If you pay your rent into the registry of the court every month during the appeal, those payments will be applied towards any judgment the landlord recovers against you. If you don't, your appeal is likely to be dismissed.
I filed for chapter 7 in Texas with over 10,000 in checking accounts. 100% of this money is from unemployment compensation so I claimed it all as exempt. I told my trustee that at 341 meeting, and he said that it might not be exempt.
I was expecting him to ask for bank statements which... Read more »
She had custody of me and my brother since I was 2 and I'm 34 now and her house and items are in probate so I'm trying to find out if we are considered her children as well and if we have any right to her house?
Unless you were adopted, you are not an heir. If you are not an heir, are not a beneficiary in a will, and have no other documents giving you rights to some of your aunt's property, then you have no rights to any of your aunt's property.
At some point, the county will probably foreclose on the property. If they don't get enough from the foreclosure sale to satisfy the outstanding taxes (and penalties and interest) you'll still be liable for whatever is unpaid.
Instead, you might want to look into arranging an...Read more »

I am trying to help my elderly mother make a will. The date I printed all the forms was July 23, 2021. Can I still use those forms and get them notarized ? Or do I need to make a new will since this one was printed two months ago ?
The self-proving affidavit on a will must be signed with the testator, two witnesses, and a notary all present at the same time. The date on the document should reflect the date they all sign. The date the document was printed doesn't matter.
All property acquired during the marriage is presumed to be community property, regardless of who is on the title. If you're getting a mortgage, the lender will require her to sign the deed of trust whether she's on the title or not.
You can certainly buy property without your wife being on the deed, but she will likely have a community property interest in the property anyway. You can buy property with a mortgage, without her on the note, but the bank will almost certainly require her to sign on the deed of trust, which...Read more »

The answer depends on who owned the property at the time of your parents' deaths. If you and your sister owned the property, then your parents' death doesn't give anyone else rights to the property. If your parents still owned the property, then all of their heirs (either under a...Read more »
Sounds like her new landlord is in breach - which may be because the former tenant refused to move. Without knowing more, it's impossible to say what the best solution would be, but I'd start by talking to the new landlord.
An affidavit of heirship does not transfer property, but merely gives notice of who the heirs are, which depends on the factors mentioned by Mr. Cucci. It should be filed in the county where the property is located, and there is no deadline for doing so.
If the refinance happens and you don't sign on the note, you would not be liable on the mortgage, however the lender will almost certainly require that you sign a deed of trust to secure the mortgage loan. That means that even if you're not...Read more »
If you don't own the property, your landlord will hold you liable for damages to the house. If you hurt anyone in the process, you could be liable for battery, and it's probably an assault on your wife anyway, even if you don't hurt her. Don't do it.
My lease says I require 30 days notice for year contracts and 60 days notice for month to month. but on the summary of the lease it just says 60 days for all tenants. I gave 30 days notice after seeing the contract and they will not let me move out without a fee. What are the things I could say to... Read more »
You need to contact a business lawyer in your area to discuss exactly what you mean by "an investment LLC" and what "stipulations" you want. It's possible that you're trying to do something you need to be licensed for, and/or for which you need to register the securities being sold.
You'll need to contact a lawyer in your area who does this. Because LLCs can be so flexible in how they're operated, and in separating the ownership from the right to run the company and the right to profits, LLC operating agreements can be either pretty simple or very complex, depending...Read more »
