I live in Michigan. My son who is 20 and his girlfriend who
Hello I live in Michigan. My son who is 20 and his girlfriend who is 20 have a child, baby is 10 months now. They had been living together for over a year and got engaged and were trying to work on their relationship. They each had a vehicle. Her car was not running so she was going to turn her car into a private Lil dealer ship and the state would reimburse her 1800.00. So they were gonna get a better vehicle and we said we would help and give a Lil more so they could get better car for our grandchild to be safe. They found a jeep and we wired then 4000.00 to this dealer. The understanding was when she got check from state she would give that to us and that would be her half and we pd half for our son.Needless to say we r still waiting for that check. There was a hold up with them turning in the title to the dealer on the car he got from them. The title was finally given to him 3 months after the fact so who knows if any reimbursement will happen since it's after fact.The jeep title was put in her mother's name so these kids could get insurance and registration. Her mother lives in same town as them in Petoskey and we live in Saginaw. They all 3 and baby had apartment together for last year. If check does come it will be made out to her mother, but will be mailed to my address.So these kids have broke up, so in 3 months of buying this jeep they r not together and she has jeep and we r waiting for check.There was never any paper work filled out regarding jeep. At time we were trying to help them out with our granddaughter's interest in mind.In good consciousness I don't feel this is fair for her to keep this jeep. My son's car he is driving is not very good so he will need something soon and to have to help pay for another one for him is not feasible.We r trying to keep the peace with them so we can see our grand child. We also had to pay money for them to be caught up on their rent that 3 of them lived in. There were many late fees.I am to point in good faith to ask for this jeep back to give to my son, or ask her to reimburse us full amount so we can use that to get our son something else in due time. If we do get check from state I would give her that so she can get some thing else or she pays us difference to keep it.I don't know what to do since there is nothing in writing regarding this. We funded money with good intentions, but to have them break up 3 months after jeep purchased. Also the title to jeep is in her mother's name who they were living with for last year and splitting rent. Any help would be appreciated. Thank u very much. Kelly Kujawa.

I am working to craft a "No Spousal Support to either party"
I am working to craft a "No Spousal Support to either party" clause for a divorce settlement agreement to be filed in the state of Virginia. I had planned to use the outline of the following but am looking for clarification as to any case law reference and support statute(s) applicable in the state of Virginia."The parties are capable of self-support and each waives any claims to temporary and permanent spousal maintenance as set forth herein. Plaintiff shall pay no spousal maintenance to Defendant and Defendant hereby waives any claims he may have against Plaintiff in the past, present and future and agrees that the Court shall be permanently divested of jurisdiction to consider any award of spousal maintenance to him forever pursuant to ???, and Va. Stat. §????, subd. The consideration for this waiver being Defendant's earning capacity and ability to support himself and the property settlement herein. Defendant shall pay no spousal maintenance to Plaintiff and Plaintiff hereby waives any claims she may have against Defendant in the past, present and future, and intends that the Court shall be divested of jurisdiction over the issue of spousal maintenance payable by Defendant to Plaintiff. The consideration for Plaintiff's waiver is her ability to support herself, and the disproportional property settlement herein. The Court shall be divested of jurisdiction to award spousal maintenance from Defendant to Plaintiff. The Court finds this to be a fair and equitable settlement of this matter, which is supported by sufficient and valid consideration, and otherwise upon the terms of the property settlement awarded to Plaintiff herein, the Court shall be divested of jurisdiction over the issue of spousal maintenance from Defendant to Plaintiff."
A petition to serve as my father's executor was objected to
A petition to serve as my father's executor was objected to by my brother. It was pleaded for a short time and we then settled where I withdrew my petition and legal fees were apportioned. We developed a settlement agreement where "the undersigned (me and my brother) agree that this dispose of all issues pending with regard to the estate of our father, docket #XXXX", which was my petition and his objection.If my father's estate has claims against other parties does this in any way limit the estate from pursuing them? Nothing had been initiated or was pending at the time of settlement, these claims would be future claims if initiatied.
Are 'settlement discussions/negotiations' confidential and
Are 'settlement discussions/negotiations' confidential and can't be disclosed after signing settlement agreement? Settlement agreement itself doesn't have Confidentiality clause. Would it be ok if I cite some 'settlement discussions/negotiations' in future pleadings when needed? Thank you!
If after a settlement agreement where there is an amount to
If after a settlement agreement where there is an amount to be paid to the lessor of 2600 in certified funds and instead those funds are characterized as rent and accepted as such by the lessor from the lessee would that establish a new contract for tenancy?Background: We entered into the settlement agreement in an UD case in California. One of the items was an amount of 2600.00 to be paid in certified funds to the plaintiff, but in the agreement there is a clause stating that "no payments made herein shall be characterized as rent." The agreement had a date of Sept. 1 for the payment to be made.We did not pay the amount in certified funds. We instead asked the landlord if we could pay the rent by wire transfer in the amount of $2600.00. The landlords response was with his bank account information. After said payment was made we sent another message to the landlord telling him we had paid the "rent". His response was "thank you".So being that the contract stated that no payments will be characterized as rent and we asked and paid an amount strictly characterized as rent, not to mention that the agreement in no written terms ever states we owed back or future rents, would that payment of 2600.00 be the establishment of a new tenancy contract. Note to my knowledge the communication of the agreement in text conforms with CA CIV 1624.

What do I need to file with the court if the Landlord
What do I need to file with the court if the Landlord accepted rent after settlement? Note the settlement amount had already been paid then the landlord accepted rent by mistake. Also the court has issued the Writ of Possession
I have signed a settlement agreement under misrepresentation
I have signed a settlement agreement under misrepresentation as to the material facts of the settlement. I have filed a motion to set aside the agreement under fraud and misrepresentation and awaiting judges decision. If the judge doesn't favor the motion can I get my landlord for breach of contract by not providing heat after we have paid rent. Paying the rent was in the agreement so I should or should I not assume that the "warranty of habitablity" or minimum standards of housing would serve as the breach?
