  1. If I were you I wouldn't shop there.
  2. You would think that would be the case. But the claim can be overcome by a claim of condonation. That is, the husband knew the affair was going on and took no action. There is also recrimination - the husband was doing the same thing. In Virginia at least the Supreme Court has held that adultery after s, a significant period of separation is not a ground for a fault based divorce. More often than not the divorce court will, sometimes sua sponte, convert the adultery based divorce to a no fault divorce when the statutory perod has passed.
  3. In South Carolina, adultery can be a bar to spousal support. However, it is usually necessary to prove adultery occurred by actual evidence that sexual relationships occurred at specific times and places. Therefore, divorces on the basis of adultery are seldom successful.
  4. You reported the incident to the police. They arrested her. If the case goes to trial you will probably receive a subpoena ordering you to appear and testify. If you recant you can be arrested for filing a false report to the police. If you do not appear for the hearing you can be arrested for contempt of the subpoena, which is a court order. Neither the police nor the judges are happy about lovers using their powers because of angry outbreaks. Yes you should tell the girl's boyfriend about the photo.
  5. Yes, you can report it to the police. Then it is up to the police to decide how to proceed.
  6. What is an "electrodiagnostic baseline system" and why did the company decide such an exam was necessary? The only type of test that comes to mind is a lie detector test. How is the alleged examination a "financial based examination"? Is the company being paid for the employee's participation?
  7. Actionable discriminaion has to be based on a protected class or status, such as race, religion, sex, national origin, etc. A health care provider is allowed to decline specific treatment to a class of patients, such as new patients. Indeed, that is the new norm. You may be aware that NSAIDS, like ibuprofen, have been demonstrated to provide equal or greater pain relief compared to opioids.
  8. The basic concept is that a listing of real property for sale is a solicitation of offers. Because of the statute of frauds (google it) a contract for the sale or purchase of real property is only valid if it is witnessed by a writing containing the signature of the party charged with complying with the contract. (I know there are exceptions so please don't flame me) Sales of other types property are regulated by other, usually more lenient and permissive rules, like the Uniform Commercial Code. What it boils down to is that real estate is considered, and has been considered, a special form of property for the thousands of years of legal thought. I might point out that a legitimate offer at the listed price may result in the seller owing the real estate agent his or her commission if the offer is rejected.
  9. Sorry, I didn't notice the "born in 1969" part of the question.
  10. Thank you for your answer to my 'Citizenship  Status' question. My parents never filed a CRBA when I was a child. I am 49 now. What is my best course of action in order to become a US citizen?


    Thanks again.

  11. You had American citizenship when you were born because your father was an American citizen. However, your parents must file a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document your citizenship. See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/while-abroad/birth-abroad.html for further details. You are also entitled to American citizenship if you are under 18 years and were adopted by and live with an American citizen. See https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/Intercountry-Adoption/Adoption-Process/how-to-adopt/us-citizenship-for-your-child.html
  12. The landlord has the obligation to maintain the property in habitable condition. ORE. 90.320. But the remedy for not maintaining the premises in habitable condition is termination of the lease. ORE 90.360. It is not clear that a damaged garage would constitute an issue if habitability. It is only minor defects that allow the tenant to repair and withhold, minor being repairs costing less the $300. ORE 90.368. If the tenant decides to repair and withhold, however, the tenant must abide by an extensive list of notice requirements. 90.368.
  13. In your other post you said your home also has holes in the roof, large holes in the floor, and leaky windows and doors. Now, you also have a collapsed garage roof. It sounds like it is time to move on. In the other post you did not mention that you had lived in the place ten years. Did all this just start recently?
  14. why would you move into a place like that? If you report the problems to code inforcement, it is possible they will condemn the place and you will be out in the street. Your first step is to give the landlord written notice of the need for repair. Keep a copy of the written notice. If the repairs are not made you can either move out or repair and deduct the cost of the repair from the rent. However, in Oregon you may not deduct more than $300 for the repair. It doesn't sound as if you have less than $300 in repair costs ahead of you. See if there is a landlord-tenant office in your locality for further assistance.
