We have resided together for 20 years (last 10 in MI where the house is). We own it jointly. I have made all the payments and have proof. If I move out, and continue maintaining the home and paying the mortgage, can the other person gain financially when we finally sell due to my not residing in... Read more »
Are the cameras on their property, but facing your general direction? If they are, I'm unsure if you can do much about that. Now what they are doing or could do with those recordings is a different matter, and could be actionable in some instances.
There is very little that's private on Facebook. Somehow, what you posted got back to your employer. You may contact a local employment law attorney to see if any exceptions to the general rule of at-will employment apply to you. Generally, though, employers are allowed to take action based on...Read more »
I didn't realize I was going so fast, I was following the flow of the traffic on the turnpike. I was issued 800 dollars in tickets, 1 for reckless driving for doing 20+ and the other for not having my insurance printed out (It was on my phone). I live in Michigan and could not fight the...

Short answer is yes, they probably do through what's called reciprocity. In a nutshell, many states cooperate with each other to enforce licensing restrictions. This prevents people from going between states to avoid penalties.
As to why your license is suspended: it's likely a...Read more »
I am days before closing. My uncle recently passed away and those who were willed the home reached out to see if I'd want to buy the house. I understand if I back out of the original home purchase I lose my deposit. I also know the seller can technically sue me for mortgage payments until the... Read more »
It's clear the prosecutor completely hates Lewis and has not been open to any negotiating and we feel our 7,000 dollars got us not alot of fight from our attorney but then again we don't know if he has done all he can yet ? Louie is guilty of possession not possession with intent there is... Read more »
There is not a whole lot anyone can do at this point. Your attorney's job at this point is to advocate for whatever terms of the plea agreement and as low of a sentence as that agreement allows. For better or worse, Lewis plead guilty to PWID, not possession. Regardless if there were talks...Read more »
Putting my two weeks notice in, the next morning when I showed up to see about the paperwork for such a thing, my assistant manager yelled at me to leave the store because I had quit, even though I hadn't filed the paperwork yet, punched me and physically threw me out of the back door of my...

Sounds like there is a lot going on here and more facts are needed to fully evaluate your claim. If the sexual harassment was so severe or pervasive that it affected your ability to perform your job, you may have been subjected to a hostile work environment. I would recommend reaching out to an...Read more »
I live in Michigan. I was sued over an unpaid balance to an electric company. I tried telling the debt collectors that I had never lived at the address in question. A family member had used my info to get power on at their residence, which they failed to pay. I was served by a packet left at my... Read more »
You can. If successful, you may get a chance to answer, and proceed to trial or try to negotiate with the electric company. It will be tough though. Most process servers are pretty good documenting their attempts to reach you, and if where it was left under the door is your address, you'll...Read more »

In 2009, my neighbor filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and kept her house with two mortgages, 100k+ and 25k. Her personal obligation for the second mortgage was discharged. A loan modification of the second mortgage in 2015 adjusted the principle, term, and interest rate. In late 2017, my... Read more »
If the borrower on the second mortgage loan received a discharge in bankruptcy, and did not reaffirm the debt, that borrower no longer has personal liability, and cannot be pursued for the loan, whether or not the amount owed is a "deficiency."
Michigan is a No-Fault state. This means that all drivers are required to purchase insurance on their vehicles and that if there is an accident, regardless of who is at fault, each driver's insurance pays to cover their own medical bills, lost wages and damage to their own vehicle. The...Read more »
We have a dog and 2 small children. We had an electrical fence installed to contain our dog. We live in Michigan. Are there any laws that required pet owners to get a fence or containment system installed?
This is a far more complicated question than it appears. Michigan law makes it a crime to "use ... any device to eavesdrop upon [a] conversation without the consent of all parties." and further prohibits installing a recording device in a 'private location' without the consent...Read more »

I got a ticket for crossing an electronic railroad signal. When I look up MCL 257.667 it says that when the signal is flashing you must come to a complete stop and only proceed when it is safe to do so.
