My mother passed away. I was the DPA and Medical power of

My mother passed away. I was the DPA and Medical power of attorney. I took care of her and my step father for 7yrs total handling everything by myself. She lived in assisted living. I was just helping and handling everything and my mom was aware of everything. I have 5 brothers and sisters. They were all in the Trust as beneficiaries if any monies were left. There was none. She had a total of 180k amd it lasted to the end. I now have a brother 10 mos later stating he is going to get a lawyer to find out about her money and where it went. Her Trust was in Nevada. I never kept track of anything. No one ever told me too. I Didn't think I had to and I actually was keeping my head above water with a FT job and dealing with everything. My family just kept telling me what a great job I was doing. I am very upset over this issue. My question is: does he have the right to records or bank statements as only being a beneficiary? Can he get a lawyer to investigate? My mom was never legally deemed unable to handle her finances. She was not demented. Aren't people allowed to do whatever they want with their own money?

This is a question about Copyright law. I hope you can help,

This is a question about Copyright law. I hope you can help, because my publisher pretty much tossed me to the curb. A few years ago I wrote and had published a novel, and now fast-forward to now.ABC announced a new TV show coming this fall with Kiefer Southerland, Designated Survivor.It sounded like a pretty cool show, so I looked it up on line.The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the sole-survivor of an attack, and now he's the President of the United States.If you've read my novel, "One Man's War" published in January of 2015... You''ll notice that The Secretary of Housing and Urban Renewal is now the President of the United States after a world-wide calamity.This TV show was approved for production by ABC in December of 2015, almost a year AFTER my novel was released.

I am being charged in excess of my security deposit by the

I am being charged in excess of my security deposit by the property management company at my previous apartment, for repaint and recarpet. They said a key reason for repaint was "mismatched paint", but I never painted. And a reason for recarpet was a "pet odor", however our back door wasn't sealed and earlier in the year our carpet flooded. I believe this is the "odor" they are referring to, as my pets are trained. I just want the excess balance to go away and to stop dealing with them. Should I take this to small claims court, or is it a guaranteed loss?

My question is in regards to one of our neighbors. We have

Hi Pearl! My question is in regards ***** ***** of our neighbors. We have had a problem with stray cats in our area. Our daughter was feeding some of them and the neighbor observed her doing it. The neighbor took pictures of our daughter feeding the cats along with the food on the dish in our shed (which she had to trespass to take a picture of) and then she threatened us to sign a complaint on us with the township. We since have not allowed our daughter to feed the cats and have placed a lock on the shed door so the cats cannot get inside. I feel this is really all we can do to help with the issue. However, our neighbor is not satisfied. She said she has had to pay almost $1,000.00 in vet bills for her puppy because of the stray cats pooping in her gardens (says the puppy has gotten roundworm, etc. from being exposed to it) and feels we contributed to the problem because the cats were fed on our property and still hang out even though they are not being fed now. She is planning on filing a complaint against us with the township for feeding the cats (even though no feeding takes place now). My question is: could we still get in trouble for what has happened in the past? We have never had a complaint signed against us for anything before and are not sure what will happen or if there is anything to worry about since we have made corrections to the problem.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: New Jersey. She hasn't filed anything yet. She told me she is going to complain at the township meeting this coming Tuesday nightJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I think I've covered it all

I live in Missouri and recently vacated a residence

Hello,I live in Missouri and recently vacated a residence following the end of my lease. My landlord mailed me a list of charges that exceeded my security deposit amount that I believe to be frivolous. After reviewing RSMO 535.300.1, particularly RSMO 535.300.1 (4), I believe that the landlord has no claim to my deposit as I was not notified of a post-occupancy inspection in which I had the right to be present. I do not have photographic proof that the damages did not occur, however, is the legal burden on me to prove this since the landlord violated the above statute(s)?
