  1. Mom passed away leaving no will.She owned a coop. What do we have to do to be able to sell this? How long does this usually take

    First, you should confirm that the title (contract) for the property is in your mom's name. Did she transfer it to her companion? If the coop is clearly your mom's property, you should open up an estate at the county courthouse, and get yourself appointed as the administrator of her estate. You will then get court letters of administration authorizing you to sell the property. When you find a buyer, you will sign as the Administrator of your mother's estate, thus transferring the property to...

  2. Sdared custody, no child support?

    Yes, of course you can fight this. The father is silly if he thinks he's saving money by apply for shared custody. Getting more time with the child means spending more money on the child. As you know, the parent with custody pays child support all day long (food, rent, utilities, clothing, etc.). So dad needs a wake-up call: Just because he doesn't write you a child support check doesn't mean he won't be spending it on the child. But don't fear: If his only motivation for seeking more...

  3. My son age 17 is seeking child support for the first time. He is a junior at Spotswood High School. Was never married to his dad

    Yes, your son is entitled to child support. The question is, where is his dad? If his father is local, you should file a Complaint for Support on behalf of your son. If not, you can still file a complaint, but you will need some advice about collecting and enforcing the judgment abroad... Call me if I can help.

  4. How can I get my vehicle returned from my exgirlfriend if my name is the only name on the title?

    Give her fair warning that you intend to report the car stolen. If she won't return it after a good faith warning by you, then call police and tell them she stole your car (or more appropriately she is "converting" it to her own use)...and you want it back. If police won't help you, file a civil lawsuit to recover ("replevy") the property. Good luck. (If you think this post was helpful, please click the thumbs up (helpful) tab below. -- Thanks. Mark S.

    That's not all that strange. You have a right to custody or parenting time -- and you should pursue that right. As long as you're not a danger to the child, then you should enjoy meaningful time with your child. On the other hand, you have an obligation to pay child support. If you are trying your best to pay support, you should explain your position. If you are unable to keep up, you should file the appropriate motion to lower support. Keep this in mind -- custody and support are not...

    Sounds like the prosecutor is going to have a difficult time proving the charge if they don't have the physical evidence. Don't assume that it's a victory yet....you need to conduct some pre-trial discovery to see proofs the police actually do have. Call me if you need help.

  7. I am a former restaurant owner. I am behind about 6 months in rent but I was making small payments every week.

    If you're behind by six months, it sounds like the landlord was probably within his rights. You should check your lease for specifics. The landlord may be required to give you notice to quit before barring you from the premises. Frankly, it makes much more sense for the landlord to give you access and let you try to earn a living...but you may want to get a lawyer to re-negotiate the deal, formalize the arrangements in writing and protect your rights.

    Unfortunately, there is a privilege to say things -- even defamatory things -- in a courtroom. Historically, this was an absolute privilege (no exceptions to the rule). In some circumstances, it can be a limited or qualified privilege. But candidly, you will not likely win a case against your ex-husband based on imflammatory statements he made in a courtroom. Even if your case was actionable, you will need to prove that you were damaged financially or otherwise by his words (rather than his...
