Leonard R. Boyer answered on Jan 4, 2022

There is no legitimate basis to file a lawsuit. You are obviously on a family plan. You can have it turned off and removed by AT&T. I seriously doubt any legitimate ethical attorney would take your case. Just because you feel you were unfairly treated does not mean you sue a family member. Get... Read more »

Q: Can a person's right to a property be waived for not signing an agreed upon Quitclaim deed in a timely manner?
Leonard R. Boyer
Leonard R. Boyer answered on Dec 29, 2021

NO! A quitclaim deed is not worth the paper it is printed on. It has no effect on the mortgage and does not relieve the signer of the quitclaim deed of any liabilty. The best bet would be to refinance the property to eliminate the ownership of the other person.

Q: Hello my husband served me with court papers that I can't leave country with my daughter but now he say he canceled it

I want to know how long court take to cancel motion in NEW JERSEY because he told me it will take till February 4 after I can travel

Leonard R. Boyer
Leonard R. Boyer answered on Dec 19, 2021

That sounds like a trap to me. No one would file a Motion with the Court and then cancel it. It also would not take until February 4, to do so. It can be withdrawn in 1 to 2 days at the most. You really need to retain an experienced matrimonial (family law attorney) to handle this matter for you... Read more »

Q: Our condo is in 16 unit building. The bldg is condemned. 75% of owners want to sell entire bldg. Can they force the sale
Leonard R. Boyer
Leonard R. Boyer answered on Dec 10, 2021

Without reading the by-laws of the the condo board, no one can answer that. But if the property has been condemned it may not be sellable. But if it can be sold, as is, then you should take the money and run.

You did not indicate whether or not your parents are married or divorced. But this question means there is a lot of trouble going on in your family that is not being disclosed.

You cannot just "put a restraining order" on your wife. You have to have a legitimate legal basis to seek a Temporary Restraining Order under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act.
