    My case is settled and i just singed the realest form to day for Allstate to release my money when will it be faxed over if i singed it to day

    Stewart’s Answer

    If you have an attorney, speak with him or her. Otherwise, an insurance carrier has a duty to promptly pay claims but it still could take several weeks. Be sure that all conditions have been met, the release is often just one thing. Sometimes you have to also dismiss the lawsuit

  • I own 50% of a house; my brother owns 50%. I want to sell the house. Do I have leverage to insist the house be sold?

    For the record, my brother has lived there for 23 years since we owned it. He does not pay rent, but I pay the mortgage.

    Stewart’s Answer

    You can seek a partition through the courts. You should meet with an attorney to review the terms of the mortgage and the deed and go over some other facts including the question of your brothers living there for that duration without contributing to the rent/mortgage

    First order of priorities is to renew that policymakers then talk to a PA consumer law attorney, preferably one with wrongful foreclosure experience (even though this is not a foreclosure case). If the premiums were collected from you but never paid, it could be a breach of fiduciary claim

    Was this a preliminary hearing or a trial. Was the video requested in discovery? Was the issue of the wrong officer raised in Court? You should speak immediately with an attorney to go over these issues

  • Can she just walk in & take what she wants ?

    We've been divorced for 2 years. Her name is still on the deed but has not lived her for 18 months. Now she tells me she can walk in & take everything now. Is that legal ?

    Stewart’s Answer

    Not quite. You need to look first to the property settlement or equitable distribution order to see who is entitled to what belongings. If it is not stated there you need to go to court to have it resolved or come up with something that you both agree to

    Without looking at it, it sounds as if you signed it for the llc plus you personally guaranteed it. Your wife did not personally guaranty it so she would have no liability beyond her interest in the llc

    If it's not law enforcement accusing you, ignore it. If uncertain about your rights consult with a consumer attorney who also does criminal law. Payday loans themselves are not legal
