Courts have a lot of discretion and with psychological abuse likely you did not hav a protection order and the Court found the other parties testimony on the point more credible. It does not appear that you have a slam dunk case. You can not introduce new evidence and you have to allege an error of...Read more »

I would think that would depend on your contract and if they can link the damage to your use of the car. If the rat was already living in the car when you took it, is it really your problem? Depending on the amount, it may be worth talking to an attorney.
the tenant owes? “We have been trying to collect from Sierra since May due to her paying late on her rent. She has been accruing late fees and has been posted several times. We sent emails concerning past due account: 4/16, 5/5, 5/13, 5/17, 5/19, 5/21, 6/3, 7/8, 7/12, 7/21, 7/28. We have posted... Read more »
Landlord withheld my entire security deposit of $1750 and charged $2065 on top of that for “estimated” repairs. They will not provide receipts, I have requested them several times. They took me to court because I did not pay until I received receipts. Now I will be responsible for interest and... Read more »
You need to talk to an attorney. The landlord as Plaintiff, just like in most civil cases, has the burden of proof which includes proving their damages. Damages do not need to be exact, but they cannot be guesses either.
Depending on where you are in the process, you may even wish to...Read more »
While this is not my area of expertise, I would check into the state's lemon laws. If you purchased the vehicle from a dealer you might be able to return it or have them fix some of the issues. I recommend checking the colorado bar's website under the licensed lawyer tool to look for...Read more »
Well, that depends on your personal preferences. I personally like my broker only acting in my best interest but acknowledge there are times where it is appropriate for the broker to help both sides. A transactional broker acts more as a neutral 3rd party helping both sides in a transaction....Read more »
There are many dogs on that list now living in my complex. The office says the owners of those dog’s presented documents claiming the dogs are “emotional support “ animals and they are required to accept them. How is this not a breech of my lease which prohibits such dogs? Thank you
In many circumstances federal and state law trumps contract law. Contract law must live in the legal framework setup by both the state and federal governments. A personal contract typically cannot supersede a state or federal law unless the law allows itself to be superseded.
these types of questions are often handled in probate. If your name was not on the deed as Joint Tenants, you will need something in the public record to show that you own the property. If I recall, the executor of the estate typically has some authority over the matter but this...Read more »
Your revocable trust does not need to be recorded or registered anywhere. There used to be a statute, that has since been revoked, that required irrevocable trusts to be recorded. This is no longer a requirement.
Upon a Trustors death, during administration, there may be a need to file the...Read more »
It’s a dependency and neglect case opened a year ago. There have been no transcripts and finally after court last time I checked again and there are a year with of transcripts but all of the information is wrong, it even skips from 9/22 to 9/21 then back to 9/22. So there not even in order.
We moved out 12 days ago. Our old landlord put the house on the market 7 days ago. They had one person look at the property and mention pet urine smells in one of the bedrooms as their reason for not renting. Now they are trying to withhold $1,000 for “lost rents.”
From a general standpoint, most leases permit a landlord to withhold a portion of the security deposit to cover damages to the leased premises exceeding normal wear and tear. This could include the cleanup of pet urine.
My 17 year old son signed a contract and was supposed to ship to Army boot camp today. I signed giving permission for him to join. I was told he was emancipated because he had officially joined the army when he signed his contract. He was a witness to a crime and was told today that he can’t ship... Read more »
Unless he is serving, he is not actually emancipated. Even then, that is a determination for the Court. A person does not automatically become emancipated when they sign a contract to serve or when they begin serving, for reasons such as these. Additionally, it would be rare for a witness to be...Read more »
I started a new instagram account for my twin boys and have posted a video that reached 6 millions views in a week or so and a company contacted me to get a permission from me to share their video in their social media and I will get 60% and they get %40. So I just want to talk with an attorney... Read more »
You are wise to check with an attorney before you sign anything that does not make sense. Generally, the person creating a video clip has an automatically-occurring copyright in that video. The automatic rights are harder to enforce or sell, but the maker of the video clip can register their rights...Read more »

As a general rule in Colorado, C.R.S. § 15-12-705 sets the expectations for notifying a beneficiary or likely heir to an estate.
