Sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is hard enough by itself but then to have family issues on top of that makes it worse. Based on the limited amount of information you gave you need to contact an attorney as soon as feasible because you most likely have more rights than they are claiming you... Read more »
Can I get prosecuted for stealing
answered on Feb 9, 2022
Are you married still? Are the any injunctions in place? Do you have access to the account normally? However, you will not probably get a direct yes or no answer on this from any attorney because there are always many facts that go into things. Contact a family law attorney to assist you in...

Can a parent make a donation to the school (501c3) and then ask for the money back if they move or enroll their child elsewhere?
answered on Jan 5, 2022
The parent can ask - but there isn't anything requiring the refund. There is no federal law, and most states classify the donation as a gift and therefore no longer the property of the person giving the donation, and thus not required to be returned. However, if the funds were donated with... Read more »

It depends on a lot of things. The wording of your decree regarding debt, the timing of the purchases, and whether it is a debit or credit card. I wish I could help you more, but I would hire an attorney to help you clear it up.
I am now trying to get a mortgage and the mortgage Companies underwriters want proof that this judgment is no longer collectible or enforceable. Would I need a lawyer to get that proof or is there any way to get proof that the judgment is no longer collectible?

You need a lawyer. You shouldn’t for something like this, but unfortunately you do.
Its not being paid back, and its going on my credit report. What should I do next? How can I prove it is the person that I suspect it to be that is responsible for this? I disputed the mark on my credit report, but I don't know how to prove to them it wasn't me.

You definitely do need a lawyer; but not to sue the bank.
my sister works at the bank. She spent most of the money in the checking before notifying me of the PD.
answered on Apr 3, 2019
Not until someone delivers an original or certified copy of your mother's death certificate to an officer of the bank. If your sister is not a beneficiary and is taking money out of any of your mother's accounts that contain payable on death clauses she is stealing; report her.
Not certain which I need to do

Banks are required to turn over funds after 5 years of inactivity. Inactivity is defined by statute. You should be good if you are within that time frame. If the assets are $50k or less and there are no unpaid creditors, an affidavit should suffice. Most banks have forms they prefer. If yours... Read more »

Depends on when they filed the case against you. Generally if it's filed within a couplw years of the check they are good without looking at the statute. However, you might have grounds to file a Motion to Dismiss for Failure to Prosecute due to the length of time it's taken them to apprehend you.
