Q. I need to know which form to use to file a response to a petition to vacate arbitration award (ADR-106).
A: a response is not a form. you have to write out a response on pleading paper using legal authority. you usually have to file a response within 10 days of their petition. so get this done asap. you can file a separate petition to confirm arbitration award and you probably need to do that at this point.
Q. The PMI rate on my loan is higher than what is stated on my Final Closing Statement. Why did it raise and what can I do?
A: You may want to discuss this first with your real estate broker/ loan officer regarding this issue to get a better understanding of what you signed and what you are receiving now before you have to pay an attorney to review your paperwork and determine whether you have a legal case.
Q. Do I have to let her live in the house I have worked so hard on? Her drug use and actions are unacceptable...
A: You can offer to buy her out of her share of the property. If she doesn't accept, you may have to hire a real estate attorney to do a partition action which will either force a buyout or sale of the property and the proceeds to be split according to equity, taking into account contributions and payments over the years.
