T. J. Jesky's answer The first step is to have a serious talk with the family member, i.e., either pay rent or move out. If that fails,
the next step is to give them an ultimatum. Give them a specific deadline and state that they have to be completely moved out by then. You can offer to assist them in finding a new residence. Ask you other family members for their support in speaking with these unwanted relatives. Perhaps there are some other family members that will take them in. Be clear in...
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer If you believe that your brother is incapacitated and being abused, your best chance is to file for guardianship over your brother. However, be aware that in Indiana the presumed first choice of guardian is actually the person's POA, followed by their spouse.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer No, it is not illegal for a 15 and 17 year old to be having consensual sex in Indiana. Absent a position of power held by the 17 year old you are covered by Indiana's Romeo and Juliet laws that allows for 14 and 15 year olds to have consensual sex with peers up to 4 years older.
Paul Stanko's answer Your cousin should have already contacted an Indiana estate attorney to handle the estate. There is no problem with having two co-personal representatives. Your attorney can prepare the paperwork.
Paul Stanko's answer You can't close a police investigation. The best thing to do is get lawyered up, don't talk to anyone, and don't talk to the police about it especially! If they don't think they have enough evidence to charge, it will eventually blow over.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer You have not given enough facts here at all. Do you have children with the ex and the ex is taking the children? You need to go see a family attorney in your area if that is the case. The ex might need to follow the law in your state for this, and it might require your written permission or a court order.
Terrence Rubino's answer no. it is probably more common that a person doesn't actually go to court before a garnishment occurs. a person gets sued, doesn't answer the complaint and summons within the required time, the suing party obtains a default judgment and files a proceedings supplemental naming the judgment debtors employer and gets a garnishment order.
Burton A. Padove's answer This is no different than any other attorney hiring. Check referrals from friends, bar association referral services, internet, yellow pages. You could google PCR attorneys in Indiana and find appellate case decisions and see who the attorneys were.
Terrence Rubino's answer there aren't enough facts to give you a precise answer. although the person may be guilty of stupidity depending on the circumstances it doesn't sound like a criminal offense. of course there might be public intoxication, disturbing the peace, etc depending on what was involved. hope this helps.
