    Tyler’s Answer

    You can't legally drive a vehicle with a salvage title on a public highway. Obtaining a reconstructed title is the method for making a vehicle that was previously designated as salvage street legal.

  • Do wills need to be reviewed and updated every two years

    Will has already been finalized and signed April 1, 2011. Does it need to be reviewed and initialed and dated every two years to stay in effect.

    Tyler’s Answer

    No. Although it is a good idea to periodically review your estate plan and adjust it for changes in your family and finances. Once signed, a will remains in effect until it is revoked.

  • I am being sued for injuries from my dog, how can I prove my case?

    I have a fenced yard and my dog is tied with a leash. I adopted my dog from the SPCA and is trained. My dog never has bitten anyone. There was never a police report made. My neighbor just went straight a lawyer.

    Tyler’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Aitken. If the neighbor has already spoken to an attorney, you should be contacting your homeowners' or renters' insurance carrier about the claim and not communicating any further with the neighbor or the neighbor's attorney. If you do not have insurance coverage, you should contact an attorney to represent you immediately. You seem like a responsible dog owner and I'm sure your first instinct is to try to work something out. But you need to protect yourself, even if the injury seems fairly minor.

    Tyler’s Answer

    I'm sorry but It's hard to understand exactly what you are asking. But Its difficult to envision a scenario where a provision in a father's will could legally prevent you from marrying his daughter. If a lawyer is charging you to probate the father's will or administer the estate, those fees are usually taken from the estate itself. If someone is telling you you need to give them money in order to get some sort of inheritance, it could very well be a scam. You should have a reputable attorney review any documents you've received.

    Is that legal to operate a essay writing services? Like some website which provide assignment writing service for student.

    Tyler’s Answer

    It's unethical and very, very sad. That much is for certain. And I think using such services violates the honor code of most reputable institutions.

  • Does the order of items in a will take precedent of the following items?

    My mother is deceased, had a will. Has 8 items in it. Item 3 states that she gives, devises, and bequeaths her entire estate to me provided I survive her by 30 days. A year transpired already. Item 7 states: "In the event (I have) not attained the...

    Tyler’s Answer

    Those two clauses sound like fairly standard estate planning language. It's common from estate plans to direct bequests to younger beneficiaries be held in trust. They don't actually contradict each other so which one takes precedence really isn't the issue. If you were under the age of 30 when your mother passed, then the trust language will come in to play. But you would be better advised to discuss this with the lawyer who is handling your mother's estate and/or the person who is designated as trustee.

  • Can an employer charge their employees if they break something? If they order the wrong food or drinks?

    I work in a restaurant in Pa. Is it legal for them to charge a dishwasher for broken dishes? To charge a server for ordering the wrong food? To charge a server if they drop a tray of food?

    Tyler’s Answer

    Under the Pennsylvania Wage Collection and Payment Law, an employer generally cannot make pay deductions in that manner unless the employee consented to it in writing or through a collective bargaining agreement (for employees in a union). The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry enforces this law and accepts complaints from employees. An attorney in your area may also be able to help.

    A contract does not need to be notarized to be binding. Consider filing a civil action with your local magisterial district justice.

  • Mom died 4 months ago. Willed all equally to children. I am one of them. House is for sale. If I died, who would get my share?

    I have grown children. Mom's will states: In the event that any of my said children fails to survive me by 30 days, then deceased child's share shall pass to the then-living issue of my deceased child, per stirpes; or, in default thereof, to my ...

    Tyler’s Answer

    I'm sorry for your loss. I think it would depend on what your estate plan says at this point. Since you have already survived for more than 30 days, you have an established entitlement to your share of your mother's estate. If you have a will, your share of your mother's estate would pass to whoever your will designates. If not, it would pass under the intestacy provisions of the PA probate code. If you don't have an estate plan in place, you should talk to an attorney about setting one up.

  • Can i collect unemployment and ssi in PA

    i get about $760 a month in uc benefits.

    Tyler’s Answer

    I agree but to elaborate: One of the conditions of receiving UC is that you are ready, willing, and able to work and are actively seeking employment. One of the conditions of receiving SSDI or SSI is that you are physically or mentally unable to engage in any substantially gainful activity due to a provable disability. So you see, both those conditions cannot be true at the same time. They are mutually exclusive.
