This question isn't about me, but about someone I have been

This question isn't about me, but about someone I have been emailing who said he's in the army stationed in Afghanistan. He said he has no family, then said he is retiring early but has to pay a fee in order to get processed out and wants money to help. Is there actually a fee for someone to get out of the Army? I've never heard of this and didn't know who to ask if it's true or possibly a scam. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks,***** ***** ***@******.***

My apartment is infested with cockroaches and mold, and my

Hi! My apartment is infested with cockroaches and mold, and my roommate and I want to get out of our lease. The property management company have known about the mold for a month, and the roaches for 2 months and still haven't fixed it. They finally had someone (organised through the old property company) come look at the mold, and the said they're going to have to cut into the walls of my bedroom to fix it and repairs will take 2-5 days. What's the best way for me to get out of my lease?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing to the state, just to the property management companiesJA: This sounds important.

My husbands brother died on Oct. 31st last year in Florida, and his daughter and my husband were only living relatives. The daughter was personal rep and started working on estate. She died on February 9th, 2017. The lawyer in Florida that was helping us said the 'window' had passed so everything goes into her estate. Could you tell us how long that window is/was?

I live in Pierce County, State. Three years ago, my husband

I live in Pierce County, Washington State. Three years ago, my husband and I sold our home & property for a large profit. We bought a smaller home (cash) and divided the rest of the profit by half into separate personal bank accounts. My husband foolishly invested his half and has lost it all. Now, he needs spending money. Question: If I have him sign an appropriate form from Office Depot that states he owes me a certain amount of money due upon the sale of our current home and then have it notarized at my bank, will it be valid? We are going to have to sell our current home and move to a smaller property in order to retrieve the profits so that he can have some spending money. I don't trust his judgment when it comes to handling money. I refuse to just let him have my half of the original profits. We are retired and over 65, so we are exempt from taxes on a large portion of the home sale profits. Our current home has appreciated well. I would prefer to do a secured loan to him for the time being, if it is possible. Otherwise, is divorce the only possible way to protect my financial future? We have been married for 52 years.JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I told you in my first sentence that I lived in Pierce County, WA State.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What does this mean?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
