A document that I recently had notarized by Bank of America is being rejected by my university on the grounds that the notary hasn't signed it. While attempting to research this online, I have yet to find definitive answers.

1. The name of the county or independent city in which the document is signed
2. The date the document is signed.
3. The notarial statement – what is being notarized (i.e. a... Read more »
I have invoice and proof of paying with a cashier's check. He is trying to defraud more people and he blocked me on facebook when I told people he was a scam.

If the project was in Virginia, you could sue him in Virginia, but you may need to register the judgment in Ohio (or where ever the contractor is living) to enforce the judgment. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
guy wont acknowledge my phone calls or text ... what Do I do

Probably pay him again.... Or, pay a lawyer to develop proof that you paid, escrow the disputed funds, and sue.

You need to consult counsel before anyone signs an offer on a home. Depending on the circumstances, it might be possible to contribute funds to the purchase, but I don't know what "brother dad" means; I can't determine from your question who is on the deed and who is on the... Read more »
No written exchanges about the money. When he broke it off he asked her about it and she replied “I don’t give a f***” now after some stalking on her part she filed a warrant in debt for it. Does she have a case ?
answered on Jun 13, 2022
It really depends on what was the basis of giving the $10,000 or the agreement (even if verbal) around the money. If it was really a gift, then your husband should be able to successfully defend the lawsuit. If you or he decides to hire an attorney, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy... Read more »
Can I get my money back, she said no I am not giving the money back.
answered on Apr 30, 2022
If it was a gift, then it will be more challenging. But if it there was an agreement that this money was to be used to purchase a house such that the money was a condition to the agreement, then you'd have a stronger case. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide... Read more »

It sounds like you had a personal injury case and hired a personal injury law firm that was probably charging you on a contingent fee basis. You won the case but were disappointed with the award. The award can be based on a number of issues, so its impossible to judge, from the award, whether the... Read more »

answered on Mar 29, 2022
Your description is not sufficiently clear. The tenant broke the lease. Nevertheless, you chose to return the full deposit without deducting for the rent or brokerage damages. Now, the tenant is suing you? Regardless of whether I understood you, you need a lawyer to review the facts. Perhaps it is... Read more »

I don't think there is much of anything a lawyer can do without getting involved in the situation and learning the personalities and the history. There are plainly things you can do, but many of them involve putting up a defense. At 71 and living with your mother, you may not have the... Read more »

Possibly. It sounds like the plaintiff is trying to allege some type of tortious business interference and conspiracy with your new business and your former business partner. This scenario where a person closes down a business to avoid debts and then opens a new business does occur. While your... Read more »
