Your permanent resident status that has been issued to you will not end if you are granted a divorce from your U.S. citizen. You have been married for 21 years and you can provide proof of your bona fide marital relationship if your marriage is ever questioned by USCIS.
If you are this fellow's manager or the person who officially schedules his work hours, maybe there is some sort of potential liability. But if not, you just gave him your best knowledge. It did not come with a guarantee of accuracy and ultimately it was his responsibility to determine his work...Read more »
It could depend on additional facts. Although the person opening a vehicle door is generally responsible, if they did not have enough room to open door adequately to get out, they could claim they were squeezed in with no other choice. Good luck
She needs to talk to a lawyer who can help her figure out if she inherited the house either because of Oregon's intestacy laws if the husband didn't have a Will or because the Husband did have a Will. If there were no step children by the husband and he didn't have a Will, the intestacy Laws would...Read more »
Yes, but only for a "permitted" reason as specified in ORS 90.427 and by following the required procedures including being potentially required to pay the state-wide relocation assistance of one month's rent if the landlord is not exempt.
You need to post an expanded, more coherent question. A 14 Day what? 30 Day For Cause Notice w/14 days to cure? Did landlord take rent before or after a Notice of Termination? Exactly what type of Notice was issued? What does "Action was false" mean? Current court status? Have you actually...Read more »

And now hes told me another week out, I decided to go somewhere else and now he wants to charge 20% of the price of... Read more »
It's hard to say but unless he promised you in writing a date by which he would have your car fixed I think you are being unreasonable and you should either pay for the cost of returning the part which he only ordered for you or just let him finish the job and have him guarantee in writing that he...Read more »

Look, getting away from a domestic violence is far more important than a toy hauler. She should research the value, and ask the court to include the value in the division of assets. The court then tries to divide the property equally and can award money or physical property. The path of least...Read more »
Unless you specifically agreed, any security deposit charges or refund is strictly between the landlord and the ex-tenant. If a new "replacement" tenant paid it to the out-going tenant, the new tenant can end up paying for any damages the landlord alleges caused by the out-going person.
My significant other is 18, and wants to leave her household. Her adopted mother is saying that she cannot leave until she is 21. My significant other is terrified that this is true. And therefore, is terrified to leave. Is this a possibility? Or are the fears unjustified?
At age 18 the disabled child is legally an adult. However anyone who feels that they are disabled to the point they need assistance can apply to the court to be appointed as their legal guardian. It is a scientific fact that the brain of any human doesn't reach full maturity until age 25. I...Read more »
If you have a ten year green card, and your husband has separate status, I'm confused as to why you are filling out any sort of marriage based application for either of you. Does he (new husband) not have a green card? If he has a PhD can he not self-petition? If he can go that route, that is much...Read more »
Your cousin does not have the authority to appoint you as the executor of your mother's estate, but she can decline to serve and you can nominate yourself to serve. Ultimately the court decides who to appoint.
I allowed a friend to stay in my home for 5 months and 5 months only, while I was away. He has been paying me rent + utilities, but we do not have a signed agreement. Now that I am returning and he has lost his job, he does not want to leave at the agreed upon time. What action can I take to get... Read more »
Assuming you are referring to a rental in Oregon but not within Portland city limits, you must properly terminate his tenancy, either for cause or for no cause. Since your rental agreement was verbal only, it is a month to month tenancy. If you wanted to limit it to a 5 month term, it had to be a...Read more »
I live in Oregon and I'm seventeen. I graduated early a few months ago, I have a full time job and my birthday is in September. This is my first time living in Oregon with this parent because I moved in after I graduated and I was a resident at Job corps for a year before that. It's just so... Read more »
You are technically not able to commit to any legally binding agreements until you turn age 18 unless you get emancipated by a court proceeding. It probably isn't worth the time and money to file for an emancipation when you are only months away from turning 18. I suppose you could move out and...Read more »
No. It applies to residential rentals. Storage facilities are commercial leases. You still, however, are entitled to either a refund or an accounting for whatever deposit(s) you made at the beginning of the lease.
