Q: 

My mother in law is 62 years old, lives in ohio, and has been married for 14 years. Her husband is verbally and emotionally abusive. He has all of the property, cars,and accounts in his name only. If she leaves or files for divorce, is she entitled to anything? His property and home was his before they married but he makes in the range of $10,000 - $15,000 a month. He doesn''t let her have any money and she now is cleaning apartments 1 day a week. Please answer as soon as possible as she is desperate for some knowledge about her rights. Thank you

A:  Understand that victims of abuse are often afraid to upset the apple cart and often eager to forgive. They learn to accept the abuse. You might want to recommend to your mother to consult with an attorney so that she understands her legal rights in the event she is able to get the courage to confront the situation or to leave. She needs to have this information. Perhaps you can go with her. Best of luck....

Q: 

Helloboth my husband and I have wills, but my brother in law does not. My mother in law just died intestate. my father in law is living, but NOT of sound mind or body, and my brother in law does not have a will but has power of attourney for his dad. how does he make a will?

A:  He cannot. To make a will the individual must have the necessary mental capacity. When your father-in-law dies, if he does not already have a will, he will die intestate. The estate will be equally divided among your father-in-law''s children. Mike....

Q: 

What was the law in New Jersey in 1978 for a married person that died intestate? a) if they had children, and b) if no children

A:  Generally, the law was that if there are no children everything goes to the surviving spouse. If no spouse then equally to the surviving next of kin. With children and a spouse the first $50,000 of the estate goes to the spouse and the balance goes 1/3 to the spouse and 2/3 to the children....

Q: 

What you think of the Arkansas law that allows people of any age to marry?

A:  Marriage does not imply consent to sexual activity; you can still be charged with rape if your wife is the victim. If some pedophile actually tried to get a marriage license to marry a child, they could almost certainly be arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit sexual assault, conspiracy to endanger a child, etc. The fact that a state senator wouldn''t understand this basic fact about the law just underlines the core problem here: Southerners elect idiots. Yes, some parents would do that for enough money. It is a law with good intentions that was transcribed into words incorrectly. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. A mistake in wording that I''m sure will be fixed soon. I think it was a...

Q: 

If your mother passed away leaving her brother and his common-law wife living in her house what legal rights does his common-law wife have after he too passes away?

A:  Common-law marriage is a legal form of marriage, and so his wife would have the same rights and entitlements as a more conventional wife. There may be some issue proving that (in fact) she qualifies as a common law wife - usually some demonstration that the two were together for the requisite period of time - but in most common-law marriage cases that''s not too difficult to do....

Q: 

My daughter in law now lives in arkansas with my son. Recently they have been receiving notices of bad checks being passed in TX with her name and drivers license but the accounts from the banks do not exist. It must be someone printing checks, forging her name, and passing them off with fake id. What can she do? How can they press charges on someone who has not been in TX for a year?

A:  Passing bad checks is a crime. Whoever passed these particular bad checks did so in Texas, so Texas is where he or she should be prosecuted. If the authorities believe your daughter did this, then they will press charges against her. That she now lives in another state doesn''t matter. Your daughter should get a lawyer in or near the city where charges have been filed against her....

Q: 

My sister in-law is living in AZ and she and her husband have separated due to him having several affairs. The husband does not want a formal divorce even though he has moved in with a girlfriend. The husband currently pays for a rental home for my sister in-law and their two children and provides her with $200 a month in spending money. She utilizes a vehicle that is registered in his name and paid for monthly by him to the bank. She has no employment and takes care of her two young children. They have no agreement otherwise and I fear he may one day stop all payment leaving her stuck in AZ. I flew her and the children to New York state to visit and escape her husband for a while.Should she obtain some sort of written separation agreement or is the current set up the best she can get?If she wanted to relocate to NY state should it be down before any separation is filed in AZ?Can she remain in NY state and enroll the children in school?Thank YouChris

A:  This is a very complicated question. In order for your sister-in-law to get a New York divorce she must establish residency for at least one year for her to qualify. As for a separation or divorce, your sister-in-law should see an attorney in AZ to determine her rights under AZ law. I personally think she should fight this out in AZ before any relocation. As for moving with the children, she can stay in NY and enroll the children in school. The law states that the home state for the children is established after 6 months residency. If your SIL stays in NY for 6 months with the children and enrolls them in school, takes the to a NY doctor or...

Q: 

Please i need to know if carrying an open bottle in a car is illegal and if it is a state law or a nationwide law? I live in FL. Also I please ned to know if the DUI 3 strikes law is nationwide or state controlled. Like if you get 3 DUI''s is your license gone forever? Thank you so much

A:  I''m hesitant to answer because you really should sit down with an attorney and discuss this with them because there are always exceptions to every situation. I can tell you that every state has their own laws when it comes to open containers and DUIs. Some states a second DUI is a felony. In Florida, only some third and all fourth DUIs are a felony. Some states it''s criminal to have an open container, others it''s merely a traffic infraction. That is why I suggest you talk to an attorney in person....
