  1. I have been negotiating transfer of my 30% ownership of a property to my partner who initiated this and who owns the other 60% (in Louisiana). The property has been under construction and I am the general contractor. We have been negotiating the price via e-mail for over 3 months. In December, we agreed on the price for the building in its current condition. However, my partner kept bringing in different conditions. I began working on the building and now I realize that I would be better off to complete the construction and then decide what to do. Am I legally bound to sell my share if my partner goes to a lawyer? Can I just let my partner know that I do not want to sell my share to him at the moment?
  2. Hi, I have a question that I cannot seem to find my own answer for. I have been researching for a few days, but I need to see if I can get some other advice. I live in Louisiana and my husband and I are living in his grandmother's house and are planning on buying it one day in the future. His grandmother is still alive, but she is living with my husbands mother, which is her daughter, in Arkansas because she has gotten to where she cannot take care of herself living alone. In July, we moved in the house because she didn't want it to be left unoccupied for a long period of time. Now we have a problem, the grandmother's other grandchildren, they belong to her other daughter, are trying to sue her for their mother's part of the estate, she passed away a couple of years ago. I know that Louisiana has forced heirs for either 24 years of age and under, or a child of a decendent who is incapicitated. I wouldn't say she was incapiciated, but she did have to live in a nursing home for almost a year close to where her daughter lived, but she was never declared incapable of taking care of herself. She was a heavy drug user for decades, and she frequently stole from my husband's grandmother to buy her drugs. I know that my husband's grandmother has a will drawn up and is leaving the house to my husband's mother, but with them trying to sue, they could possibly get half of the house, that is really all my husband's grandmother has, her house, and personal belongings that are inside the house. We have property taxes that are coming due next month that is almost 700.00, I don't want us to put money into this house if it is going to be sold out from underneath us, can someone please give me some advice on the laws in Louisiana on this? I don't see how they can sue her for half of her house when she is still alive, but, I have seen some dirty families before and I just want to be prepared and not waste my money on a house that I will end up having to leave. Thanks, Ashley
  3. My sis in law is widowed with 2 girls and now recently married to someone she met online and who the family is concerned about. She and he have been married about 8 months and she has started the adoption process for him to adopt her kids. She also has cancer again and it seems to be terminal this time. She has alienated most of her family due to the fact that most of us were skeptical of the new husband and so we only get limited information about their lives. Recently we found out that her new husband started choking her while she was asleep in the living room and her girls had to help her fight him off. She pressed charges and he went to jail for 3 days but then she went back with him and has probably dropped charges bc he said it was his medication and he doesn't remember anything. Whew. So my questions are: Can the adoption still go forward normally? Or is there an automatic waiting period when something like that happens? Can it be contested after the fact if we learn that her illness was affecting her decisions to let him adopt? Ex. If she has brain cancer and is not in her right mind. Can it be contested now and if so by whom? Before she met and married this man she asked my husband and I to take her girls if she ever died but now she is wanting this relative stranger to raise her kids if she dies. We are all concerned that this guy is not a good and stable person. There have been red flags from the beginning and now the choking incident is added to the situation. It's just surreal. And she is not acting like her normal self either.

  6. I need advice, I currently have joint custody with my ex. I'm DP. NCP consistently violates CJ regarding visitation And he does not pay court ordered CS. Child support enforcement is after him but he refuses to show up for any hearings. He also has past issues with alcohol. Has always had mental and anger issues, ie, failed psych eval for navy to obtain security clearance. Is unable to hold a job because he is always being fired for his anger problems. He also has Aspergers which makes it difficult for him to properly care for child. None of which was bought up at our mediation. But due to new circumstances, I would like to get sole custody, what are my chances?
  7. My child's father was arrested for indecent behavior with juveniles and a sexual assault his ex-girlfriend with accessory to indecent behavior and obstruction of justice. I went to the clerk of court the day after I found out and got a restraining order for my daughter. Since then his parents have been trying to see my child and I just cannot trust them. They bonded him out of jail and are calling the victims liars. I have also had two health care professional and the Chief of D’s tell me not to let the grandparents be with her unsupervised. The grandparents have called twice in the last 3 days and the grandmother showed up at my house today without permission, she has never been to my home before this. She had brought gifts for my daughter’s birthday. The visit did not upset my daughter at first but later she became upset when it hit her that her grandfather didn’t come and her father didn’t send her a gift. She also told my daughter about the ex-girlfriends children being in a bad car accident and told her the injuries the children had. This is something she should have told me privately and let me decide the best way to tell her, if at all. The accident happened the day of her birthday party and she feels responsible for it since the children were not at our house. Before the grandmother left she told me she wants to see my child at her house. I found out recently that my child's grandparents plan to sue for visitation of her, her half-sister, and the children of their son's ex-girlfriend. I have temporary full custody of my daughter through a restraining order; her half-sister's mother has full custody with supervised visitation for the father, and the children of the ex-girlfriend now live with their father who now has full custody. Should I get an attorney now, which I cannot afford, or wait until their son is convicted?

  9. I have two questions. I was in a wreak and my car had to be towed. I went to where it was towed and everything was still in my car. When the Insurance Company for the guy was @ fault everything had been removed. There were a lot of things missing. I have to sign the title over before they will send me a check. Is there anything I can do? Also, my company denied my medical leave because I needed 1,400 hours and I have 1,082. The problem is everyone is part time. I have been tried to for two years in a row to get Medical Insurance and have been denied coverage because you have to have at least 20 hours to get it and they said I averaged 18 hours a week. If you take 18 x 52 weeks it comes to 926 hours a year. So how could I ever make the 1,450 hours to get leave? Thank you.
  10. I had 3 Uncles who all lived together--all of who now are deceased. As heirs to one of my Uncle's (my deceased Mother's brother), who died without a will, would we have any "say so" on the sale of the 1/3% ownership of the house he left behind, as far as what it should sell for, what real estate agent will sell the house, etc.? And, shouldn't we all, (as heirs), agree on the final selling price of the house, even though we only have 1/3% interest in the house? (The other 2/3% of the whole estate was left, BY WILL, to a cousin, (as Executor), and an Aunt). Since my mother is deceased, would a succession necessarily be needed as inheritors, (as her children), of my Uncle's estate? My Mother really had nothing of value...however, as heirs to our Mother, would we all, (6 of us), still receive a share of the % of the sale of my late Uncle's home,(even though our Mother is now deceased)? Color us totally confused. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Can an estate be "challenged" even though a will is established, where said inheritor inherits all property (vehicles, home, monetary assets, etc.)? In other words, can an estate be challenged whereas a "freeze" can be put on the inheritor, as far as halting a sale on inherited vehicles, home, etc., even though a planned upcoming dissolution of estate will occur? Approx. how long does a "simple" succession take, if the person died back in 2008? Is there such an answer to this? What pertinent information will be needed to conduct a succession? This person had no will when deceased, and has only a possible inheritance due to heirship, which is in a preliminary status at this time. Sorry if this inquiry is so vague, I'm putting down words as best as I can, in my own way.
