    My Mother passed away this year and my brother and sister are accusing me of killing her and of stealing from her and all that . He says he will see me in court what can I do to make him leave me alone?

    Alan’s Answer

    If he is harassing you and you feel threatened, you can file a protection from harassment case against him. Go to your local district court for help with the paperwork. Good luck.

    Alan’s Answer

    I have never heard of an objection to being named in a Power of Attorney because you're on disability. As long as your disability doesn't affect your mental capacity, I don't see how you being disabled matters.

    The time for bringing this type of law suit (statute of limitations) has probably expired. Absent something unusual, you should not have to pay this claim.

  • My ex-husband's wife was recently arrested for OUI. Can I do anything to prevent her from driving my kids around?

    My ex-husband is a lawyer and a bully

    Alan’s Answer

    Were your children in the car when she was arrested? Has she been found guilty of the OUI?

    You certainly can file a motion or have your lawyer file a motion asking that she not drive your children. I don't believe the chances of success are that good unless there are aggravating circumstances about your ex-husband's wife's arrest or her driving record. Good luck!

  • Can i sue my landlord for not evicting another tenant for harassing me?

    I have harassment order on him, and he has been served a summons for violating it.

    Alan’s Answer

    I don't understand why your landlord has any obligations directly to you. Unless you have a court order requiring your landlord to do something, it probably isn't his responsibility to ensure that this person not bother you.

    You have every right to ride your horse on a public roadway. Your neighbors are not correct when they say that they are not liable for the actions of their horse.

    You may also need to have a lawyer in CA who will make sure the local court has a copy of your divorce judgment so that it can be enforced in CA. Good luck!
