  1. Looking to leave our two homes to our daughter. Both have good equity, but also have liens on them. What will be her responsibility in regards to the liens. Must she refinance them or can she continue to pay on them as they are in our names? To avoid probate, can we do this in a living trust or is there a better way?
  2. I hope I am posting this situation under the correct category, or if I am not that I will be directed to the proper one. A few years ago my sister's two children were visiting their father for the weekend and CPS was called which ended in the children being removed from the father's home due to a harmful living environment. CPS were going to return the children to my sister, their mother, but could not do so because she was staying at my older sister's house and her husband (our brother-in-law) had an old felony, so they could not let the children stay with her there. Since that was the only living situation she had at the moment, CPS offered to take them into temporary custody and place them in a temporary foster care agency until she provided a stable living environment that met CPS criteria. My sister agreed to this for the good of her children. The CPS case was soon closed - as she was not found at fault for anything - and the father voluntarily gave up his rights. After the CPS case was closed, the foster care agency took over and assigned my sister a case worker. The case worker was supposed to work with my sister and provide referral services to help her, and they did not do those things. My sister had stable living conditions, but the foster care agency did not give her children back, instead they told her she couldn't have them back and that she needed parenting classes, drug tests, and psych evaluations. My sister did all parenting classes, passed numerous drug tests, and was cleared on all psych evaluations. They still would not give the children back, claiming she did not meet CPS requirements, which at the time she had believed them and continued to work hard to meet their standards, but in fact she did meet the CPS criteria to have her children returned. Now the foster care agency is keeping information from her, and giving her false information. They split her kids up into two separate foster care homes. My sister was soon served with papers to have her parental rights terminated so the foster family of her youngest son could adopt him, but the papers were served to her the day before the hearing, which she contested, but her papers "were not received" and since they "didn't receive" an answer, they automatically terminated her rights and adopted him out. The foster care agency is only supposed to start the adoption process once a judge has ruled that family unification is impossible, however no such ruling was ever made. Now they are trying to do the same thing with her second son, they are pushing for her to sign her rights over, which she won't do, and they are taking her to court in order to terminate her rights so he can be adopted out to a separate family. My question is: Is what this foster care agency doing legal? Can she sue them? I know she is trying to find a lawyer at this point and time, but hasn't found one yet and so has not gotten legal advice on what all she can do to stop this from happening. She has a stable living environment, she has a daughter that goes to daycare and is doing remarkable, and she is currently trying to go to school to become a CNA.
  3. I have custody of my three Great Grand children for 5 years and the mother wants to get the back in her custody. I feel she is ready and responsible to get them back. What would be my first step to give them back ?
  4. I have a 17 year old child that is a hit with the smaller children in our new neighborhood. They follow him, want him to play with him and so forth. He is full of energy so he enjoys playing with the children. Recently I've had an issue with our next door neighbor. My son "back talked" her one day and she has had it out for him since then. One afternoon several children were playing outside and HER daughter started pinching the boys butts (the daughter is 9). All of the children thought it was funny and started doing that to one another. The neighbor went ballistic on my son and she and my husband talked about it and from my understanding the situation was rectified. My son was told that he was no longer allowed to play with any children under the age of 13. 10 days later there were some boys in her backyard jumping on the trampoline. She told my son that he was welcome to go jump with them. A few minutes later I called him and told him to go home. Shortly after he left, her ex whom I have never laid eyes on before, came to my door when I was not home and threatened my son. He told him that he "molested" the girl and he would "mop the street with him". I was on my way home. The police were called and the man was issued a criminal trespass warning. They also issued a trespass warning to my son and said he was not allowed at their home. He explained to the officer that he was invited and the officer said it doesn't matter... just stay away from their home to avoid conflict. So he has done just that. Since this has happened, this woman has gone up and down our street telling the neighbors that my son is a pedophile and molested her daughter. She has told the girl that it is okay to say these things and she even went to the school and told kids in school that she was molested. Several of the neighborhood parents have approached me saying that they were there during the "hiney pinching" incident and they have known her long enough to know that she causes trouble in the neighborhood at least once a year. She told one of the other neighbors that "the legal issues arent over yet". I am so worried that she and her daughter have been going around fabricating all these stories so that they can cause trouble for my son. She is 30 and still thinks life is high school from my understanding. She lives with her mother and has a record of drug use and dwi's. She even hit a woman while drunk and caused the woman to miscarry! Unknowingly, I've moved into crazy ghetto town I guess (I've only had my home 11 months). What do I do if he's falsely accused and arrested?? Can I sue her for defamation or slander?
