Signed away all rights to house in divorce, but spouse hasn’t and won’t refinance to take my name off mortgage. She plans on selling and I will get no money in the sale, would I get hit with a capital gains tax?
Greetings. We would need a lot more information to provide you with a reasonable answer. For example, what type of membership is this? An athletic association, a union, a corporation, a condo or coop, a government entity, or one of many other types of organizations that have members and a board?...Read more »
Your question does not give enough information for an answer. We have no idea of the age or sex of the child nor who the adults are. As to the "section" you refer to, it has nothing to do with sleeping arrangements.

It depends if there was a will or not. And, if the money passed by a beneficiary designation or is in the estate. If an estate proceeding is opened, you should get notice. Or, you can call the clerk and see if one was filed.
He claims he mailed papers but I have not received them. Tonight he was supposed to serve papers, he claimed they were the second round. He wanted to bring them to me at 8pm on a Thursday night. I work 7am-4pm and I do not get home until 530 with picking my daughter up from daycare. He has not... Read more »
You obviously know about the case. While the court will undo any defaults, etc., from lack of service, you should ask for the papers again, or go to the clerk to get them, and not ignore this. Playing the service issue might work, but also might not.

You are conflating real estate law, real estate tax law, and income tax law in a way that is creating an issue that is not an issue. If the adjoining land is a separate tax lot, you will pay two tax bills. You can consolidate tax lots, but the cost of doing so will outweigh the extra 50 cents...Read more »
