OK try to sell you get a little free legal advice right now text your question. Two of the text line which is 97107. And of course as we learned last time there is no question that is a stupid legal question and I've now. Here is a text that says. I was just to hold. By my fiance. That he wants a pre nup. I am somewhat bothered by this. Spot. What are the things that I need to look for in the cleanup agreement with him so this woman I guess he just. I mean is probably no good time in L knows this and overtime to bring up Farina and a lot of it depends of you are. It does feel real but what are the things that somebody should look for for that well let's take a look at see how much your spouse is gonna be where let's OK you want to fully complete disclosure of productive goods so I was like to say go to the appendix. Let's figure we are actually marry a guy it's a figure out how much. They're gonna be aware of and then what year Sheridan made a decision if you wanna go forward with the letter yet but I mean yeah yeah but I mean are today I mean is there there's certain things that she should be careful of with this guy trying to get Internet design pre nup bird. I mean it depends on what the purposes but in incher she should get a lawyer. One of the things he needs to look for a pre nuptial agreement is to make sure that you had representation. You gotta make sure that there is a complete and full disclosure of all of your income assets and liabilities yeah you gotta make sure that it's fair and reasonable there's a whole bunch of things you look forward to. That your Dupree but it's not something he should do by yourself because they are valid Massachusetts. And you do stand to lose a lot of money if you won't get a diploma. It's a negotiation right and it's like a divorce you you know there's also continue going and fighting with. You're acts that's why you hire a lawyer his lawyer. Is gonna fight for a year so you you know you I mean if you want his snowmobile. If he had divorced you need to tell a lawyer right. Let's kind of likely you are brewing you know you don't wanna be there when negotiating team because and I'm gonna talk to you again the seal that a lawyer do get a look at radical lawyer so you avoid problems in in the in the future if you do end up getting married. I have a crazy neighbor. Who is constantly. Reaching over my side of the property line and cutting branches off of trees and bushes etc. What do I do about that so. The first question is whose tree is. If it's on your property with a neighbor's property and that's one thing we got to look at. Secondly we got to look at is if it's your tree is it going on his property if it's history is equivalent to your property. Massachusetts we have property rights and extend up from the ground to the air okay so great example is outside your door you have a hotel that's going over the mass bike. Yeah that was leased land because about the politics of suspecting we're trees so the tree is history he's proving it to keep it off of your yard actually doing a favor because you stop and trust. So it looks like he's going on. This guy's property this woman's robbery in cutting their tree. So that's an interesting question actually going on the problem that you're reaching or its over the property it's on to reach around and you carry me and you can't do that. Equally you can do that depending on if its senior airspace violation at any technically it's a trust pass to Lance yes I have related questions though neighbor puts a offense. You're supposed to put up the outside of the fence basing your neighbor right correct yup that's cute. Mean here's that's not a law and an idol so it is the due she neighbor puts up the fence the other way it is not induce a a couple of bullets just asking for you for asking for what happened after I thought this Willie Brown legal poor listener but no issue can take advantage and then what good acts like I say this it's very difficult to put ads up reverse. If that benefits the opposite Lleyton Hewitt think. Either the property -- -- or they aren't your property when they put out the facts didn't seem to have an issue a minute don't bet on our property now and cultivation mart or you know that's your trouble you know we images go back grab your property plants in there and then keep your fingers crossed I'm presumably there is Texas you know you know you're ready to do Pascal B are out of the lawyer part it's is through growth this if this is Dave hello she hasn't meant or how Powell. Hello David. What's up David. They the dump all the three adored by. Well we're both thirty believed all of a. When plateau. Thirty million dollars you father in law is worth why don't you liar you getting divorced more why she's calm the bird yeah it should how much more important question what is your question. Not might not my decision yet on though it. That is good club that George street. That the judge. There have been judged pretty Willard and yes she. Judges. You know over that she are not because the other but the way it is it is off by a full abolition. That was your question to questions of them. And littlest the end of the although the game you know and sure you're certain that there is no real all groups that. Other business spending they have a lot of money to spend on lawyers zealot that is. I don't do those types of things but. If there's a thirty million dollar state in year three years and it's time to look in the mirror now you're the coaching at that later you let that happen so he should it take a settlement and just whatever I don't say that and that thirty million dollars is something that. Luckily it's in my brain right now in this Cason and it's called the Von case in Massachusetts where an inheritance from parents is potentially. Part of the Merrill state so. Maybe that's what's taken salami that trying to make you rich. Can I expect here's a 617 text can I expect to successfully sue a chain restaurant or food poisoning. I have 600 dollars in medical fees associated with a it. NATO chain restaurant and not a yeah I even say about Allen way and meaning and how often do you when he super something like that the UN can and of collecting polled recently where you know of course yes I couldn't yet