QUESTIONS

  • I was a stay-at-home mom for the majority of my marriage. During that time I accrued some student loans. In our separation agreement we each agreed to pay half of that, and any other, debt. A lawyer I spoke with stated that I am eligible for alimony (we were married 9 years and I stayed home for 6 of them), but my spouse takes great exception to this. He believes that since I did not contribute, monetarily, I should not be entitled to alimony. What should my expectations be?
  • My mother recently passed away and her will states that everything is to be divided among my 2 sisters and I. She has a house with a loan on it, a vehicle that is paid for(that my oldest sister now has), property that my other sister and her husband say is now theirs and I have only small things. The house is to go to the three of us but I can't get any info from my older sisters about it. And now my nephew and his girlfriend and son are living in the house and paying my older sister. What can I do ??
  • What are the laws regarding overtime pay? when is an employer exempt from paying overtime?
  • How can I defend myself professionally on a Summons that was delivered to me?It states on there I have within 20 days to defend myself. And its states that i pay for the filing fee. Do I have to pay it?
  • I am filing for divorce. I have four children. My 16 year old is pregnant. Do I have to pay child support for her, or is she considered medically emancipated?
  • I TOOK OUT A REVERSE MORTGAGE BEFORE MY WIFE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO BE ON IT. I CALLED TO HAVE HER ADDED ON AND THEY TOLD ME IT CAN NOT BE DONE. WE WERE TOLD IT COULD BE WHEN WE TOOK IT OUT. WHAT CAN I DO TO PROTECT MY WIFE AFTER I DIE?
  • Six months into a twelve month lease my landlord sold the property. Now the new landlord is telling me that I must sign a new lease. Although she is not raising our rent, other provisions of the new lease are objectionable to me. Must I sign this new lease to preserve my status as a legal tenant, or must the new landlord accept the terms of my original lease?
  • If I am a renter and get wind damage to my carport am I responsible for the repairs?
  • What is necessary to bring and/or fill out for a Parenting Conference with Conciliation Services ? Is there usually more than one conference? Is a child younger than the statutory age often interviewed?
  • My ex is supposed to pay court ordered child support and has not done so for a little over 19 months. Am I supposed to file paperwork to have it on the record, or does the state automatically know that he owes me back child support? I don't even know if he is working currently.
