Recent Declaratory Judgment questions

Please note that what is stated below is fact. My question

Please note that what is stated below is fact. My question is, am I right that this is an issue that the County must resolve? info: "....Mr. Chairman and Commissioner Mathis,As you know, there are homes in the Grand Island subdivision that are not included in the restrictive covenants, nor was there any intent by the original subdivision developer to do so. This is a known fact that the Board is fully aware of as the information was include as evidence presented to the court in the recent GIHOA vs Lee County lawsuit. By ordnance, ALL property owners must agree to be responsible for a roads maintenance to make it private road and no such agreement was made. Accordingly, false documents or testimony was presented to the County Commissioners when the vote was made to approve the private road(s). The illegal privatization of the roads allowed the GIHOA to install access gates and charge a fee to non-GIHOA member for access to their homes. The Board of County Commissioners allowed this situation to developed and it is the Board of County Commissioners that have the legal responsibility and authority to resolve it. Please do not ignore this petition for resolution. I simply want unfettered ingress and egress to my home. If that requires removal/relocation of the gate then so be it. There is no justification to allow this situation to continue. I am more than willing to pay an equal percentage of the maintenance fee for the gate I utilize (nearest to my home) but I should not be forced to pay HOA member dues for that privilege of accessing my home from the closest gate. I am not a member of the GIHOA and should not be put in a position to negotiate/deal with them. Furthermore, non-members should not be subject to HOA harassment as if they are freeloaders that are beholden to the HOA. The fact of the matter is that we should not be trapped behind a gate that should not have been allowed on a section of road that should not be private. I fully expect my County Commissioners to resolve this issue. I will no longer pay HOA dues to access my home. Doing so is nothing less than succumbing to extortion. This has gone on far too long. Please advise as soon as possible. Thank you. ...."JA: Where is the property located?Customer: Lee County, GAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: County records show issue No paper filed with HOA or CountyJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have documents showing HOA is aware that they are in the wrong.

Is it legal for my step-daughter's mother to list ME as the

Is it legal for my step-daughter's mother to list ME as the guarantor when she takes her for medical services? I am the insured who covers their father and them, but how am I financially responsible for what insurance doesn't cover?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Ohio. I keep getting bills for a doctor visit last summer which insurance didn't cover because the provider they took her to was out-of-network. Their divorce decree says they split medical expenses 50/50...we have paid our half but keep getting the bill for the other 50%. When I contacted the provider, they said it was because I was listed on the paperwork as the guarantor. I sent them the divorce decree to see that they should seek the other 50% from her mother who brought her to see the dr. but they said it is my responsibility because I am the guarantor.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no. I think that covers the situation.
