    Send a certified letter to your neighbor that suggests you will demolish the pool and send them the bill if they do not move it themself. Provide them with a reasonable period of time to move the pool. Include a copy of the survey with the letter. If they do not move it you can take it down. Good luck

    I think you should hire a lawyer. If I were you I would want to spend a little now to avoid having to spend a lot later because of a mistake you (or someone else) made. Good luck.

    There is a way to get a divorce with service by publication. The court will require that you serve him by publishing in a local newspaper in circulation where he was last residing. Talk to an attorney and good luck.

  4. My boss tried to sleep with me, is this sexual harassment and what should I do?

    While a relationship between a boss and an employee is not legally prohibited, prolonged behavior such as that described is inappropriate. This is true especially given the hints at a pay raise. If his behavior has caused you to fear for your job security I think you should speak with an attorney. If you do have a claim for sexual harassment there is a very short window on reporting and filing claims.

  5. In Massachusetts, how do I assert exempt property from creditor collections if there is a judgement against me?

    Answered over 2 years ago.

    The exemptions prevent the creditor from attaching the assets or income above and beyond what is provided for in the statute. If you are going to file for bankruptcy protection your best bet is to do it before the garnishment takes place. If the debt is dischargeable any money garnished is flushed down the drain. Talk to your attorney about restructuring your agreement. Good luck.

  6. Professor asks,,,,A case is in Missouri, deposition needs to be taken out of state (Mass)

    The Missouri lawyer must find local counsel to file a Petition for a Letter Rogatory. The petition gets filed in the appropriate superior court and the deposition can be completed using the local counsel in Massachusetts. In practice, this is what I have been asked to do by foreign counsel, however, I cannot say with certainty that it is still valid because I was not aware of any rule changes in 2011. Good Luck

  7. What rights Does my brother who is a disabled adult have living in my deceased parents home

    He has the rights of a property owner subject to the rights of you and your siblings as common owners of the same property. How long has he been living there? Was he ever paying rent to your parents? Has he contributed to the home by making repairs or paying taxes and insurance? If the house was divided among the children there is a way to separate ownership through a partition proceeding. I think we might be able to better advise you if we knew more about what the objective was.

    File an action against the associate in the Hingham District Court. Once you have a judgment you could attach the truck and equipment and force a sheriff's sale. Service would be effectuated at the defendant's last and usual address, or by publication if court-ordered. The sheriff will handle the sale but you will be required to front those costs. Good luck.

    No. Technically you do not have to hire a lawyer unless your property is owned by a corporation, however, it is not a good idea to represent yourself.

  10. I hired a Public adjuster & Lawyer to protect me on an insurance claim and both failed to protect me! How do i collect?

    To respond to your question I need more information. If you had coverage for this loss and you retained a lawyer and insurance adjuster to work on your behalf, they should have sought the dispute resolution provided for in your policy within the period of time allowed under your policy. If they failed to do so then you may have professional liability claims against one or both of them, however, you must be able to demonstrate that one or both of them undertook an duty of care to you.
