QUESTIONS

  • I have been in a domestic violence situation for 9 years. We had 3 kids out of wedlock and later on married. He is on the birth certificate but there is no court custody in place. He is also on the child abuse and neglect registry for failing to supervise my daughter properly and has domestic violence charges on his record, I was the victim. Can I relocate to another state with our children legally and not tell him?
  • How much time does a landlord have to repair a heater in an apartment complex in the winter?
  • what is the time line for eviction. does it ever go thru a court before the sheriff comes knocking? I still have the title to the land, the warranty deed.
  • I am 21 years old, pregnant and have a 8 month old baby. I pay rent, but have no job and i am receiving food stamps monthly with cash assistance for 3 months. My 3 month period ends this July. I want to apply for monthly cash assistance so my question is : if my baby's father gives me $60 a week would I still need to put him under child support in order to receive cash assistance? Thank you for reading
  • How long can the judge hold a person for being incompetent? No pend charges as a supreme court clear all cases
  • My father died in March & mother in June. We have found that dad had some life insurance through USPO with no beneficiary designated. They want to pay to my mom's estate but there is no estate. She had assets under $10,000 and no real property. I found the small estate affidavit. There are three surviving children, 1 deceased with 2 children. I assume we all need to fill out an affidavit? One of the grandchildren is still a minor. Who fills out his?
  • I was living at my father's house with my family lease and rent free. There was a fire and everything was destroyed. He has 20000 in personal property damage coverage. The insurance company is refusing to pay for our belongings because they said he isn't residing there. If he is receiving mail there and has a utility on in his name at that address and the bill is mailed to him at the same address is that considered as him residing there?
  • The property management company was aware that there is a mentally ill and violent criminal in our condo complex. I did not know this. Can I legally get out of my lease because they did not divulge this information? No one is safe here, he's threatening people's lives, is in and out of court. Thank you
