We have shared custody 50/50, but the monthly child support I pay is significant. Should this be calculated on her earning potential instead of her actual since she chooses to work part time and is using my child support her?

Yes. All wills and POAs are valid in any state you move to so long as they were valid under the law of the state where they were made.

The Original tenant gave a security deposit of $5000 to rent our home. The original tenant and his girlfriend signed a renewal lease (month to month) the next year. The girlfriend is now trying to sue us to get the deposit back since we missed the 45 day deadline after they moved out. Does she... Read more »
No. She would have had to be on the lease, and by your description, she was not, and she did not pay the deposit. However, if the renewal lease stated that the security deposit will be applied to the renewal lease and the tenants (with her being named as a tenant) retain all rights to the...Read more »

The shop is located on my property, and everything is in my name. If I am not able to force them out, can I... Read more »
You can withdraw from the company, boot it out of your home, and demand liquidation of the assets, and either pay your co-owner their fair share of the costs they expended on the equipment, or otherwise buy out out the equipment. Meantime, start a new LLC and begin cabinet making under a new...Read more »

Yes, they can do this. You MUST request a hearing within the time frame provided in the notice of revocation, and pay the fee.

It’s a one point offense. Points stay on your driving record for two years from the date of the violation, but only if you pay the fine or go to trial and are convicted. If you request a trial, the officer may not show and you’ll be found not guilty; or, if found guilty, you can ask the judge...Read more »
"Self-help" evictions are frowned upon in Maryland, and risky for landlords. You do not say whether you have a reasonable belief that the tenants will not move out at termination, but if you do have good reasons to think that (such as because the tenants said as much), you might be able to...Read more »

You say he is your ex-husband, meaning you are divorced? And his name is already off the deed, so you are the sole owner named on the deed to the property? In that case you do not need him at all. Never call him again. The only signature needed to sell the house or to refinance the loan (if you...Read more »
Promised early expungement, but new States Attorney doesn't want to grant. Plea deal was reached in Harford Circuit Court, and all components of deal were met in full and on time with no additional problems.
If you can prove the terms of the plea deal to specifically include early expungement (which all the state can do is agree not to object to it, or consent to the request, because it is up to the judge to grant such a request), then yes, you can enforce the plea agreement and block the State from...Read more »
