I then found out that my I insurance had lapsed. I had no clue my husband first all that. I had insurance the next day. I believe that both parties involved are at fault . I shouldn’t have assumed she was going to be going as fast as she was. It’s kinda a blur but I remember the light was... Read more »
A Utah attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry about your accident. I hope everyone is okay here. You put a number of issues on the table. In terms of fault, a Utah attorney familiar with the state's vehicle and traffic law AND the signage/traffic...Read more »
Utah Code Annotated 34-23-205 lists "baby-sitting" as a permitted occupation for minors 12 years of age or older, so the short answer to "is it legal" would be yes. The reasonableness of leaving minor children in the care of another minor is subjective and would be reviewed by...Read more »
You need to read your lease. Sometimes landlords list a set of charges/fees upon move out----kinda sneaky but I think they picked this up like the short term condos and rentals have a cleaning charge upon departure. If there is nothing listed, then you should return the property in the same...Read more »
My son and I are both members of a federally recognized tribe. We do not live on the reservation. I assume ICWA will apply, but as neither biological father or step father are Native American, I am sure my tribe would consent. Bio father has not contacted my son or paid child support in over 5...

Hello. ICWA is applicable and very complicated when it comes to adoption cases, and the forms on the court's website are for basic adoptions. Honestly, I am surprised that the court's website has adoption forms at all, as there are many varieties of adoption cases and overall they are...Read more »
I filed this with the Federal Government. My husband is a physician & I work in healthcare as well . Because of that, I am having a hard time finding an attorney that doesn’t do malpractice and HIPPA violations. Does anyone know who I can talk to about this? This is a very serious HIPPA...

I'm not sure what you mean by your HIPAA being violated but the short answer to your question is that in their wisdom Congress in enacting HIPAA did not provide any remedy for a violation, other than potential injunctive or declaratory relief which means no money therefore no attorney would...Read more »
Ditech bought my loan. They were given all of my escrow in early September that was due in November. I didn’t know Ditech never paid my taxes or insurance until I received a notic that my house was going to be auctioned off. I had to prove to Ditech that it was their responsibility to pay it....

The house is a long distance from the trustee’s residence and full of personal property to be garnered, valued, and distributed. The house is to be sold with equal shares to beneficiaries. The trustee is one of those beneficiaries.
It sounds reasonable as long as it doesn't take too long. If the trust doesn't speak to that ability, then the trustee probably can. A trustee's actions need to be reasonable or some other standard as outlined in the trust agreement. If this is done, then the trustee will still...Read more »

I have a podcast, and we are just coming up on 10 episodes this weekend. After a google search, and I don't know why I didn't think to do this before, we realized that there is another podcast by the same exact name as ours! In fact, there are two or three. I'm worried we could get... Read more »

Due to it not being done when the refinance took place. Will that cause potential problems when filing a Chapter 7,... Read more »
We used a stopper on our pantry door so that the doorknob would not keep slamming into the fridge. Eventually the stopper put a 1-2" hole in the door. Instead of just patching the hole, the landlord is insisting on buying a new door. And even worse, he insists it be a $300 custom-made door... Read more »
If you can install another door of matching quality and color to when you moved in the home, the landlord will have real difficulty trying to sue or press you for anything else. This becomes much more difficult to do if you have already moved out of the home. If he has already purchased and...Read more »
I have a rather unusual problem. I live in Utah and am the disconnected part of a polyamorous triad wherein the other two partners happened to get married before they explored polyamory. They happily have a child together and we all have been happy for about five years. Now I am having a child with... Read more »
You are correct that you should list yourself as the father on the birth certificate. You need to voluntarily relinquish your parental rights and allow the husband to adopt the child. You need to understand that this will forever extinguish any legal rights you would have with the child (although...Read more »
I ran away from home recently and DCFS hasn't really been over to tell me where I was going and what I was doing. They came over once to see if I had a place to go and a bed to sleep in, etc. The agent told the family I'm staying with that my father can legally take me home with him... Read more »
There is no reason you cannot contact your family and for the sake of your future relationship with them, you should. Until someone else is appointed your guardian, you are emancipated, or you turn 18; yes, your father could take you home. As your parent, he has that right.
I've recently ran away from home because my dad has been abusive for years and I have gotten a bunch of support from my friends and my friends got me out of the house. I was in some trouble for another legal thing that I also need answers for. When I ran away I was talking with my local police... Read more »
Utah Legal Services may be able to connect you with a local attorney who could help you pro bono (free). The short answer is "yes, you can be emancipated without your parents consent." You will need to show that you can actually support yourself and not rely on the family you are staying...Read more »
I have submitted an I-130 for my wife (I am a US citizen) in November 2020.
In the form, we entered values in both the "which consulate will you be applying for adjustment of status" for a domestic consulate as well as international consulate since we weren't sure where we... Read more »
If your I-130 was received by USCIS then you do not need to submit another one. You will enter the receipt # of the I-130 on page 4, part 2, question 3; and the date your I-130 was received in question 4. Even though it appears that you plan to file for Adjustment of Status on your own, I would...Read more »
