  1. My husband and I found out about a mobile home park (large and slightly ran down place) that was selling some of the the mobile homes that needed various stages of of repair and prices starting at $500 and going up from there. We we're in desprite need of a place as our previous landlord sold the property he was renting us to someone else without telling us and the new guy gave us 45 days to get out. Anyway we looked at several of the trailers and settled on a newer one (late 90s early 00s) that had the best structure and needed the least amount of major work. Since someine stole the furnace water heater half the light fixtures and of course the stove and fridge and diswasher... And it only had 2 hole in the floor and a few broken windows but it was mostly just really dirty... Anyway they only charged us $500 to buy it outright and gave use 2 months free lot rent since they figured it be 2 months before we could move in... It took 2 weeks lol... Anyway they only gave us a receipt that said $500 paid for lot xxx in xxx park (its 2 parks in 1) and they said when they go to pay 2017 taxes they will inform us so we can get the title. Well its been 3 months since the tax bill came in our mailbox under some mans name and they have still not contacted us about the title. I asked them about it when we paid the rest of the lot rent on monday and the guy said you'll have to talk to mom about that she's out sick let me take your phone number again and ill have her call you... Ive talked to others in the oark that did the same thing and there are some that's been here 2-3 years and have not gotten a title and was told they cant move the home (most are too old anyway) i know our county requires it to have a peaked roof and be no more than 20 years old or have been 100% reconstructed with the peaked roof and proof of remodel ect.. Anyway we are wanting to buy a little land futher south in the county and after thw home was inspected was told it was ok to move as long as it isnt within city limits. Well I'm worried that 1.) they dont have the title at all 2.) If we try to move it without the title in our name they will try to cause problems say we are stealing it or something. The receipt doesnt say for the purchase of just paid on lot xxx so they could try to say that it was lot rent or something cause we get the same receipts when we pay lot rent. 3.) If we do something to make them mad and they try to kick us out i dont know what we'd do other than be out that $500 plus the costs of repairs... We've already put 500 just to make it livable. So I guess my questions are: 1.) Can we get a title in KY with nothing more than the receipt and the serial number if its in someones name other than the parks people? 2.) If we cant get the title for whatever reason can we still legally move it out of the park? What if we give them notice or something? 3.) If they decide they want us out of the park for whatever reason and we still dont have the title are we forced to leave it, ask them to buy it back, move it out too or can we resale it ourselves as long as we follow the parks guidlines for tenets (ie they run a background check cause its within 1000 yards of an elementary school) I love my little trailer but i dont want to keep putting money into something thats not truly mine. I know i should have gotten title with payment but they have over 250 trailers and they said they just took ownership of this one a few months before we bought it. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I've been in a relationship with my husband since 1998. He purchased a home in 2000 when we moved into it together. In 2002, we got married. He says that I am not entitled to any of the house since he had it before we were married. I haven't worked outside the home for ten years so I'm worried that I will be homeless after. Please help.
  3. so my truck is in my mother's name and my tags expired. She wouldn't go with me to renew them so I bought a 2018 sticker from my friend . Long story short I got pulled over and they are charging me with a class D felony. Shouldn't it be conversion and not theft or improper plates .
  4. i need serious help. My landscum wouldn't fix a thing in my house so i had to hire outside help, i then deducted this out of my rent. She was also supposed to come spray once a month for cockroaches she failed to do so. i was hurt in the house the laundry room door fell off of the hinges and hit me and my dryer breaking the glass on the dryer door. i told her i was moving she hit me with an eviction two days later. She has decided to sue for back rent i held for fixing problems in the house. im also counter suing for the rest of the money owed for repair. we did a walk through yesterday and there was no damage to the house and i also cleaned it completely, shes said she not giving back the deposit because she feels i owe the money. lts doesn't mention in our lease reasons she can with hold rent ( i wrote the lease) and she never sent me anything about my deposit not even a receipt. My question is, what can i do to get my deposit back as im already suing for the max in small claims court
  5. Just found out a friend of mine was giving her daughter adderall adhd meds. She said her daughter life was at risk. My friend is pleading guilty what could happen to the mom?
  6. Ok try to make this not too long. My daughter just turned 18 on 1221 and was arrest on 1228 for having pot and pills and drug par. I'm not saying she wasn't wrong for having these this. But a needle was on her. In the police report she was shooting up in the drive while ordering food. This was the reason the sheriff was called. The kicker is my daughter is type 1 diabetic has been since the age of 4. She explained this to the sheriff and he must of just ignored it. Her bond was15 thousand cash so she spent up Til Tuesday before seeing the judge we were in the court room but they had her thru video. So she came up judge had prosecutor read her charges and still shooting up in the drive thru. The judge said bail stays. I was freaking out. Judge said i will speak with after I'm finish. I went up and explained my daughter wasn't shooting up that she was type 1 diabetic and he was suprised it wasn't in the police report. I also explained she had never been in trouble and she had a 4.00 gpa and schlorship. He lowered her bond and accepted a signature bond. My question she intry to get the police report corrected or don't worry about it.
