Kevin Sanderson's answer Yes. Depending if you work for local, state or a federal agency, the rules and procedures differ greatly. They also differ from private sector employment/labor rules. You need to speak with an attorney who knows these areas well to get solid insight.
Alvaro Augusto Acevedo's answer In most cases if you lived in the property 2 of the last 5 years you exclude between 250K - 500K of gains regardless of what you do with the money. If you want to postpone capital gain you can do a 1031 exchange. www.lawyercpa.com.
Kevin John Mawn's answer Florida law requires that you are adjudicated guilty upon the entry of a DUI plea or conviction at trial. Since you can only seal the withholding of guilt, you can not remove a DUI conviction from your Florida driving record.
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.

Rand Scott Lieber's answer The father will be allowed to spend time with the child. It does not have to be overnight. The court will decide what is in the best interests of the child. You need to tell the court that the father does not have an appropriate living space for the child.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer In Florida the mother has full rights to the child unless or until the father goes to court to prove paternity. If she is the mother she has custody so no need to "file" for it. As long as there is not a court order in NM about paternity then the father would have to file something in Florida where the mother and child live in order to pursue timesharing. He would also be obligated to pay child support.
Jonathan A. Klurfeld's answer I dont see why it's an ethical issue to own an interest in real estate and then sell it to you. I assume the only ethical issue would be making disclosure to you of such interest in the LLC; if it is true. If agent is not on sunbiz for the company as an officer of the company, you will have a tough time proving that. If agent was merely an agent for the LLC previously there really is not conflict.
Deborah Annette Carroll's answer You don't get less money with the payment through the state disbursement system. A service charge is added to cover the administrative cost, but it is added to what he pays rather than deducted from what you receive. However it can take longer for the state to set up your account and disburse the funds at the beginning. Once it is set up though, the disbursement to you is fairly quick.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If he left significant assets when he died, someone may have petitioned the court for probate of his estate. The personal representative appointed in that case is who you would contact. Check the website for the clerk of court in your county to find out if such a case has been filed.
And of course you should have an attorney to do this for you. You may be able to find an attorney who will do this on a contingent fee basis.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If you have a child support order, you don't need to file a new suit; collect the CS order. If you have proof that he owns the business and vehicles, and he lied about it under oath, he can be prosecuted for perjury, and you can perhaps, once you prove it, get a writ of attachment.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Unless it involves sexual harassment by a federal officer or employee, chances are that it is state. But it doesn't matter unless you plan to litigate it, and you definitely don't want to do that without an attorney who specializes in such cases. Ask that attorney.
