Customer Question
I am a woman who...
I am a woman who wants to leave her property to a domestic male partner and not my children? How can I make certain that he remains in the house owned by me, pays the mortgage, which he is doing now, and his children and grandchildren receive the property upon his death, or upon my death if it is after he dies?

Hello,



My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.



Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.



Do you have a will?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no will yet or will change the existing one
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 8 years ago
Then this is what you have to do. Your will will change the usual way property is divided after someone passes, so that you can direct it to go to ANYONE. Here is a sample will below:http://www.medlawplus.com/forminfo/wills/sample/floridawill.pdf

Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up information.



I hope you found my answer helpful, and if so please click on the ACCEPT button. This is the only way for me to get credit for my work - when you put in your payment information, I receive no credit for my time with you unless you press ACCEPT.



There is no fee for follow up questions should you wish to continue in this thread.



Remember, sometimes the law under which your situation falls does not give you the outcome or the choices you wanted - please understand that this is not the attorney's fault, but the way of circumstance.



There might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.



If you feel that I went an extra step to help, a bonus would be appreciated!



You can always request me for a future legal consultation through my profile at http://www.justanswer.com/profile.aspx?PF=7286322&FID=7 If you do this, make sure to begin the question with “This Question is for Eli…”

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
