QUESTIONS

  • My wife and her almost 21-year-old sociopath son have made my life intolerable. I want to leave. Other than my mortgage and appliances that I am contractually responsible for, do I have to maintain a house that I am not living in?
  • I live in a mobilehome park for 18 yrs. l. Then I receive a letter by the park lawyer. On the letter states that my oldest daughter broke in my neighbors cars, in the carport and also broke in their mobilehome. This wasn't true at all their wasn't a police report and the manager never send me a letter about it. So I will like to know how I would make them take that off my file. Cause of you get three write ups they will force me to move out of the park and sell it.
  • Is it possible to get emergency custody if you have not yet filed for divorce?
  • My mother recently passed, leaving an estate of around 100 K, plus her house. Would a probate filing be required for an estate of this size? I am named as executor, and am one of 3 children. Can I handle the paperwork without an attorney?
  • Does grandparents have any rights to take my child from , also my sister that lives in alabama is going to try and take my child.
  • My divorce is final and has been dissolved. I was awarded the house and it’s just in my name, but he won’t leave. How can I evict him?
  • If I am renting a unit for $550 utilities included. And the day of my son's birthday a real estate agent who claims to be the property manager comes to my door Saying I had to remove my kids portable kiddie pool. It was 6 ft wide 10 in deep. On my porch next to my front door. She serves me for days later with a notice to terminate lease agreement due to material non-compliance. If there's nothing in the least stating I can't use a kiddie pool. Is this document legal?
  • I received a summons for an old old credit card debt. If I answer it in justice court (small claims) I guess there are no appeals. How do I request Superior Court?
  • 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
  • I have filed for divorce. I did this on January 28, 2008. I cannot afford an attorney so I am having to do this on my own. I also filed a petition for temporary orders. The hearing is on the 22nd of February. I did not understand the instructions to serve my husband. I took the papers to the sheriff's office on February 4. What happens if my husband doesn't get served on time? I just mailed the order to appear yesterday, 2-13.
