    As an heir you are entitled to contact the attorney to get the facts as to when the estate was opened, whether there was a will, and when any distributions may be made. If you do, ask if the attorney is the probate attorney or represents the Personal Representative. In the alternative, you can contact the Register of Wills/Orphans Court in the county in which your grandmother resided and request to see the file on the estate. For nominal fees you can make copies of any of the documents that...

    It is best that you have an attorney examine the documents that you filed as well as the Request for Evidence (RFE) that you have received, in order to give you an accurate explanation of what is being requested. In regard to the Form I-186, all income reported was supposed to be that of the Sponsor; you should understand that the sponsor for that form, was attesting that s/he could support you, should you be unable, in order to prevent you from becoming a ward of the state. It is important...

    It is best if you contact an attorney and have her/him review the signed loan agreement. Payday loans are not illegal per se; however, there are strict rules in regard to them including statutory caps on the interest that can be implemented on the loan. An attorney can research whether it is a legitimate debt collection agency and whether they are abiding by the laws for collecting debts. A written demand for a detailed statement should be made and you can protest the amount that it being...

    I suggest you consult with an attorney to ensure that you have solid written contracts for the settlement of the debt that your friend currently owes and a contract that concerns future rent. They are two separate obligations.

    More facts are needed to fully understand the problem you are facing. Keep in mind that, in Maryland, check-cashing services can only charge up to 10 percent of the amount of your personal check, and the transaction cannot be renewed. You should send a letter to the collection agency demanding a detailed statement of the debt they claim that you owe. They have 30 days to respond. Once you receive that statement, consult an attorney to determine whether they have a valid unexpired claim.

    Did the collection agency ever send you a written demand letter (demanding that you pay X amount)? In Maryland, they are required to send you two letters before commencing an action against you. If they did send you a written demand, the letter would have said that you had 30 days to challenge the amounts owed. At this juncture, request of the collection agency that they send you an accounting of all the charges owed. If they fail to comply, then contact the dentist and request the same....

    The answer to your question depends on the written terms of your contract with your landlord and the written terms of the sublease agreement that you executed. It appears from your question that you were permitted to sublease; if so, then, by all means, you are eligible to bring a breach of contract action against the friend who agreed to sublease but failed to pay you all that you were owed. The outcome of the breach of contract action will depend on the terms of the written agreement. The...

  9. I brought a car from my ex boyfriend mother who force his name on the title can I sue

    I do not see grounds upon which you can sue. If you were purchasing the car for yourself, it was incumbent upon you to make sure that the title was placed in your name in exchange for the money that you were paying. In the alternative, if you were making a loan to your boyfriend for the purchase of the car, since the agreement was over $500, it was necessary that you put the agreement in writing. Without a written agreement or your name on the title there is no means to enforce the terms...

  10. Can I send product ideas/prototypes to a company (toy business) on an H4 visa?

    You may not receive compensation as long as you are on the H4 visa. If you are looking to develop a business idea which would result in compensation from a U.S. company, you would need to set up a company abroad and perhaps enter on an L1 visa or you could examine the EB-5 visa and see if there is any way to develop your idea(s) into a business that would qualify under the Eb-5 parameters. In addition to consulting an immigration attorney you should also consult an attorney who specializes...
