  • Why does my son-in-law have to pay so much child support?

    His child support is based on a previous higher paying job and he now works construction, and does not work when it rains. He may work one or two days a week making nothing but they base his child support on a full week of working. They cannot...

    Edwin’s Answer

    Your son-in-law's best move is to get into full-time work. If that is not possible, he needs to hire a lawyer and Petition the court to lower his court based on changed circumstances.

    I have a feeling that his not being able to find full-time work will not be a satisfactory answer for the judge unless your son-in-law can demonstrate all of the efforts he has been making to obtain full-time work.

    His support obligation should take into consideration all of his children. If the last order was entered before the 8 month old was born, it may be time for the judge to revisit the issue.

    Either way, use the "find a lawyer" feature to locate a good attorney near Nolensville to help him. Good luck.

  • What rights does my 4 mo child's father have? His name is on the birth certificate. Do I have to allow him visitation?

    We have not been to court and he is not employed. He has not helped with any expenses and has recently failed a drug test (he is in a custody battle with his ex over his 6 yo daughter).

    Edwin’s Answer

    Miss Holland is exactly right. She is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys in Tennessee on the subject of child support and knows what she's talking about.

    If I were you, I would go back and read her answer again.

    Good luck.

    Edwin’s Answer

    Mr. Cannon is right. If you want to negotiate that check, you're going to need to deal with the probate court.

    Edwin’s Answer

    You and the 28-year old are better off not talking to anyone. If the police are investigating the 28-year old, tell him to hire a lawyer before charges are filed.

    Good luck.

  • Do I need an attorney to establish power of attorney for my grandfather?

    My grandfather is unable to take care of himself physically and financially. My sister and I originally had a power of attorney we printed off and had signed by my grandfather and notarized. Then we find out, that it had to be done through an atto...

    Edwin’s Answer

    An attorney isn't required to prepare a Power of Attorney. That being said, the people you are dealing with aren't required to honor the POA and deal with you.

    If your grandfather has capacity to know what he's doing, and no one was putting any pressure on him to sign the POA, it should be fine. That being said, it someone won't accept it, find out what their specific objections are. If they are telling you merely that it needs to be prepared by a lawyer, they are incorrect. They may be telling you that to get you out of their office.

    Edwin’s Answer

    He'll need to go through the process to evict you, but here's the bigger issue that I see: Why would you want to live with and/or marry a man who threatens to throw you out of the house?

    I respectfully suggest that you hitch your wagon to some other star. This guy sounds like a bum.

  • I'm in the process of selling my mom's estate she passed away 2yrs ago. I'm hearing I may have to pay capital gains to the IRS?

    The home is in TN and my mom purchased it for $34,000 in 1981. I'm selling it for $67,000.

    Edwin’s Answer

    The issue is the increase in value after mom's date of death.

    For instance: If it was worth $ 50K when she died and you sell it for $ 67K. You'll pay capital gains tax on $ 17K. I believe long-term capital gains are taxed at 15%, so you would pay $ 2,550 in taxes.

    If you hired a lawyer to handle mom's estate, go back and see that lawyer.
