  1. Brand new to the forum and hoping someone could give me useful advice. My wife retired from J. C. Penney. They may be going downhill right now, but they used to be one of the most consumer friendly company around. They always told their employees, "The customer is always right". It is not worth losing a customer just because you don't agree with their problems. To the problem. We gave a dry cleaning business a $40 deposit on some jackets that had to be sent out of state for repair. Several weeks later we were told the out of state cleaner could not clean them without doing possible damage. Gene's cleaners called us and told us to come by and get a deposit return. I did so and they presented a check. I kindly told them that I gave them $4o cash and would like them to give me cash instead of a check. They told me it was Gene's policy to give deposit returns via check. They would not give me my deposit back any other way than check. Fast forward to a week later and my check from Gene's cleaners is a blank piece of paper after I remove it from the washer.. Oh well...I contact Gene's Cleaners and ask them if I could come by and get a new check. Long story, short...the answer is NO. I am told they fulfilled their obligation when they gave me the check. It was not their fault that I destroyed the check. A very long and heated discussion ensued. We live 1/2 mile from these cleaners. We have been customers for over 20 years. We aren't going to starve if I never see that $40 again. It is just simply the principle of the issue. Does a business owner have the right of refusal to give us another check? Are their consumer protection laws that apply to this? Any suggestions or legal precedents that might apply to this scenario would be appreciated.
  2. I own a piece of property that i have to drive down a private road to get to my driveway. a neighbor which owns land of most or all of the private drive does not want a road grader from our county to fix the road when it gets washed out. A far as i know there are no agreements who is responsible for the maintenance of the the private rd. So my question is what responsibilities do the land owner of the easement have, and what rights do i have regarding maintenance of the easement.
  3. I share joint custody with my ex. I am the primary custodial parent. Our daughter is 11 and wants to go to court and tell the judge that she no longer wants to go to her dads. She has already told her father that she doesn't want to go visit anymore but he said it's not her choice. Is it possible for a child to choose? If so, are there age restrictions?
  4. Contracted for two building roof job , by Don then his partner shows up tear off my roof and states that he wants more money and he's redoing the contract. What would be a defense, when a contractor plays with words and use deception information on a contract that you signed in good faith to themeaning your given as truth, until they state that that word means this or that, but not spelled out in the contract. I'm being sued. I signed a contract under Don for the roof jobs on the 13th of Jan. On Jan 17 his partner shows up with hardly any material and tore off my roof. After he tore off my roof he stated that he wanted more money and that he was doing away with his partners contract. He stated that he was a good guy and would hate to file a lien on me, because he touched my property. The job was a two day job per the original contract. On Jan this contractor stated that he would be sending me out another contract. I told him that I did not want to sign another contract in the middle of the Job. He said he was going to send me one and left. He would not work under his partners contract both with same company. He returned on Jan 19, 2017 and was paid $4500 dollars and did not complete any work on the buildings. I signed the other contract not knowing he had removed the material. On the 20th of Jan he did not comeback, until Jan 26, 2017. The contract read that he would not be paid until the job was completed. It also read that he would supply all the material, and that any changes had to come from client. He put a carport over build 2 20X24, cut into the roof of it and left it open and he removed the building structure beams trying to fit a carport roof on it. The building is collapsing, Water is coming in the building. What defenses do I have, in my case?
  5. My sons ages 6 and 8 went to spend the weekend with their dad. My ex called me and said the boys wanted to cone home they had only been gone about 18 hrs. Well of course I told him then bring them home, I had to leave for work and I didn't get home until after they had went to sleep that night. My nieces were staying the night and they well had a big slumber party pretty much.That next morning my nieces told my mom the boys had told them something that had happened at their dads and I need to talk to them so I asked them what was going on. My 6 year old ran off crying and locked himself in his bedroom closet, after a few minutes of my 8 year old hiding behind the hall wall I was becoming pretty concerned but was able to convince him to tell me what had happened. His dad had left them with their step mom while he had went to a friends while he was gone she had called them to the living room and started off by calling them "stupid little f word b word" then she told them that she hated them and wish they were dead. That's not the worse part to told them that one day if they kept coming back that she would stomp their heads into the floor and squish them until their guts came out and they would be exactly how she wants them dead. I was livid I called the police but without talking to my boys or anything they said they can't do anything. What can I do, this is disgusting and terrifying. Who says this to anyone much less small children. Can she not be charged for threatening them. Idk what to do but I do know something has to be done.
