    Warrant issued for ex-boyfriend

    If he lived in your house and they have a warrant you have to let them in. If you have anything in your house you wouldn't want a police officer to see, you better get rid of it now.
  2. If you sued in the United States you might be able to get some compensation for your lost wages (however, the compensation would be at employment pay rates that prevail in your country). However, bringing suit in the United States is a very expensive proposition. You would have to appear in court and probably in the US for depositions. You would certainly need to be represented by an attorney and would not, under US rules, be entitled to recover your attorney's fee. To bring such a suit you would undoubtedly be asked to pay tens of thousands of dollars in advance to the attorney.

    Lunch laws

    No. That is probably legal.

    verbal and contract

    Contracts for purchase of real estate must usually be in writing. In your case, full performance on your husband's part may overcome that. But, it appears there may not be specific enough terms to force sale of the land unless he can prove exactly which acres he bought. The best he may be able to do is get a judgment for the money he paid.

    heirs left out

    The longest statute of limitation in Florida (excluding clims for real estate) is five years. After nine years you have no enforceable claim. Sorry but all you can do is get on with your life.

    "applicable laws"

    Since I have never seen the CCR's I would not be inclined to make such a general statement. "All general statements are false, including this one."

    "applicable laws"

    I have bolded different parts of their response. It sounds to me as if you are interpreting the second sentence as if it said, "Building lot[s} may be subdivided if they comply with all applicable laws." and that is not what it says. Apparently the Board is not going to send a nice letter approving of your proposed subdivision. It seems to me they have a strong argument that no subdivision is permitted.

    "applicable laws"

    You got it right. However, the County Zoning Ordinance and Building Code Ordinance are also laws since they were authorized by a statute creating the County or City.

    County stealing my land

    Your taxable acreage should be the acreage described in your deed. Are you saying someone drew your property lines on an aerial phot and measured the acreage from the photo? Did they then adjust the acreage upon which you were assessed on the tax rolls? As a practical matter, how could they have possibly located the corner marker on an aerial photo. In any event, the solution to your problem lies in an accurate survey of your property.

    County stealing my land

    You need a survey. Get back to us when it is done.
  11. I only read thelast two paragraphs. So, I'm not sure what your question is. Could you edit your narrative a little.

    Dealing with a Large Check

    I would be wary of not notifying the creditor about the receipt of the check. Texas requires the administrator of an estate to give notice by mail to any creditor who has a secured debt. A good argument can be made that the rransporf company has a secured interest in the proceeds of the check in the nature of a constructive trust. The opinion of an attorney should be sought before acting on the estate.

    Yes and yes.

    Deed in wife's name

    The tax assessors listing is irrelevant. Whether or not your husband inherits the property depends on whether it is left to him by will or he inherits it if you have no will. The latter depends on the state where you live and whether you have children. The state where you live may be critical and you have not identified it.
