I need help understanding what my mother will be paying for…

Customer Question
Hi, I need help...

Hi, I need help understanding what my mother will be paying for money she is inheriting from her brother that left her and her sister inheritance in his will.

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Do I need to get a consultation with an inheritance knowledgeable attorney so I will know if she has to pay taxes on her inheritance, and if she can gift some of the inheritance to her 4 children without penalty.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Mom's primary home is in Charlotte, NC, but since she has been sick, I moved her in with me in South Carolina.

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

For what?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

What kind of documents or supporting papers do you need?

By the way, is this my free 7 day trial? I was aware that I had 7 days to try this before they charged me 47.00
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 4 months ago

I thought I had a 7 day free trial to ask questions, I was NOT informed I would be charged $47. to get an answer. This is misleading and I am not happy. I will contact an attorney here in SC that has a free consultation to get some answers. Thank you.
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Okay. I will let Customer Service know.

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.
