Legal Answers
868 Questions Answered
Q. Can my deceased daughter's boyfriend keep her ashes and urn and refuse to give them to her father or myself??
A: I am sorry for the loss of your daughter. The answer depends on if she executed a disposition of remains document or any other transfer on death document related to her bank accounts and vehicle.

You don't mention the age of her other children and whether you have custody. Texas does allow for Grandparent access; however, you will have to file suit in family court to pursue it. In order to obtain the property that would belong to her heirs, the heirs need to file an application in the appropriate probate court or someone that represents their estate if they are minors.

I wish you and her children the best.
Q. I want to leave everything to my wife. But it is a large estate.....$30 million or so. Is it all tax free to her?
A: I suggest you sit with an estate planning attorney as you may want to consider setting up a trust as well as other options. Texas does not have an inheritance tax; however the IRS does and that's where it can become complicated very quickly. Whether you are speaking of a few hundred thousand dollars or millions of dollars, I suggest sitting one on one with an experienced attorney to help you accomplish your wishes; please do not rely on the internet for your estate plan.
Q. All of the heirs to my Father's estate are listed on the Will, but not as an executor, what does this mean?
A: There is only one executor or co-executors and the heirs listed are most likely beneficiaries under the will. You will need to look carefully to see what section they are listed under.
