A friend of mine was in a committee meeting and recording it for her notes. This was noticed and she was asked to stop. She did so and deleted the recording before the meeting was over. Did she commit a crime?
I confronted this woman's friend about her issue with my child. She has been talking about my son for quite some time now, and it needed to be addressed. I walked up the driveway of her best friend, when I saw her there. I walked up to her, and told her "I am disappointed in you". I... Read more »

I pointed out a mistake made on TF checks. I gave them back. The Attorney was going to make corrections. Told me to pick them up the following day this was a year ago. I still as of today received the TFs Monies. Once check were wrote did this end attorney's fiduciary duties?
Obviously the attorney's duties (as trustee, I assume) are not done, at least until the checks are properly written, accepted, and deposited. It looks like the attorney wants to meet with you about this, which also indicates that the matter is not over.

We live in Florida. We have been divorced for 6 years. We have always used email. Two months ago, I started getting responses to my emails saying that he longer accepts emails and to text instead. Do I have to comply? (I think that he simply does not want his email rants on the record.)

If both email and text were checked, typically email is used for long/substantive messages and texts are used for short...Read more »