  5. We moved in to our current rental house in September 2006 The owner died in April 2014 and her son took over until he sold the house in February 2016, her son's business is downstairs from us and we give the rent check to his secretary each month. We paid a $500 security deposit and $0 pet deposit when we moved in 9.5 yrs ago. The new owner wants a new security deposit ($1250) and a pet deposit ($300) He also wants background checks for each adult ($20 each) and wants us to pay for them. I did a little research and found section 92.105 (TX) states that a new deposit is not allowed unless the house was foreclosed on. That the original deposit transfers over to the new owner during the purchase transaction. http://www.tenant.net/Other_Areas/Texas/txlihs/tenant.html#anchor1243641 I haven't researched the pet deposit and background check issues yet. Am I reading this correctly? Thanks for your help Brian
  6. What is the final disposition of a deferred adjudication plea? I was under the understanding that deferred adjudication would result in the case being "dismissed" in consideration for successfully completed probation? Wouldn't the judge be the only one who could revoke the probation? I would think any revocation would not only be based upon the recommendation of the Probation Officer and/or District Attorney? but would also require a hearing before the judge?
  7. My father felt sick while onboard a Norwegian cruise. He went to the ships doctor, who insisted my dad go to the hospital in Belize. My dad said he would prefer to go to our cabin and rest. The doctor again insisted that my dad must go to the hospital as he could have a heart attack. I asked if someone was going to come with us because we had never been to Belize before and had no idea how to get to the hospital. The doctor said that we would have someone with us and the hospital would be expecting us. We got on the ferry that was to take us to shore and suddenly we found ourselves alone. When we arrived in Belize there was no one there to meet us. We asked the person who was in charge of the ferry and he went to find the lady that he said worked for NCL. He came back 5 minutes later with Evette. She was mad because she said no one had contacted her about the situation. She called her immediate boss who also said they didnt know anything. She said she would call a driver. We waited 15 minutes in the rain for the driver. The whole time I was crying because I thought my dad would have a heart attack any minute. When we got to the hospital they had no idea who we were. However, the cardiologist gave my dad several tests, and determined that he did not have a heart condition. He actually found nothing wrong with him and approved him to return to the ship. When we got back to the ship I asked the nurse what the correct procedure for sending someone to the hospital in a foreign country is and she said that an ambulance was supposed to be there to take us to the hospital. I asked who she called and she couldnt give me a name. It turns out that my dad has myeloma. He has a suppressed immune system and his risk of infection is extremely high. My dad got a cold from being out in the rain. He was actually hospitalized because of it when he got back to Australia. The rest of our trip was ruined because he was so sick. Usually he is the life of the party, but he laid in bed the rest of the time. Because he was sick my mother and I stayed with him the whole time. Over 6,000 on a cruise and then a huge 2,000 bill from the ship doctor (they did refund a 400 of it), and my dad got sicker because of it. I would never have gone on a Norwegian cruise if I realized that they leave people with life threatening illnesses alone in foreign countries to find their own way to the hospital.
  8. Hello, I am trying to proof that my ex husband, who has the same first and (first) middle name like our sons, was using their SSN numbers to sign up and obtain services using the children's SSN. I know the only difference is in the DOB and the second middle name of the still minor children. My first step will be calling the credit bureaus to obtain their credit history. Is there already something I need to mention or request right upfront during that call (ie. caller requesting the call to be recorded, if not automatically done so, or adding a fraud alert on their accounts etc.) to have later, as well, liable proof of misuse (if proven), that will as well stand up in custody court? I, personally for my part, have found already numerous proofs that my ex husband did use my SSN and copies of DL, to obtain municipal services under my name AFTER our separation and as well divorce, had opened up bank accounts and committed tax fraud. (all of that has already been reported, documented and filed with authorities). However, I want to make sure the children's future is protected by clearing up their credit history, if he done or might attempt such actions under their name as well, I know the only sure way to protect their names in the future would be a legal name change, but that as well would have to involve family court....and without a strong documentation behind the requested reasons I am not sure if that would be as easy as it sometimes sounds. Hence the questions, what forms of documentation is needed to to make a case, if the findings show misuse of their ID and SSN. Thanks for anyone reading, pondering and responding.
