    Possibly you can have this set aside as having been signed under duress. You would need to contact your attorney pretty quickly after having both signed it and get them to file something to set it aside.

    You might need to file a modification of your divorce and ask for supervised visitation. Going to see an attorney for a consult and advice that can pull up his record would be a good idea.

    Did you or he put this in writing? Did you pay him? If you did not pay him at the time did you sign a contract? Was there total communication and an understanding about all aspects of the matter? Sometimes other things come up that were not comtemplated but your contract should say for example, x number of dollars for an uncontested divorce, x number of dollars if the divorce becomes contested. You can always take your contract to another lawyer to review. I would encourage you to meet...

    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...

    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.
