Q & A Q & A Q & A
Probate, Trusts & Wills

 

Probate is the process of proving a will is valid and thereafter administering the estate of a dead person according to the terms of the will. It is a judicial act or determination of a court having competent jurisdiction establishing the validity of a will.​

A trust is an entity which owns assets for the benefit of a third person, called the beneficiary. 

A will a legal document used to distribute personal property, real property, money, and particular items to the intended beneficiaries. A will helps you protect items of family or sentimental value from being sold in the estate administration process. 

Bankruptcy Law

 

A federal system of statutes and courts which permits persons and businesses which are insolvent (debtors) or (in some cases) face potential insolvency, to place his/her/its financial affairs under the control of the bankruptcy court. The procedure is that when the debtor's debts exceed his/her/its assets or ability to pay, the debtor can file a petition with the bankruptcy court for voluntary bankruptcy or the debtor's unpaid creditors can file an "involuntary" petition to force the debtor into bankruptcy, although voluntary bankruptcy is far more common.

Some of the defenses to liability for personal injury include intervening causes, pre-existing condition, and assumption of the risk.
