I'm a single parent with four children. I have two jobs and instead of putting him in daycare she threatens to put me on child support. I get him in between jobs whenever I'm not working. Please help me.
My ex wife refuses to let me have our children on my weekend and she told me she is switching back to a previous arrangement from around a year ago. I told her that it has to be mutually agreed upon because of the shared parenting plan. I need help in maintaining a fair shared parenting... Read more »
If she is not following the required court-ordered parenting plan and is denying you your specified weekends, check your parenting agreement if mediation of disputes is required. If so, file for mediation. If not, then file with the court to have her held in contempt and to make any changes to...Read more »
She had my social security number but thats it. She's saying the only way for me to get off the lease is for her to evict me but I feel like the landlord should be able to just remove me from the lease since I never signed any paper work or stayed one night in that apartment.
Why do you think you have to do anything? If you didn't sign a lease, then you are not legally liable. Talk to the landlord about removing you from their records, if you don't plan to live there, and to erase your SSN from their system.
We have a pitbull and luckily they haven't been outside together, but we have watched our neighbor's dog jump into our fenced-in yard multiple times. What can we do (legally) other than ask the neighbor to watch their dogs?
As the owner of pit bull, you are a vulnerable target for a lawsuit if something bad happens. You should consider whether the fence should be taller. You might also advise the neighbor of your concern. Perhaps the neighbor might want to install a taller fence. Check with your homeowner...Read more »
I am going to break the lease 6 months before the expiration. I am finding a replacement tenant to takeover this six-month lease. However, the landlord requires this tenant has to sign a contract for at least one year plus 6 months. Is it legal?
If you have a written lease, your lease is valid until the lease termination date, and the new owner must honor that lease. If you do not have a written lease, either landlord or new owner can give you 30 days notice of lease termination, and if you don't vacate, they can evict you.
I am breaking the lease 6-month earlier than the expiration and I also found a replacement tenant who can takeover this 6-month lease. But the landlord now force the replacement tenant to sign a contract with a period of 6 months plus one extra year. Is it legal?
It is not illegal. Landlord is not required to let you terminate your lease early. Landlord can allow a replacement tenant on whatever terms landlord requires, including having the new tenant fill your remaining lease, and also having the tenant sign for a year beyond that. If the tenant won't...Read more »

Nobody but the owner can tell you it is "allowed." If you do it without the owner's permission, the owner can sue you for trademark or copyright infringement if it finds out about it. The court would then decide if what you did infringed, based on all the facts.

If you do not have a written lease, then if an eviction action is filed, the court will likely evict you. All that other past history is irrelevant. If the court orders the eviction, it typically gives tenant only 7 days to vacate. So try to work it our, or look for new living accommodations.
