QUESTIONS

  • I Am 16 years old and i have a job at bojangles. My parents is in charge of my bank account so they have access to my money at will. When i get into trouble they empty out my bank account without me knowing and sometimes they dont even tell me. Is that legal for them to take my money that i have worked hard for.
  • My father passed away, I'm named the executor of his estate. I currently do not have a will in place for myself. Should I get a will prior to the estate being finalized? In the event that I die before my fathers estate is settled, could I leave what would be my share to another family member?
  • I have an overpayment for SSI and I do not see a link for this specific area. I want to apply using the website and I do not really see an application for what I'm applying for.
  • My roof is caving in,in the kitchen. I have a lease for a year. Can the landlord decide the damage is to severe and just kick us out
  • We had an installer for a cable company in our house. My dog broke through the gate and bit his pants which scraped his leg. No puncture through the skin, no bleeding. Not trying to minimize what happened. It was scary. He put in a claim with his workmans comp. Now the Workmans Comp insurance company is sending us notices that we are responible to re-emburse them. The notice says "Medical Lein" Is this legal? They are being paid by the company and they also want to collect from us? The letter says I should submit a claim to my home owners insurance. Help? Thank you, J
  • if you break into a unoccupied building to sleep is it burglary or trespassing
  • Ok so I went with my stepdad to file my taxes I had it deposited into his account so I would be able to buy a car and wouldn't spend the money. So now comes the time I've found a car he is now telling me I can't have my money. Can I press charges on him or would I be able to get my money back somehow
  • My ex boss and I had a disagreement about a verification issue through email. She was very rude and disrespectful. The following morning my husband who is her current employee called me to tell me that she cc'd him in his email the conversation. Is this a privacy breech? Although, he is my husband, he is a current employee and I am not. This is second time this has happened. The first time with a different employee. Do I have any legal rights here?
  • My husband and I are going through a divorce due to domestic violence. He has pleaded guilty on the aggravated assault on my daughter (not his child) however did not plea guilty to the assault on me. Either way does his criminal case effect custody (for our common child) in any way due to the nature of the crime?
  • If i'm emancipated am I aloud to live with someone and pay rent to them? or do I have to live alone and can I receive help from someone who is not a parent or guardian
