Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. Are you saying you are the Father of the decedent. The decedent had insurance. The beneficiary was the estate of the decedent. No one opened an estate proceeding and the insurance company turned the money to the state? if this is the case, after opening up an estate proceeding, the personal representative of the estate can obtain the money from the state of California. If you are the only heir, then that money would be your money.

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.

I'm mentioned in my parents' trust as beneficiary however
Hello I'm mentioned in my parents' trust as beneficiary however the lawyer handling the estate refuses to inform me of the amount and financial worth of the assets. My father passed away in April, 2017 and he had promised to inform me of the assets, however upon asking him twice he's refused to answer me. He is representing my sister and mother, who I don't get along with. My question is if, according to the law in CT, he is required to inform me since I'm a beneficiary and if there is a deadline to inform me. It was only under duress that I received both the will and trust from this lawyer. Thanks, Mali … read more
