    Estate has unpaid taxes and potential lawsuit.

    Oops I guess I meant I live on Guam and we follow community property laws similar to California. And yes we pay local tax and we also pay tax to the irs it gets sent in through the mail. The tax debt is from filing joint returns and the only income was from my father though. Thanks for your answer

    Estate has unpaid taxes and potential lawsuit.

    My father was on a payment plan after he passed they interviewed my mother she doesn’t make enough for them to go after her I guess. She’s just getting by. The $20-30k would be coming from me. Plus whoever wins the suit gets attorneys fees reimbursed so if we lost we can add their fees to that.

    Like I said we don’t have a lot. The lawyer we spoke to wants $5k retainer and to be paid hourly. Throwing a possible $20-30k on possible legal fees is a huge deal for us, but It’s not impossible. It’s $3k to do probate so $8k just to start if we do probate.

    Estate has unpaid taxes and potential lawsuit.

    Also someone told me my mother has the right to go after the money directly through intestate succession, because it is held jointly with rights of survivorship and we are a community property state. what would happen in that situation? I know the taxes will not disappear, but I'm hoping my...

    GUAM Pretty sure some of you guys know me from my other posts. This one is related to my father passing away 2 years ago and my mother potentially filing a lawsuit on behalf of his estate. They filed jointly for most of their marriage. So long story short the lawsuit could be worth a large...

    There are supposedly two contracts one is for the services provided and the other is a NDA. I've only seen the NDA and it has a successor and assigns clause. For the NDA its to protect all the customers confidential information we come across while performing our jobs. Could a successor and...
