3 Questions Answered
- Q. I'm on child support an I haven't seen my boy in years..I beg an beg no answer ..I pay my support
- A: Hello, If you are wanting to have visitation with or custody of your son then you should begin the process of filing a complaint for child custody. I would definitely start with consulting with family law attorneys in your county since each county has different local rules and can get tricky. I would also try calling the Clerk of Court in your county (or the County that your son lives in if it is different) and ask them if they have any information for you to try to begin that process on your own if necessary.
- Q. Will my children be responsible for my student loans, and credit card debt when I die? Assets are $2000
- A: Hello, Not unless they co-signed on them. Family is not usually responsible for the debt of the decedent unless they have made themselves personally accountable for those debts.
- Q. My disabled sibling died, 7 weeks later my mother (his caretaker) died in 2015. I live in NJ and paid all arrangements
- A: Hello, The bank will likely not give you access to their account without having Letters of Administration. What you should do is contact the clerk of court and ask them about beginning a small estate proceeding or go through with the opening a regular estate and getting the proper documentation to contact the bank. However, just because you might gain access to the account doesn't mean you can just go in and get the money for yourself. You will need to distribute funds according to North Carolina statute and through the proper channels as prescribed by law. The clerk of court should have some resources for you to go through before you open the estate. The clerk that you will need to contact is the clerk of the county of the last residence of the decedent(s) and they should be able to point you in the right direction (they cannot, however, provide legal advice, you will need to reach out to an estates attorney for that).
