Have you checked with the Court Clerk? You need to physically look at the File, which may be difficult to find. Hopefully there is an Order and maybe some Minutes. If not, then you may need a lawyer to get an Order Nunc Pro Tunc entered, or a new Divorce Action.
Grandmother did not owe any bills and her house was paid for. The house was never transferred to my mothers name. I have paid the taxes on it for years. Now my mother is in bad health. Should we put the house in my mothers name now or will it pass to me upon her passing? Thank you.
You must determine who the owner is right now first. A title search and an heirship determination will be in order. Then you and the Mother might seek counsel about Estate Planning. Remember the longer you wait, the chances of judgment liens become more pronounced.
One co-owner (mother) died in August, 2020, remaining co-owner (brother) has refused to provide keys & access to said property & is attempting to buy me out, but demands I pay for expenses that are not affiliated with said property, While I am willing to share half of property taxes &...

These money issues can probably only be addressed through an Action for an Accounting and Conversion. But you basically only have a 3 year SOL. Again the real property needs an agreed conveyance, or an Action for Partition.
after death of parent, my brother, who was an equal owner, under joint tenants with right of survivorship has refused to provide access or keys to the property, which has been co-owned since April, 1994. He is now attempting to make me pay for expenses for that property.
If in fact you are a joint tenant with your brother, then you may wish to help pay for the taxes, insurance, etc. Somebody has to, or the Trustee will sell it for taxes. You may wish to hire an attorney to file a Petition in Chancery for a Sale for Partition. Also you two could buy each...Read more »
There is a clause in our 3 year lease that’s titled “Vacating Upon Termination” and it states “Tenant agrees upon expiration of the term of this lease or upon early termination of the lease for any cause tenant will at once peacefully surrender the leased premises etc.” My question is if...

The answer will depend on the language of your lease. If you have a three year lease- without any provision related to termination prior to this then you have a 3 year lease. The language you provided doesn't sound like enough to allow for an early termination.
There could be numerous criminal charges generated by such a scenario. If you know who the defendant is, tell him to not talk to anyone and hire a competent attorney immediately. An insurance company may need to be notified by your attorney.
Go to Court in a respectful manner. Dress decent and talk to the DA or Judge politely. Quickly explain what happened. Have cash on you. Possibly you will be diverted or dismissed, or you might plea to a MVR nonreportable 9 mph over.
Who told you to bring the child to Court? If it is not an Order from a Judge, then you do not have to. But it sounds like other interested parties want the Child there. Hire an attorney to represent you, and take the Child to Court. Apparently your continued custody is in peril.
Generally the Final Decree is the only Order to be concerned with. But you will need your attorney to examine your Case and advise. It is possible other Orders are still enforceable, and post divorce jurisdiction is retained under that Docket Number.
There are a few other random cabins that dot the street on each side, which accesses my plot. No one can tell me who actually owns the access/entrance road with the other houses on it. My fear is that someone could stack disused cars or piles of wood or let the road fall into disrepair and I... Read more »
I went to the hospital, I was not charged or arrested, yet, I did not have anything on me, keys were not in ignition. Overdose was for opiates(fentanyl). Will a probation office be contacted? Should I get a lawyer? How do I know if they will decide to prosecute or not? Probation is for reckless... Read more »
If no criminal charges were made, then probably no violation has occurred. It is possible the State will learn of violating your Probation Order, but stay away from drugs, work, and you will probably be alright for the next 11/29.
I have filed an appeal but because I was unable to afford an attorney I was forced to represent myself and since I didn't know what I was doing the judge ruled for Tennessee to keep it. I have the option now to ask for a stay and file another appeal to thebest of my understanding. If anyone... Read more »
