Case #23-0050958

Proactive client seeks assistance with probating his mother’s estate. Client’s mother died intestate in 2021 and was predeceased by her husband, client’s stepfather. The couple owned their home as tenants by the entireties, and upon client’s stepfather’s death, 100% title was transferred to client’s mother by operation of law. Remaining heirs are client’s two sisters and one niece, the child of his predeceased sister. They have all signed renunciations, and client has taken them to the Register of Wills where they are saved in a preliminary case file to avoid expiration. The ultimate goal is to sign title of the family home into client’s name, so that he can participate in a home repair program. A volunteer is needed to help probate client’s mother’s estate, including transferring title to client and filing a Tangled Title Fund Application to cover probate and transfer taxes.
