QUESTIONS

  • My ex husband and my self are going to court to modify our child support since our oldest child turned 18. My question is since we divorced he had 2 other childred after ours that he now pays support for. When we modify can he deduct that amount he pays for his second child support off his imcome when we file for modifaction?
  • Last year we fell behind on our home payments. We tried to work with the lender for months, Instead they set a foreclosure date. We only owe $265,000 plus the arrears on our home which is now appraising at $422k. We were forced to file Ch. 13 in order to stop the foreclosure and save our equity. My spouse now has a high income job offer out of state. We want to rent out our home instead of selling & dismiss the BK but still owe over $18k in arrears. With our bad credit due to the BK, what are our options for getting a loan to pay the arrears? Our home will rent for $2800 and our payment is 2k.
  • I have guardianship of my step children, can I deduct them from my income as children of other relationships I support in a child support case I have ongoing in a separate matter?
  • My common law husband and I build our life together for 14 years and had 3 children. We separated for a year. We got back together and a few months later he passes away. Can I validate marriage? His adult unemployed children gain access to our belongs. they barred me from everything. I have our minor children.
  • Do I have to run credit on everyone that turns in an application to rent my property? What are fair reasons to deny the application without running a background? I have an applicant threatenubg to file a complaint on a violation of the fair housing act, citing race as her reason. honestly, iā€™m not sure what race she even is but I denied her because she stated on her application that she filed for bankruptcy in 2010. What is fair in this instance? Are there printed guidelines for landlords to follow when accepting a renter?
  • I started Beauty School in Sept 07, I was 17 at the time.The school had me sign for the loan without a co-signer. My parents filled out the paper for the Pell Grant and wanted to pay so much monthly. The school said I had to have a Subsidized Stafford loan to get the Pell Grant.Am I responsible for the loan? Since I was told afterwards that it was not a legal binding contract due to my age and that neither one of my parents co-signed on it?
  • Is there any way to evict my 18 year old brother from my parents house?
  • If I lose rights to my daughter do I still have to pay child support if shes getting adopted by another father. Or do I have to continue the payments even after it's over?
  • My wife and I have been subject to badgering, intimidation, threatening and insulting language from the agent/park manager in the context of a home sale contract of our manufactured home. Would this type of behavior be considered some type of senior abuse, even though it is verbal but has an economic impact...I have some recordings too...
  • We have been evicted, the constable showed up yesterday at 9am with a locksmith to change locks, I thought we were given 24 hours to remove our belongings before they changed the locks. They left my dogs in the backyard and I was not even home. I went back to check on dogs, and constable was hiding with a tape recorder telling me I can't be there. Even to check on my dogs they left in the backyard?
