Q. How do I have my Ex husband removed from the deed of our home? The divorce from 2017 states the house is to be mine.
A: First, it is important to realize that removing a name from a deed is not a simply matter because that person has a legal right to the property, at least until proven otherwise. There are a number of ways that this issue could play out, and if I understood your posting correctly, you did not involve legal counsel in your divorce so you don't have an attorney at hand. It would be best to receive legal advice from a Massachusetts Family Law attorney, but here are the basics: 1. The divorce decree may have language indicating that the title has been transferred as a result of the decree. If so, an attorney can help you determine how to apply that language. 2. If the decree does not contain such language, you might try a letter from an attorney informing him of his obligation to correct the problem, then wait and see. If he still will not sign, then on to step 3. 3. File a contempt complaint with the court. Failure to respond might result in fines, jail time, or both. Hope this was helpful.

Q. I am looking to buy a house but, I am leasing an apartment in Andover,MA. Am I allowed to break a lease without penalty?
A: Typically no. The terms of a lease, if the terms follow Mass law will likely hold, and a breach of those terms will likely result in the breaching side owing any penalties due under the lease. On the other hand, if the landlord is not providing habitable conditions, or violating Mass law relative to residential tenants, you may have other reasons to withhold rent. An attorney practicing in landlord/tenant issues should be consulted if this is the case Alternatively, sometimes a landlord will allow you to waive amounts owed with proper notice or settle for some other amount.
Q. Could an associate of a law firm like Latham & Watkins provide legal services outside of their law firm?
A: The answer depends upon the relationship that this attorney has with the law firm. It is possible that this attorney has some type of non-compete clause, or some other provision in a contract with the employer preventing the lawyer from self-dealing. So much of the answer to your question depends upon the nature of the agreement between the lawyer and the form that the lawyer works for. You would want to contact an attorney to assist you with ferreting out further details and to provide you with legal advice.
