Husband and I were separated for 17 months. During this time I bought a house thru fha. Down payment was given to me from father. Husband has come back, but is cheating. I want him to leave. Can I put him out?
In not using a buyer's lawyer when you got the house, you made a huge mistake. That lawyer would have told you to get a divorce BEFORE buying the home. Since you were married, there is a possibility the home will be treated as marital property and he could claim an interest. He may fail (and on these facts you have good arguments), but even if you prevail, arguing the point will cost you legal fees.
Regardless, you cannot evict a spouse. You CAN file for divorce. And, in the divorce, the court will decide what happens to the home, including not only who owns it, or how to split it, and who lives there. You will do best to immediately get a lawyer. This could go exceptionally badly without counsel.See question
If the named beneficiary to a TOD Merrill Lynch account declines to accept the money, what happens? There were 2 other beneficiaries from a decade ago. Is there a line of succession?
It's unusual for a person to refuse money. The answer depends in part on the wording on the account's terms, which likely have language that says what happens if a person disclaims the money (and may say how they have to do that). Depending on the wording, the money may pass to someone else, or be due to the estate. If you have a potential interest in the money, see a lawyer to determine what you need to do.See question
My mother is recently deceased and has an account with less than $10,000 dollars. She has left no Will We have received a check from an insurance company for the difference from a loan payout. Can the family open a POD account and deposit the chec...
I'm sorry for your loss. POD accounts are set up while a person is living. You CANNOT open an estate account (yet), as there is no one in charge of the estate. EINs are used for estate tax returns and certain other purposes and usually can be obtained quickly by fax, mail or online. There likely will be a need for an account once probate court action has begun.
You can do nothing with that insurance check without a probate. A lawyer is ESSENTIAL. You first must determine what type probate to file. That answer depends in part on who the "family" is, if there are debts, what other assets there are, etc.
I am assuming your mother was in Georgia. My answer will not apply in another state.
If your mother was married, her husband is an heir. He may seek to get all or much of the estate, and avoid certain debts and taxes, via a Years Support case. Children also are heirs or potential heirs and may file for Administration, or, in some cases, no administration necessary.
In a few cases, if debts exceed assets, walking away and doing nothing can also become an option.
Making the wrong choice as to filing, or missteps in filing, can be costly. All the steps require court. Absent that, no one has authority to do much, and things stay in limbo. Again, it's essential to get a lawyer.See question

What can I do about what? You didn't say. Were you hurt? Were both parties insured? Was there significant damage? Did you get a ticket? I'll try and answer but those affect what you do.
In many accidents, each party blames the other as to fault. And regardless of what the officer writes, police don't decide fault. Regardless of whatever concern you have you report the accident to your insurer (and the other). If there was property damage only, the insurers will sort out fault and dollars, and car repairs get addressed.
If you were hurt, get immediate care, preferably starting at the time of the accident (ambulance/ER) and ongoing care. Immediately also get a lawyer. And do NOT discuss injuries at all with either insurer as that will hurt your case. If the other party is found to be at fault and you were hurt, you may receive damages. An attorney will charge no fee to consult, and nothing unless you win.
If you got a ticket, you also will want to see a traffic ticket/criminal defense lawyer.
BTW, hopefully you took a lot of photos of the vehicle's locations and conditions when you made the phone call. Those pictures may help your lawyer.See question
I have arrears for child support for 2 kids. 1 is 21 the other is 17 and a high school graduate. The custodial parent filed for a modification and it was granted in georgia. At the time of the modification I was unwillfully unemployed. I would lik...
Georgia arrearages CANNOT be removed (and since interest accrues, as a general rule, an arrearage payment rate will not be decreased, as most are set at rates that take years to pay off). Additionally, and your post is unclear, but you cannot retroactively modify support. I should note that for many years most support orders were NOT written in a way where support would automatically drop when one child out of multiple children reached age 18 for two reasons: (1) the rate of support for 2 children isn't double what it is for one, and (2) many support orders extend past age 18, either because of voluntary agreement or because a child is in school at age 18.See question
Hello, So a few months ago my 2011 Nissan Leaf was hit by another driver and their insurance declared it a total loss. The insurance has paid the car but left a remaining balance of about $1,800 to still be paid on it. Would it be a good idea to f...
Unless you bought gap insurance (a must, but many people make a mistake and don't buy it), you're stuck. The only liability insurance and the other driver have is to pay the current VALUE of your car, NOT your loan balance. That is why car buyers should buy gap insurance as most cars depreciate faster than you pay them off. (If you did get gap insurance, then the news is better - file a claim for the $1800).See question

You posted this to child support lawyers, but actually you've committed crimes, and can be jailed. I am going to try and change the subject to traffic law. Regardless of erors or defenses, it is a crime to miss a court date. You can be fined or jailed for it and there likely is a warrant for your arrest. Your charges were also likely reported to DDS and an FTA generates a suspension, so your license likely is suspended (meaning if you are driving now you can be jailed). Notices of all this were mailed to the address on your license, so you should be aware of it. To get this fixed you'll need to settle the FTA case, seek to have the other cases dismissed and likely pay a reinstatement fee to DDS. You should get criminal or traffic counsel to assist you as your FTA complicated what could easily have been fixed years ago.See question

To be in jail, he likely either committed a crime or appeared to the sheriff to have committed one. Georgia law and theUS Supreme Court required him to have a court appearance within the first 48 hours. If in custody, absent a medical emergency, any medical evaluation was likely ordered by the judge at a hearing. The public defender's office is your contact if your family is indigent and otherwise you should call counsel of your choice ASAP.
A note - you misposted this in part of AVVO that will be seen by car wreck lawyers, but you need input from criminal defense lawyers. They won't see it with where you put it. I will try to move it there for you so you get more answers. Good luck!See question

Without reading the arrears order and original order, no one can tell you (call your original lawyer). I should note that many child support orders do not stop at 18, but have conditions, and also since arrears accrue interest, it may be in your interest to up the payment when you have available funds.See question

Depending on the scope of the problem and details, and the language of the current court order, modification or contempt (or maybe just a strong lawyer letter) are possibilities. Since a case could change other things for better or worse there are risks and benefits to different approaches and you should not do anything without talking to your lawyer. Sometimes the lawyer may see ways to resolve these issues without escalation and court, and sometimes a court may be needed.See question
