You need to object to the admission of the documentary evidence when it is being offered into evidence at trial. The Judge will decide if the admission is prejudicial, relevant and admissible.

Had you ever seen these documents before? Did you have an attorney representing you?

Well, initially, have you talked to your neighbors about it? I always suggest trying the "neighborly" way before doing anything else.

If you can't resolve things informally with your neighbors, then I'd suggest you get a survey done of your property -- and don't trust any past one. Make sure you have the correct survey before you go off half-cocked. Armed with the survey, you could have an attorney send a formal letter to your neighbor with whatever request you have to make things...

If both of your names are still on the deed, the answer is no - not without your permission. I suggest you contact the realtor(s) involved and let them know that you do not consent to the sale, if true.

Best of luck to you.

No idea. I'd google it and see if you can locate the information about the particular lawsuit you're interested in. I tried but, not knowing why you believe you may be eligible to apply to join one of the several lawsuits out there, my ability to come up with any sort of suggestion was too limited.

You need to review this with a lawyer. However, if you write a Will and leave your interest in the LLC to her and, at the same time, insert a provision in your Operating Agreement to express that that is your intent, you should be able to accomplish this.

Remember that there will be an inheritance tax on the value of the LLC that passes to her, and you must provide for that.

You can also review with a lawyer if it makes sense to have the LLC jointly owned between you and her....

I'll be honest . . . your situation is way too complicated to get a competent answer here. You really need to sit down with an attorney who practices regularly in the Orphans' Court, and discuss your situation in detail with him/her. At that point, you can pose your question. And you should do this immediately as there are surely deadlines and time limits in the current court litigation.

Best of luck to you.
