The electric bill was always in my Mom's name. She died in

The electric bill was always in my Mom's name. She died in 1994. Everything was right of survivorship, so my /dad did not do an estate, and continued to pay the bill in her name for 10 years. when he died, there was a will and I settled his estate. the lawyer said that he would contact the creditors. After the estate was settled. the bill continued to come in her name. When I called the company to ask about this, they said that 'my name was on the account, but it might take a little longer to change from her name.' the name on the bill never changed, but I figured that if my name was on the account, I would just keep paying the bill, which I have--perfectly, no missed payments, usually a credit balance. When I called over service issues, and gave them my name, they seemed fine with that.Last week I called to check on a balance, and they insisted on having my Mom's id info. I went to their office and explained the situation. They closed her acct and opened a new one for me. However, the clerk was told that she could not apply the credit balance to my acct, even though I had the cancelled check to show that I had paid it. It needs to be "researched" and I need power of attorney.Am I in trouble for trying to straighten this out?

Condo is being purchased by my son and his fairly new

Condo is being purchased by my son and his fairly new friend. My son is a finished carpenter and is currently gutting and remodelling his friends condo.His friend is on the board and the two of the are purchasing a very reasonable condo that has come up for sale. Because my son's friend is on the board, and because the owner isgoing up north in a few days and there is no time to execute a proper agreement, the friend will purchase the unit in his name only in order to not go through the month the association would normally require. Apparently, members of the board are allowed to make an immediate purchase and transfer of title.Since I'm loaning half of the price of the condo to my son, I'm asking if I can hand-writea promissory note that would be binding for both my son and me.It would go something like this:I, ***** *****, promise to share, as a full partner, the expenses and proceeds fromUnit #..etc. etc.Although the said condo is deemed to be the property, for the purpose of expedition of thesale, it is understood that the said condo is the property of both ***** ***** and JohnSmith.For the purpose of purchasing condo#...., Ms. Cathy Brown has loaned her son, ***** *****, 20,000 dollars . This loan is half of the price of the unit and has made the salepossible.When the unit is sold, 20,000 dollars will be paid back to Cathy Brown, by ***** *****,out of his half of the net proceeds of the sale.If ***** ***** becomes incapacitated in any way, his 50% sure, minus 50% of theexpenses, will go to his mother, Cathy Brown.***** ***** will be paid the sum of $50.00 hourly and will pay any help he hires,out of the net proceeds of the sale of the condo.The two owners.......will share equally in the net profits of the sale.

I am a resident in the state of Illinois and moved her in

I am a resident in the state of Illinois and moved her in Feb 2016 from Michigan.I was the Power of Attorney for my former domestic same sex partner who got involved in illegal drug dealing and is serving time in a Michigan prison now.I was served a subpoena to testify regarding my ex's finances. His case is a state case and not federal. I was told by a lawyer from Michigan that the state of Michigan has no jurisdiction in the state of Illinois and I do not have to appear and so I have not responded to the first two subpoenas and now a third that threatens to put a bench warrant out on me if I do not appear at the hearing on Sept. 6, 2016 in Michigan. Am I required to be present at this hearing if I am no longer a member of the state of Michigan.Do I need a lawyer and can I plead the fifth amendment for any and all questions asked regarding my ex?

The home I live in is financed in my father in laws name. I

The home I live in is financed in my father in laws name. I am a month to month tenant. No contract or lease agreement. I got a notice to vacate that appeared to be signed by him the sole mortgage holder. Instead his name was signed by his wife. I know she doesn't have right to sign his name. Was this a crime on her part? Does it make the notice void? Does it give me any legal options?