  6. My work posted a job opening for project coordinator job that would have some account manager duties. I had been cross trained in the account manager duties already and the project coordinator would be a step below account manager. I applied for the job and had a four-person panel that included or program manager or operations manager the small business manager and and account manager. The second applicant was a a family member of our ops manager. She that did not have the experience requested beyond a bachelor's degree but not in the field requested and the job posting. I do not have a degree but I have the work experience required. I had a meeting with my program manager and she told me the job had gone to the other applicant. Is it illegal or can I sue my work for nepotism when the operation manager is the step-sister to the applicant ? she participated in the hiring process for both of us. However it was only the ops manager and the small business manager that interviewed her stepsister. I have reached out to my program manager with questions but have not gotten a response. What should i do?
  7. I got pregnant by a man I barely knew in 2012, he had his doubts through the whole pregnancy so I offered him many times to do a DNA test before and after my son was born. He said he didn't want one because no matter what he's going to be his son. My son has his last name but he didn't sign the birth certificate because he is illegal and didn't have an ID. We were together up until my son was 2 and we split while I was pregnant with our daughter. He payed gave me money for both kids for the past 2 years and I gave him visitations without going through the court. He's married now and a few months ago, him and his wife went behind my back and did DNA test on both of my children when they were with them. They say that my son is not his but my daughter is and now he wants to cut off all ties with my son and only pay child support and see my daughter. My son is 4 now and he's always known him as his dad, so I don't think it's fair for him to have to see his sister going to his dads but he can't go so I told my ex that if he wants my son out of his life then he isn't going to be seeing our daughter either. Now he wants to take me to court, and I'm scared that the judge will allow him to only see my daughter. Any advice on what I should do would be appreciated.. thanks.
  8. I was left the house I grew up in when my dad died. I went through all the probate. The house has my name on it. But it also has my mothers name on it. She died 4 years before my dad. This should have been something he took care of after she died. He did file her death certificate at the county clerks office. Because her death happened before his, I am not sure how to remove her name. At this point she has been gone since 1999. I have recently gotten married and we I am looking to put him on the property with me.
  9. I was at our fire station in the evening after a planning commission meeting. I tripped over one of the concrete parking blocks. I didn't see it. The outside light was out and they fixed it the next day after I told them what happened. I hurt my shoulder and elbow by falling directly on my shoulder on the concrete block. My neck hurt from jarring it back. I had a bump the size of a golf ball that could be seen poking out of my shirt. I went to the emergency room, my shoulder wasn't broken. They told me I probably got whiplash from jerking my neck. The shoulder pain comes and goes but seems to be getting worse. I am still in pain with my shoulder and neck. Is it too late to sue the fire department. If the light had not been broken, I would have seen the concrete block and not fallen. They are aware of the incident because I went back the next day and showed them my injury and that's when they discovered the light was not working.

  13. My grandfather owned a home **** ***** Rd. Oklahoma City, OK ******. He passed away in 2003 or 2004. My mother and I (her only child) had lived with him since 1992. He left the house to my mother and me in his will. After him passing, it was too hard for her to reside there. She in return, gave the house to me in 2005. My Uncle R. H. and his spouse K.H. took advantage of me. I was unknowledgeable of what was going on. I was 19 and pregnant and the house did need work. My uncle and his wife said that they would give me $700.00 to move into an apartment so the baby and I had a place to stay while they fixed up the house for me. In return, I could come back. They wrote a check to me. At the bottom it said payment for house. I was unaware until my bank statement came in the mail a month later that the check even said that. I tried to contact my uncle and aunt and they wouldn't talk to me. My uncle then took all his brothers and sisters (my aunts and uncles) to probate court and legally took over the house. My uncle is now deceased and his widow K.H. lives there in my childhood home. I am now 30 years old and would like to get the home back especially since my Uncle is deceased and his wife(widow) is there. Please help.
