QUESTIONS

  • My boyfriend was married to someone and had a baby with her. She has said before that he is not the father, but still came after him for child support. How do we go about getting a DNA test to see if he is actually the father?
  • Are there any tax consequences for the state return after a forclosure or short sale?
  • My husband and I have been married 30 years. In the divorce papers he filed I am to receive nothing. I want to fight for spousal maintenance. I only work part time and have for 20 years. I have osteo arthritis in my knees and it is difficult to for me to get around. What are my rights? Also, all the stress he has put me under made me have a minor heart attack a few months ago. What about medical. I know when the divorce is final it ends. I can't get it through my job. It's too expensive. What are my rights?
  • We test drove a used truck for sale (private seller). We gave the man $500 deposit. The next day, we discovered we couldn't obtain the rest of the money ($2700 total selling price) but he had already cashed the $500 check and said he has no legal obligation to give any of it back. Is he right?
  • My father recently died ( he was 92 yrs) He lived in Iowa and was in a Nursing home.He was a US Veteran, I was the rep Payee for his checking account, his only daughter, and his VA fiduary, only one to make his funeral arrangements and pay the mortuary. He had no will, do I need to file formal estate paperwork and all other documents since I am his heir ? I do not have the money to file.
  • Can i be emancipated if i dont have a legitimate job, but earn money every week?
  • We signed a year lease, Feb.2015. There was a note on our door, may 4th,2015 saying we haven't signed yet. We called the Apt. Mngr. and he looked it up on the computer and saw that we did sign a lease but the year was wrong on the lease. Instead of 2015-16 it said 2014-15 but it has our signatures and the right date of signing 2-28-15. Nobody caught that when we signed in Feb.He said to come in and resign.When we went yesterday to resign he said the rent also increased even though we were quoted the price in the lease in Feb. This seems unfair and wrong/illegal?Help appreciated.Thanks, Tom
