I'm Pro Se in a NY case and I requested a default judgment as defendants never responded or appeared in court. The defendants are also in NY and are now claiming personal jurisdiction and improper service. My understanding is that there is a time frame for them to argue personal jurisdiction.

been holding on it for two years.

I live in the house. Dad and Mom wanted only me to have house, not my brother, because I took care of them for over 10 years. There are no papers signed though for me to have it. My brother said you have to have his name on it also because they left no papers for me to have it.

If you never signed anything, you are likely OK. Anyone can sue anyone if they pay the fee. The question is can they win. Here, it seems not likely. Take photos of the alleged work or lack of work so you have evidence to show the court if you need to. If he puts a mechanic's lien on the...Read more »

Obviously not the ideal living arrangement. Theft complaints go to the police, but in NYC, these issues are not enforced. You can get an order of protection yourself by going to the criminal court. Ask for the order of protection part. You fill out an affidavit explaining the issues. It is a...Read more »
You posted this under identity theft. That is a big possibility. Without seeing the full report I cannot tell. Look and see if you recognize all of the debts. If not, put a fraud alert on the report, and contact the erroneous entries.
Should i send the law firm an award letter from SSI? Maybe they will stop? My girlfriend financing a car for me but its registered in my name. Is there anyway to protect the vehicle from being taken away by debt collector? My girlfriend still has 1year and a 1/2 left of payments left.
If this is just a claim, it may be a scam and if not, the statute of limitations is a defense to any claim. More likely it is a judgment, which expires next year (after 20 years) if entered in 2002. While technically a car could be repoed, the likelihood is next to zero. I would ignore it.
The summons concerns a disputed unpaid service bill (< $1K). The district court is located in Suffolk County, NY. The summons court index # starts with "CV", I was told that this indicates Civil Court, and "SC" would have indicated Small Claims Court.
A court of higher jurisdiction has jurisdiction over the claim as well. A $1000 claim could even be in Supreme Court, although it makes no sense to do it. A monetary limit of a court's jurisdiction sets the ceiling for claims, not the floor.
If an estate entering probate has substantially appreciated assets and also has debts, such that some assets must be sold to settle the debts, are the proceeds from the sale subject to capital gains against their original basis or their stepped-up basis from the date of death?
There is estate tax (above a certain value) on the value of the estate. There is income tax to the fiduciary for income realized during the administration of the estate. If assets are sold at a profit, the gain is on the difference between the date of death value and the sale price, which is...Read more »
