Q: If I am primary on a car that I co-signed what rights do I have

Peter Munsing's answer
Primary and co sign are different. Look at whose name the title and registration are in. That's who is the owner. If it's him you have a claim for what you put into it, any insurance required etc. That would be a set off. Suggest you mediate with someone he respects.

If you believe that your brother is incapacitated and being abused, your best chance is to file for guardianship over your brother. However, be aware that in Indiana the presumed first choice of guardian is actually the person's POA, followed by their spouse.

Your neighbor can record your activities from her property. And your husband can, if he wants, leave the house early in the morning. You didn't say what you want to know, but I don't see that either of you has a case.

Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer
No, it is not illegal for a 15 and 17 year old to be having consensual sex in Indiana. Absent a position of power held by the 17 year old you are covered by Indiana's Romeo and Juliet laws that allows for 14 and 15 year olds to have consensual sex with peers up to 4 years older.

Your position should be that you own that trailer now because you did what they asked you to do, made it your home, fixed it up, and now it is yours. This is one area in which possession is 9/10 of the law. You are in possession, so stay in possession.

Matthew Lane Kreitzer's answer
You should, under no circumstances, remove her property from the home until after going through proper eviction procedures. You should locate a landlord/tenant attorney in your local area to discuss what notices have to be given and what length of time you need to wait before eviction proceedings.

Roy Lee Warren's answer
Well you could request a restraining order but you would need to explain to the judge why you need it. Typically people outside have no expectation of privacy unless there is a

"special circumstance". If pictures were posted over the internet then you would have recourse because your son is not a public figure.

They can definitely try to deny you as they do many other people for almost no reason. If so you need to appeal, which can be very costly. IN NJ they really don't want people to have weapons.

Wesley Winsor's answer
Animals are considered property. She now has the animal, so I think that it would be hard to take it away from her. If you still had the dog you could have claimed the puppy "abandoned" and went through the process of changing ownership. Unfortunately, I don't think you can do much at this point.

You may be able to sue the apartment complex for the mistake on the part of their employee. However you probably should immediately pay the towing company, to keep the costs from continuing to mount.

Generally, yes. In this case, the mall is considered private property, and the lengthy stay of the car may warrant its removal from the premises.
