  • Can a landlord evict a tenant without paying property taxes?

    I think my landlord made up her own eviction notice on line , because she doesn't want to pay property taxes.

    Veleka’s Answer

    Property taxes have nothing to do with your landlord's right to evict you for violation of the lease.

  • What is entailed with squatter's rights in Louisiana?

    Got divorced, have four kids, ex stopped paying mortgage five years ago. I can't afford rent and can't take him back to court.

    Veleka’s Answer

    First of all squatters rights won't apply because if I read right, you still have a mortgage. So, neither of you have a title or deed showing that the mortgage is satisfied. So, no you won't be able to live there and the mortgage company has a right to foreclose on the house. You can't SQUAT and expect the property to become yours because in theory you are also an theoretical owner already. The mortgage company is the owner until you satisfy the payment schedule. They mortgage company will have to go to court to obtain a judgment of possession to have a legal right to start the eviction process, but if you guys still owe money you may wish to contact a bankruptcy attorney to discuss your rights or get a modification of the existing terms because you both are expected to pay the note. ALSO, You may be able to go to court if the house note was not considered in the partition of the community property. You should be able to get enough support for your maintenance to maintain the status quo that existed during the marriage considering that the kids love there. A real estate and/or a bankruptcy attorney my be able to assist. Also family law attorney for the partition.

  • Neighbor's minor kid broke into my house. Can I sue their homeowners insurance?

    They checked her room after we confronted them and gave back some stuff but now are flaking on replacing the 3 remaining items which also happen to be the most expensive. Police are involved, report filed, my home finger printed etc. Can I sue the...

    Veleka’s Answer

    Most homeowners insurance policies are for accidents that occur on the premises, this would apply to breaking legs because of a faulty stairwell, or getting bit by the homeowner's dog. Nevertheless the act of breaking into your home was an intentional act that is not related to your house per se. However if the daughter is charged, you can request restitution as part of the deal, as suggested by attorney Coleman. Nevertheless, the insurance company's actual policy defines the coverage, most often however, and I wouldn't be surprised if the insurance company has an EXCLUSION CLAUSE for intentional acts like burglary. Her parents may be the ones having to pay you if the insurance won't.

  • Do I have to move back to Louisiana where kids father lives, or am I ok to move from Texas to Florida?

    Ex lives in Louisiana, I and the kids live in Texas(for about a year +), but want to move to Florida. Ex, says i have to move back to Louisiana and can't move to Florida. I am the primary parent also. Is this true I have to move to Louisiana or ...

    Veleka’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Coleman. If a joint custody arrangement is in effect you have to file a petition to relocate children. It is not something one can just do if the other parent is involved with the kids. it is a matter that has to go before the judge who renders judgment after weighing the advantages vs. the disadvantages of the proposed change.

  • What to do if the tenants keep avoid giving you a copy of ID?

    spoke with tenant told her verbal what's expected of her in the rental agreement I asked that she get me a copy of her and her fiancee ID so i could get her a written copy of her rental agreement.

    Veleka’s Answer

    If they are not already in your unit don't rent to them. You have no way of IDing them. It's your place and you don't have to rent to them. If they are giving you trouble now, imagine what kind of tenants they would be. An ID is a basic item and most adults have one. The fact is reading mistrust out of someone 's evasiveness is your prerogative and so is your decision to go unto business (and renting your property is your business) with someone who is starting out a little "evasive" with you. Just something to consider.

  • Is it illegal to take pictures of someone in the hospital in a coma without their permission and put them on social media?

    My good friend got into a bad car wreak and when she was put in a coma, someone took a bunch of pictures of her. This same person caused a lot of trouble for her and her fiancé when she was in the hospital for weeks and even after when she went ho...

    Veleka’s Answer

    Absolutely. There are many things wrong with that. Privacy for one. There is also at least one tort and it could be stalking if criminal behavior is evident via a pattern of following with an intent to frighten or embarrass as the objective. There are even other causes of action that I can name. You need to have your friend contact an attorney right away. Once a year from the date of discovery of the pictures goes by then she may lose her right to bring suit.

  • I wanted to know if is there any legal actions I can take agains her for turning my seven years old child agains me

    Isn't that could lead to serious consequences

    Veleka’s Answer

    I agree with the answer provided. Your child will grow up one day and will probably ask why you stayed away when she was young. And when that happens she will probably understand having known and lived with her mother if you respond that her mom interfered. Nevertheless if you have any substantiated (PROVABLE, and not merely speculation, opinion, or a gut feeling) claims of abuse, and if there is a current consent agreement on custody and visitation and the mother is keeping the child away in violation of said consent agreement, then you may have a cause to purse a rule for contempt. This is only if you have a consent agreement currently in place.
    I would also suggest that if the mom keeps her from you may consider writing letters to your daughter. Hopefully her mom delivers them. But keep in mind once she is grown she will be able to bake her own decisions. Just maintain what little contact you have but don't give up. And, don't turn into the bad man who retaliates because that means her mom will have prevailed. Good Luck.

    It's a scam. Debt collectors will send you a letter with all their identifying information. And only a judge can enter a bench warrant.
