I purchased my home 2 years ago. I filed chapter 7 5 years ago. One of the judgements I filed on has put a lien on my home I purchased years after my bankruptcy and now it’s holding up the sale of my house. How do I get rid of it?
Owning property and being in a relationship where you aren't married are two different things. If you all own the house legally and there hasn't been any violence, it's doubtful that any one person can force another to move out.

You can do a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the I 130 and for any documents that you signed, but you will not be entitled to a copy of the documents she signed, such as the I 485, Application for Employment Authorization or Application for Advanced Parole, as those belong to her.
I know that the the company has a standard contract that they will not change. I also know that the builder has a very good consumer affairs rating. The state where I currently live requires an attorney for real estate deals, but Nevada does not. I do not know if it will change anything to have an... Read more »
If you feel confident in putting your entire trust and faith in the person on the other side of the deal, that then becomes a personal decision on your part. Also, is the builder being represented by an attorney?
You should get advice--and the services--of an attorney with the Nevada Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where the wreck happened--they give free consults. I'm assuming it's their fault--if its your fault, the fact that he wasn't licensed etc doesn't mean you collect if it's your fault....Read more »
People must drive within the posted speed limit. Do millions of people do what you describe? Yes, because no one wants to linger for very long in a narrow slot between a large rig at highway speed and a concrete median. Your question remains open for a week - consider consulting a Nevada traffic...Read more »
Yes. Report the incident to the police. The police will investigate and will make the determination to file charges or not. Make the report. Even if they don't lay charges there will be a record with police that he was investigated that may be relevent some day.
My husband was arrested last week in NM for a domestic violence charge that was filed by his ex-wife in 2012. He was unaware of the charge because it was sealed, therefore, was unable to address and resolve the issue. Nevada wants him extradited. Is there a way that a New Mexico judge can... Read more »
It's a little difficult to understand exactly what your question might be. From the limited description, it appears you underwent a craniotomy and currently suffer from impaired memory function and it affects what you do under a contract?? I'm not sure. I'm very sorry for the hardship this must...Read more »
My realtor served as my selling realtor and buying realtor. As a result of poor representation on the sale of my home, I am having to send him a demand letter in order to be compensated for monies lost through the sale transaction.

You raise an interesting question; and if these interesting facts involved a lawyer--as opposed to a Realtor who is not a lawyer--the answer would be very clear: Sending a demand letter of the nature you describe to any lawyer would immediately cause a fatal conflict of interest that would require...Read more »
I have attempted to call customers and contact customers, property varies having sat for 60 days to over a year. It's currently taking up space that we could be using for other purpose and most customers do not provide any address, only a phone number and name as we're a small town shop.
A Nevada attorney would really need to address your concerns because the solution might involve state or city laws governing bailments. But your question remains open for two weeks.

Much more information is needed to give you any advice on this. For the best results you should schedule an appointment with a probate lawyer in the vicinity of where the probate of your mother's estate is being handled.
Look at summary judgment in terms of what it means, and you'll realize on its face that it is a decision not to be taken lightly.
