and estate distributions he gets 405 Our family trust was dissolved for FATCA tax reasons and distributed to her without her lawyers participation at all. She died four months later and I am the sole beneficiary so I am being sued. I was told by my lawyer and judge friends here in less corrupted less incestuous county Palm Beach. Duval is notorious. Google Judge Mahon and his alterations of the first amendment. Its illegal to call a judge corrupt within 200 feet of the courthouse. I won't set foot in that town. My first lawyer, probate from Tallahassee said it was a no merit illegal fee contract. A Slam dunk win and a day in court if not thrown out. Wait a year for probate then he will disbarred the crooked lawyer himself . I hired the firm he recommended and they made it into a circus. No need to explain when they are in the press for corruption by fleecing clients, ruing lives. Its all in the press. I have come to the end as trial in March. Cant settle now as trial will be as much as the settlement from the start. I do have documentation enough to sue the firm that railroaded me. I email never speak on phone. This is the third trial but my first one as a defendant. I already lost and will "win" in legal terms but loose in financial. Lost my family and health in three years now I will loose all my money to Duval. I have been setting up for an appeal or lawsuit from the start. I didn't do it then as my second set , no different, said I would get all my fees back. Just last week said I would not. So Im screwed or I sue?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Its not a normal legal situation. Must see news on Duval county. Its unbelievable until you are the one who is the victim.
