  1. Let me make sure I understand the facts. For starters, in what state is the property located? Your son bought the property using money you gave or loaned him (which was it?) before he got married. Correct? How much did you give/loan to him? When did he purchase the property (month and year)? I assume that the money you gave/loaned your son was used for the down payment. Correct? Did he also take out a mortgage (or did you give/loan him the full purchase price)? If the money you sent to your son was a loan, was there a written loan agreement and/or did you receive a mortgage? When did he get married? Did your son have a will? If so, does it provide for anything other than the entire estate going to his wife? Did your son have any minor children? Sure you can. Anyone can sue anyone for anything. But what basis do you think you have to sue your son's wife? Your post has two rather distinct subjects. You started off by talking about the house, but then you started talking about personal belongings that you apparently had at your son's house. Why did you have personal belongings at your son's house? If you answer my questions, I and others can offer you further insight.

    Huh? Not sure what this question means. Anyone can sue anyone for anything, but perhaps this following answers the question you likely intended to ask: "After registering, no portion of the outstanding fees will be refunded or cancelled, in whole or in part, in case of absence, withdrawal, suspension, divorce, separation, expulsion or departure from school due to job relocation." Sounds like an "expulsion" to me.
  3. From your other thread: "I have lived in home for 10 yrs. It has a separate garage. this winter the roof of the garage caved in and it is useless now. I have had to move all the boxes I stored in there into my dining room. I also, can no longer keep my motorcycle in there and have to pay to store it. Can I get back a portion of the rent I have paid for the loss of the garage and dining room. IT is not in the same CONDITION THAT I AGREED TO PAY 700.00 FOR" Unlikely. Why didn't you move out immediately after this happened and the landlord didn't make the repairs?
  4. This is basically related to your other thread, so I'm going to cut and paste what you posted here and respond there. Maybe a moderator will consolidate the threads.
  5. "[W]ithhold[ing] rent to force repairs" makes no sense. Even where it is permissible to withhold rent, the purpose of doing so is for the tenant to take the money and have the repairs done him/herself. In other words, you'd need to pay to repair the issues you identified and then deduct the amounts you paid from the rent. In any event, the far better solution almost certainly is for you to give notice and move.
  6. There's nothing you've posted that makes me think this is correct. Virginia has both no-fault and fault based grounds for divorce. For a no-fault divorce you need to be separated for a year or more (unless you have entered into a property settlement or separation agreement). You can get a divorce based on adultery, but it will be more costly and difficult. Not sure if there's more to tell you beyond what I've already written, but one of the regulars here ( @RetiredinVA ) is or was a Virginia lawyer, so perhaps he/she will have something to add.
  7. Anyone can sue anyone for anything.
  8. Of course you can seek it. You also can seek the Holy Grail, Cibola, the Loch Ness Monster and the Fountain of Youth. If your question is whether you're legally entitled to injunctive or other relief, your post provides no information from which anyone could form an informed opinion. You didn't tell us anything about this deferral agreement with the County Treasurer. Nor did you tell us why the city incarcerated, for how long you were incarcerated or why you believe the incarceration was wrongful. Based on your description, I see no connection, but I'll reserve judgment until you provide clearer facts. As for the rest of your post, I don't see what a case your brother was involved in or your educational background have to do with your situation.
  9. Located in what state? Has either of you actually filed for divorce? If so, was that done in RI or in your state of residence? If either of you wants a divorce, the other cannot prevent it. You can file anytime you like. Keep in mind that, since you didn't identify your state, we cannot comment on filing requirements in that state. If it's a joint account or other account to which you legally have access, you can. Not really sure what you mean by this. Not sure what this question means either but, while you didn't identify your state, I have a hard time believing you would not be entitled to permanent alimony/spousal support under the laws of every state. Of course, nothing in your post provides any information that could be used to speculate about how much a court might award.
  10. While you may be correct about this, this thread is nearly seven years ago. Why would you resurrect it?
  11. Just to be clear, in 2007, you signed the agreement with Company X. Sometime after that, all of the shares of Company X were purchased by Company Z. Now, in 2019, you want to apply for a job with Company Z, not Company X. Correct? How is it that you know about Company Z buying the shares of Company X? We have no conceivable way of knowing because we've obviously never read the agreement you signed and know absolutely nothing about the circumstances under which it was signed. At a bare minimum, you'll need to quote the relevant language from the agreement (with any names removed or redacted) and give us a brief summary of the circumstances that caused your former employer to want to include this provision in the severance agreement.
