I need your opinion please. My wife and I legally adopted our granddaughter this year. Our daughter, the mother of the child, signed off on her rights to the child. The father had his rights terminated in kansas court on 10/2018. Our question is, do the paternal grandparents have any rights to our adopted child since their son's rights were terminated and we are the legal parents? We heard through the grapevine that they have hired an attorney and are going to take us to court for visitation rights. Is this a bluff on their part? We have actually been letting them see our daughter every several weeks for 3 to 4 hours on a saturday or sunday. If they're taking it to this level, and they don't actually have any rights, they'll never see her again.
I am disabled and have a special needs trust, but no will or plan for who will be recieve my estate after my death or supervise if I cannot think anymore. My trustee for special needs trust is in il but I dont think she should be my medical poa as well. I live in ca, but trust is in il. I don't know what state to use, or what I else I need to protect myself. Is a simple will is enough to select beneficiaries & provide for my pets, and what other legal documents I should have? Thanks
My ex-husband filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy and included back child support as part of the bankruptcy. Payments stopped in january of 2018. I need to know how to override this decision and continue receiving child support payments? I live in the state of illinois and child support was included in the divorce decree.
Individual-lease roommate moved out and unlawfully sublet to an outside party. I expressed my concern for my safety to the property management. They lied to me for more than a month that they would take action against this person, told me they would compensate me or let me out of my lease renewal when no eventual action was taken, told me to "name my price" for compensation and they would get back to me; waited until after the renewal date of my new lease, then got back to me with the decision not to compensate me at all. Because I had confidence that some sort of compromise would be made, I wasn't paying the rent. When they finally told me "you get nothing," they subsequently issued a pay rent or quit notice. I then paid the amount stated on the notice in the preferred money order form, and they wouldn't accept it. What can I do here? Can I sue for damages?
