If the total probate assets held in your husband's name are less...Read more »

It depends upon where you are beginning the lawsuit and why you are filing.

I sold some ammunition in a private sale to an individual who was over 21 years old. I was contacted by a detective saying that the ammunition that I sold him legally, may have been used in a murder. Ammunition is not subject to background checks in Wisconsin so I did not ask to see a concealed... Read more »
Most likely you were contacted as a witness. They may be trying to tie the Defendant to the gun by way of the ammo. I am not a civil attorney, but it seems unlikely that you'd face liability assuming you were acting legally when you sold.

She needs an Order of the Court. If she does not have the Court Order, she can not remove them without your...Read more »

A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You could look into whether a local attorney would offer you a brief consult to explore your best defenses, if any exist.
