    So then, how does it work if the policy holder (the insured) of that car occasionally lets a friend or relative drive who is not in the household?


    Most auto policies provide coverage for an "insured," which is typically defined to mean a named insured or a person driving the car with permission of a named insured.

    What then is the possible advantage (or consequences legally) for someone (like the wife in this case) to be insured as well as her husband but not be on the title of ownership?


    For starters, you didn't identify the relevant state, and that may make a difference in terms of ownership of the vehicle (regardless of what the title says).  Beyond that, whether something is or isn't advantageous is not a legal issue.  However, to the best of my knowledge, every auto insurer in every state requires that a person buying a policy identify every licensed driver in his/her household, so whether a policyholder's spouse is a "named insured" on the policy, he/she will be an "insured" (unless the policyholder expressly excludes the spouse from coverage).

    So providing the documentation/package indicating my roll off date, severance payment amount, etc does not constitute a contract of sorts?


    I obviously haven't read the documentation in question, but it's unlikely that it does.  A contract is a mutual agreement supported by consideration.  Does the documentation contain any sort of agreement by you and did you give or promise to give your employer anything of value in exchange for the severance payment?

  4. Your question is a bit difficult to understand.


    For starters, what does it mean for a person to be "on" an insurance policy?  Are you saying that the non-owner is a named insured?


    Assuming that's correct, the inclusion of an additional named insured on an auto policy does not create any liabilities for the owner of the car beyond what he/she otherwise has.  Nor does not create any legal "responsibilities" for the non-owner."  Is there some reason you think it might?

  5. Before addressing your question, please tell us your mother's state of residence at the time of her death (and, if different, the state in which "her property and trailer" are located).  Also, "trailer" has a fairly wide number of meanings, so please clarify what it means in your case and what other "property" you're concerned with.

    I was forced by my Public Defender to pled guilty of a Crime I didn’t commit


    Forced?  How did he "force" you?  Did he hold a gun to your head?  Threaten to kill a member of your family?  None of those things or anything even remotely like it?

    he told me that I can not have a Police Detective who was at my residence at the time the girl called my house the day I got out of jail from her calling her local police department that I was harassing her at her residence.


    I have no idea what this might mean.

    is there away I can either get these over turn, thrown out because my lawyer didn’t give me the best advice and defense or can they be expunged?


    Whether your conviction can be expunged obviously depends on what exactly you were convicted of and the laws of the state where the conviction took place.  Bafflingly, you provided no information about either of those things.  Beyond that, your decision to plead guilty was a voluntary choice that you made.  No one "forced" you to plead guilty.  What your defense attorney likely did was tell you about the risks of going to trial and advise you based on those risks.  Needless to say, we're in no position 20 years after the fact to assess how good the attorney's advice was.  However, if you didn't think you got good advice, your recourse was to appeal based on ineffective assistance of counsel.  Regardless of the state where this occurred, the time to do that has long since passed.

  7. Can you be more clear about what the situation is that you want addressed and what your question is?  Please also be clear about who lives where.


    The first half (at least) of your post is a bunch of most irrelevant detail, and the first question you asked is obviously rhetorical.


    Also, I think the word you're trying to use is "jurisdiction."

    If you don't like the word hostility, what do you call a post that does absolutely nothing to address the issues I addressed - but seems to join others in what I can only think is an effort to undermine my efforts in a sick way to elevate themselves.


    Again, the only thing I posted at the other site was a link to the thread at this site where I did "address the issues [you] addressed."  How was posting a link to this existing discussing "undermining" of your efforts?  It wasn't, and it certainly wasn't "hostile."

    I just got a letter from my doctor saying that I need to move to a more secure and assisted living facility with my caretaker.


    Not sure it matters, but why would your doctor have any opinion about the security in your current residence?

    When I called the front office they told me I had to come fill out a reasonable accommodations form.  I can't get to the office


    Why exactly can you not "get to the office."  You presumably have the ability to move to an entirely new residence, how is it that you're unable to "get to the office"?


    Regardless, have you asked your landlord to email you this form so that you can fill it out and get it back to him/her by email (or some other reasonable alternative)?

    My daughter does have a job to help pay the bills here and I have people that check on me daily by phone to make sure I am ok.


    Is there some reason why any of these people can't wheel you over to the office or pick up the form for you?

    In my lease I noticed two things.  My apt. number is wrong and they don't let you break a lease for bad health.


    As to the second point, that's kind of a no-brainer.  Something like that would only be in the lease if it were specifically bargained for or if it were an assisted living facility.  As for the first point, so what?

    What should I do?


    If you read my prior comments (as well as "adjusterjack's" response), then you already know the answer.

    Weather was bad last year


    If you lived in Virginia until December 10, 2018, I'm a little unclear how you could have much of an opinion about the weather in Ventura County, CA "last year."  However, I think the weather in Southern California in 2018 was pretty great.

    I assume you meant uninhabitable.

    now he is neither ready to give our money back , nor ready to talk to that plumber .


    Who is he?  The owner?  Since you've moved out, why would you care if the owner is talking to a plumber?

    what should I do now.


    What should you do about what?  You said that you moved out, so the hot water issue has obviously been resolved.  You mentioned something about someone "giv[ing] [y]our money back," but I'm not sure what you meant by that.

    They want to sue me for libel and slander. Can they? 


    "They"?  A company is an it, and yes, it can sue you.  Anyone can sue anyone for anything.


