    Renting Space

    I have a small cafe that closes in the afternoons and I am looking to rent it out in the evenings. Is there any license I need to rent my space? Also we do not serve alcohol so we do not have a liquor license, but will it be an issue if alcohol is brought in by the people renting for a night? Or do we need a license of some sort for that?
  2. We live on a gravel road with approximately 7 houses on the road and the road is about 3 miles long. My son stopped at the stop sign at the end of the road, however, one of the kids had thrown something out the window so his wife gets out to go retrieve it and he backs up to get her. A State Trooper sees him backing up and cites him with backing up on roadway. Its a gravel road, no traffic and no harm done. We have to stop on this road to retrieve mail from our mailbox, pull over for large tractors ect. This same officer has stopped him 3 times but this time he "searched for a reason" literally to give him a ticket. Can he fight this ticket??

    Medicaid Law and Real Estate

    I'm looking at purchasing a residential property. Looking around I'm finding a lot of people selling off their parent's home due to health problems...Most of these properties look really tempting like well kept up and nicely maintained, but I know there is more lurking here plus maybe POA. I do know the residence of someone who goes into nursing home on Medicaid has a lien put on it in most states. Only 'family' who owned the home lived with the elder as caregiver or personally disabled for a year before elder went to nursing care. I know most states basically own the former residences of elderly who went into nursing care on Medicaid... Okay, what do I need to know here as a buyer? If I purchase a house through a title company with title insurance, what is my liability here as a buyer? Could the house I purchased be seized from me by the state? Can another sibling of seller (different heir) try to claim ownership later? What happens when I only buy 1 year of title insurance and something happens later down the road on the Medicaid lien or a sibling arguing ownership? Would be helpful to know what happens with tax delinquency sales too on houses of nursing home residents if you don't mind...
  5. this is my sons case and not only as his mother this case hasn't been right from the beginning ive got statements and police reports and reading and listening and doing a little research on what little I know I really need some advice on how to help my son and this case against him I don't understand how the police are able to get away with a lot they do or say
  6. Scenario: employee was accused of using email services to download other employees emails. Employee denies downloading any data but admitted to using system to find only emails that pertained to themselves. No evidence was not provided during termination. Employee's manager and VP have done the same thing to executives and their subordinates in scenario where subordinates reported issues with the manager and VP. Manager and VP also have requested employee complete the accused task in the past. Are there any ways to claim discrimination since that manager and VP are still employed? Are there any ways to claim anything else?
  7. It appears winning as a Pro Se litigant in the Federal Western District Court of Oklahoma can garner resentment in the legal community for future problems or actions. A case won against a prominent law firm as a ProSe litigant in 2016 may have retaliatory consequences due to self perceived embarrisment and social prejudices from the losing firm. As a result, the legal firm and it's allies passive aggressively attempt to save face by causing hardship and abusing the system of justice for retribution. What do you belive can be done to shed light and prevent corrupt practices?

    post-conviction relief 2yrs later

    I was convicted for Burglary II while on probation for Dom A&B-AFC, which i got while on probation for original Dom A&B. Ill start at the beginning because this is a rabbit hole but I want my life back. I was arrested for PI when the driver of car was pulled over and I complied to the officer directing me to exit the vehicle but this was dismissed at arraignment. In between court and my release from the drunk tank- I went to a relatives house. This person took me to court the next afternoon and back to their house. This person has been abusive towards me my whole life and that evening another scuffle ensued. This was the first time I returned a hit and only because I was fading out. I hit them once to get out from underneath them and left. After a while I am arrested for the 2nd time in 24hrs for BurgII and DomA&B. The relative said I just barged in and starting attacking them- I sat in county for 7mo while the DA had it out for me. My public defender told me to get a street attorney bc they wouldn't work out a plea but in the end my case fell on a day that person was out of court and i took the plea offered. While on this probation, the alleged victim starts another scuffle with me at their house (ugh) but their spouse intervened, kicking them out of dwelling entirely. I was getting divorced and had to move in with them by necessity. FFWD- now the spouse wants me to use my body for payment of rent and i declined. This person blocked me from leaving and I feloniously assaulted them (backstory only relevant to myself unfortunately). I called for the cops when that person went to the room with all the guns. Now being the retired chief in a rural area has its perks because guess who goes to jail even though i am covered in bite marks from the other party. Recap: I'm on probation and in the exact same location as the first fight, in a small town, while divorcing from a known addict (I had begun recovery already and was clean for 3mo when the AFC occurred). When i am locked up for the next month (until Alleged victim bonds me out) my ex gains custody of our children and I have fought tooth and nail to get them out of that abusive house since then. I got a job and within the first week had cops at my door with a felony warrant for me. A coworker had medication missing- I'm on film getting in her locker AFTER SHE GAVE ME PERMISSION and removing otc analgesic. The public defender came to court one time and that was to tell me to take the plea because the judge was sending me up river if i didn't. I plead out on a Burglary II charge- suspended. I took a hair follicle test the week after arrested to prove my innocence but my attorney didn't even contact the DA until the day of non jury trial. I have the affidavit from the alleged victim stating I had permission to enter the locker that day. I also have the statement of the indv who removed the medication at the heart of all this along with audio and text messages. I am a felon for doing what i had permission to do and it's getting close to the 2yr mark. Someone please help me. I have a few babies that deserve a shot in this life but I can't make the neccessary headway being a felon. This has damaged my child custody battle and they just want to come home. I have had to change my career path since the first fight took my nursing license. (I also have that statement of recantation but am unwilling to use it) There has to be someone to intervene on or something. This is not just or fair.
  9. Can a victim in a domestic case where protected order has been vacated be charged with a crime if the defendant sentencing included a no contact order by judge
  10. I hired a friend to drive me around one friday because i got a notice in mail stating my license was suspended. that eve we got pulled over and he went to jail because his license was also suspended.

