  • I was harassed and bullied for 8 years. My doctor put me on antidepresents. I was fired the end of January for no reason. What can I do. there must be a law permitting people in charge from saying terrible things about you and your family to other employees and to the public. Please I need someone to help me or to point me in the right direction. She has also denied my workman's comp. so I can't have my carpal tunnel surgery.
  • We did not find any results for 'I gave my landlord 2 months rent in advance. A few weeks later he told me i owed the electric bill so he took my money and put it on that. I specifically told him it was for two months rent. Plus i just found out he was double charging me on the electric every month. Now he is saying i owe him rent for this month, i dont feel i should have to pay it, i gave him 1800$ FOR RENT. Hes threatening to take me to court, can he evict me for this?'
  • I alerted maintenance a problem in my apartment which turned out to be a broken water heater under my floor. They are now forcing me to move to another apartment within 24 hours and will not pay for any moving costs. Is that legal?
  • Our divorce was granted 09/26/06. As part of the agreement, I was supposed to pay my husband $35,000 to buy him out of a rental house we co-own with my parents. He refuses to take the money and I am at a loss as to what to do. He now says he wants the house, but has done nothing to procure financing to buy out me and my parents. Do I go to court and petition them to enforce the court order or do I sue him for non-compliance? The property agreement was "not-merged" and I have been advised to sue. How do I do that?
  • Can a pendente lite for child support be obtained if parents were never married and are awaiting a child custody trial?
  • What is a disability under the ADA?
  • once the court granted joint legal custody does it ever expire? its been six years
  • My mother passed away. She does have a will and I was nominated as the executer and trustee. I am the sole beneficiary. She only has a bank account but when the account was setup nobody was on the account but her. no payable unpon death. What is required by the bank for me to access the account to begin paying for her expences? Her will did state that I shoud have immediate access without going through the courts.
  • I was divorced 05/19/16. Part of the settlement was I got the marital home (w/no mortgage). I allowed my ex to stay in the marital home and share household expenses. I now want to sell the house. Do I have to evict him? He homesteads another property and gets no mail at marital residence.
