    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.

    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.

    Small claims court is probably your best bet. Be sure to show up with all the proof of your payments. Good luck!

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

    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.

    The father needs to be notified. If he doesn't consent, you still have the ability to request it and let the court decide if it's appropriate.

    Unless there is some court order allowing her specific child contact rights, the answer is no.

    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.

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

    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!

  9. Should i seek legal advice / start lawsuit on this matter ?

    You should seek the help of an employment law or discrimination lawyer. Ask the Maine Bar Association for a referral or check out your local yellow pages.

    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.
