Most claims for money damages against the Commonwealth, a state agency or authority, or a city or town that are based on the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of a public official or employee must be brought under the Massachusetts Tort Claims Act. (See G.L. c. 258) Such an action would be a pretty expensive proposition. A person may bring a small claim in the District Court generally based on a government contract, a claim against a housing authority, or a claim authorized by some other statute.See question

my ex and i bought the house together and broke up. I am not living there, and I want my name off the mortgage. We can not refinance because the value of the house is lower than the amount owed. what should we do?
Lenders will generally not allow a name to be removed from a joint mortgage like the one you described. Two options are to have the person living in the property refinance (the refinance doesn't have to be with the original lender) or sell the property and pay off the mortgage with the proceeds of the sale and other personal funds.See question

I have full custody already. What steps do I have to take in the state of Maryland to give custody to my mom while I'm in Basic Training, then schooling.
Here are two suggestions to get you started on resolving your question:
First many states allow a parent to designate a "stand-by" guardian. Here is a link to Maryland's statute: http://law.justia.com/codes/maryland/2010/estates-and-trusts/title-13/subtitle-9/
Second, you may want to consider giving your mother a special power of attorney rather then relinquishing custody. The special power of attorney should be drafted to give your mother the power to make educational, medical and other important decisions regarding your child/children.
You should speak to a Maryland attorney about your options. If you have already enlisted in the Navy, consider seeking the free advice of a Naval Judge Advocate.