  7. Been residing in apartment for little over three years, through four management changes, and current manager seems to be trying to get rid of me. During all the upheaval of mgmt changes, I often took my concerns and complaints to the property owners, hence why I feel I'm being harassed and litigated out of my apartment. After many impromptu "inspections"( I feel were attempts to check my home for visitors or recent purchases), I've been cited for things like having aluminum foil drip pans in the stove burners, the oven not being cleaned ( this was the recent one-after Christmas holidays is when it was checked), or having my bedroom door locked during inspection ( yes, I was in the room asleep and did not know she was there). This person often leaves notes about one thing or another one of my favorites was the note about fixing my car in the parking lot. When in actuality, I was checking the fluid levels etc. With all of this pettiness, according to them I've accumulated three violations against my lease. I strongly believe this to be in retaliation for my going over their head and calling the corporate offices. They I also believe have given them the green light to get me out of here. There have been other issues like errors on their part about my lease, omitted or amended parts that affect their ability to evict me and other things as well. Is there a law that can protect me from this type of petty harassing and or a potential circumstantial eviction?
  8. Been doing A2 year sentence for 4 years on probation been to rehab 3 times and had to sanctions can I get a lawyer to file the paperwork to get to get time credited toward my sentence
  9. Ok to make a log story short! My Sister which is over age, my 16 year old daughter and her 15 year old friend was in a single car accident! Well I did sue the insurance company for injurys to my daughter which there is 15,000 in the bank but is now held up by the courts due to! My daughter has received threats she was going to be killed by the 15 year old which was in the wreck with my daughter, like I said long story short I have message after message my child being bullied, harassed, threatened, had to go on home bound and could t go to school anymore because of this girl! So it was oveious it was not going to stop so I went to the courts and filled harassment charges and no contact order on this little girl! Mind you this is 8 mo this after the wreck! Well the 15 year old got put in probabtion and was very upset! That same month which she found out we got the charges on her she went to this insurance company and told them that my 16 year old was driving and that my sister was not! We was threatened she would make sure she would do everything in her power to hurt us! Well that she is just doing! So now she made a recorded claim to the insurance company that my sister wasn't driving and my daughter so! So insurance company is now trying to sue me for the 15,000 back and charge me I'm assuming for fraud! The police report states me sister was driving and 911 proves it was called in that the way I reported! It's clear this is a case of someone tryig to get back at someone because we filed charged on them! If I thought someone had that kind of secret I don't think I would be filing charges in court on them! But the judge.out the hearing in what he called obeyance and I don't have A lawyer due to can't afford one but then again I don't feel like I should waste money on one because I know shes lieing and all they have is someone saying it! Someone of which I had just placed harassment charges on and someone that had 8 months or longer to report it if it had been true. So the judge put a hold on the bank acce but my daughter is now gonna be 18 in may2018 and is wanting her deserved money to buy her a car so can get back and forth to a job! My questions are have you had anything like this before and if so what happen! How long does the insurance company have to sue me? Car wreck happened 11/2016! I also would like to ask how the world can they take an underage child's word on soemthing so serious! I give the insurance company's lawyer all the messages from the girl threatening me and my child! Threatening she would make our lives a living hell! But he the lawyer claims the girl making the claim against us had nothing to gain! Tell me she didn't! She's got right what she wanted! Which was lydia to not get the money, not get a car and to punish us for get harassment charges on her! I just need some direction here! It's been 4 almost 5 months since last time I was in court and everytime I contact the lawyer for the insurance company he tells me they will be going forward with the claim , threatening me this and that is going to happen if I don't return the money back! Keeps asking for the money but not moving very fast in court cause it's been like is aid almost 5 months! I'm not giving money back to them and me not guilty! Heck I wasn't even in the car accident my underage child was! Can they come back on her when she turns 18? So many questions but for now I'll leave it at all! Thank you listening ! I need all the advice and information I can't get! Can not afford an attorney!

  11. A few years back, I gave my father custody of my children. It was permanent custody. He moved to Florida a year ago. He was going to give me custody back now that I have made some life changes but got upset with me and now cut off all contact. Was he aloud to just up and move out of state without letting the courts know first? How would I go about gaining custody back of my children without having to go to Florida? Is there any way? He will not let me visit with my children no more. What can I do about this?
  12. I bought a camper from a lady on Facebook market place. She told me everything worked the air and the heat. No leaks and only a few light bulbs were out. The reason we needed a camper is because our house burned and we needed a place to stay on our land with my grandson.

