Your question is unclear.  If you are a beneficiary of the policy, then you deal directly with the insurance.  If there is no beneficiary, and the estate is the beneficiary, you need to file papers in Surrogate's Court.  The lawyer misled you. There is nothing preventing you from being the administrator from Florida, and you likely never would have had to go to NY.  You should not have signed the form.... Read More

How do I apply for Social security disability

Answered 14 hours ago by attorney Terry Lynn Garrett   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Social Security Disability
If you have paid into the Social Security system, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in an amount equivalent to your Social Security retirement benefits and, once you have received it for 24 months, Medicare.   If you have not, or if your SSDI does not equal the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) amount ($771 in 2019) and you are not able to engage in "substantial gainful employment" (earning at least $1,229/month in 2019), you may also qualify for that.  In Texas, one dollar of SSI qualifies your for Medicaid.   It is not clear which you applied for or what you mean by "regular" and "disability" benefits.   In general, the key to obtaining Social Security benefits is to thoroughly document your condition, respond promptly, and repeatedly appeal. ...

If your former spouse had a Will, he could have left everything to his widow.  He could also have named her the beneficiary on his life insurance policy. If your former spouse did not have a Will, his widow is entitled to some things and, if there are children from a prior relationship, they are entitled to some things. The estate should be probated, whether in a court proceeding or through an Affidavit of Small Estate.  Contact a local probate attorney.   It is really none of your business what the widow does or where she does it.  She is entitled to apply for citizenship.  ...

Those are actually two much more difficult questions to answer than you might think, especially if the conviction happened over 18 years ago. The best I can tell you, I'm afraid, is to call around for appellate / postconviction attorneys who provide free initial consultations, so they can get the details necessary to discuss what options your loved one still has. Best of luck to you and your family.... Read More
