Legal Assistance/Layers Advice?
If A Renter Does Not Give 45 Day Notice That Is Clearly Stated On The Lease Which The Renter Signed, And On The Special Conditions Form Which Renter Initialed Then What Is The Rights Of The Landlord If The State Rules Say That The Notification For The State Is 30 Days. Which Date Trumps Which? Also If The Renter Emails Their New Address Is This Considered A Mailing Of Said Address For Refund Return Which Date Trumps Which?
The 45 day notice that the renter signed would trump the 30 day notice that the state requires. The reason the 45 day notice would trump the 30 is because the resident SIGNED the form acknowledging they would abide by that rule. As far as the mailing CRPs (rental credits for taxes), they have to be postdated by the 31st of January (at least in MN). AND all the landlord has to do is mail it to the address they have on file for the person, it is the resident's responsibility to make sure they gave the landlord their forwarding address upon move out. Good luck hope this helps. :)
P.S. Check your local laws, I am from MN. Also I would ask your landlord if the clause about mailing in your notice is about post mail or email, because they may be able to swing that either way if it's not specified.
Can An Attorney Prolong Probate?
I Am An Heir To A Small Estate Of My Mother. Basically, My Uncle Is The Executor, Who Has Disowned Me And Moved Away A Few Months After The Start Of Probate. I Believe He Has Some Dementia. In The Begining, He Took My Mother'S Will To The Same Attorney Who Is Handling The Estate That Some Of My Mother'S Assets Are Being Derived. I Believe The Lawyer Is Taking Advantage Of His Enmity Towards Me. How Can I Get This Estate Distributed And Closed?
Often people expect to receive an estate distribution within a few weeks of the death of a decedent, but they should allow more time. In Pennsylvania, creditors have up to a year after first advertising letters testamentary / administration to file a claim against the estate. Bear in mind that it takes time to gather all assets together, pay claims against the estate, file final income tax returns, as well as state inheritance tax returns or federal estate tax returns if required. Remember that the estate is not the only client the lawyer has. In all probability, all of the estate administration may be being done by the lawyer and his paralegal or legal secretary if your uncle, the executor, is, in fact, suffering from dementia.
Some asset are difficult to liquidate, such as antiques, collectables, antique motor vehicles, etc., and sometimes a personal representative may subdivide land in order to realize a higher price for that asset.
If it takes longer than a year, you should contact the attorney or executor who is handling the estate. Probate court judges can demand that a status report be filed and, on occasion, file a rule to show cause why the estate should not be distributed.
Ask nicely at first, if you get an unsatisfactory response, you should consider having your own lawyer apply some pressure.
Freedoms In Law Versus Fredom In Practice?
Everybody In America Is Has The Same Constitutional Rights But These Rights Cannot Be Excercised By A Large Proportion Of The Citizens. E.G. Everybody Has The Right To Hold Political Office But In Practice You Can'T Become President Unless You Are A Rich White Male. White And Male May Change At Some Stage But Rich Never.
The laws are on the books. But due to personal vandettas, opinons, preceptions, the practice of the law is distorted. And society doesn't hold the misuse or abuse to task unless they feel to a greater extent, it would spill over to encircle them. A low level dealer is nabbed selling on his corner but is allowed to walk or just slapped on the wrist because the law wants the guy higher up. It the "I will modify it as I see fit, or can get away with" Imagine you are at a football game and a player inadvertantly tried to tackle a person and his pinky hooks the face mask pf the ball carrier for a second, and did not even effect the run. And the refs flag the play and because they don't like the player who they threw the flag on, seek to dish out the most servere punishment they can. But a few plays later during an interception, a player like a Jerry Rice that most like, deliberately snatches the face mask of a player, snapping his neck around, to save a touchdown. Then having the refs either not flag the infraction or if they threw the flag, picked it up, and said "no foul happened", or gave only a 5 yard penalty. How much respect do you think people would have for the officiating or the intergrity of the game? It will be like you can cheat all you wnat if the refs like you and if they don't, you can have the refs rob you of the game by whistling bogus penalties. If you want to have integrity of the law, you carry it out to the letter EVEN if by doing so, you have to allow some people you know are guilty to remain free until you can get better evidence against them. Not just get it by allowing some small fish to walk or offering him a deal to get him to drop a dime.
Should I Get A Lawyer For My Personal Injury?
