A Tennessee attorney could offer the best answer here, but your post remains open for two weeks. This doesn't really look like elder abuse; that's something more along the lines of a person in a position of trust taking advantage of an elderly person. Without more details, it's difficult to say...Read more »

Very often the Creditor will find something that appears to be his and then levy on it. You must keep your money and taxes separate. They cannot take the refund, but once it is a check payable to either of you, or deposited, it is an asset available. You do not have that big of a problem if...Read more »
If you gave it away it would no longer be yours to re-possess unless you have a written contract that would permit you to do so. For example, some animal shelters make the person adopting sign a contract that contains a clause stating that abuse or neglect of the animal would be grounds to take the...Read more »
I am not recommending one way or the other that you subpoena the dentist. And you should be aware that physicians and dentists are exempt from subpoenas to trial and can recover costs and attorney's fees (TCA 24-9-101). Doctors are not immune from subpoena to a deposition. But if you want to...Read more »
No abandonment involved. You are jointly and severally liable for the full Note amount. The cops advice has no relevance to a possible distribution of marital property. Divorce may be an alternative, but it will not pay the note, insurance and taxes. Decide if you want house, then go from...Read more »
I think that you got it reversed. If you do diversion, then your sentence is deferred, then expunged. Regardless, if a record is expunged, then it is not a charge. So, yes, your next one would be a first.
My wife took her car to an auto body shop to fix a paint spot on rear bumper. The car had to be taken back a second time to be fixed properly, but after getting home she found 3 new scratches on front bumper and the interior and exterior was covered in white dust. We don't want to go back to these... Read more »
A Tennessee attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for four weeks. One of the issues that could materialize if you found yourself in court over this matter is that the judge could ask the shop what their response was. And if they state that they offered to repair the damage,...Read more »
If you are referring to your insurance coverage you may be right. You can check your policy. But have you made a claim against the delivery company. If they were negligent, and you didn't sign a release, then the delivery company may be responsible and their liability is not limited...Read more »
Unless you can prove the contract was made in TN, and it will be almost impossible with an oral agreement, you better file and serve a suit in COL. That State may be where you would want to collect it also. Start calling lawyers in COL, and know exactly what happened when you talk to them....Read more »
Probably not a problem. Journal entry is not required and the Seal can be affixed later, but needs to be there prior to the instrument being used or relied upon. Notaries should sign their full names, but often do not.
$638 for Seattle alone and then another $360 for the California trip. Unfortunately I was hospitalized Western State and was there for 3 days.

I can't tell why you would be sued for the facts provided? Did you promise to pay for the trips? She may not have a good case, but unfortunately, if you are sued you should appear at the court date. Otherwise, you risk having a default judgment entered against you.

You might file a Sessions suit for the Lease Breach by not paying, if you know how to serve her. If you get a Tennessee Judgment for the Rent owing, you can file it as a Judgment Lien in whatever County in Maine she lives in. I do not know how many years the Lien will be good for, but this may...Read more »

What does the lease say about damages or venue? Your question is also confusing - did she lease property in Tennessee and move to Maine, or the other way? Typically, you sue the person where they leased the property but you will need to serve her with the lawsuit where she lives now. Here in...Read more »

I would recommend hiring a competent attorney to file a Small Estate Affidavit. The Trust may have messed up the Insurance. Be careful about what County you file in. Only other alternatives is to record an Affidavit of Heirship, and either ask or/and sue the Treasury for the money. It might...Read more »
TennCare can go after the real property, and could possibly go after the proceeds in your hands. But the risk is minimal and it can be insured against. If you want to sell it, find another buyer and/or title co. After one year from date of death, it would be unusual for a creditor to come...Read more »
Two months ago I saw this doctor for the first time. The doctor refused to look at my MRI and refused to consider the possibility of a torn deltoid. He ridiculed me for suggesting this was a possibility and had his nurse help him find a metaphor for how silly it was to expect him to look at my MRI.... Read more »
