I went to see my lawyer of a 4 year divorce. And, we have a

I went to see my lawyer of a 4 year divorce. And, we have a mediation & a trial set for less than 3 weeks. Which he just told me about today. I ask for the meeting to see where we stood. That's when he told me about the dates! I ask what his plan was - b/c there's a lot of money & property at stake. He had NO plan. He is only hoping my husband doesn't show up. That would improve our chances. He hasn't gathered any of the properties, bank accounts, royalties, automobiles or corporate assets! I took he a truckload of titles, check book records, misappropriations of funds and unlawfully changed titles and moving of assets. He said he wanted me to drive around & get the addresses of all of the properties. He is suppose to have all of this information years ago. $30,000 ago. He had my husband sale $300,000 worth of properties and buildings for a $150,000. And, all I received was $50,000. I don't even know which properties my lawyer forced my husband to sale or why he had him sale them at 1/2 their worth. He did this with out my consent. I would have rather had $150,000 worth of properties. And, I have no idea what his plans are in the next 2 weeks. He said he couldn't promise me anything. That's not what he said when I hired him.

Just wanted to find out if they could really take any legal action...JA: What written documentation do you have?Customer: From them?JA: Have you talked to a local attorney?

Hello, I have very recently had an interaction with a member of the Marine Corps on Facebook. I realise that there is every chance that this may seem completely trivial, but said individual was fairly abusive towards myself with little to no provocation, ultimately ending in what seemed like a veiled threat. Now I have no idea how things actually work with you guys as I'm neither military nor a U.S. citizen, and to be perfectly honest, despite what was said to me I have no interest in getting the guy into serious trouble or anything like that. He's just young and hot headed. Was just wondering what you think. Apologies for wasting your time if I am in fact doing that. Thank you.

I am a beneficiary of a trust fund that includes

I am a beneficiary of a trust fund that includes recreational property and money in funds and cash. My brother is the trustee as well as a beneficiary. He wants to resurvey the recreation property and I see this as a waste of money since the reasons he states do not seem to be valid. His reasons are below but my question is, does he have the right to just spend monies from the fund for items that are not needed or warranted?Here are is reasons:Re-survey the property. Many valid reasons for doing this. For example - If the trustee is ever forced to sell the property for whatever reason, this needs to be done prior. Potential new buyers will not accept an old outdated survey, which does not show the current owner, etc. The current owner's name shown is still showing the 4 original owners, which were two transfers ago. 4 original guys to dad and dad to trust. Also needs to be done in order to transfer property to the kids at some point. In addition, if at some point in the future exploring for natural gas and or oil is ever allowed in the area, (now that Trump is President it may) it would be necessary to have a current certified survey in order to lease the property. FYI - The old survey cannot be certified as the person who did it is no longer in business and a new surveyor won't certify someone else's work.