My Fiance' & I Were Rear-Ended Monday By Someone Exceeding The Speed Limit By 80Mph. We Were Going About 15 Mph (Just Pulled Out And Got Straight In The Road) The Other Person Was Doing 125 Mph When We Were Hit. It Of Course Totaled My Car And Unfortunetly The Other Driver Did Not Survive. I Still Owe About $1600 On It So I Am Sure I Will Get That Much For It. Their Insurance Company Took Fault Of Course & Got Me A Rental Car For 70 Days. I Went To Er That Night & All X-Rays Were Ok. I Was Released W/A Cervical Strain & A Thoracic Strain & A Knee Strain. I Have Only Slept Maybe 8 Hours Total In 4 Days, Everytime I Close My Eyes I See The Accident, I Am Working B/C I Can'T Afford To Stay Out But My Production Is Going Down Hill B/C I Can'T Focus. My Neck Pain Is Getting Worse & My Back As Well. I Went To Doctor Yesterday & He Basically Said I Had Strains & Muscle Spasm That Should Go Away. He Gave Me Anti-Inflamtory Meds & Something To Help Me Sleep But That Hasn'T Worked Yet,
Insurance adjustor (bodily injury) here:
Let's start with the damage to your vehicle. If your vehicle was a total loss, do not assume that you will get at least $1600 (the amount you owe on it). The other carrier only owes you the Actual Cash Value of the car that was totalled. If the vehicle was a Geo Metro worth $400, you will only get $400. The rest of the payoff amount will come out of your pocket. Whatever the value of the vehicle, the insurance company is obligated to pay off your loan first. If the auto damage settlement does not cover the repayment of the loan, you must pay the rest. If it does, the amount of settlement over and above the payoff will be sent to you. If you do not agree with the settlement offered by their carrier, you can make a collision claim on your policy if you have that coverage. More often than not, your carrier will value the car higher than the other driver's. You will be liable for the deductible on your collision coverage, but if the other carrier has already accepted liability you should get that back. Your insurance company will send the bill to the other company in what's called a 'subrogation' action, so don't worry about your rates. They won't go up. The advantage of using your collision coverage is that your policy should have an appraisal clause. If you don't agree with the value your own company assigns to the car, you can invoke that clause and hire your own estimator to value the car. You do not have that right when you deal with the other insurance company. You can settle your auto damage claim separately from the bodily injury, and it most cases it's advised. One thing that's odd is the fact that the other insurance company had you in a rental for over two months. While they are legally obligated to provide you with a vehicle similar to the one that was hit, they are only obligated to do so until your car is fixed or, in the case of a total loss, a loss settlement has been OFFERED. The minute they make an offer, whether it is fair or not, they can pull the rental out from underneath you. That gives you incentive to settle quickly, just make sure you don't get taken to the cleaners.
On the injury side, things get much more complex. In most municipalities, you only get ONE shot at settling your injury claim. In exchange for the check, the insurance company will require that you sign a Release of All Claims. Once you sign that release, you cannot get a penny more from the insurance company and you cannot sue the estate of the other driver. Be sure that you have all of your bills in before you settle!
Your physical injuries sound fairly common for a rear-ending accident. I would imagine you being sore for a while, but eventually everything should heal. If it doesn't be sure to go back to the MD and request additional testing for cervical bulge or other disc problems.
My advice on attorneys is this: don't take advice from ANYONE as to whether or not you should hire an attorney. Most people are either unqualified to offer an opinion, have an agenda, or both. Only YOU and your family can make that decision for yourself. I can tell you that there are ups and downs to attorneys in auto accidents. Attorneys provide you with a safety net. When you hire one, they will become your representative to the insurance company of the other driver. The claims person CANNOT contact you. That relieves stress in many people. Also, the attorney will not let you make a serious blunder, since they will be handling the whole thing. On the downside, attorneys often require 40% or more of the settlement as their fee. Also, hiring an attorney does not put the fear of God into insurance companies. Having legal representation does not guarantee you more settlement money. I've seen good attorneys get much, much more that the claimant could have and I've seen bad attorneys settle for less than we were willing to offer the claimant before they were represented. No attorney wants to litigate these issues, so they're really just a negotiator on your behalf. You need to balance the concerns you have about negotiation with the possibility that you could receive substantially less in a settlement after the fees are paid.
The key to getting money on your claim is knowing what drives an insurance companies evaluation. Cervical strain, thoracic strain, and knee strain are minor injuries. Settlements vary by jurisdiction, but you could expect medical bills plus a few hundred dollars in 'inconvenience' for each injury. It sounds like your largest medical trouble, and the driving force to your claim, is the psychological effect the accident had. The key to treatment and reimbursement is to be sure that the doctor you see is QUALIFIED to handle it. My guess is that the insurance company will argue that an MD of almost any sort is not qualified to diagnose and treat something like Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. You need to get immediately to a psychologist or psychiatrist for help with your mental anguish. Have them fully document EVERYTHING. Even then, it will be a challenge, as something as nebulous as 'mental anguish' is highly contestable due to the number of unscrupulous people that claim it.
Dirvorce, Where Can I Get Free Divorce Forms. So That It Can Be Filled By Myself? ?

You can got to the court house and ask the clerk what forms you need to file for a divorce, they have to give them to you, they can't give you legal advise but they will give you the forms you need to fill or tell you where to get them. The papers themselves are free... it is the filing fee that costs money. If you think it will be done in an agreeable way that is the best way to go. Otherwise, is there a legal aid in your area? Some states have them so they can assist you as well
Is There An Intelligent Database For Lawyers?
For Example, The Lawyer Could Enter A Query Such As &Quot;What States Have Long-Arm Statutes Which Apply To Tax Cases&Quot; And The Database Would Analyze That Question And Come Up With A List Of States, And An Explanation Of The Logic Used For Deciding Which States To Include In The List.
I have never heard of such a database. There are a lot of law sites, but I have never found one that answers questions and explains the reasoning.
