My boyfriend received a letter about insurance money his dad had. They were trying to find an heir. He sent a death certificate like they asked,and now they say they want proof through a will or probate papers,and there are neither. What does he n...
If the insurance did not list a beneficiary or if his estate was listed as beneficiary then your boyfriend or his family will need to open up a proceeding with the probate court so the Court can determine who the heirs are and what shares of the insurance benefits they are due. Otherwise, the insurance company will not have the authority to decide who gets what share of the insurance.See question
Father of three month old has had me blocked from his phone and is expecting his mother to relay messages between us. I have tried multiple times to reach out to him. He acts like he has no interest in the baby. His mom has talked him into going t...
If the father hasn't gone to court to establish his rights, then he doesn't have any visitation rights (nor does his mother), regardless of whether he pays child support or not. That means that visitation can be on your terms unless and until the Court orders visitation.
If he petitions the Court to establish visitation rights, then you can show the Court what, if any, visitation would be appropriate - to include whether or not the paternal grandmother should have any independent visitation.
In the end, it's going to be a fact-dependent matter so it's best if the parents can work it out between themselves, but if not then the Court will need to figure out what would be in the best interests of the baby.See question
My brother and I inherited property from our deceased father (house and land) that is located in Arkansas. We live in Michigan and so did our father who left no will. We obtained from Arkansas Circuit Court an Affidavit for Collection of Small E...
You're probably going to need to hire an attorney to review everything in order to get good advice, and they'll need to look at what type of claim your aunt is making to the property (was her name on the deed, is there some sort of adverse possession issue going on, was the property pledged as security for something, - there could be a whole host of possibilities).
More likely than not you'll have to hire an attorney anyway to have them ejected from the property, so you may as well get one in at the start so that you can be sure everything gets started correctly instead of having to go back and correct things.
If the property is in Union County, check with attorneys in El Dorado for assistance.See question
We have joint custody & a court order paper stating our visits but relocation is not in there. He wants to move to Texas real soon. If he does I'll never see my son
If it's true joint custody he would need permission of the Court in order to relocate, even if it isn't true joint custody it would be better proactive for him to file a motion with the Court for approval of the relocation.
While the burden of proof will be different based on what type of custody arrangements set out in your order, you can petition the Court prior to the move to ask that the Court find that the relocation would be contrary to the best interests of your son.See question
We have been separated for 14 years she lives in some other state, I live in Little Rock Arkansas, I don't have much money so I need something really cheap
You'll need to show the Court that you have made reasonable efforts to locate your spouse (and that means set out what you did, not just tell the court that you used reasonable efforts), and that despite those efforts her whereabouts remain unknown.
You'll then need to publish a warning order in the newspaper once a week for two consecutive weeks. If you're going to try that by yourself, you'll need to make sure that you read Rule 4 of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure carefully to ensure that you comply with all of its requirements.
My female friend has put charges on me saying that I slashed her tires and keyed her car. I don't know what proof there is. She said she would drop the charges. But from what I understand that is not up to her. It's up to the county prosecutor. My...
Obliviously, how much evidence they have and the quality of that evidence will have a great impact on how hard it will be for them to prove the charges. Since you don't know what proof there is, the evidence cannot be evaluated.
Given that there is a possibility of jail time, you may want to have an attorney assist you and review what evidence the prosecution has against you.See question
My spouse has charges pending against her. She still lives in the house but I left because it's not healthy to live with an abuser and I could not afford the rent by myself if I made her leave and if she decided not to pay. The landlord asked my ...
The person that leased the home to you is not a party to your domestic relationship, so a Court would not have the authority to order them to let you out of the lease because of the action of your spouse.
If your spouse doesn't fulfill the obligations of the lease, and the landlord holds you liable under the agreement you originally made with the landlord, then you would have to go after your spouse.See question
Am I legally separated if the court has awarded me with Temporary primary custody, and my wife is now paying child support? We've had a court date, which established some of our properties, I was awarded temporary primary custody of my daughter ...
This is one of those things that depends on the context of the question, but for most circumstances the answer is going to be "no" unless you have a decree of judicial separation or a decree of separate maintenance.See question
My Childs father is in prison and my child went to see his step mum and hos brother now he will not come home I have all rights to my child the father has none I set rules for my child and because he doesn't like them he's gone to his step mother ...
Given that you used the term "mum," I am guessing that you are from the County of England, but your question is posted under the City of England, Arkansas - a small city in the U.S. If that's the case, then you'll need to re-post your question in a U.K. forum so you can receive an answer based on English law.
If, however, you are in Arkansas, you can pick your son up anytime. Unless a Court specifically ordered that the stepmother (not the father) has custodial/visitation rights, then she has none. You can pick him up when he goes to school, or you seek the assistance of law enforcement. As a matter of fact, Arkansas makes it a criminal offense for someone to knowingly interfere with custody.See question
Me and my wife just got custody of a 1month ol baby boy through DHS the mother and father both signed their rights over to me and my wife can we legally change the baby's name and if so how and what do we need
You would need to petition the Court for an order of name change, and part of that would be showing the Court that the name change would be in the best interests of the child. It's not clear what they did when they "signed their rights" to you, but you will probably have to provide notice of the requested change to the natural parents. Unless it is in connection with an adoption, the Court will likely be hesitant to change the baby's name over any objection of the parents.See question
