Need Legal Advice? Lawyer If Possible?
Last Year My Husband Sold His Car. It Was Completely Paid Off. Anyways, He Sold It In February Using The Sales Slip At The Bottom Of The Registration. His Parents Were Witnesses. It Was Sold To A Coworker/Work Friend. He Made A Copy Of The Sale Paper, But I Didn'T Know That He Didn'T Go With The Guy To Dol Or Report The Sale. He Left It Up To The Guy Trusting His 'Friend'. Had I Known I Would Have Made My Husband Do The Sale Properly.
So. Months Later We Get A Towing Bill Saying The Car Had Been Impounded And Sold At Auction After Having Been Abandoned. Even Though It Was Abandoned By The Guy, He Had Apparently Not Put The Sale In, So There Is No Dol Record. Just Our Un-Stamped Copy. And The Total Bill Was 2,229 Dollars!
My Husband Forgot And It Went To Collections. I Called And They Said To Send A Letter Of Explanation With Our Proof...Since They 'Sale Report' Was Unstamped By The Dol, It Apparently Wasn'T Proof Enough.
I Want To Know What, If Any, Are Our Options? Didn'T Think Parents Were A Good Enough Witness. We Don'T Have Contact With The Guy Either As My Husband Was Laid Off A Month After Selling It.
Do We Have Enough Proof For A Small Case? About How Much Will It Cost To Go About That If We Do And Chances Of Winning?
If We Don'T Have Enough Proof, Would We Have A Case Against The Towing Company, Since They Didn'T Let Us Know About The Impound/Sale Of 'His' Car Until 2,000 Dollars After The Fact?
Thank You So Much. Please Help.
To Boot My Husband Is In The Military And Will Be Gone Awhile. Will Power Of Attorney Allow Me To Fight This?
You need to consult with an attorney - ASAP - BEFORE your husband leaves. For your own protection, get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get. >>>>>Since your husband is in the military, check out what legal services he can get - often there are attorneys that can/will help military personnel. BUT you need to do something ASAP.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(Don't sell motor vehicles to "friends" in the future. Friends and business do not mix well.)
Good luck to you.

Insurance Monies? Is This Legal?
My Ex-Husband Is Required To Carry Medical Insurance On Our Children. I Have Full Custody Of Them. My Daughter Was In An Accident And All The Bills Are In My Name. When I Contacted The Insurance Company To Ask About Payment, They Informed Me That They Had Cut A Check And Mailed It To My Ex-Husband. He Pocketed The Money, Did Not Pay The Bill, And I Am Being Taken To Collections! What Do I Do?? Is This Sort Of Thing Considered Theft? I Dont Have The Money To Get An Attorney. Thanks For Any Advice!
You will have to take him to court to get the money.
Since your ex-husband is the policyholder, the insurance company can send checks to him.
Usually, an insurance company will only send checks to the policyholder when there is a non-participating provider involved. Someone that the insurance company doesn't already have an established payment relationship with. Since your daughter was in an accident, I'm guessing that she just went to the nearest available provider. (Which is what anyone in that situation would do, of course.)
Your ex-husband, of course, is wrong to keep the money. And yes, it can be considered a form of theft.
If you can't afford an attorney, try the Legal Aid in your area, or see if it can be filed in small-claims court, where you can represent yourself.
What Law Changed Involving Legal Aid Representation?
I'M Wondering What Law It Was That Changed And Made It To Where Legal Aid Can Not Represent In A Divorce And Custody Case. I'M In Arkansas! Thanks!
It's not a question of a change in the law, but a change in financing. Legal Aid is primarily financed by federal dollars & private donations. As those become scarcer, Legal Aids around the country have to triage their services. Most will now only handle certain types of cases. For instance, many will prepare paperwork for non-contested divorces, but will not handle those which are contested.
Joint Custody...Any Avice On It?
My Ex And I Split Up And He Went An Filed For Full Physical Custody Of Our 6 Month Old. We Finally Sat Down And Talked. He Wants To Do Joint Custody. Im Not Sure If I Should Or Not. And Dont Know Much About It. I Jus Dont Want My Son Goin Back And Forth A Lot Cuz It'Ll Be Hard On Him. He'S Only 6 Months Old. Should I Go Ahead An Do Joint Custody Or Fight For Full Physical Custody. I Need Advice.
A joint custody arrangement usually requires both parents to really be willing to work together as partners, even though they are seperated. If your ex is hard to get along with or controlling and manipulative, he may be going for full custody because he still wants to be able to control you through your child. If your relationship is volitile and difficult, joint custody is usually discouraged, as this requires you to have frequent contact. And this increases the odds that you will have episodes of violence or temper in front of your child. You both have to be willing to really work together, without competing or fighting, for the good of your child.
The typical joint custody arrangement usually includes equal parenting time, with times agreed upon by both of you. It is also possible to give one parent full physical custody and both have joint legal custody, which simply means that the child lives with one parent most of the time, but both parents have an equal say in the child's upbringing and in making important decisions like education, medical care, ect.
If you have any history of abuse in your relationship: verbal, emotional, financial please make sure you document that for the court. If you're at all concerned about your safety or your child's welfare while in the care of your ex, make sure you communicate these to the court as well. If you suspect that your ex is only motivated to seek full custody in order to control you or hurt you, communicate this as well. Thankfully, courts today are becoming more aware of issues relating to domestic violence and are more ready to protect women and children from further abuse.
If you are clear, non emotional and make all your points to the court, you are likely to get a full custody order, as well as child support. Also, if you suspect that your ex is trying to avoid paying you support, and is seeking custody because of this, communicate this to the court as well. It is possible to petition and fight your own custody battle, if you keep your head. Go online and look up your state's statutes and read the law. Knowledge is power!