judge honestly it doesn't matter who used to it yet they're wrong your right you're probably knowing that somebody UG food poisoning. You know that's actionable you should be so does 600 dollars in medical bills I'm quite sure how bad the food poisoning isn't worth suing in that case because you're going up and against the national chain who has. Lawyer after lawyer after lawyer I 600 being Smart I mean it. I mean to be honestly how much images we have 600 bucks couple thousand. So that make you a lot yeah. Let's see. Doctors diagnosed we diagnose me with a bronchitis treated me for over a month but did no testing to confirm. I went to a new doctor did blood work found out that it was. Something serious. Ken and I. I do I have a case against the original doctors who did not diagnose me properly well he would medical malpractice it's always complicated because you have to find another doctor somewhere that's wounded tested by the UN document. And they don't want to do that to each other now they don't stick together the dead the valley lawyers yes that happens and right back right. Yeah yeah but that the reality on that as you probably you know if the doctor failed to diagnose and because you images. You probably have a valid Los here's a 617 taxed this is ask a lawyer would Larry army junior attorney at law. I'm my employer is telling me that I cannot leave the work property during launch. Is that legal. I don't even to say about that one. I mean are you entitled to a lunch break you are right as bylaws live like three to fifteen minute breaks for every four hours you work out how well can that cannot employer tell you the can't leave the property for your lunch break I mean it sounds like he's being illegally detained. At the mafia boss imprisonment. Yeah. Again it's how how how much you want your job and I don't feel you reveal the lawyer the lawyer for the a that's kind of what it is some of these things is like yes I suppose he can go. And you know. And take the got a court and then you end up not have a new job at the end of the thing right is that is that the way that he ended today you wanna go to lunch and we should get the gauntlet ruby. If you plus is going to stick around. It's one of those scratch and sniff test here rakes it happens probably not right and I admire him my inclination would be dispersants Bentley coming back from which many. Do you believe that they take an X we have industry bureaucrats may be it's the LB liquid lunch. They're taking me. Yeah now. A pop up over there yeah pretty tough it's not Jesus. That's. This is Steve on the Framingham forward studio line go ahead Steve asked the lawyer. I don't have a course about I. Exit poll have a date with someone and I pay well. Lol lol oh nominating so you mean aren't there in the entire smashing out for you random. There coal have a dating and he pays alimony. That what is what's a couple things yeah alimony reform act that we passed in the column a couple of years back says. That if your spouse is co have a team for a period greater than ninety days you going to modify or alimony to eliminate. Inches of I guess yeah I. And when you read the statute doesn't say that your co have a dating and involved in a romantic or sexually Schenscher it's strictly says co habitation so. My position is you have room mate for OpenId gazans contributing financially that would be the co habitation in neat but I rotate as these cases are not. Cheap ones because they're worth it. You typically have to start out with a private detective and you document the fact that there's somebody living there he can do that through voter registration. License with their licensees and practice with them though goes to and the least. So this thing easy got to look at to do that he just kick when records hate she's living with him. Or ease of whether. Question answer. Massachusetts. If your separated your current event cheered divorced and separated. I thought this was but the listeners you know maybe if there's one spouse in the houses and the other one got a hold garage where this friends worry list yeah. Shoot him on this. According to I don't know my questions in Massachusetts is is is it true that if you're separated you cannot. Sleep with another person. And after we've ever had an impact on the and and that kind of edwards' gain custody let me play the best thing about all of this is the face. The facial expresses yeah look at what that question by the LB is the kind of guy who represents himself in the case I just can't do not so well or don't you can't you can't do that unbalanced what's the deal on that separated we are one of the. A handful of states that adultery. Is still a crime in Massachusetts so if you are married even separated and you are having sexual relations with somebody you could conceivably be charged with a Daughtry now. We haven't had a charge like that since the eighties in this state and yeah we did actually have one in the eighty's well Ted Kennedy. I am right out there and not get past hour or boy yes I'm so what so really. Does that work against somebody if they're separated and they are sleeping with other people so I have a theory on this being somebody that is bang that an attorney for twenty plus years and does a lot of divorces. I believe that that large still on the books because when you're asked to testify about these things. You can take the Fifth Amendment which is what I tell my class that. A hole. Cook got the right against self including himself to hundred no thank you represent yourself Bobby is. It's an excellent ones are right this is. How word hello Howard. I don't know are there good asked an attorney would Larry army junior. All right so let's go back to 1994. I was charged. A bunch might. Own belongings stolen. And being in government tried to get him back I felt like OJ. Like that OJ yeah yeah yeah so it would charge misdemeanor possession of burglary two world. And what has since said that annulled. Obama back in 1998 at it turned around at the Canadian border okay and now that I am. And it turned around them on their list and not been able to go on to Canada. So you wanna know how I can get how we can get to go to Canada's Canada's rules or is that the US adds candidates rules all right