  16. Was Wondering If Anyone Knew Of How To Find Out What That Statute Of Limitations For Prosecution Are On The Following Charges(Some Of Them Might Not Be Listed With Their Correct Legal Term-So Bare With Me. Lol!): 1: D.U.I W/Special Circumstance(Hit & Run-Resulting In Death Of A Child) 2: Vehicular Manslaughter 3: Negligent Homicide 4: Depraved Indifference(Again, This Is Relating To What I Mentioned Above In #1) Also, If There Are Any Other Charges That Might Fit This Situation(I'd Love To Hear About Them): 15 Years Ago, On August 11, 2002, My 15 Year Old Little Sister Shelly Was Vacationing In Florida With 2 Of Her Friends & Their Mothers. Shelly & Her 2 Friends Were Waiting To Cross Hwy98 In Destin, When A White Pick-Up Truck Driving Recklessly With A Watercraft/Trailer Attatched To The Back, Lost Control, & Jumped The Curb--Striking All 3 Girls...My Sister Shelly Was The Only One Of The 3 Girls That Was Killed...Her Two Friends Suffered Non-Life Threatening Injuries(Thank God!) The Driver Never Even So Much As Hit His Brakes, Nevermind Stopping. When The Pick-Up Struck Shelly, It Kinda Grabbed Her By Her Left Shoulder & Flung Her 40ft. She Hit Sand-Which The Impact Of, Killed Her Instantly, & The Driver--He Just Steered His White Pick-Up Back Onto Hwy98 Without Batting An Eye...As If Nothing Had Happened At All. According To Witnesses & "Debris" That Flew Out Of The White Pick-Up...It Is Safe To Say The Driver Was Drunk &/Or Drinking...Due To The Fact That One Witness Said They Saw Him Drinking A Canned Beer When They Were Stopped Alongside The Pick-Up At The Stop-Light Just Before The Accident Happened. But Bc Of The Watercraft/Trailor The License Plate Was Obstructed From View & There Wasn't A Plate On The Trailor Either. The Okaloosa County Sheriffs Dept. Did Recover An Opened Can Of Beer That Still Had Some "Sweat Drops" On It, At The Scene--Along With Several Other Items That Flew From The Pick-Up When The Driver Lost Control & Jumped The Curb. If Anyone Knows Of Any Charges/&Statutes I Haven't Listed That Might Fit This Crime...Or The Statutes On The Ones I Did List...Please Let Me Know. I Want To Research As Much As I Can About Every Possible Outcome. Thank You For Reading My Post-I Know It's Long, & I Want To Apologize For That! God Bless!
  17. Is There Any Legal Avenue To Getting A Non-Custodial Parent(Who Has Been In Prison Since The Mother Was 8 Mo th Pregnant) To Sign Over His Parental Rights?
  18. ai have a friend who is worried about this. Her only child passed away. When she and her husband passes she wants to leave everything to her grand children. She is worried that her sons 3rd wife, who he was married to when he died, will try to claim rights to what they may leave behind. In truth it isn't much, but it is everything to them. Their son passes from complications from drug use, and his wife is in jail for who knows what. they were married for less than a year when he passed, and she didn't even show up to his funeral. But they are worried. So am wondering what are the rights of surviving in-laws.
  19. I recently purchased a vehicle in feb 2017. Purchase price was 6500.00 I put a down payment of 4500 day or signing. I had an agreement with the dealer to pay 4 installment payments of 500 each by 4/20/17 in which I did and car was paid in full balance. Upon waiting for title the dealer repo the vehicle saying that I had not paid it off and now is requesting me to pay off another 2600 cash by this Friday. How is this legal? First problem with this is I never received any paperwork the day of purchase dealer was to email documents to me and never did. Also I had the vehicle for several months and the registration or the title was never transferred. I thought a ky dealer only had 15 days to do so? Shouldnt I have copies of paperwork? I don't even have a buyers agreement or anything other than a written receipt for my 4500 cash down I paid. What can I do? I can't as a single mom loose all my money and my car and I only have a few days. Also I never received anything before repo. No letters or calls. šŸ˜£
  20. I was wrongfully terminated from my part-time job supposedly for theft without any proof nor a written explanation. I was getting water at a soda fountain and because I was distracted, I accidentally pushed a soft drink and a couple squirts fell in. I quickly corrected this, and poured water into the glass. I never drink soda at work, home nor restaurants as it contains way too much sugar and is unhealthy. Four and a half hours later, I was verbally, loudly and angrily confronted at my station in front of co-workers and customers, accused of theft and told to go home. When I called back, my manager told me I was being terminated for theft because the retailer demanded this. When I spoke with the retailer, they told me that they were notified of this situation, but nobody there saw the incident nor knows anything about it and it was strictly between me and my employer. I work for a sub-contractor company at a large retailer of which I am an executive member for many years. The co-worker I was talking to was the only one that could have seen this and I'm sure that he/she was the one that probably reported this. My manager at this place is very autocratic, micro-manager that dislikes anyone even tries to discuss anything with her. I'm always assigned the worst shifts, the most demanding assignments and told to do the most difficult drudging tasks. However I like job, enjoy being with customers and the flexible hours were convenient. I have