    Lost my home

    My grandfather owned a home **** ***** Rd. Oklahoma City, OK ******. He passed away in 2003 or 2004. My mother and I (her only child) had lived with him since 1992. He left the house to my mother and me in his will. After him passing, it was too hard for her to reside there. She in return, gave the house to me in 2005. My Uncle R. H. and his spouse K.H. took advantage of me. I was unknowledgeable of what was going on. I was 19 and pregnant and the house did need work. My uncle and his wife said that they would give me $700.00 to move into an apartment so the baby and I had a place to stay while they fixed up the house for me. In return, I could come back. They wrote a check to me. At the bottom it said payment for house. I was unaware until my bank statement came in the mail a month later that the check even said that. I tried to contact my uncle and aunt and they wouldn't talk to me. My uncle then took all his brothers and sisters (my aunts and uncles) to probate court and legally took over the house. My uncle is now deceased and his widow K.H. lives there in my childhood home. I am now 30 years old and would like to get the home back especially since my Uncle is deceased and his wife(widow) is there. Please help.

    Illegal Lockout

    My friend had given me permission to go to his apartment to check on it for him while he was in jail. I had his keys. On my way up to his apt the on-site property manager stopped me, ask who I was going to see. I told her and she said I can't allow you to go up there. She said that he was in jail. I tried again a week later. Was stopped again. I told her I had his keys and his permission. She said I had to have his written, notorized permission before she would let me in. I got that from him. When I got back to the apt I went ahead and went up to his apt. His keys would not work. I went to find the property manager. She took the letter from me, did not ID me. She escorted me up to his apt and told me Rent-a-Center had come and got their sofa he had been renting from them. She allowed them into the apt without notifying my friend. I noticed the door jam had been tampered with. There were no indication of anything damaged, broke or missing. The landlord left no notice on the door about entering the apt. He was on a month to month lease. This happened like the 25 Aug 16. She told me his apt needed to be completely cleaned out by 02 Sept 16 when his lease expired. Nothing in writing. She allowed me access a couple of days later when I came back to remove his belongings giving me the key to let myself in. He feels that they illegally locked him or his representative out of is apt. His rent was paid. They we're supposed to come in to replace or repair his A/C unit prior to him going to jail. The unit was not in the window when I went into the apt. What recourse can he take? Does he have a Illegal lock out case?

