Even if the will says that you get the house, and assuming the house is going through probate, the judge can force the sale if the estate has creditors or other beneficiaries with interests that cannot be resolved without selling the house. I advise you to ask the attorney whether s/he represents...View More
My 4 year old was exposed (supposedly) on Friday, but had surgery on her arm on Saturday, with no precautions taken by the hospital. I spent all day with her and her mother in the hospital on Saturday. Now, the mother states my daughter has tested positive and refused to appear at our exchange... View More

She was/is with him for his time according to our shared parenting plan. He is refusing to allow me to pick up our daughter. Can I take her against his wishes and can I refuse visitation with him due to his positive covid result (
Generally, the Courts are not requiring parents to relinquish parenting time due to a positive COVID test. Has your daughter been vaccinated or is she too young? Does she have any health conditions? Is he wearing a mask, having her do so, and keeping distance?
She (my mother) tells everyone that it's his house ...he gives her money when he can hes an artist (tattoo):and covid has put a huge issue as business goes but he does wait on her hand and foot ....can she kick him out with no notice no nothing no eviction papers
If the proper eviction process is not followed, then he could sue her for unlawful eviction. It sounds like she needs help. If she is not mentally competent, and she has not executed a power of attorney, then someone might need to apply to become her guardian. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to...View More
She left the house to her sister. I knew that. However, they took the business name and accounts and took control of the business PO Box and all incoming checks and entered them into probate in Greene Co. Ohio. I subsequently had to file all necessary paperwork and obtain a new federal EIM and new... View More

I have left several messages with our current property manager but have yet to hear back from them. We have been legal tenants for just over 2 years with no issues. The landlord offered us a lease renewal, but we elected to decline and turned in a 60 day notice as is required in our lease. The... View More
Your landlord would have to evict you, yes. But you don’t want an eviction just especially before you’re set to sign a new lease. After all, the new landlord may decide not to rent to you. So yes you have the legal right to get evicted, which would take longer than the two weeks, but that’s...View More
Yes, a tenant can be evicted. The CDC imposed a moratorium, but only for non-payment of rent - not for other reasons. That expires on June 30,2021, but some courts have ruled that it is unconstitutional. So tenants can be evicted. Check with your local court.
An owner can always sell property, even if leased to a tenant. But the buyer must honor the lease for the remainder of the lease term. The lease does not end when the property is sold, and so long as the tenant is not currently in default or does not breach the lease, there is no grounds for an...View More
So I was driving in Mayfield to go get my shot for covid. I didn't want to be late so I was going a bit faster than I should (confident it was 40 in a 35, maybe 42). There was a officer in a drive facing the road so I slowed down to 36. He pulls out and follows behind me for a few minutes till... View More
Nowhere on the lease does it say they might sell the home. He said he would give her a good reference. Were in the middle of a pandemic. She can't find a home under stress and the landlord wants to start remodeling so he told her he really needs her to find a place. What are her rights
The landlord must honor the terms of the written lease until it expires. But when the lease term expires, if the tenant does not vacate, then the landlord can file for an eviction. If the lease has already expired, then the landlord can give 30 days written notice to terminate the lease at the...View More
She already didn't let me see him for over two months because our Governor had the stay at home order in Ohio and now she is forcing me to get the vaccine if I want to continue seeing my son. I wondering if all this that she is doing is actually legal.
If you were not married to her, and if no court has granted you any parental rights, then she has sole custody and gets to determine who gets to spend time with the child, or even deny time completely. You could apply to the court for parental rights, but a judge might agree that she can refuse...View More
Can I do anything about it? Also if my son is too much for me, can give temporary custody of him to his father? How do I do that? His father doesn't speak to me at all and I have asked for his help before and he will not help at all. Medically I can no longer live with him as he gives me... View More

A lawyer would have to review the actual contract terms to determine if you have a right to cancel, whether their delay was a breach of contract or if the virus lockdown excuses the delay, or whether they failed to comply with all the required consumer protection notices and right of cancellation...View More
I have full custody in ohio and she doesnt have any legal rights as moved to california. Shes demanding I send her to California during the pandemic and I have no clue who she lives with or would be around if something happened.
