QUESTIONS

  • My mother is 85 and being treated by a naturopathic doctor. My sister and I are concerned that the care she is getting is harming her overall health. We have contacted the Naturopathic Physician Medical Board to file a complaint. They are willing to move forward and subpoena her medical records for review. The problem is that they say there is no way to keep this physician from mentioning it to our mother. We feel that our mother puts an abnormal amount of "faith" in this physician and that she has been, for lack of a better word, "brainwashed" into believing that he can do no harm. We want to proceed without fear that he will convince my mother that we are "the bad guys." What do we need to do to proceed without fear that he will discuss this with our mother? Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  • Is there a statue of limitations on custody papers? Can they be ammended at any time? is there a penalty for not seeing your child for over a year? I have attempted to see my son many many times but his father is not enforcing the custody papers. Do I have legal action against that?
  • My niece used her grandfather's SSN and DOB and baby's SSN and DOB to obtain loans from a payday loan place online. She did not repay the loans and they went to collections. The collection agency called her grandfather to collect. In order for the debt to be deleted from her grandfather, he had to file a police report. What is the possibility of my niece being charged with identity theft and or fraud? What would the possible sentence be?

  • I was renting a trailer for over a year and about 8 months ago I started getting sick. I moved bedroom furniture and discovered mold on the wall. I immediately moved out but had to leave 2 beds, couches, pillows, comforters, etc. My daughter and I ended up on my moms floor with no pillows or blankets so I asked for $200 of my security deposit back and was told I had to sign a waiver before I received my money. Before I moved in a pipe had burst and was fixed by the maintenance man who came in and told me the mold was probably in the walls the whole time. Is there anything I can do?
  • I am 80 years old. An office of the law hit my car and then tried to blame it on me, He lost it and screamed at me, called me names and I consider that Elder Abuse. Am I right? He was very mean and I had done nothing to deserve being treated that was Thank you
  • Our landlord overlooked a 4% increase in rent over the past two years and has issued an invoice for the past amount. Keep in mind he has issued invoices each month in an amount which we paid. Is the landlord allowed to charge an amt greater than the monthly invoices (ratification).
  • My husband wants to adopt my 4 year old daughter who's father abandoned her from day 1. Is there a way to have her biological father ordered to pay back child support for the 4 years and to be able to terminate his rights so my husband can adopt her? Or will I only be able to do the termination and adoption?
