The driver had already tried to pass once and backed out because the road was that bad and then a mile or 2 later tried again. As he passed the wave of slush and ice caused me and the car in front to have to completely stop because we couldn't see and my driver side window got busted. I... Read more »
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter in many jurisdictions, you probably would. Check with the Small Claims Court, either through its online resources or contacting an administrative person at the courthouse as to the types of cases...Read more »
I am trying to sell my home and my title came back that there is a judgment against me that was filed a year ago. I have never been contacted about this and I have always paid my bills in full, on time. How can they do this without notifying me and how do I fight back? How do I find out who is... Read more »
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, depending on state codes of civil procedure for service of process, one possibility is that the creditor could have told the court that they satisfied requirements for proper service and was...Read more »
The bill of sale does mean something. If you paid him 1800 and have a bill of sale and he refuses to give you the truck you can have him arrested for theft by deception 1st degree, in addition to suing him civilly. Good luck!
If you weren’t married then it belongs to his estate. Did y’all have any children? If yes, then they are entitled to it. If not, then his parents are entitled to it. If no parents, then siblings. You have no rights, unless you can prove you paid for it.

Just about any attorney could write the letter you describe. I don't know what kind of working relationship you have with the shop, but it's possible that it could be more practical to simply contact them yourself in a less confrontational manner and ask them what is causing the delay and...Read more »

You could become emancipated and then legally you would be an adult. You are not an adult in Alabama until age 19, which means you are a minor child until you reach the age a majority and become an adult in the eyes of the law. Best of luck!
I can provide a general answer, but you may need to speak to legal counsel who can provide you with specific recommendations and advice, which would require an attorney to closely review all of the facts. For example, "signed everything into" could mean a transfer, a payable on death...Read more »
We received the release letter from the court that indicated the balance on the car account was $0. Why would a well-established major car credit company mail a clear title to a buyer if there was still a balance?
I would assume that your wife filed the bankruptcy and you did not? If that is not the case, then you are not protected from this creditor when your wife received her discharge order. I believe that they are attempting to come after you for interest not paid on the account during the 5 year...Read more »
My friend and I, along with our roommate, adopted a cat. The adoption papers are in the roommate's name, but we equally split the cost of the adoption fee, vet bills, and our apartment pet fee. Our roommate is now moving out and says she is going to take the cat. Can she legally do this? Or... Read more »
The cat is property. Cats are not actually "adopted" under Alabama law. The documents which transferred ownership of the cat probably show that she owns the cat. UNless you can show that you own the cat, you are probably out of luck.
You would spend a lot more than $120 trying to sue your sister. Do you have a note payable to you signed by her? You might just let this be a lesson to you. If you want, you can sue her in small claims Court.
Basically wondering what I will owe her if we split up. EVERYTHING is in my name due to her bankruptcy status. Talking 12 months of mortgage payments, credit card payments, absolute nightmare but curious what i should expect... She also has a pending domestic violence charge against me in the home....

Nothing. Nothing means NOTHING. Don't talk to law enforcement about it. Don't talk to your employer about it. If either of them want to discuss it with you, politely reply that you will be happy to discuss it with them IF, and only if, your lawyer can be present, Then go hire a layer...Read more »
Check your state's Department of Labor. There may be a procedure through them that would be a better way to go. It is also possible that you are required to go through them first, before you file a court case. There is a concept in the law that requires a person to pursue their...Read more »
