Q. Can I collect my deceased ex husbands SS Benefits
A: You cannot collect his benefits until you reach retirement age if you are not disabled.
Q. Why should I do if my parent ssi have been put in our joint account without my knowledge and I've been spending it
A: You are going to have to pay it back. It's best to contact them and inform them of your parent's death and come up with a plan to back the amounts you spent you were not entitled to receive.
Q. My ? Is I was indicated on ssi frund in texas I was held liable for back pay plus had to do 5 years probation the judge
A: Are you asking whether you can do something about a federal judge making you pay back money you received from social security that you never should have received? The answer is no. You were required to pay back the money you should have never received.
Q. what are our visitation rights for our grandson
A: Unfortunately, you do not have any legal rights (that a court can order) unless your child (the grandchild's parent) had died or is incarcerated. If your own child is denying you visitation, the court is powerless to order visitation. A non-parent can obtain custody of a minor child but only in extreme circumstances where the child is in danger (no the lesbian relationship alone will not qualify).
Q. My step son that I have raised since he was 9 years old. Now 30 years old is in a medically induced coma.
A: I am very sorry for your step son's situation. Unfortunately, it is too late to consider a "medical power of attorney." A medical power of attorney is something you set up to deal with this situation before it happens. Given your step sons age, I am assuming this was not anticipated and he probably did not think he would ever need someone else making medical decisions for him because he was incapacitated. Since he was likely silent on who should make medical decisions on his behalf, normally the closest living relative is allowed to make medical decisions in these situations. Some hospitals require a court order before life ending measures are taken when the patient is incapacitated. I know these fights happen often between parents and spouses but I do not know enough about this area of the law to know whether you would have the same rights as a "blood parent" in this situation. I would call a few attorneys to see if they do this kind of work regularly or know someone who does. I think you need an attorney that specializes in this kind of law, not someone who does a little of everything.
Q. I have a bad back and doctor says I should be able to work, but can't find work because of it. Can I still get SSI?
A: Social Security Disability is not about whether you are able to find a job. It is about whether you can perform the duties of any job. If your own doctor says you can work, you will have a hard time winning a disability case before the Social Security Administration.
Q. I am not the seller I am the buyer.
A: I am not sure what you are asking. I am not aware of any requirement that a mortgage company guarantee release of a mortgage (especially if it's not paid off) on a bond for deed contract. You can certainly agree to assume a mortgage under a bond for deed and it's part of the negotiation between the parties (price paid, etc.) I am also unsure of the effect of the bankruptcy on your rights under the bond for deed contract because bankruptcy throws a wrench into everything. Did you get notice of the bankruptcy filing? How long ago was the bankruptcy filing? It is possible, under perfect circumstances, your bond for deed contract has been nullified and any damages claim you may have for its violation discharged.
Q. Can the Seller in a Bond for Deed file Chapter 7 within 3 months of agreement?
A: How did you manage to "sell" property on a bond for deed contract that you do not own. Aside from those problems, let's assume you are the legitimate seller on a bond for deed contract. If you file Chapter 7, the trustee would likely be very interested in seizing that asset and selling it or collecting the money from the buyer. It has to be listed as an "executory contract" and is quite frankly a very attractive asset that a Chapter 7 debtor would typically lose.
Q. Does Louisiana law require drivers to carry collision and comprehensive (full coverage) on a leased vehicle?
A: I am not sure if Louisiana law requires it but I am willing to bet the rental car agency requires it as a condition of renting their $15,000+ vehicles, in case you wreck it. Most people do not have $15,000+ lying around and the rental car agency is within its rights to protect itself and its investments.
