Legal Answers
304 Questions Answered

Q. We own an occupied rental that we want to sale. The tenant insist that we can't show it between 12 - 3 pm. or weekends.
A: The answer would depend on what your lease says and also perhaps what county the property is in. If those two sources do not provide an answer then the general answer would be "no" you do not have to abide by their demands. But you would still be required to give as much advance notice as possible that you intend to enter the property for the purpose of showing.
Q. What rights do grandparents have?
A: You should ask this question to an attorney in Oklahoma to determine what, if any, visitation rights grandparents have since that state's laws would control.
Q. Can a company you have a bill with take money from your checking account without a judgment
A: Your question is unclear. You can't be garnished without a judgment. But a company could auto-draft your account if you signed up for such a service.
Q. Can landlord keep my security deposit if I was evicted moved out before 30 days where up? Handed my keys in on the 4th?
A: Landlord may be entitled to your security deposit for several reasons. Depends on what your lease says.
Q. Can a municipality,a.k.a.,city be sued for PUBLIC NUISANCE?
A: Hard to give an answer without more facts. Generally you can sue for just about anything - can you win? That's another issue. Consult local counsel for options.
Q. Is there any legal action when a man gives a woman rings as promise to marry, and has been supporting her financially
A: If you are not legally married then you would not be entitled to support after a breakup. Likewise, the children are not entitled support since they are not his.
Q. If I have been asked to pay money to someone or they will show my husband/family/everyone messages implying an affair.
A: That's extortion. If you don't know the person making the threats it's likely a scam and should be ignored. If it's someone you know, you may want to consider discussing the issue with an attorney and/or reporting the issue to law enforcement.
Q. My ex husband had recently had some health issues and is unable to work now. What now?
A: His new spouse wouldn't be responsible. However, he's responsible unless he asks for a modification.
Q. Can I take custody of my biological child if I divorce the bipolar mother?
A: If you file for divorce it is possible to obtain a divorce even though the spouse does not want one. You may have grounds to gain custody of a biological child. If you are attempting to get custody over a non-biological child you'll run into some problems. Consult with a local attorney to discuss and determine the best and appropriate action for your circumstances.
