He wanted to insure that she had a place to live, should something happen to him. Now, she has late stage Alzheimer's, and is living with his sister. He and I want to sell the house and relocate. Is it possible to do so, without her signing off? Her name was never on the loan for the house.
If your husband's mother's name is on the deed, then the house cannot be sold without her signature. To make matters worse, her signature on the deed would not be valid anyway, because she is of unsound mind and is incapable of entering into legal transactions. Someone would have to act for her,...Read more »
The answer depends on the reason the officers state was the reason they pulled you over. IF, and that's a big IF, the officers had no legitimate reason for the stop AND IF they admit that, the marijuana they seized should not be admitted into evidence against you. If, on the other hand, the...Read more »
It shouldn't but it might. The only way to tell if it did is to examine your credit report from all three major credit reporting companies. If it shows on there you should submit a written explanation to the credit agencies. They have to place it in your file. Will they place it in your file?...Read more »

The standard drill would be for me to tell you to hire a lawyer but I can tell you can't afford one. We do have legal aid in some counties in Alabama, but with your response due tomorrow (well, today, now - Tuesday) you don't have time to go to them to see if you qualify.
You have not provided enough information to permit an answer. Has this happened or are you afraid that it might happen? If it has happened, what did the judge do? An attorney failing to appear in court is a very serious matter. There either is or is not a legitimate reason for his or her...Read more »
No, you can't. A joint owner who pays taxes on jointly owned property does so on behalf of himself and his co-owners. Your only remedy is to hire a competent real estate trial lawyer to file a suit for partition under the provisions of sections 35-6-20 through 35-6-66 Code of Alabama 1975. You...Read more »
The girl that "sold" it let them pay her in narcotics for starters and then she wrote a receipt as if they paid her the actual money. I was unaware untill I kicked the girlfriend out then the "buyer" showed up. (Over 6months later) said they bought it and moved in.. The trailer is too old to be... Read more »
You haven't given enough specific facts to permit a specific answer. For example, we don't know who owns the land the trailer is located on, and we don't know exactly what the paper says that your ex-girlfriend gave them and we don't know whether you or your parents still have the papers from when...Read more »
I am one heir to our mothers estate who died 11/11/2015. As I understand a previous post, Alabama real estate automatically passes to the heirs after 2 years which is close approaching. The estate is still in probate; real estate has not been sold which is the primary asset in the estate. I would... Read more »
What you need is a real flesh and blood lawyer, and not an anonymous internet board. While we love to help people, your problem has too many moving parts. You do have only 9 months to file a disclaimer as to inherited real estate. There is no two year automatic transfer rule. Real estate passes...Read more »

Some judges, Clerks and law enforcement offices read the law as though it prohibits a person from filing a retaliatory domestic violence case. Others do not. There is a difference of opinion, and I don't know whether one of our appellate courts has answered the question. It is my opinion this...Read more »

In answer to the first question, yes, the person who made the offer can back out so long as the owner has not accepted the offer, in writing, Before acceptance, the offer can be withdrawn at any time, for any reason, or for no reason.
The second question is slightly more difficult. The...Read more »
That's easy. Foreclosure cuts off all prior liens, except tax liens, unless the IRS is notified in advance of the foreclosure in the special way they require, and then they will be cut off as well. No one can remove liens from the Probate records, they are there forever, but the foreclosure...Read more »
They had him on a misdemeanor and found out Ms had a warrent on him so there holding him for them but I'm being told 10 different things about how long they can hold him before they have to release him since the judge released him on his charges he got here
This is kind of a weird area of criminal practice. Its not a question of law. Its a question of bureaucratic policy and procedure. The jail, which is run by the sheriff, will hold him and tell Mississippi they have him. They expect Mississippi to come and get him. If Mississippi doesn't come...Read more »

but can not give me a clear title to the property. The current owner does not know if there are other people that could contest the buy. Can I legally own the property if I advertise it in the newspaper that I have purchased it and if is any that contest it should do so? Also is there a specific... Read more »
You can't do it quite that way, but you can do something like it. It involves buying something called title insurance. Go to a local title company and tell them that you are purchasing the property and want to have title insurance. They will research the title and give you a written title...Read more »