so you have to go to Canada against an attorney who say this I should it's as a good attorney initiatives that I only licensed to practice in the CommVault tonight so you don't know what they're gonna he's gonna have to go and get a Canadian lawyer. Yes I actually happen have a little experience with okay. Canada has their own set rules that the board you've been convicted of the crime even a drunk driving this. Or charge they appalachians. And they don't. Other clients that a pad that until it was so you gotta you gotta deal Canadian authorities are now okay. You and so you have to go to candidate he just blew the embassy. Yes I actually you go to the Canadian embassy what you just you know Google to monetary and make him and what it's. Liked if you have a back and how to get cheap appearances can actually cared. What if you have diplomatic. Immunity. By the way how do you not have that. And hone your right I mean I'd be. All these titles will China ambassador and now this is at hello Ed. Good morning everyone what's up that morning. I don't a I have a question it's gonna media. At the same company for seventeen years to random drug test. So now what time we didn't drug tests they have I think all NH sit out all over water to nonsmokers don't. Do not serve. But when I didn't have as many people on everything. So I paid expert to have it all we'll bring down the auto picked up its best level and I know late tackle back even further as cable. Odd I get a you know army in the first look at. This summer he says I almost lost are also got to work. I had the quarter we have that we have guys don't want yeah. It's a pretty good of course remember what you a lot of money. Limit date or what do it today admitted in court as well I think he wants to sue over the the faulty drug tests or something but. How they make him go to rehab over ray Alfred drug test. That sounds a little bit suspicious that makes people on the phone a little bit longer here's a 50 wait Texas says I was told that random drug tests that work are illegal in Massachusetts is natural that they get that from their attorney LB I don't know that that's what's called a buddy of mine told me you know. Doesn't Iraq it. Israel and anti many employers test for drugs are illegal it's legal typically something including your employment contract if you have one of its not there check your employee handbook but can they do a random drug test now how does that not only can they they do they do and how is the legalization. Of marijuana a fact that so this question we had last time that we OK a lot of it depends on the career the current. If you're police officer I am pretty sure the American election test positive for Merrill. You know if you let's say divorce lawyer they probably don't care if you need to get through that day. But it's legal and people need to understand that naturally a mentality thing that's really coming before the judges now it's no different than alcohol smoke weed marijuana out of you wanna college sports when he. Whatever it is is no difference or grab a beer bar. What about medical exe you need it doctor you the doctor's prescription for literature claiming now that's right. So I think we're I don't know that we know how to save huge amounts and I was just if you know I think drug tested me license for medicine. But Larry we wouldn't. B is inherently just a conversation. If you need America medical marijuana would not be the conversations are darling or bonds. That off until I tell who's going to tell your boss in advance their asses the situation and this is the condition yourself before Covey of bought him a note from your doctor in not the Russian doctor that's in the top of the building and. Primary if you're a legitimate guy studio but you know I'm talking about one area and this is now below bath and you're on top asked an attorney asked the lawyer would area region. I everybody right in Allen and Bernard. Sucks you. I have a question Mike Young any kind of a lot of course. But it out. The ending. Eight and fatter LIR. Tax. Cheat at backpacks ever met OK Ed you are at an. Eerie. Even a all the luck getting me Harry the neat because he thinks that they can locks are at eight. Alan Ball certainly get the bacteria that. You. That's a good question okay. That is a good question yeah and I will tell you that's the only thing that I do not feel comfortable giving anybody advice as tax issues because that tax code changes. So quickly ya a package has changed again without drop. It's one of those things you truly need to speak to an expert a tax attorney as the latest on that as a handful of them is not a lot. So my advice call the Massachusetts bar association. And get her pro because that's the one area that it's just so complicated it's. Like Greek to common area adds a great great excuse put off getting married don't say you have bonus tax that then that and you can't do that. Let's see I. Let's see here is mark Cologne mark. And what's marked glad you gotta go quick as rub against clock. I haven't obeyed the it was work for companies. And pick up my paperwork. Yet and yet. Europe and eight boldly is well it sure. From the find out the company that was supposed to be getting insurance. That happened here and the whole bill so basically I got the owner of MySpace got. That is my finger and my index sank and now basically. A okay I do let let me help. They are now. So for how many years ago yeah some spot. All the advice you got it's wrong and it comes and he workers' comp if you get an injury or doesn't come here and here should commandeer plays workers' comp sounds like your employer. If they're not paying your health insurance they're probably paying for the work as the seat you got an issue all right 617 text. Four ask a lawyer I've been married for fifteen years I'm going to inherit a substantial amount of money. If I have my wife signed a legal document now. The G is not entitled to any other and then I get divorced years later which he still be able to get any of them money. So you'd need your lights and post nuptial agreement as opposed to me. Greene showed me ya know not do and it. And I I don't have a problem. Get rich teller she signing something else are going up front right I got an idea that I.