    I'm curious, though, how you know that your "tax reduction company" wants to sue you.  Did he/she tell you anything beyond, "we want to sue you"?  Specifically, did this person tell you anything about any actual damage that the company suffered as a result of your alleged defamation?  Did this person explain how he/she thought suing for "libel and slander" could be possible based on a written statement?


    What is the business entity form of the company (i.e., is it a corporation or an LLC or something else)?  If the company is an artificial entity such as a corporation or LLC, does your unidentified state's laws allow such entities to bring defamation suits?


    The of this almost certainly is that the person who told you that the company "wants to sue" is just butthurt.  There's virtually no way that the company suffered any damage as a result of your juvenile comment, and it's virtually certain that any court would rule that your comments were not actionable statements of fact but, rather, were non-actionable statements of opinion.

    I stupidly signed an AZ Acknowledgement of Paternity many months ago.


    How many months ago (i.e., exactly when did you sign)?

    I am in the military (tech training) and can't imagine a way I can get to Phoenix for a weekday court appearance. How do I handle that?


    You can ask the court to allow a telephonic or video conference appearance.


    As far as the rest of this, no one who posts here regularly is an attorney in Arizona (much less a family law attorney), so no one here is going to be able to walk you through this process.  You really need to figure out a way to pay for an attorney and, since the mother apparently supports your efforts, perhaps she'll be willing to contribute to the costs.


    The other possibility would be for the mother to file a proceeding to establish one of her other sexual partners as the father of the child.  After all, if you're not the biological father, someone else must be.  Hopefully, the mother can narrow it down to no more than one or two other men.



    P.S.  The comments on this thread at another site suggest you may have have given us the entire story.

    poor quality of work, there is white residue on my car paint and rims


    Is there more to "poor quality of work" than some white residue on the car?  What is the white residue?  Does it wipe or wash off?

    When I dropped my car off at the shop Pete (owner) told me all work is warrantied and when I went to pick up my car Ken (owner) told me there's not warranty.


    Did you ever get anything in writing about a warranty?  What does the supposed warranty apply to?  Parts?  Labor?  Both?  After Ken told you there was no warranty, did you talk with Pete about the situation?  If not, why not?  If so, what was his explanation for Ken saying there is no warranty when he had told you there is a warranty?

    I am incurring daily rental car fees.


    So...the works' not even done?  If it's not done, why are you worried about a white residue on the car?  Do you have reason to believe that, when the work is done, it won't be gone?  Also, is this repair work covered by insurance?  If so, do you have rental car coverage?

    when I go there tomorrow around noon, can I legally give them a check and place a stop payment on it


    Giving someone a check with the intent of stopping payment on it would be a crime.

    I don't understand what "file[] a small claims action . . . for a reduced bill" might mean.

    Can I place the check amount in an escrow account until a judge determines what I actually owe them?


    You can do as you like with your own checks.


    If you're asking if there's a way you can force the repair shop to give you your car without paying for the work, the answer is no, and nothing you wrote suggests you have any viable legal claim.  If, when you pick up your car, the work isn't done properly, then you might have a viable claim.

    I was arrested at a bar in 2017


    For what?

    I find out the DMV had revoked my license.

    Now I did check on this through my local law enforcement. I surrendered my license and they gave it back and said everything is fine with it.


    I'm not sure I follow this.  You wrote that the DMV revoked your license, so why would you "check on this through [your] local law enforcement" or surrender your license to local law enforcement?  Local law enforcement have nothing to do with a DMV revocation.



    20 hours ago, Derek_Rainey said:

    Now the DMV is resetting the revocation period to start  this year because I challenged the validity of the initial arrest.


    I'm now about halfway through the first paragraph, and I can't understand the connection between your "arrest[] at a bar" and the revocation of your license.



    20 hours ago, Derek_Rainey said:

    Is there anything I can do any rules, statues, case laws from having a hearing almost a year after the revocation period was over and having to wait another year before I can get my license or some belief that law enforcement would happen to tell the truth every once in awhile?


    Since you haven't described what happened or why with any clarity, it's going to be awfully difficult for anyone here to tell you anything useful.

    Would he have a wrongful termination case here




    Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is terminated in violation of law.  More often than not, it involves discrimination based on things like race, ethnicity, gender, etc.


    By any chance is/was your husband a member of a labor union that has a collective bargaining agreement with his former employer?  Your description of the job make me think that might be the case.  Also, in what state did this happen?

    Sorry, but what exactly does "handling the her death" mean?

    My question is in order just to have a lawyer follow up on  the the unclear numbers he came up with, Would I be able to get a lawyer in Fla to follow up or would I need to get a lawyer from Toledo?


    Not really clear what you mean by this.  Any lawyer, regardless of location, can look at what the Toledo lawyer has done and give you an opinion.  Beyond that, it depends on what exactly the Toledo lawyer is doing.



    I agree that answers to the questions that "adjusterjack" asked may prove helpful.

    My property was damaged at a storage facility (rodents and water, mold and mildew) and the insurance company doesn't want to pay.


    What insurance company?  Yours?  An insurer who provided a policy to the owner of the storage facility?  What sort of policy are we talking about?  Do you have a copy of the policy?  Why doesn't the insurer "want to pay"?

    They are offering such a small amount, that its degrading.


    So...wait...in the first sentence of your post, you wrote that the insurer didn't "want to pay," but now you seem to be saying that the insurer is willing to pay,   Which is it?



    14 hours ago, Fraud said:

    Is there an Attorney out there that can take on this case?


    Sure.  Any attorney licensed to practice law in your unidentified state "can take on this case," but it's not clear from your post whether you have a viable case or against whom.
