160652 In re: Dennis 08/17/2017 In a prisoner's petition for change of name under Code 8.01-217(D), alleging religious reasons for the change, the circuit court abused its discretion in denying the application without a hearing.
The only factor statutorily relevant to determining the adequacy of the petitioner's reason for filing the application was the reason alleged.
First and foremost, revocable or irrevocable trusts in existence on January 1, 2009 are not invalidated by the ATC.
That does not mean that they may not be affected in some way.
They take force only after three months have elapsed from the date of that issue of the Acta unless they bind immediately from the very nature of the matter, or the law itself has specifically and expressly established a shorter or longer suspensive period (vacatio). Particular laws are promulgated in the manner determined by the legislator and begin to oblige a month after the day of promulgation unless the law itself establishes another time period. 9 Laws regard the future, not the past, unless they expressly provide for the past. 10 Only those laws must be considered invalidating or disqualifying which expressly establish that an act is null or that a person is unqualified. 11 Merely ecclesiastical laws bind those who have been baptized in the Catholic Church or received into it, possess the sufficient use of reason, and, unless the law expressly provides otherwise, have completed seven years of age. If they are equally particular or equally general, the decree later in time modifies the earlier to the extent that the later one is contrary to it.
