Power of Attorney

Tennessee

Asked on Apr 21, 2022

Do I need a lawyer to get a power of attorney

My uncle is an elderly man and his wife passed away in January of this year. She did everything as far handling all of the important things. He doesn't understand a lot of things. He asked me if I would take over everything for him. So I think I need to get a power of attorney to be able to do tnat.

Rebecca R.

Answered May 3, 2022

A power of attorney allows you to make decisions and dispose of property, it does sound like one might be helpful in your situation. When an attorney writes up the power of attorney, you have a range of permissions to cover all the needs of your individual situation. You’ll want to be sure that you have the ability to write checks, etc. Additionally, the power of attorney will be useful if other family members challenge your decisions or actions. Drafting the document is a fairly straightforward process, and most attorneys will bill 1-2 hours depending on whether you need additional documents for healthcare and estate decisions.

Need Will or Trust

Married must include both have children from previous marriage.

T. Phillip B.

Answered Nov 30, 2021

Hi. I'm not sure I understand your question. Everyone should have a will regardless of whether you have a trust. The question is whether you need a trust. A lot of that has to do with avoiding probate or some other potential uses depending on the goals and needs. But a typical family would use a trust to better organize everything and control distribution while avoiding going through the court process called probate.

Quitclaim Deed

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 1, 2023

Taxes related to quitclaim deed?

I recently inherited a property from a family member. I was given a quitclaim deed transferring the title from them to me. I am trying to understand my tax liabilities related to this transfer of ownership. I am not sure if there are tax implications that I need to be aware of and I was hoping to get advice from a lawyer on how to proceed.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 30, 2023

A person who inherits property might be subject to taxes. This includes when the person receives a quitclaim deed for the property. However, the person's tax liabilities will ultimately depend in part on the location of the property itself. For legal guidance on the tax implications of inheriting North Carolina property, you might consider consulting with a knowledgeable North Carolina estate and tax planning attorney. Good luck!

Employment Contract

Florida

Asked on Apr 12, 2023

What's vacation time in an employment contract?

I recently accepted a new job and I was provided an employment contract to review. In the contract, there is a section about vacation time, but it is not very clear. I'm trying to understand what vacation time is included in the contract and what the expectations are for taking time off. I want to make sure I have a clear understanding of my rights and responsibilities regarding vacation time before I sign the contract.

Diane D.

Answered May 10, 2023

You can create your own will. However, having an attorney draft it for you will ensure that your wishes are carried out in all circumstances. Doing it yourself without having any experience may cause many problems after your demise.