  9. Took AT&T mobility to small claims court. They cited Texas rules of civil procedure 92, General denial as their response. What does this mean and how should I proceed?
  10. Hi all, I am the Maintenance Supervisor for an infamous apt complex her in Texas. I started this deal with my landlord that i would work for her and her husband at 7.50/hr @ 42.5 hours is 318.75 and she would take out my rent each week 181.25 and I should get 137.50 cash. Well, that happened for a little while until they had to go work on the mall they own in Arkansas. then no work no money. I hurt my back working on a job for them, went to the ER and she advised me that i was fired and threatened to turn off my power. Nonetheless, since i haven't had a paycheck since Christmas, I found a second job, long story short, she fires me and tells me that i have two days to get out... Now then, this is a small piece of a big pie filled with corruption and deceit; therefore, can someone guide me in the right direction so that when i talk to an attorney here, I have a general idea of what my objectives are. I am however; contacting the Texas Tenants Advisor's Monday. Thank you and God Bless
  11. Thank you for taking the time to read this. all infomation is public info that anyone can access. If you would like to see docs that i mention please let me know and i can setup a secure way for you to view them. My collage/friend signed a plea agreement in a federal criminal case in the Southern District of Texas. She is currently severing a 78 month sentience. After her public defender convenced her to take a plea snice she could not afford the discovery. Keep in mind the victim worth about 60 million. She also was ordered to pay the victim 1.3 million back which she lost her house to him. The alleged victim filed a civil suit against the criminal defendant and Whitney National Bank. The case is filed in the 24th circuit court of Jefferson Parish Louisiana. Well Whitney did a full discovery. The victim is order to provide a list of fraudulent charges. Well the list has none of the original charges that where used in the criminal indictment. Matter a fact the discovery show the checks that he claimed where fraud in the criminal case as being authorized by himself. The alleged victim and his CFO even admit in court transcripts they are authorized checks paid to defendant. Also the discovery show the victim in his email to defendant. " Please attach a copy of my signature to this document" Which she would all the time as part of her job. The civil case is dismissed by Summery Judgement and the victim appeal was denied by the Louisiana appeals court. So my question is this. The victim made false statements in the criminal case i believe that can be proven. The defendant give up her right to appeal. Is it possible to go after the victim in civil court for Defamation and slander. Do to him providing false statements to both the FBI and criminal court? I understand on the criminal side we could file Heabus Corpus. But we cant find an attorney willing to get involved for under 100K. She mother making 50k a year and we just dont have that kind of money. Plus her savings and home has already been taken by the alleged victim. I was thinking a civil case would cost much less plus if the defendant where to lose she has nothing left to take. I have copies of all the discovery from the civil case. The criminal case has mostly been sealed. My relation to this case is as followed.. I own a Information Technology company and the victim was a client of mine from 2009 to 2013. I handle all servers and Files etc.. I have no confidentiality agreement with alleged victim. Thank You Jonathan
  12. My mom and sister (handicap) were kicked out of the house 8 years ago by my dad. My mom is still under the house deed. My dad left in July 2008 but then returned a week later to tell my mom to get out including my little sister. The reason she left was because she was afraid of him and what had just happened prior to him leaving the first time. My dad has had three heart attacks already and he has a nephew who thinks that after he passes away, he can take over the house. My mom wants to know if this is true? Or does she let my dad live in peace and then fight for her house afterward.
