The apartments in which I reside are older. They were built in the 1960's. I live in a unit that hasn't been upgraded in a very long time. My oven and stop are the originals. I've resided her since July 2015 and seen the management company gut and...
Yes, the owner can upgrade units as they become vacant, and can increase the rent when leases renew, whether or not that unit has been upgraded. If you don't think the place is worth the rent they're charging, you should find another place to rent.See question
my spouse has a friend living in the house. I do not live there but now I have problems with my spouse. I want the tenant or friend to be moved out. The house is in harris county. What is the process to through him out?
If they're a tenant (some agreement to pay rent), they'll need to be in default of the agreement, you'll need to give them at least a 3 day notice to vacate, and then file an eviction action in the Justice of the Peace court.
However, often in these cases, the "friend" is just a guest. Guests don't have to be evicted, they can just be told to leave. If they don't cooperate, their things can be put outside, and the locks changed.See question

A common law marriage requires 1) living together, 2) an intention to be married, and 3) holding yourselves out as married. It's not clear from your question whether there was any intention, but a joint tax return could be holding yourselves out as married. If you have a common law marriage, you'll want to get divorced when you break up, so make sure there is no more community property acquired, and to determine whether you owe any child support.
Assuming that there is a common law marriage, the next step would be to determine when it started, so that you can determine whether the house and/or truck are community property (acquired after marriage) or separate property (acquired before marriage). The court will make an equitable division of the community property (usually about 1/2 to each) and award any separate property to the spouse that it belongs to. Child support can only be required if you're a parent of any of the children, and you haven't been married long enough for her to get any alimony. None of this depends on whether she has a car or not.
You need to gather your information and see a family lawyer in your area to get a better understanding of your situation.See question
I have been having issues with my neighbors about them attempting to gradually try to build things on my lots... I was going through my past year deeds and recognized that XGHS examption is stated on my past deeds but not my current few tax deeds..
First, you only receive a deed when you purchase property - it's not an annual thing, and won't come from the County Tax Assessor.
I suspect you're talking about your property tax bill, which is issued annually. This abbreviation may be some type of exemption. Contact the tax assessor. give them the property tax account number, and ask them about this exemption and whether you qualify for it.See question
The company I'm working for as an "independent contractor " told me I would not get a 1099 unless I purchased 5,000 worth of products, but I made over $600 in one month what should I do?
1099s are issued by the company making the payment, not the company receiving the payment, and even if you don't get a 1099, your income will be taxable (though you may have business expenses that exceed your income).
What you should do is to get some help with your taxes, so that you can be sure you are reporting your income properly, and getting appropriate deductions for your business expenses. You may be able to do this inexpensively at one of the tax services, such as Liberty or H&R Block. TurboTax won't help unless you understand what needs to be done.See question
My business is an after school program for elementary aged kids. I want to register it as an LLC but am unsure if I should attempt to do this myself. I know there are sites to do this for me for a fee but is that the best option? If I hired an att...
Mr. Lautin is correct. You can certainly register the LLC yourself using one of these sites, but that's not all that's required. You need to determine whether an LLC is the best entity for you, gain an understanding of how to maintain that entity and avoid personal liability (I sue people on a regular basis that set up an entity but don't use or maintain it properly), and the accounting and tax issues involved. I've seen lots of businesses make ruinous mistakes which would have been easy to avoid if they had only talked to a lawyer first. The cost of doing this with a lawyer is a small fraction of the cost of doing it wrong.See question
I just got my rent statement yesterday (3/14/17) and I paid last month's rent in full and even have the statement and money order receipts to prove it; however, I have an unexplained "previous balance" of $50. The management dislikes me and I hav...
I suggest you start by asking them what the $50 charge is. It's possible that the problem started with the fire, since you're responsible for the damage to the unit. It's not clear from your question what the damage from the fire is, but there are procedures for handling repair issues, and they can be found here: http://www.texastenant.org/repairs.htmlSee question

No, you can't file a lien against him, but you could try suing in the Justice of the Peace court. If you get a judgment, your abstract of the judgment can be recorded and becomes a lien against any non-exempt property he may have.See question

I'm not sure what you mean by "skip the first." If the second lien is not paid, they can definitely foreclose on the second, even if the first is current.See question

Do you mean benefits other than not being tied to someone who's abusive and cheats on you and doesn't support his children?
You can expect to receive about 1/2 of the community property (net of debt) and standard visitation and child support, and maybe some alimony if you are unable to support yourself. You'll probably want some temporary orders in place to give you support and exclusive right to possession of your current residence while the case is pending, and to set up child support. Gather all of the information you can get on the community assets and debts, including copies of deeds, car titles, account statements, tax returns and pay stubs. If you have evidence that he's spending marital assets on someone else, bring that too, and talk to a family law attorney in your area. Some counseling might be a good idea as well.See question
