QUESTIONS

  • I am living in my boyfriend's mothers condo and was supposed to be the only one living here but I let a friend of ours move in on the grounds he would pay 100 a week and pay for cable internet and phone. He's been here about a month and up until this last Friday had been paying rent on time. Last night we got into an altercation and he got physical with me so I am getting a restraining order against him. If we don't have any written agreement and I get this order against him how long does he have to move out?
  • im 17 years old and a few weeks ago my mother kicked me out. i had one of my friends there to witness, and her mom. now my mom is wanting me to go back, but do i have the legal right not to? its a very unstabkle home, ive been forced to live with her since my father died but now i cant take it anymore. our fights scare me and often have gotten physical since i was 14. Do i have any rights here? im not neccisarily looking into emancipation but id like to have gaurdianship switched to someone i trust.
  • I am the president of my condominium complex and would like to collect unpaid home owner's association dues (upwards of $2,000) on a home which has been foreclosed upon. Who is responsible for payment and what is the recommended course of action to collect?
  • I live in a place that was built in the 60s and the plumbing is still the old school piping (not plastic) but our toilet is brand new. My sister put a baby wipe down the toilet and it plugged up the piping. The plumber came out and said normally a wipe is fine to flush but because the piping is ancient you can't. So it cost $200 to fix the problem and our landlord handed us the bill. Is this right? Shouldn't they be paying for this?
  • Where cam I find online "Respondent" forms for a dissolution of marriage petition?
  • My husband passed away three months ago. The insurance company requested me to furnish appointment of guardianship to release the benefit of my daughter (under 18) under the Group Term Life Insurance. What should I do?
  • does a landlord have the right to show favor toward one tenant over another?
  • Can an HOA stop or fine a person for using a motorcycle stating that we are creating noise pollution? The motorcycle is my main form of transportation to work. I didn't see anything about use of a motorcycle during certain hours.
  • My 36 year old daughter died recently in a car crash. I have had to make all funeral arrangements, so sent my ex-husband the bill for him to pay HALF. He is bulking at paying it. We are both next of kin, do I have to pay the whole $7500 myself, or do I have any recourse to make him own up to his responsibilities to his deceased daughter?
  • I have been living in my apartment for almost a year now. Three months sicnce i moved in i discovered bed bugs. In May 2016 they came to exterminate. I have not seen any bed bugs til recencently. I went to the office in January 2017 and told them they i still have bed bugs in my apt. They are trying to charge me 300 for coming out to exterminate again, are they allowed to do so? What can i do about this situation and who can i talk to?
