Likely not. Even if he is your boyfriend, if he is critically ill and married, more than likely only his wife will have expressed permission to continue using the card.

You may want to consider filing a motion for examination of judgment debtor so that you can review his finances and have the court order the payment from the defendant's assets.
And any information obtained still will be used for that purpose

I have the receipts for my prorated rent and security deposit that I never got back. I want to take her to court over the deposit and to pay for my hotel lodging since wrongful eviction. Do I have a case with no Written lease?

You then need to read the contract and see what you are buying, and if it matches what you thought you were buying. If it does not, you should not sigh it. If there is no written contract, then...

Potentially. You will need to consult an attorney to discuss your case. One of the things that I am curious about is whether you went through the process of being emancipated. If that is the case, then any child support should be sent to you, as it is meant to be used for your benefit, and no one... Read more »
