Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Yes, if he was not the subject of undue influence, and if he was mentally competent when he made his will, he could, if it was done properly, disinherit children and other family members.
Charles M. Baron's answer Your mother needs to IMMEDIATELY go to Court for a restraining order, also called domestic violence injunction. Based on your description, the Court will likely immediately issue a temporary order requiring him to leave the premises while the case is pending. She does NOT need an attorney to do that, but it would be good for her to have one. If she cannot afford a private attorney, she must go to the local Legal Aid office. The Court will sort out the issue of the lease in due time.
Eric Gene Young's answer As a dog lover myself with two rescues, I am truly sorry you are experiencing this. The first thing you need to do is to contact animal services and request an administrative hearing. Most every city or county gives an opportunity for a hearing before they euthanize a companion canine. Your request should be made in writing, and it should be hand-delivered, faxed, or emailed. If you hand deliver it, get a receipt or some sort of writing to evidence that you delivered it. In the written...
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You could sue to cancel the false loan modification application, but you would still be liable on the original mortgage note. So, unless the terms of the loan as modified are tougher than the original loan terms, there wouldn't be any point in suing.
The problem with the original divorce terms is that, even if he were to file for a modification, there is no guarantee he would get one (particularly in 2009). You shouldn't have been required to quitclaim your interest to him until...
Joseph Jaap's answer A court can only decide based on evidence and testimony that is properly presented in court and admitted into evidence according to the court's formal rules of evidence. The rules of evidence are posted on-line. The court must comply with those rules. If the plaintiff is not able to submit sufficient evidence that is admissible to prove the claim, or doesn't know how to get the evidence admitted, then the plaintiff cannot win - and there might not be any grounds for a successful objection....
Sabi Mand's answer First you need to get a judgment and then there are various ways to collect court ordered spousal support such as wage garnishment, bank account levy, seizing property/assets. You should contact your county bar association and they might have a volunteer attorney program where someone can help you free of cost.
Joseph Jaap's answer Normally not, unless he has transferred assets to you to avoid collection. In that case, the court could allow the creditor to trace his assets that went to you and to attach them for collection. The creditor also could obtain financial records from both of you to determine if any transfers happened and the dates of transfers.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You have a choice: either go for a default judgment; or amend your complaint, get him served with the amended complaint, and see if he responds to that. You cannot file another lawsuit for the PTSD; it would normally be considered part of your first lawsuit.
F. Paul Maloof's answer If the court granted possession of the premises to the landlord on August 1st, the tenant has 10 days from that date to vacate the premises before a writ of eviction can be applied for.
Elizabeth Tarasi's answer In a products liability case you need to have a duty, breach of the duty and damages. I’m not sure if pizza delivery gives rise to a duty. What are your damages? You would have to have damages in the six figure area to warrant the expense of litigation.
