Legal Answers
109 Questions Answered

Q. Would a spouse using his deceased wife’s credit cards after her death be considered breach of trust?
A: Most likely such action is fraudulent. I am fairly sure that only authorized users may legally use credit cards. Such action may violate state and or federal law. If you inherited money from your Mother's estate such action by her spouse may have improperly diminished the estate and affected you negatively. You may want to consider speaking with a probate attorney.
Q. Can a hoa foreclose on my home for not paying monthly fees?
A: That depends on the specific language in the HOA bylaws and other legal documents. I cannot answer this question in your case because I haven't read all the HOA documents that apply. However, I can tell you that in my experience, HOA's can do all sorts of things to homeowners that do not pay their fees. This usually includes liens on houses, requiring the homeowner to pay the HOA's legal fees, and may also include foreclosure. I recommend you immediately consult with an attorney. Good luck.
Q. Need to transfer a case from Puerto Rico to us (child support/father) never received any document to appear in court
A: I recommend you consult with a local family law attorney to see what can be done to transfer the case. Good luck.
