If you request an appointment at the city (in CA) to review/

if you request an appointment at the city (in CA) to review/ verify permits/ records for a large commercial property that directs all vehicle traffic / foot traffic to the rear, directly toward residential area. In the meting we found that approved permits do not have the city inspector signature on them (or any city officials for that matter) and the measurements diagrams approved for parking spaces don't actually exist on site, or the rear perimeter wall that was constructed with an exit door is not on any of the records. Are the permits void? What can be done? Who do you inform?It was discovered in the presence of the city attorney and manager of the code enforcement dept., who at first, both tried to make a series of excuses, then moved on to say the laws might have been different few years ago, finally turning their attention to demanding an inspection on my residential home.A city letter arrived 5 days later, demanding full inspection of our home. Thats another discussion though :-(

My husband and s previous deceased wife purchased a house in

My husband and his previous deceased wife purchased a house in Science Hill Kentucky. After the wife passed, he contracted to sell the house. His wife had no will when she died. The person who is buying the house has presented a few bad checks for the payments withe the last one in May, 2016. This one was not made good and she is behind 3 months. My husband married Dec 2015 and passed June 13, 2016. I am trying to not only collect payment on the house but probate his will. The contract was never filed in Kentucky. What are my options?

I just got back from China visiting my family last night at

I just got back from China visiting my family last night at 11:30. I am American citizen. However, when I got home, my husband locked me out although he emailed me ,which I disagree because I don't know why he did this, including his reservation of a hotel for me. After he refused me getting into my own home (I have the title to the home as owner), I know at the time he filled a paper for separation. Then I have to follow what he asked me to find the hotel. But, the hotel front desk told me that was not reserved by my husband when I checked in. So I have to came back my home as I was very tired ,and it was 3:00 a.m. eventhough he looked for another one .I think he set me up when I left for China, and he knew I have had a bad health situation that my mother and brother got cancers passed away in past 4 years, and he has controlled our finance that I couldn't decide any important issue excepting for his prove, and even I don't know exactly about what our income exactly is, and total of income because he was not like talking about it when I asked him in a couple of times. Now, he retired from a private high school( we marry for 18 years), and he wanted to kick me off ( he is 75 years old, and I am 56), even though I just sent and pick up him at the airport for his visiting other cities on this March, April, and May, but he did not pick me up from the airport that I asked him by email, instead, he locked me up!I hope you can give me advice that I don't know America law at all , but he divorced before and had 3 child then. I need an expert lawyer regarding to separation and divorce. My email address is***@******.***, and cell phone is(###) ###-####for anytime. Currently, I live Belmont NC (Charlotte area).Thank you***** *****u

I have a court order ex to put the house on the market to

I have a court order for my ex to put the house on the market to sell our property for a price agreeable to me. He in turn has a notorized typed paper that he sold the house to a person for cash and in turn bought the house back from him . Now he and this person want me to sign the deed because he has met his court order. therefor i receive nothing . Also in this court order we have stated that the proceeds from the house be distributed to each of our children. He also obtained a notorized statement from the children under false pretenses that they are issueing all proceeds to this person whom my ex supposibly brought the house from my ex. I had no idea he had done all this shenanigans and is this legal. I am refusing to sign this papers due to the fact i do not agree on the price and they are trying to force me to sign and get nothing and so my children will also get nothing. but he gets the house all to himself without paying anything to anyone. Is this legal?

Good evening, I am in the process of purchasing a motorcycle from someone I thought was a friend. I gave him the money, he gave the the title, motorcycle itself, registration, etc. We couldn't transfer the title because I had work so we were going to the following day. Now I cannot get ahold of him. I reached out to his mother and aunt whom he used to live with and they cannot reach him either. I have left several messages, called several auto tag places and now I have exhausted everything I can do. please help if there is anything I can do.
