QUESTIONS

  • I live on private property owned by family, there exists on the property one home and one occupied 5th wheel "home". Someone reported us and are facing possible eviction within two weeks and this would result in three of us becoming homeless, is there anything we can do?
  • My 34 year old son is in debt and lives under my roof in a room I provide. I help him financially by gifting him funds from time to time. I do not claim him as a dependent and his finances are segregated from mine. I did not cosign any loan. He has been served and I expect that the court will issue a judgment. My question is, do I have to do anything special to protect my and my wife's goods from execution. Legally, they are ours, but how do I proceed if the sheriff attempts to grab them? Can he?
  • i am currently pregnant by a man who is married, who denies that the child is his. he now lives in the state of california. He will not be present at the hospital to sign acknowledgement of paternity. what is the proper steps I need to take to prove he is the father? Is there anything I can do about him being legally marrried and getting another woman pregnant?
