I will add to the other responses by saying Medicaid estate recovery may be an issue for your mother's estate as well. In some circumstances, Medicaid has the ability to recover monies paid for long-term care from the estate. I would need to know more about her estate, resources and income before being able to state what the effects will be.
Additionally, depending on whether your mother is married, has a will and/or who the other heirs of her estate are, there may be simplified probate...
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to file a motion to expunge or seek to cancel the lis pendens. The facts and circumstances of your specific situation are important in determining your options. It is also important to know the status and procedural posture of your neighbor's claim. There may be additional remedies available to you.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss the specifics of your situation.
Please feel free to contact me about this. There are several additional details that are needed before a full answer can be given. For example, whether your father is still living, whether your mom left a will and/or whether there was a probate proceeding opened following her death and what was done, whether you have been legally adopted by your stepfather, etc.
Please understand though that you are not "property" and do not "belong" to anyone. The question is one of who is responsible...
Without knowing specifically what you father is threatening against you and your mom, it is impossible to say whether he can in fact carry it out. Another question becomes whether his threats and other treatment are inappropriate and not in your best interests.
Depending on how long ago the divorce was granted, how old you were at that time, and the facts and circumstances surrounding the original divorce and custody arrangement, it may be possible to modify it now so that you can live...
There are several factors that determine whether the contractor can file and enforce a lien with respect to work performed on a homestead. There are several procedural requirements that must be followed strictly. You should consult with an attorney to determine whether the contract contains the required notices and whether the other statutory requirements have been satisfied.
Separate from the contractor filing and enforcing a lien are your options with respect to the allegedly substandard...
Do you and the other person have a written partnership agreement? If so, that will determine the rights and obligations for each of you. If there is no written agreement, Texas law provides how partnerships are formed, dissolved and the rights and obligations of the partners, if any.
You should contact an attorney to discuss the specifics in order to determine your rights and what can be done to protect them.
I would first contact the attorney you retained and paid and ask for a status on the matter and copies of the file. The attorney should provide you with the information you want.
There are many variables that impact what needs to be done such as whether the will was admitted to probate, whether an executor was appointed, whether the probate action is still open and others.
You should always purchase liability insurance for your business. Waivers are problematic and only affect your relationship with the customer that signs it. In other words, even if you have a solid waiver, certain things cannot be waived and an injury or other occurrence involving a person or property not subject to the waiver leaves you exposed.
Additionally, lawsuits are very expensive, even if you have a solid defense. One of the primary benefits of liability coverage is the defense...
If your father had a will and it has been filed as part of a probate action, you can obtain a copy of it. Alternatively, if you believe he had a will but it has not been filed, or it is being claimed he did not have one, you have certain options you can pursue.
If he had a valid will and that is being probated, the will determines the disposition of his probate property. If he died without a will, then Texas law determines the disposition of his probate assets.
You should contact any...
