    Can/does my boyfriend have to sign the legal documents, or does my mother have to due to me being 17?


    What "legal documents" are you talking about?

    Will my SSI disability go to me or my mother?


    Almost certainly to your mother.

    Do I have to get a redetermination?


    Redetermination of what?  Why is your mother getting SSI disability benefits for you?

    Would me and my boyfriend be able to survive with minimum wage jobs? (plus SSI)


    There are people who "survive" without any jobs at all.  If, at the age of 16, your only goal is survival, that's awfully sad, and I'd suggest you give a lot of thought about whether this move you're contemplating is something that will be conducive to you living a long, healthy and happy life.

    Thinking of incorporating an LLP


    "LLP" stands for limited liability partnership.  One can form or create an LLP, and one can incorporate a corporation, but one cannot "incorporat[e] an LLP."  Also, in at least some states, the LLP business entity form is limited to certain professions (e.g., law firms).  What exactly is the nature of your business and why do you want to use the LLP form over other business entity forms?

    I just needed to know what all documents are required for the registration process?


    Hire a local attorney.  If you insist on doing it yourself, the documents that are needed rather obviously vary from state to state but can be ascertained with some very simple google searches.  Or you can use one of many online services.

    How often should a person check and/or update his will?


    Updating should occur when relevant events occur (e.g., acquisition of significant asset, birth or death of beneficiary, etc.).


    Beyond that, your post raises no legal issue.  It's unfortunate that your father told you something that he either never intended to do or never got around to do, but that's not your sister's problem.  Nor is it her problem that you apparently viewed your father as a source of money.

    I'm assuming there's nothing else I can do now to contest the outcome.


    Even if you had grounds to contest something (which you probably didn't), it's way too late now.

  4. Please don't start new threads when there's already an existing thread about this topic.

    I know that anyone can sue for anything but two Public Hearings are being by the Planning Office held to address any questions/issues.  If the County rules in my favor approving the rezone, can I still be sued?


    As you noted, anyone can sue anyone for anything, so I'm not sure why you're asking this question, and I assume you're not asking about the merits of a hypothetical lawsuit, the basis for which is completely unknown to us, so I'm not sure what you're intending to ask.

  5. Are you seriously asking us to guess about the intent of a judge in a case we know absolutely nothing about?


    We all could guess, but it would be utterly pointless to do so and of no value whatsoever to you.  If you have an attorney, ask him/her about this.

    I was on a joint lease with a roommate. We both signed termination lease agreement.


    Did your landlord also sign this agreement?



    1 hour ago, egx3 said:

    The roommate claims I owe her the fee amount even though she signed the agreement to terminate that states there is a fee. Do I legally owe her?


    Your post provides no information from which anyone could intelligently answer this question, except that the agreement (presumably with the landlord) that provides that the two of you, jointly and severally, owe the landlord a fee likely has no relevance to how the fee should legally be allocated between the two of you.  What is her argument as to why you allegedly owe her anything?  In addition to this question and those asked in the prior response, please also identify your state.

  7. If you don't want to provide relevant information, that's up to you.


    Dozens upon dozens of folks post here every week.  You go weeks or months between posting, and if you think I'm going to remember details of your case, you're crazy.  You're also crazy if you think all the circuits are basically the same.  At a bare minimum, at least be clear that you're talking about a federal court.


    By the way, this is the first time I can recall you affirmatively saying that you don't want to identify the court.

  8. Please don't use funky fonts and all caps.  It makes it unnecessarily hard to read what you write (and all caps is typically considered "shouting").

    Who exactly are these "inlaws"?  You said your husband's father and his stepmother died.  You didn't mention his mother, but you did mention three of his siblings, so I assume that's whom you're talking about.

    Isn't  a motion requesting the court to expedite execution of mandate because neither party will pursue rehearing nor rehearing en banc  basically withdrawal of an appeal, what is their for a court to feel?


    I don't know what the last eight words of this sentence might mean.  Regardless, the court will issue the mandate in its own time.  Depending on what circuit the case is in, the judges and clerks might just be really backed up.



    1 hour ago, foolish said:

    can the court sua sponte reconsider or cast the case for en banc consideration?


    I don't know what this means, but en banc consideration is almost never going to happen unless someone requests it.

    this a federal court of appeals court


    Is there a reason why, after over 1,000 posts here, you can't seem to get it through your head that you need to identify the jurisdiction when you post?

  10. 38 minutes ago, foolish said:

    How long does it take for the court to execute mandate since no rehearing, or rehearing en banc will be sought by either party


    Depends on the applicable state (or federal) law, the applicable court rules and how the judge(s) who consider your request feel about your request.



    39 minutes ago, foolish said:

    what could be the delay in the mandate issuing normally the mandate would issue that same day or the next day, its been a week since appellee's filed their non-opposition response 


    Literally thousands of things "could be the [reason for] the delay.  What purpose would be served by guessing about this?


