Our daughter went off to college in Humboldt in Jan leaving her husband living here rent free, etc. he just broke up with her 2 days ago and will be filing for divorce.

I tried to help a friend out by letting him, his pregnant wife and their three kids stay with us for a few weeks. It has turned into almost two monthsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The condo association sent a notice for any unregistered guests to leave premises by Monday 4-10. They ignored notice and i was advised to call police to try to remove them. I did so Monday night. The police refused so i informed them that they were smoking marijuana and the 2 cops went up to their room to talk to them. Upon approaching their room the smell of pot was so strong that it was all that could be smelled. I knocked on thwir door and when they opened it the smell was even stronger and undoubtably was coming from them. The cops said there they were not going to do anything about it. The cops then asked if that was smart for them to be doing with their kids in tje next room. They replied no sir and after a few minutes the police left and did nothing. The father of the three children is a convicted felon on probation, required to take monthly drug tests and the mother is in at least second trimester of pregnancy. My question is did the police respond appropriately to the situation

My husband & I own a property with an old doublewide mobile

My husband & I own a property with an old doublewide mobile home on it. About 10 mo ago, my husband was asked by an acquaintance if he could move into the double wide, as he was down on his luck and had just been evicted from a friend's home. My husband allowed this but never got around to get any form of agreement in writing. Although, the man was to pay $500/month (or as much as he could towards the $500, as he was working towards getting back on his feet) The man was also to pay all of the utilities, etc and was told that we were unable financially to help in any way other than allowing him a roof over his head. But, as it turned out, the man somehow set up each utility under our name and our personal address and instructed my husband to go ahead and pay them and that he would be reimbursed. After 6 months, we stopped paying the utilities because there was no attempt to pay neither rent nor utilities. THEN, Five days ago, I asked the man to vacate the premises. I had my son-in-law present and recorded the conversation as well. I explained that my credit is being ruined, as I had only recently discovered that the utilities had actually always been in our name. And, were now, only being paid after cut-off notices were received. (The man has multiple churches CONNED into "helping" him financially, in many other ways as well.) He had told my son-in-law & me that he would leave on the weekend, after we had asked on last Wednesday. However, today, he is now saying HE has legal rights and WE must allow him 30 days AFTER we provide our request in writing. We were also made aware the day we spoke w/him, that there is a bad leak under the home (which will be too expensive for us to repair, and/or continue to pay for.) While we were there today, believing we were there to pick up the keys, there was a strong smell of gas throughout the home. And, I insisted that it was too dangerous to stay, & asked that he leave & stay in a hotel until we could determine its source. He refused. He stayed as I called the gas company to report the smell. This is in Tulsa County, in Oklahoma. What are my rights? I believe the water leak has been ongoing and there could be other issues caused from it. And, we cannot afford to pay any of the utilities nor him continuing to live there for free. We are already out, thousands, while simply helping what we were led to believe, was a man in need. Do I have to continue to keep & pay the utilities in our name. Do I have to allow this CON to remain, knowing that a slip & fall type lawsuit is probably his next move? Thank you in advance for any help you can give me?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason. What state is this in? And how old is the mobile home?Customer: How do I pay for your advice?JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine.Customer: Where do I enter the payment info?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
