There are IRS Annuity LE/REM Valuation Tables in the Treasury Regulations, which are easy to apply. However I doubt you have a life estate but instead are an heir at law and thus a tenant in common with the other heirs. Check the title and DE intestate succession laws, or better, hire a...

It is the choice of the parents whether to apply for US citizenship for their child or not. If the child is not a US citizen,... Read more »

A Delaware attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. If they issued you a denial form or a denial letter, it's possible those could outline your recourses, in terms of litigation, arbitration, etc. There aren't many details here, but one of your options is...

Suing her for possession ("eviction") is in order if you are the owner. If someone else owns it with you, then you may file suit for a Sale For Partition. Your lawyer should have already had you ready to do this when the opportunity arose. She will be going after you for child support,... Read more »

There are two basic tests for whether one is bankruptcy-
1. Inability to pay debts as they become due, and
2. If the total amount of your debts exceeds the total value of your assets.
Eligibility for specific chapters of bankruptcy are set forth in Section 109 of the Bankruptcy Code.
Will changing a letter in name and their specialty be good enough to not get any kind of copyright claim or some kind of takedown request? Think in the style of the Grand Theft Auto video game series by Rockstar.

You should consult with an attorney.
Using names of public common places may not be an issue.

Yes. As long as your green card is valid at the time that you apply for Citizenship and you have a copy of the front and back of it to submit with your naturalization application, you are ok to apply. Best wishes!

Section 109 of the Bankruptcy Code determines who is eligible for relief under each of the different bankruptcy "chapters", e.g., 7, 13, 11, etc.

Yes----quite often in matters involving accidents and damage to property, a ticket is issued based on the law enforcement officer's investigation, which does not include his witnessing any portion of the accident/collision.
