 The author Brigitte von Weiss of VON WEISS LAW OFFICE is an Easton MA estate planning and elder law attorney.   Website:  vonweisslaw.com  What do I get if my spouse dies without a Will? A preliminary issue is whether there is a valid and enforceable prenuptial agreement or separation agreement impacting the inheritance rights of the surviving spouse.  The balance of this blog assumes there is no such valid and enforceable prenuptial or separation agreement. The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012.   In the absence of a Will, § 2-102 of the MUPC provides that the surviving spouse is entitled to the entire estate in two circumstances.  The first circumstance is where there are no stepchildren or descendants of stepchildren, i.e., all the desce...

The author Brigitte von Weiss of VON WEISS LAW OFFICE is an Easton MA estate planning and elder law attorney.   Website:  vonweisslaw.com  I am often asked "How does my divorce affect my estate plan?"  The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012. Before the MUPC, Massachusetts law provided that divorce revoked the provisions in favor of a former spouse in a pre-existing Will (the former spouse was treated as having died first).  The net effect was that former spouse did not inherit directly under the Will and any nominations appointing the former spouse were void.  The prior law was sometimes problematic.  For example, under the old law, the stepchildren potentially could inherit (even though the former spouse did not) since the former spouse was ...

Website:  vonweisslaw.com  What happens if the will is older than the marriage?  The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012.  Before the MUPC, Massachusetts law provided that marriage invalidates a will in its entirety unless "it appears from the will that it was made in contemplation thereof."  Pretty simple and straightforward, right?    Under the new law, things are a bit more complex.  Under section 2-301 of MUPC, if a surviving spouse married the decedent after the decedent executed his or her final will, the surviving spouse receives a intestate share (what he or she would have gotten if no will) EXCEPT that the surviving spouse does not get an intestate share of those assets passing under the pre-marital will to the children of the deceden...

Website:  vonweisslaw.com The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012.  The MUPC contains certain family protection provisions meant to assist with the immediate support of surviving spouses and children. One such family protection provision is the exempt property statute (not to be confused with the discretionary family allowance). Under § 2-403(b) of the MUPC, the surviving spouse has the right to remain rent-free in the decedent’s house for six months after the decedent’s death.     Under § 2-403(a), the surviving spouse, or children if there is no surviving spouse, are entitled to up to $10,000 of exempt property from the decedent’s probate estate.   The $10,000 first comes from "household furniture, automobiles, furnishings, appliances and pe...

The author Brigitte von Weiss of VON WEISS LAW OFFICE is an Easton MA estate planning and elder law attorney. Website:  vonweisslaw.com Why is it that some nursing homes mislead elders about MassHealth (also known as Medicaid)?  Recently, a nursing home told my client (let's call her Mrs. Elder) not to apply for MassHealth (also known as Medicaid) for her husband because if she did apply for MassHealth, the MassHealth agency would put a lien on her house.  This is misleading.  The MassHealth regulations specifically set forth that a MassHealth lien cannot be placed when there is a spouse living in the house.  Because Mrs. Elder is a spouse living in the house, a lien could not be placed on Mr. and Mrs. Elder's home.  Luckily, Mrs. Elder ignored the nursing home and came to see me for as...

Website:  vonweisslaw.com The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012. Before the MUPC, Massachusetts law provided that a child not included in the will (“omitted child”), or their descendant(s) in certain circumstances, may elect (by filing a timely claim) to take an intestate share (what he or she would have gotten if no will), regardless of whether the child was born before or after the execution of the will, unless (1) the omitted child (or their descendant(s) in certain circumstances) was "provided for by the testator during his life time" or (2) "it appears that the omission was intentional and not occasioned by accident or mistake[.]"  M.G.L. c. 191, § 20.  The new law pertaining to an omitted child, §2-302 of the MUPC, applies only to a ch...

A Randolph MA home buyer should receive a brochure, Home Inspectors Facts for Consumers Sheet, at the time of the signing of the first written contract to purchase from the Seller or Seller's agent.  Since MA Home Inspector licensing in 2001, a consumer must have a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement with  a Real Estate Broker or Salesperson before the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson can refer a home inspector. Without a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement, the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson may only refer the buyer to the list of all MA Home Inspectors from the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Home Inspectors. Finding your Randolph MA Home Inspector from the list of all MA home inspectors can be quite a challenge.  An internet search for "Randolph MA Home Inspector...

All Can Eat, a Randolph, MA bakery and cafe opened this month to cater to people with food allergies. The cakes, brownies and muffins lining the shelves of the bakery are free of gluten, nut, soy, sesame and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and many products are also free of dairy, sugar, egg, and yeast. The owner, George Moufarrej, said the rise in celiac disease prompted him to open his unique bakery.  Those with a gluten allergy or intolerance,  often in the form of celiac, cannot eat the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.  The bakery has so far been a success.  Many customers drive 1 -2 hours to stock up on goods.
