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.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer Generally, courts look to the custodial parent to encourage visitation. They also look at the influence the custodial parent has to interfere with visitation. The mother cannot simply withhold visitation because you are behind on child support. At the same time, if you file for contempt for failing to make the child available for visitation, she can file for contempt for your failure to pay child support.

Also, have a professional mold service test the mold. Not all mold creates a health hazard.
In court, if you don't have an expert, your beliefs about the mold are irrelevant.
Once you have code enforcement come in and have the mold tested, you will be in a better position to negotiate a written termination of the lease. It is dangerous to just leave or leave on an oral agreement. Early...
Paula J. Mcgill's answer You were month to month. Therefore, you were required to give 30 days notice that you were terminating the lease, unless the lease you had required more time. Some leases require the tenant to give 60 days notice.
You stated you moved November 30 giving your landlord a 30 days notice. If you moved November 30th, did you give the 30 days notice at the end of October? If you gave the notice on November 30th when you moved, did you pay for December? If not, the landlord has the...
Paula J. Mcgill's answer If there isn't an early termination provision in the lease, the tenant cannot simply stop paying rent and leave.
You have to make it clear that you object to the move and intend to hold him to the full three months plus damages.
