  1. First, you have not identified the state where this occurred so no one can tell you if there is a state law about when a vehicle can be towed. Second, if I understand your story, you left the truck on the highway unattended for four hours. I suspect there is no law anywhere that allows a person to leave an unattended vehicle on the highway for any significant period of time. The state is not required to have shoulders on rural roads. Then your old lady should pay the towing fee. I am quite sure they will want to see your registration to prove the vehicle is yours. If the registration points to you as a driver with a suspended license, I suspect that will be a problem. Just a suggestion: join the American Automobile Association and avoid these problems.
  2. Your son has no rights unless and until (1) his paternity of the child is established, and (2) if the situation is as you described, a court orders visitation. Your paying the attorney's fee does not entitle you to any information unless your son agrees and instructs the attorney to discuss the case with you.
  3. There is no way of answering your question without reading the CCR's. Presumably your lawyer has done so. His opinion is worth a lot more than the opinion of a bunch of strangers who know nothing about the CCR's and the conditions in the neighborhood.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. No. That is probably legal.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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."
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. You need a survey. Get back to us when it is done.
  14. I only read thelast two paragraphs. So, I'm not sure what your question is. Could you edit your narrative a little.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Why ... do you believe ... your son has ... "legal access or rights of residence" ... to your house??? He .. has the same right ... of access ... as someone ... to whom you rent a room... As with anyone else ... you evict him ...and serve him with a... notice that future ... entries to your property .... will be prosecuted ... as trespasssing...
  18. It sounds as if there is a designated place for parking bikes. Is there something in your lease dealing with parking of bikes and cars?
  19. and are uniquely delegated to the judgment of the trial court judge. Generally, only cases decided by appellate courts are reported and of any precedential value. Valuation issues are generally issues that are not reviewed by an appellate court since they are factual matters delegated to the trial courts. So, it would be extraordinary to find a case dealing with such an esoteric issue as you have posed.
  20. OK. Here's the original answer. If your son is an adult and not impaired, he is legally no different from anyone else you choose to allow to live in your house, There is no law that grants an un-empaired adult offspring any rights to live anywhere that are not granted to a stranger on the streets. There are no laws that require any different procedures for evicting an adult son who is not impaired. There are not laws that define the relationship between an adult unempaired child and a parent as different between a stranger and the parents when it comes to landlord tenant rights. The same procedures and rules that you might use to protect yourself from your next door neighbor are the same rules and procedures that would apply to protection from your adult son. Protective orders and trespass notice are the methods most used. What is not clear about that? And, yes, putting three periods (elipses) randomly thoughout your text is annoying.
  21. It is doubtful that anyone here regularly does Worker's Compensation Claims in Georgia. Your doctor, or more likely his staff, would probably be more familiar with the claims process in Georgia.
  22. The landlord-tenant laws do not distinguish between strangers and relatives. So, a child who returns is a tenant. Once he has been evicted you can either petition the local court for a protective order or you can simply serve him with a notice that returning to your home would be criminal trespass. Notify the local police that you have delivered a written trespass notice to your son and they should enforce it.
  23. The legislature and at least one prosecutor apparently believe it is. Whether we agree or not doesn't matter.
