  1. It's entirely possible that she didn't understand what was happening. Unless you speak her language fluently you may never know exactly what happened so there's no sense kicking a dead horse.


    Cancel the card if you like.


    The credit score will recover quickly.



  2. It's usually women that want to recant and forgive their abusers. They often wind up dead.


    Stop being stupid. This is a violent woman that has no business being in your life. Don't interfere with the prosecution. Keep your mouth shut until you go to testify and then tell what happened.


    Meantime, don't have anything to do with her.

    I think it's just that real estate has become what used car dealers used to be.


    You mean what used car dealers still are.


    I got a chuckle at your last post. Not laughing at you. More of an ironic chuckle as I am closing on a house purchase this week after several months of looking and running into the same stuff that you've run into. The gimmicks, the games, the lying ads, photos that make everything look bigger, bidding wars. Not restricted to California. I'm in Arizona and that stuff happens here, too.


    It's unfortunate that it's a seller's market and the more desirable homes get multiple offers within the first few days on the market and often get bid above listing price.


    I'm an old guy who has had many years experience buying and selling a few houses along the way so I've gotten used to it all. I can tell you stories. You just have to keep plugging away at it until you find the house you want at the price you want and you just have to be willing to walk away when the BS starts. I walked away from plenty this year until I found the one that worked out for me.


    Just keep at it and one will work out for you, too. But never trust anything a realtor or a seller tells you without verifying it. Buyers' agents are no better than sellers' agents. They are also whores to the commission.


    After I move in, I'll put my old house up for sale and I'm sure I'll have a new round of BS from buyer's agents and low-balling flippers.

    My husband was the same way. In fact, his hearing impairment sounds similar to yours, Tax. However, while they certainly didn't do the same job the prescription ones do (he's still exclaiming over things he's never heard before, like keys tapping on the keyboard) the OTC ones were still sufficient to improve the overall experience.



    When I first got my hearing aids I was amazed at the sound of my feet on gravel, the sound of the wind, and peeing sounded like Niagara Falls. :D

    In lower frequencies there is little loss, but it's more severe for higher frequencies and it varies from one frequency to another.


    Me, too.


    If you are interested in a technical explanation check out the attached files. I downloaded the article several years ago when I started wearing hearing aids. Very enlightening.


    I bet your audiogram looks like the second one on the first page, just like mine, or close to it.

    But she keeps saying she'd rather die than be seen using any of those "old people" devices (or move into an assisted living apartment in the same community where she already lives) because in her mind those things would  "prove" that she is "crippled" and (according to her) "useless."  I obviously do not agree with that point of view and have argued about it a lot with her, which has done no good for either of us.


    Buy her a book:


    Stephen Hawking: A Biography




    Might inspire her.

      On the other hand she doesn't need to persuade every Dr. in California of her point of view.  Only 2 of them.


    That's not the way it works. There has to be medical evidence of a terminal disease. Doctors have to dot a lot of i's and cross a lot of t's. If they don't get it right they could lose there immunity and end up unlicensed and in jail. That should be scary enough to keep a doctor from being manipulated by his patient no matter how good the patient is at it.

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this but please forgive me if it is not.


    It's as good a place as any and, as you know, we all read all the forums anyway.


    You should thoroughly and carefully read the statute. The provisions may allay your concerns.




    There are some serious checks and balances in the statute, not the least of which is the definition of "terminal disease."





     “Terminal disease” means an incurable and irreversible disease that has been medically confirmed and will, within reasonable medical judgment, result in death within six months.




    There is also some serious (even draconian) paperwork involved for both patient and doctor. Given those requirements I don't see your mother succeeding in charming any doctor into going through that process to the point of actually providing the drug.


    On to your questions. This answers both.


    If she becomes mentally incompetent (dementia, alzheimer's, etc) that's a whole nother issue. But if she actually does some day become terminally ill and is still mentally competent, you won't be able to prevent it. Nor will you be able to sue any doctor that properly provides the drug.


    Unfortunately, even without being able to get the drug if she is seriously determined to commit suicide, there are a lot of ways she can do it.


    However, I tend to treat

    The same way I would treat


    "I have made a decision to quit smoking on my own terms within the next few months."


    With a considerable amount of skepticism.



  9. This is probably the best answer that you will get from strangers on the internet.

    For the most part, statutes don't get into the details of who may be a confidential informant (CI), how CI's are selected, etc. Those decisions are made by the police and prosecutor.


    Tax_Counsel is an attorney.


    If your question arises because of something happening to you personally, I suggest you consult an Arkansas attorney.



  10. I think you may have misunderstood something.


    The estate pays its debts to the extent that the estate has sufficient "assets" to pay them., not just money.


    When the money runs out the executor must sell any remaining non-money assets to cover the remaining debts.


    So if there is a house, a car, personal property, jewelry, antiques, etc, you must sell those items to pay the credit card debt.


    You, as the executor can be held responsible for remaining debts if you fail to perform your fiduciary duties by selling everything and paying all the debts to the extent that the sale enables you.


    Once the "value" of the estate (not just the money) is down to zero and there is nothing left, that's when you give the bad news to creditors that they are out of luck.


    Have a chat with your lawyer about all that and see if I'm right.

    If I lived with a married man for 18 years and he has passed do I  have a legal right to anything.



    Other than anything you owned as your separate property, no, you have no right to anything, unless he left you something in his will.

    She has been violent with me


    Call the police and have her arrested.


    Take out a restraining order and the police will remove her from your home.


    If you and your husband don't play hard ball, the consequences are on you.

    That's where I started almost two weeks ago.


    You should have said that in your post and I wouldn't have had to waste my time bringing it up.

    I would assume the utility company has an easement over the area where the hole was dug.  If that is the case, they have the right to keep the hole open until they have finished whatever they were doing.  


    The dirt from the hole is outside the easement and is preventing OP from using his own property.


    What can he do about that?


    Maybe get a shovel and move the dirt back into the hole? ;)
