I need to know if she can legally do this. I bought the policy, paid for it, signed all the paperwork. It took us months to file the claim, and just as the check was issued she had her lawyer call to declare her as “the contact”. This would not have happened as it did if our agent was involved,...

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. If you have already demanded the executor repay the money she has inappropriately taken, you can have a lawyer send her another demand letter.

Your employer can require you to wear a mask. If you have a medical note indicating that you cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition, that does not mean you get to take the mask off and work like you did before the pandemic. Rather, the employer as the obligation at that time to determine...Read more »

She currently is studying in Mexico and fully employed but I would like her to come visit me after the pandemic border restrictions are over. Can she still enter to the us without any problems? She has her visitors visa still... Read more »
Your wife should carry with her significant documentation to show that she is only coming to the USA to visit and she intends to return to Mexico. Because she is married to a USC their is a presumption that she intends to immigrate and her visitor visa may be cancelled.
It is difficult to know how to respond to your question without more information. Certainly, if someone has falsified a document and used it in court, there is no way a judge would allow the document to be used UNLESS no one testified or proved that the document was fake. On a different point, if...Read more »

It depends on what your lease says about the amenities. Typically, amenities are not included in the lease and would have no bearing on your rent. You can ask your landlord about this and see what their position is.
Dealer is blaming the DMV for no tags...it's getting an obvious lie. Dealer puts me off his tag title company and him leave me stranded with expired tags and have excuses "it's Covid" and "it's a gov van".
As an employee you must comply with the dress code and uniform requirements of your employer.

i was off work accordingly to my doctor's exemption note from 1/21/21 - 2/11/21. I went back to work from 2/12/21 until about 3/10/21 which was my last day. The new 2021 covid law came out 3/29/21. Do I still get paid for my sick covid?
That is unlikely. The new law would have covered you if you had to miss work due to doctor ordered quarantine but because you quit before the law went into effect, you are not going to be eligible. Good luck to you.
You have asked no question. If you are wondering if it is lawful for your employer to terminate you because you did not disclose that you were having flu-like symptoms until 6 days later after you got the test results, the answer is yes.

No. HIPAA is a medical provider and insurer statute, not an employer statute. However there are laws that protect an employee's medical privacy. That said, in today's climate there is nothing unlawful about an employer knowing your status as infected or not with the virus. Anyway, the...Read more »
The one day lease isn't the problem. A contract (including a lease) is not valid if it has zero obligations. You are also limited in the number of legal tenants to two per bedroom. Further, it seems likely that such a lease would be deemed to have an "illegal purpose" and be void...Read more »

Depending on where you live, it may be a violation of a local law and contacting the City and waiting would be your cheapest option. I would also expect that you have a claim for private nuisance against the neighbor, and you could seek an injunction, but that would be expensive.
Things started with neighbor whom moved out with harassment towards my family and I. A friend living across street from him then continued to do the same to us depriving us of peace in our own home. This is 24/7 and has been ongoing for over a year at least. Things have escalated, they’ve... Read more »
In order to file a lawsuit in Federal District Court, there has to be "diversity of citizenship" (meaning you live in 1 state while the defendants live in another). The amount of damages also has to be in excess of $75,000.
