Her brother put a restraining order on her to not go within 1500 feet of the cabin, he is 6/3 300lbs she is 5/4 100 lbs, this is oviousally to harass her as he has had use of the cabin for years and my wife just became a partner last week. The question is she wants me and a few of our adult children to go up there for a weekend to represent her. The bully brother says she can't extend her rights of ownership and he'll run us off I have read in the trust where it says (the trustee or there agent) can she name her agent therefore giving me her rights to be there?

My issue is about the pet law. I have a friend who didn't

Hi, my issue is about the pet law.I have a friend who didn't want to take care of her dog anymore long time several months ago, and asked me to keep the dog at my place. I have taken care of the dog for months and was about to change the parent name under mine, but she begged for not doing that, so she is still the parent. But just few days ago, I was about to leave the US for a trip abroad and didn't have the time to send the pet to pet smart, so I asked her to send the dog to there. She promised to do that, but one day later, she changed her mind and saying she is gonna keep the dog for a few days. after she fused to send the dog to Petsmart, in order to better take care of the dog, I asked my trustworthy friend to pick up the dog. She had said yes at the beginning, but when my friend arrived at her home, she refused to give the dog.She once kept her dog in the balcony and never let out for one or two months, and the dog had lived there by her waste.. Her roommate is the witness.So since she has done this to her dog before, is this considered as pet abuse?And will I be able to attain the custody of the dog since I had been the one who took care of the dog and she did abuse the dog?

My sister filed 7 bankruptcy a few months ago. I live in my

My sister filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy a few months ago. I live in my father's old home. He left me a life estate allowing me to live in the house for life, and upon my death or decision to move, it would revert to my sister's and my brother's heirs.Last week I received a letter from a lawyer who is trying to separate her interest in the house and is threatening to put it up for sale, in order to collect on her debts. Can they legally do this and do we have options other than coming up with the money they are looking for. I am on a very fixed income and could very well end up losing my home if this happens.
