Good evening. He has no rights. A gift is a gift and he cannot rescind it. He can threaten all he wants, but he has no valid claim. You can never prevent someone from filing a suit against you, but he won't prevail in rescinding the gift. The judge will see this for what it is...a situation where the grapes are extremely sour.



I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

You are sure he has no legal claim? he is stating I "promised" him for the dog to be in his life... ets.. and is now being hurtful ( obviously) but I am quite concerened he can try to get the mone or my sweet baby... What I had not stated was that he financially helped me in other ways quite a bit... groceries and fronting the money for a large board exam... etc... He is quite bitter... would you just suggest ignoring it and being comforted that he has no claim on having helped me????
Expert:  Richard replied 6 years ago.

He has no claim for the dog. I would be careful not to let him steal the dog, although if he does you can have him prosecuted. If he keeps harassing you, I would suggest letting him know that if he doesn't leave you alone permanently, you will either get a restraining order against him and/or file criminal harassment charges.
