You could sue the contractor. He breached the contract by performing a job that failed to achieve the desired result of a repaired roof. I recommend you consult with an experienced attorney and examine your options in detail. You may be better off if you act quickly. The statute of limitations is...Read more »
I am looking to make an adapter that fits to a Scott face mask that firefighter can use to put a filter in to protect the first responders from the coronavirus. I’m worried there may be an issue with making an accessory that connects to their facemask and I’m not sure if it’s a patented... Read more »
What you are attempting to do seems admirable to me in helping firefighters be able to safely continue their important work in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. You are correct that there could be patent issues relating to this. This article I came across discuss potential patent infringement...Read more »
You should consider consulting with a family law attorney. From what you have described above, you likely have grounds for divorce based on inappropriate marital conduct or something similar. You could use irreconcilable differences as the fall back no-fault ground. If your Wife is intending to...Read more »
This issue is one that could be litigated. Under current precedent it is not entirely clear if the government can force churches to close. State and local governments have police powers that allow them to regulate through generally applicable laws for public welfare. This extends to the power to...Read more »
Your best course of action is to consult with an attorney immediately. A baby sitter selling drugs while she was watching the child is a big problem. It seems quite opportunistic that her grandmother would be there to take pictures when this happened. You will need to file something with the Court...Read more »
I want to be Legally Registered with my Business Name, LLC but my domain name and product Trademark to be a different name. Is this possible? Also, what legal issues do I need to worry about and any other added information would be amazing. Im selling clothes and the name is a little edgy and dont... Read more »
I recommend you consult with a business attorney to discuss in greater detail. In general, you could register an LLC as a certain name and use another moniker to denote the business. This is fairly common practice, many businesses operate and trademark certain names while the LLC could be something...Read more »
Is this for TX or TN? TN is a one party consent state so you can record a conversation even if he is unaware. You would need an attorney licensed in TX to answer that question regarding TX law. Also, you should consider consulting with an attorney regarding the sexual harassment you have been...Read more »
My back up and train me deliberately only gave me half answers so I would make mistakes, was exceptionally rude in tone and gestures, and would tell lies about me while not helping me ever. My VP and my manager both asked me how I was getting along with her when I first started which should have... Read more »
You should consult with an attorney. You have several options here. Some of which you said you do not want to pursue. One option is to send your former co-worker a demand letter threatening to sue her if she talks about you with others. That may help in this situation. Overall, you should discuss...Read more »
Is there a parenting plan or other court order in effect regarding the child? To be understand this issue, you should consult with a family law attorney and bring all relevant documents to the consult. Good luck.
There may be more facts that could be relevant here. Was the person driving the car with or without your permission. I recommend you consult with an attorney experienced in traffic tickets and car licensing issues. Good luck.
how do I get guardianship here or maybe I don't need it here. I am his rep Payee and he has signed Power of attorney and last will in front of notary a few months ago. Also health care directive in front of witnesses.
You should consult with an experienced attorney. Tennessee has a conservatorship (guardianship of an adult), similar to what you described in Minnesota. In a conservatorship court proceeding, the court would determine if a conservator should be appointed. A conservatorship may not be necessary if...Read more »
I live in Sweetwater, TN and have become aware of a dog, Mia, living in a house in Sweetwater with no electricity. Mia's owner has been in jail since Jan. 18 and a family member is feeding her and taking her out to potty twice a day. Upon her owner going to jail, the police told the family member... Read more »
Based on the facts as you describe them, the owner who is in jail still owns the dog. The family member seems to be taking care of the dog on a volunteer basis. The family member may be able to argue the owner abandoned the dog, if that argument is successful then the family member would be the...Read more »
I recommend you consult with a local Attorney. I am not sure which law applies here as you posted in Tennessee, yet the location is listed as Texas. Assuming Tennessee law applies, the house may be your separate property. If it is deemed your separate property, it would not be awarded to your...Read more »
There may be more facts that would change this analysis. However, if a child has an Order of Protection (OOP) against anyone, that OOP would trump any previous Court ordered parenting plan. The person with a valid OOP against him cannot exercise visitation with the protected child. The OOP should...Read more »
My dog will not stay in the yard and I don't believe in chaining them up, only makes them more territorial and mean. I had a man come to my house and tell me that he was bitten by my dog because he was in his yard, does he need to show proof that it was my dog that bit him or will the court system... Read more »
If there is no other witness and the man claims he was bitten by your dog, then most likely anyone would believe that he was. Proof could be something as simple as a picture of the bite marks. If the man is willing to put on a sworn document or swear in court as to what happened, he is likely to be...Read more »
Son and daughter. They reside with us in S. Korea now. My ex wife has supervised visitation two times a year. I have to fly the kids back in April for her visitation and we have the final parenting plan hearing (I currently do not receive child support it was an emergency hearing) is it fair to ask... Read more »
You may certainly ask, that seems reasonable. However, if your ex has no job, no home, and was recently arrested I do not really see how she could pay. I recommend you consider consulting with an experienced family law attorney if you have additional questions. Good luck!
My family needs to break our one year lease early. Our lease states that if we were to terminate early for any reason, we will be responsible for all remaining rent due to the end of the lease, forfeiture of all deposits and fees, plus two additional months of rent. Which will equal about $15,000.... Read more »
Law trumps the lease. There is a mitigation of damages requirement in Tennessee.
In general the reason people put language in the lease that goes beyond what the law allows is that such action is not illegal. People think with good reason that strong worded language scares people into...Read more »
I am the respondent, the petitioner falsified everything that was used to request this order and I can prove it. I noticed one of the items she is asking from the hearing is that I pay all legal fees and taxes. If I win and no order of protection is granted, will I still need to pay the fees?
Tennessee has a statute where if an order of protection is granted, the respondent is required to pay the legal fees of the petitioning party. This likely means if she is successful in securing the order of protection against you, that you would be responsible for her legal fees. If you have proof...Read more »
I recommend you try Googling this. Another good option is to call several local attorneys and ask how much they typically charge. Keep in mind if either party later decides to contest anything that will make the case cost significantly more for both sides.
Lack of service means the other side was not given notice of the hearing. If you are unsure exactly what the letter means, the best first step is to call the clerk's office and ask them about it. They should explain why they are taking that action. If you are unsure of how to proceed after...Read more »