    Fathers Estate

    My dad passed on May 25, 2016 in OK and his 4th wife didn't bother to tell his 3 adult children of his passing or funeral arrangements. I want to find out if he left a will, how can I do this? Also, I was a minor when I became disabled and draw SS from my dad, am I entitled to any of his pension or estate if no will was left? He never did a thing for his children, being forced to pay child support by Indiana courts, and I don't feel his 4th wife should get everything. The children he helped create should get a part. Also, would I have to retain a lawyer in ok?
  17. I was contracted as a paid intern for a company back in Aug 2015 I worked Aug, Sept, Oct, and Nov 2015. Agreement signed by both parties promised $100/week. I sent an e-mail in December 2015, requesting the status of my payment, to no response. I e-mailed again in January and in early February he responded stating that I would be paid "Sometime soon." In early March, I e-mailed again asking for updates, waited 14 days without receiving any word. I e-mailed him again, and received the same response that I would be paid "Sometime soon." In May I e-mailed him asking for an update and did not receive any word for 14 days, at which point I e-mailed him again. He responded stating that he had already told me I would receive compensation "sometime soon." May 18, 2016 I formally told him that I would like my amount to be paid in full by June 20th, or I would have to escalate the matter. He replied asking is a payment plan was an available option, I said no. He responded June 11, 2016 stating that he would like to do a payment plan. At this point, I am prepared to take him to small claims. I would like to know exactly what laws he has broken by refusing to pay me in over 8 months since the end of my contract. As I am a resident of Michigan, and both he and the business are in Oklahoma, I am unsure of what law he may be breaking, and am having trouble finding them. Thank you in advanced. I am much appreciative of you reviewing this situation.
  18. I will begin this post with the background of the situation. My wife, step-daughter and I were living in a tent on a 5 acre plot we were purchasing. The winter of 2014-2015 was approaching and it was getting very cold. Out of concern for our safety of getting through the winter, a friend we had met offered us the use of his trailer over winter. He charged us $500 rent and, as we had no way of bringing it onto the property, he moved it there with his pickup truck and set it up. He left his card with us in case we needed to contact him for anything. This person, I will refer to as D. Before he left, he gave us a little bit of food he had left over including deer sausage which we grilled. He informed us he'll come back after winter to pick up the trailer. That winter was a harsh one with very low temperatures, lots of ice and snow and heavy winds. The winds were so heavy it had partially destroyed some of the wind breaks and weather protection barriers that were built around the site to protect all of our belongings. We did not see D again until after winter when the police showed up at our door along with D. My family and I were being accused of taking the trailer from D without his permission. I explained to the officer that D brought the trailer on to our property and we paid him $500. I even informed the officer that D had given us his card in case we needed to contact him and gave the officer the card D had given us. After all of this, the officer told us that the best way to settle this matter is move our belonging out of the trailer and D will go ahead and pick it up. We were given three days to move all of our stuff and D will come and get his trailer and this dispute would be done and over with. Over the three days, we moved all of our stuff out and D came and picked up his trailer and left with it. We were instructed by the officer that this matter was settled and done with and it'll be best to just break off our friendship with D. And so, this dispute between D and us was settled, it was put behind us, or so we thought. And now, several days ago, my wife, step-daughter and I were arrested and charged with Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property - 21 O.S. §1713, a - which was filed on February 26, 2016. Every one of us are shocked and don't understand what is going on. We were told that since this all boiled down to one persons word against another's and that D came and picked up his trailer the matter was settled and forgotten. It's all so confusing as when D let us use the trailer and when he came to get it, it was given back with no problem. How can they accuse us and charge us with a crime when none was even committed and the matter was settled already between us and D? What are we supposed to do about these false charges against us? Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Bad Neighbor

