My wife was representing herself pro se in a suit regarding
My wife was representing herself pro se in a suit regarding a zoning law we were supposedly violating on property we own in a nearby town. The property is in my wifes name, so she was the sole defendant, but the alleged violation was regarding my business.When my wife and the town were entering a settlement agreement, we hired a local attorney (my cousin, whom I trusted) to assist with the settlement. The resulting agreement is really bad for me, and I am disappointed in my cousin for advising agreement to it.That is the background in a nutshell. Here is my real question: My wife and the opposing attorney (the one representing the town) began having an affair. This began before we hired my cousin to represent me. This affair has almost ruined my life. I have been unable to work, sleep or eat from being so upset. I am in love with my wife despite what she has done. My kids are having psychological issues resulting from this. My marriage is on the brink of divorce.Many people tell me that I should absolutely sue the Town, the Attorney's law firm, and the attorney for money damages. Some people think I have a slam-dunk case, and others arent so sure. what is your opinion?My goal, I am embarrassed to say, is really vengeance, and the prospect of winning money from these whealthy entities. Money would be a big help because we have a disabled child who is very expensive to take care of. Money won't make my life completely better, but it would sure help.Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
Are breach of promise to marry suits permitted in New Mexico?
Are breach of promise to marry suits permitted in New Mexico? I was asked to consider a relationship with someone Id dated. We agreed that any future plans would be defined by a plan to marry and specifically intimacy was dependent upon marriage. Due to a distance factor many the plans we spoke of ended up in writing. I was clear that I would not consider being his "girlfriend" unless we also planned to marry. He lived in Californua and I would not consider him without lifetime commitmentI was forced into our first intimacy through what amounted to a non-concentual situation. I was able to repeat the request to "wait" repeatedly during the incident. In my respect I gained after the incident, I was clear this meant marriage and children.I want to see if there is legal recourse sine I did not plan to sleep with this person and hoped to be married first. I had an old friend who'd wanted to marry me in touch at the time of the informal plans we'd made to marry. The old friend from Missouri had also asked to marry me. I lost the opportunity to be with this old friend after the non-concentual intimacy.I've been in Albuquerquie for over a month since visiting the man who agreed to the marriage plan. We had several years apart during which time I grew with my career and found better financial stability to be able to relocate. I never wanted long distance and was dismayed when he went back to California. We saw each other this past Thanksgiving in New Mexico where I was asked to stay with him. I was unaware he shared a house with another female, who called him a "doll" when he would place flowers on a dining room table. She was willing to let me stay due to this room for rent arrangement. Was not happy about a third party due to values we both expressed to follow church teachings on commutment and a general value to not allow firms of cohabitation.I agree to have this wrapped up with the most powerful lawsuit. This has put strain on my finances, private life, family relationships self respect. This man also spoke to my mother to formally ask a blessing. Then he end up in New Mexico cohabitating or renting a room from someone. I made very clear in my writing that engagement or any relationship was depenent upon mutual concent, shared home and marriage. Please advise if you have any thoughts on this now. I respect your opinions. All the best.

An expensive laser machine was purchased from the
An expensive laser machine was purchased from the manufacturer in Canada. It was about 50k...it arrived and it never did what it was supposed to...so...brought it to UPS for packing...manufacturer had account with DHL and it was sent DHL ...it arrived destroyed...tape from DHL on box...no internal packing... UPS said they packed it according to directions...said it had lots of packing...that it did not look that way when it left. The only insurance was the $350 that was put on it by the manufacturers account. Apparently they only insure for missing packages.There was a loan...and a lease on this machine... and insurance all set up by the manufacturer. DHL denied even the $350 because the manufacturer didn't submit the papers fast enough on their end. and DHL in US said they were not allowed to call Canada.Well, insurance paid what was left on the lease...but not any payments already made...and said they didn't insure the loan.Loan company suing for $22000 Never had a working machine.
I purchased a motorcycle from an individual I assumed was the
I purchased a motorcycle from an individual I assumed was the owner. VIN was clear and not listed as stolen. Obtained Bill of Sale claiming no title but clear of liens. Did a Title bond and found at DMV that electronic lien exists. I was given owner information by DMV and then spent 2 days locating owner via online search sites and social media. Owner was not aware of transaction but was ok with transaction. However, owner does not have money to pay off lien and now lives in another state, and the lien is more than the value of the bike. I hold the property at my home waiting on owner to make a decision about next step. I have had the motorcycle at my home for a month and the owner seems in no hurry to do anything. I have contacted many times with no resolution. What are my next legal steps in regards ***** ***** bike since the owner has stated she is fine with my ownership but I cannot tag/register due to lien?
Answers from Two Experts requested: My son's father died last mon
My son's father died last month. He put in writing to me, and so did our PC, that his 403B had my son listed as beneficiary; this was in lieu of life insurance, as he didn't have any. NJ law and our divorce agreement states he was to have $100K life insurance with our son as beneficiary. He also has a pending personal injury lawsuit pending, with settlement call scheduled for 12/5/14. His wife isn't giving any money to my son, and said he's not beneficiary on 403B. Do I have any rights to get money his father was required to provide to him?
