St. Louis workers are eligible for unemployment compensation if they are temporarily out of work through no fault of their own.  To determine whether an employee is temporarily out of work Missouri agencies look to the employee’s recent work history and earnings during a stretch of time called the “base period.” Only employees who have been working relatively recently can collect unemployment.

St Louis foreclosure activity in January 2016 was at the rate of 1 in every 1,533 households.  This foreclosure activity rate is down almost 16 percent from December and down over 25 percent (25.79%) from a year ago, according to the latest data from RealtyTrac.  Even with this recent downturn, there are still many foreclosure cases being filed in the state of Missouri.

When an individual has financial difficulties their monthly mortgage payment may be one of the bills that they are unable to pay.  A foreclosure is the process by which an individual’s rights to a property are forfeited because of a failure to pay the mortgage. It is important to speak to an experienced St. Louis foreclosure attorney even before that first monthly payment is missed in order to discuss possible options for avoiding foreclosure.

When a loved one dies and leaves a valid will they likely name an executor; someone to protect the deceased person’s property until all debts and taxes are paid and transfer the remaining assets to heirs.  Missouri law does not require an executor to be a legal expert, but they must use a high degree of honesty known as “fiduciary duty” which means to act in good faith and honesty on behalf of another person.

Undue influence is the misuse of one’s role and power to exploit the trust, dependence, and fear of another to deceptively gain control over that person’s decision in a particular matter. Missouri case law has articulated three (3) elements which usually must be present in order to find that undue influence has occurred: (1) a fiduciary or confidential relationship between the influencer and testator or settlor; (2) a substantial benefit to the influencer; and (3) facts from which undue influence may be inferred.

A Will is a legal paper that states who receives your property when you die but it is important to note that a Will does not avoid the necessity of probate and must be “probated” to have legal effect.  Many people prefer to pass some or all of their assets directly to their heirs without going through the probate process.  Although this is not always possible, there are some steps that Missouri residents can take to avoid probate.

Unfortunately, estate litigation is an inevitable part of many estates. When a decedent dies, the estate must usually pass through a formal legal process known as probate. The executor of the estate under the terms of a will must request that the court open a probate estate at which time the assets are accounted for and valued.  Any individual with a claim against the estate is given the opportunity to file a claim with the court.
