If the mother and child have lived in DC for 6 months, DC would have jurisdiction. You would need the Toronto custody order. You would sue for custody in the DC court asking the court to either accept and enforce the Toronto custody order or grant you custody based on the fact she moved to Dallas,... Read more »

No, they cannot be charged with murder. For a murder charge, there must be a showing of intent to commit murder. There is no intent. They may be charged with manslaughter if it could be proved that they knew there was a likelihood someone could get killed.
We are married with a 9 months old son. He’s visiting out of the states and I was told from a family member that he’s considering a second marriage over there

No. A valid marriage in any country, including the United States, is a valid marriage anywhere. If he gets married in another country, he could be prosecuted in the United States for bigamy, and the overseas marriage would not be valid.

I have had the policy since 1984. Now they are raising the premiums after already paying 38k in premiums. If I surrender the policy can I get any of my money back. As you see above the company is raising the premiums substantial. This is a Universal policy
answered on Oct 16, 2022
It depends on the terms of the policy. I could not answer this question without reviewing the policy. Many times, polices include language that allows them to raise premiums after a certain period of time.
Whatever the policy says, controls.

If your lease is month to month, you need to give 30 days notice. If the lease is more than month to month then you need to give 60 or 90 days, depending on the length of the lease.
And if I changed the locks already what will happen next.
answered on Mar 8, 2022
If she is on the deed, you can't change the locks because she is still an owner. However, if she was gone for 7 months and you have not heard from her or she moved out of the area, then arguably she abandoned the home. In which case, you likely would not face any consequences for changing the locks.
She also have keys to the house and she is not trying to give them. Can I change the locks.
answered on Mar 8, 2022
For now, you have the right to stay in the house and so does she. When you get divorced, the court will divide the house and all other marital property unless you and your wife come to an agreement on the division of the property. Because she is legally on the deed, you cannot change the locks.... Read more »

I am a DC landlord/tenant lawyer. As long as the tenant is not violating his lease, you cannot evict him. The evidence you discuss is not sufficient to warrant eviction. As to whether or not they can fine you, that depends on what is in any agreement you have with the Board. You will likely have... Read more »
