Customer Question
My son's wife of two...
My son's wife of two 3 years (they have been separated for the last year) will not release his body for burial unless I sign over property which I own to her. What can do. I see this as a threat. I paid their bills and they lived rent free in a condo which I own. I am tired.

Thank you.
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 21 days ago

My condolences for your loss.

What is the property she is claiming?

How long has it been since the death? Where is the body?

Customer reply replied 21 days ago
My son died May 21, 2018. His body is at the funeral home. She wants me to sign over ownership of the condo where they lived before marital separation. She has no assets to pay expenses. She has been living with her mother.
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 21 days ago

Have you contacted the funeral home directly to indicate that you wish to step in and exercise the right of sepulcher, as his estranged spouse is refusing to do so?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Just going through a separation with my daughters mother. We were never married so I don't need a divorce but I want to know my child support obligation. I wish it was as easy as giving you my income but my situation is tough. I recently opened a business but I do not make a dime until my partners are paid back in full which could take some time about a year or so. I dedicate 2 days of my time working here in the meantime but like I said I am not making a dime of my shares until their initial investment is paid back so I am working for free. I took a part time job as a bartender but I haven't really started yet as it is a seasonal position. With that said I have no real income at the moment and will probably average around 600/week. I have been living off my savings which I can continue to for a while but in the meantime with no income since the beginning of the year how do I know how much I should be paying her ? … read more