  13. I currently pay child support and am trying to determine whether I can file to have the child support requirements removed. My ex-wife and I divorced in Hays county in Texas. We have a daughter who is now 14 and has stated she wishes to remain with me in Houston. Her mother was originally living primarily in Louisiana since the divorce but has since sold her home and has been traveling with no home address. She is now looking at living in a tiny home, possibly here in Texas but I've not heard anything solid. My ex is, however, the primary conservator. My daughter is currently in 8th grade. During 4th and 6th grade her mother agreed to allow our daughter to stay with me for those school years. During those years she paid me back about 75% of the child support. Now we are midway through her 8th grade year. Her grades have consistently been higher even though the school district is rated higher with a tougher curriculum than back in Louisiana. She has been with me for over 6 months now. I've remarried and we moved to a larger home in order to guarantee entrance to better schools. She has her own room rather than sharing an 8x12 with her mother in a tiny home. I've not discussed my intent with her mother but have discussed my desire to have Dakota remain with me for the final four years of public school, which her mother has, at least informally, agreed to. I've met with an attorney about modifying custody but it was looking very expensive and frankly they were promoting an approach that seemed like it would end up causing a great deal of hostility. My ex may have access to funds well in excess of my own so I'm not interested in getting into a massive legal fight, but the impression I get is that I would probably have a reasonable chance of reversing primary conservatorship and child custody along with it. I'd like some opinions on the custody aspect as well as putting a halt to the child custody payments. Thanks in advance, and if you have any questions I'll try to answer as best I can.
  14. My Uncle (Joe) recently passed of Cancer (Nov.5,2015), he was a retired Veteran living in Seguin,TX. My Mother (his sister,Zelda), was his only living relative, and lives near Houston,TX. My step cousin (no blood relationship) has been making false claims and taking his property since his passing. This includes his truck and several guns. She has admitted to doing so to the funeral director, and he told her she cannot do this. She has made false claims that my uncle had a son, and also that a will just turned up naming her father(Dean) as benificiary. The acting Administrator was reccomended to us by the Funeral Director, and rarely returns calls or keeps us up to date...he wont even say if he will take the case as Probate Attorney. My mother has limited income and no savings and is losing much sleep over this. She simply wants to grieve for her brother. I feel that her health is at risk, and I cannot help financially as I have disabling health problems. I am wondering what to do about this Administrator and also if it is in anybodys best interest to file some kind of charges against my step cousin for making this situation worse...she just wants a piece of the small pie my uncle left behind. Please forgive my spelling, and Thank You for any response.
  15. I am 64 years old and on public housing. In 2013 I decided to move into these brand new Senior Apts. I moved in and the apt above me stayed empty until for about 4 months after I had leased mine. An older gentleman 76 moved in by the name of Gerald I later found out his name and age. About a month into him living here I noticed to men coming and going from his apartment. They would leave for work and come home after work. I noticed one of them parked his car in the parking area and it had a our apt parking sticker on it. Everyone who lives here is provided a parking sticker to identify who is a tenant and who isn't are at least that is what I thought. Visitors have a certain area to park in. Then at night they must park outside the gate area. One day I didn't see Gerald and didn't see him for awhile but there was noise coming from his apt. Loud noise like someone was building something. Bangs and clangs it was awful. So at that time I went to the manager of the apts and told her about the noise and that I had not seen my neighbor Gerald. I told her it sounded like they were coming in though the ceiling and sometimes they were loud at night. Sounded like a bunch of people in the apt. Walking and stomping. She told me that Gerald was in the Hospital and it was probably his son's that have come to clean for him and put up a hospital bed that Gerald was having some kind of surgery. I was not happy with that answer and did not want to start any trouble so I didn't mention the two men coming and going and seeing one of their vehicles all the time night and day. Okay a couple of more months went by the noise was terrible. Gerald had by now got out of the hospital. It was the constant in and out slaming their apt door the foot steps back and forth across the floor and they were loud. Like they were stomping when they walk. Heavy footsteps. One Saturday night the noise was loud music sounding like dancing and that had gone own all day. So the next morning I went to the office again I complained to Maria about the noise and how loud it was the night before. I told her it sounded like a party going on. She did not say anything as I recall and so I went back to my apt thinking she just blew me off and didn't take me very seriously. That night around 9 pm I go out to check my mail and there is a letter on my door it is from Gerald's son Joe. He told me that I was imaging things that there was no party no people and they were not having a parade I guess he thru that in to be smart. I was upset it said some other things so I thought well Maria must of said something to them. So months went on the noise continued the two men continued to live there. One day Gerald came and knocked on my door and ask if I would help him with a rent money order. At that time I found out he was on housing like I was. The same government housing as I was in fact we had the same office. So then I knew he was not supposed to have anyone living with him. That is one of the restrictions of housing. But I did not say anything but knew that would be my leg to stand on. They should not be there anyway. I cannot remember if I mentioned to the apt mgr that I knew