If it's 60 days for example, you have to let the tenant know of the increase on or before the 60 day limit. If the lease does not have a deadline for nonrenewal, you have to let the tenant know of the increase at least 60 days beforehand.
The state does not have a limit on how much you can raise the rent upon renewal. However, check with the county or municipality. Either entity may impose a...
Paula J. Mcgill's answer Unfortunately, child support isn't tied to whether the children follow the visitation schedule.
You can file a motion for contempt against her for the middle child. However, at 16, that child has the right to voice his/her choice on visitation/custody. Normally, judges will not follow the wishes of the child who wants no contact with the parent unless there are allegations of abuse.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer Standard leases have a provision that state either if nobody terminates the lease is renewed for another term (usually 12 months) OR the lease goes month to month until either party gives notice of termination. If the second provision is in your lease, the terms of the written lease still apply.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer If the current order doesn't give an end date and a new child support amount for the remaining two children, you will have to return to court to modify the order.
You don't have to have an attorney. However, you should consider consulting with one in an hour office visit. The information obtained during that visit should give you sufficient information to allow you to determine if it is better to hire an attorney or represent yourself.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer Probably not, this is the problem with forms. You should tell your landlord to modify that section to state you already paid the security deposit and it will be applied to this new lease.
I am happy to see that you in fact read your lease. In my experience 95% of people would simply sign the renewed lease without thinking about that provision.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer The walk though is done once the house is vacant. It behooves her to wait. Boxes and furniture may just be hiding damages.
Regardless of when she does the walkthrough, any checklist of damages should note it was done before the move out date.
You can do your own video walkthrough once you move out all your items and make repairs. Make sure you also take pictures of corrections to any problem areas she may have noted in the premature walkthrough.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer If you complain about the harassment (follow your employee handbook on filing internal complaints) and nothing is done or you are retaliated against, certainly, move forward and file a charge with the EEOC.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer What do you mean when child support was filed? Are you the father and want to know when the mother filed an action for child support? If so, you simply have to call the court where the action was filed. If you've been served the petition, look at the court's date stamp.
