Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. Selling vacant lot. Buyer twice told me he had put deposit in escrow, and twice the title company has no record of it.
A: If your contract had a deadline to pay the deposit and the buyer failed to pay, then he could likely be in breach of the contract. Depending on your default provisions in your contract, you could possibly rescind the sale. If he intentionally misled you regarding depositing money in escrow, you likely have a claim for fraud allowing for attorneys' fees.
Q. What are my rights re: succession eviction and disability in the State of Louisiana?
A: Generally, an heir cannot be evicted from a house they are in possession of since they are a co-owner. You need a lawyer to make sure your rights are protected from an unauthorized eviction.
Q. I need advice on what to do next. My husband was killed in a hit&run in Rayne, LA May17, 2019. I'm lost, need help.
A: I am sorry for your loss. If we have your husband’s name and the responding law enforcement agency, we can get a copy of the police report to utilize to file a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company to hold them accountable.
Q. In a BFD, what are seller's rights when it comes to buyer damage to the property & missing payments every month?
A: I would need to review the contract in question as that will control the issues presented. It sounds like the buyers have breached their obligations per the contract. There are also numerous laws protecting the elderly from abuse. If you feel a law has been violated you should contact the local law enforcement and the Louisiana attorney general's office.
Q. Is the Louisiana different now? I thought any sexual abuse of any child under 12 was life in prison
A: Aggravated rape carries a mandatory sentence of death or life imprisonment where the victim's age is under 13. See La. R.S. 14:42.
Q. In the state of Louisiana if you are court ordered to be place in the drug court and he/she is married to someone who
A: I am not aware of any law where a court could order a divorce.
Q. Can someone be charge with possession of firearm by felon if the state doesn't have a gun
A: Yes. Although helpful, the state does not have to produce the firearm at trial to meet its burden of proof. An eye witness or security camera showing the defendant with a gun could suffice. Ultimately it will be up to the judge or jury to decide whether the defendant possessed the firearm based on the evidence presented by the state and defense.
Q. We signed a confession of judgement after we took out a business loan, the payments were daily and our business failed
A: I am not sure what you are asking. Can you please elaborate? In general, it is not uncommon for a credit to seek a confession of judgment in exchange for standing down on collection efforts for a period of time. The idea is if the debtor fails to become current on the debt, the creditor saves the unnecessary time and expense of proving there is a debt owed or the amount of the debt. More facts would be needed to evaluate your specific scenario to see if you have any available defenses.
Q. How do i get my mail? Or can i press charges against her for keeping my mail.
A: I suggest you call the post office and give them a forwarding address for your mail in the future. As far as your personal mail in her possession, she cannot keep something that belongs to you. If you have reason to believe she is keeping your personal items, you can call the local law enforcement agency to escort you to the property to retrieve your belongings. You could also file a criminal complaint with your local law enforcement agency if you believe you are the victim of a crime. It would be at their discretion whether or not to formally charge her or not.
