    Yes, retain a lawyer to inquire into Puerto Rico's matrimonial records. It will be easier to find the decree if you know which Court executed the divorce.

    The answer depends on whether the agreement satisfies the Statute of Frauds. An attorney can answer your question after a formal review of your agreement. You would be well-served to discuss your dilemma with a New York business law attorney in a confidential forum as soon as possible.

    I agree with my colleagues. Unless Playboy provides you a license to use their images, it is possible that you would be subjecting yourself to a cease-and-desist action one day. Tread carefully and good luck.

    He cannot just kick you out if you have been living there for longer than 30 days. He can only evict you through Housing Court. Also you may want to contest the will. You would be well-served to discuss your dilemma with a New York estates attorney in a confidential forum as soon as possible.

    You should speak to your attorney about this situation (if you had one). If not, then you will be well-served speaking with a New York litigation attorney and retaining him/her to review/analyze the frivolous nature of his case(s) and come up with a gameplan to reclaim the fees.
