My oldest son lives with his father. His father has sole custody (I have sole custody of our other child). My son was abused by his stepmother. DCFS is involved. Justice court is involved. I was not given information about the trial nor was I informed that the prosecutor had been changed. I thought... Read more »
Regardless of what was SUPPOSED to have happened, you should take an active interest in this case if you are willing to take custody of your oldest son. If you are NOT willing to take custody and just have hurt feelings because you were not notified, I believe you are out of luck. Hopefully you...Read more »
You can certainly file a police report, because your own testimony is evidence. However, whether charges can be brought depends on the statute of limitations that exists in your state. Most states allow charges to be brought until a certain amount of time after you turn 18 years of age. So, most...Read more »
Our joint fence was completely removed, and they have embarked on a 5 week process to construct a retaining wall and new fence. We were given no written plan or written notice. They have excavated on our property, and they are trying to get us to pay part of their project.
If both landowners paid to install a fence directly on a property line in the past, then yes, they need your permission to remove or replace the fence. Many fences are not built on a property line, but are instead just on one property or the other.
You said you received $11,000, as promised. Then you said you received another bonus--without telling us how much. Bottom line: If you received a second bonus you did not deserve (under your employment contract) then you must repay it.
I took the home over when my father passed away, my father owed back property tax already at this time. I did pay on some of the past due but wasn't able to pay off completely. Well I got notice that due State Utah law if someone is delinquent on property tax for 5 years they can put the home up on... Read more »
They say he will be charged with assault. How will I know this has happened? Both kids shoved each other, but my son shoved first. Should we fight this? At what point should I hire an attorney? The other kid's father is a lawyer.
As it has been five weeks since you posted, I suspect you have already been forced to make a decision. In case this issue comes up again, most of your relationship with the mortgage company is controlled by contract. Many lenders will agree to waive mortgage insurance if your equity exceeds a...Read more »
Since 10 days have already passed, I assume you are already out of the property, unless you retained an attorney that was able to help you work something out with the city. In regards to paying rent and getting a refund from the landlord, any rent paid in advance for days you aren't allowed to live...Read more »
I have been harassed by a troll website for the past few years and they continue to post my copyrighted works, namely: a book and a song. A few days ago, I sent the owner of the site a DMCA take down notice with all of the requirements for take down. I was informed by others that my copyrighted... Read more »
While it's best to provide a specific URL for avoiding arguments about sufficiency of a DMCA notice, you are correct, there is some leeway that a copyright owner has in providing a notice. However, if you are unable to identify the precise location, that itself is indicative that the website owner...Read more »
he bought the house, she bought everything in it. When she died, in her will she left me all of her personal belongings (a handwritten list included with the will) which shows the furniture, etc. I've left everything in place since my father is still alive and don't want him living with just a... Read more »
You can't disinherit your spouse. So regardless of what the will says, your father has a right to the first $75,000 + half of whatever is left over. Do you know if they had a prenuptial agreement? Probably not right?
So yes there is a marital interest. All personal property is...Read more »
until my father dies. My problem is that my brothers and their wives and children are stealing things from my father's house and they are the things my mother left me. I would like to charge them the replacement value of the item from the trust since I can't seem to get them to stop their... Read more »
I am sorry for your predicament. Who is the trustee of the trust? It is the trustee's job to safeguard the property. If they are not doing their job, then your action would be against the trustee. He or she has a fiduciary duty to possess and safeguard the property.
He's a violent roommate and has threatened to put a shock collar on her and has touched her roughly. She's 2. Ive told him multiple times to keep his hands off my dog and he kept touching her even when she was next to me and out of the way
Pets are property. If someone touches your property then you can sue them for trespass against property. The fact that your property is a dog doesn't really matter. Other facts that might matter are those that would weigh in on evidence of the wrongful touching. Things like, does the dog go...Read more »
This is not my practice area, but I will weigh in as no one else has. Enforceable terms of child support should have been taken care of or addressed in the divorce decree (assuming you were once married). Those will govern. If not in the divorce decree or there never was a divorce decree or court...Read more »
The Trustor/Grantor/person who funded the trust is separate and apart from the trust itself. Depending on the form of the trust whether revocable or irrevocable the Trustor can retain some or all of the rights to direct the disposition of the property while they are...Read more »
