A woman bought a puppy from me and a week later decided she didn't want her. I offered to buy her back and we met and she took off with the puppy. She now has me blocked and has listed puppy for sale. What can I do?
My father has a will he created by Legal Zoom, when living in NY. He passed away while residing in NC. As I was named the executor, I met with the county clerks office to begin handling his affairs. I was told that NC requires the last 2 pages of the will (notary & witness pages) to be notarized.... Read more »
The is no requirement for a notary to be involved in a Will at all in New York. Estate Powers and Trusts Law (EPTL) 3-2.1 requires the signature of the person signing the Will and two witnesses. None of those signatures need to be notarized.
Here’s the thing, my sister has several problems with alcohol abuse, I care from other country and been here the last 3 months, the thing is that I’ve been taking care of the dog, feeding her, taking her for walks, etc, I’ve paid for everything this last 3 months, but according to my... Read more »
It appears that the dog legally belongs to your sister. But it depends upon how she got the dog and how long she has had it. If you feel it is being mistreated or neglected there are steps that you can take but there is no guarantee that you will be able to get ownership and it would take some time.
If you nephew didn’t leave a Will, the law of intestacy sets out the order of distribution. If he had no wife or children, parents would be next, even deadbeat ones. This is why it is important to have a plan. Of course, the father can waive his rights.
As I am executor of my brother's estate, my mother asked to have the estate's only property partitioned. My mother and sister-in-law are both beneficiaries and they aren't getting along. The property is pre-marital property that was in my brother's name only and he willed the house to both his... Read more »
In this situation, as you describe it, your responsibility as an Executor is to transfer the property to your mother and sister-in-law and that is it. Let either one of them sue the other for partition since they are having the dispute.
From my understanding he is presumed to be capable of providing informed consent. It also looks like if it was ever determined that he can't provide informed consent, I would still be able to take him to doctor visits as per FHCDA or OPWDD law. Also, he lives with me and is 29.
In case where someone died intestate with no spouse, no descendants at all, and no surviving siblings, parents, or grandparents, my understanding is that the next distributees to be considered are "issue of grandparents".
If one child of the grandparents is still living, and another child... Read more »
“6) One or more grandparents or the issue of grandparents (as hereinafter defined), and no spouse, issue, parent or issue of parents, one-half to the surviving grandparent or grandparents of one parental side, or if neither of them...Read more »
My parents are going through a nasty divorce and I want to move out of the house. I currently live with my mom. How can I take the dog with me, legally so she cannot say no? I believe that he is registered to me but what if he's not? My parents got him for me as a gift.
It sounds like you are the owner. See if you have records showing you as the registered owner. Vet bills, NYC license papers, bill of Sale etc. However, even without those documents, if it was a gift to you, it is yours. If you can get your parents to acknowledge it in writing you can avoid trouble...Read more »
I drove to pick a dog being given away due to not be able to take care of it anymore. Now being threathen wanting her back. Then calling me late night then writing apologies they were stress because of the family issues which has nothing to do with the dog or me and said can we be family. Now... Read more »
From what you describe it does not appear that an estate proceeding was started or you would have been given notice. You can go to the Surrogates Court in the county where she lived to check. You may be able to force the house to be sold as a beneficiary. Let me know if you need further help.
The court found that the Department of Health did not follow proper procedure in changing the way FIs are paid for services provided under CDPAP. Because they didn’t, the change was voided and they had to go back to the reimbursement method prior to 7/1/19.
I am sure they will send you a bill in the mail. If you don't pay it they will most likely take further collection efforts. Further efforts after that may include hiring a collection agency, reporting it to the credit bureaus and possibly suing you to get a money judgment.
Your mom can sue him for breach of fiduciary duty, self dealing and fraud and void the transactions. However, I would need to know more to properly advise you. In any case, you and your mom should speak with an attorney.
someone put a ad on craigslist due to losing her job she cant take care of the dog so i offered to care for it but now its been 2 months and she wont respond to anything when i ask her when is she coming to get the dog am i able to just keep the dog as my own now
Unfortunately, it is not simply a question of how long before you can claim ownership.
Since you agreed to care for her dog, you are considered a bailee under New York law similar to how an attended parking garage takes responsibility for a car. If you have a written agreement with a...Read more »
