Legal Answers
Q. Our attorney in Ohio just sent us a $48,000 bill for settling my brother's estate. looks excessive. do i have recourse?
A: Assuming you are a beneficiary of the estate, you should have the choice of approving the attorney fees. In most Probate Courts, if you do not agree with the fees requested, the Court will schedule a hearing id there are any disapprovals of attorney fees requested.
Q. In Feb 2021, I received a letter from a financial firm looking for relatives of an uncle who passed in 2015. What now?
A: Check with the Probate Court to confirm if there had been an estate filed. If. There had been an estate, it would have to be reopened for you to have the authority to pursue the funds referenced.
Q. My father passed away july 2020. after living with us for 15 yrs. We built onto our home for him to have his own area.
A: If your name is on everything, that's what will determine ownership. assets with beneficiary designations are not subject to probate.
