My Hubby Has Been Paying Child Support Through The New Mexico Attorney General Since Dec 2005. It Is Now May 2007 And My Hubby Just Received A Letter From The New Mexico Attorney General Stateing They Were No Longer Enforcing Child Support Or Medical Support For This Child. My Hubby Called The New Mexico Attorney General Because Come On We Clearly Thought There Was A Mistake. The New Mexico Attorney General Stated That They Closed The Case Due To The Custodial Parent Not Corroperating With Them About This Case. My Hubby Was Told He Still Needs To Pay His Child Support But That They Would Not Be Taking The Payments Or Logging Them. He Was Told To Pay Her Directly. He Asked For Her Address So He Could Do This And They Said They Couldn'T Give Him That Info..Omg What Do We Do?

Legal Advice? Please Help?
My Mum And Her Now Ex-Boyfriend Bought A House Together. They Had Only Been Together 2Yrs When We Found Out He Was Cheating And They Broke Up.
Mum Has 94 Shares And He Has 6 In The House According To The Title.
She Put In $650,000 To Buy The House. He Put In $30,000. She Put In $100,000 Worth Of Renovations. They Each Owe 50% Of A $300,000 Mortgage
Since They Went To Settlement, She Has Had To Pay Him $150,000 For His Half Of The Mortgage, His $30,000, And He Has Stolen Around $10,000 Worth Of Her Jewellery (Including The Engagement Ring My Dad Gave Her) Which He Hasn'T Returned. He Also Cleared Their Joint Bank Account The Day After They Broke Up.
My Mum Also Paid Half The Child Support Of His Daughter And Paid 85% Of Utilities And All Bills.
He Basically Got Out Without Having Paid Anything Regarding Living Expenses For 2 Years, And Now Mum Is Left With The Entire Mortgage In Her Name And We Have To Sell Our House To Be Able To Pay Him.
Is This Legally Just Or Right? Any Lawyers Please Help
According to what I know in US law, this is legal.
Regardless of how much each individual put into the house, it is a JOINT purchase, meaning it is perfectly legal that they are responsible for 50% of it. The law does not see it in terms of who paid more. Your mom bought out his interest in the home. This is common and will save your mom from having to hassle the ex for mortgage payments. In the long run, it was her smartest move. You don't want to jointly own a home with someone you cannot trust to make the payments. It seems unfair, but there is nothing illegal here. This is very common.
As for the jewelry, your mom needs to file a police report and then possibly see an attorney about suing him. Unfortunately, if she does not have proof that this jewelry existed, it will be hard to reclaim something you cannot prove. She will need to dig up pictures of the jewelry and possibly have someone appraise the value of the stolen pieces so she has something to show in Court. Other than that, there is no other way to get that back.
As for the joint account, here in the States, he has done nothing legally wrong. This is why you never open a joint account with someone unless you're positive you can trust the person. Usually, when married couples split, they seek an attorney first before telling the other side they're leaving. Why? So that way, you and the attorney can freeze the accounts so neither party can withdraw and run. As long as the account is in joint status, banks see it as "joint" funds. He has every right to withdraw as much as he wants. There are ways the Court can force him to pay that money back, but again, you would have to engage an attorney's services.
As far as the child support is concerned, that was her personal choice to pay those bills. Legally, again, he has done nothing wrong. Here in the States, we call that using your mom as a sugar momma. There is nothing your Mom can do to recover that money. If she has no Court order binding her to pay the child support, obviously, she should stop paying. It is not her child nor her obligation. It doesn't seem fair, but that's life. We all make decisions as adults, and she made a very bad one. She won't recover the monies paid to child support or the monies she spent running the household.
So, with my experience in the States, your mom made some very bad decisions and is paying for them. Nothing in your scenario yells anything illegal going on with the exception of the stolen jewelry. It is very sad that you're losing your home to pay him. It is morally unfair, but as far as the law is concerned, they are "even" once the house is sold. The purpose is to put both parties where they started. Without the house, both 50% responsible for the debt.
