  • I am not married to my daughters father, we recently split due to domestic violence. I am talking with him and his lawyer to get a resolution before our temporary orders hearing. The only term we are not agreeing on is that I want to stipulate that my daughter and I can relocate to Colorado in a year. His attorney keeps saying the courts will not accept that even if we come to an agreement on everything else before our court date. I spoke to an attorney who told me the opposite. How do I word this to his attorney or is his attorney right?
  • I have rented a room in a house for the last 2 years. I have never had a lease or rules & regulations given to me either. Can my landlord tell me I can't have company over? Company is my kids, 41, 36 and 35
  • I currently own a home which I live in and have a tenant. There is no signed lease agreement, just a verbal month to month. He has not paid his rent and continues to give me the run around and has not been at the house since the 1st which is when rent is due. I have continually contacted him via text message and told him if he does not pay he leaves. He has promised everyday to pay and has not even come home. Last night he promised via text to pack his stuff and leave if I did not have the money by the end of the day yesterday. Can I just change the locks and pack his stuff?
  • I have a land contract on a mobile home but do not have the title. The current is in serious default (10 months). Do I foreclose, get a judgement on the loan or get lien? Is this something I can do or do I really need and attorney? If it matters the amount due is about $11,500. Thanks!
  • I am a 28 year old disabled man with a service dog and I live with 3 roommates whom I do not get along with. One of them (my ex) has threatened to kick me to the streets even though I have done nothing to warrant this. Can my roommates kick me out if I am on the lease? I pay my fair share of the rent, I have not done anything illegal, I have not done anything against my roommates to warrant being kicked out, and I have not broken any of the rules to be a tenant at the apartment complex I currently live in. What are my legal rights?
