Personal Property Law Help Please?
Ok Here Goes I Lent My Vehicle To A Friend Specifically Told Them To Bring It Back At A Certain Time And They Didn'T Can I Report It As Stolen? Or Do I Have To Wait Several Days Before Something Can Be Done Legally..Thank You
The answer depends on the specific laws of your state or country, but generally when you lend someone your car, or other property, they are enjoying it under a temporary "license" from you. This is just a fancy way to say with your permission. If you place a condition upon that license (only until X time, only if you do not drink, only if you don't let anyone else drive it, etc) and they violate that condition, you effectively revoke your permission. If they actually refuse to return your vehicle they are "depriving you of the use of your property", which is a form of theft in most if not all states.
Whether the crime is actually auto theft vs. a trespass-based theory depends on your state. Contact your local police if you wish to initiate a criminal investigation.
Arizona Has Banned Public Aid To Services That Also Provide Abortions. Religion Interfering With Politics?
Many Citizens Also Oppose Their Taxes Going Toward Military Excursions And Space Exploration, But No Legislature Even Considers Restrictions On Tax Money For Those Purposes. What Is The Justification For Excluding Aid To Health Providers Like Planned Parenthood Because They Also Provide Abortions? Or On Foreign Aid That Includes Information On Birth Control And Abortions? Too Much Kowtowing To Religious Extremists? The Governor Insists Her Signature Reflects The Views Of The Majority Of Citizens. Is That True? Or Just The Views Of A Vocal Minority? And Does It Matter What The Majority Opinion Du Jour Is In A Constitutional Republic?
That abortions are legal and also that tax money does not fund them is the COMPROMISE between The Christian right and the liberal left. You do understand there needs to be compromise? You secularists seem to think only you should have your way.
Question About Japanese Divorce Law?
Something Doesn'T Sound Right About This. Can Someone Please Give Me A Little Insight?
I Have A Close Friend That Was Married In Japan. She Is From The Us And She Married A Japanese Man Almost 20 Years Ago. They Had 2 Kids Together - 10 And 8 Years Old.
She Now Wants A Divorce. They Went Through Separation Proceedings Already, But They Couldn'T Agree On Who Would Keep The Children.
She Is Telling Me That She Is Stuck In Limbo For The Time Being Because If She Does File For Divorce, She Will Lose All Access To Her Children Because She Is Not Japanese. Her Husband Also Has His Parents Living With Him, So Because Of That, He Would Gain Custody Of The Children Because His Parents Are There To Take Care Of Them. She Basically Has 2 Strikes Against Her Right Off The Bat.
She Says Her Only Recourse Is To Wait Until Her Children Of An Age In Which They Can Possibly Influence With Which Parent They Would Stay. I Don'T Know What That Age Is In Japan, So If Someone Knows That, It Would Be Very Helpful As Well. Apparently, There Is Also No Joint Custody In Japan.
Is There No Court Mediation Available Like In The States To Determine These Things Or Is It That Cut And Dry Over There? Something Just Doesn’T Sound Right About This. She Puts 20 Years Into A Marriage And She Is Just Going To Lose All Access To Her Children Because Her Husband Is A Lying, Controlling And Manipulative Jerk? I Realize Life Isn’T Fair, But Seriously?
I'm sorry that your friend is going through this and I can't give you legal answers but being half and formerly living there, I can tell you that culturally this is normal. My guess is that the Japanese side of the family does not want to lose the children as they fear they will move back to America with the mother. I assume that due to Japanese laws, once divorced, your friend will lose her claim to residency unless she became a citizen so that could cause her to move back home and put the fear in the in-laws. For more legal advice, please see the US Embassy of Japan's page on divorce and children custody. It is greatly advised she has someone who can translate legalese for her.
I cannot verify the accuracy but wikipedia states, "Joint custody of children ends upon divorce. In a divorce by agreement, the husband and wife must determine which parent will have custody of each child. In other types of divorce, custody is determined by the mediator or judge, with a strong preference toward custody by the mother (especially with regard to children born after the divorce)."
I don't know enough divorced w/ children families in Japan but I think it's sole custody only but can have mutual agreement for visits.
Legal Advice On Wrong Age Of Dog?
I Purchased A Miniature Pinscher Dog From A Breeder. The Breeder Told Me He Was One Year And Three Months Old. She Hadn'T Yet Registered Him With Akc But Gave Me Papers To Do So Myself. When I Took Him To The Vet She Told Me He Is Not Under 3 Years Old And More Like 6-7. She And One Other Vet Looked At Him And The Second One Came To The Same Conclusion (Mostly Due To Plaque Build-Up). They Gave Me A Signed Statement. Can I Win If I Take This To Court? I Would Sue Her For The Money We Paid For Him And Keep The Dog Or Give Her The Dog Back But Ask For Not Just What We Paid But What We Have Spent On Him So Far As Well (Mostly In Vet Bills). We Have Contacted Her And She Isn'T Willint To Budge Although We Have Not Threatened A Law Suite... Should I Mention This To Her Before Actually Filing?
Well, this is an interesting one indeed. Unless these vets were board-certified dental specialists (and there are such vets) I don't know that this would hold up in court. Here is a link to a list of ADVC diplomates
If you were to get one of these specialists to give you a statement, that would carry significant weight if you were to sue or demand a refund.
The buildup of tartar alone would not be enough for me or my vet to make such a proclaimation. I've seen young dogs who are fed a horrible diet have terrible plaque -- and that's at 9 months of age when teeth should be pearly white! In addition, I've had experience with some lines of my breed (Belgian Tervuren) that have yellowing to teeth early due to saliva enzyme. Short of having a specialist examine him, it's not going to be easy to sue her...or even demand a partial refund.
How much time and money are you will to spend on this? Do you like the dog or would just as soon return him for a refund?
Is this a large-volume breeder? You might have recourse if she is and you're in a state with puppy lemon laws. If you decide not to consult a specialist, I would draft a letter to the breeder, spelling out your concerns, along with a copy of your veterinary bills. She sold you a dog with dirty teeth, she should be willing to at least contribute to the cost of cleaning them.
Although the breeder may have indeed sold you an older dog, it's quite possible that she didn't... and unless you can get a sworn statement from a specialist to prove your claim, I don't see you getting very far.
You also will be paying more than usual for this dog's AKC registration as it's probably more than a year since the litter was registered. Did your breeder explain that to you?
Well, the ball is in your court, it's up to you to decide how to play it next.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
