On Feb 18, 2015 I was stopped at Kohl's for allegedly shoplifting a purse worth about $50. I never heard anything more about it after that day until now. Apparently they filed a criminal complaint in my maiden name on March 30, 2015. I am supposed to go in to jail to be booked and my OR is... Read more »

He is not lucid. Is there a way for my mother (they are married) to get durable power of attorney over him or is there another option? She is looking to refinance her home at a lower interest rate so that she can afford to stay there after he passes.
Unfortunately as your father is not lucid, he cannot sign a Power of Attorney. Your mom would have to get a guardianship over him through the Court. This all takes time and expense and the Court would have to consent to refinancing the house.
After your dad passes your mom should be able...Read more »

A friend of mine informed me that their wife's employer threatened to fire their employees if they posted on social media that there was a positive covid-19 case at their store.
