Former rear neighbor's Pitbull broke into our home and bit our Labrador.They then obtained Stalking Injunction against us after which they drove circles around our home videotaping us pulling weeds in our yard-attempting to elicit a response (we gave no negative response) then alleged we flipped...

They notified me two weeks ago that payment was received at their office and they would be sending me a check. We have already reviewed and signed a closing statement. We know how much money they are sending us. They have promised the check a week ago. Now I am getting excuses about their... Read more »
There is no set timetable, but it should be reasonable and done as soon as practicable and possible.
Settlement disbursement timing always depends on the circumstances. If there are liens (e.g. Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance, etc.) or health provider balances (e.g. doctor(s),...Read more »
Failure to pay court fines resulting in the suspension of my license. I was released from probation despite not paying the court $324 and now the order to suspend my license has a case number that doesn't match the number from the court's website or the number from my personal documents.
You could contest the suspension of your license, but before anything else is done I expect that the case number on the order will be corrected. If you are charged with driving with a suspended license, the charges will stick, in my opinion. You received a copy of the order and knew about it....Read more »
Buyer (Mr.F) knew from the beginning that he had IRS liens on his own assets, but he purposely dragged the sale out up to the loan underwriting process. Once the lien came out from the underwriting process, on the agreed closing date, he extorted the seller (Mr.G) into lowering the sale price for... Read more »
Highly highly unlikely. Mr G could have made his contract to buy contingent upon selling his home; or purchased after the selling closing. There was no literal gun to Mr G's head. Closings fall through all of the time and are not actionable beyond the deposit contemplate by the contract....Read more »
Sue the tenants. The agent is irrelevant and is not the police and cannot be there 24/7 to make sure the tenants take care of your property. A property can be destroyed in mere hours, and it would be unreasonable fro landlord/tenant law to even check in weekly on the property condition inside;...Read more »
If a judge and attorney are (or were previously) colleagues, and they both participate in the same community/athletic events, is it a conflict of interest for the lawyer to represent a defendant in the judge's court? I was the plaintiff, and what went on during the hearing was outrageous.
I was convicted about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Right now I have a domestic violence case against my husband and he has retained the same lawyer that represented me. I gave that lawyer lots of very personal detailed information about myself and about him. Is this legal for the same lawyer to represent both... Read more »
Sounds like brokerage Two does not have a case, based upon your fact scenario.
I suggest that you should consult with a real estate attorney in your area to review the listing contract and any other documents that you have to be certain that nothing exist that could make you liable....Read more »
We was at a night club and we pretty much goes there friday, saturday, and sunday and most of friends and family goes there and we was barred away from the club by a girl that is sleeping with two of the managers and workers that are in there and we have never caused a problem in there and we have...

The night club can exclude you, unless they are discriminating for one of a number of reasons. What you describe isn't one of those reasons, so yes they can exclude you. In other words, "no reason" is good enough.
filed for dismissal. Then in 2017 my fathers attorney filed a joint notice of voluntary dismissal of all claims. Stating my mom and dad agreed. Even though he was deceased. Is this legal? Did we lose out? Can I file a claim?
I have a final divorce decree signed by both parties, attorneys, judge and entered. So divorce is finalized.

Psychological evaluation at the request of defense, patient retains privilege to my comprehension? Information remains confidential, requiring written consent to reveal? Misdiagnosis provided, recommendation made is preposterously unethical and malicious.
If you are examined for court purposes, disclosure in the court is the premise of the exam. The expert's opinions are subject to cross examination and rebuttal by your experts. Discuss this with your attorney.
Interesting question. An attorney licensed to practice in Georgia and who mostly practices tax law, is nevertheless qualified to practice family law, but in Georgia. If the advice concerns inter-related issues of Georgia and Florida law, giving such advice is probably not considered the...Read more »
I am considering becoming self-employed as a "life coach" -- albeit unlicensed and uncertified until I satisfy the educational requirements for working as a counselor -- and I am trying to gather information about what I must do to protect myself from liability. I also need to know if there are... Read more »
Makes sense to get a general errorors and omissions /general liability policy. As to the admissions, morally you need to consider them, legally only those professions required to report have to report. There may be variances in state law.
Suggest you google mandatory reporting state by...Read more »
the offer I would lose my SSDI and Medicare benefits if I were to go to court. Based on this information I accepted this under this advice.
