    It depends on so many factors. I myself own a horse at a boarding facility, and I handle exactly these types of claims for our co-boarders, and facility trainers and owners. So long as you have clear documentation of the value of the horse and your ownership interest in the horse, it doesn't really matter where the horse is located -- you still co-own it and have a vested right to one-half of the value of the horse. Do you want the horse back, or do you just want to know where it is so you can...

    I agree with the gentlemen who have provided answers already. Short of filing a petition to remove your sister, you could have an attorney draft a demand letter to your sister on behalf of you and your other siblings, demanding that she take the necessary action to get the house sold or you will take action to have her removed. As the other attorneys noted, your sister may merely need a little prodding, rather than an actual court order, and a letter may do the trick without costing you a...

    The answer is -- it depends. I would have a lot of questions for you before I could make a precise determination here. But my biggest concern about your situation is the timeline. Let's say, hypothetically, that your son does have a valid claim for negligence or medical neglect against the jail system, and he (or you on his behalf if appropriate) would seek to sue this governmental body. In California, you have to file an administrative claim with the governmental body within six months of the...

    If you have a claim, it sounds like you would need to pursue it in Utah, since that's where the injury occurred and where the defendant is located. You need to get in touch with a Utah personal injury attorney to find out your rights and discuss the viability of your claim.

  5. How to sue trustee of mothers living trust

    Your question actually raises more questions than answers. In order to thoroughly answer this, I would need to review any documents you have about the trust and this property. A trustee has a fiduciary obligation to the beneficiaries that this trustee may have breached, but it's hard to tell without getting a more detailed view of the situation. I have sued trustees in the past for breaching their fiduciary duties, so it can be done in theory, if you have a valid case. I will be happy to give...

    I agree that your daughter (not you) may have a viable claim against the center, but no attorney can give you a more detailed analysis of the situation without knowing a whole lot more facts. You should make an appointment to go talk with an attorney who handles injury and premises liability cases. Most attorneys, myself included, offer a free initial consultation, during which time you can discuss the details and really determine your daughter's options.

    If the value of your property is less than what you owe on your first mortgage, then you can probably strip the second mortgage lien in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. Chapter 13 involves a payment plan to pay back part of what you owe to your creditors. Based upon what you say, it doesn't look like that is going to be possible. Consider obtaining an appraisal to determine the true worth of your home -- lots of people overestimate their home value. If your home is worth less than $170,000,...

    Because there are no dates or timelines in your question, it's impossible to advise you regarding the statute of limitations or laches issues. However, fraud can "toll" (delay) the statute of limitations if it delayed your ability to learn of the breach or your damage. Yes, Ventura County would be the best venue for this lawsuit if this is where the defendants are located. You MIGHT be able to claim jurisdiction in WA, depending on how the defendants solicited you, but it's really easiest to...
