For years I've been harassed by someone in an unfounded matter related to my business; they've threatened lawsuits via email; stalked me & showed up on my doorstep (and admitted it in an online forum) and left numerous negative voicemails. I've a...
It is always preferable to have an attorney help you if you want this done correctly. If you can't afford that or prefer to do it yourself, then start here https://www.courts.state.co.us/Self_Help/protectionorders/.See question
if i cosigned on a car for my sister and she traded the car in and the dealership let her put the new car loan in just her name without my signature is this even legal??? If it's not does this even make the new car agreement vaild and what about t...
If she was the only one with title for the car she traded in, yes she can do that. If you wanted to protect yourself you had to have agreement on that car which you don't mention. You cosigned on a debt and, presumably, that debt is now extinguished and you don't have liability on that. That agreement gives you zero rights related to another car.
In short, absent an agreement to the contrary, you can't get the traded car back and you have no rights to the new car. This is why we recommend you contact an attorney before you sign agreements or give things up rather than after. You will need to hire an attorney and provide them many more facts. You could have an oral agreement that may apply but it is impossible to tell whether that is the case and, if so, what your rights are.See question
I TEACH FOR A COMPANY IN AZ. WE HAVE NEW ICA AND THEY HAVE A FUNKY NON COMPETE CLAUSE. I TEACH THIS COURSE IN CO, UT, AND NEVADA.
Colorado law does allow noncompetes against independent contractors. As to whether you have to honor your contract, depends entirely on the terms of your agreement and many more facts that an attorney would get once they are hired.See question
I was recently told by a manager at Ross Dress for Less, that another employee complained that my "tobacco odor" bothered them and that they couldn't stand to work near me. The employee in question is not allergic, but does not like the smell, eve...
This is a somewhat complicated issue and there is no absolute yes or no answer. The law you are talking about is the Lawful Off-Duty statute (so called smokers' rights law). This provides that an employer may not take any adverse employment action against a job applicant or employee because of “any lawful activity off the premises of the employer during non-working hours.”
This is where it gets interesting. It would be one thing if they told you that you had to stop smoking. That would clearly violate the law. They, however, are not saying that. They are saying you need to take more steps to keep smelling like smoke or you risk being fired. So their argument is simple. They are not violating the law and, assuming you are an at-will-employee, they can fire you for any reason or no reason.
In short, it is not clear. So you have a choice to make. Do more to no longer smell (shampoo your hair several times before work, never wear clothes that you use while smoking, and take steps to seal work clothes away and the like) or continue doing what you are doing and risk getting fired.
If you are fired, then you can contact attorneys and see if any would take the case on contingency or you would have to sue them yourself. As I said, I think the employer has a solid argument yet I don't think that argument is totally iron-clad. If you want this job, I would make the changes or risk losing it and hope you win a lawsuit which you may have to do yourself or pay an attorney thousands (if no one considers this at contingency).See question
I had to pick up my car from a shop I had restoring it, they were not doing the job as they claimed they would and their work was unsatisfactory for the amount of money they were charging. So I told them to gather all my parts up and I would come ...
Stopping payment is a bad idea. Stop payment is not some means of leverage allowed under the law. If you stop payment you create the risk of a demand for damages and attorney fees allowed under the statute. Instead of helping with an agreement you just give them options to go after you and weaken your leverage.
You should get the repair done and have that shop agree to testify on your claims and then try to resolve it with them by agreement. If that goes nowhere, then sue in small claims for the damages.See question
I had an affair. She got pregnant. I signed over all my rights to the child. I do not want anything to do with the child or the mother. Am I still required to provide financial support?
Your decision not to have anything to do with your child is entirely separate from your duty to provide child support. What you signed means nothing unless that was approved and signed by a judge.
The only way you can avoid child support is if a court would allow you to do so and that only happens if another person accepts that responsibility (such as a new spouse). So until that happens, you will owe support as required under the law.See question
I lived in CA and have moved to CO. The trust will be passed to my granddaughter who also lives in Colorado. Should I change/amend the trust to reflect this or keep it in CA?
In your comments, you said this trust is 30 years old. Many laws have changed from 30 years and, generally, we recommend updating and reviewing plans every five years or on any changes to beneficiaries and the like.
The grandmother should speak with a Colorado estate planning attorney to review the entire estate plan.See question

You can talk to your employer and explain that the claims are inaccurate and, regardless, that you will make sure not to make personal calls. Don't make this some sort of petty battle. Just take corrective action and make it simple.
There is no law that is being violated. Your issue is with the people making the claims, if untrue. Remember, unless you have a contract (and those are not common other than for executives) you are an employee-at-will and they can fire you for any reason, no reason, or a claimed baseless reason (like claims by co-workers, wrong or not). In short, you should be careful on how you proceed to avoid losing this job.See question

When someone dies probate must be opened to transfer the assets. You say that the law firm was working for the personal representative (executor is the incorrect term) so that means that the bill is allowable and most be paid from estate assets not you personally.
As to what happened with the house, there is no way for any attorney to know if what occurred was proper under probate without more facts. Ultimately, the personal representative has authority to do many things with the estate assets and, without a review of the entire file, no one can tell you what you did or did not have to do.
Finally, on the age, you are all adults (18 and above) so there is nothing under the law that gives you any special rights because you happen to be young adults. Once you are 18, you have just as much legal capacity on matters as someone who is 50 or whatever age at 18 and above.
In short, if you want legal advice you will have to hire and pay for your own attorney or you get to act as your own attorney and learn the law and apply it.See question

If these tenants have a lease you must follow those lease terms. If there is no longer a specified term then the lease should be month-to-month and you can terminate it with at least seven days notice prior to the following month. If they don't move out by that following month, you would have to follow the eviction procedures to the letter.
Rather than makes mistakes that will cost you time and money, contact a local landlord tenant attorney to do this correctly.See question
