Legal Answers
270 Questions Answered

Q. What am I in titled to as a surviving spouse?
A: You need to talk to an experienced probate lawyer in your state. In many states, the surviving spouse may have a "forced share" of the decedent's estate even if the decedent tried to disown or limit the spouse's share. Also, you may have a homestead interest in the marital residence that entitles you to live there until your death or abandonment of the property. Justia.com can help you find attorneys near you. Many offer free initial consultations. Good luck.
Q. im trying to find a simple vacant land purchase agreement form with no broker involved and i am paying cash
A: You might try the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission website. They have some free forms there.
Q. In my dads will it says the life insurance is to be devided between my brother and I but my brother is the beneficiary.
A: Unfortunately, the answer is probably no. The insurance money is paid by contract with the insurance company and is not property of your father's probate estate. The Will therefore does not act upon those funds. Unless there are some unmentioned circumstances, your brother does not have to share any of the insurance proceeds with you despite your dad's apparent wishes in his Will.
