- Q. Can the family of an probate estate only hire one probate lawer and does he only represent the executor only?
- A: Yes, many probates in Oregon are completed with only one attorney representing the executor (Personal Representative or "PR" in Oregon) and assisting the PR through the probate process. Many times the family is involved in hiring the attorney and the attorney will communicate with the family throughout the probate process as long as there is no conflict of interest in doing so. Keep in mind, the attorney in this scenario only represents the PR. The attorney does not represent the devisees, family or any other interested party to the estate. Interested parties should consult their own attorney if a conflict or dispute arises.
- Q. In my will am I allowed to request for my body to not be viewed? Then cremated and disposed of without anyone getting it
- A: Yes. Under Oregon law any person of sound mind who is age 18 or older may direct the disposition of his or her own remains, either by completion of a signed instrument or by prearrangement with any licensed funeral service practitioner. ORS 97.130(1). Putting these instructions in your Will is permissible, including whether or not you want your body viewed.
- Q. Would I inherit my husband's rental properties (purchased via 1031 exchange after we married) if he expires?
- A: Both you and your husband should have updated your Wills after getting married. Real property doesn't automatically pass to another unless it is titled correctly to do so ("right of survivorship", "tenants by the entirety", Transfer on Death Deed, etc.). If you are left out of your spouses Will, you do have a right to a spouse's elective share, which would give you a percentage of the estate (see ORS 114.600–114.725). However, it is highly recommended you and your spouse avoid the elective share situation and simply update your Wills to reflect your current wishes.