been vocal at several group meetings and am sure this manager dislikes me. My co-workers are very upset regarding what has happened to me. They said in their meetings that they all should be fired in that case because everyone has made that mistake at one time. The location of water at the soda fountain makes it very easy for anyone to make that error. I'm positive that I was a target to be terminated, because my manger dislikes me. The co-worker that I believe reported was recently re-hired and begged to get the job back. I don't mind leaving this job, but I'm very angry and disgusted and sad about the method used to get me terminated. The stigma of theft without any proof nor a formal chance for me to defend myself is what bothers me the most. Do I have any re-course. Can she accuse of theft without any proof and without facing my accuser? can a company do this without any formal termination. Kentucky is an "at will" state. I have an unblemished record and have never in my life been even accused of anything? This has caused me stress and sleepless nights. It just seems so unfair and unjustified. I've written to both the retailer and HR of my company but have nor received any reply. Several of my co-workers have contacted me. They are angry as well but do not want to lose their jobs for sticking up for me.
  21. I have recently been charged with a DUI (1st offense) and am seeking advice in preparation for my upcoming court date...specifically in regard to whether I have any hope for a defense. Immediately after consuming two extremely strong margaritas I was stopped at a roadblock & was ultimately arrested. My BAC was just under .11 according to the breathalyzer; upon reaching the jail I consented to a blood test; however after numerous attempts they were unable to collect a sample. Incidentally an acquaintance of mine was also arrested driving a separate vehicle and no blood could be taken from him either. I plead not guilty at my arraignment; while there I observed that the charges against the acquaintance, who'd hired a lawyer, were dismissed due to no blood sample being taken. Apparently the officers had not requested he take a breathalyzer. This may be of no significance, but I find it interesting. I am wondering whether I have any hope at all of this ending without a DUI conviction...Knowing this would determine if I hire a lawyer vs simply pleading guilty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I am 80 years old, still in good health, How should I do a will that will insure, should I have to go into a nursing home in a few years my home will go to my daughters and not the nursing home? I live in Kentucky.
  23. My (step)children that ive had the pleasure of raising for the last three years are now refusing to go to their birth mothers house. Shes threatening to show up at the house with a sherrif if we dont take them kicking and screaming. I cant do that to these kids. Shes already put them through so much. Broken promises of birthday parties. No phone calls. No visits except when its convenient for her. Shes a thousand dollars behind on her child support. Which is detestable because she is only ordered to pay $200 for both children combined a month. and shes only had to pay for 6 months. meaning weve only received one payment. The childrens therapists have written letters to the judge saying that visitations are a horrible idea because the mother isnt mentally stable and shes damaging the childrens emotional growth. She constantly talks about suicide and glorifies it like its an amazing way to solve problems. She brags about her drug addiction. When she still had custody of the children, she had her dauhjter who was 9 at the time, running drugs for her, and she was stealing her sons adhd ,medication and selling it. Not to mention, she tried to kill the boy when he was an infant by shaking him. and the boy suffers from a learning disability and autism due to the drugs she took during pregnancy. She has also remarried a woman and it goes against everything we believe religiously and we want to raise our kids with better values. Someone please help me. What can we do?
  24. My wife and I let her brother , a convicted felon and a sex offender put a travel trailer on a acre of our land that had electric and water. He has never paid a penny to us for anything. Never mowed the yard or picked up branches, so I could mow. Thrown his cigarette butts under one our pin oak trees so deep you can't see the ground. Throws his eating utensils down on the ground instead of washing them. Uses the restroom by one of our bushes and throws his toilet paper down right beside it. Have told him time after time to stop. Have had enough and told him to remove the trailer. Now, he says the laws says he has 60 days before he has to remove it. I'm on a short fuse and fed up with his actions. He been getting drunk and bringing other felons in to the property. One of the felons is now in jail for caring a gun. What actions do I need to take, besides the most serious one. I'm a Vietnam Veteran with PTSD and I have a short fuse.
  25. If a full custody parent doesn't tell the courts or the other parent that there was a fight between a step parent and child and the police had informed the full custody parent the child is not allowed to go back to her and live under the same roof as the step father. Then asks if there is another parent or person who can take the child, she says the great grandparent is this breaking any law? She's claiming child support for 2 kids but only has 1
