How do I have to contest a will? I was living in vegas at

How long do I have to contest a will? I was living in vegas at the time of my grandmas death. I was never sent anything over the reading of the will so I went by the attorneys office and it was changed 5 days before she died and my aunt took the lawyer to my grandmas house and had it done. She had millions of dollars and 95% was given to my aunt and not my dad.

My brother recently died and was not married and did not

My brother recently died and was not married and did not leave a will. I am his sister and the only close family member to deal with everything. He really didn't have much although he had 9/10ths of an acre and was living in a very old mobile home that was falling down around him. All I want is to legally remove personal items, deal with his bank account and he had a few vehicles that didn't run, and maybe take some of them. He was receiving Medicaid. As far as I am concerned the state or whoever can have the property. Do I need a lawyer or is this something I can do on my own? Please help because I am totally lost. Thank youJA: What state is this in? And how old is the mobile home?Customer: This is in Idaho and the mobile home I think is like 1968JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Just for a death certificate I think. He was on Social Security Disability and this was reported to them from the funeral home. As far as I know that is all that has been done.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Only that he didn't have much, and was living with my mother when she passed away so some of the personal things were hers.

My sister has passed away. She did not leave a will or claim

My sister has passed away. She did not leave a will or claim to her house. There are two sisters left in the family. What do I need to do to get her stuff taken care of? Her house is paid for but no insurance because at this time it is considered uninsureable. No car, 90% of the things in her house we put there for her to use. She has a small savings account and a very small checking account. I found out she also has 3 safe deposit boxes. There isn't much to deal with but what are we supposed to do legally to dispose of it?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OklahomaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, this happened on Jan 8th 2017. Her church and health care provider do knowJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know what he may need to know

I am counsel for petitioner in a writ of mandate concerning

I am counsel for petitioner in a writ of mandate concerning a matter of public policy. The writ was filed over a year ago and we are on the 3rd demurrer (it is a very complicated utilities issue the court is having difficulty understanding). Petitioner's response to the latest demurrer needs to be filed and served by January 30, 2017. Unfortunately, petitioner passed away two days ago of a sudden heart attack. Petitioner was indigent and had no assets. He had no will or trust either. His only living relatives are his elderly father (82 years) and his sister (50 years). His sister is willing to continue the writ because it was so important to her brother. My question is 1st: does a writ of mandate seeking declaratory and injunctive relief survive death? 2nd: If it does survive death, do I have to file anything in probate court, or can I just file the appropriate motion in the superior court where the writ is being heard and name the petitioner's sister as the successor in interest?
