  1. https://coag.gov/resources/frequently-asked-questions/colorado-office-attorney-general-frequently-asked-questions A common-law marriage in Colorado is valid for all purposes, the same as a ceremonial marriage. Only death or divorce can terminate it. The common-law elements of a valid marriage are that the couples (1) are free to contract a valid ceremonial marriage, i.e., they are not already married to someone else; (2) hold themselves out as husband and wife; (3) consent to the marriage; (4) live together; and (5) have the reputation in the community as being married. The single most important element under the common law was the mutual consent of a couple presently to be husband and wife. All the rest were considered evidence of this consent or exchange of promises. No time requirement exists other than the time necessary to establish these circumstances. When proof of common law marriage is required, such as by an insurance company, a signed affidavit can be presented. A sample affidavit is presented here. Common-law marriage is a term used to describe a marriage that has not complied with the statutory requirements most states have enacted as necessary for a ceremonial marriage. The name came from the fact that these marriages were recognized as valid under the common law of England. In 1877, the United States Supreme Court stated, in an action that questioned the validity of a non ceremonial marriage, that marriages that were valid under common law were still valid unless the state passed a statute specifically forbidding them. Meisher v. Moore, 96 U.S. 76 (1877). Since the Colorado legislature has never enacted such a statute, Colorado is part of the minority of states that recognize the validity of common-law marriages.
  2. 1. What was the asset? Since you didn't restate the bit about him retiring I think that was it. 2. What has your attorney said about that issue? 3. People can change their mind. 4. OK, then you were notified. Did you tell your lawyer? 5. People have been known to lie. How did this affect you? 6. A draft is just that a draft. draft /draft/ noun 1. a preliminary version of a piece of writing. "the first draft of the party's manifesto" You aren't being clear about what your issue is nor have you said why you haven't talked to your lawyer about all of this.
  3. Is this three issue or just one centering around your ex retiring? And what state are you in?
  4. I've read your original post a couple of time now and maybe I'm missing something but what exactly do you think that was done by the employer that was illegal? In one sentence answers, please.
  5. I too see no civil rights violations if a legal definition of civil rights is applied. You are probably having a hard time finding a civil rights lawyer, assuming that is the type of lawyer you are looking for because all of the ones you have talked to agree.
  6. I don't suppose you have a copy of that "fake purchase agreement"? Do you have any documentation of any sort?
  7. I did an admittedly quick search of the PA landlord tenant laws and can't find anything that would disallow such a requirement in a lease.
  8. What state did this all happen in? How much is the total value of the trust?
  9. If you violated a state law the state could prosecute you. But why do you think the state would be any more able to find enough evidence to prosecute than the feds were?
  10. I used to subscribe to a couple of different ones but using the internet is really so much easier and certainly cheaper. The laws at the state level change so often that any book you buy today is going to be outdated in a week or two.
  11. You gave us an update based on the fact that it is the anniversary of the accident yet you never told us that a suit had been filed. I call shenanigans.
  12. No. Third offense: A fine and up to 90 days of imprisonment, or between 90-180 days of home suspension.
  13. Then I believe you are done with any chance for a lawsuit. Title VIII LIMITATIONS Chapter 95 LIMITATIONS OF ACTIONS; ADVERSE POSSESSION View Entire Chapter 95.11 Limitations other than for the recovery of real property.—Actions other than for recovery of real property shall be commenced as follows: (1) WITHIN TWENTY YEARS.—An action on a judgment or decree of a court of record in this state.

  14. Unless, of course, the will of the voters is unconstitutional and then he will fight for it.
  15. If you contact PRL with Polo as part of your name you can bet your bottom dollar that you will be sued.
  16. O.S. §, 41 129 A. Unless otherwise agreed, use by the tenant of the dwelling unit for any purpose other than as his place of abode shall constitute a breach of the rental agreement and shall be grounds for terminating the rental agreement. B. If the tenant wrongfully quits and abandons the dwelling unit during the term of the tenancy, the landlord shall make reasonable efforts to make the dwelling unit available for rental. If the landlord rents the dwelling unit for a term beginning before the expiration of the rental agreement, said rental agreement terminates as of the commencement date of the new tenancy. If the landlord fails to use reasonable efforts to make the dwelling unit available for rental or if the landlord accepts the abandonment as a surrender, the rental agreement is deemed to be terminated by the landlord as of the date the landlord has notice of the abandonment. If, after making reasonable efforts to make the dwelling unit available for rental after the abandonment, the landlord fails to rerent the premises for a fair rental during the term, the tenant shall be liable for the entire rent or the difference in rental, whichever may be appropriate, for the remainder of the term. If the tenancy is from month-to-month or week-to-week, the term of the rental agreement for this purpose is deemed to be a month or a week, as the case may be.
  17. Sorry to hear about your problems. But glad to hear you have a lawyer on the job. I assume you asked him any questions you might have as you should because you didn't ask any here.
  18. The military never deletes records. https://www.archives.gov/personnel-records-center/military-personnel
  19. See. You know more about the judge than anyone on this forum. Lawyers local to you will know even more.
  20. You should probably be looking for another job.
  21. What does your lease say about 60-day notice? What state are you in? Why do you NEED a 1st floor unit? Why did you accept a non-1st floor unit to begin with?
