Husband and second wife had no will or living trust. The

Husband and second wife had no will or living trust. The husband was the breadwinner and had considerable investments in a brokerage account. The husband and wife both became ill with cancer. (The wife filed for divorce but did not conclude the divorce.) Two days before he died, she wrote a trust. She then died a few months later. The trust she wrote leaves to the beneficiaries percentages of her estate, which assumes his investments. My question is this: if he named beneficiaries as part of his brokerage account, does that pre-empt her ability to assume those assets and designate to her beneficiaries?

My father passed away four months ago and has a irrevocable

Hi, my father passed away four months ago and has a irrevocable living trust with my step mother who is living now. During my father's last three weeks of life he came to live in my home and verbally told me and my sister to go to his house and take 4 large framed photos and some small ones that were photographed by his father (my grandfather) 45 years ago. During his illness while he was still living at his home with his wife, he made copies of his house key and gave me his alarm code. We did go get those family framed photos and took possession of them 2 weeks before he died. i have just received a letter from her estate attorney demanded these items back. She has also asked for other small things that I never took possession of as well as a pressure cleaner that my father gave my husband and I 3 years ago. In addition, she is asking for 2 photo albums my father had. One was filled with photo of my mother and my sister and I and the other was his military photo album that she allowed me to take. Do I have to legally give these things back to her? Do I have to respond to what I feel is a ridiculous request?

My mother in-law is terminally ill. We are assisiting my father-in-law

My mother in-law is terminally ill. We are assisiting my father-in-law in organizing some estate issues. They reside in Virginia. They have an enormous amount of medical debt from her illness. The families primary concern is how to secure their house and family heirlooms against collection should something happen to both of them. In the event she passes away quickly he may simply file bankruptcy to discharge the medical debt. But in the event something happens to him what is the best thing to do? The house has a lot of euity but is not fully paid off. Can we put the house and any heirloom antiques etc into a living trust? Or is a standard Will sufficient in this instance? Or is there a better way to handle it all together?