Gerald was on housing are not. The noise continued and i put up with it. Now I know your going to have noise when someone lives above you. I have lived in apts most all my life. But this noise was above and beyond. What it was I found out is people lots of visitors. When you are in a one bedroom with wood floors and there are at any one time 5 or 6 people your going to have some noise. It is like they didn't care that someone was living underneath them. So then I didn't see one of the brothers anymore I would see him but this time he was just visiting because I would not see him like I did. Now all this time has passed and we are into the begining of 2015 my timeline is missing time I am just trying to summarize all of this. The noise has continued all this time but this is what really got me upset. I started seeing a woman with a little boy I found out later he is 3 years old. Now keep in mind this is a senior over 55 project. I started seeing her all the time. I would see them go in but not come out. Then the little boy you could hear him running back and forth all day across the floor and hear him I guess he was jumping off the bed onto the floor. I complained a couple of times the noise would be quiet for about a month and then it would begin again. One morning around 6am and I was bothered by the noise all the night before I don't think the little boy stopped running back and forth until about midnight it finally got quiet. Oh by the way since the mgr didn't do anything about the noise I had sent emails to the management company too and that is when finally the noise would die down and pick up again. Only when I sent emails to them. Anyway about 6am the next morning I heard the loudest boom shook my whole apt. I was worried that Gerald may have fallen. So I went up stairs this is my second time going up there about the noise by now through the year of me complaining to everyone. The lady came to the door in her gown with the little boy in arm. I told her I thought Gerald had fallen. She said no it was her little boy playing like what is your problem lady he is just playing. I didn't say anything as I walked away I told her he woke me up. She just slammed the door. Now I know she was living there. So that day I went to the office again and told the mgr what had happened. All of her reasons for them being there is that they are watching Gerald. So I went back to my apt and sent an email to the management company. I told them about the men living there now the woman living there I told them I knew Gerald was on housing and about the nasty note the son had left on my door. The next day she came to my door with a letter she had typed up. She handed it to me and walk off. It said something like this. Ms ??? I am well aware of the goings on in this apt complex. I know who lives here and who does not live here. She went on to say she takes this very seriously. Those were her exact words. She takes the people who live on the project very seriously. She did not really specify if she new the son and his girlfriend were staying there she sorta left it open. So at that point I just gave up and just put up with the noise for the next 7 or 8 months and this brings me today Jan 2016. The other day they had a bunch of people going and coming all day to Gerald's apt. Then that night they had all of their windows open and you could see in and I and my neighbors counted around 5 people up there all standing around. That morning around 3 am like I said they were still loud music people walking around this is another thing when they would stay up late at night it was quiet and my dog would bark at the sounds coming from their apt. It would wake me up all the time through the night. The dog woke me up barking at them that morning. I had it. I told my daughter I wish I knew Gerald's last name I would see if housing could help me. She told me get the licence plates number off the sons car and it will tell you the son's name and Gerald's should have the last name. I have a friend who looked it up for me. Oh my goodness the son who's name is Joe ? has his car registered to this address all this time the manager has been telling me he does not live here. All these two years he has lived here she told me that. Now I find out his car is registered here. Then my friend looks up Joes' criminal Joe has around 7 felonies ranging from being in prison for 7 years, organized crime, burglary of a habitat, Theft from govervnment through a finiancial inst. and others two dwi's a no drivers license as of 2014. I sent all of this to the management company. For two years I have suffered with the noise the stares the intemidations the laughing at me as they went by. I am 64 like I said and have a mental disability in fact I am on SSD for it. For the last two days there has been no sound from Gerald's apt I mean noise it is so quiet feels like I am in heaven after all of what I have been through. They are there I can here them walking and I saw Gerald walking with his dog with his walker. My question is now do they have to make the son and girlfriend move out? Because they are still up there. I wonder what I can expect to happen.? I did not want to ask the mgr she has intimidated me already several times. I feel like they knew I had something wrong with me and thought I did not matter. Is there anything I can do to get any justice for my self for the two years of hell I had to put up with from them and the mgr. What if anything are my choices and what should the apts do about these people.? Thank you so much I am so sorry this is so long but I want to make sure you understand the jest of my problem. If these elderly people new what I know about the son they would have a fit. We think we are all safe here. It is a gated comunity and very expensive. Seniors are moving here because they advertise our safety. A lot of us are very vunoralble some are on scooters some wheel chairs some on walkers and there is a ex con with felonies living here with out our knowledge. I could of been hurt and didn't even know who I was dealing with. If he is here who else is.? The mgr doesn't take the property seriously does not look like. All I can think of is she must be friends with Gerald are a family member to let them get away with all of this with out anything being done. thank you for any advice or comments you can provide for me. I don't have but one sister in my family and few friends who don't know my legal rights.
