    Frank’s Answer

    Thanks for using Avvo. Please note that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia. Due to the high volume of questions right now, it may take longer for some of our loyal Avvo lawyers to get back to you. In the meantime, I wanted to offer some preliminary help. As long as you meet the residency requirements you can begin the divorce process on your own.

    I have attached is a web link to the Judicial Branch of Georgia Divorce Self-Help Resource, but I strongly recommend that you contact a family law attorney in your area. Good luck.

    Thanks for using Avvo. Please note that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Florida. Due to the high volume of questions right now, it may take longer for some of our loyal Avvo lawyers to get back to you. In the meantime, I wanted to offer some preliminary help. The state of Florida recognizes permanent periodic alimony, rehabilitative alimony and lump sum alimony. Alimony is dependant on many different circumstances. Typically the court will always consider the need for support of one spouse and the other spouse's ability to pay. I strongly recommend that you contact a family law attorney in your area. Good luck.

  • CA landlord tenant law, landlord's right to evict for not paying rent

    IF I HAVENT PAID RENT FOR 2 MONTHS ONLY PARTIAL PAYMENTS, CAN THEY VACATE US IN 3 DAY?

    Frank’s Answer

    Thanks for using Avvo. Please note that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of California. Due to the high volume of questions right now, it may take longer for some of our loyal Avvo lawyers to get back to you. In the meantime, I wanted to offer some preliminary help.

    A landlord in California can use a written three-day notice if the tenant has failed to pay the rent. The notice must accurately state the amount of rent that is due and the notice must state:

    (i) the name, address and telephone number of the person to whom the rent must be paid;
    (ii) If payment may be made in person, the usual days and hours that the person is available to receive the rent payment. If the address does not accept personal deliveries, then you can mail the rent to the owner at the name and address stated in the three-day notice. If you can show proof that you mailed the rent to the stated name and address (for example, a receipt for certified mail), the law assumes that the rent payment is received by the owner on the date of postmark;
    (iii) Instead, the notice may state the name, street address and account number of the financial institution where the rent payment may be made (if the institution is within five miles of the unit). If an electronic fund transfer procedure was previously established for paying rent, payment may be made using that procedure.

Due to the high volume of questions right now, it may take longer for some of our loyal Avvo lawyers to get back to you. In the meantime, I wanted to offer some preliminary help. There are many kinds of defects that could make a rental unit unlivable. A rental unit may be considered unlivable if a nuisance endangers the health, life, safety, property, or welfare of the occupants, but keep in mind that California laws does not hold landlord's responsible for damages caused by the tenant, tenant's guests, or pets.

    Thanks for using Avvo. Please note that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of California. Due to the high volume of questions right now, it may take longer for some of our loyal Avvo lawyers to get back to you. In the meantime, I wanted to offer some preliminary help. California law states that a landlord can enter a rental unit to make necessary or agreed-upon repairs, decorations, alternations, or other improvements as well as a handful of other reasons.

    The landlord or landlord's agent must give the tenant reasonable notice in writing before entering the unit, and can enter only during normal business hours, typically, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. The notice must state the date, approximate time and purpose of entry. However, if the tenant and landlord have agreed that the landlord will make repairs or supply services, and have agreed verbally that the landlord may enter to make the repairs or supply of services, then advance written notice is not required.

    You should consult a top Avvo-rated lawyer in your area. Good luck.
