An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Some questions go unanswered here, but your question may have been overlooked under the general "Uncategorized" heading. You could try reposting and adding "Criminal Law" as a heading. Good luck

The theft should be covered by your comprehensive motor vehicle insurance coverage. If there is any potential theory of recovery against Camping World, your insurance company will be subrogated and may potentially bring such claim on your behalf to recoup what it has to pay you under your policy.

Contact the sheriff office and report them. Beyond that you can pursue a VPO against them if you feel threatened. Other than that you may have some elements of stalking but you need to contact an attorney in your area to assist you.

Not really. If you’re in danger or risk of imminent harm, you can file a VPO.

That said, if your abuser has left you alone for over 15 years and shows no sign of coming around, you could have court costs assessed against you.

If no order is in place, then your kid can stay with either parent.

The answer depends on the wording in the deed and the factual circumstances. It's not clear from your description who are the joint tenants on your deed. You should take the deed to a real estate attorney for review and advice concerning how to get the deed corrected.

Q: Can I keep money wired into my account by accident?

I had a loan transfered into my account for $6900 yesterday. Today an additional $6900 was wired in. Can I keep that money? Or is it inevitable to have to pay it back. The loan was only for $6900.

I paid a wire fee twice, once for each wire.

You will have to pay it back. They will eventually discover it. However, a better course would be to call the loan company and let them know of their mistake. You can ask them to reimburse you for your wire fees.
