I bought a mobile home off of craigslist in marshall nc .00.

I bought a mobile home off of craigslist in marshall nc for 3750.00. It showed 3 pictures of the condition of the home,I requested more and the seller sent (4) more. From what I could tell the home looked to be in fairly good shape. In order for the seller to hold the property till I could veiw it in person he wanted payment in full. I am an over the road truck driver and was due home within a week. I sent the seller a check for payment in full and he was suppose to send clear title. He called me when he recieved my check and one hour later the funds cleared my account. When I returned home a few days later I made arrangement to go to nc to view this property on a saturday and pickup title in person.His girlfriend was a notery. He met myself and my sister in a parking lot of a food store handed me a title with another persons name no bill of sale no address. we followed him to the home to be viewed. The pictures he sent to me did not reveal the true condition of this home. So,I requested the funds be returned and agreed to give the seller 500.00 for his troubles. He stated he had put a deposit down on something and that he would have to call off his deal with another party and get back with me on monday the next business day. This was acceptable too me. Monday came and went. I left meassages and text meassages with no reply back. A week later I get a call from a person that said, I had a mobile home for sale. I told the interested party of the condition he agreed to the purchase,but never came up with the money to buy it. I then get a phone call from the exbrother inlaw that the home needed to be moved asap because the DOT was paving the roads there, The home set along the side of road on parents property and had no wheels under neath it. I also learned that this had been going on for over one year and the person that signed the title was not the owner. On June 27th I sent out a certified letter requesting to resolve this matter,other wise I would have to take him to small claims court. I have never signed any documents or their is no bill of sale with my name on it. He finally text me back on july 08, that the pictures sent represent the home the sale was final and it needed to be moved. Do I have the right to take him to small claims court? Sincerely,Terrie Broussard

I am mostly through my divorce in California - my ex and I have managed to come to a settlement agreement. She is out of the country, and I want her to stay out of the country. Does she have to come back to the US to go in front of the judge? Or can she do everything from outside the US through her attorney?

I turned my ex-wife into Social Security Disability

I turned my ex-wife into Social Security Disability for misuse of the money she received for my son. She puts all the money into her account and does not use the money for our son (medical bills, etc). We went to court and she admitted that she did not pay for half the medical bills which our divorce says she has to and she admits that she gets $265 per month from SSA for Tyler's care but did not use if for that. Now she is threatening to sue me for turning her in, can she?

My daughter, her husband, and my two grandchildren were evicted

My daughter, her husband, and my two grandchildren were evicted from their apartment in Nov 2015. They had no place to go so my wife and I allowed them to move in to our house temporarily until they could get their lives in order. Neither one of them were employed, but were collecting unemployment, Medicare, and food stamps. We told them they would have to pay us $125 a week to cover the increased utility payments and the storage unit rental for our 2 families belongings that would not fit in our much more crowded living space. My wife has suffered from depression, severe panic and anxiety disorder along with asthma and COPD. My son-in-law suffers with depression, my daughter has Crohns, degenerative bone disease, and a couple other chronic health problems. My son-in-law got a night time job a few weeks ago and has had one small paycheck. We have not been paid any rent in over a month and the mental stress on my wife has caused her health to deteriorate severely. Her and my son-in-law are no longer getting along, they have had a couple altercations. I need to know what are legal options are to get them out of our home and possibly into low income housing before it kills my wife. We are trying to get ready for retirement, and want to do it in peace.