    Also, doesn't this relate to a thread you started last week?  If so, why are you starting yet another thread?

    here are the relevant materials I found which lead me to believe he was negligent by both act and ommission:






    The first link is to a statute that allows for a complaint "to a dog control officer or police officer of the appropriate municipality.  Such officer shall immediately inform the complainant of his or her right to commence a proceeding as provided in subdivision two of this section and, if there is reason to believe the dog is a dangerous dog, the officer shall forthwith commence such proceeding himself or herself."  Subdivision 2 discusses the procedure for making a complaint in a municipal or justice court.


    The second link is to a published opinion that is longer than I'm willing to read.  Also, FYI, I'm not in NY and, as far as I know, neither is any other regular at this site.


    Here's a link to the web site of a NY lawyer who purports to be "the dog bite king of the legal universe."  It seems to have a pretty good discussion of the relevant law.


    As far as the duty, again, since the attack happened when your dog trespassed on the neighbor's property, I'm skeptical that you could sue successfully, but by all means consult with a local attorney.

  12. What would make you think we need or want to see nasty pictures of your dog's injuries?



    11 minutes ago, JamesM said:

    Did he violate a duty of care in this incident which would expose him to liability, and specifically do I have a case to proceed with a dangerous dog action under NY state law?


    I'm not familiar with any "dangerous dog" laws in NY, but your dog trespassed on the neighbor's property, so it's unlikely that you could successfully sue for the damage to your dog.  You can contact the local animal control officer.

    Took the car to the dealership to put GPS on it required by the lender and when I did they informed me that my down payment payment hadn't gone through until I took the car in to have the GPS done and then they called me when we were on our way back to the dealership to pick up the car and informed me that the last payment was not made it was insufficient and that they were going to hold on to the car until we paid for it but at the beginning they said and we made an agreement that there would be payments made on the down payment and that the full down payment was due by the end of September it's only the 1st of September and they will not give my car back


    Maybe I missed it since you used no punctuation or capital letters here (other than "I" and "GPS," but it doesn't appear there's a question here.  Do you have a question?

    I was wondering if there was a case to where I could recoup some of the money I lost for not working for a month and being charged for unnecessary procedures during that month in the hospital.?


    The only person who can intelligently assess the merits of a potential medical malpractice case is a local attorney who specializes in that area and who has reviewed the relevant medical records.

    In 2016 me n his mother decided to go our spread ways and I split all of our sons living cost with her. We were fine until she found out I was in a relationship with a women that had four children of her own. Now me n this women are married


    So...I'm guessing that you and the child's mother were never married.  Correct?  If so, was your paternity ever established?  If so, how was it established?  FYI, "my name is on the birth certificate" is not an answer to that question.  Also, in what state do you live (and, if different, in what state was the child born)?

    I pay. Child support order  and do whatever else is needed from me.


    Not really sure what all this means.

    If there's a custody/visitation order in place that the mother is violating, then you need to enforce it.  If no such order exists, then you need to petition the court to get one.  I suggest you confer immediately with a local family law attorney.

    What can i do.


    For starters, was your paternity ever established?  If so, how was it established?  Are there existing court orders relating to custody and visitation?  Your statements that you "never went to court" and that you "both have custody" are conflicting.


    The bottom line, though, is that, unless there is a court order that prohibits her from taking the kids with her when she visits her husband, she is entirely within her rights to take them.

    Seek appropriate medical treatment.


    If you're thinking you might have some legal claim against the hotel, that's unlikely.  Oil in parking lots is common, and you're supposed to watch where you're walking.  Nevertheless, the hotel's insurance coverage almost certainly has a component that will pay some amount (maybe $5-10k) for medical expenses regardless of legal liability, so you should inquire with the manager about that.

    It wasn't stolen.

    And there won't be any issue with the fact that it's been sitting there for over a year?


    She's certainly going to be asked why it took her seven-plus months after the guy's death to do something about this.  The explanation you gave above is pretty weak, but if that's all she's got....


    And yes, calling the police and/or the insurance company would be a good idea

    My son called her insurance company and was told they didn't have a policy with that number. They have only wanted to give him 1/3 of what the truck is worth, he declined.  They don't want to pay for a rental pick up and as of today they still have not settled this.


    Who are 'they"?  If you're talking about the insurance company that the other driver identified, why would an insurance company that didn't have a policy covering the driver offer anything?



    On 8/31/2019 at 2:26 PM, PamW said:

    What other options does he have besides a lawyer.


    The most obvious option would be to make a claim against his own collision coverage (assuming he carried it).



    On 8/31/2019 at 2:26 PM, PamW said:

    Are they legally obligated to pay for the rental $100 a day for a pick up, a fair price for his pick up truck and if so how can we make them.


    Unless your son is a minor or you own the truck he was driving, there is no "we."  No way $100/day is reasonable to rent a pickup truck.
