Q: 

can a quit claim deed be filed after death?

A:  quote:Originally posted by florence:My grandfather quit claimed his house to dad with rights of survivorship, (when he was visiting For Christmas) it was notarized with witnesses. Neither one of them had it filed, and now my grandfather passed away. Can it be filed now? Or will my dad have to go through probate? Grandfather left him the house in his will, THANKS My response: Once Grandfather signed the quitclaim, at that very moment in time, he transfered or ''released'' to your Dad (the transferee) whatever present right or interest Grandfather (the grantor) had in the described property. Unlike a grant deed, a quitclaim deed carries with it no express or implied covenants. [City of Manhattan Beach v. Super.Ct. (Farquhar) (1996) 13 Cal.4th 232, 239, 52 Cal.Rptr.2d 82, 86] The property was...

Q: 

Can an estate's funds be loaned to a beneficiary?

A:  George W wrote:>> Can an estate''s funds be loaned to a beneficiary? A widowed mother has inherited all her deceased husband''s estate with all probate being complete. She leaves all her estate to her two children, son and daughter. The son is assigned to be the executor and the daughter is executor if the son can''t be. The brother and sister are very close. There''s no conflict over the terms of the will - a simple 50-50 split. The son has already been approved by local probate court as the executor. There are only taxes to pay and some minor expenses. The mother kept meticulous records and set everything up to be as simple as possible for the son and daughter. She also used a good attorney for assistance with her will. The daughter is married. The daughter and her husband want to...

Q: 

Can medical exam be submitted at interview?

A:  I am about to make an application for AOS and have a few questions. I am married to a USC and originally came over on the VWP intending to return before the 90 days. Me and my wife now wish to stay over here due to a change in circumstances. My questions about the application are: 1) Can the medical exam form be submitted at the interview and not with the I485 and other forms? 2) If there is a problem with any of my application forms, will the whole application be rejected and returned or will they simply write to me asking me for whatever is incomplete? Thanks Paul :) 1a: Yes 1b: Generally no 2a: possible. 2b. possible. I am about to make an application for AOS and have a few questions.

Q: 

Can Salaried Teachers be docked?

A:  Salaried is only a pay method and means nothing in and of itself. What matters if if you are exempt or non-exempt. If you are non-exempt you have no legal expectation of being paid when you do not work, with VERY limited exceptions which do not apply here, unless you are being paid under the so-called "fluctuating work week method" which is rarely the case and I understand (though I may be mistaken) is not even legal in all states. If you are exempt you can be docked in full day increments under certain limited circumstances; however, you can only be docked in partial day increments if it is the first or last week of work, or if FMLA is involved. However, please note that I am only talking about docking PAY. In all states except California and even sometimes in California, it is...

Q: 

Can I drop my cell phone contract in California yet?

A:  You CAN. But you probably shouldn't. So far Judge Sabraw's ruling was tentative and she has given Sprint Nextel's attorneys the opportunity to file a rebuttal before she considers making it permanent. That could take months. And once the judgment is final, there's probably 30 days to file an appeal. Once an appeal is filed it postpones the enforcement of the judgment and that could take years. "it seems every time I cough, those rascals extend it." Then stop coughing and start paying attention to the terms and conditions of your contract with regards to cancellation and follow them to the letter next time there's a cancellation opportunity. "I am curious after reading how California law has decided cell phone contracts are...

Q: 

If you have already completed the punishment (diversion) for a charge can your case be appealed and retried?

A:  No. Many people don''t understand the process of an appeal. The family would not be able to appeal the sentence, even if they disagreed with it originally. Once the DA took over it was not their case anymore. They are not the deciders on the punishment, so they have no grounds to say your punishment was too lenient. The family member would have no grounds for an appeal. An appeal can only be granted when a person''s rights were violated, there was a problem with how the case was handled or new evidence can be found. With these the outcome of the trial or plea would have to have come out differently. You have nothing to worry about. No. Once the sentence was entered, that''s it. Richard Not likely. Once you''ve paid your dues, that''s it. Good luck....

Q: 

Can a man who only wanted sex be your friend after you say no?

A:  he''s selfish, and when he didn''t get what he wanted when he wanted it he was willing to completely cut u out of his life. not a person who would ever be there for u, or have your back if u needed a friend. i would be glad he put up a wall. he is most likely embarrassed because things got very close without becoming intimate. Now he has to see you all the time and feels uncomfortable. It will get better but for now it is awkward. Give him time. I don''t mean to lecture but dating at work can be dangerous & affect your job so be careful What don''t you get? he is not interested since he did''nt get in your pants, I would blow him off. Why would you want to be friends with a walking penis who only wants you for your body? Take a hint and treat him like a fellow employee, you owe him...

Q: 

Can Disability Check be Garnished?

A:  “Three years ago my husband, a diabetic, who already had heart abnormalities, was diagnosed with cancer. Following a very long and very expensive course of treatment we were left with devastating medical bills. I started to send small payments to try to at least appease the hospital√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs collections department. Some time later, due to side effects of Chemotherapy, my husband√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs heart problems worsened and he again underwent treatments that were very expensive. My husband would never get well enough to return to work, so he was put on permanent disability. This reduced our income tremendously. Although we were insured, at first privately and then through Medicare, between the medications, the staggeringly expensive chemotherapy treatments, and five surgeries, which included...
