QUESTIONS

  • We're renting a home and have 9 months left in our 12 month lease. We just found out the property foreclosed and the home sold. We've been offered money to leave in 30 days. We are protected under the Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act, and can stay for the duration of our lease. We are willing to leave in 60-90 days, to give us time to find another rental. If the PTFA expires on 12/31/14 are we still protected on 1/1/15? Can they give us more time but then come back on Jan. 1st and evict us? Are we protected past the expiration of the act because we signed our lease before the foreclosure?

  • I had a baby in October 2016, the father and I both signed acknowledgment of paternitynand the birth certificate. We are not, nor have we ever, been married. I have my daughter full time, and we aren't doing anything about custody or in the court system. The only times he's seen his daughter is when I pick him up for visits that we've scheduled.. I recently received a job offer in another state, along with acceptance to a school for nursing. I have family there as well. My question is this- am I able to move with my child out of state? Would it be considered parental kidnapping?
  • I am a disabled Veteran receiving Disability Compensation. I married a foreign national who continues to live in her country with no intentions of relocating to the United States, nor I to her country. I have submitted an application two years ago reguesting she be add to my disability compensation award as my spouse which would increase my award amount. Recently, in a conversation with a VA REP via telephone I was advised my request would be denied as my foreign born wife does not have a SSN. I have never heard of a claim being denied for this reason, is it true?
