Kevin M Rogers' answer How can you use a credit card "unknowingly?" Let's say your name is Robert. If you used a credit card given you by a friend named John and the name on the card is Bill, how is it that you felt justified in using the card that: 1. you didn't get Bill's permission to use the card; and 2. you didn't even ask John "hey how'd you get a card with Bill's name on it?"
The last part of your question seems to suggest that you know you did something very wrong and will be held to account for it...

Kevin M Rogers' answer It will take a minimum of 21 days for a default, if only one of you files and the other one just sits on their hands and does nothing. However, if you file the Petition and your wife files an Answer, then "amicable" won't begin to describe the end of the process or the time it will take. Typically, your wife will take her parents' advice or friends' advice and seek out a lawyer's opinion after you and she split the sheets. This lawyer if he knows what she's doing, will tell her that she has...
Kevin M Rogers' answer The Idaho Child Support Guidelines make provision for child support being paid to children of another relationship. It's not a dollar for dollar reduction to current child support, but is is taken into consideration.
Kevin M Rogers' answer Sorry, it would be too expensive to have to fly from Boise to Idaho Falls every time. However, if you're serious and could afford to fly me to Idaho Falls, I can make time on my calendar.
Kevin M Rogers' answer Did you and your realtor have a written contract? What does it say? What do the recitals say? To determine whether the realtor breached a duty owed to you, you can look up in Title 55 such as:
54-2051. OFFERS TO PURCHASE. (1) A broker or sales associate shall, as promptly as practicable, tender to the seller every written offer to purchase obtained on the real estate involved, up until time of closing. A purchase and sale agreement signed by the prospective buyer shall be deemed in all...
Kevin M Rogers' answer “Put up a piece of property up as collateral?” How did he “put it up” as collateral? Did he give you a Deed of Trust or a Mortagage? Did he record it or did you? Generally speaking if the document adequately identified his property AND was identified as “collateral,” AND was recorded, then you will have to “foreclose” on the instrument given you to secure his debt.
Kevin M Rogers' answer His ashes are the only thing he had that he could will to anyone, but he died without a will, so the Uniform Probate Code dictates that his ashes would pass to his children in per stirpes. If he had no children but is survived by parents, his ashes will pass to his parents in equal shares. You were never married to him and have absolutely no say in the matter. I’m sorry.
Michael Hales' answer Although you don't have a writing, it appears that you have evidence that a contract was entered. It will now be an issue of forcing delivery. Please contact an attorney if you need assistance.
Kevin M Rogers' answer There is an affirmative defense called “necessity.” It requires YOU to prove that there was literally NOTHING else you could have done; such as getting a ride with someone else or leaving earlier so you hadn’t been drinking etc., so you can see that it is quite a hill you’ll need to climb in order to get the court to give the instruction.
Kevin M Rogers' answer You’ll need to go to the courthouse and ask them if they have electronic records that go back that far or not. If they do all you’ll need to do is make the request. If their electronic records don’t go back that far then they probably have an off/site that they’ll give you directions on how/who to contact to access what you need.
Kevin M Rogers' answer All debt collection STOPS as soon as you file ANY chapter in bankruptcy. If you’re behind on a car payment and you file bcy the collection against you will stop immediately. Same with a house if you’re behind on your mortgage. However the collection on these two kinds of debts will start again as soon as the collector can get the court’s permission.
Kevin M Rogers' answer The Idaho Rules of Family Court Procedure say that in order to begin a custody case you file a Petition. I certainly don't recommend that ANYONE do this by themselves. You need to consult with an Idaho attorney and let him advise you.
Kevin M Rogers' answer Nope. He is nothing but a sperm donor at this point and can pack sand. When the baby is born he has a choice to make. He can either step up and declare his paternity to the child and immediately assume paying child support, or he can do nothing, have you let authorities know who the father is and the Idaho Dept. of Health and Welfare, Children's Services, will contact him and let him know that they have started a case and he needs to begin paying child support. At some point he may demand a...
Kevin M Rogers' answer Your granddaughter’s boyfriend must also be on the lease? Otherwise he couldn’t have kicked her out. So what to do now? Is your granddaughter willing to come to terms with what her BF wants from her? If so, just tell granddaughter to beg his forgiveness and let her back into his life. On the other hand if she is through being treated like shit she should simply move out and move on.
