Trying to become a poa

My uncle needs a power of attorney

Holly T.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

A POA is best done through an attorney to ensure the verifying/interested parties are proper, the agreement includes what the principal wants, the principal is competent in case of a challenge and it's filed properly if necessary, for example if it will be used to transfer property. All persons should have a POA, HCPOA, Advanced Directives and Will. You can also pull the POA form out of the general statutes of NC. The form is included in the law.

Settlement And Release Agreement

Pennsylvania

Asked on Aug 1, 2022

Must I sign a family settlement release for my fathers estate in PA in order for the executor to distribute monies?

My fathers exectutor is ready to finalize the estate bank account and I received a "release" letter, must I sign it before money is distributed? (PA)

Ryan W.

Answered Aug 5, 2022

In Pennsylvania, probate estates are wrapped up after the executor provides the beneficiaries with an accounting. The purpose is for the beneficiaries to review what the executor did during the administration of the estate and have the opportunity to voice any objections he or she may have. The release that you received is fairly standard in the estate administration process. You are not required to sign the document. The estate can also be finalized by requesting an order of distribution from a judge. If you do not happen to take issue with anything the executor did, signing the release agreement will likely be more efficient.

Last Will and Testament

California

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

What happens if I die without a will?

As I have gotten older and accumulated assets, I have become increasingly aware of the importance of having a will in place. However, I have not yet taken the steps to create one, and I am curious about the potential consequences of dying without a will. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to understand what would happen to my estate and how my assets would be distributed in the event of my death without a will.

Matthew S.

Answered Apr 11, 2023

If you die without a will your assets will be distributed to your heirs pursuant to the intestacy statute for your state. However, if you use a will, you can control who gets your assets and can give assets to non-blood related persons who wouldn't otherwise be an heir.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

View Trustpilot Review

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

View Trustpilot Review

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
