The pet resort lost my dog and as a result my dog was hit by a car. This required an ER visit and surgery in order to save his life. The medical visits are not done yet but will probably be about 9000. The pet resorts insurance is only offering me 5500, leaving me to pay the rest of the medical... Read more »
You will likely need to speak to a local animal attorney to write what’s called a demand letter to ask the boarding facility to reimburse you for all the bills.

My sister and I were contacted by my bio dad's brother stating he died and we are next of kin. We have not seen him since we were 3 & 5yo (40 years ago). We were adopted 27 years ago by a man we have always considered our father. The last 8mo or so my bio dad has tried to make contact with... Read more »
In short, the answer is no. There are always extenuating factors that can be involved, but that would require you sitting down with a family law attorney and working through all the details. An adopted child can receive inheritance from the biological parents as well as the adoptive parents, so...Read more »
This question requires much more information to be answered with any degree of accuracy. However, while the age of consent is 16 in the state of Oklahoma, the age of majority is 18, therefore a 16 or 17 year old is still considered a minor. Furthermore, if you are basing this question solely on a...Read more »
The short answer is that if the current tenant has no lease then there would be nothing to stop the church from raising the rent. This is a matter of contract law, so if the church wants to enter into a contract for lease at a higher monthly rent, they surely can do so. However, to be sure you...Read more »

No, you cannot file federal charges against him. The US Attorney decides what criminal charges to pursue in federal court and the District Attorney or Oklahoma Attorney General decides what criminal charges to pursue in state court. You can report the matter to the police. The police may...Read more »
An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, that could be a difficult search query because it could be somewhat broad, coming up in cases ranging from physical injury to debt collection to criminal law. It could possibly yield irrelevant...Read more »
A 17 yo, almost 18, child we know works a full time job. His parents take nearly all, if not all, of his take home pay. This is also true for his sister.

At 80, I am in the process donating several hundred American and European prints and a like number of Japanese woodblock prints, ranging in value from $100 to $12,000 each. Most are classified as "promised gifts" and are with the intended recipient, a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt, fully... Read more »
There is an appraisal requirement for all gifts in excess of $5000. That applies to where you give similar items of property where the total value is above $5,000. Six $1,000 items donated would reqire an appraisal. If you haven't already, you will want to contact the fine art museum to make...Read more »

My main question is this both kids are 12 years and older and have expressed verbally to me that they want to live with me. I am getting remarried and will be moving out of the state of Oklahoma next month.
The law states you must wait 6 months after the divorce is granted to remarry. Also, you would have to follow the provisions of the relocation statute that will be set forth in the decree in you want to move.
This sounds like a pro se divorce. I strongly suggest you consult in person...Read more »
I can't fully answer this without more information. However, if your father had a Will when he died and that Will was admitted to probate then the terms of the Will dictate how the property is distributed. If he died without a will then his wife will acquire 1/2 of the property acquired by...Read more »
She was 11 at the time reported, and the ADA told me I could view/copy the case file when the offended was sentenced. It’s over now and I emailed the ADA about wanting copies of the case (never heard back) including the forensic interview of my daughter. I feel like I as her mom have rights to... Read more »
As the parent of the victim, I would suggest you start by talking to the District Attorney, the supervisor of the ADA, or even the victim witness coordinator at the DA's office. Some of the types of documents you identify are difficult for the public to gain access to - especially if the case...Read more »

I would like to refinance my house to lower rates. I completed chapter 13 bankruptcy earlier this year. The application asks if I've had a bankruptcy in the past 3 years. Is that 3 years from when I filed bankruptcy or 3 years from when I finished it?
