QUESTIONS

  • My niece found out her parents are doing meth and left her home to live with her girlfriends grandmother but her parents forced her to go back home. My niece is 17, has a 3.86 GPA, a job and over 180 hours of volunteer work at the hospital. She has goals to become a photo journalist. She does not need to be in a "meth" environment. Not first time for parents. How can I get her out of that environment?
  • My Divorce Attorney has lost over 500 pages of my families financial records.I have been closing accounts, fear of foul play. Should he be held accountable - what can I do, as he chose to ignore it.
  • If the divorce decree states that the father is responsible for dental costs for our children, must he carry dental insurance?? If not and he claims he is unable to pay the 2/3 of he medical/dental that is not covered by insurance what action can I take to get him to pay?
  • I have a renter who gave verbal notice 30 days ago. They do not have a written lease. They promptly disappeared and left all of their possessions in the premises. They are hoarders! What process/action do I have to take before I can clean up the property and remove their possessions (i.e. trash/donations).
  • My mom was diagnosed with dementia and she received a civil summons from a credit card company. Mom only receives social security and has a very small monthly pension which are put into her checking account. She also has a small IRA from her former 401k which she is having to use for daily care services. This will most likely be depleted soon. Given her current state, we are unsure about what to do. Can you provide some direction? I have read they can put a lien on her checking account. Thank you.
  • who is responsible for vandalized property, the tenant or landlord ?
  • I need to know where to start in the legal prosecution of a gentleman that had a signed contract with me to install security cameras for men and I paid him upfront for the equipment and then he disappeared. How would I start legal actions against him. I have a police report and a signed contract from him.
  • Where can I change might son birth certificate
  • I have had my brother in law and his wife here at my residence that I am renting for seven months. They were told repeated times to start paying a specific amount of money a month and ignored my requests. They chose not to sign a written agreement and still refuse to pay. They are not on the lease either. I want to know if I have grounds to give them a 5 or 30 day notice to vacate. And if I can mail it, as they are staying with someone else for a couple months, or if I have to hand it to them personally. Thank you
  • I am disabled and receiving food stamps (SNAP). I submitted a medical expense list with receipts. DES stated that they do not count dental or vision expenses (eye exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, dental exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canals) or prescription medications which are not paid for every month. They did not address the cost of medical transportation (gas to get to medical appointments). I believe that these expenses should be counted as they are out of pocket medical expenses, and the total should be divided by the number of months in the eligibility period. Help!
