The money that was in my account was to file bankruptcy, all the courthouses are closed to the public due to the Coronavirus. Everything I had was in my account, now I have no money for rent, food, my car. Is there any way to fight this during a national emergency?
In other words, your husband was a joint owner. With his death, he ceased to be a joint owner, and you became the sole owner. The land records won't reflect that fact until his death certificate is recorded.

I paid out of pocket (plus a check from my insurance co.) for the car, there is no leanholder on the title. Can the dealership say "oops, one of the rebates we... Read more »
I would not dismiss the idea that the dealer can come back for more money. The answer probably depends upon the written agreement. I would look at what you agreed to: You may have agreed to pay $X for the car, and the papers probably show the rebate as the source of partial payment, so, from the...Read more »
I need to hire a lawyer for help with an employment contract. I've found one in town, but I live in a fairly small town. Should I ask the lawyer if my client is their client and avoid using that lawyer if that is the case?

We owned a Servpro restoration franchise. 2 years ago we sold our license instead of renewing, and went on our own. We took all labeling off the vehicles. Servpro is now telling us that we have to have the vehicles repainted. They do not have the color trademarked. The vehicles were never... Read more »
The franchisor can make you stop using their trademarks. You may be correct that the color is not a trademark, but did you agree in the franchise agreement to comply with this request? If repainting is not covered by the agreement or by trademark law or by state competition law (which might be...Read more »

Divorce is the legal process that seems to be the best candidate. There are other legal processes, such as a personal bankruptcy, that might cause the process to move forward as well. Your mother should consult with an attorney.
My wife and I are planning to divorce. The problem is that neither of us can afford to live alone and our debts are so intertwined between us (both names on everything) that splitting it would be impossible. We're considering a bankruptcy to simplify the process. I believe we make too much to... Read more »
