Summary

Traditional estate planning isn’t cutting it anymore. The typical will and estate plan can result in your in laws snatching assets that were meant for your grandchildren. To sort out this mess, you need more than a generalist. Dual-licensed as both an Attorney and a CPA, this is why I’ve chosen to restrict my practice to two areas: estate planning and tax. I’m also Board-Certified as an Estate Planning Law Specialist by the ABA-accredited Estate Law Specialist Board. With multiple office locations, if you’re looking for a tax or estate planning attorney near Toms River, Red Bank, Freehold, Old Bridge, Atlantic/Cape, or throughout the country (click here for full location list), I can help you create a stable and secure future for you and your loved ones. Having lived in New Jersey my entire life, and having practiced in New Jersey my entire career, there’s a good chance I’ve helped one of your friends, relatives, or colleagues in the past. I’d like to help you as well.

Q. Own a house with ex-husband who has dementia. Accoding to our wills I inherit his and he inherits mine. Do I need a
A: Assuming his IRA is a traditional and nor Roth IRA, you will pay income tax as you withdraw the funds. However, NJ law often invalidates Wills which leave property to ex-spouses if the Wills date back before the divorce. In addition to everything else I mentioned, if your ex-husband ends up needing nursing home care, his share of the home could also be lost under the NJ Medicaid estate recovery program if pre-planning isn't done. Medicaid planning is tricky; I do it as part of my practice. The foregoing was for discussion only and was not legal advice. -Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA, http://vandrew.com, Disclaimer: http://j.mp/lUJeMg
Q. If a Contractor does not pay the supplier for materials used to repair my home, Can a lein be put on my house?
A: Usually the answer to this question is yes they can, so long as the proper procedures are followed by the party that didn't get paid. The only upside is that you can never be liable to anyone with a construction lien on your home for more money than you were originally supposed to pay the contractor. You can contact me if you want to discuss more specifics. The foregoing was for discussion only and was not legal advice. -Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA, http://vandrew.com, Disclaimer: http://j.mp/lUJeMg
Q. What is the procedure to amend the bylaws of a corporation incorporated in New Jersey?
A: Check the current bylaws and Certificate of Incorporation. They should contain the procedure for their own amendment. The foregoing is for discussion purposes only and is not legal advice. Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA, http://vandrew.com Disclaimer: http://j.mp/lUJeMg
Q. How to update executor short certificate
A: More information would be needed to answer this question fully, but I can tell you that it is likely that whatever action is ultimately taken will need to be taken in the Surrogate's office in the county where the will was probated. That would be the first office to call. The foregoing is for discussion purposes only and is not legal advice. -Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA, http://vandrew.com, Disclaimer: http://j.mp/lUJeMg
Q. Can i deduct realty property taxes accrued after death as an administration expense on 706 ?
A: The general answer is no. Those expenses would instead be deductible on Form 1041 when the Estate files its income tax return. -Jeff Vandrew Jr, Attorney-CPA, http://www.vandrew.com, See Disclaimer: http://j.mp/lUJeMg
