Louis George Fazzi's answer If I understand you correctly, you are an inpatient in a hospital room in which you awoke at 1:30 a.m. to find a maintenance man on a ladder in your room, apparently working on something. As a patient, whether you are in a private room or not, you do not have the same right to privacy as when you are in your own home or a hotel or motel. You are in the hospital's premises. You may want to talk to your nurse to let him/her know that the incident was unexpected and upset you. However, the nurse...
William John Light's answer Report him to the police. They will determine if there is evidence of theft, or of selling stolen property. Sue him for the value of the dog in Small Claims Court and for an order to disclose the identity of the person to whom the dog was sold. He was required by statute to notify the owner within a reasonable time and apparently did not take any action to do so.

Angelina Bradley's answer For California to have jurisdiction over the divorce, you’ll need to live in California in the county you wish to file in for here months prior to filing. For California to have jurisdiction over custody your son will have to have lived in California for six months prior to the date of filing and there can’t be another state claiming jurisdiction.
Sally Bergman's answer These are all questions that should be answered by the terms of the trust. If you have any doubt, you need to have an attorney look at the trust document and evaluate what needs to be done.
John Karas' answer Unlikely. North Carolina participates in an Interstate Compact in which states share driver's license information including DUI's and suspended licenses. Not having completed the DUI classes in California resulted in your license having been suspended by the issuing state's DMV but you are also in VOP (Violation of Probation) on the DUI conviction in California.
Your best course of action is to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to assist you with getting the VOP resolved and...
Sally Bergman's answer Nursing homes are highly regulated in California. There are several different types of licenses, depending upon the type of facility it is.

Nancy J. Wallace's answer Yes, the injured worker and the employer have the right to ask questions of the Agreed Medical Evaluator. That said, the AME thinks A LOT about his conclusion before he signs the report, so he would have to have a LOT of new evidence to change his opinion on anything.
N. Munro Merrick's answer When you say the landlord "stated", I assume you are talking about your lease/rental agreement. If there is such a clause in your lease, a violation is an uncurable default and would give the landlord the right to evict both of you. I would suggest you approach the landlord and ask his permission. He should have you sign a sublet agreement.
Angelina Bradley's answer If you are receiving government benefits for your medical conditions (SSI/SSDI, SNAP, MediCal), you'll likely qualify for a waiver of the $435.00, and you should apply for his waiver anyway given all of your hardships.
You can go to the Contra Costa County Courthouse's self-help center for free legal information and guidance in filing yourself so you don't have to hire an attorney.
You may want to reach out to the Department of Public Social Services to apply for aid from them...
Salim U. Shaikh's answer Where a LL is selling his property, he in fact sells all his rights to a buyer. That means your lease cannot be automatically terminated unless you opt to move out. If current LL or buyer wants you to vacate that premises prior to expiry, they are bound to relocate you and bear its cost. They are also bound to refund your SD immediately.
Prior to entry/visit, LL has to notify you at least 24 hrs before visit so that you can manage accordingly or suggest that time when you are...
Vernon Charles Tucker's answer If the Corporation dissolved typically you are out of luck and have an uphill battle in front of you to enforce the judgment.
However, its complex and requires motion work, but if certain facts are present you could argue the new corporation is the same as the old corporation or is an "Alter Ego" of the old corporation. This may open other doors that could apply pressure to judgment debtor if they are one in the same.
I would look at the amount of the judgment, and see whether...

If you don't reinvest the homestead funds within the six months deadline, the trustee will be able to take back those funds for the bankruptcy estate.
You should consult with an attorney regarding your deadline and the residence requirements.
Travis Kendall Siegel's answer Whatever the resident needs to prevent them from falling because there is no one size fits all solution to falls. State and federal regulations require the nursing home to provide the care and assistance needed by the resident to meet their needs. Sometimes bed alarms work. Sometimes they don't. Sometimes more assistance and supervision works. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes redirection and resident education work. Sometimes they don't. They way to prevent falls is to address the resident's...
