Can I buy my parents' house in a way that makes financial sense?

My parents have always struggled financially, living under crippling debt and never able to have an income able to match the bills, the biggest of which is their mortgage. I hate to see how difficult this situation is for my dad, and I want to help out for the sake of his stress level, and also because once he retires in a few years the math truly does not work out in their favor. I've been thinking of buying some land anyway, so I'm wondering if there is any feasible way to make this work for both my parents and me. [more inside]

can gain access to what my father left behind?

some years back my father was re-married before his death. my father did not have a will in place and i am his only child. after his death the women he married ended contact with me sharing none of my fathers belongings etc. at the time i felt wronged, and as a young man i could not afford legal representation. many years (over ten) have gone by, and i have mostly moved on with my life trying not to think of these events, but there still is a bit of anger inside. as his only child and living blood relation is there any way legally that i can gain access to as much as old photographs, clothing, or whatever small momentos that remain in her custody?

"We're giving it all to them, but don't worry, they have your best interests at heart!"

My aged parents are planning to cash in all their stocks and put them into an account in my two brothers' names to reduce the amount of money payable in fees to the government upon their demise. They have told me, more or less, not to worry, and not to doubt the good intentions of my siblings. How to respond to this? [more inside]

Can I get a loan against my inheritance?

My father died in February and I have an inheritance coming, probably around the end of the year, but at this moment that isn't soon enough to keep the wolves from the door. It seems silly that I know I have this mid-five-figures amount coming, and may become homeless before I get it. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can get some breathing room? For instance, is it possible to get a short-term loan using the inheritance as collateral? Any other creative ideas?

What do I ask the money guy?

I have learned that I will inherit, with my sibling, a good sized estate including a house and some investments and a few trusts. These assets also come, if I want, with a "money guy" who was my parent's money guy. I have met this man and he has helped me with some basic early estate stuff and has indicated he'd like to work with me. I have a meeting with him and my sibling next week and I'd like to make sure I'm prepared and know what to ask him and could use some help generating questions. [more inside]

How should I set up this trust

What are some ways to structure a trust? I'm setting up a trust so that if I die, my child would not have a sudden, relatively large windfall. I've got life insurance, 401k and quite a bit of equity in a house, and at this time, I think it would be problematic. [more inside]

Inheritance v. Debt - What to do?

A few months ago, my father passed away, and it turns out he has left me and my two siblings each approximately $20,000. My problem is this: I have huge unpaid medical bills from the past three years - in excess of $100,000, and they are totally in default, as my ordinary income is not quite enough for me to live on without the occasional assistance of my roommate and my siblings.

Where to invest during a financial meltdown?

I recently inherited about $100k. I'm pretty dumbfounded. This is the largest amount of money I will probably ever have to figure out what do with, so I want to be safe and smart and invest in the long term. I have no debts. I'm 30 years old and single. I know no one has a crystal ball, but what are your best guesses for what I should do with this money in light of our current financial meltdown? (I haven't even deposited the check yet... my bank is Wamu and I wasn't sure if it would fold).

I wanna be a woman of independent means... for more than a few months.

Okay, so let's say you're a broke, middle-aged single female creative professional who infamously sucks with anything involving numbers. You do have expensive tastes, but you're generally quite frugal and like to shop at the 99¢ Store & swap meets. Even so, much to your own annoyance, you have just never done *well* with money when you've had it or ever done much grown up "long-term life planning"... but now you're about to come into a one-time windfall (possibly a six to seven figure sum in all). Oh Lordy. Time to grow up. [more inside]

Do I risk it?

I'm receiving a sizable inheritance in the form of stock from a deceased relative. However, there's fairly good evidence that the person who's managed the relative's affairs all these years (due to this relative being incapable of managing their own affairs) has intentionally sold a vast majority of that stock because they didn't want to draw down their own inheritance. If I contest this, though, there's a clause in the will that cuts my inheritance to $1. Do I take the stock that's offered me, or should I risk it on recovering the rest? [more inside]
