3 Questions Answered

Q. Can a trustee use funds from an irrevocable trust to create a new irrevocable trust for a different beneficiary?
A: This can be considered a difficult and loaded question without the benefit of looking at the language in the trust. As a general answer, I will say that this is possible. It is called decanting. If you are concerned about the trustee you may reach out to the trustee or consult with an attorney so they can review the trust for you.
Q. What rights do I have as a heir so that everything doesn't go to my half siblings when my step mother passes?
A: I would like to express my condolences for the loss of your father. From the information you provided, I assume that your Father did not have a will at the time of his death. As such, in GA, his assets would be divided between your step-mother and his children with the step-mother taking no less than 1/3. If there are two children then each of you and the spouse get 1/3. If there are three children - then the three children would split 2/3 and the spouse would get 1/3. Therefore, if no one has probated your Father's estate this would need to be done immediately. Once your step-mom passes, how her assets pass is up to her. If she has a will, it will go according to her will. If she does not have a will, her assets will go to her children. If you do not probate your Father's estate this can make probating of her estate messy and difficult. I would suggest you consult with an attorney for follow-up on this issue.
Q. I was one day late giving answer to the eviction. I emailed the court yesterday on the final day to let them know I was
A: This is a difficult time. Under Georgia law, when someone files a dispossessory action against you, you have 7 days to file an answer from the date it is served (service may be posted on your door). If you do not file the answer within the seven (7) days the landlord can get an writ against you immediately; however, Georgia does not allow self-evictions. Therefore, although the landlord can get the writ the writ still has to be executed. Although you may not have a remedy to stay in the property you may have a separate civil action against the landlord if you incurred damages.
