My ex-husband just passed away and upon seeing his life
My ex-husband just passed away and upon seeing his life insurance policy my daughter found out he never changed his policy when he and I married or, more importantly when either of his children were born over 35 years ago. The beneficiary is still showing as his first wife, of whom he told me numerous time how much he hated because she had left with no explanation and never let him see his son even though he had visitation rights.I'm not concerned at all about myself really, it's our daughter I'm concerned about. She spent the better part of last year caring for him as he fought very painful cancer. She even quit her full time job to care for him full time (literally 24/7 as she moved in with him) in his last few months, though she couldn't afford to, but he had no one else step up to assist, so she was all he had.Is there anything she can do about the life insurance? Can she contest it? If so, how does she proceed? Any insight into this situation would be appreciated. Thank you.
Texas Trust Attorney Question: I am the beneficiary of a
Texas Trust Attorney Question: I am the beneficiary of a testamentary trust set up by my Grandfather. I am the sole beneficiary and my three cousins are the remaindermen. The current successor trustee is US Trust after BOA, NCNB, and Republic Bank. They are very expensive, but otherwise haven't done anything wrong. #1: did Texas adopt the no-fault trustee removal sections of the Uniform Code and #2: If the beneficiary (me) and all the remaindermen (my three cousins) would like to change the trustee to be either another bank or Me, or one of my cousins, can we force it or must they resign. Again, they've done nothing wrong, but are just way way too expensive for this little trust.

"for Irwin Law only"Pete recently dicovered that he is the executor so named in the will of his aunt Mary. Pete also recently discovered that the attorney that was holding the will of his aunt Mary released the will to someone other than him!The man that has the will sent letters to the nieces and nephews of Mary telling them that he was going to apply to be the executor of the estate of Mary. He asked the nieces and nephews to sign for the will to go to probate. Some signed some did not sign. The will has not yet been presented to the court for probate! It has been 6 years since the man sent the letters to the nieces and nephews of Mary. What should Bill do? Bill does not have the original will. Bill believes he needs that original will so that he can present it for probate?

Our parents gave our youngest sister a power of attorney to
Our parents gave our youngest sister a power of attorney to handle all their assets in 1999. My siblings and I believe that she has emotionally manipulated them to do so. In any case our parents also left a will to divide all their assets equally among their 7 children. Our mother passed away in 2000 and our father a year later. Our youngest sister immediately announced that she would be now in charge of all their assets and since has cut all communications with us, moved away, and changed her phone, and of course has not done anything with our parents assets, as far as we know. We were distraught by the passing of our parents and didn't take in action. In this case, is the will valid, or is super ceded by the power of attorney? What would be our recourse?

My brothers and I just found out that our mom (84 yrs old)
My brothers and I just found out that our mom (84 yrs old) has cosigned on three salliemae student loans for our sister's college aged children - amounts well in to the 300-400,00 $ range. One more child will enter college in two years when we expect mom will cosign again. Upon her death, will salliemae come after mom's estate? Will settlement of the estate be delayed until salliemae is paid or my sister arranges for other collateral (not likely)? Total estate valued appx $600,000 - $1,000,000 in securities and real estate. Mom has no idea of the total she has signed for over the years. My sister has not provided her with the documentation. Each time more loan $$$$ is desired salliemae phones my mom and has her answer all the questions over the phone, when she verbally, under pressure, reveals every possible detail of her account information and assets.Thank you so much -
