Hello,I was wondering if you could help me out? I am a spouse of a military retiree and we have been married for almost 20 years, together 23. Things have been hard and I have noticed several secrets. My husband retired from Germany (where I am from) after we were married for a year. We've lived in Georgia since 1997 now.I left my home to make a home here with him and 3 month ago he said he needed a separation to find himself. I let it go for a while, and went home to Germany for a visit. There I realized that something was apparently going on with him beside him needing to find himself. It appears he has reacquainted himself with a friend from 30 some years ago. I did some research and it seems that something has been going on for about 1 to 1.5 years now without my knowledge. Besides almost daily calls, ranging from 3-9 times, he also went to visit her in her home state in NY (he is also from NY), especially while I was in Germany. I have not heard from him while I visited home this year. After 33 days he finally texted once. Then nothing again for the last 18 days.I am now thinking that he may be looking for a divorce and I am worried about several things.Can you help me out or is Jag only helping military/retired military or also their spouses?Thank you in advance.
My lease states that the tenant shall quit and surrender the
My lease states that the tenant shall quit and surrender the demised premises to the landlord in the same clean condition it was at the beginning of the Term except for normal wear and tear.It also states [the appliances, all are listed] will be returned in a clean and re-rentable condition; ordinary wear and tear accepted. In the event that the Tenant fails to comply herewith, Landlord may at his option complete said work (at a fee of $60 per hour), clean and repair and deduct same from any security deposit held by the Landlord.Please refer to my lease. I have indicated where my argument about cleaning and my fees are located.I have also taken before and after photos of how the house was left and after I cleaned.My question is can I charge tenants for having to clean up after them when my lease specifically states that the house should be returned to me in the same clean condition as it was when they originally took possession? I also told them that I rented them a house not an apartment. Therefore, they are also responsible for keeping the yard clean. They argue that they mowed the lawn on the 7th, within the timeframe stipulated on the lease. My lease does not indicate a time frame. All it says is that the tenant will maintain pruning of the shrubs and cutting the front and back yards to keep them aesthetically appealing.I looked up the Truth in Renting Laws in NJ:Nowhere does it state that I cannot charge for my time to clean up the mess that tenants leave me. Their argument is that as a landlord it is part of my job to clean up after them. I tell all my tenants that my job as a landlord is to give my tenants a clean, safe place to live not to clean up their mess.I am registered as a landlord with the state and must have a township inspector conduct an inspection for me to obtain a certificate of occupancy.I have written the letter and itemized list for charges that I will attach shortly along with my lease.Thanks,Mike

There is a 15-year old man in Arizona whose father has been
There is a 15-year old young man in Arizona whose father has been on and off the streets with him for most of his life. The mother is living in Northern California and gave up responsibility for him when he was very young (2-3 years old). The father has multiple addictions, including drugs, alcohol and gambling. His son is a hard working young man who wants to be in school and has shown talent in baseball. Recently, in the past couple of months, the father decided to turn himself into rehab, and signed legal custody of his son over to a teacher in the AZ school system. His son is also friends and teammates with the teacher's son. The young man has been living with this family for several months now, and has a stable environment to live in. He has a room, chores, regular meals, and the ability to stay in school. Unfortunately, the father is not stable, and is showing signs of regretting his decision to remain in rehab. He has shown up to the family's home and taken the child out without notice. The family is concerned that at some point he will take the child and never return. What are the family's rights, seeing that he has signed custody over to them, until the end of the school term? Is there anything CPS can do to support this family, as they try to help this child live a healthy, stable life? The family wants nothing to do with the father, as long as he is unstable. They don't even know him. They only know the son through the friendship with their own child. This is not the first time this father has "cleaned up his act," and there is no track record to suggest that he will succeed this time. He has brothers and sisters and a mom in AZ, but none of them have stepped up to help in any way. They have enabled him in his dysfunction all these years. The only person who has done anything to support this family is my business partner, who is the child's uncle by marriage. He recently got the family to send financial support to this teacher's family, so they can offset their increased expenses. The concern at this point is the Dad and his potential to disrupt this situation.
If you hire a contractor to build a structure and you pay
If you hire a contractor to build a structure and you pay him then he refuses to build the structure or return your money when you cancel, what remedy do you have. It is above the typical small claims court but not enough that most attorneys are interested in taking case?
