    The debt was incurred (if it was a debt) long before you were married and it should remain his separate debt. You should not have any joint liability unless you signed documents assuming the same. Future problems may exist if you and your husband hold joint accounts and your father in law got a Judgment against your husband. I would suggest you maintain separate accounts and do not have joint ownership of real property.

    Your mother certainly has the ability to revoke her Power of Attorney. She needs to sign a replication of Power of Attorney and specifically indicate that your sibling has not power over any of her property including the address of her home. If this is notarized, it can then be recorded it will kill any deal your sibling attempts to enter into regarding sale, refinance, or anything else with regards to your mother's property. You need to move quickly and should immediately retain a qualified...

    The title of the case is not important, what is important is how the Judge will rule in regard to a court order and distribution and allocation of the asset or assets. If you really want to re-title the litigation, probably easiest way would be to dismiss the original case without prejudice and refile with the name you desire to use; although, it really would just be a waste of money and would not accomplish anything other than the goal you decided you want to seek out.

    Generally, to recover attorneys fees and costs there must be a provision in the contract, outside the facts of other statutory exceptions which you probably do not fall within. To get an order of attorney fees, the only mechanism would be by and through a law suit, which from your factual statement, apparently has not been filed.

    Our office has maintained a family law practice in Alameda County, Santa Clara County and Contra Costa County for the past 31 years. I have represented several thousand of individuals in family law matters. The dissomaster really not controlling in regard to spousal support. Many times the Judges will fudge, be lazy and look for this dissomaster for temporary spousal support orders. In regard to a permanent spousal support order at time of trial it is judicial error to just refer to the...

    You have not asked the question. You warned the manager of the dangerous condition, and you can pursue as you go into the bathroom a slip and fall. It sounds like a combination of negligence on the part of the motel attributed to negligence on your part. If you want to be compensated for injuries you are going to have to have a dentist and a medical doctor take a look at your injuries and provide you with their opinions. ______________

    The real issue is what are your damages? Do you have any broken bones, sprains, tears of muscles or significant injuries? Do you have any scarring? If in fact your body did not repair itself quickly, then you need to see a medical doctor and perhaps a specialist to see if there are residual problems. You may have serious problems than you may have a case Otherwise you may have to file in Small Claims Court as against Luckys.

    Yes, you do have legal rights against the insurance carrier. Your faced with major losses regarding your vehicle, liability to the other party and a police report against you. With your present facts I would very seriously consider immediately consulting with an attorney in person so that individual can review the insurance policy, interact with the insurance company and review the police report.

    Your previous counsel had advised you that your conveyance of your home into a trust with a successor beneficiary other than yourself after your demise would not trigger a tax reassessment. To take the analysis one step further, upon your demise unless the alternate successor beneficiary was a child or grandchild then there would be a reassessment of the property at that point and time.
