From Atlantic City, NJ 6/24/2016: Noon I am contesting a
Hello from Atlantic City, NJ 6/24/2016: NoonI am contesting a property now( with in 200 feet) zoned (since 1988) single family block 249, lot 8. The new owner (2/22/16) applied for a "certificate of non-conformity", " continue to use as a duplex". The house was built in 1920, first zoning was 1929. The property then had a kitchen and toilet in the basement (listed on the property record card). In 1988 this property was rezoned (R2) single family. The owner at that time did not defend it as a duplex, used it as a single family. Hurricane Sandy (10/22/2012) hit and property was abandoned, sold at sheriff sale. first purchased by a realtor then by present owner.Question 1: What kind of defense can we mount?What is length of time for an abandoned home to lose its grandfather clause in AC NJ (according to AC zoning board)?

I have a property that is on a dirt road and the town had plowed away my tracking pad. I have asked them to replace it and their response was when they got around to it. It has been over 2 months and nothing has changed. The dirt and grim is ruining my paver driveway and filling my garage with dirt and mud. Is there any thing I can do?Dave Olender
My wife was representing herself pro se in a suit regarding
My wife was representing herself pro se in a suit regarding a zoning law we were supposedly violating on property we own in a nearby town. The property is in my wifes name, so she was the sole defendant, but the alleged violation was regarding my business.When my wife and the town were entering a settlement agreement, we hired a local attorney (my cousin, whom I trusted) to assist with the settlement. The resulting agreement is really bad for me, and I am disappointed in my cousin for advising agreement to it.That is the background in a nutshell. Here is my real question: My wife and the opposing attorney (the one representing the town) began having an affair. This began before we hired my cousin to represent me. This affair has almost ruined my life. I have been unable to work, sleep or eat from being so upset. I am in love with my wife despite what she has done. My kids are having psychological issues resulting from this. My marriage is on the brink of divorce.Many people tell me that I should absolutely sue the Town, the Attorney's law firm, and the attorney for money damages. Some people think I have a slam-dunk case, and others arent so sure. what is your opinion?My goal, I am embarrassed to say, is really vengeance, and the prospect of winning money from these whealthy entities. Money would be a big help because we have a disabled child who is very expensive to take care of. Money won't make my life completely better, but it would sure help.Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
If a neihboring business owner and I share the same parking
If a neihboring business owner and I share the same parking lot, and he operates a used car lot that resembles more of a junk yard, would i have a valid case in seeking a court ordered fence be erected by said neighbor due to the detrimental effect of nuisance vehicles near by my business?
We live on a private lane zoned as such with 4 other houses
We live on a private lane zoned as such with 4 other houses on the lane. Responsibility is to each homeowner to provide clear right-of-way via the lane to get to our homes. Neighbor has stopped snowplowing her entire property and only did what she 'uses'; leaving us stranded due to 18 inches of snow on the lane on her property that is on the private lane we share. She is angry because we won't chip in and only take care of our property (we bought a snowblower instead of paying high plowing fees), but legally that is all we are responsible for. She got vindictive and didn't plow her property all the way. I am disabled and my husband can't get to work. What is our recourse? We PAID for someone to come and plow this small section, but can we recoup the cost from our neighbor?

My girlfriend and I are curious about the legalityView more legal questions
Hello,My girlfriend and I are curious about the legality of charging money for sex shows in Miami Beach.We asked a lawyer regarding this same issue for Naples Florida, and we understood that there was nothing illegal about charging people to watch our sex shows, which we perform in our own home.We've moved to Miami Beach now, and we thought that we should check again to make sure that we aren't breaking any laws there in this new area, by charging money to have sex with each other ( my girlfriend and I ) in front of people who pay to watch.They just watch and there is no interaction or involvement of any kind.Thank you for your help here.If there are any issues here, are there ways to overcome them to make sure that we don't break any laws out there?Thanks. Douglas.
