5 Questions Answered
- Q. What evidence must be presented at a Determination of Heirship hearing? What will happen at it (in St. Louis County?)
- A: You will need an attorney to proceed with the determination. The petitioner must appear and affirm the statements made in the original petition and whatever other facts the Court deems necessary.
- Q. In Missouri does a last will and testament have to be probated
- A: The real question is, is there any probate left in the decedent, (testator)'s name alone on his date of death? If so, the will should probably be probated. You need to retain independent counsel to determine whether the will should be "probated" or not.
- Q. Can a will that was never revoked be ruled valid for property that was quit claim deeded 2 years after said will?
- A: You need to retain counsel to look at all the facts. In Missouri, a will is only effective on the date of death (testamentary) over property left in the decedent's name alone on the date of death. Arguably if the parents quit claimed it to you they didn't mean to leave it subject to the will. The question is what is the nature of the "oral contract"?
