Legal Answers
Q. bank account garnish in small claim court in Polk county, where I live years ago.
A: Once a bankruptcy case is dismissed, the Bankruptcy Court will not look any further into it, there is no case. You do not specify under which classification you are entitled to an exemption of claim. If you are able to bring the evidence that proves your entitlement, then the Judge is able to grant your exemption and have any frozen assets released, if they qualify under the exemption law. The final judgment against you that generated the garnishment will remain on the county records for 20 years and may be renewed by the creditor. It may accrue interest, depending on the terms on the final judgment which are specified in it. It becomes a lien on your real property, which will have no adverse effect on you if the property is your homestead, but will have to be paid off if the property is sold or inherited. You may want to consult with an attorney directly to clarify your specific situation and actual consequences.
Q. My mother passed away three months she had a living will my other siblings sold her home didn't include me & other sibli
A: The term "living will" refers to a document where the person signing it expresses her wishes regarding the prolonging of life through artificial means or devices when the person is no longer able to maintain life on her own. A last will and testament is a document that expresses a person's wishes regarding the disposition of her assets upon her death. You do not mention whether your mother left a last will and testament. If she did, directives as to how to dispose of the assets in her name upon her death are contained in the last will and testament. If she did not, then the Florida intestacy laws come into effect. An attorney would have to look into the matter to determine whether the home was sold pursuant to the requirements of the law, and if your interests need to be asserted.
Q. Do I need to sign a waiver while my property is in probate
A: As an heir or beneficiary of property being administered in a probate proceeding in Court, a person may be asked to waive or consent to a number of actions. It is not clear from the question what the waiver is for, and what type of property, real or personal, this is. Typically, beneficiaries of an estate may waive their right to be the personal representative of the estate, consenting to the appointment of a particular individual as personal representative, and also waive the requirement of notice of administration, thus allowing the personal representative to administer the estate more efficiently as it may accelerate or even eliminate certain procedures. This is not inherently good or bad. It needs to be viewed under the particular circumstances in a case.
