I believe my sisters are overcharging my disabled parents

Hi. I believe my sisters are overcharging my disabled parents for trustee compensation. They billed at a rate of 280K/year last year. We delegated trustee duties to 2 sisters, but I would like to revoke this. They currently have refused to provided details of what they are now charging.. They do not provide hours spent, or amount billed. I have informed them that I have revoked delegation, but 3 of 5 trustees are ok with paying them with no oversight or caps.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: arlington/fairfax Va. My parents lived in Arlington Va, and have an empty house that my sisters use as an office, but they live in assisted living home in Fairfax.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My son owns a home on a small lake in Michigan.There is a small curving peninsula in front of his home creating a small cove in front of his home. However the tip of the peninsula belongs to his next door neighbor. The neighbor wants to build a floating bridge across the tip of the peninsula to his own property. He has no land access to that tip without traversing my sons property.both partys bought their homes knowing where the lot line disceted the peninsula.With the proposed floating bridge/walkway my sons access via his boat from the cove to the attached lake is eliminated.Would be nice indeed if this was solvable in a neighborly manner with accommodation of both sides desires but that's not going to happen.What legal recourse is likely to succeed.

Hello,I have been having an issue with someone online. We are both authors and they have been posting some libelous things about me. I was able to obtain a few posts and find the refuting evidence of her deceit via our past private messages.However, she is continuing and I have already been verbally assaulted on my page due to this. Not only is my reputation being tarnished, but that of my novels as well.I wanted to pursue a libel suit or at least obtain and cease and desist order of some kind. Is that at all possible?Also, she lives out of the country.Thank you.

I put up a surveillance camera on my property because my neighbor has repeatedly on a daily basis spraying black flag propane insecticide fogger, which is extremly dangerous and she sprays 4-5 x a day, so we are trying to catch her doing this and we even installed a privacy fence that costed us over $12,000.00. She called the police because she said my cameras were catching her garage window on my camera, the police office made me show him what was on my motion activated game camera that was facing our side of our property at our privacy fence, when I showed him the video it clearly showed that my camera was not recording in her garage window it only caught slightly out of focus her garage window, no other house windows, he made me take down my game camera, I put an arlo on my property facing my fence which is motion activated as well, she called the cops again claiming I was her windows, her property sits about 8-10 feet higher then my property and I live below grade our property line actually extends up the hill where our privacy fence is and we have 2ft of proeprty on the other side of the fence, the office made me take him into my house to show him on my computer the video of the arlo once again, no pictures of her windows, only my fence. Was it legal for the officers to do this without a search warrant and make me take down my cameras, and what can I do regarding this neighbor, I have 4 doctors who have confirmed my lung problems are due to chemical exposure am in the process of getting more test done, I do not have asthma, as I am seeing a special asthma allergist doctor who specializes in chemical exposure, what can I do to get her to stop spraying these pesticides in my yard officers tell me I need video proof even though I have two witnesses to the smell coming severely into my yard our privacy fence is over 352 square feet long? I live in Berks County PA, Bernville, PA 19506

Friended a girl on the app "mocospace" profile said that she was 27. Few days later she messages me asking to text her and when she is free she will reply! I'm in california the number she gave me is from Richmond VA. I text hello. Few days later she responds wants pics good and bad pics so I said f**k it sent her a pic and a dick pic..she sent nude pics as well. Small talk led to Germany being 17 f**king years old she wanted to send me a video I thought she was messing around so I played along with it for a minute then lost communication. Wished her well thenbd3leted pics and number and blocked number as well to avoid any further contact.a week later a man left me a voice-mail claiming to be her Christian father and he is leaving work to press charges on me. I freaked called 3 times with no answer. About a week later he calls a giant and I answered. At first I apologize for the situation and expressed my immbarasment told him I deleted and blocked number and conversation and pics and that I'm in california I don't know his daughter and I don't want to. He then said because if this his daughter has tried to overdose on his wife's sleeping pills and had to get her stomach pumped costing 2360$ if I don't pay half of that 100$ out of my paycheck every other week then he will press charges. I don't know his daughter met her on chat site she lied on profile and initiated conversation. It's not my fault she tried to overdose I'm not paying a d8me and I deleted other numbers from them he the called me fromfrom a south Carolina number which is 5 and a half hours from Richmond? Is this a scheme? Should I even worry? Please help

We are in need of assistance with a criminal law harassment

Hello, we are in need of assistance with a criminal law harassment issue. There is a man and his mother who claim that the man is the illegitimate son of my father and his mother (my father denies that this is true). The man is trying to blackmail us into pressuring my father into having a DNA test performed on my father or he will release an embarrassing broadcast through a radio show. We would like to avoid the release of the broadcast/communications to outside parties of course but we are especially concerned that the man is unstable based on his behavior (blackmailing us, threatening posts through Facebook, etc.).My sisters and I sent a cease and desist letter to the man and his mother via our lawyer. The letter explicitly stated that the man and his mother are not to contact us under any circumstances.The letter also warned the man that any communications to us or via any media posts will be met with harsh repercussions. After receiving the letter the man called our lawyer our lawyer reiterated to the man that he is not to communicate with under any circumstances. Our lawyer told the man that will not agree to have a DNA test performed on my father.Today the man and his mother showed up unannounced at my parents house (after receiving the cease and desist letter) My parent's home attendant called my sister to inform her about the visit and my sister immediately went to my parents' house and asked the man and his mother to leave the premises (they were sitting outside on the stoop). The man then told my sister after leaving that "Now everyone will know":Here are our questions:1) What recourse do we have to stop the man from visiting my parents's home or contacting them by phone. We are concerned about our parents safety as they are elderly (they are in their early eighties) and are in poor health and have memory issues (my father has dementia and my mother's memory is very poor as well). We also want to prevent the man and his mother from contacting us as well.2) What recourse do we have to stop the man from broadcasting his allegations through the radio station or through social media?3) Can the man somehow compel my father to take a DNA test? My father has already denied fathering the man.4) On a related note, our lawyer advised us to avoid going to court if possible as it may expose us to potentially being subjected to a DNA test to defend ourselves. In addition, they lawyer advised us that it would be difficulty to rebut the allegations given my father's dementia. That being said is there any legal way to stop this man without subjecting us to a possible DNA test?We need to stop this harassment from this man and his mother as soon as possible. We do not want to keep our parents cooped up in their home to avoid potential contact with the man and his mother. My parents enjoy sitting outside on their stoop of their home and we do not want them to ave to change their lifestyle out of fear of contact with the man and his mother.Please advise on the above questions. Incidentally, the alleged fathering happened 50 years ago (the man is now 50 years old). The mother's motivation is money. She actually left my sister a voicemail stating that she wants to be financially compensated for the fathering of her son.Thanks,

I have a question, I think I'm being harass by a guy in the military and I've been getting these text talking about I am involved in a money laundering thing cause this guy I met on a dating site and he wanted to send his belongs to me cause we weree supposed to be having a relationship and when he said he sent the package somebody else said I needed to comr up with 1250 dollars for this package to come to my residence and I told him I wasn't going to do it, so I haven't heard anything from this person in months and I get a text today that the FBI was coming to get me, they said if I sent them the 1250 that they were going to send the package to me and I told them that I didn't want the package and nothing to do with him, so if I was supposed to be involved in money laundering why would they want me to pay the money and still send the package wouldn't the FBI would have came after me already?