  12. Although the OP likely can withdraw as executor/administrator.
  13. I assume "they" and "them" refer to the county sheriff who was in charge of the jail. Correct? Are you the court appointed personal representative of your cousin's estate? Did your cousin have a will? Was your cousin married at the time of his death? Did your cousin have any issue (i.e., children, grandchildren, etc.)? If the answer to all of these questions, then your cousin's father is the sole heir to the estate and, as a result, is entitled to the entire estate. Of course, if the answer to any of those questions is yes, then that changes things significantly. You can call him all the names you like (and I'm assuming you don't literally mean that the guy was a sperm donor), but that doesn't change his status as your cousin's father, and the law does not make entitlement to inheritance dependent on the subjective quality of the heir's relationship with the deceased.
  14. Truth cannot be defamatory and, as I wrote previously, the fact that the conviction was reversed doesn't mean that everything leading up to that didn't happen. You were accused of whatever it was, and you were convicted. Your conviction was then reversed. All that's true. Lots of things "never should have" happened, but that doesn't mean the world should pretend they didn't happen. Who are "they" and "we"? A company that operates an internet search engine should not be prohibited from returning search results that contain factually accurate information. No one is defaming you. You're entitled to that opinion, but you're very much in the minority and, as long as the First Amendment exists, what you want isn't going to happen. Also, the reversal of your conviction does not mean you were "exonerated." The reversal of your conviction simply negates the original guilty verdict. It doesn't mean you didn't actually do the crime.
  15. Her estate should be probated in her state of residence (assuming probate is necessary under that state's laws). The best initial meetings between a lawyer and client involve the lawyer asking the potential client questions, not the other way around. That said, ask whatever questions you want answered. Obviously, fees should be a topic of discussion. FYI, probate attorneys typically get a paid a percentage of the estate's value rather than on an hourly basis. Ask a lawyer if he/she will give you contact information for a couple former clients whom you could call to get feedback about the lawyer. In my opinion, however, a lawyer should never do that unless a client has consented in advance to such contact, so it may be difficult to make this happen.
  16. I'm not sure what "this stuff" and "this information" refer to, but Google is but a search engine that searches and provides links to various web sites, and there's nothing illegal or improper about posting truthful information about what happened to you. That your conviction was reversed does not mean everything that led up to it magically disappears. Your case resulted in a published opinion of the California Court of Appeal. That's forever.
  17. Yes, and they routinely do exactly that. Keep in mind, however, that this is an incredibly broad question. Yes. Based only on the incredibly limited and general facts in your post, no.
  18. I have no idea what that means, and your follow up post only appears to provide the most minimal of new information. As previously noted, absent some reason to believe otherwise, your divorce decree is a matter of public record and, therefore, there is no privacy interest in it.
  19. Is that an actual quote? If so, is this language followed by the language you put in quotation marks in your original post? Just FYI, your use of a contraction ("you'll") makes me think you might be summarizing rather than quoting. While I'm still curious why the landlord cares about this, the only question is how much you're on the hook for. Based solely on what you put in your original post, I think you have the better argument -- i.e., that the more appropriate charge is $110, not $160.
  20. Can you quote the provision in the lease that imposes this requirement? Have you asked your landlord why he/she/it cares about you having a utility on that you aren't using? In what state is your residence located? Who are "they"? If "they" refers to your landlord, why would your landlord know that you had turned off the gas? Depends on what "per violation" means. I tend to agree that your interpretation that your act of turning off the gas was only a single "violation" makes sense, but interpreting it to mean that a new "violation" occurs each month that the service is off is not completely unreasonable.
  21. Generally, no. Ok....and? After your lawyer told you this, did you ask him/her why that is the case and did he/she explain it in a way that makes sense to you?
  22. This is a six month old thread that has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic of your post. Please start your own thread under the correct category.
  23. Well...you told us that she is doing it, so.... If your child's mother is not complying with the court order, you need to ask the court to hold her in contempt. Consult with a local family law attorney.
  24. I have to wonder where a 17 year old acquired so much legal knowledge that he/she feels competent to opine that such a lawsuit would result in significant losses. No. It's all legal. Lawsuits are not designed to earn profits. Where meritorious, lawsuits are designed to put the damaged person back in the same place he/she would have been but for the legal wrong. Yes, you could have sought a new job.
  25. I agree with the prior response, and the answer to your question is yes.
