You can't prevent someone over 18 from doing any of those things in their own name unless you happen to have legal guardianship over them. It does not matter if they are your own biological children. Once they are 18, you have no legal right OR responsibility for them.

You could potentially sue for defamation. However the overwhelming majority of courts have found that reviews on sites like Google Business are "opinions" and protected free speech. Also, you would have to prove tangible damages, such as specific loss of business. Since the review has...Read more »

Do you have pending charges? Are there warrants for your arrest? If so, then at some point you'll have to deal with each case. And if you have warrants, it's hard to say whether any of them are serious enough to extradite you, but that is a possibility that you absolutely don't want....Read more »
I purchased my car last week and now the fiance company is calling the dealership because they want to verify my employment but the problem is I separated rather aggressively from that company.

Good question. I don't think they will go to that extreme provided you stay current on payments. At the end of the day, this is all a business, and they are chiefly concerned with securing their interest in the vehicle.
Someone else had my account number the bank teller told this person how much money I had in my account they also told her that I have someone else on my account with me and they asked her if she would like to take the money out of the account
She is a single mother who works and gets paid twice a month. She has student loans and just recently they are going into her bank account every time she gets paid and taking 100% of her income leaving her with no money to pay for anything. Which means she will be homeless in no time
I take it she is in default with those student loans, and they are now garnishing her bank account to satisfy the judgment. She probably needs to talk with a collections or bankruptcy attorney quickly and, if possible, stop her paycheck from going into that account. Once the bank receives a...Read more »

Were you supposed to make the monthly payments? It is not clear in your question.
Not a lot you can do to avoid this debt. Despite the lack of notice, you (or your grandpa) was required to make the payment. When the payment is not made, default occurs. The creditor can then proceed with...Read more »

Are you using a Realtor? That person is probably the first person you should (or should have been) in contact with. Generally, since the mortgage lender is not a part of the contract you made with the seller, it would be hard to assign liability to them.
There may be language in the GAP contract allowing them to back out. Obviously you should get your money back for the contract. If it was part of your finance contract, you may want to request a new breakdown of costs because the Truth in Lending Act requires them to provide perfectly accurate...Read more »
One way to avoid a financial scam is to ask yourself: are you expecting money? Before cashing the check, you should look at the company information listed on the check.

If these are the only funds in this account, you should retain a lawyer to file an objection to garnishment. Exempt funds is just the kind of argument that a judge will listen to. However, if there are commingled funds, the analysis is more complex.
