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 roommates/tennants who are subleasing from me, have paid their rent and have since abandoned their property for over 15days. Is 15+ days considered legal abandonment?

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.

A judge trying my case is bias towards me by not letting me

A judge trying my case is bias towards me by not letting me bring into evidence the most important photo's and he told my attorney that if he couldn't be ready to handle my case on said date that he scheduled it to be heard on, the case would go on without delay and that he should get another attorney to try the case. This case is based on race and sex, and retaliation claim. There was a KKK poster posted over my name at my job (Sheriff Department) I took photo's of it and there was a letter with the Captain's name on it as well so anyone could see where the poster came from, but the judge said I could not use it in my case to show to the jury? It is my belief that the judge is being bias towards me and he is already set to favor the departments side. It appears that he is also being bias towards my attorney as well and I do have the letter from the judge.

I am the landlord piece of real estate in WY. The

I am the landlord for a piece of real estate in WY. The tenant decided to cut down 4 enormous trees that happened to be right on the property line. The neighbors threw a fit of course. Because their home was under contract to be sold this caused the buyers pause. In order not to disturb this situation and assure the completion of this sale, I opted to pay for the removal of stumps and place new trees in their place at an enormous cost. I feared that if there was a loss of sale there would be hardships for the neighbor as well as a lasting unknown litigation. I had the neighbor sign a paper releasing me from any liability relating to this incident. All is done, the house is sold. Now that is over, can I file criminal charges against the tenant? .If so, how is that done? There is a police report, of sorts

Living in California. I need to kick my 18 year old son out

Living in California. I need to kick my 18 year old son out of the house.He pays zero rent, and financially contributes nothing to anything. He is verbally abusive, and at times violent with throwing things. He refuses to do the smallest, simplest chore (like taking out the trash). I do ALL the chores, and provide everything else including ALL the food, clothes, healthcare etc., etc.. He is has become a parasite, literally.I do fear for my safety, but I can have some friends over here to back me up when I hand down the words "here's some cash, a full size back pack stuffed with gear and food, now get out".What route do I have to take to get him out. Can I, simply, verbally tell him to leave, and he has to obey or I call the police to escort him out?Or do I have to go to court and get an order?He cannot know anything about my plans, or he will surely bring harm to me. If he does get wind, I'll have to move out to an undisclosed new home, and leave him behind.
