My dad who is 78 years old have been made to overee is

Hello! My dad who is 78 years old have been made to overee is recently deceased brother's assets. The biggest thing is that his brother left land to him and his sister..the deed also said if the siblings are deceased then their kids are entitled. My dad is stress and do not want to do it and doesn't quite understand. his sister was willing to oversee but she does not "qualify". My dad is ready to just throw in the towel. Can he transfer that responsibility to me as his daughter? We live in Maryland.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: no I think that is the just of it.

My parents died without a will in the state of MS, one of my

My parents died without a will in the state of MS, one of my siblings has died since. When my parents died my brother used the life insurance money to pay off the house and we have just held onto it. The 4 remaining siblings paid the taxes and have requested nothing of my youngest sisters estate since she has already passed. I understand that since she also died without a will her share of the house passes to her four children and spouse at the time. We have decided to sell the house, and all of us and 4 of the people of my sisters family have signed to list the house. Is there a majority rules law in the state of MS, as in other states. It does not really seam that we should all lose out because 1 person decides not to list the house. I know about the partition but that does not seem like a good option as that will only end in a public auction.

False arrest?: Short version: Currently on Probation for 2

False arrest?:Short version:Currently on Probation for 2 years following DWI. 1 year remaining. Use ignition lock daily. Random checks by Police at house of residence. Cop shows up, just finished eating. Cop does not seem to know how the breathalyzer works. Blew .012. Two times in a row with no waiting. Cop calls Probation Officer and arrests me. Beg cop to give it to me again, two minutes later...blow .007. Cop refuses to believe that this is much less than .012...tries to explain the point system and refuses to call back my Probation Officer. This was Friday night...spent THREE nights in Jail. Monday morning meeting with Probation Officer, he wanted to nail me to the wall and keep me in Jail. I pointed out the radical and quick decrease in breathalyzer tests. Doesn't believe me and needs to look into the "science" of it. Returned to cell. Less than 10 minutes later I am immediately released. Probation Officer had talked to prosecutor who apparently knows the"science"and immediately ordered my release. Probation Officer did everything but apologized and blamed it on the Officer saying he "could have called me back and this never would have happened." No probation plan changes.I am a professional with a master's degree and can afford a lawyer if you feel there is some kind of case here.Thank You,Tina Montgomery M.S. CCC/SLP

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so how do I prepare it and if not what can I do? I have a situation where I filed a lawsuit against the landlord a few months ago and in response he sent me an eviction notice. My attorney filed the lawsuit but he wouldn't serve it and I couldn't figure out why, after a week or so of talking to the defendants lawyer he told me that the defendants had agreed to except service and that I didn't have to worry about serving them anymore. .He said that he was negotiating a deal with the defendants attorney and was working on a global solution that involved fighting the eviction among other things. Then just before the deadline on service and one day before the eviction hearing my attorney tells me that the defendants had not agreed to except service and that I had to agree not to contest the eviction or else I wouldn't be able to serve the defendants my lawsuit, the entire agreement he made consisted of giving up the eviction in exchange for an extension on service. ThIf us, I had been telling him to serve the petition for over a month. He flat out tricked me into consenting to the eviction. And then he said that he was going to withdraw from the other case as well. Couple weeks went by and I hadn't heard a word from them and then last week on the 17th I received a notice of his intent to withdraw that showed that he was going to be presenting it to the court for approval on the 17th at 3 o'clock. I called the courthouse and informed them that I had not been served properly with notice of that hearing and they told me that they had not received anything from my attorney I called again on the 18th and then on the 19th and it was the same thing, the courthouse still had no record of my attorney submitting his motion to withdraw. Then this morning I check the court website and I see that not only was his motion submit it today but it was also approved today and he has been withdrawn for my case. So here I am facing this addiction is next week and my attorney is just flat gone. I can prove that I was tricked into consenting to that judgment for the evection and I can prove that it is in retaliation for filing the lawsuit, I actually have a text message from the landlord says just don't soon you won't be a victim. And now that this attorney is officially not on record anymore I can take charge and do something myself, what in the world can I do ? I understand that I can attempt to stay the eviction but it's almost been a month since the case was closed, I understand that the judge might be able to overturn some decisions that were made in light of new evidence but I'm being addicted next week and there's no time to schedule a hearing for those matters. This is an emergency situation and I need to stop this right now, or at least allow more time. Can I file a temporary restraining order that will allow for some time to schedule a hearing and get this out in front of a judge? I know that once he sees it that he will agreed that I should not be evicted from my home.
