My friend is between permanent living spaces and is using my address to receive mail temporarily. She just renewed her drivers license online and used my address. Can she damage my credit or access my personal finances in any way now that she is recognized as living here on a NYS document?
It would seem unlikely, without having more sensitive personal information such as social security number, mother's maiden name, or things of that nature that most financial institutions use as safeguards. Additionally, there are certain formalities observed in transferring ownership of a...Read more »
My mom is my landlord and I have a written contract to live at home with “terms subject to change by mom at any point”. I tried smoking weed a long time ago which she didn’t like. I stopped for the most part except for a week ago at a friends. My mom forced me take a random drug test or she... Read more »
If you are no longer a minor, your parents do not have to continue to allow you to reside in their home. However, like any other landlord, there are appropriate legal steps that must be taken before you can be evicted from the property. These legal proceedings generally take many months and as a...Read more »
We signed a contract in January, paid a down payment and expected to close 2 weeks ago but the title company wouldn’t release the title until a problem with the pool was fixed.

I got married abroad a year ago and hyphenate my last name with my husband name (Evans-Karalis). Now my foreign passport has my married last name, but the green card, that will expire in 2026, has my maiden name. I have marriage certificate translated in English. Will I have any problems to enter... Read more »
You should carry the marriage certificate with you at the time of travel but you should not have problem because upon your arrival to the US border the CBP officer will take your fingerprint scan and match it to the green card anyways. Best wishes!
Generally no. Other factors may change the answer (any fatality invovled, Class A endorcement or not, etc). Careless driving summons are among the frequently issued tickets in NJ just like reckless driving ones in NY.
If it's in a divorce case, then you'd file an order to show cause for an amended judgment. You'd need to submit an affirmation/affidavit stating the reason for the correction. Schedule a consult with a NYC Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
If it is in your name already, you need to pay the liens to keep the condo. You list them as secured debt. If it is not in your name, but will be some day, you list it on the statement of financial affairs.
My beloved father passed away in May of 2020 due to COVID and the house he owned was passed down to my two siblings and I. We all have a room full of personal items. We have all signed a document last year making my sister in charge I believe. I can’t quite remember exactly what the document was... Read more »
Although your question is limited to the items in your room, the real issue seems to be about control of the property your mother previously owned. If your mother died without a will, her New York real property passes to her heirs, which would be her children if she was not survived by her spouse....Read more »
