It sounds like you might need an emergency motion to modify whatever underlying custody agreement / order is currently in place.

If no order is in place, then your kid can stay with either parent.

Q: Is there a statute of limitations to filing charges on vpo?

I have police reports of the vpo but no charges were filed

Jessica Brown
Jessica Brown answered on Jul 16, 2021

Not really. If you’re in danger or risk of imminent harm, you can file a VPO.

That said, if your abuser has left you alone for over 15 years and shows no sign of coming around, you could have court costs assessed against you.

Q: Is it legal to drive my friends vehicle without him in the car if I'm not on the insurance?
Jessica Brown
Jessica Brown answered on May 5, 2021

It's a different question if it's "legal" versus if it's covered by his insurance. It's "legal" as long as you have your friend's permission to drive their vehicle.

However, their insurance policy's terms would determine if you were a...

I'm sorry to hear you are in this position.

If you left, your parent(s) could call the police and DHS and try to force you to return. Depending on how close you are to 18, their response could be different.

I'm happy to talk with you about some options. I was previously an...

The answer depends on the wording in the deed and the factual circumstances. It's not clear from your description who are the joint tenants on your deed. You should take the deed to a real estate attorney for review and advice concerning how to get the deed corrected.

Q: Can I keep money wired into my account by accident?

I had a loan transfered into my account for $6900 yesterday. Today an additional $6900 was wired in. Can I keep that money? Or is it inevitable to have to pay it back. The loan was only for $6900.

I paid a wire fee twice, once for each wire.

James Tack Jr
James Tack Jr answered on Mar 19, 2021

You will have to pay it back. They will eventually discover it. However, a better course would be to call the loan company and let them know of their mistake. You can ask them to reimburse you for your wire fees.

Q: I have some friends from out of the country. They’ve raised money for charity and want to donate to American charities.

They can’t directly donate from their country. Could they send me the money and me donate 100% for them?

Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Jul 3, 2020

It might depend on why they can't do that. If it is because of laws in their country prohibit them from doing so, doing it through a third-party might be seen as the same thing for all intents and purposes. Also, if it is a significant sum that could involve tax considerations in connection... Read more »

Q: If I'm the sole caretaker of a family property shouldn't I be compensated
William Jaksa
William Jaksa answered on Oct 16, 2019

There is no right to be compensated. That is something that you should discuss with your family. There are civil torts that address unjust enrichment that might provide you with some legal support. However, your compensation for any investment/labor/expenses should have been made clear beforehand.
