Q. what can i do about being billed for a court appearance that my lawyer did not attend?
A: I am not sure I understand the question. This is a strange happening indeed. I am sorry for your loss. Trust amendments are not typically filed in court. In addition, in the creation/modification of a trust there usually isn't court appearance either unless it was an irrevocable trust and you need the Court's authority to do it. Some relevant questions of whether the attorney acted inappropriately are: 1. Did you mother have a relationship with him prior? If she did, and she instructed him to change it so that he was the administrator and executor, then there might not be anything ethically wrong with it. Remember he was your mom's attorney and not yours. Although he should have let you know that he wouldn't make his appointment with you. That is just being courteous and polite. 2. Did your mom talk to you about any changes? Did she say anything at all about the status of her trust after she signed? If she thought she was signing one thing and she signed something else completely, there might be evidence of fraud. At any rate, the attorney should have had your mom explain the changes to you. This is not something I would feel comfortable doing personally. It has a taste of deception and when family is involved especially if they are close, it starts to look very inappropriate. I would try to gather as much facts as you could, and if you feel like the attorney acted against your mom's wishes, I would call the Utah State Bar and talk to them. I hope this helps.
Q. My boyfriend named me as primary beneficiary on a life insurance policy. How do I get a copy of the death certificate?
A: You can still obtain one for yourself while filling out the application. https://vitalrecords.utah.gov/wp-content/uploads/Death-Certificate-Request-Application.pdf In the applicant box you would check other, and put "beneficiary of life insurance" and attach a page from the life insurance contract listing you as the primary beneficiary. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. what other factors determine how much i would be entitled as far as my deceased father estate goes?
A: Hello, I feel like I missed the first half of the story, but here are some issues you will need to think through as well as some explanation of Utah Law. First, let's make sure that we are both understanding the language that we are using. When I say estate, I mean all property in the decedent's name at the time that he died. This does not include any property in a trust that he owns, or any property that was held in joint tenancy ( joint title where two or more people own it and the last remaining Survivor is entitled to the predeceased owners interest). With that being said, the highest priority beneficiary after legitimate creditors, taxes, and administration expenses Wendy's those specified in your father's Will if he had one. If you did not have one, then the remaining estate would pass according to the laws of intestacy ( statutory rules for distribution of a decedent's property if there is no will). The laws of intestacy state that first it would go to a surviving spouse or at least a good chunk of it would if there is one oh, and the remaining would be divided equally among your father's children and a surviving spouse if the surviving spouse is not also the biological mother of all of your father's children. In short, if your father's wife is also the mother to all of your father's children, then she is entitled to inherit all of the estate if there is no will. If she is not the biological mother to all of your father's children, then she would be entitled to roughly the first $100,000 + 1/3 of whatever is left over. And the remaining 2/3 leftover would be divided equally among your father's children. The first step would be to determine if there is any real estate in the estate or if the total sum of all other property in the estate values over $100,000. If neither of the above are true, there may not be a need to go through probate. The Next Step would decide whether probate is necessary because either it is a complex property ownerships, or whether there is likely to be contention. If either of those are true and even if it is a small estate, you may want to file a probate case from the beginning. Probate can be a complicated process depending on who is involved and if they are likely to fight or not. I would recommend talking to a probate attorney. I hope this helps.
