Legal Answers
448 Questions Answered

Q. Can you keep your vehicle in Chapter 7 bankruptcy? Still paying for vehicle and owe a year and half.
A: You can keep it if you are current on payments and you carry insurance on the vehicle as required. The answer is different if you own multiple vehicles.
Q. Small estate affidavit question
A: I have already answered this question in another area.
Q. All I own is a house and property. Can I just deed it over to my heir or is a will needed
A: You may be able to do a "Revocable Transfer on Death Deed" and do a will as a backup. You should speak with an estate planning lawyer who can answer your questions in depth.
Q. Small estate Affidavit use
A: Are you referring to yourself as the bearer due to you filing the small estate affidavit or are you on the bank account? Typically, the bank will disburse the funds according to the small estate affidavit which would mean equally to you and your brothers. This is different if there is another account holder named with your mother.
Q. I'm trying to find out about my case Macon vs. Owens al
A: Your question doesn't provide enough detail to answer. If you are wanting the status of a case you are involved with you may contact the attorney representing you or the courts. Many courts allow online access to see the status of your case.
Q. A camper has been left on our property and we’ve asked the owner repeatedly to collect it. What can we do?
A: There are methods for declaring something abandoned which will then give you the right to dispose of the property. Check with the appropriate titling agency, i.e. DMV, etc.
Q. Texas Inestate law for an adult child , decedent was married but NOT to childs father.
A: Your cousin should contact a probate lawyer in the county where the property is and/or where the person died. Your cousin can open a probate proceeding if necessary or there may be more feasible options depending on the facts of the case.
Q. if my husband dies without a will can his daughter come in and take stuff out of my house that was there before.
A: I suggest your husband have a will prepared that gives specific items to specific people if that is how he wants them to pass.
Q. Good day.....does the probate attorney typically take care of the change of deed for property willed to defendant?......
A: A probate attorney may prepare and file the deed; however, you should make sure in the beginning that it part of the scope of work paid for.
