QUESTIONS

  • My boyfriend is currently incarcerated on a child support warrant(held on a $10000 cash only bond). I'm trying to fill out a modification for him. He used to make $24per hour in the construction field.He lost his good paying job in Dec 2009. He has been in & out of jail for the CS ever since. Besides collecting Unemployement the only job he was able to get for a brief period was only paying him $11.00 an hour. My questions are 1)Should I use the $11 per hr or the Unemployment as income for calculating his support mod? & 2)How long can a judge make him sit in Jail? There's NO WAY we can pay it.

  • I went to a lawyer for my divorce. He quoted "about $1500.00, maybe a little more." Due to mistakes his people made the divorce took about 8 months. He is now billing me for over $10,000.00. There was no fighting between my former spouse and me, at all. He will not tell my why the cost is more than six times the original amount, and he is now adding interest of 18%.
  • I'm an owner/landlord of a single family home, which I rented to an individual with an option to purchase. He never exercised the option, and eventually defaulted on rent, and moved out. Problem is I recorded in the public record a document showing that he paid an amount toward the purchase of the house. I should not have done this because now I cannot refinance or sell the property due to a 'cloud on title. I contacted former renter to sort out issue, but he refuses to cooperate - leaving me stuck. What are my options ? Thx
