trying to buy a house
I agree with Mr. Popovich. Also keep in mind that if your ex co-signs he will also be on the Deed. I do not think that would be wise. Good luckSee question
My soon to be ex-husband is currently in jail accused of serious crime. He most likely will be in jail for the rest of his life. We have been separated for over 2 years and prior to his arrest I filed for divorce. Being that there is nothing to sp...
You still have to serve him with the complaint for divorce and if he fails to respond then you will have to file with the court the appropriate documents and request a default hearing. Yes the Court will require you to comply with all the requirements regardless of whether your soon to be ex is in jail.See question
Are you asked to disclose any outstanding court cases when applying for a mortgage?
During the application process the lender will undoubtedly inquire as to potential litigation and judgments against you. Not disclosing it could be a material misrepresentation in your application and be considered bank fraud.See question
My father recently died without a will. I was his and my mothers care taker until the day they both passed. I am looking to sell my parents house and move out of state. Can I sell the property to someone who pays cash on a verbal contract
Mr. Mack is correct. You would certainly want a written contract in place in order to protect yourself otherwise you may find that house tied up in litigation and you won't be able to sell it. Spell out the details in a formal contract, what's the harm? And don't be penny wise and pound foolish by not hiring an attorney to draw up a contract for you.See question
I'm the protected party of an FRO involving my ex-wife. I was awarded $2,500 in counsel fees associated with that restraining order to be paid monthly over 10 months, late payments subject to a fine. Three months in and I've received nothing. W...
In order to do this properly you should go back to your attorney to file an application to enforce litigant's rights. Under that application you could also receive counsel fees for her failure to comply with the Court Order. Speak to your attorney before stepping into an area you have little experience in. Good LuckSee question

If you are in an abusive relationship then you need to take action. You can file for a restraining order with or without an attorney to protect yourself. He can do more harm while in the house then outside. I suggest you meet with an attorney to discuss your options.See question
I rented a room to a person who was referred by a friend. This person alleged that he came home from work to find several people in the house that didn't live there. He stated that he was assaulted by these individuals beaten and robbed. As a resu...
Depends upon how the City of Irvington defines "boarding house" in the Municipal Code. But it certainly sounds like if you rented a room to someone and you didn't live there and perhaps rented other rooms to other people you are running a boarding/rooming house. These are fact sensitive cases. You should meet with an attorney to discuss this matter in more detailSee question
my husband died and the house was in his name only but I live in the property with my son and want to keep the property
Filing an Answer is simple. Protecting your interest is a lot harder and would require consultation with an attorney who handles these kinds of issues on a daily basis. Seek consultation quickly as you only have 35 days from being served with to file an Answer to the Complaint.See question
There was a fight outside a few days ago, on my property. I called the police to get them away, but could I have used a weapon to get them away myself?
This really is not a real estate question and you should post it on another forum. Generally speaking however you cannot use deadly force to protect property and in your situation where the fight was outside the house even then deadly force may not be reasonable. Check with a criminal defense attorney on that.See question
He moved out 18 months ago, and we are just now getting ready to start the divorce. I want to get the house ready to sell, and would like to remove some contents - some of which are his. Do I need to get his approval to do so?
Any property acquired during the marriage is subject to equitable distribution. The fact that there has been an 18 month separation is irrelevant. Unless you and he have an agreement, in writing, as to how to divide this property I would not suggest you throw anything out. You should consult with an attorney regarding this issue as well as others that you may not even be aware of.See question
