QUESTIONS

  • I leased my home using a legit lease form accepted one months down for a security down. They stayed for 5 months, lived there for 2 months without paying rent before they dissapeared and trashed the home, we had to pay $2500.00 in repairs and I have not been able to re-rent the place still for 2 months. It was a 2 year signed lease. Will I have a chance to win if I take them to small claims court? I know where one of them work. Thanks Jim
  • My son's father and I were never married and we broke up before he turned 1. I have sole custody and he has visitation time which his parents use as he has zero interest in being a part of my son's life. My son is now 12. I have been married for over 6 years and my husband and son both want for him to adopt him. My son views my husband as his (only) dad. My ex is an alcoholic who recently picked up his 3rd DV charge against his current gf. If my ex is willing to terminate his parental rights so my husband can adopt my son, how do we cancel out our current agreement and terminate his rights?