Hopefully all goes well and you are both able to recover the jewelry.
Social Security Disability Attorneys, Are They Frauds ?
I Hired A Social Security Disability Attorney In August 2009. They Said They Would Open Up My Claim And See It Through To The End. I Have Multiple Things Wrong With Me That I'M Not Going To Discuss, However, I Believe That I Have A Fair Chance Of Getting Approved, Based On My Medical History And Work History. Now, The Attorney That I Hired Forgot To Sign Me Up In August And I Called Them And They Apologized And Filled Out The Paperwork. I Talked To The Social Security Administration And The Attorneys Didn'T Even Send Them A Medical File. I Called The Attorney And They Confirmed That They Don'T Have A Medical File For Me And They Didn'T Send For My Medical Records. I Would Like To Fire These Idiots For Breach Of Contract ( They Are Not Aggressively Pursuing The Claim And They Have Already Made Two Horrific Mistakes ). Is It Possible For Me To Terminate Them Without Oweing Them Anything ? Can They Still Be Entitled To Compensation Should I Get Approved ? Whats Your Input On This Question ? Thanks For Answering.
Disability attorneys do not do ANYTHING for you on your initial claim or your first appeal. If you get denied a second time and appeal again the case goes to an actual hearing before a judge. At this level an attorney can be beneficial (still not required though). An attorney never collects up your medical records. Social security does this at no cost to you. Social Security is required to provide a copy of your file to your attorney at their request. Your initial claim and first appeal are processed solely by social security. There is nothing for a lawyer to do. Lawyers taking a claim at this level are just hoping that you WILL be denied so that the case gets to the hearing level. By then a couple of years has gone by, so if your condition has worsened, and a judge says OK you are now disabled, the lawyer gets his percentage of a BIG backpay check.
How Do Legal Tender Laws Work?
Let'S For The Sake Of Argument, Omit Coins Out Of The Discussion.
We Can Agree All Paper Bills Are &Quot;Legal Tender&Quot; Under Us Law. Currently, All Businesses Are Allowed To Accept Alternative Forms Of Payment In Exchange For Goods And Services, As Long As They Are Non-Debt Payment.
Ok, Let'S Say Somebody Owes Me $100,000. He Wanted To Trouble Me, So He Excercises His Rights And Handles Me 100,000 One Dollar Bills. The Part Of Carrying The Weight Is Easy, The Cost Of Time To Count Them Is Not.
Can I As A Creditor, Demand He Count The Bills In Front Of Me To Prove He Has Indeed Presented 100,000 One Dollar Bills, As An Assurance Before Accepting It? After All, It'S Not That I Don'T Accept It, It'S That I Cannot Trust He Has Given Me The Full Amount In Non-Counterfeit Bills, So I Need Him To Show It To Me Before I Can Write Him A Receipt Or Let Him Get On His Way.
Is That Fair And Legal Within Legal Tender Laws?
The legal tender law just says that the Federal Reserve Bank cannot question the value of the bills you present, not that you have to accept them as payment from anybody. Similarly, a credit card or personal checks are legal tender but you are not required by law to accept them for payment.
However, in your scenario of an existing debt, once the "tender" has been made (delivering 1,000 stacks of dollar bills), he could argue that the debt is discharged. You, of course, can specify the acceptable forms of payment BEFORE the debt is incurred, or reserve the right to reject unacceptable forms, and having failed to do so, you have accepted the risk of a debtor delivering any form of legal tender. You would have the option to reject the payment if it were, for example, $100,000 worth of diamonds.
If you go into a restaurant with an American Express logo on the door, have a meal, then they reject your offer to pay with AMEX ("We only take cash"), you have the argument that the debt is discharged when you have offered legal tender as within their advertised forms of acceptable payment. They may see it differently.
