Unless your and/or husband had some sort of written contract or lease agreement covering your living in the property owned by his parents there is nothing you can do. The 15 years of mortgage payments you and your husband made were akin to rent; in fact, unless his parents had allowed you and your...Read more »

You and your new husband have a very serious legal problem that cannot be solved by discussing what your husband told you was "his understanding" that all he had to do was give his prior landlord a 60 day written notice before moving out of the apartment he rented before meeting and marrying you....Read more »
Me and my boyfriend got a puppy and we weren’t able to keep him due to us having a baby on the way and it added tons of stress we didn’t need, so we gave him to the human society.

Sure; in America anyone can sue anybody for anything at any time (even without a lawyer in small claims court). Winning the lawsuit is another matter. Save all your receipts, text messages, emails and all other documents.
Generally, the answer to this is no. The Principal should not need to be present for his or her Attorney(s)-in-Fact to use the Power of Attorney document. In light of the recent epidemic of misuse of POAs and the exploitation of the elderly, many banks have attempted to institute additional...Read more »

In the context of successful completion of programming as a condition of probation (conditionally stayed jail or prison time), it not likely a judge will want to get into the details of why a probationer was kicked out of a program. I am skeptical that would be a fruitful approach. Rather, it may...Read more »
The book has many photos of models performing a demo on how to do a certain exercise. Models are wearing clothing with brand logos like Nike or using equipments with brand logos on it. Is that a copyright issue? Would I need to cover all the logos? even though those are items that we own?
Unfortunately this would qualify for infringement. While it’s unlikely that any of these brands would care, namely because it’s free advertising for them, any of them would be well within their right to sue you and shut the project down. To be on the safe side I would definitely either reshoot...Read more »
I mailed in 2 months notice to vacate but landlord says they did not receive it. I believe it's due to wrong address. Once issue was brought to my attention, I mailed in a copy of the notice 15 days before lease ends. They are saying that I must go month to month for a month

Consent is not a defense to the statutory rape of a minor in the state of Minnesota. Thus, marrying this individual would not result in the charges being dropped. Further, the marriage would require parental consent. I suspect the state would not take too kindly to your parents granting you consent...Read more »
