I was trying to purchase a home and loan fell through. I had asked my real estate agent if I will get my earnest deposit back and I was told yes as contingencies not cancelled. I contacted escrow a few weeks later to ask about my deposit and they said seller did not sign to release funds. I then find out that a counter offer stating no closing costs would be paid and loan contingency released after 21 days. The thing is I did not sign this paper. The real estate agent did and obviously she did not know what she was signing as she stated I would get my deposit back. She forged my signature. Is this counter offer valid. Can I go to small claims. Only 2500 but it is the principle.

I have a situation that has come up and I'm wondering if it

Hi! I have a situation that has come up and I'm wondering if it rises to the level of a criminal offense. My ex-husband and I held some stock in joint tenancy. In the divorce decree, which was finalized in 2007, the stocks were supposed to be sold and the proceeds divided, with half going to each of us. He has refused to execute the sale and distribution of proceeds. Several years ago, I approached him to get this done, but he refused and told me he would reopen the entire divorce proceeding. As a result, the stocks have just been sitting. One of the stocks recently went through a merger, with a payout of shares and cash, as well as a spinoff of a related corporation, which also distributed shares and cash. A total of 3 checks were issued in both of our names. He has cashed the checks and not given me any of the proceeds. I have copies of the checks now, and two of the checks do not contain any endorsements at all, and the third check was simply endorsed by him. Is this an issue that I can pursue criminally? I'm in Wisconsin, and know some of the laws about forgery and uttering, but if he didn't sign my name, is it still a forgery, or is it theft?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Wisconsin - but the issue is not with the divorce decree. It has to do with the checks he cashed without my signature or permission.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I'm planning on filing a police report. I've spoken to my local police, and they want me to file the report now that I have the copies of the checks.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No - I think that's it.

Merry Christmas Ms.. I am hoping you can give me some peace

Hi, and Merry Christmas Ms. Wilson. I am hoping you can give me some peace of mind. ......JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: We are located in Hollidaysburg Pennsylvania. My son is going through a nasty divorce. His ex-wife is very vindictive and at every cost tries to keep their 3 year old son from him. Last week my son was in a car accident totaling his vehicle. He had to turn over the title to the insurance adjuster and the adjuster had my son forge his ex-wife's name. I am very scared this is going to be a problem.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes, the accident was reported. Neither person involved were hurt but both vehicles were totaled and my son will be cited because he is admitting fault. He is very scared of his ex-wife. She is very mentally abusive and he seems to loose his backbone when it comes to her because he doesn't want to do anything that will cause a problem for his son.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just don't know what can be done at this point. I would like to know if my son would go to jail if and when his ex-wife finds out.
