Can a person legally use social security money to buys vehicles and boats the titles and originally put in the name of the adult children on it (the parents name was never on it) so Medicaid can’t take it when they die? They can pay with cash in p...
1. There is no restriction or strings attached to SSI income as to what a person can buy with it.
2. Not really following what you are saying with the titles. Let me put it like this, if John buys a boat, titles it in Jane's name, but otherwise John uses and keeps the boat and John's intent was to hid the asset to maintain eligibility for Medicaid, that is medicaid fraud and against the law.
3. The cash payment statement has no context to understand what you are talking about, so not sure what you are asking with regard to the $5,000.00.
4. Yes, social security income is exempt in the bankruptcy context, but SSI is not exempt to all types of debt. SSI can be levied for debts such as child support, defaulted student loans, back federal income tax, and other governmental debts (e.g. repayment of fraudulently obtained benefits).
I am 71 years old, and have to continue making Mortgage payments to Silverleaf, on a Monthly basis. The financing is at 17%; in addition I have excellent credit, and there is no valid reason to be charging 17%. Are there any suggestions? I just wa...
The most directly route to your desired goal is to refinance the loan, and most likely that will be the path of least resistance. Beyond that. whether you can do anything about the loan itself and its terms depends on large part on when you took out the loan. However, given that the most recent time regular mortgage rates were 17% was 1980-1981, I suspect way too much time has passed to do anything directly (what I mean is issues related to Truth in Lending TILA, HOEPA, Reg Z).See question
My highschool gym teacher recorded(on his personal iPad ) students working out, he said it was so we could watch it and see how we could improve....
On the surface, so long as the recording is taking place for legitimate educational purposes, there would be nothing illegal. Frankly, filming in sports is one the most effective things you can do to evaluate and improve performance. The only caveat here is you claim the IPad is the coach's personal i-pad, that may or not be the case, but that fact, by itself, does not make it illegal.
If you are concerned, have your parents raise the question with the principal or vice principal.See question
I was doing donuts in a walmart parking lot at 4am and got the police called on me. I got a careless driving ticket. The officer did not see me do it and i did not hit anything. Nobody is pressing charges either. There were multiple walmart worker...
You may contest it if you like and see if the DA and officer can produce any witnesses or have sufficient evidence. Careless Driving is a pretty tame charge...it could have been worse (trespassing, reckless endangerment, etc.). I don't know the answer off the top of my head, but I would review the statute under which you are being charged to determine if it can actually be charged against you. Bear in mind, parking lots are private property, not public roadways. Therefore, most traffic laws do not apply. I can't say for certain whether careless driving can or cannot apply in your situation, but that is the first issue I would address.See question
I noticed a credit to my credit card account of about $2000. I called the cc company to inquire as I had not made a payment anywhere near that amount nor was I expecting a credit from anyone. The representative stated it was part of the rewards p...
The reality is, you are probably screwed. As a legal matter, could you do anything about...maybe, but probably not. If the credit was a legitimate mistake, they can do what they did. The main course of action will be to try to negotiate with them to honor some if it since it was a mistake.See question
In 2008 my son was beaten up & stabbed in a classroom at our local area High School. He suffered severe injuries, in which No Medical Attention was sought by the school. He has Autism, and his injuries are still medically ongoing, in 2017. Is the...
Did you get any recovery at the time? Was their an insurance claim or lawsuit for the injuries filed at or around the time of the injury? As to your question, vis-a-vis any personal injury claim, I am not aware of any special, extended, statute of limitation for the disabled. As for any specific, disability claim (like ADA), that statute of limitation is typically 4 years but is also subject to the state's statute of limitations. So, if you are 8 or 9 years after the fact, it is unlikely there is any civil claim you could bring at this point. The only case that might still be viable would be the criminal case against the aggressor, assuming the event rises to the level of a criminal action (but most DA's would probably be loath to bring a case this far removed from the event).
I am going to reclassify this question as a personal injury question.See question
If you sign a contingency fee agreement can your lawyer also bill you for the hourly fees? It sounds wrong but what do I know. My lawyer is billing me a contingency fee as well as his hourly rate for the entire case. I understand paying cost and e...
Even in contingency arrangements, the attorneys will still track their time. That doesn't necessarily mean they are "billing" you for it. Did the attorney actually send you a bill and say "pay it" or otherwise inform you that you are expected to pay the billed time? Or, are they just keeping track and periodically letting you know the time and work they have expended on your case.
As the other responders to this question have stated, it is possible to have a hybrid fee agreement where there is both a contingency and hourly billing depending on the nature of the case. Without seeing the fee agreement, no way to really answer your question. All we can say is that such an arrangement is possible and is not per say unethical. Read your retainer agreement, what does it say.See question

Are you willing to go to court over it? If not, the issue is moot. You have your position, they have theirs. However, since they manage/own the property, they have the stronger bargaining position.See question
I have a judgement with a corporation that had been assigned to another corporation and both have since been dissolved and they have served me with citation to discover assets. Is this legal?
Yes, even dissolved or defunct corporations still maintain a legal status such that they can operate and wind-up. Collecting of judgments or debts is a common task when winding up a business.See question
I am a PI and have a client that wants to have a credit report run on his wife. As her husband is he legally allowed to give permission for her credit to be checked. This is the first time one of my clients has ever asked for this.
The answer to your question is almost certainly NO. To pull a consumer credit report, you must have a permissible purpose. A spouse cannot authorize the pulling of the other spouse's credit report. Here is the code section on Permissible Purpose. You "might" still have a permissible purpose (although doubtful) on other grounds, but the best course of action is to stay away from the situation.
