Real Estate Attorney Question?
For The First Time, I'M Buying A Vacant Land And Had Set A Deal With The Seller, No Agent Include. I Had Contact A Real Estate Attorney. And I'M Supposed To Give My Real Estate Attorney Info To The Seller'S Attorney So That We Can Start With The Paper Work And Close The Deal. The Problem Is, My Attorney Has Not Request For My Info Or Sign Any Paperwork Regarding The Attorney Services. And Afraid The Attorney Will Steal This Property From Me.
Pay his fee for one hour with a check and wait for the check to clear otherwise secure his services in writing. You could also try sending him an email asking him if he can represent you in a real estate transaction and to provide you with a fee estimate. If he says yes, then write back he is hired and go from there.
I had a slimeball realtor steal a property from me early on. That lead me to sign an agreement with a different lazy and useless realtor. darned if you do, darned if you don't.
Disabled, Divorcing, Can I Ask For Alimony?
My Husband And I Have Been Together For 14 Years. 13 Of Which Married. His Children, From Two Previous Marriages, Have Made Life Hard For Me. But Long Story Short, He Claims That His Poor Relationship With His Children Is My Fault. Regardless Of Facts And All I Have Been Through I Want To Know If I Can Get Alimony. I Have Been Fully Disabled Since 2004. Although I Am Grateful For My Disability Money It Just Won'T Be Enough To Live On. I Get $800 A Month. He Only Pays $78 Per Week Child Support, Which Is Based On What He Used To Make A Few Years Back. Now He Makes Roughly $11 An Hour And Works 12 Hours A Day 5 Days A Week. It Has Been Like That For The Last Two Years.
He Also Ran Up The Bill On One Of My Credit Cards, Not All By Himself, But I Can Prove That What Was Spent For Him. I Only Owe $1000, But Am Not Sure I Can Pay It Off Without Him.
Is It Reasonable For Me To Ask For Alimony?
Vehicle Insurance (Old Beat Up Van, He Has New Car) $75
Medications $50-75 (Often More)
Dr. Co Pay $40 A Month More Of Less Depending.
I Would Have No Money To Live On. Is It Reasonable, Or Could I Even Expect, To Get Alimony?
I Can'T Even Afford An Attorney, So I Don'T Even Know How That Will Go Down?
Alimony is get back on your feet money to keep you in the same standard of living & it's completely reasonable whether you get disability or not, that doesn't cancel out his obligations.
Child support payments need to be adjusted as well, according to his new pay scale & not the old one.

He Does Carry A Full Time Job, But When He Gets Off He Comes Home And Hangs Out In His Shop With His Buddies Still 1-2Am And We Don'T See Him Until The Next Day. Im Tired Of The Drugs And The Drinking And Feel I Need A Better Life For Me And My Son. My Husband Has Cheated On Me, Lied To Me Sooo Many Times, And Betrayed Me. He Has Done The Most Lowest Things To Me That I Will Never Understand Why He Did Them.
Im A Great Mother And A Great Wife, And I Feel I Don'T Deserve What He Has And What He Is Doing To Me.
He Has Had 1 Dui, Been Arrested For Growing Weed In His Home (This Was Before Him & I Got Together) And He Has Also Gotten A Cdv For Hitting His Last Girlfriend. So Yea He Doesn'T Have A Good Past Record. I Could Go On And On About What He Has Done To Me, But I Will Get To The Questions..

Get an attorney. 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.)
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?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is NOT a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Applying For Probate....Deceased In Debt?
I Am The Sister Of The Deceased, I Have Completed The Pa1 Probate Form And Also The Iht205 Inheritance Tax Form. There Is No Money In The Deceased Estate, The Value Of His Property Will Only Pay Off The Mortgage Lender. However, There Is Debt Of Approx £12 000. All His Debt And Property Were In His Name Only As He Was Single. When I Receive The Grant Of Administration I Will Be Able To Communicate With The Mortgage Lender And All The Creditors Fully. However, If I Explain The Situation To The Creditors That Make Up £12000 Debt And Explain That There Is No Money Left In The Estate Firstly, How Do I Prove It?? Secondly Will They Keep Writing To Me Chasing The Debt Or Will They Just Eventually Write The Debt Off. Thanks
I am not trained in probate law and don't live in the UK, but you haven't gotten any other answers so far so I will tell you what I think I understand about the law in the US which is probably somewhat similar in the UK.
In the US, I'm almost certain that the creditors will have to write off any debt that exceeds the assets that your brother had. They might keep chasing you for awhile but here at least I don't think you have any legal responsibility to pay as long as your name wasn't associated with any of the debt.
There might be rules about how you are supposed to distribute what assets he had though so I think it would be a good idea to contact someone knowledgeable about the laws in the UK on this. If you give all the money to the mortgage lender and that's not how you were supposed to do it, then it's possible that the other creditors could come after you for whatever amount they should have gotten.
