I agree with the attorneys here. The house is an asset of the marriage and will be subject to equitable division between you. Whether he is entitled to half, more than half or less than half is an answer that requires consideration of more factors than have been provided here. As my colleagues have suggested, you should sit down with a family law attorney and discuss the situation in greater detail. Good luck.
The short answer is yes. Your mother is not immune from suit simply because of her relationship toward you.
However, there are a number of very important issues to weigh before taking legal action against your mother. These include but are not limited to the nature of the abuse, the effects of the abuse on you, the relationship between you and your mother, the relationship between you and other members of your family who may be affected by this, the likelihood of success and the extent...
Every state has laws of intestacy which govern situations like this. The property will pass according to the relevant state statutes. Likely, the individuals surviving spouse (if one) or children (if any) will take the majority of the property. If there is no spouse and no children, the individual's siblings, grandchildren or more distant relatives may be entitled to a share in the estate. You should contact a RI attorney to discuss the specifics.
If both parties agree that the outcome is fair, it is unlikely a judge will override their decision. If one or more attorneys are involved it's even less likely. I would have an attorney review the agreement for you and perhaps draft a property settlement agreement to be signed by each party. The attorney will be able to tell you if a judge is likely to allow it or not after reviewing the terms. Feel free to call my office if you'd like. Good luck.
Generally for a month-to-month tenancy, 30 days notice after the end of the current rental period is required. However, as my colleague suggested, there are exceptions for certain criminal activity. Speak with an attorney. Good luck.
Maybe. That's as good of an answer as you could possibly get with the limited information provided. You need to speak with a family law attorney and discuss your situation in depth. There are many, many factors that need to be considered and depending on the situation and your options, you may not even want half the 401k. I suggest you call an attorney sooner rather than later.
Without knowing more, it sounds like you were at one point receiving FIP benefits or State medical coverage. In either case, the state may take action on your behalf to recover support or medical cash contributions from the non-custodial parent. You may or may not be entitled to the money recovered, depending on what benefits you were receiving and other factors. I suggest you contact the Office of Child Support services and ask to speak with your caseworker or a staff attorney. Good luck.
I agree with my colleagues. These issues require a very close look at the individual's finances and strategic planning to achieve their objectives. There is no one way that is best for everybody and there hasn't been nearly enough information provided to determine an answer to your question. Feel free to contact me if you would like to thoroughly discuss the matter.
The quickest way to end this harassment is to obtain a restraining order through the district court. I suggest you speak with an attorney about assistance obtaining the order, as they can be quite tricky. Feel free to call my office if you would like some help. 454-7700. Good luck.
It sounds like you are still married. A marriage won't just "dissolve" legally without one, or both, of the parties taking action through the legal system. Therefore, if you want to marry another person, you need to go through the proper divorce process first. If you have been a resident of RI for over a year, you will most likely be able to take care of this in RI, though it will take a minimum of a few months so it is best to get started ASAP. You will need to discuss further details with...
