William N. Sosis' answer
Appeals from trial court decisions are 'as of right', so most likely yes. But a reliable answer requires that you first speak with an attorney. An attorney will evaluate the specific facts of your case before providing you with the best answer. However, the courts use strict rules and timetables so if you want to appeal act fast and contact an attorney for a no-cost consultation.

There is no way of knowing who will win the sheriff sale. This is very different from an auction. If it was a short sale, you do not control anything, the lender does and statistically most short sales fail.

Q: can landlords put interest on late charges? I got charged 40 every month even though it was on time. for that 1 time.

1 Answer | Asked in Contracts and Real Estate Law for New Jersey on
Answered on Oct 16, 2018
Jubilo Lopes Afonso's answer
Do you have a lease which allows him to charge you late fees as additional rent? If you do, then it is considered rent, and every month you haven't paid it, it could be considered late. If you don't have a lease or it doesn't state that the late fees are considered rent, then he can't enforce that against you in landlord tenant court.

William N. Sosis' answer
Children have a right to see both their parents. A custodial parent cannot unilaterally decide to stop the other parent from parenting his children and being part of their lives. Unless your Order prohibits your parenting time or imposes certain restrictions then it's likely your parenting rights have been violated and you need to have the court enforce your rights.

Q: If an insurance policy check is put into an estate account does that make it part of the estate?

1 Answer | Asked in Estate Planning and Probate for New Jersey on

Jay Schmerler's answer
If the insurance check is related to a policy refund or some claim made by or for the decedent, then those funds are part of the estate. It should be deposited into the estate account and can then be used for any estate expenses. I don't understand why your sister "wants it back". If it was your sister's insurance policy, then it was likely a short term loan to pay the funeral expenses.
