Yes. This is something that happens depending on whether you are month to month tenants or under a lease. You would be well advised to consult with a housing attorney and explore your options as soon as possible. You have rights that might be wasted if you wait too long. Good luck.
if the sale of the house? The deed was once in my sisters name but my mother put it back into her name after she got the mortgage.There are many more details and we would like to know if my mother needs to hire an attorney to protect what she has left
Absolutely! Your mother needs her own attorney, particularly because of the funny business regarding the mortgage. Make sure she gets an experienced bankruptcy attorney to explain everything to her. Good luck.
My ex-husband and I just got a tax bill from 2018, that says we owe money based on discrepancies with what we reported as our joint income. In 2018, I worked only part-time, making less than $10,000 a year. Our divorce was finalized in December 2019. Do I owe half of the owed taxes from 2018, since... View More
If you handled your divorce with experienced counsel, this is likely referred to in your settlement agreement. I would refer back to it to determine your portion of the tax liability. Otherwise, other counsel has already properly answered here regarding your liability in the eyes of the IRS....View More
The other attorney answered accurately. I just want to add that to file a bankruptcy petition without experienced bankruptcy counsel is a terrible idea. Its like working on the transmission for your car without an mechanical know-how. In fact, both services are approximately the same price. So...View More

If you are not working with a bankruptcy attorney, you are misguided. Bankruptcy has a steep learning curve and too many moving parts for even a non-bankruptcy attorney to handle properly.

I have written a fictional manuscript and used that anecdote. A depressed character muses he wishes he felt alive. Since that show Springsteen has used the line “Is there anyone alive out there” in the song “Radio Nowhere.” Can I use the phrase or would that be a copyright infringement?
I would imagine that the phrase is not copyrighted or trademarked and if there was a concern, you could likely say that it was under the “fair use” exception, seeing how it is short and not very original. I used to do standup comedy in NYC and often called out something similar. I would not worry.
The second mortgage (30,000) at the time and our first mortgage was (93,000). We have recently received a notice in the mail from a third-party creditor demanding to pay the second mortgage or they will foreclose on our home. When we filed the bankruptcy the second was field as a secured claim. We... View More
Did you agree to pay the second mortgage through the Chapter 13 plan? If yes, then you need an attorney to put the mortgage company on notice and possibly review other options available to you. There may be an FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) case here against the debt collector too. If...View More
You need to file a motion for the extension and if you are doing this without an attorney, you are going to be very ill-equipped with the rest of the filing. I highly recommend hiring an experienced attorney with a focus on bankruptcy. This is not the kind of legal matter that a lay person can...View More

a club member is complaining because kids come at the bar to grab a snack during their golf round. Our Snack bar and Bar are in the same room because of space constraint, can they come in and grab a snack?
There should be no problem with them coming in to grab a quick snack if that is where the snack bar is. The club member is being a cantankerous old creep as some people can be. Unless the minors are causing some kind of disturbance of venturing over to the alcohol end of things, I think you...View More
