QUESTIONS

  • My father passed and my sister had a beneficiary deed that made the home hers. I've lived there for 7 years and provided care for my father during that time. She is now trying to evict me and my father's only been gone for two weeks. She's entering the house and removing property and even drilled out the lock to my bedroom door. She's installed cameras to watch the house from outside. What are my rights?
  • I have submitted notice on 7/28/17 that we would be non-renewing our lease and it would end, as stated in our lease, on 9/12/17. This provided excess of 30 days notice as required. They did not respond until today, 8/7/17. When we moved in, our rent for Sept '16 (9/13 - 9/30) was prorated. In our notice, I stated we would be paying the pro-rated amount of our rent due on 9/1 for the 12 days we will be occupying the apartment. The management let us know that our lease will end on 9/12, but we are responsible for the entire month of Sept. rent. I am unsure. I have communicated with them by e-mail because I wanted to document it.
  • When I was 16 my boyfriend was 21. We had sex and I also gave him oral. I know in Oklahoma legal age to consent is 16 but I've heard that for oral and anal at the age of 16 I couldn't consent to that. Can my boyfriend get in trouble for me giving him oral
  • I was never married to the girl who is having our child and the mother has cut off all lines of communication with me so I was wondering if her decision to not allow me to be there for her, financially or morally, will affect my future rights as a patent?
  • I want to know what disposition report means
  • My fiancĂ© and I are in a month to month lease. On 8-26-16 a guest of ours that was visiting the state was accused of crime on property. The next day the landlord stated we had to leave that day or we could pay for next month's rent and be evicted afterwards. They stated a eviction would show on credit affectively making it nearly impossible to rent anywhere else. On the rental agreement there was no notice stating we needed to advise them if we had a guest staying longer than 14 days and he has not been formally charged. What options do I have.
  • my ex and my child live in germany, we have a german visitation agreement but she cut all contact and I didn`t see my child for a long time. What can I do?
  • What is the income eligibility?
  • We rented a home 2 years ago with a 1 year lease. The landlord has not had us sign a new lease. The old lease specifically states that the agreement begins on 8/5/10 and ends 7/31/11. What rights and responsibilities do I have?
  • I was convicted in AZ for "ASSAULT INTENT/ RECKLESS/ INJURE" in 2009. I understand that I cannot get this expunged if it involves the infliction of serious physical injury, but how or who determines what is a "serious physical injury"? There was no serious physical injury but there was contact.
