  1. If you are indicted on a conspiracy, is it true that there is two others that conspired with you? Would they be indicted also?

    My colleague is correct. A conspiracy involves at least one other person. As to why there is a 'hold' on police reports, it is impossible to answer that without being privy to other aspects of your situation. You need to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. If you cannot have one appointed for you by the court, hire one. Good luck.

    The holder of a life estate does owe a duty to the remaindermen (that's you and your siblings) to maintain the property and make repairs. As administrator of your father's estate, you have the right to inspect the property to determine its condition at this time. You can petition the court to gain access for that purpose, and the court will likely grant that request. In this situation, you and your father's widow both have possessory interest in the property, but those interests are '...

  3. Can my home,which is in foreclosure be sold at auction prior to my bankruptcy being discharged?

    You indicate that your home is in foreclosure. If your payments are not current on that loan, that creditor can ask the court to terminate the automatic stay that is in place until your bankruptcy is discharge. Those requests are often granted. You should have received notice of this action. If you have an attorney, direct this question to him or her immediately. You might try asking the lender for a reaffirmation on that loan. Good luck.

    Do not settle with the insurance company until you have had your consultation with your attorney next week. Because you do have a consultation, that attorney will be able to give you a much better idea of what your damages should be than anyone here. Good luck.

    The executor can petition the court to have access to certain funds to keep the house up until it is sold. Just as the proceeds of the estate are to be split evenly, absent some other provision in the will, the costs and expenses of administering probate are split evenly.

    You, as executor of the estate, can petition the court for payment of probate costs, which would come from the proceeds of the estate. If the home was in fact uninhabitable, you may also be able to recover those costs necessary to make the home 'sellable', but this is often a gray area in probate. What is acceptable 'maintenance' and what are unacceptable 'improvements' are frequent points of contention; do yourself a favor and gather all the information, including pictures, if you have...

  9. How far in arrears do I need to be, with 3 support orders, before I am jailed? Does being a fulltime student have any bearing?

    Being a full-time student will give you no relief from your child support obligations. There is no way to tell you with certainty when/if you will face time in jail for your delinquent support obligations. As to the 2 children you see on a daily basis, it may be that the court would modify your child support obligation for them because you contribute a significant amount to their daily needs. You would need to make a motion to modify, but that is no guarantee you would prevail. The...

  10. How do i stop bio mom from taking our ward around her moms sex offender boyfriend?

    It is not clear whether the man to whom you pose the objection is your daughter's boyfriend or your daughter's mother's boyfriend. However, if this man is a registered sex offender and prohibited from being around children, you have every right to be concerned. You can make a motion to the court to amend your granddaughter's visitation so she has no contact with this person. If the child's mother persists in the behavior, her rights could be severely curtailed. You can also call local...
