This has to be thoroughly examined and analyzed. Who is the beneficiary of the policy? What is the cash value (not benefit) of it? Whose house is her spouse living now?

It's not quite clear what is being asked here, but if a penalty period is concerned, in NY, you do not "pay" penalties to Medicaid to cure or get rid of the penalty period. If your penalty period was conclusively determined to be 6 months due to transactions such as certain transfers...Read more »

Sorry for the situation. If you received the speeding ticket in NYC and that's the only ticket you got, then your case will be heard in the place called "Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB)" which looks like another court but it's actually an administrative "agency" run by...Read more »
I got ticket speeding in work zone with 6 points. Now I have received info back and they are offering to lower it to parking in front of fire hydrant and 0 points. Do I say guilty and accept or say innocent and wait for court date? They sent plea via mail due to COVID pandemic.
It depends on your situation. Do you have a valid defense such as you were not the operator? Assuming that the speeding charge (6 points) is valid (meaning that the officer has proper training to assess your speed visually, etc) and you are likely to lose the case, then taking the plea offer may...Read more »
Yes if the "future monthly rents" referenced here are the rent payable under the existing lease. If your landlord gives you the notice of termination or intent of no renewal in a legally sufficient manner, your current lease will terminate at the end of the lease. There is nothing to fight there.
The change of ownership won't affect the lease in effect. The new owner must respect and entertain the lease terms unless the lease says otherwise. S/he cannot kick you out. However, RPL §226-c concerns renewal (or no-renewal) of a residential lease. So if your lease is to expire soon and the...Read more »
The first thing you may want to do is contact the DMV and get the details surrounding the FTA or contact a traffic attorney in NY. Many traffic attorney in NY often have access to DMV system so s/he should be able to give you some additional information.
I was given a ticket for VTL-1111D1 by an officer claiming I passed a red light. he was sitting at the corner of the intersection which already has a traffic camera.

It depends. If you received the ticket (3points) for 1111D1 in NYC and that's the only ticket you got, then your case will be heard in the place called "Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB)" which looks like another court but it's actually an administrative "agency" run by...Read more »
Yes, you can, but the plaintiff's attorney may try to throw in some legal fees that may not be deemed reasonable in court. Be careful and make sure that both sign a Release that also obligates the plaintiff to dismiss the case with prejudice prior to or on the due date for (your) answer.
Should i send the law firm an award letter from SSI? Maybe they will stop? My girlfriend financing a car for me but its registered in my name. Is there anyway to protect the vehicle from being taken away by debt collector? My girlfriend still has 1year and a 1/2 left of payments left.
That will probably be from a law firm that does dozens of collection work for creditors. Just because the letter is from from a law office does not make the letter special or legally binding, etc. Treat the letter as a letter from a third party creditor/company. As a consumer, you have the right to...Read more »
I have a driving on a suspended from years ago that I never dealt with (I probably have a bail on this matter). I want to get it taken care of so that I can finally get my license restored, but I would like to fight the infraction if possible.
You can "fight" or dispute your suspension. How you were suspended in the first place will play a key role. Did a judge suspend you for whatever reason (like DWI conviction)? Or did the DMV suspend you due to nonpayment of a parking ticket or surcharge that you didn't know of or...Read more »

The police officer's reason to stop you was the alleged speeding and your license was suspended at that time. That's how you would have received the summons for both speeding and operation while suspended. The officer's request to move your car after that won't change the...Read more »
After moving into our new unit, we left on holiday for a week. Upon returning, we discovered our entire unit reeked of cigarettes and weed (most likely coming from the bathroom vents) and documented this with the landlord. From my understanding, assuming these damages are not remedied, in order to... Read more »
Real Property Law § 227 often applies to situations like your building was severely damaged or destroyed and became unfit for living due to reasons you are not responsible for. In that event you may terminate the lease unless your lease advises otherwise.
Regardless of the arbitration clause or your opinion, you will need to "answer" the summons to avoid default judgement. You can bring up the contractual dispute clause in the answer (and later in the proceeding), but you need to respond first. If you are going to defend yourself as a pro...Read more »
What kind of type your "electric scooter" is must be addressed. Assuming that it's an e-scooter, there is a speed restriction in NYC. If you go above the speed limit, then it can be a violation. You won't need a plate for it. It cannot be registered in NYC, so no license plate...Read more »
