    Because the order is from MA, their law will control the answer. You might want to repost this question using MA as your location so as to attract MA attorneys to answer. In TN your support would end at 18 unless the parties agreed to continue through college or the child had a severe medical condition. Again you need an answer on MA law.

    I would suggest you find a bankruptcy attorney in your area to discuss the possible benefits of a Chapter 13 or possibly Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This route may help reduce or eliminate many of your payments and allow you a chance to get your feet back under you.

    Adultery is but one of many grounds for divorce and is difficult to prove. If you list it as grounds your spouse is more likely to fight. If you have other grounds you might consider leaving adultery out as a grounds if there is hope of an agreed upon divorce. If you do list divorce the other party's identity will certainly come out during your proof on the issue. You mention you have written proof. Unless the written proof is explicit about sexual intercourse occuring between the...

  4. Can I file indigent for a divorce in Tennessee?

    Filing as an indigent would be applicable if you are unable to pay the filing fees and court costs. If you believe you are financially unable to pay these costs you can file a request with the court. They will evaluate your financial situation and make a determination. From your question you may be asking if you can file what is called an irreconcilable divorce. An ID divorce can be used where the spouses agree on all issues. In this case there is a marital dissolution agreement prepared...

    I am so sorry you are having to worry about this while going through end of life hospice care for your father. The executor named in a will has no legal standing until the person making the will dies. If your brother is taking your fathers property now, without your fathers permission, he is stealing his property unless your father has granted him a power of attorney to act on his behalf. After your father passes, anything your brother does may be reviewed by a court and if he is acting...

    I'm assuming from your question that your property was stolen and you are now seeing that property for sale on Craig's list. If so, it is probably best to let the police recover it and arrest the seller. You might want to keep calling the detective assigned to your case to inquire on the status. If you know the identity of the person you could file a civil action to recover the property as a last resort if the police do not resolve.

    Maybe. Defamation requires an untrue statement made by someone else about you that is "published" to a third party. In Tennessee you must always show that the statement also caused damage. It sounds like some of what you describe might fit the definition. There is not enough detail to determine if you have suffered actual damages. You can take all the evidence you have to an attorney to discuss. If your real motivation is to teach the other party a lesson, you might want to think...

    I'm not sure what your situation is from your question. A holographic will is a document in a persons handwriting, signed by that person, that states their testamentary intent. The document is legally operative. After the person dies, the document can be submitted for probate. If nobody challenges the document, it is likely accepted. Should somebody challenge the validity of the document, then there would need to be 2 persons familiar with the decedent's handwriting to testify the...

    I'm sorry you are going through this. I don't really see a question in your post. A couple things to think about. If she was prosecuted you would still lose your job. It is the owners decision, not yours. I know it's hard but let it go and start the job search.

  10. Can I be evicted if I am not 30 day or greater behind on the rent? And if I am receiving default notices what do I do?

    The landlord can start the process to have you evicted if you are in breach of your lease agreement. There is generally no requirement that you be at least 30 days behind before you are in breach, in fact generally you are in breach if you are late with rent. You can take a look at the brochure found by following the link at the end of this e-mail for lots of information on renters rights. Until the foreclosure, you must continue to pay under the lease. You will not be forced out of the...
