Was drinking beer and liquor all evening in this bar then someone helped put me in my car is left an got in a accident is this bar liable in anyway
Though there is no dram shop statute (laws to hold a bar liable for injuries when alcohol is served) SC does recognize case law to allow for liability of a restaurant or bar if they knowingly serve alcohol to someone that is intoxicated. Not my area, but speak with a litigation or personal injury attorney as to any recourse you may have as the driver and intoxicated person.See question
The family estate attorney has not given me enough information to go on. I have questions on reliability.
Not quite enough information here. As the other attorney stated, the deed of distribution is to evidence the transfer of real estate from an estate. If you have an attorney, you would want to speak with them to get the information you need. If not, you may need to see an attorney. They may better explain what you are being offered and to get the information needed.See question

I think that if you each live separate and apart, there would be no obligation between you for debt acquired at that time. As a practical matter, each of you should be unable to create joint debt without the other's consent.See question

Magistrate's court provides a couple ways to get someone out of your home or off your property. If its a landlord tenant issue (there's a lease) then there's an eviction process through the court. There is also a trespass process where someone basically gets 5 days to leave, but is used in very specific circumstances when there is no lease. There is some strategy and requirements to using one or the other or both. You should consult with the Magistrate's court in your city and with an attorney to understand your best options.See question
I hired a contractor to trim down trees. I canceled a job a day before it was scheduled. I sent him a text and left him a voice mail as well. When I came home, to my surprise, I found out the trees were trimmed down on the same day I cancelled. M...
It sounds like you have a contract dispute. There's always two options: stand your ground and hold your position no matter what or try to work it out. Many times contract disputes are a matter of interpretation of each other's understanding of the agreement and once each side understands the other, they can come to a resolution. If a resolution cannot be had, there is court. A case such as this is perfect for Summary or Magistrate's court.See question
mothers estate has been open for 11 years now.
An estate doesn't close after a certain time period. If there has been missing information or some requirement that the court didn't receive, it could stay open, become neglected and "sit" where it is. After 11 years, someone should probably contact the court and or an attorney to see what can be done to finish the transfer of any property, if needed.
My grandmother passed and did not have a will. She has one living child and one that passed that has one daughter. How will property be handed out .
Generally, if you die without a will the property passes 50% to a spouse adn 50% to the children. If any of the children do not survive the person that passed away, the property passes to any living children and living grandchildren (children of the deceased child. I hope that is not too confusing...

When an estate is opened, all heirs should receive information about the estate. If you are a true heir and need to be included, you may need to 'sue' the estate to recognize you as an heir. This would be the only way to receive any property you may be due from the estate. Its recommended to get a lawyer for this, since anyone filing in court is held to the same rules and regulations as an attorney.See question

I agree with the other attorneys and this may not be easily dealt with standard court filings. You may need to seek an attorney to help trace the property from your grandmother and then to address how your living uncle was able to liquidated the assets. From what you state here, none of this should have occurred how you describe if the cases were in court. An attorney can help determine what if any case is open to file an action protecting your interest or if a new case is required to recover any funds you are due.
