    My ex is taking me to court for a change of custody on Sept 2nd. I have yet to be served but I know of the date, my ex knows I know when the court date is but I still haven't been served. Do I need to appear for the court date or let it run its co...

    Not a bad idea to show up. While non-service can be an issue in any civil case...you also never know what could happen if you don't show. You know about it...it's a good idea to show up. Also, it's a good idea to consult a lawyer that may be able to help you out.

  • Do I need to let my car get repossessed when it's appraised for $14000 less then I owe?

    My wife bought a new car 2 years ago. First time buying a car. The dealership pulled one over on her. 23% APR and $500 a month payments. And had her feeling like she got a good deal. But we've tried everything to get out from under the car but not...

    Bennett’s Answer

    Unfortunately you are under water on the car. Unless you continue to make the payments on time, the lien holder of the car could repossess the car if you stop paying. You could opt to voluntarily turn in the vehicle to the creditor and they may forgive any deficiency. You could file bankruptcy in which the case the car would likely be returned to the creditor. Problem is, no matter what you do will negatively effect your credit. If you feel like the dealer pulled one over - then consult local counsel to review your contracts and paperwork before making any future decisions.

  • Will someone please tell me the first step to take to transfer a custody order from Maryland to Delaware?

    My daughter's "mother" moved her out of MD to DE 4 years ago, without my permission or the courts. VERY long story, but I moved to VA to be closer to my daughter the FIRST time she was moved 3 hours away from me, where I still reside because I can...

    Bennett’s Answer

    You need to direct this question to an attorney from Delaware for the specific procedure. But Delaware is a member of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act and should recognize court orders from Maryland. However, local counsel would be able to advise you how to specifically get the ball rolling.

    Bennett’s Answer

    Yes. The subsequent creditor can repossess a vehicle in default. But they must still comply with the laws regarding such.

  • Would a letter from a lawyer to Property Management Company be sufficient in this case?

    Bennett’s Answer

    You are perfectly in your right to mail a demand letter making your request and even threatening civil legal action. Sometimes demand letters work - and they usually work better when they come from an attorney. Consult local counsel to determine your rights in the situation.

  • What are my rights when it comes to this situation?

    I am leasing a house ( for past 2.5 years) and the lease will end in 2 months. The owner wants his real estate guy to come in and take pictures. I do not want my belongings, ie, furniture, etc. photographed and placed on the internet realty site...

    Bennett’s Answer

    What does your lease say about this? That would determine what your rights are. Two months probably isn't unreasonable. The landlord is allow to enter your home for other reasons with proper notice. Perhaps just a discussion about your concern with the pictures would solve the problem?

    Bennett’s Answer

    The terms of the purchase contract would control the situation. If you haven't paid the bill as promised, then they could repossess the car.
