    What you are looking at is how to walk away from a house that is underwater and not remain liable for the debt. The brief answer is that it is possible to divest yourself of the asset and not owe any remainder on the difference between what you get on the market for the property and amount of the loan. To do this you will have to negotiate approval for a short sale. Keep in mind that the approval for a short sale is a banking issue, not a legal issue. Most attorneys and/or real estate...

    With all due respect to Mr. Brinkmeyer and I assume it was a typo. Defamation is the publication of a FALSE statement. Publication in this instance means it was made to a third party. Slander is an oral defamation, libel is a written defamation. The sex offender list is a public document and the information posted there is not "personal" it is, as I mentioned, public. Are you a registered sex offender or aren't you? It is unclear from your question. If you are a registered sex...

    You can only file for an adjustment of status if you have a visa approval letter from the U.S. Department of State saying your priority date has come up and a visa is available to you. I always recommend hiring an experienced immigration attorney when dealing with the USCIS. A small mistake could affect the rest of your life.

  4. Laws that would make Cannibalism illegal?

    There are no laws, per se in the U.S. making cannibalism illegal although the act of consuming human flesh does and/or may violate various other laws. Your specific scenarios raise some questions regarding whether someone who just lost a leg in an accident could have the mental capacity to consent. Or, if after an amputation, read the fine print in the documents you sign before surgery, the body part becomes the property of the hospital and is either considered medical waste, which is illegal...

    There are a number of questions an attorney would need answers to inorder to answer your question completely. First, How certain are you the inspector was real and authorized by the City of Chicago? Second, do you have a court order granting you posession of the property and an order for removal of the tenant? Third, have you actually been sued, in other words, has anyone served you with summons to appear? Yes, tenant's have rules they have to follow. When they don't they can get evicted....

    If he an illegal alien, meaning he entered the country without inspection and has no lawful basis to be in the country (i.e. a visa) then he is subject to deportation. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) is overwhelmed with the number of deportations required in So Cal. However, contact them immediately, particularly if you know his whereabouts. ICE can be contacted through their national reporting hot-line at1-866-DHS-2-ICE or you can contact the ICE field office in LA at: Los...

    A doctor can ask for payment "up front" prior to providing services. It is not illegal. However, it is illegal for a doctor to submit a claim for payment to an insurance company before the service is provided. Laser hair removal is probably not covered under any health insurance policy so the doctor is not violating any law. Often with plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures, insurance does not cover these procedures. Many doctors in this area require payment up front. This...

  10. Can a creditor's lien on my house stop it from being sold in a short sale?

    It is possible for the creditor with a lien to stop a short sale if the Lender (bank) requires a warranty deed as part of the sale. You may have to negotiate a deal with the creditor to get a release of the lien prior to the sale. If you can negotiate a quit claim deed with the lender then the lender takes the property "as is" inclusive of the liens. Use the wage garnishment as an argument that the creditor is receiving his money that way and that there is no equity in the property....
