Q. My father is starting to lose his memory. I need him to place his house in a trust for me.
A: Capacity is an issue that can be raised to challenge whatever you do. Try to get a doctor to write that he has capacity to make a deed on the day you do the deed.
Q. Is a Heir Search required in NYC if we as the stepchildren are named in the will of our stepfather who came from Poland?
A: Even if there is a will, the next of kin must be cited, as the next of kin is a necessary party. Here, you do not know the next of kin, as it will likely be a cousin. Thus, the court is right. However, you can do your own search. Call the Polish consulate in NYC, and see if there are records you can access from here. If not, you are going to need a professional search but HeirSearch is not the only game in town.
Q. How do I create a motion to dismiss in NY based on a time lapse of 13 yrs (dormancy) with regards to a rental contract?
A: You did not state the reason for the failure of your defense, but you are not handling this correctly, and you should really talk to a lawyer if the sum being sought justifies it. You should answer to avoid default, and not re-make the same motion you already lost. Service issues are not relevant now, as you appeared in the case, as per your post.
