Collection and Enforcement: Father Trying to Attain Assets from My Mother's Estate - I Think Expired

My question involves a child 'support' case from the State of: Missouri Hello, I have an interesting issue happening with my Mother's estate. She recently passed, and I am her sole trustee. My mother and father had been divorced for over 20 years when she passed. Out of the blue, my father called me and said that he is owed $150,000 from my mother's estate, because they agreed to 'take care' of each other in the event one of them passed. He sent me a scan of the pertinent page from their divor...

I'm trying to figure out what the 1,000 words would be. The Founders are toasting Nancy Pelosi... but...why?

A picture is worth 1,000 words. — Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) November 2, 2019 It's unlikely Amy will be the Democratic nominee, but if she is, this post will be linked in my "How Amy lost me" retrospective. She's talking to me in a mindless cliché ("A picture is worth 1,000 words"), and she's sharing a cartoon that is not devoid of words and that has to label the caricatures "Founding Fathers" because the artist apparently thinks the picture is NOT even adequate t...

Antifa in Madison?

We were driving on West Johnson Street right about where it crosses North Barrett, and we saw these guys: I shot this through the rear window and chose it for display because of the visibility of the object in the man's hand: On the other side of the Capitol Square, on the first block of East Washington, I saw these guys, perhaps converging on the same event at the square. Did something happen today? I will need to look it up and will update the post if I find anything. Let me know what this ...

"A presidential loathing for Ukraine is at the heart of the impeachment inquiry."

According to The Washington Post:Three of President Trump’s top advisers met with him in the Oval Office in May, determined to convince him that the new Ukrainian leader was an ally deserving of U.S. support. They had barely begun their pitch when Trump unloaded on them.... In Trump’s mind, the officials said, Ukraine’s entire leadership had colluded with the Democrats to undermine his 2016 presidential campaign. “They tried to take me down,” Trump railed.Energy Secretary Rick Perry, the senior ...

"They’re women who, in their teens, realized that they were actually men, socially transitioned to the other sex, and then underwent hormone therapy..."

"... to change their bodies, faces, and voices to become transgender men. After varying amounts of time, however, they all realized they had made a big mistake, stopped testosterone therapy, and 'detransitioned' back to being who they were before.... They expressed not a smidgen of transphobia, just a pressing concern that many teenage women, particularly lesbians, struggling with gender dysphoria, have been convinced too quickly that the only solution is to change their sex. They worry that any...

Chapter 11: Motion Filed Before Defendant Filed Bankruptcy

My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: NY I filed a motion for an injunction and before it was ruled upon, the Defendant filed bankruptcy. If or when the stay is lifted, does the fact that the motion was filed first have any bearing on the outcome of the Judge's ruling? I mean could he still order the injunction even though doing so may affect the Defendant's BK plan?

From opioids suits, an expected fee harvest far into the billions

The prospect of settlement in the local government opioid cases is likely to result in a massive windfall into the many billions of dollars for private lawyers who signed up government clients; many of these lawyers are munificent political donors as well [Daniel Fisher, Legal Newsline] Earlier, an Ohio federal judge’s scheme for opioid “negotiating class” idea raised eyebrows [Alison Frankel/Reuters, Daniel Fisher/Legal Newsline; Jan Hoffman, New York Times] And at Harvard Petrie-Flom’s “Bill ...

By the clock, this morning's sunrise was the year's latest sunrise — 7:33.

Tonight, we set our clocks back, so tomorrow's sunrise — though later to those of us who are living by the sun — comes with an earlier clock time: 6:35. The time of the sunrise will be later and later, by the clock, but it will never get as late 7:33 (not until we're back on Daylight Saving Time and November comes around again).On the shortest day of the year, the first day of winter, the sun will rise at 7:25. You might think that, after that, the sunrise will come earlier and earlier, but th...

Why is Adam Schiff — as chair of the Intelligence Committee — running the impeachment inquiry?

The Washington Examiner examines:While the Judiciary Committee has traditionally handled the impeachment process and has held those hearings in public, [its chair Jerry] Nadler had run afoul of Pelosi over his handling of the investigation and his decision to hold a series of highly partisan public hearings that were criticized by both parties.Republicans believe Democratic leaders were looking for a way to transfer control to Schiff, who is more closely aligned with Pelosi and runs a committee ...

6 NYT reporters try to catch up with Trump in "How Trump Reshaped the Presidency in Over 11,000 Tweets."

Here. Lots of counting things — like the percentage of tweets containing personal insults — and lots of graphs. Lots of effort at analysis — slanted toward disparaging Trump (predictably shrinking from acknowledging his greatness as a genius of social media):Early on, top aides wanted to restrain the president’s Twitter habit, even considering asking the company to impose a 15-minute delay on Mr. Trump’s messages. But 11,390 presidential tweets later, many administration officials and lawmakers ...

"Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Trump’s border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools..."

"... opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage. The breaches have been made using a popular cordless household tool known as a reciprocating saw that retails at hardware stores for as little as $100. When fitted with specialized blades, the saws can slice through one of the barrier’s steel-and-concrete bollards in a matter of minutes, according to the agents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity bec...

"Probably the most annoying thing is when someone asks you about your height and you tell them, and then they say, 'OMG! That short?'"

"It's like, 'Dude, I'm standing here, did I suddenly get shorter when I told you my height in numbers?'... I'm aware that short guys often complain that it's hard to find a woman, but I have never felt that way at all. It's always been easy for me to befriend women. It just comes naturally and maybe that is the key, not trying too hard and not feeling that your height is a handicap. If I'm on a date I don't give my height a second thought. The women I have dated have ranged from 155cm (my height...

F Visas: Does Previous Suspension from College Affect Chances of F1 Visa Renewal for Return

Hi, I was suspended for a year and plan on returning soon. My sanctions are complete and my university has issued me a new I20 to apply for a new F1 Visa even though my previous one is still valid.

George Soros: ‘Brexit hurts both sides – my money was used to educate the British public’

The philanthropist who has spent billions promoting democracy talks populism, Trump and powerful enemiesAround three decades ago, George Soros was introduced to a brash property magnate over dinner at a country house in the Catskills, upstate New York. Donald Trump was about to launch a New York office block, and he asked Soros to be his lead tenant. Soros was already a spectacularly successful financier, but told Trump he simply couldn’t afford it. “And that was just because I didn’t like him,”...
