Q: 

theft by the executor of the will

A:  Laymans take: If you are dealing with a dirtball of an administrator I think your first step is to rview your options with a local solicitor skilled at such estate debates from the heirs side of the equation. Pay for some solid advice that is likley to fit your fact pattern. If there was some jewlery insured a few years ago at say $ 100,000--with the current surges in values of platinum, gold, and diamonds you could be looking at upwards of $250,000 of replacement value. Precisely how best to hold executors feet to the fire is best left to your solicitor and I would suggest you round up your other 3 sibs to be on your side witha common goal. If executor fails to properly account for estate assets and has pocketed these assets there may also be criminal issues involved. The executor is...

Q: 

Would someone please give me the relevent answer and not their opinion. Thank you.?

A:  You don''t mention what jurisdiction you''re in, so it''s hard to give you the most relevant information. In the United States, each state has laws that confer the ability of the legal next of kin to control the final disposition of a body once the person has died. In California, the order is as follows: 1. An agent under a power of attorney for health care who has the right and duty of disposition under Division 4.7 (commencing with Section 4600) of the Probate Code 2. The competent surviving spouse. 3. The sole surviving competent adult child of the decedent, or if there is more than one competent adult child of the decedent, the majority of the surviving competent adult children. 4. The surviving competent parent or parents of the...

Q: 

Who to go to when boss is verbal abusing you?

A:  Document EVERYTHING - dates, times, places, exactly what was said or done, a list of witnesses to each event. Keep a journal with all this in it. Get a lawyer. Own him. I had a boss that did it for over 16 years. The first few years were not too bad, but eventually abuse wears you down. Your best bet is to find a different job/workplace. It is not worth it to stay. The personnel department, and his supervisors would do nothing to help. Thanks, Univ. of Maryland. A hit man. BOSSES LIKE THAT ARE JUST REAL JERKS. GO TO YOUR HUMAN RESOURCES AND MAKE A WRITTEN COMPLAINT. IF THEY DO NOTHING THEN CALL THE LABOR BOARD IN YOUR STATE. DO NOT LET HIM GET TO YOU..JUST HANG IN THEIR AND DON''T QUIT.HE CAN LEAVE, NOT YOU. try and find the number for...

Q: 

Due Process violations but no jurisdiction for DC?

A:  The key is in your last sentence. You are on appeal with the Appeals Council. You must wait until they issue an decision before the district court has jurisdiction. I have had the appeals council take over 2 years to issue a decision. While the courts do not "favor" sua sponte dismissals, that does not mean one will not be upheld in the appropriate circumstances. is a very normal part of the legal system. Sue sponte means something is done by the court without request from a party. A dismissal because of jurisdiction is different than other dismissals. A court has no power/authority over a case unless it has jurisdiction. It sounds like your pleading clearly establishes that you have a claim pending and it hasn't resolved through the admin...

Q: 

My ex roommate who still owes $900 files bankruptcy, now what?

A:  You can''t sue her for any pasts debts or ones she is accruing now. Only debts acquired after the discharge. You do not seem to get it. She filed bankruptcy, she no longer legally has to pay you. nothing you can do, you''re out of luck. you are out of luck so sorry I am afraid that you are probably, as David S said, out of luck. When two people (roommates) rent an apartment together, they are usually jointly and severally liable for the rent. That means that each of you, separately, is obligated to the landlord to pay the entire amount of rent that''s due. How much of that rent you pay vs. how much your roommate is up to you and your roommate to work out between yourselves, but as between you and your landlord, your landlord has the legal right to recover the entire amount of the rent from...

Q: 

Cannot Locate the person whom i try to sue..

A:  Its your job to locate him---of course you can pay your lawyer to run a scavanger hunt--but you need to decide who has the more cost effective resources. There are services to "locate" people--your lawyer may know of some----or do some homework as to which ones work effectively. Many folks leave addresses with prior LL to get security back and often with postal service or there may be ways to forward mail so as to get new address. Some folks do not want to be found--and are pretty good at keeping low profile. If the person has moved out of state you may have complex problems to sue him in your home state unless you can somehow find and serve him in your home state. If the guy is a deadbeat--to win a suit may not get you a trip to...

Q: 

Short Sale Question: My husband and I found a home that was 3 days from going to sale and the realestate

A:  Write to the Idaho Real Estate Commission or check out Realtor.com for a place to post something like this. I found the MLS ruling for your information. An Accepted Offer = Pending or Active Contingent IMLS has recently received several complaints on listings that are still marked Active in IMLS with an accepted offer on them. No matter what other variables are in play (such as a short sale), if there is an accepted offer from the seller who is on the contract, the property must be marked Pending or Active Contingent (if the seller wants to continue to market the property). Listings that have accepted offers on them and continue as an Active status without being marked Pending or Active Contingent will be subject to a fine per listing. Again, listings must be marked Pending or...

Q: 

using the kids as mules

A:  Realistically, I I don't know what you expect as you are not there and the mother is the one providing the primary care and decision making on a day to day basis.  If you disagree with some decision which you feel isn't in the children's best interests, you are free to file, not because she hasn't consulted you, but because whatever action is not in the children's best interests.  Unless your children have some medical condition  the H1NI is recommended for all children. If the children are older, there's no reason they can't be discussing things with you.  Consider providing them with a limited cell phone so you can speak to them without interruption. If she is in violation of the parenting agreement, file for contempt.    ...

Q: 

Why have an abortion instead of giveing it up for adoption?

A:  I think this is an entirley horrible post. PRO LIFE! SCREW KILLING A LIVING BEING! Shezy: No Are YOU serious? What an insensative thing to say! People have thier questions and opinions and it''s not right to put people down for this. It wasn''t like they were being rude about it. And people who set the baby up for adoption are only concerned about not being able to take care of it. Abortion and adoption are two different issues. Abortion is about whether to continue a pregnancy. Adoption is about whether to raise a child after one has already decided to continue the pregnancy. Because anybody who has had any experience with the adoption and fostering system in Britain will tell you just how difficult it is to put a child up for adoption. Not only are you faced with the emotional challenge...

Q: 

Are soldiers the heroes we make them out to be?

A:  As someone who has served so far for 30 years, I don''t take offence to your question only for the reason that if you ask any service person, and kept asking service persons, you would not find one of us who would describe ourselves with the term ''hero''. That is one that society chooses to use and for the most part we shy away from it although out of politeness and courtesy we accept that society chooses to use it. For the most part we are all doing our jobs for deeply personal reasons. Reasons of love for our Nation, respect for the rules of law, regard for our fellow man, loyalty to the service person serving next to us, a desire to make things better or make things right and a whole host of other deeply personal reasons. If society chooses to call us heros,...