  16. I live in Texas. My sister in law was recently incarcerated (January 2016). Her 2 children live with me since October 2015. My question is I currently do not have anything stating I have power of attorney or anything of the sorts for them. What is the best course of action to take on this, whether is be obtaining a power of attorney for the children or going thru CPS to get something for the children?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated... Thank you,
  17. In 2005, my father co-signed my private loan for 1L year of law school and he is now in assisted living without control over his money. My father is now 75, disabled physically and has a dementia diagnosis. Navient continues to send him computer generated letters, even after the account was brought up to date recently. They also call him when I am less than five days late. (They have a long history of calling him without calling me first.) He is probably not currently permitted to enter into any legal agreements due to his disability. He gets very emotionally upset each time Navient harasses him. Can he be released as cosigner due to his permanent disabilities? Can another person be named cosigner? He cannot wait 12 months to be released.
  18. Liz and her son were stopped outside of Abilene Tx. Safety violation on the car she had to buy because her truck and belongs were stolen. Her son did have heroin with him, she was unaware. Nothing mattered to the police or the court. She was charged the same. She took a probation plea after three months because it was better than staying in jail for a year before a trial (Speedy trial? right). Since she has worked low paying jobs, spent tiime in the hospital, had surgeries, finally found out she was diabetic. It's been almost 3 years. She is still dealing with diabetes and now a new disease Cushings syndrome. She should qualify for early release from probation but no one will help, legally. I pay her bills to help her survive this travesty. She needs someone to help her and little or no cost. She has other legal recourse against her court appointed lawyer. What to do? Thanks, Dennis.
  19. Background Infill Development was incorporated into our City Code by Ordinance in 2010 for the purpose of allowing residential structures to be constructed on lots compatible with the neighborhood which otherwise would be considered non-conforming under the current zoning requirements. Narrative Situated within 150' of my residence were in the not to distance past 4 vacant lots; however by revision are now 10 platted lots. While these revised plats were submitted to and approved by the City before 2010, a developer recently purchased these lots and obtained residential construction permits on these lots last Wednesday, By Friday, four lots were graded and foundation work will probably start in the morning. The current zoning requirement for lots in this area as a SF-3 zone requires: minimum lot size:10,0000 sq. ft., minimum lot width: 80 ft. minimum lot depth: 100 ft.. 9 of the vacant lots 1 vacant lot lot size 4,285 sq. ft lot size 6,100 sq. ft. lot width 45 ft. lot width 50 ft. lot depth 95 ft. lot depth 122 ft. The previous zoning requirement for lots in this area prior to the current zoning code required minimum lot size: 6,000 sq. ft., minimum lot width: 60 ft. minimum lot depth: 100 ft.. Issue Upon viewing the paperwork submitted for these permits, the developer described the work to be performed as 'Infill development' in his submission to the City. However, the City Ordinance requires properties to have either been initially platted or transferred by metes and bounds before 1980 in order for a property to qualify as an infill development. While I have my opinion that the 1980 deed or plat should cite the same legal description given for the current lot in order to qualify, I look forward to hearng your opinion on this matter. Thank you in advance for your time in reviewing this inquiry and for any responses you may provide.

  21. I bought a lake home and there is a fenced vacant lot with the front open next to me that we have to mow and maintain since July of this year. The HOA is disspelled and no one owns the lot now, it was an old boat lauch. I called the Appraisal district and they have the HOA listed but it is gone and no longer in existance for 20 years. The property taxes have not been paid for over 20 years on the lot. There is people going on the lot at night to sell and buy drugs and there is a nuisance of loud music as well because it backs up to the lake. How do I get help on taking it over so we can get some sleep at night and keep my dog from barking at all hours of the night? The Attorneys for the County, City and School has not filed any lawsuites for the back taxes owned. Help! How can I take it over and make it private and stop all the drug deals at night. Any advice plz....
