I do not wish to satisfy this judgement because the plaintiff was in the wrong, but she could hire an attorney, whereas I literally have no money. I am expecting a check from rental assistance that I want to protect from this judgement but I'm afraid that if I open an account at a different... Read more »
It's possible you could. You would be best off discussing this with an attorney in New Mexico, but your post remains open for a week. As a general matter, this arises in contribution or indemnity settings, and the party you implead becomes a third-party defendant. This is covered in Rule 14 of...Read more »
FYI: You are fighting the "triangle" battle that very few--if any--bank customers can ever hope to win. But as a former bank operations officer, I will tell you the easiest and most effective way to win and stop the monthly bleeding:
Close your account at Citi Bank--and do not...Read more »
Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Therefore, I am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe (being unable to know what the future may bring) and am unable to opine on your current dilemma. Advice: wait and...Read more »
I tried to get it dismissed because I never finished or obtained a degree and the ending result the loans racked up to around $89,000 theres no way I can afford to pay this back I have 3 kids now and I filed paperwork because I found it tech was still filing loans for me and collecting student aid...

We have unused space in my building I wish to sublease. I asked and received permission according to the terms of my original lease but with additional terms. Property management needs a copy of the agreement, our tenant needs liability insurance and they want 25% of the agreed upon rent! Is that... Read more »
My stepmom in New Mexico asked ADT to install their equipment. The installer only had her sign one document with 3 numbers on it, but no where did she sign that they could use her electronic signature on the official ADT contract. They said that they sent her the contract to her email, but she... Read more »
Yes. In these days of electronic everything most states have defined electronic signature as being the same as hand written signatures. Whether you mom has to pay for something you say was supposed to be free is another question.
If you have the financial resources to give over $7,000+ to a complete stranger who promised to educate you in how to apply permanent makeup in only one month, then you surely have enough money to hire a competent lawyer.
The case looks easy to prove--if you can admit to being gullible and...Read more »
In the contract, it states that the $1200 I paid when I initially moved in was for first and last months rent. My roommate is now trying to claim the last month rent is actually a deposit. The contract, which was written by her, is unsigned by her so I'm unsure if what is written still holds... Read more »
If you paid the last month's rent to the landlord then the landlord must still have the last month's rent on deposit. So if your roommate is staying in the apartment after you leave, she will (someday) have benefit of the last month's rent after you are gone. Right? IMO, she should...Read more »
I purchased a water softener unit for my house and I recently found out that the finance company placed a lien on my property as soon as the contracts were signed. The payments have been paid regularly and up to date when I found out of the lien on my property. Can this be done without a judgement?
Possibly. I suggest consulting with a bankruptcy attorney to see if you may be eligible to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy which would eliminate any unsecured debt. Most bankruptcy attorneys do not charge for the initial consultation.
I bought a car from a private party. The seller stated there were cosmetic issues but the car ran well. During the title signing, we found that it was a salvaged title, but the seller said there were no issues with the car. After everything was signed and we had possession of the car, we found...

As long as the issues are those that the seller knew about. Sounds like he halfway admitted. Send him a note that per your ealier discussions you'd like him to take the vehicle and title back. If he ignores file it in small claims court (magisterial district Court) for where he lives.
Not specifically. I'd check Amazon and read the reviews.