  14. My friend had given me permission to go to his apartment to check on it for him while he was in jail. I had his keys. On my way up to his apt the on-site property manager stopped me, ask who I was going to see. I told her and she said I can't allow you to go up there. She said that he was in jail. I tried again a week later. Was stopped again. I told her I had his keys and his permission. She said I had to have his written, notorized permission before she would let me in. I got that from him. When I got back to the apt I went ahead and went up to his apt. His keys would not work. I went to find the property manager. She took the letter from me, did not ID me. She escorted me up to his apt and told me Rent-a-Center had come and got their sofa he had been renting from them. She allowed them into the apt without notifying my friend. I noticed the door jam had been tampered with. There were no indication of anything damaged, broke or missing. The landlord left no notice on the door about entering the apt. He was on a month to month lease. This happened like the 25 Aug 16. She told me his apt needed to be completely cleaned out by 02 Sept 16 when his lease expired. Nothing in writing. She allowed me access a couple of days later when I came back to remove his belongings giving me the key to let myself in. He feels that they illegally locked him or his representative out of is apt. His rent was paid. They we're supposed to come in to replace or repair his A/C unit prior to him going to jail. The unit was not in the window when I went into the apt. What recourse can he take? Does he have a Illegal lock out case?
  15. My dad passed on May 25, 2016 in OK and his 4th wife didn't bother to tell his 3 adult children of his passing or funeral arrangements. I want to find out if he left a will, how can I do this? Also, I was a minor when I became disabled and draw SS from my dad, am I entitled to any of his pension or estate if no will was left? He never did a thing for his children, being forced to pay child support by Indiana courts, and I don't feel his 4th wife should get everything. The children he helped create should get a part. Also, would I have to retain a lawyer in ok?
  16. I was contracted as a paid intern for a company back in Aug 2015 I worked Aug, Sept, Oct, and Nov 2015. Agreement signed by both parties promised $100/week. I sent an e-mail in December 2015, requesting the status of my payment, to no response. I e-mailed again in January and in early February he responded stating that I would be paid "Sometime soon." In early March, I e-mailed again asking for updates, waited 14 days without receiving any word. I e-mailed him again, and received the same response that I would be paid "Sometime soon." In May I e-mailed him asking for an update and did not receive any word for 14 days, at which point I e-mailed him again. He responded stating that he had already told me I would receive compensation "sometime soon." May 18, 2016 I formally told him that I would like my amount to be paid in full by June 20th, or I would have to escalate the matter. He replied asking is a payment plan was an available option, I said no. He responded June 11, 2016 stating that he would like to do a payment plan. At this point, I am prepared to take him to small claims. I would like to know exactly what laws he has broken by refusing to pay me in over 8 months since the end of my contract. As I am a resident of Michigan, and both he and the business are in Oklahoma, I am unsure of what law he may be breaking, and am having trouble finding them. Thank you in advanced. I am much appreciative of you reviewing this situation.
  17. I will begin this post with the background of the situation. My wife, step-daughter and I were living in a tent on a 5 acre plot we were purchasing. The winter of 2014-2015 was approaching and it was getting very cold. Out of concern for our safety of getting through the winter, a friend we had met offered us the use of his trailer over winter. He charged us $500 rent and, as we had no way of bringing it onto the property, he moved it there with his pickup truck and set it up. He left his card with us in case we needed to contact him for anything. This person, I will refer to as D. Before he left, he gave us a little bit of food he had left over including deer sausage which we grilled. He informed us he'll come back after winter to pick up the trailer. That winter was a harsh one with very low temperatures, lots of ice and snow and heavy winds. The winds were so heavy it had partially destroyed some of the wind breaks and weather protection barriers that were built around the site to protect all of our belongings. We did not see D again until after winter when the police showed up at our door along with D. My family and I were being accused of taking the trailer from D without his permission. I explained to the officer that D brought the trailer on to our property and we paid him $500. I even informed the officer that D had given us his card in case we needed to contact him and gave the officer the card D had given us. After all of this, the officer told us that the best way to settle this matter is move our belonging out of the trailer and D will go ahead and pick it up. We were given three days to move all of our stuff and D will come and get his trailer and this dispute would be done and over with. Over the three days, we moved all of our stuff out and D came and picked up his trailer and left with it. We were instructed by the officer that this matter was settled and done with and it'll be best to just break off our friendship with D. And so, this dispute between D and us was settled, it was put behind us, or so we thought. And now, several days ago, my wife, step-daughter and I were arrested and charged with Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property - 21 O.S. §1713, a - which was filed on February 26, 2016. Every one of us are shocked and don't understand what is going on. We were told that since this all boiled down to one persons word against another's and that D came and picked up his trailer the matter was settled and forgotten. It's all so confusing as when D let us use the trailer and when he came to get it, it was given back with no problem. How can they accuse us and charge us with a crime when none was even committed and the matter was settled already between us and D? What are we supposed to do about these false charges against us? Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
