We live in island ny and gave a carpenter a deposit for a

hi we live in long island ny and gave a carpenter a deposit for a wood deck to be built on our house. my husband had a heated argument with the carpenter over the phone and he no longer wants to work with us. he told us the day after the argument that he would come by and pick up his wood in which he had already dropped off since he no longer will be doing the job. My husband said that is fine--he can come by and pick up the wood and also that he will be home at 5:30pm so that he can return and receive our deposit back. He came and picked the wood up off our property but he will not respond/call us to make arrangements to drop off our money. We need to know what we can do about this? we would really like to call him and tell him if he doesn't return our calls soon, that we will get the police involved. But can we? what can we do???

I was in an accident Nov 25, 2015. I was driving down a thorough fare just off INt. 5 in Sac. 95831. I was driving under the speed limit. There are slight curves in this road, it is Riverside and follows the River. I could see the top of a white car, but could not tell IT WAS NOT MOVING in the right hand driving lane.. By the time (seconds) I could see it was not moving, I stood on my brakes, but could not avoid crashing into the parked car.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: It was not just not moving, it was parked in the right hand lane and the driver had abandoned it there.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am in California, there was a police report, which claimed it was a straightaway, which it is not, and that I was driving too fast for conditions. It was a perfect day, the only condition was, a driver parked his car in the right hand lane and abandoned it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: State Farm took this case to arbitration, believing they would win, but because the police report said it was a straightaway , they lost.

I own a small rental house in a rural area. Last month my tenet shot his wife with a shotgun on the property, then later the police found him dead inside the home, a suicide with the same weapon. There are a couple of kids involved who are now in the custody of relatives in the area. There is still lot of items that belonged to the tenets and their kids. I want to be able to get all the property out of the house, but my property manager says they will be liable for theft of items if the right person (whoever that might be) take something that they are not entitled to. Something has to be done. I want to post a notice in the paper for any claimant to show up on a Saturday at some time, take what belongs to them, and sign for them. The PM still doesn't like this. I want the kids to get all their clothes at least.

I think this might end up a Manslaughter case for two people

I think this might end up a Manslaughter case for two people ( if me and my wife end up dying) ?I'm an ex-log truck driver that been working since 1978...I had a stroke last year sometime late in the summer they diagnosed Me with having a stroke in November...Thats when I felt the side effects...Now, the park we lived in we had payed space rent in for 25 years and the rule violations they posted to us looked like a 2nd or 3rd grader had written them,so I didn't pay much attention to them...The rule violations were unreadable...Anyway, I had just put in a 16-18 hour day,I'm tired 7 days a week..on around the 1st of October the park management sent us a 30 day eviction notice...what they was wrong with was not understandable so I asked My Wife to have them come down and explain what they wanted done to avoid eviction, 2 times I asked them to come down and explain...Now sometime in the middle of October their Lawyers said I could come in and sign for an extension till the end of November...They did not come down and explain what they wanted done to avoid eviction so I had fixed what I thought they wanted done...On November 30th 2015, their lawyers wanted to possess my home for abandonment...During the court hearing I was having side effects from having the stroke(double vision)but, was explained to later that we had 4 day till they locked us out the home...On the same day My Supervisor wanted Me to take a DOT Medical physical in which I passed and they asked Me for My Medical Card (old medical card) they were getting a new card out to fill out(Oh good!).Then they told me ,"see ya' later". Didn't tell me a thing...2 months later, "I'm tired of sittin' around". So, I go back to the DOT Docter to see when I can get My Medical Card back and the the Head Nurse say's that I need a letter from My Neurologist saying that I can go back to work, she gets the letter stating I can go back to work...Now, she say's that I can't go back to work for a year from the date I was diagnosed with the stroke...Hmmm, That would be November 17th 2016...I screwed good now...So the moral of the story is, Nobody give a f**k about stroke victims...Now, don't worry about the word F.U.C.K(the meaning: fornication under consent of the King...Look in the dictionary...Now the question...I'm on my 10th month of Federal Department of Transportation...RECOVERY...How safe is that...My wife and i are homeless, because I have NO Finances ...I've sold everything I can to put a roof over my Wives head....My Dad gives me some money every now and then....Were about to be living in a car...I'm sure glad the Federal DOT is making your lives safer. MikeJA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Oregon...the Log Truck was a 2001 Kenworth, I think?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I started filling for SSD in December 2015...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: On My tombstone...write "The Federal DOT killed this Man"

Family-Real Eatate-Landlord-Shared Occupancy Law --> Noth

Family-Real Eatate-Landlord-Shared Occupancy Law --> Noth Dakota!A. I own a mobile home in a mobile home park but I share the mobile home park lot rent payment option with my boyfriend. Are we legally entangled and if so can I have control over what goes on in my own mobile home?B. He stays with me most of the time but some with his folks and maybe a friend. If it isn't a "dwelling necessity" can I demand he leave at any time?C. We are both over 18 and working. I have limitations due to lingering neuritis in my left arm and suffer some relapse with alcoholic disease. He is younger than me and has few limitations but did have a cyst removed from his right knee a year ago where I helped him emotionally and financially. He has some troubling memory of his brother's suicide years ago and drinks alcohol some. Is our legal setting up for grabs because I didn't make a written agreement? And if I now write an agreement but he won't sign can I demand he leave?D. We have no formal written agreement but it has gradually come to pass that he shares in mutual needs like food, electric, cable TV, some minor trailer repairs. But if major finance concerns arise it is I and sometimes my parents that carry the financial load. Example --> need fence put uo --> my parents help. Make mobile home purchase hapoen --> my parents and I shared. New water heater --> my parents gave $800. Planned mobile home releveling --> me and my parents will save and pay. Etc. Can I demand he either share in repair & upkeep costs and he doesn't can I demand he leave?E. He had a car and then bought a pick up and uses one of the two parking spaces I have and parks his pick up adjacent in the street sometimes blocking my car access. Can I demand that he only have one vehicle near the lot we jointly share?F. The other day he said he didn't intend to observe my smartohone but noticed and then read "out of context" my kind remarks to a male friend who has covered my back in the oast as well as got me work. Even though I indicated he shouldn't be checking my private phone and after explaining my "brother-sister" confidant nonsexual connection, he insisted that I not text like that again. Can I ask him to leave for invasion if privacy (without my aporoval)?H. I do 80% of the chores even though I might fall off the wagon occasionally. And I found that he has been stretching the truth. And he has gone days withiut talking to me after a disappointment that he feels I'm responsible for. And he has delayed repaying me $200 for doing his friend a favor. Can I demand or exoect him to do his fair share with the household duties? And if he won't can I demand that he leave? And return the house key?I. All in all our relationship is in doubt. So what is my and his legal standing since I have allowed him for months to stay with me? He doesn't pay me "rent" per se for staying in my mobile home but he shares a joint agreement to pay the $355/month lot fee. He is not on the electric but shares the cable bill agreement.J. Can I demand he leave now or is there a time limit or do I have to give him a written notice, court order and such? He has access to stay at his mother's house at any time.K. Also, if he wants to remain with me and I say it's okay is that permanent or can I put a time limi?L. And can I demand some pay for my mobile home cost, maintenance and repair?
