You should talk with an insurance attorney, but I suspect 1) it is too late to now appeal that decision, and 2) even if you did appeal, I would imagine the policy allows them to decline coverage when they can point to a criminal act like this as the cause.
These situations are always emotionally tough. But legally, yes: whomever you are legally married to when you die stands to receive the lion's share of any estate. She would also have priority for appointment as personal representative. She would be obligated to share the inventory with you...Read more »

I pay for my own Internet. Cable and jack were present when I moved in. Landlord is forcing residents to use landlord-chosen ISP. New service will quadruple my bill. I asked landlord HOW my Internet service would be “discontinued” - and I was told that the cable will be cut outside my... Read more »
I believe your landlord can do so. You may be in what's called a "multi-dwelling unit", and ISPs and cable companies can compete for exclusive service to those. Once service is secured, they become the exclusive provider of services to that dwelling.
I still reside in the home with our son. I am in the process of refinancing at this time. My ex is to receive 40% equity in the home. About 11/2 years into the divorce my ex filed bankrupt against the home without my knowledge. I became aware when I noticed that my payment had not been taken from... Read more »
Yikes, what a mess. You should seek the advice of the attorney who represented you in the divorce. Whomever goes to court first will be asking the court to enforce this judgment and so it's important to know exactly what this judgment says and what rights or remedies are available as a matter...Read more »
my son was pulled over for a tail light while on his way to the grocery store. While pulled over neither officer had a mask and made him take his off to identify himself. While they ran his name they made him get out of his vehicle handcuffed him and sit in the patrol car with them. After waiting... Read more »
Your son should first make a complaint against the officers with the department's internal affairs. Legally, whether the officers' actions were appropriate will depend on what exactly was going on at the time, and what your son was or was not doing.
Hopefully your place of employment has general counsel or some other mechanism for you to obtain legal advice about these sort of matters. You should communicate through the proper channels to get your answer to protect yourself.
Perhaps an overly simplistic answer, given without benefit of...Read more »
He told Them where to find me. When they arrived, i was so upset and so angry and just started talking as of i were talking to my brother, not realizing A. That i was giving a statement, even though i never submitted a written one and B. That if i say one thing, they are required to take it a... Read more »
You're in a tough spot. As you've seen, the prosecutor can use your statements made to police that day. Once the police get involved, things are then out of your hands. With this being his second offense, it does not surprise me that the prosecutor will want to try this case, or at least...Read more »
in Michigan law if there is no name or contact information as to who constructed the contract on the contract, who has a legal rite to object to the counter claim filed because as far as I knew only the drafter of the contract has the rite to file suit and object to counter claim
For purposes of some claim of breach, it doesn't matter who drafted the contract. Either party may state a claim that a breach occurred. Where who drafted the contract comes into play is when there is some ambiguity in the language that substantiates the breach; when the contract is ambiguous,...Read more »
That is not a reason to plea to something you are not guilty of. You should ask the attorney what are the elements of the crime you are charged with. Then, you must ask yourself whether there is sufficient evidence of those elements. Remember, evidence can be in the form of witness or victim...Read more »

It doesn't sound like those errors will amount to a dismissal. The substance of the ticket remains valid: you were the one driving a vehicle. If you could show that you weren't even there, that would be a different thing. Whether you were truly speeding is the legal question to focus on...Read more »
I'm struggling to find help in my situation about having my deceased father's medical records release to his insurance company. I am the original beneficiary on his policy, but his oldest daughter had my name removed from his policy. I wish I can afford a lawyer to guide me through this... Read more »
It doesn't sound like your issue is necessarily with the insurance company. Their job is complete when they pay out the policy to the named beneficiary; they don't get into disputes like this. Your avenue of relief might be through the probate court; if a probate administration has not...Read more »
I'm not sure there is a mechanism for a court to order that. Have you tried reaching out to him? I don't think there is anything legal that can be done at this point, but if you explain to him that all you're looking for is confirmation of your questions, maybe he'll oblige.

You need to contact an attorney in your area quickly. If you cannot afford one, this is a situation your local legal aid office may provide assistance for. This doesn't sound right, and smacks of an illegal eviction.