  18. I bought a house 21 years ago and quickly found out why it sold so cheap, it was because of the bad neighbor next door. She is now in her mid 60s but is a total bully, she is so loud and obnoxious you can hear her talk several yards away. I have had so much trouble I don't know where to begin. Parking her car on my yard, throwing trash in my yard, I put up a 8 ft fence 20 years ago and she immediately dug on her side and busted up the concrete that the posts were sitting in. She is mentally ill and is out of control. Right now she threw an old end table in my yard and refused to throw it away, I sent it back on her driveway, she just throws it back in my yard. Now I know better than calling the police as they have been out to visit so many times... she calls and I call as well... the police do nothing they just say its is a civil matter between neighbors that don't get along... she thinks that I am doing something to kill the grass in her yard so she keeps throwing grass killer on my yard and on my shrubs. I cant walk outside and even mow my lawn without her coming outside and calling me a fag or saying she has me on video tape doing something to her property. I would move if I had the money to . I put up video cameras but that was in Jan 2007 so the system is old and needs replacing I did it because she thought that I broke out the back window of her car and at night she threw oil based paint on the front of my house.. that was what caused me to put up the cameras...which cost over 3,000 I had lots of video of her drunk but for the most part the cameras kept her in line...now I haven't been living at the property for the last 2 years, I have developed mental health depression after being diagnosed with cancer and stay at my moms house and go over to my house to get the mail and do yard work. I know that the only way this situation I ever going to be resolved is if I sell the house but I am afraid she will come in and look at the inside of my house just to be nosey ...then she will see that I only have an alarm sign in my yard and no real alarm, So I feel like the only way I can sell it to sell it dirt cheap to a house flipper. The neighbor is fixated on me and tells every one she runs into about her bad neighbor, if there is a new renter in the neighborhood she immediately goes to them and tells them about me, I am a very quiet person and don't have people over at my house. Right now she has a plastic tarp strung across her driveway attached to her house and to my fence, because she doesn't want it to rain on her car...she has a garage that she used to put her car in... but it seems she is doing anything to bother me.. I have tried to file a restraining order against her when the paint was thrown on my house that didn't work, she has tried to take me to small claims court and they dropped the case when I got my home insurance involved....I forgot to add that last summer two of the video cameras were stolen off the front of my house... one that pointed at her front yard.. I really have gotten to my wits end on trying to deal with this person. This neighbor was in a auto accident in San Francisco in about 1990 and collected $450K from a doctor that kept her from being paralyzed and she has never had any kind of job other than cleaning houses... she doesn't work now and so she seems to have all her time focused on me... she always has people over at her house, she would move in people all the time ....usually her nieces or other young people so I am constantly out numbered as she had all these people turned against me. She has adopted a boy and the boys mother lived ovet there for years as well she has been arrested for thieft and burglary, and heroin possession and for assault with a deadly weapon.. and she harasses me as well.... I know that I am rambling but there is 21 years of bad stuff that has happended.... just wondering if anyone knows how to handle a neighbor like this
  19. I purchased a rural 5 acre property and built a home two years ago (April 2014). We did sign to an HOA that required dues to up keep neighborhood roads but we live on a main mile line with no access to any of the interior homes and roads. In fact we can only see the tip of the roofs of 3-4 of the interior homes from our house. If you drove by you would assume our 5 acres did not belong to the neighborhood of 2 1/2 acre tract behind us. There is no park, pool, gate, lighting, or entrance for up keep. Here are the other hard facts The HOA formed in 2005 We moved in April 2013 The HOA paperwork presented to us at closing specifically stated the dues were specifically for road maintenance only. We purchased the home with the understanding of the HOA to be a defunct organization from many of the neighbors. There have been no meetings since before 2013... prior to this I can not determine but hear they were not yearly and very sporatic. Our first notification of who the HOA president even was happened about 3 weeks ago in a letter stating I, along with others, owed two years back dues or property liens will be filed. 5-6 other property owners out of 27 do not live in the internal addition as well. many new owners in the interior of the addition received the same notice. Dues have not been paid by the most residence and the dues have not been sought after since at least 2013... until now that is. No road maintenance has occurred since 2013 and none before 2013 from my understanding. The HOA has NO RECORDS AT ALL dating before 2013 as to who has paid in and who has not. Questions... What is the probability of being released from HOA dues as we have no benefit from them? With the HOA being defunct in its operations since before at least 2013 would that be a breech of contract and what legal action would I have to terminate it? What is the best course of action to take to request being released? What is the ramifications of a property lien when we are pretty much set on retiring here long after the HOA runs its course?