  22. Hi, I live in an apartment that was recently sold and the new owners have a whole host of "improvements" in store for the community. One improvement is the changing of the porch rails/fence from wood to metal. My satellite dish is secured to the wooden column at the intersection of both sides of my porch. Some time during the installation of the metal grids, the workers knocked into my satellite dish causing it to lose the signal. I was without satellite for a week until someone could come out and realign it. These same improvements also put nails through my wall and left me without air conditioning for a week in the Texas summer, neither of which I sought compensation for, but this time I'm paying for a service that I can't use because they messed up. Do I have a right to ask that the cost for a week of unusable service be deducted from my rent? Thanks.
  23. My father recently lost his wife in Nov 2015. We reside in San Antonio, Tx. During the course of their 28 yr marriage, his wife inherited her fathers property. In 2010 a will was created to leave the house to my father. It was then updated in 2012 to leave it to her biological daughter, and my father could still be allowed to reside in the home until his passing. After my Dads wife passed on, a will has now surfaced stating that she updated it while hospitalized in 2014, to have the home left to her sister. For the last 3 years my sister, the deceased's step daughter, was hired as her caregiver. My Dads wife had a bag with all docs necessary if she were to pass to handle her estate which included the before mentioned will for 2010 and 2012. We knew she was sick and there was potential that she had a high risk of a short life expectancy, so she made it clear that those docs are what would be needed when the time comes. Of course when she passed, as mentioned before, the "new will" was then presented to show that the home was not left to her daughter OR my father. Instead it was put it the name of her sister. We believe that the sister got my fathers wife to sign a new will while being heavily medicated during one of her last hospital stays. That will, when compared with previous document signatures doesn't seem to match up. We contacted the notary (who is a family member thru marriage of the sister) to ask about details regarding the updated will, she seemed very nervous and stated she couldn't help us. When my father and her daughter went to a lawyer to start the probate process, the lawyer pulled up the new will. The date filed was 2 days after her passing (don't know if that has any importance to the situation). The sister has now served my father an eviction notice only a month after his wife's passing stating that he is delinquent 4 months on rent. My father and his wife have never paid rent for that home to the sister or anyone. This home, as mentioned, was inherited by his wife. The only obligation they had were taxes and such. Can I get some direction on what we can do to help my father and his wife's biological daughter with this situation?
  24. I am just wondering if anyone knows how to calculate the cost of the childs portion of Medical Insurance premiums. I have all the monthly payroll deduction amounts for each plan. We are on the Employee and Family plan. But there is Employee only, Employee and child, Employee and Spouse, then ours Employee and family. Just wondering which amount I would deduct from the Employee and Family to come up with the Child Only Premium for reimbursement for Medical Support. There is a large difference in amount when doing it differently, and I am required to provide the amount for a child support review. Any help is appreciated.
  25. For background, my daughter's father passed away several months ago. State of Texas. He was never married and had 3 children. Two of the children are adults and my daughter is a minor. One of the adult children has already begun the probate process and is being appointed administrator. The decedent passed without leaving a will. He owned a home, several cars, and I know that he had bank accounts and investments and even some life insurance. The probate seems to be going very slowly. I don't even see that the Administratior of the estate has even been approved yet. From a very reliable, inside source, I know that one of his sister's was on his bank account, and I know that large sums of funds have been deducted from this account and given to 3 of the sisters. My understanding that each sister was given 10,000.00 each. Shouldn't this account be part of the estate? I am trying to stay clear of this whole situation , and have had no contact with the other siblings or the family, but I just feel that something wrong is going on here. It's my understanding that the Mother has also received his retirement account. I am guessing that he left her as beneficiary,. Just seems to me that a lot of things are going on, out side of these probate proceedings. My understanding is, that while in the probate process you have to get an inventory of the deceased things. Would that inventory be based on date of death? If the accounts have been liquidated or diminished, would the administrator have the right to request that funds be returned? I just see that things may be about to get real ugly.
