Legal Answers
45 Questions Answered

Q. Do I need a lawyer to probate a will?
A: Under NY law it isn't required, but it is recommended. To probate a will, you will need to prove validity and execute the terms. Depending on the circumstances, this can be complex. It is always a good idea to speak with a lawyer before you try and do it yourself.
Q. What is a collaborative divorce?
A: This is a new area of law where couples can avoid some of the complications associated with a standard divorce. Each party must sign a pledge agreeing not to seek a settlement in court. In certain circumstances, it can save time and money. That said I recommend discussing your situation with legal counsel before making a decision.
Q. My husband and I were in a car accident. We are are separated and considering divorce. Can I sue him for my injuries?
A: Normally, no. Without a written spousal endorsement, one spouse can't sue another.
