If you are asking for someone to explain a particular case to you, (and presumably, determine whether and how it affects your situation), you need to consult an attorney. This forum is for general legal questions.
In general the issue in a case is the particular legal question before the...View More
years ago i took my 1 1/2 yr old daughter to a "pop-up ER." They incorrectly inserted her catheter and caused 2 hours of pain because her bladder was blocked and unable to drain. Also, she was unable to speak to us to tell us what was hurting. An older nurse recognized the issue, adjusted... View More
No, of course not. Without some basis for why you would ask this, there's nothing more that I can say that would be relevant and helpful. If you have a lawyer, ask them. If not, I suggest you visit with a probate lawyer in your area ASAP to address your concerns.
Said Army left her there with others, says she is a millionaire ( 3.6 million ) but the banks won't let her access her account cause she said she made a agreement with them not to use her money while she's there ( Kabul, Afghanistan ) Says she has another account of all her military pay...

Case: Property owner rents out his property but he still has junked machinery on site. He decides to sell the machinery located on the current leased property and he states in the sales contract that all machinery must be removed in 15 days or buyer will have to pay a $500 penalty fee, and was...

Lots of things went wrong here. The landlord/seller is trying to impose a penalty on the buyer, without incurring any damages, the Buyer isn't complying with the agreement, and the tenant is interfering in the contract. Buyer needs to pick up the equipment, the tenant needs to get out of the...View More
I have no idea how an employer would enforce a requirement to "come to work in a good mood," but they could certainly insist on certain behaviors which might suggest that a person is in a good mood, such as being polite to customers or co-workers, greeting customers at the door, smiling...View More
I was targeted by an aggressive door to door salesman, I was coerced and pressured into signing a contract for a Kirby vacuum and promised monthly payments of $105.49, $2,800 payoff before 36 months and $3,797.64 if I’m still paying after 36 months, 21% interest rate. I was turned over to a... View More
First, I recommend that everyone Always keep their own records of payments made, either by making the payments in a way that generates a record (like a check) or by keeping a copy of the payments made. That way you are never in the position of having to look for a receipt.
I applied to a texas colllege and when applying I informed the school that I considered myself a texas resident because I spent my freshmen, sophmore, and half of my senior year at a texas highschool and graduated from said school. I only spent my junior year and half of my senior year in new... View More
There are rules that govern when in-state and out of state tuition should be charged. (When I was in school, after being employed in Texas for a year, I qualified for in-state tuition - so I paid out of state tuition for only the first year, and then switched to in-state tuition.) Here's a...View More
I don't have a lawyer, so trying to figure it out myself. It's very hard. Husband has a Lawyer. He's been provider for the 10yr marriage. My income is $313 disability check. I need help. Is it to late to file Motion for Temporary Orders Hearing? I live in the home. It's mine,... View More
Temporary orders won't be effective after a final decree is entered, so it doesn't make much sense to request temporary orders at this stage. Of greater concern is the terms of the final decree, and whether it recognizes your separate property. You need a lawyer to review the situation....View More
I purchased a vacant lot that has a water meter on it. I'll call my property lot 1. That water meter was listed with the city for both lots 1 and lot 2 since the previous owner owned both lots, the water meter is physically on my property. However lots 1&2 are now owned by different people... View More
It sounds like you have a trespass claim against your neighbor, and damages from any unrepaired trench on the property, as well as the cost of providing water to your neighbor, and possibly for the cost of installing a new water line and meter. Depending on the circumstances and expense, there may...View More
Scenario: In late 2019, a couple in a community property state decides prior to marriage to keep their finances separate but divides all housing and utility costs equally. However, no prenuptial agreement is signed.
Spouse X earns a base salary income of $70,000 and Spouse Y earns a base... View More
Absent a written agreement otherwise, all assets acquired during the marriage are presumed to be community property. Property acquired by gift or inheritance is separate property, but the person claiming that they are separate would have the burden of proving that. If community property was used...View More
I have 60% of the company and want to keep the same branding. But need to have full control of the new line. Can this be as simple as putting the agreement in the operating agreement and filing for a single member LLC where I have 100% control. My main goal is to keep the branding and customer... View More
It's doubtful that you could assume complete control of a product line of the original LLC simply by starting a new LLC, and even taking a new business opportunity from the original LLC may be problematic. Presumably you would also need to have ownership of that product line & branding...View More
Hello, I am a father of 2 children (7 and 13). My wife and I have been married almost 8 years. We have had difficulties like most marriages. About 7 weeks ago we had a disagreement and she left and has not returned. I have not heard from her or have seen her since. None of her friends or family... View More
Under the circumstances, you might want to consider filing a missing persons report with the police. In order to get a divorce, she'll have to be served with a citation, so you'll need to know where she is.
I can't tell whether you actually had a contract, or were just discussing and negotiating an "opportunity." In the meantime, it doesn't sound like you "lost" $800, but rather that you set up an LLC that you can't use for the deal you didn't get, and you can...View More
The appeal is pending, awaiting the Appellee's brief. After that is filed, the appeals court will review the briefs and issue an opinion. No one can give you a prediction as to what that will be without reviewing the whole case.
You have three issues that need to be decided in order to answer this question.
1. Who actually has title to the property? Often, when I hear that multiple siblings are the owners, the property belonged to one or more parents, who died and there was no probate proceeding. All of that has...View More
I’m considering buying a book online from a bookstore in the UK and having it shipped to me in the US because the British edition is much more attractive than the US edition (this would be shipped by the retailer using the postal system). The thing is, the US edition and UK edition are published... View More
