William J Webster's answer Even though everyone is in agreement, in order to transfer property from your mother to you and your siblings you will need to hire a probate attorney to open and assist in administering your mother's estate.

Depending on the size of the estate and types of property, there may be other...
John Paul Young's answer The first thing you need to do is take a deep breath, everything is going to be fine. Second, deliver the summons and the complaint to your liability insurance company immediately. The insurance company has a contractual obligation to defend you and to indemnify you. (This means pay any judgment that might be entered against you up to the limit of your liability coverage).
The complaint may state "permanent injury" but the the extent of the claimant's injury will be determined...
Stuart Nachbar's answer The answer depends on if same was exempted out. Some states follow the federal exemptions and some go with State Exemptions. Talk to your counsel about same and make sure it was properly exempted out.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer The charges that you have against you have a possible penalty of up to a year in jail. You should consult with a local criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to begin working on your defense.
Kyndra Mulder's answer In general the mother of a USC is an immediate relative and a visa is immediately available to her. She can adjust inside the USA. One word of caution is that she will need to be prepared to demon state that she entered the USA with a non immigrant visa and did not intend to immigrate. If she had immigration intentions when she entered the USA on a non immigrant visa she can be charges with misrepresentation or visa fraud.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Possibly, yes. The specific facts make all the difference in determining the exact process that would apply to your case. You would need to have a full consultation with an immigration attorney to get a fully analysis.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer If the named executor or personal representative is unable or unwilling to serve, you should consult the will to see if there are any alternate ones named. If there are not, an heir or family member can open the probate estate and petition the court to appoint an executor or personal representative. Usually this will be a bank or another local attorney.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer Once they have vacated the property you have 45 days to give them an itemized invoice for any damages they have caused or bills owed otherwise they are entitled to the security deposit to be returned. You need to follow the letter of the law or it could come back to harm you in the future.

Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer Yes, he can. It is not your dog. If you believe that the dog is being abused or neglected you can report him to the appropriate local or county authorities and they can remove the dog.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer If your roommate is not paying the rent you should have worked with your landlord to evict him. If you are resigning solely in your name and your roommate is still there in the future you should evict him and as part of that sue him for his share of the utilities. You should not let it go on this long though. Four months is too long.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer Usually landlords are responsible for repairs required to the rental premises. However, in a case like this where the damage is caused solely by the tenant's negligence, you are most likely responsible for the cost of the repairs.
It is not going to matter that it was warm when you left. Indiana gets cold in the winter. Temperatures fluctuate and dip. The landlord has no control of the temperature once the rental premises is occupied.
