Legal Answers
Q. Can someone will property to another person when I was deed certain parts of the property 19 years ago?
A: Your question is not clear as to what you are asking, so I am going to guess that you are asking if someone can devise (gift) real estate under a Will, when part of the real estate was subdivided with several parcels being conveyed out during the decedent' lifetime. The Will can effectively transfer the remaining property and the fact that some parcels were conveyed out doesn't invalidate the gifting of the remaining property. I hope I re-phrased your question properly.
Q. business license vs llc and DBA
A: SInce it appears that you are not operating your "potter" business under your LLC, but as a sole proprietorship, you will need to get your business license in your individual name and as the trade name you use.
Q. Probate case (dying intestate) only 1 living heir (sibling). Are nieces & nephews of deceased siblings eligible?
A: If the level of the heirs at law gets to siblings, then nieces and nephews of deceased siblings (and even great nieces and nephews, if applicable), become heirs at law.
