QUESTIONS

  • My husband obtained a new job out of town. We asked the property owner if we can break lease and forfeit all deposits. She says they don’t allow breach and we are responsible for the duration of the lease. We need to move but can’t afford to rent two houses. What can we do?
  • I have been evicted. I have 21 days to get out belongings can my landlord start moving in RVs and hook in my water andand my electric to his RVs while we are still moving our belongings
  • I have been employed at the same job for 9 years. Can my employer ask my age? Ask if I'm going to retire? Ask if I filed for Social Security? Ask how much I will be receiving every month then cut my hours from 40 per week to 24 per week? Tell me my job is guaranteed to the end of the year and then it depends if he will keep me. I have over 24 years experience and he was going to lay me off and keep the person in their 30's who has 5 years experience because they made $6,000 less than me. Can he do this since I'm a senior citizen?
  • There was a pipe leaking by my parking spot for the last couple months. My water/sewer/trash Bill almost doubled for the last couple months. We pay w/s/t with our rent when it is due but we get a separate w/s/t bill and it shows that for almost 2 years my w/s/t was roughly the same until last month. The complex gets one bill and divides it by common area the apts pay the rest is divided to the residents. I believe the complex wasn't paying for their leaking pipe they were dividing it amongst the apt units. Can they legally do that?
  • does a landlord have the right to show favor toward one tenant over another?
  • I'm a victim of fraud, conversion, assault and battery, mental, verbal, financial, and elderly abuse. The defendant is sue able. What kind of lawyer would take a case like this? My case doesn't qualify for legal aide, because, it is an Intentional Tort. Is it possible to sue the abuser without an attorney? Hiring a lawyer is not an option, because, I can't afford it. My abuser put me out of business and destroyed all my property. Who gives free legal advice? Do any attorneys specialize in Narcsisstic Personality Disorders?
  • recently was given a Chapter 7 discharge, but Mortgage lender will not give me another loan modification because of income is not sufficient enough. I am behind in Mtg payments can I file a Chapter 13 to get caught up on delinquent mtg payments.
  • I WANT TO GET A DIVORCE BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN STATIONED IN OKINAWA JAPAN WITHOUT HER FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS AND SHE PLAYS ALL THESE STUPID GAMES AND I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT WE ARE TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEOPLE AND I CANNOT CONTINUE SERVING IN OUR MARINE CORPS WITH THIS PROBLEM. WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND ME SOME INFO THAT WOULD BENEFIT MY SITUATION.
  • My son is supposed to receive money when he is 18 from my brothers passing. Is there a way I can make it that he doesn't get it till he turns 25 and has a high school diploma due to him not being mature and dropping out of school and just relying on this money?
  • My friend's wife passed away back on February this year, and had a life insurance policy for $20,000.00. He is been calling and the answer is that they still investigating her claim. She died of Heart related illness. My friend does not want to hire a lawyer for that amount of life insurance. Is there any way that he can put pressure to the insurance company? Is there something your organization can do to help? He is willing to pay a moderate fee to accelerate the process?
