I went through because I honestly thought that’s where you go if you don’t have money. Yes, being out of state in the south, I completely forgot about rolled highways.

I have my child every weekend and 1 week a month, my ex wife decided out of the blue that she now wants it one week on one week off so she gets weekends too. I work out of state during the week and take one week off every month. If this change goes through I will have to leave my job of 15 years.... Read more »
in my experience a judge would be unlikely to do this. if you say that you cannot take the child during the week the judge will not order you to lose your job.

A Maine attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. This looks like it could be a difficult case. Although your family experienced a genuine ordeal, the problem could be in establishing the connection between the yard and the disease. Ticks are pervasive everywhere. I...Read more »
conferring with us? They changed the grade and added a wood mat, which does not extend beyond bridge, it sits on top of the metal log bridge. They never spoke to us before doing this. This is part of the easement over our land. Land is in Oxford County, Maine. Thank you.
I would need to know more facts, but the answer is probably yes because he is a co-owner of the property.