    I bought a house 21 years ago and quickly found out why it sold so cheap, it was because of the bad neighbor next door. She is now in her mid 60s but is a total bully, she is so loud and obnoxious you can hear her talk several yards away. I have had so much trouble I don't know where to begin. Parking her car on my yard, throwing trash in my yard, I put up a 8 ft fence 20 years ago and she immediately dug on her side and busted up the concrete that the posts were sitting in. She is mentally ill and is out of control. Right now she threw an old end table in my yard and refused to throw it away, I sent it back on her driveway, she just throws it back in my yard. Now I know better than calling the police as they have been out to visit so many times... she calls and I call as well... the police do nothing they just say its is a civil matter between neighbors that don't get along... she thinks that I am doing something to kill the grass in her yard so she keeps throwing grass killer on my yard and on my shrubs. I cant walk outside and even mow my lawn without her coming outside and calling me a fag or saying she has me on video tape doing something to her property. I would move if I had the money to . I put up video cameras but that was in Jan 2007 so the system is old and needs replacing I did it because she thought that I broke out the back window of her car and at night she threw oil based paint on the front of my house.. that was what caused me to put up the cameras...which cost over 3,000 I had lots of video of her drunk but for the most part the cameras kept her in line...now I haven't been living at the property for the last 2 years, I have developed mental health depression after being diagnosed with cancer and stay at my moms house and go over to my house to get the mail and do yard work. I know that the only way this situation I ever going to be resolved is if I sell the house but I am afraid she will come in and look at the inside of my house just to be nosey ...then she will see that I only have an alarm sign in my yard and no real alarm, So I feel like the only way I can sell it to sell it dirt cheap to a house flipper. The neighbor is fixated on me and tells every one she runs into about her bad neighbor, if there is a new renter in the neighborhood she immediately goes to them and tells them about me, I am a very quiet person and don't have people over at my house. Right now she has a plastic tarp strung across her driveway attached to her house and to my fence, because she doesn't want it to rain on her car...she has a garage that she used to put her car in... but it seems she is doing anything to bother me.. I have tried to file a restraining order against her when the paint was thrown on my house that didn't work, she has tried to take me to small claims court and they dropped the case when I got my home insurance involved....I forgot to add that last summer two of the video cameras were stolen off the front of my house... one that pointed at her front yard.. I really have gotten to my wits end on trying to deal with this person. This neighbor was in a auto accident in San Francisco in about 1990 and collected $450K from a doctor that kept her from being paralyzed and she has never had any kind of job other than cleaning houses... she doesn't work now and so she seems to have all her time focused on me... she always has people over at her house, she would move in people all the time ....usually her nieces or other young people so I am constantly out numbered as she had all these people turned against me. She has adopted a boy and the boys mother lived ovet there for years as well she has been arrested for thieft and burglary, and heroin possession and for assault with a deadly weapon.. and she harasses me as well.... I know that I am rambling but there is 21 years of bad stuff that has happended.... just wondering if anyone knows how to handle a neighbor like this
  20. I purchased a rural 5 acre property and built a home two years ago (April 2014). We did sign to an HOA that required dues to up keep neighborhood roads but we live on a main mile line with no access to any of the interior homes and roads. In fact we can only see the tip of the roofs of 3-4 of the interior homes from our house. If you drove by you would assume our 5 acres did not belong to the neighborhood of 2 1/2 acre tract behind us. There is no park, pool, gate, lighting, or entrance for up keep. Here are the other hard facts The HOA formed in 2005 We moved in April 2013 The HOA paperwork presented to us at closing specifically stated the dues were specifically for road maintenance only. We purchased the home with the understanding of the HOA to be a defunct organization from many of the neighbors. There have been no meetings since before 2013... prior to this I can not determine but hear they were not yearly and very sporatic. Our first notification of who the HOA president even was happened about 3 weeks ago in a letter stating I, along with others, owed two years back dues or property liens will be filed. 5-6 other property owners out of 27 do not live in the internal addition as well. many new owners in the interior of the addition received the same notice. Dues have not been paid by the most residence and the dues have not been sought after since at least 2013... until now that is. No road maintenance has occurred since 2013 and none before 2013 from my understanding. The HOA has NO RECORDS AT ALL dating before 2013 as to who has paid in and who has not. Questions... What is the probability of being released from HOA dues as we have no benefit from them? With the HOA being defunct in its operations since before at least 2013 would that be a breech of contract and what legal action would I have to terminate it? What is the best course of action to take to request being released? What is the ramifications of a property lien when we are pretty much set on retiring here long after the HOA runs its course?

    Devorce and Joint Tenancy

    Unfortunately, our divorce with Joint Tenancy of our house. After divorce I stay in this house. My ex lives in apartment and he doesn't want to live in house. I understand that we have equal rights for house. May I rent part of this house?? and what are my rights in this situation. Please help! Many -many thanks.
  23. Claim: I purchased a brand new home through well-known home builder company. The house was complete in June and I closed Mid-June. I have lived by myself since closing and I never had the need to go to my two guest bedrooms. It wasn’t until Thanksgiving until I had family stay in both bedrooms. After the family left my mother said there was a damp spot in one of the guest bedroom’s closet. I thought one of the children over the weekend spilled juice or water. I put a towel over it and went on with my business. About a week goes by until I go back into the room to get the towel and the damp spot was still there. That is when I called my home builder. They sent out their people to test if there were any plumbing leaks and there were no plumbing issues. Then they sent a water/moisture expert. He pulled back my carpet and placed dehydrators in that room and returned and picked the dehydrator machines up after a couple days. Now another week goes by and I still received no calls from my home builder or the water/moisture expert. I call my home builder to complain on why my problem has not been resolved and if/when somebody is going to replace the carpet. My home builder told me they wouldn’t be able to send somebody until the first week of January. And I was tired and stressed out from the problem and I agreed to wait until the first week of January. It wasn’t until Christmas when we had another rain storm and water leak became worse. Initially, the water damage was isolated to only one room. Now the water damage has moved to all three bedrooms, including my master bedroom where I sleep. I closed on this house back in June, so this problem has been here since the first day but I would have never noticed it until I needed to go to my guest bedrooms, which I did after Thanksgiving and that is when I initially discovered the issue and called my home builder. The whole reason why I bought a brand new home was to avoid any of these issues, especially water issues. The unnecessary stress this has caused me, the potential health issues, I’ve had to leave work multiple times just to be at my house for them to run tests and troubleshoot and multiple other frustrations. At first I was happy to deal with my home builder to resolve this issue and continue on with my life and live in this house after they fix the problem. Now, I completely want out of this mortgage. I believe my home builder has broken their contract. I am hoping there is some way I can get out from this mortgage. Please let me know if I have a claim. Thank you.
