My mom is an alcoholic borderline personality disorder. She

My mom is an alcoholic borderline personality disorder. She is claiming that I forged her name on a student loan in 2006, and I did not. While she did get the loan for me, the agreement was that I would keep 4000 and she could keep the 6,000, and that's what happened. She never made any payments, and now the loan is over 14,000. She claims that I forged her name to get the loan and is demanding the 14000 or she will press charges against me. Does she have a case?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Only that she has a letter from me thanking her for securing the loan, and a copy of the 6,000 check that went directly into her bank account & proof that the $4000 went into mine. I thought I could help her by getting this loan together at a low interest rate.

Please read the question in full before answering or I will

Please read the question in full before answering or I will not give credit.I'm trying to escape an abusive wife. She's a violent alcoholic and she relapsed yesterday after 3 months sober, but her abusive control -- how she forces me to stay with her and help her financially -- has been in place for much longer than that. She keeps this control by blackmailing me with knowledge of crimes I've committed. The crime is fraud. I was stopped in an airport about 4 years ago and my laptop, phone, and some documents were seized which to an extent showed evidence of crimes including using other's financial information. I was never charged, but I was put on some kind of watchlist, because I'm searched every time I come back into the US after leaving the country. I have not faced any legal action since. I have not been contacted by whoever took my things since.My question is how do I get away from my wife safely? How can I protect myself from this person who will with enough likelihood while under the influence of her addiction try to give law enforcement or federal law enforcement evidence against me. How can I protect myself legally when she knows intimate details of my past crimes, ones that will surely arouse interest in me if interest had already died down because of lack of evidence? Please help.

My neighbor died intestate and with no next of kin. Her handyman was residing in her home doing remodeling when she died. The police say they cannot make him leave. It has been 2 years now and the property is being destroyed. The man is mentally ill and a severe alcoholic. The smell coming from the house is terrible. The water has been turned off. The grounds are completely neglected and overgrown.Is there any way that I can become the executor of this estate to get him out and repair the damages? I have been searching online for relatives and have been unsuccessful so far.
