Legal Answers
Q. I live in florida and my deceased mother used to receive royalty checks for property that family owned? Oil companies
A: Be cautious when dealing with companies who want to purchase the minerals. Often purchasers know much more about your minerals than you do. For example, they may be aware increased development in the near future. Also, they will typically want you to warrant title which means that you may have the expense of probating the minerals. It is very likely that you would be able to probate the minerals without ever needing to travel to Oklahoma. You need a probate attorney that is familiar with oil and gas inheritance. He/she should have resources for determining the value of the minerals if you wish to sell. This post is not legal, tax or investment advice. Reading or responding to this post does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Q. Person in possession of heirship affidavit on my ancestor has been impersonating self as my deceased ancestor since 198-
A: This is not a rant against you or against pro se litigants in general. Your story may be compelling, but the problem is most clients need coaching in order to tell the relevant portions. Most clients want to bring up extraneous matters. You have limited time to explain the salient points. You are also likely to be clobbered with procedure. Allegations of fraud have heightened pleading requirement. How will you handle discovery? Will your story be admissible or will it be excluded as hearsay or for some other reason. If you get a judgment how will you enforce it? Can you recover from the forger. Aimee is correct, most attorneys will not handle a matter from the sidelines. Often this can actually cost more as the attorney will have to school the client on every twist and turn. There is the old adage: A Man Who Is His Own Lawyer Has a Fool for a Client If this is worthwhile hire an attorney. This post is not legal, tax or investment advice. Reading or responding to this post does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Q. If someone makes a will and then lists someone else as POD of their bank account. What happens? Who would the money go?
A: I agree the the answers below, however if the individual named was married to the account holder then divorced prior to his or her death, then Title 15 O.S. Section 178 may prevent the divorced beneficiary from collecting.
