    Whether there is any criminal liability depends on particular facts. Pennsylvania's Consolidated Theft Statute does provide certain remedies under certain circumstances. If your husband had secured the work on the vehicle by a promise to deliver the insurance proceeds to the autobody shop then ther is a possibility that he could be charged with Theft by Unlawful Disposition of Funds or Theft of Services. In Pennsylvania, a mechanic's statutory lien is not an exclusive remedy for the shop...

    Your question is more of a landlord tenant issue and is apparently listed improperly under family law. That having been said, you should consult an attorney regarding available options such as filing suit and or withholding rent under the implied warranty of habitability or doctrine of constructive eviction. You should seek counsel with landlord/tenant experience. You may want to call the County Bar Association where you live for a referral.

    If the person can be reasonably identified as a party to a contract, the incidental misspelling of their name is most likely insufficient to make the contract void or voidable. In fact, presenting such a defense is more likely to place your Husband in material breach of any contract he may have.

    If you are a priority creditor, which child support arrears are, the arrears must be provided for in the plan for the debtor to adhere to the Bankruptcy Code and to obtain confirmation. Generally, if no POC is filed, the Trustee will notify the Debtor that the plan is non-confirmable. In all Chapter 13 cases wher there are domestic support obligations, the Debtor is required to provide a certification of that obligation which identifies the support recipient and provides a means for the...

    If your intent is to receive a mutual consent divorce under section 3301(c) of the Pennsylvania Divorce Code, your Wife's refusal to consent is enough to delay the Divorce for up to two years and beyond. There are many reasons why a spouse may not want the divorce to go through, which include but are not limited to unresolved property distribution, receipt of spousal support or alimony pendente lite and sometimes just good old fashioned spite. You may want to consult an attorney and not try...

    You should hire legal counsel. If your Agreement is not through a Domestic Relations Section you can seek enforcement through the appropriate court in Pennsylvania. You can seek enforcement of both payments however, how they will be treated depends in part upon which method of enforcement is available to you

  10. Can I sue my biological father?

    Your question lacks some additional information that would be necessary to answer. For one, did your mother ever sue for support? If not, why? How are you sure he denies you? Have you only been told he denies you or have you heard it directly from him? Most likely you will not be able to sue, however, you may or may not find a relationship with your father. I wish you the best of luck with this.
