    The decedent's friend should make sure to present the bill and receipt to the administrator. If the administrator will not reimburse, then the friend should present those same documents to the Court.

    To put it even more bluntly, just because there is a clause in the lease that a court decides is illegal, it does not mean the entire lease is illegal. It sounds from your question like you are renting space in a mobile home park. You should be aware there are special rules about evictions from a mobile home park that can work in your favor. You do have to be careful to ensure that whatever you do about your dispute with the landlord that you do not violate a provision of the lease ... once...

    I would add only one issue to the other two answers: are the loans secured? In other words, if the corporation gave a shareholder a "mortgage" (or a "security interest") on the asset loaned to the corporation, the shareholder might be able to recover its loan first.

    I suspect that we are mixing tax authorities here. The IRS (Federal tax) does not send notices to the effect that they will dissolve the corporation for failure to pay tax. Moreover, a corporation does not cease to exist if it fails to pay income tax. The tax at issue appears to be New York's "franchise" tax or the tax that states impose on you for the privilege of creating and maintaining a corporation. New York can (and will) dissolve your corporation if you fail to file the appropriate...

    In a word, No. Family Court deals only with issues concerning children who are under 18 or crimes between family members. If you want to engage in litigation, then the right approach would be to file for a guardianship or a change in guardianship either in Supreme Court or in Surrogate's Court. You said there is a "law guardian" which tells me there is somesort of guardianship already in place. Litigation is not the only alternative and it may well be the most costly option. You...

  6. Should a landlord notify tenants in advance when he's going to be doing work on the premises?

    Mr. Tupitzka's answer is sensible, but there are courts in New York who have said that some of these actions violate the "warranty of habitability." So, for example, if parking is included in your rent and you are kept from parking for a period, some courts would award you a credit. As Mr. Tupitzka notes, however, you need to consider carefully the effect of such actions before taking them.

    Gather up the papers you have and take them to Neighborhood Legal Services in the old high school building on Seneca Street ... the same building as the Moosewood Restaurant. They have a list of local attorneys who are willing to help with this sort of matter. Do *not* worry if you don't have the papers ... all the County Clerk records are available to local lawyers on-line and they can help you get them.

    Start, generally, with the entity directly responsible for the cause of your conflict. When in doubt, include any entity related to the issue. Make sure they are actually incorproated by checking them on the NYS Department of State website. I'll note your question is very general. Most lawyers will allow you to talk for an hour or so (many will charge a consultation fee) to help narrow your question and that fee may be a good investment for you.

    No New York court will "terminate" the father's parental rights permanently unless you are proposing an adoption. Without going into the details, the basic notion is that every child is entitled to have two parents if, at the very least, to inherit from if the parent dies. What you can do is file a petition to modify visitation in the Family Court to stop visitation if you can state facts showing that the father's skipping visitation is causing harm to your daughter. If, for example, she...

    Cortland generally uses a public defender system. You might have been given assigned counsel if there were multiple defendants. You are allowed to ask the Court for a new lawyer if you are uncomfortable with the lawyer representing more than one defendant. If you do not have a copy of the statement against you, you should be aware that you are allowed to ask for a copy of statements against you and that your lawyer has the right to trigger that process (called "discovery"). It is...
