Q. My aunt died in 2012 with a Will saying she left $25k and her “community property interest “ in her home to me but only
A: As of the date of your Aunt's death, you own her 1/2 of the community property, subject to her spouse's right to live there. At surviving husband's death you should have received your Aunt's remaining 1/2 of the community property. She can only give away her 1/2 of the community property. She gave her 1/2 to you. You need an experienced wills and trusts attorney to help you with this.
Q. I have a Trust and Living Will with an Amendment. I want to revert to the original. Can I simply tear up the Amendment?