  22. Claim: I purchased a brand new home through well-known home builder company. The house was complete in June and I closed Mid-June. I have lived by myself since closing and I never had the need to go to my two guest bedrooms. It wasn’t until Thanksgiving until I had family stay in both bedrooms. After the family left my mother said there was a damp spot in one of the guest bedroom’s closet. I thought one of the children over the weekend spilled juice or water. I put a towel over it and went on with my business. About a week goes by until I go back into the room to get the towel and the damp spot was still there. That is when I called my home builder. They sent out their people to test if there were any plumbing leaks and there were no plumbing issues. Then they sent a water/moisture expert. He pulled back my carpet and placed dehydrators in that room and returned and picked the dehydrator machines up after a couple days. Now another week goes by and I still received no calls from my home builder or the water/moisture expert. I call my home builder to complain on why my problem has not been resolved and if/when somebody is going to replace the carpet. My home builder told me they wouldn’t be able to send somebody until the first week of January. And I was tired and stressed out from the problem and I agreed to wait until the first week of January. It wasn’t until Christmas when we had another rain storm and water leak became worse. Initially, the water damage was isolated to only one room. Now the water damage has moved to all three bedrooms, including my master bedroom where I sleep. I closed on this house back in June, so this problem has been here since the first day but I would have never noticed it until I needed to go to my guest bedrooms, which I did after Thanksgiving and that is when I initially discovered the issue and called my home builder. The whole reason why I bought a brand new home was to avoid any of these issues, especially water issues. The unnecessary stress this has caused me, the potential health issues, I’ve had to leave work multiple times just to be at my house for them to run tests and troubleshoot and multiple other frustrations. At first I was happy to deal with my home builder to resolve this issue and continue on with my life and live in this house after they fix the problem. Now, I completely want out of this mortgage. I believe my home builder has broken their contract. I am hoping there is some way I can get out from this mortgage. Please let me know if I have a claim. Thank you.

  25. I have searched and read so many statutes & cannot find (or understand) what I feel is an easy question. I appreciate any advice given. Here is my issue: I was arrested in Oklahoma & charged w possession of CDs (meth). It was a small amount & a really stupid mistake on my part for sure. The only thing on my record is a poss of paraphernalia (dr3) in 10/2001. In 05/2000 I received a deferred sentence for poss of CDs (meth) a felony & poss of CDs (Valium) a misdemeanor. Both charges were expunged & I can't even pull them up on Oscn.net. I found a statute stating that a deferred sentence cannot be given if the person has had one in the last 10 years. Mine was more than 10 years ago & has been expunged. The DA says that I cannot receive 2 deferred sentences in my life time for the same thing. I could have one if my new charge was robbery or something besides a drug charge. I cannot find anything that backs up his statement & he didn't give a reference point. I just really need to know if that is correct or not. I am set for trial & am a little nervous & am not totally confident in my lawyers abilities. I have a full time job, have been going to NA classes the last few months, had an assessment done stating I was a low risk to repeat, and have taken (and passed) a couple drug tests since arrest. Thank you again for any help you can give me.
