  • Can divorcing parents terminate Court's jurisdiction on child matters other than support & custody, like private/home schooling?

    Both of us currently think that it is wise to not approach the Court to decide whether our child will go to a private school. So that we don't change our mind in future, can we stipulate that the Court's power to adjudicate such matters will end i...

    John’s Answer

    The Court will always have the ability to do what is in the best interest of the children. The parents cannot terminate the Court's judicial authority in regard to the best interest of the children.

    John’s Answer

    All in all, it sounds like you have endured enough grief that could be certainly characterized as harassment. Hopefully you have witnesses that can give you declarations under penalty of perjury concerning the conduct of your neighbors.

  • The contractor asks us to sign off for approval of his work, what does this mean?

    A contractor we hired to replace our roof did it wrong. It has taken us well over a year for him to be forced redo the roof with manufacture, CSLB, and his bond company. He insists he has to redo this because we don't like its look. When the ma...

    John’s Answer

    I do not see how you can sign off approval of the work when you are not a contractor and do not have the technical ability to make a valid determination of the quality of the work. You may want to have an attorney review your Contract with the Contractor and you may need to have another roof contractor take a look at the job.
