My neighbor owns the fence on the property line between our yards. I just discovered his lawn service has been coming on my side to mow and trim the fence. They have scalped all of my grass along the fence. I asked him nicely to tell them to stay off my property and leave the trimming to me. He... Read more »

If you don't understand the arbitration verbiage in the contract, have an attorney explain it to you. It basically means that, if there is a dispute over the contract, you will have to arbitrate the dispute instead of filing a lawsuit. See:
The potential buyer would acquire the property subject to your mortgage; thus it would not normally be a smart move on that person's part because their interest could be "under water" (meaning that they would owe on their second mortgage but without any equity). And, of your...Read more »
If so, does the retainer mean that lawyer/firm cannot represent my spouse? Assuming there are ~30 divorce attorneys in my area and I paid a $5,000-$10,000 retainer to each would this insure they could not represent my spouse?
Also, (aside from the dissipation of assets problem to which Ms. Augen refers), if you have that kind of money to burn, your spouse could simply retain an attorney from another part of the state. It might be more expensive, but apparently that would not be a problem.

They are personal property and, as such, belong to the seller unless the contract provides otherwise. If, when you looked at the house you saw the seller's clothes in the closet, would you expect to get the clothes? Same idea.

I have no idea what MFT means. If you took it in New Jersey, I would guess you should ask you question in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > New Jersey. If you mean "Marriage and Family Therapist"(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_therapy#Licensing_and_degrees), it would be a state exam.
I have a protective injunction with no contact in place against my ex husband. I provided our 15 year old with a cell phone. She is the authorized user and the number/line is in her name. Her father believes it is a violation trap of the injunction for him to call her on the phone as I pay for the... Read more »
If the injunction provides that he is not to call you, it could be read to mean that he is not to call any phone in your home. So technically, he may be correct. But it is hard to imagine he could get in trouble unless you were to answer your daughter's phone; otherwise who is going to make...Read more »
So what happened was during a custody trial, the father had claimed the defendant was trying to keep the daughter away from him (he’s behind on child support and has lied on who was watching over their daughter among other relevant things) and had said he had evidence that he wanted thing to work...

There might be hearsay problems, but that would depend on such matters as what exactly was intended to be shown by the introduction of each text,...Read more »

It is unclear what you mean by "an emergency eviction notice". Normally a tenant is given at least 15 days notice before the tenant can be taken to court to be evicted. At any rate, you should get enough advance notice to let your attorney and the "pretrial officer" know about the situation.
