    You could try another doctor. Your facts are a little difficult to follow but from your description I don't believe you have a case for medical malpractice. You could also consult with an attorney who specalizes in med malpractice and fully disclose the facts to determine if you have a legal remedy.

  3. When we bought our property, we were told there were 28 acres. The deed and survey show 28 acres.

    You need to go back to the attorney who closed on the property transfer. It sounds like this was not performed correctly and you need to get a deed conveying the 7 acres from the previous owner to you, then pay the taxes. A stop gap method if the county is ready to sale now may be to contact the previous owner and either have them accompany you to the county or grant you a limited power of attorney to pay the taxes. In the end though you need to get title to the 7 acres straightened out.

  4. Why would a contract for sale of a house have to be approved by a court when there is a power of attorney involved?

    As noted by Mr. Zelinger, the POA ceased with death so it is no longer in the picture. In TN, court approval is required to sell a decedents real property in almost all cases. The exception is if the decedent left a will and that will empowered the executor to sell real property without ourt approval. The reason the court must approve is to protect beneficiaries and creditors of the estate. They want to make sure the sale is for a fair price (as opposed to an inside sale for way below...

    She could fill out the forms and request an appointed attorney. So long as she is truthful on the form, the worst they can do is say no. 3Class A's is serious business. If she is not appointed an attorney she should do whatever necessary to find the funds to engage an attorney. Nth e stakes are just too high.

  6. Chapter 7. For a purchase money security interest to exist, is the creditor required to inform me of the "security interest "?

    In order for there to be a purchase money security interest granted to a creditor, you would have to agree. It may have been buried in the documents you signed to obtain the card, but you must agree. If you did not agree the debt is unsecured.

  7. My husband lives in MI and I live in TN. He has filed for divorce. Do I need a lawyer in MI or TN?

    If he filed in MI, you would need a MI attorney to defend there, if you choose to defend. If you have not lived in MI and do not visit, the courts in MI could grant a divorce but could not divide property or award alimony so you might choose not to defend. You could file your own divorce action in TN and have the property divided and ask for alimony. For this you would need a TN attorney. The question of alimony is very fact specific and you would need to discuss your facts with an attorney....

    Yes. Lawyers represent criminals every day. Depending on the crime you show to the attorney and depending on if it has already happened or is going to happen, it might create a duty for the attorney to report the activity. It might also persuade the attorney to withdraw but it will not force the attorney to quit representing his client.

    Defamation requires "publishing" something untrue about another person that causes damage to the others reputation. Publication may be either spoken (slander) or written (libel). From your description it sounds like he at least put the untruth in writing. The key to a successful suit against him would first be to prove he wrote the statements (a copy of the e-mail and proof he wrote the e-mail). The other key will be to show the damages you suffered. Did you suffer significant damages such...

    So sorry your going through this. Technically the answer to your question is 90 days (that is the minimum time from filing for divorce until divorce granted). However, in reality that time frame only happens when the two parties agree. If he wants to slow things down, he can. If you don't have an attorney, get one immediately to push this along as quickly as possible. If you do have one, discuss your desire to go as quickly as possible. Don't let you eagerness to get it over with...
