Ive never been sued so i have no idea what to even do or who to contact. My citation papers were served on... Read more »
It's extremely important for you to file an answer in a case like this, so they do not get a default judgment against you. For this amount of money, it's probably not cost-effective to hire an attorney, but if it was for a larger amount, definitely seek counsel.
I was targeted by an aggressive door to door salesman, I was coerced and pressured into signing a contract for a Kirby vacuum and promised monthly payments of $105.49, $2,800 payoff before 36 months and $3,797.64 if I’m still paying after 36 months, 21% interest rate. I was turned over to a... Read more »
First, I recommend that everyone Always keep their own records of payments made, either by making the payments in a way that generates a record (like a check) or by keeping a copy of the payments made. That way you are never in the position of having to look for a receipt.
You shouldn't have to get the claim file yourself. In fact, you probably should not get it yourself. What you do is report the theft of your identity to your local law enforcement agency, giving them all the facts which you are aware of. It is law enforcement's job to follow up on your...Read more »
The DA said that the money wasn’t received in time and gave it back. They confiscated and charged me for 4-200gm penalty group 1 and 4-200gm penalty group 2. I didn’t not ask for the money back but the police came and gave me this check. I’m suspicious that they would just give money back... Read more »
I think you should re-submit your question and add some facts. You need to specify how much money was returned. It's not unusual for seized money to be returned to the person from whom it was taken, especially if the amount is relatively small. The larger the amount seized, the less likely the...Read more »
They dont care what card you use, they only go cheaper if it’s cash. Where do I go to dispute these charges. It’s not fair to the consumer that they pass their charges onto me when making payment. I dont want to carry 500-1000 dollars to avoid paying 3%
Yes, unfortuantely it is legal in Texas and almost all states. The company does have to post a notice of what they are charging you and the bill should show the charge separately, They can charge up to 3.99%. If you are a very good customer or making a large purchase, ask the store owner or manager...Read more »

I recently bought a kia sorento 2012 from a private dealer. They sold it to me as is with no warranty but did not mention that it had 4 bad tires that were 10 years old and that the oil pan was leaking. It also had 3 recalls on it that they never mentioned. I have had it for literally 10 days and... Read more »
Is this a criminal and/or civil matter? The collateral in question was the key to my storage unit which contained $30k-$40k worth of personal property. When no loan was ever produced I asked for key to be returned the day that the offer of a loan was proposed. They refused. I found out 2 weeks... Read more »
I will assume all you tell me in the question is true. If the person who is now in possession of your property, got it through false information or "trickery" that would be a crime in Texas. I hope you have proof of your inventory. If not it...Read more »
The short answer is yes. The decision to press charges belongs to the state, not the victims or witnesses. However, if the victims or witnesses don't cooperate, it may be difficult for the state to prove the charges.
My wife and I were trying to check in at a Priority Check in counter of the Airport of Dallas Fort Worth, and when we tried to explain to the agent that we were in a rush, she got mad at us, insulted us and threw our documents off the counter, refusing to provide us service and sending us back to...

Consult an attorney who files lawsuits in federal court against law enforcement for civil rights violations under "Section 1983." It is doubtful you will find such an attorney in Midland... you're probably talking about an attorney from a city with millions of residents. The good...Read more »
I have been using J and J shampoo and conditioner for 6 years. I started when I went to college and assumed that my constant itching of my scalp was due to being stressed at college and in my career. My girlfriend showed me that they found formaldehyde in the shampoo and it all makes so much sense.... Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. You indicate that you wish to speak with someone. You could reach out to law firms that handle product-based injuries. There's a tab above (Find-a-Lawyer). You could search using that...Read more »
I am a law student and have an email address with the term "law" in it. I am not a lawyer, however, and have never stated that I am. Is it legal for me to continue to use this email address without being a lawyer? Don't I have speech protections so long as I am not actively trying to... Read more »
Mid year, I withdrew my daughter from a private catholic school in Texas. I did so for personal reasons that didn’t involve her behavior or conduct. I enrolled her in public school and she finished the year with straight A’s. Early June I received an email from the schools soccer coach inviting... Read more »
Was given an appointment for sept 23 and I'm trying to teach my son to drive before he leaves for school in August. I'm unable to sit and wait hours because of my job How is everything else open but public service
Everything is open except "public service" (aka government jobs) because they make the rules. Welcome to government. You can teach your son to drive without them, but you'll need to deal with DPS to get him a license. The good news is that if he's old enough to drive,...Read more »
