    Stole your car? Pointed a gun at you and your son? Are your children his children?

    You need a safe place to stay, and help from organizations that help battered and abused women and their families.

    Then you should find a divorce lawyer. Sorry your husband is such a lunatic.

    Peter’s Answer

    Wow... You all need to get your own attorneys, if what you say is true. I would think there is a conflict there. I do know that your interests are being best served, so find independent counsel, FAST!

  • Judgement of Default (land Lord / Tenant) How can I get this off of my credit?

    I went to Court against my apartment complex. I was given the option to pay or move. I tried to explain to Their Attorney that When I Moved in, I was given 2 months rent free, because of the things I went through with the leasing office when I mov...

    Peter’s Answer

    Service by posting is good only for possession of the property in the event of a default. So, if I have this situation correct, you actually appeared for the court date, and the judge gave a judgment to landlord for possession and rent after trial(?). This post is confusing.

    Peter’s Answer

    The DUI and the Child endangerment charges were dismissed or did you get an SIS or what? Do you need a gun for your job?

  • Should I force my mom into probate court?

    Dad died last summer. He left a will and the state gives 1 year from DOD to probate. I was told needs to be $40K of assets without her name on it. All his siblings state there was something about it she didn't like. My brother was discussing chang...

    Peter’s Answer

    Holy moly... You need to find a probate/trusts and estates attorney, and discuss this thoroughly with him or her. There's too much here, and too much that you may not be divulging, for an attorney to help you with anything approaching substantial advice. Best wishes and sorry for your loss.

    Peter’s Answer

    All I am going to say is this: If you have already hired an attorney, then you will have to fire that attorney, before trying to hire another one. Do it in a phone message and also in writing.
