Legal Answers
Q. A man quit claims his property to his brother, that man dies. Does the man who quit claimed it, get it back?
A: No, the interest does not revert to the grantor. The house passes to the estate of the deceased grantee. Once you quit claim your house away, your interest terminates.
Q. What (in detail) is a verifiable 3rd party in Michigan when it comes to Adult Guardianship visitation & my rights as GA?
A: Although many of us will read the terms and think that the meaning is clear, it is apparent that there may be multiple interpretations of the visitation terms that the court has put in place. In instances like this, particularly where there has been discord among the interested parties, the best course of action is to file a Petition for Instruction with the court to seek clarity from the Judge. This will ensure that you do not unknowingly or unintentionally run afoul of what the court intended.
Q. Can we start Probate on a brother's estate w/o 1 sibling's cooperation in appointing a Personal Representative?
A: You do not need a unanimous agreement or consensus amongst the heirs to initiate probate. You file the petition with court, and serve all heirs with the copy of the petition and notice of hearing. The sibling that is not cooperative can then file their objections and explain why either probate is unnecessary or why the nominated personal representative is somehow unsuitable to serve. the judge will then determine if the objections have any validity. if the objections are frivolous, the judge will dismiss them and proceed to grant the petition and appoint the nominated personal representative. But no person can prevent you from filing to open the estate. *This is general information that does not constitute legal advice. The answer may change depending on your specific circumstances. ...
