trusts & real estate
If my husband is beneficiary to a trust that has come to term(he became of age per the trust), and this existed during our marriage, do I have dowry/marriage rights to his asset? If he does not move forward to sell property and dissolve trust, during marriage, however, unbeknown to me, goes and reassigns the trust assets in other ways to secure his sole claim, do I have any recourse or claim to this dissipation of assets in our marriage?

Where to send summons
I am exploring the idea of suing a national company for breach of contract. The company has a store in Richmond County, NY where the breach occurred. I am trying to figure out where it is best to send the summons. I know I must have the business's legal name.
What I would like to know is if I should use the address of the store where the injury took place, the DOS Process address or Registered Agent address listed on the NYS Division of Corporations page where I found the company�s legal name?
Brother sold my belongings
I moved out of state and left my belongings at my brothers house to hold until I returned to pick them up. Found out he sold my belongings without my permission. What kind of civil case would have as far as getting reimbursed for what was sold?
about a year ago a friend passed away and his dog was given to me and my boyfriend. he is now my Ex-Boyfriend and we are fighting for custody of the dog. the dog is licensed in my name, all of his vet bills are in my name, and i have a pet credit card out in my name with over $1000.00 on it. my ex was better friends with the original owner and his family so they are now saying that the dog was only given to him and not both of us. with this stand up in court? he has a very violent temper, he has hurt me and the dog before and he is on probation for crashing into an x-mas tree lot (which he lost the dog then as well). the only problem is that i have no witnesses to him hurting me and my dog except for HIS friends. they are all saying they will lie and he will lie, so i have no proof. now he is herassing and threatening me. Would a restraining order help me in this situation? my main question is who does the dog legally belong to? what will stand up more in court, my paperwork of him being in my name or the original owners family? any help at all would be greatly appreciated! thank you
photograph consent form
I had my son and daughter at a daycare 3 years ago, when I had a fallout with the director. It turns out to my chagrin that the people caring for my children were racists and one staff person openly told me they did not want my 3 year old daughter to hug or touch them. Shortly afterwards, an incident which had been written up as an accident when my daughter bumped her head in their care changed to, as they tell it, an attempt by my daughter to physically harm herself. It does not take rocket science to figure out that they were trying to get me to leave, which I gladly did. The problem is that while I had my kids there I was asked to sign a consent form to used my kids photographs, which I now regret doing, especially since many of these 'incidents' happened shortly thereafter. I signed the release form in good faith based on what seemed at the time to be a stable relationship. Do I have any recourse to get my children's photos removed from their website (it is 3 years later), now that I no longer have a relationship with the dacare? I was given no copies of the consent form.
i recently helped a friend purchase a car with the deal being he would pay it off in a year or put the loan in his name. right now the loan is in my name. he has made every payment but keeps saying he is going to drop the car off and leave it. is there any legal action i can take to prevent that.
DOT putting a drain pipe in front of residences
Is it legal to put a drain pipe that connects the flooded side of a road to the non-flooded side of the road. DOT put a drain pipe under a road which lets the flood waters run under the road directly into the homes across the road. In other words they are using homes as a retention pond to save the road. Whenever it floods on the side where the water should be it runs in the drain pipe that connects the two sides of the road which in turn floods all of the houses on the non-flooded side. Just curious if this is legal.
Thanking you in advance.
NY Area - work related legal question
My wife was working as a teacher for 2 years. Here first year she received flawless reviews. During this year we had a death at our wedding which required us to postpone our scheduled honeymoon. We rescheduled for a holiday weekend which the district frowns upon usually. We went anyway and she supplied all lessons plans, etc. Her second year rolls around and its time to review for tenure. She then receives scathingly bad reviews all year and is fired 3/4 of the way through. At the end of the year, she was receives her final review with is again FLAWLESS. Also, she was approved to have a student teacher attend her classes to learn under my wife during her 2nd year - why would they do that if she was so bad?
The question is, is she entitled to some compensation? She now refuses to teach because of the experience and it has ruined her career. She now works as an office manager making 1/2 the money she used to.

Public Information Removed?
A state employee posts on the state website ''Company X claims they provide this service at this address but I checked and they can not be found''.
Company X in fact is located at the address in question and it's just that the employee did bad research. Does company X have the legal right to have the information removed or because it is public information it must stay? What if they refuse to remove it?
