Anthony M. Avery answered on Mar 17, 2020

You may be an Heir At Law, and the Heirs are now the owners as Tenants In Common of the real property. Someone that knew her can execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. This tells the world who the titled owners are, that is it becomes their source of title.

If you know who this person is, you could file for an order of protection. He may also be violating criminal laws so a call to the local DA's office may be an option as well.

Anthony M. Avery answered on Nov 18, 2019

It is very doubtful that TN LEOs will arrest you for going to the County Clerk's Office. But when you get pulled over, it will be bad. And you will not want any wedding announcements. Unless there is a substantial amount of property/money involved, you are better off hiring a good KY lawyer to... Read more »

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 28, 2019

You have not disclosed enough information. Is the seller the same person who transferred title? And where is the vehicle? Your title may be fraudulent, so you may wish to call DOS about its status.

The landlord/owner can file a Detainer Warrant against you whether you signed a Lease or not. But it must be first filed, served or posted, and then the Court gives a Judgment for Possession.

Q: What if the information the department of safety gives you to reinstate your license in tn is innacurate ?

Dept of safety came up with 3 Past offences all dated in the 90s. The info is wrong. Like the phone number doesn't exist,the county is wrong,the ticket number isn't right. I've called around and tried to get it straightened out but no one can find the tickets the dmv have on their file.

You probably need to request an Administrative Hearing before a Department of Safety Hearing Officer. Hopefully it is not too late, and you will need an attorney.

Just because of a job dismissal licenses are not revoked. But if someone makes a complaint to the Regulatory Board about the reasons for the firing, then the Board/Issuing Agency may act upon the Licensee for those reasons.

Q: I have a question concerning how to get money overseas.

Is there more than one way to get money to somebody from their bank, over seas who is not a citizen of that country? I was told that the only way they could do it was to go thru somebody else's account and that person had to send it to them from their account. I think its a scam, am I right?

Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Aug 4, 2019

You could be. It's probably best to stick with the mainstream methods through reputable banks. But no matter who handles it, the process is always susceptible to threat. Good luck

Q: If you are called and summoned to court but you never got paper work or signed anything for the summons.

It wasn’t your case can they arrest you. Or have a warrant for your arrest?

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Jul 25, 2019

If it was a criminal manner, then an Arrest Warrant can issue which is executed by arrest, or an Indictment which is also executed by arrest. If it is a civil manner, either a Default Judgment against you can be entered, or if you are a witness, a possible contempt citation could occur.

You should be able to legally. Once you turn 18, you are no longer a child under Tennessee law and may choose where you wish to live.

If you have a good relationship with your parents/guardians you should be careful in how you go about this to preserve that relationship if possible. Good...

Q: can my mom report the car "stolen" if my name is also on the car insurance?

My mom and I got into a petty argument and she threaten to call the police and report the car stolen if I take it, but I need it to go to work.

Anthony M. Avery

If she is the Owner, and you take it without her permission, that is Theft of Property, or at least a Joy Ride. The Insurance is irrelevant to ownership.

As a Next Of Kin, you and the others can demand the return of the Security Deposit. If not paid over, then you can sue as the Next of Kin of the Decedent Tenant. You are not liable for his debts.
