    You may or may not be considered common law married. Immediately take pictures and inventory your assets. I actually just won a case last week where the woman had sued the man for common law marriage. They had been together almost 20 years and they were found not to be common law married. As the other attorney said in his answers to you, whether you are found to be common law married depends on whether or not you had joint bank accounts, filed joint taxes, claimed yourself as married to...

    Go to the probate court and ask them if you can look at the file. Tell them your relationship with the deceased, and tell them you have not received notices, and If you should be included give them your name, address and phone number. Ask them if you can purchase a copy of the will. If the file has a will in it and you can read it for yourself and see what she left who. Good luck..

    Go to Fultondale City Hall and get a copy of their rules, and ask the clerk your question. If you are conducting club business that is a type of business activity. Better to be safe than sorry. A business license does not cost that much. If you cannot understand their rules after you pick up a copy and talk to them, bring them in and I'll be glad to review them with you.

    Since you intend to pay with your income tax money it is doubtful that they will be able to sue you and take a judgment before you get your tax refund assuming you file as soon as you get your 1099's or W2's and assuming that the IRS pays you and doesn't challenge your refund for any reason. You have to be served with legal papers and if you tell the attorney that sues you that you agree to with a settled paying arrangement sometimes you can negotiate a payment plan that will work with your...

    Hire an attorney once again and ask the attorney to make him pay attorney fees back to you for this and every subsequent filing and follow their advice.

    Your friend would be best advised to pay the $350.00 that he owes as the legal troubles he can end up with would cost him more than that.

    Do nothing until you are served with legal papers. If you are served with legal papers then let an attorney review them. If she files nothing before he's 19 then the issue is over and you will owe nothing. If she files something before he's 19 then the court will decide how much, if anything you will have to pay based on all the circumstances in this case. It would behoove you to hire an attorney if you are served with court paperwork.

  9. I have finished paying child support payments but the payments are still being garnished from my check? What should Ii do?

    Go to the clerks office at divorce court and ask them for a form to stop the garnishment. As long as there are no arrears you will be able to get it stopped by filling out the form and paying the court their filing fee. If you are behind you need to enter a plan for payment of the arrears. Any lawyer can do this for you as well if you can't figure out what to do. The lawyers office will charge for their time and charge a runner fee and charge the court fee as well.

    As long as there is a court order you have to obey it. You need to petition the court to stop your obligation to pay child support and set a payment on the arrearage. You also need to petition the court to award you child support. If you can pay up the arrearage get it paid up so that's not an issue as interest continues to accumulate on the unpaid arrears.
