The trust states that personal property is to be divided evenly between code executors. My brother is the other co-executor and he removed the property, and changed the locks on house and garage barring me access.

Probate court would be the forum to raise this issue. Unfortunately, even with a trust, your brother's actions may necessitate court involvement to resolve.

An Indiana attorney should be able to answer those questions for you. There are some states where being somewhat estranged or abandoned may eliminate your otherwise possible share in their estate.

Spiteful thing to do, to be sure. But legally, I am unsure you have a case. How did your ex get a hold of those videos? If she got them illegally, you might have something. Even with that though, what she did with them isn't necessarily actionable.

I believe the applicable question is how many cars you insured with them ON October 31, not how many you insured before then.

I do not believe you have any claim to sue.

You lost me at "non assertive conduct" and "rules of evidence". Depending on what context you are referring, you might want to take a look at Rule 408. You may also wish to research the meaning of "testimonial".

Depends on the context, door-to-door sales, contract for the purchase of goods, employment contract, etc. Each will have its own method of getting out of a contract but they nearly all will depend on the other party.

The real question is: how do you prove a lie is a lie? If I testify that I saw a man in a blue car turn right, can you prove I'm lying about what I saw? At best, if you were there too, you could testify that you perhaps saw a green car turn left. Would either of us be lying?
