I don't know of anyway to sue for this. I have no idea why she didn't tell you. You should ask her that. It may not be true. Keep in mind that being a parent would have obligated you to pay child support. It still can. In Oregon child support is until the child is age 21 if they...Read more »
Did you have a joint account? If so, you can just deposit it in your joint account without any endorsement. It should go right through. I would do it through an atm or a banking app and not in person at the bank as they might ask questions. As long as you are 100% sure that the money is yours...Read more »
Our cars breaks didn't react fast enough to stop and they t-boned the car on the side my son was sitting. Everyone is fine, besides for bumps and bruises. I'm wondering what to do beyond filing with insurance, which has already been done? And what to expect?
Well you should work with your own insurance assuming you have the coverages you need. First, you have PIP (Personal Injury Protection) which will cover the medical bills for everyone in your car so you all can immediately start getting any medical treatment you need. You each have up to $15,000...Read more »
Not sure I understand everything that is going on and you will probably have to have a one on one with a lawyer at some point to sort this out. Courts are pretty much close right now so you won't get a hearing any time soon to order him to pay support but the child support offices are...Read more »

I am going to assume that he is in Oregon as your location is stated to be Washington State. The laws vary from State to State and I only practice in Oregon. Your son is not considered a legal adult at age 17 and while he should have rights as a father I believe he would need a guardian ad litem...Read more »

First of all, why in the world don't you get an Attorney to help you with your case. You ALWAYS get more money overall when you hire an Attorney so after paying a percentage to your Attorney you will at least get as much as you are going to get trying to do this yourself.
We also have two children that I have not seen since November. We agreed on a parenting plan in court, and than I found out dhs and liberty house were investigating, I was told if there was no fault, visitation would begin in January. DHS finally called me last month and said there was no fault,... Read more »
You will need to contact an Attorney directly and ask for assistance. Justia only offers you the chance to ask questions and meet Attorneys who have profiles on Justia. Sadly the courts have very limited services and are not setting trials until the emergency pandemic orders have lifted. Most...Read more »
An Attorney cannot practice law by proxy. This is your nephew's issue and he needs to be the one to contact an Attorney for advice. Often people in frustrating situations will tell friends and relatives a very biased version of the facts because they are seeking sympathy and validation, not...Read more »
First of all I have never heard of a living estate. Maybe you mean a revocable living trust? If that's what you mean putting you property into your own revocable living trust doesn't make your property unavailable to your creditors, least of all your obligation to pay child support....Read more »
My family and I moved into our rental 6 years ago. Recently Our Security system we just bought picks up general air quality ie. pollen, cooking odors, methane, dust and carbon monoxide. It was detecting abnormal air quality the past week that we've had it. I double checked our smoke... Read more »
You may very well have a case for personal injury IF and I mean a big IF you can tie the carbon monoxide leak to your health issues. I want to warn you that just because you read somewhere that carbon monoxide can cause headaches and other problems, this doesn't mean that you can prove that...Read more »
I work in a call center, we are more than capable of doing this job from home, they aren't allowing us to work from home, but they're not doing anything but putting our lives at risk. Every single person that works there gets sick if so much as one other person gets sick. The job that we... Read more »

Tried to back out of contract but bankruptcy lawyer is threatening I will be sued by sellers or bankruptcy court if I don’t follow through with sale. Bankruptcy was never disclosed to us in purchase and sale agreement (only in addendum stating “sale of home contingent on court approval”) the... Read more »
This is a complex situation which really requires a lawyer to know all the facts and review all the documents before they can advise you. All I can tell you is that the Bankruptcy Lawyer is motivated to get top dollar for their client. They need to sell the house for more than is owed on the...Read more »

This isn't a family law problem. This is in the ball park of a landlord tenant or contract issue. You can't control who your roommate invites over. You can report the theft to the police if you think there is sufficient proof that the police will be able to pursue the complaint. You...Read more »
This is typical of the police but sometimes they are much more helpful if you have a certified copy of the Judgment and parenting plan which leaves no doubt that you are entitled to have the child at that point. There can still be a problem if it isn't clear that you get the child at that...Read more »
Not sure which parent you are asking on behalf of. But the parent you are concerned for needs to be the one to investigate this issue.
