My 15 yo daughter is being bullied. It has went from school to public places etc. Do I have the right to physically defend her if needed? The other child is 16.
Bullying is a term that is in the eye of the beholder. If by bullying you mean physically assaulting your daughter, and assuming the attackers are also minors, you could probably use reasonable force to break up and active assault and withdraw (i.e. push them away and get out of there). However, the attack must be occurring AT THE TIME you intervene with any sort of physical force or touching. If, or as soon as, the attackers break off, you best not lay a hand on them and withdraw.See question
The judgment was sold to Capital One I believe a few years ago. I live in Travis county where the judgment was. Finances are tight and I am trying to see if there is a way to refinance without having to pay the $5000. Thank you!
Nope. No mortgage lender will touch with that judgment sitting there as a lien on title. The only way is if the current holder of the judgment would agree to subordinate their lien. When you Refi a home, it is like buying your home from yourself. The old loan gets paid off and a new loan (and therefore new lien) is created. In order for that new lien to be in first position, any existing lien (i.e. the judgment) must either be satisfied or subordinated.See question
I hired a RE Broker to aid me in the search and purchase of an out-of-state property in CO. I found a HUD 'as-is' manufactured house and made an offer, recognizing that I could back out if necessary. I recognize the risks of an 'as-is' property ...
Did the inspector not catch any of the items you mentioned? You wouldn't have any recourse against the seller since the property is sold as is. To the extent you have recourse against the inspector or real estate agent is much more suspect. First, you would need to hire a different inspector to review the previous inspector's report and then go inspect the property (preferably without any input from you) and see if a different result comes up. As for value of the property, a value estimate is subjective in the first place, so long as the realtor performed the comps reasonably, probably no recourse there. Also, you could have checked yourself.
About the only case that seems somewhat viable would be a claim against the inspector's E&O insurance, (assuming he or she has such) and assuming that the inspector really was negligent and that you could prove (which is difficult) that the seller would have accepted a lower price had these issues come to light. The argument that "I wouldn't have bought had I known" tends to be weak as it is viewed more as buyer remorse and self serving.See question
optimally, I would like us to tag-team. If that can't work, then I assume I can write notes on what I think should be asked and/or objected to. Please don't assume that because I'm not a California attorney I don't know squat, I am well qualifi...
As Neil suggests, there is probably a way to do this (but not in the tag team way you desire), but as a practical matter, Michael is right, no smart lawyer would enter into such an arrangement. Also, no attorney with any experience will take a client that wants to micromanage a trial by passing notes on what to ask and what objections to make, it doesn't how smart or experience the client might be.
You either have the confidence to deal with the situation yourself or your don't. If you don't, you hire an attorney. At trial, especially, representation is all or nothing.See question
Do I need to add disclaimers that I'm not an attorney.
Depends on what you mean by "legal blog?" Short answer is yes, anyone can comment on the law. The question becomes, what, exactly, are you intending to do with the blog? Are you going to be offering some sort of service or product, are you trying to start some sort of affiliate marketing thing?
The core issue would be whether a visitor to the blog would perceive that an attorney is offering services? If the answer is yes, that would be a problem.
If all you want to do is comment on the law, you can do that. Just don't allow visitors to ask you specific questions and yes, put a disclaimer, and try not to have the look and feel of a lawyer website or blog.See question
The law requires that they make the drawing for the lottery public but this school does not comply with the law and they did not notify nor was anyone from the public present when they generated the lottery results from and Excel spreadsheet. We ...
Just because the law requires a certain thing, doesn't mean that there is a remedy available for the violation. This issue strikes me as one of administrative compliance. I question whether there is viable lawsuit (I don't know that you can sue for a violation). You would start by contacting the school district that oversees the charter school and start working your way up the chain of command with your complaint.
The question you raise is a fairly narrow issue, I think any attorney would have to spend some time researching to determine a course of action, if any. The question becomes, do you really want to spend the money to find out. Start by filing some sort of complaint with the school district and see what happens.See question

My daughter, a high school senior, has turned 18yrs old last month (Feb) but does not graduate high school until June 2nd. She will continue to live with me until September when she might go away for college.
As long as the child support order dictates. I can't speak for CA specifically as to what its default rule is, but the rule is usually the "later" of turning 18 or graduating high school. So, if your daughter graduates high school after turning 18, child support would continue until graduation. Many states have adopted slightly longer periods, so it is something you want to review with your attorney. But, the specific answer to your question should be spelled out in the child support order. If there is not court ordered child support, then child support can end whenever the payer wants since the payment is voluntary to begin with.See question
