The second question doesn't mention anything about money. If the person saying this does not intend to have a second date and wants to fool the guy for only giving them money for a dinner date for $50 then ghosting them. Is this illegal?
Possibly. The term "prostitution" is not defined in Michigan law, which means the ordinary meaning of the word applies. Right or wrong, prostitution is ordinarily defined as an act a female may engage in. Your question suggests it's the female setting the terms; she could be engaging...Read more »
Depends. How did they get the pictures? What are the pictures of? If they are demanding money or something else, it may be criminal extortion. You should probably consider filing a police report. Can they post the pictures? That's a different question. If they are true and accurate pictures of...Read more »
"On paper", yes. Your father should consider creating an estate plan naming and disinheriting these children - if he has reason to believe he is the biological father. Otherwise, one or all of them could petition the probate court for a share of his estate as omitted children.
Depends. Although, if we assuming the board has the power in the bylaws, I can't think of a superseding regulation or law that would stop the board from exercising that power and implementing the rule.
I will sign off the lease but I want the deposit back first. She will not give it to me. Only two people are on the lease but we split the rent three way because her boyfriend lives there and pays a third of the rent. What am I liable for?
As to the landlord, you remain liable for the rent. Getting the deposit back - or your share of it - is something you'll need to work out with the landlord. Most landlords will probably want another person to sign onto the lease before releasing you.
If you're talking about applying for Social Security Disability, and not a long-term disability or some like benefit offered through the union, then sometimes claimants can be successful on their own. However, it is always helpful to speak to a lawyer before moving forward. Most disability...Read more »
What is your question? Speedy Trial is far more complex than what most people believe. Generally, it may entitle you to release pending trial on your own recognizance. The 6-month rule a lot of people refer to really only applies to people awaiting trial who are also MDOC prisoners, and even then...Read more »
My boyfriend and I lived here for 9 months helped fix up the house and get new appliances. There has been altercations where he thinks I need to do their dishes cause I'm currently unemployed from Covid19. He also gave us an eviction notice he downloaded and printed off from the internet and... Read more »
A landlord-tenant relationship can be formed as you are describing your current situation: you pay $300 a month, and he lets you stay there. When that is established, the legal process of eviction is the remedy. That starts with either a 30-day or 7-day "notice to quit"; in rare...Read more »
Filed report April 1, 2020 but case does not exist. Have been calling the department & leaving messages w/ anyone who who allow me to. Officer has yet to return a simple phone call. I am still out daily looking for runaway son...with no help.
At one point this person was going to be living with me, so he is running a background check. He does have a history from 2004 when he was "young and dumb"....can my landlord tell me he can no longer visit?
Visit, no...unless there is some sort of court order. The landlord can certainly restrict you from having roommates. A good lease will detail what constitutes a visitor and a roommate (e.g. visitors cannot stay more than 3 consecutive overnights within a two week period). As you have previously...Read more »
I was in the car with my 16 yo girlfriend and we were out past curfew, I don’t have a license so she was driving and the cop had her call her mom so he could talk to her. I was curious because I know there’s different rules for 17 year olds, so can a police officer make me call my parents?
You're right: there are different rules for 17 year olds. You can be charged as an adult. Seeing that your girlfriend is close in age, and I assume the cop didn't notice anything else out of the ordinarily except for a curfew violation, I think it was appropriate for the police to call...Read more »
I live in Michigan, and Governor Whitmer just signed an executive order banning travel between residences. I am my girlfriends ride between her workplace and home. She lives with her grandparents and we are trying to reduce exposure to the outside during this pandemic. She does not have a different... Read more »
If the actual title was signed, then I don't believe it matters legally whether the owner subsequently passed away. Obviously, it needs to be processed by the Secretary of State for issuance of a new title.
