Request Law Educator, Esq I have had to take care of myself

Request Law Educator, EsqI have had to take care of myself first and am still trying so I want to keep things simple.Mom had AARP Health Insurance. They have had notices on fraud related to unnecessary procedures. The county hospital and the doctor in care of her cleaned her out leaving no benefits and no results until I figured out what they were doing and intervened. I talked to the fraud investigation unit with the Department of Commerce and Insurance. He was infuriated. I have never got the information to him due to illness. In this case is the statute of limitations 3 years for insurance fraud?

I need help putting together my answer to an eviction from

I need help putting together my answer to an eviction from my home, it is owned by a trust that my grandfather set up for me and I am the only beneficiary of the trust. I am being evicted because I filed a lawsuit against the trustees. It is a Missouri trust and I live in Kansas. Five years ago just after my grandfather died, the trustees deleted the purpose of the trust, it was supposed to provide for "health, education, maintenance, and support". They did not tell me about it and forged my signature on the notifications of the amendments. They replaced the standard with "absolute and sole discretion" and now claim they can do whatever they want. There is a special trustee in place that I believe has the authority to change anything but I'm getting ready to file a lawsuit in Missouri to challenge this change. The Kansas lawsuit is a long story but it involves unlawful imprisonment, fraud, conspiracy, and one heck of a defamation claim. It's complicated, but right now I've got to deal with this eviction answer... I need to know if I can deny each of these claims as a beneficiary by Kansas law and how I should word it, I don't have a lease or anything other than my trust.They claim that the trust owns fee simple title of the property, is this correct? Do I agree and then throw in the I have a beneficial interest or what?They claim to have "full administrative authority" to invest and manage the property of the trust. They do by the trust and they deleted the h.e.m.s. standard... But obviously evicting me isn't in my best interest. But do I deny this claim?They claim that I am occupying the property as a tenant at will, I don't have a lease but I'm not a tenant, I'm a beneficiary of my trust. Do I deny this?They claim to be evicting me with the intent on selling the property, can I deny this and state that don't have a right to sell my home because of the original intent by the h.e.m.s. Standard?They tried to pull a fast one, they delivered the first summons last week and it said the court date was a month away. I checked the court website a few days ago and the time stamps showed that just after they served me with the eviction, they cancelled that court date and an alias was issued with a court date of yesterday... I asked their attorney about it and he told me that he had verified that what was served to me was the alias and basically called me a liar. He said that the original had never even been issued. When I pointed out that the process server delivered the summons at 1:00 and the alias wasn't even created until 4:00, he apologized and cancelled that court date. Now it's on the 7th. They were planning on me missing the court date. Can I include this incident for the court to see? Also, I have an email from the trustees that says "just don't sue and you won't be evicted". Well, I sued so here I am.Can I include the forged signatures from the notifications about removing the Standard? It's five years old but pretty relevant I think...Here's another thing, my mother is a trustee along with 4 other people, she wants nothing to do with these guys let alone evicting me but they put her name and the petition and her name only, they are all out of state but still, does that make any sense? If it's only going to be her at the hearing then the judge will be really confused, they do have an attorney though.

Our Mother passed away June 5th in County Florida, as a

Our Mother passed away June 5th in Martin County Florida, as a Florida resident. She did not have a will, and her estate is less than $75,000.00. There are no debts, no real property, and no obligations. All there is, are just two bank accounts, one of which I am a signer, the other is a savings account. The only airs to the estate are my Brother and myself. There are no contested assets.Can we handle this situation without the involvement of an Attorney? I have been quoted $2000 to file the appropriate paper work by a local Attorney.If it is possible to do this ourselves, what are the forms we would need, and where do we get them, to file with the state, in order to have the funds dispersed and accounts closed?

My aunt passed away 3 months ago and I was named executor in

My aunt passed away 3 months ago and I was named executor in her will. Having spent the last 3 1/2 years in a nursing home she had no property to deal with but does have less than 3,500.00 in funds. I have filed with the Massachusetts Probate court as personal representative for a small estate. All funds according to the will are to be distributed to her 3 great granddaughters. Issue is that she had a burial policy at a local bank and I have been told that I need to get an EIN from the IRS and open an account to have the funds deposited in. Is this necessary or can i claim the policy and dispense the funds. Also, what documentation do I need to prove that the funds have been distributed properly?

Mom aged 83, living in assisted living in, asked me 3 years

Mom aged 83, living in assisted living in Virginia, asked me 3 years ago when she wrote up a VERY SIMPLE Revokable Trust to be her Gen'l POA, Medical POA, Trustee and Executor. Prior to that it was assumed it would be my brother since he was the Executor of my Dads (VERY SIMPLE) estate when he died 15 years go. My mother chose to go the other route since my brother has some health issues, and since I live literally 1/2 mile from my mom and I am her main caregiver etc. My brother who has been very upset about Mom even getting a trust - he claims he doesn't understand the need etc, has been badgering me for these last 3 years about why, what's in it, who are the beneficiaries etc. Since mom entrusted me with the "posession" of her Trust papers he feels he has the right as a beneficiary (while she is STILL Alive - and hasn't resigned the trust to me yet) to see everything in the Trust documents AND a copy of the will since he is a beneficiary along w/ myself and my two other sisters. He harassed mom's lawyer so much he will no longer take my brothers calls, and frankly she doesn't feel the need for him to be involved with it at this point. Recently again, he wrote me a 6 page hand written letter including a copy of a "newsletter" - which he hoped would help me see what my role is - (The newsletter was regarding post-mortem not while living). If mom doesn't feel the need for him to have a copy, and her lawyer wont take his calls anymore, can he technically continue to harass me about this? Am I responsible to give him all these copies of things he wants now? How can I get him to stop? As I said it is VERY simple. Not funded with anything strange or unknown to the family. Thank you.
