- Q. property transfer without will next step
- A: It sounds like the Central Appraisal District ("CAD") lists the Estate as the owner. If your mother's will wasn't probated, schedule a meeting with a probate attorney. Even if you can't find the original of your mom's will, you still need to meet with a probate attorney to help you get the property legally transferred to you. By the way, your wife would have nothing to do this property. Inherited property is separate property, not community property. So, a wife wouldn't typically have a claim to inherited property. Again, go see a probate lawyer to be sure.
- Q. I am in the process of purchasing a new home, and I need assistance to put the house in a trust account.
- A: You should definitely schedule a consult meeting with an estate planning attorney to a trust prepared. They can help you by setting up the trust documents prior to the closing of the home, then the title company could deed the property directly into your new trust.
- Q. Should I get married or make a will?
- A: Yes, you should definitely get a will and NO you should definitely not get married for the reasons you mention. You should get an attorney prepared by an experienced estate planning attorney. Yes, it will cost a bit of money. However, those it would be SO worth it to have a Will done by a really good lawyer. It's really important that the will be extremely difficult for someone to get overturned if you pass away. It needs to be as ironclad as possible, so you really don't want to use an internet company for making your will.
