I hired a local contractor to install a metal roof on my home. He created a contract stating he'd install roof between November 14th - 27th. He never came. I called several times and he never returned any calls. I finally stopped into his offi...
It sounds like he's violated G.L. c.142a which is the home improvement contractors statute which is an automatic violation of G.L. c93A, which may entitle you to treble damages, attorney's fees and cost. I would contact an attorney to assist you in sending a demand letter for the immediate return of your money. Also for your future reference, contractors are generally not allowed to take more than 1/3 of the total contract price up front. Best of luck.See question
I got married to a women in PA in Feb but i live in Mass i want an annulment because im with someone else and have a baby can i do the annulment in my state or do i have to go back to PA
As the previous answer indicated, you can't get an annulment just because you no longer want to be married to someone. There are very specific reasons for which annulments are granted. To be divorced in MA you must live in MA for one year to meet the residency requirement. If you have not lived here for one year then you either need to wait or see if you can file in PA. Good luck.See question
How long is an event that happened where I was harassed valid for me to put it on the application for filing a harassment prevention order. After an attack on the whole family and especially the underage children, the judge only gave the harassmen...
There is no cutoff date, however, it is in the Judge's discretion to take time into consideration along with many other factors. I have seen Judges consider events that happened years ago and others who won't.See question

Given how long it has been since your ex has been in the picture it is very unlikely his testimony will hold much if any weight. However, this is an extremely serious situation you are in and I would urge you to retain counsel for your hearing. You can use the find a lawyer feature on avvo to find someone near you. Many attorneys offer free consultations.See question
I have no warrants I am aware of, some CC bills, bad debts I have, and am separated but no divorce filing yet. I also have back taxes, and so forth. This person was carrying a badge and gun, and my roommate detected something odd about him. If ...
Sounds pretty typical if he's attempting in hand service. Best bet is to call him and arrange a time to get the paperwork. Divorces need to be served in hand so it may be that your spouse filed and didn't say anything to you.See question

if a person filed a small claims case in court and lost, but I countersued and won my counterclaim, can she (the originator) appeal the magistrates decision? also, how can I collect my monies?
To appeal no, only the defendant can appeal a small claims decision. See a lawyer for other possible options.See question
I have a copy of said agreement. It's very detailed, includes full names of both parties and dates.
I agree that more details are needed however a contract is not generally binding unless it is signed.See question
My mother has a plot with her name on the stone in my stepfathers family lot. My stepfathers family is trying to stop her from going in the plot when the time comes. And the cemetery is not helping resolve the issue
If your Mother owns the plot (she'd have a deed or a contract showing such) then there's nothing your stepfather's family can really do to stop her. If when the time comes they try, you can hire an attorney to get an injunction.
Good luck!See question
I know this is very broad and general question. To be a little bit specific, which state supports women better in the event of divorce especially from the financial aspect and properties? For example if I have the choice to marry in California, Ma...
Our legal system is set up so that you can't shop around and find the "best" state to get divorced in. In order to get divorced in a particular state you have to meet the state's residency requirements. For instance in the Commonwealth you must have lived in the state for at least a year before you can file for divorce. Because this is a MA forum, we can only comment on the laws of MA not other states. Good luck.See question
