I am going through probate for my fathers estate. My father had 3 children. All heirs. My sister is the personal representative. She purchased my dads home during probate and has already taken occupancy.
Yes, most likely. As long as she paid fair market value and title has transferred, she has the same right of occupancy as any other purchaser.See question

State law provides that all probates must be closed within 18 months unless there is good cause that they need to be kept open longer such as to sell a business, sell real estate, deal with creditors, or file necessary income tax returns. Some counties have tighter restrictions and require estates to be closed within 12 months unless there is good cause. You can call the Register in Probate in the County where your father's estate is being probated and ask him or her the deadline. You could also search your father's name on the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access Program and the deadlines will be listed in the case details at http://wcca.wicourts.gov/simpleCaseSearch.xsl;jsessionid=8D20C1868DF564C3E56194A8E905D34C.render6?.

He cannot discriminate against you based on what could be characterized as a disability. You can call the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Equal Rights Division. The website is https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/er/equal_rights_division/contacts_all.htm and the phone number is 608-266-6860. The sooner you make a complaint, the better. I know from experience that the employers in Wisconsin Dells can be quite ruthless at times. Don't be afraid to call to explore your rights.See question
y attorney, and I have a dispute with the city
The attorney could not represent you in a dispute with the city, but could continue to represent you in your family law case provided that the city was not part of the family law case (and why would it be). If your question is can the attorney act on behalf of the city in its dispute with you, the answer is maybe. Although the attorney had represented you in the past in a family law action, he or she can take other cases against you provided that the attorney did not learn inside information about you while representing you that would give him or her an advantage against you in the city dispute. Best of luck!See question
he is now filing criminal damage for cutting his cable, am I liable for it ?? What about the damage to my tree??
In all liklihood, he is not actually going to file any type of suit against you for a dog cable. The cost of filing a small claims suit is at least $96.50 and he can replace the cable for less. Just hold your ground and try to remain calm.See question

In addition to the previous responses, tell them that you have an attorney and they need to stop calling you. Also, you can use caller ID to pick up the phone and immediately hang up the call every single time that they call. It can feel gratifying in addition to being effective.See question
I recently completed an internship with CollegeWorks painting and am told I signed a 3 year non compete clause with penalties of a 10 grand fine. Can this really hold me from starting my own painting business?
The plain answer is that a contract is a contract and it is likely enforceable. It seems that CollegeWorks assisted you in becoming a skilled painter. They would not have done so if you did not agree to the Non-compete. In other words, it would not train people with the plan to take those skills and turn around and compete with them. The non-compete should have a reasonable distance radius such as 30 miles of Chetek, Wisconsin or 30 miles of CollegeWorks' office. If not, it can be challenged. If so, you can start your own business outside of the radius.See question
Judge said I'm only responsible for the mechanical functioning costs. I.e. electrical/plumbing/roof/structure. If a dead tree fell on roof, which she is aware is dead isn't it her responsibility to take care of it before it becomes a functioning...
The practical approach is that you should want to preserve the value of this property as the remainderman beneficiary, so you should act fast to prevent additional damage to the home. It would be much faster to pay a professional to remove the tree and repair any damage that it has done than to sue your step-mother to force her to take these steps. It also may be less expensive to pay for the removal and repair as opposed to paying for litigation. A final thought is that the home owner's insurance may pay for all of the above except the deductible which is likely between $500.00 and $1000.00. A cooperative solution between you and your step-mother is likely much more time and cost efficient than a legal solution.See question
