My SUV wouldn't start. I hired a local mechanic who works for a company based in California. Because I had to turn the ignition key and wiggle it to start the SUV, I suggested that may be the problem. He replaced the ignition switch (claimed he had to put in a new housing, too). He said my problem... Read more »
You may have a claim against the mechanic--but probably not against the California company. The company will say the mechanic is an independent contractor and is liable for his own mistakes. I suggest you call the Clerk of County Court in your county and ask for copies of the forms used for cases...Read more »
.. I have been boxing things up and have asked my brother and his kids to come and take anything they want..as there is nothing I must have... I have even offered to put what my brother wants in the garage until he can come get it... Yet he is telling me I am doing this too soon for him and I must... Read more »
No, there is no law or rule that control this family situation. If it was my problem I would box EVERYTHING up and put it some small storage unit somewhere near where your brother and his family live. It cannot cost the estate more than $75 per month to do it; and even if it sits there for a year...Read more »
just went to Advance America's website and wanted to see how I qualify for on a long-term loan but instead of just showing me how much it instantly put me in the sign the contract page with no back button or any way to back out the only option was to sign the contract
Say what? You say there was no way to get out of the website--other than signing the contract?
This is either the most unusual situation I have ever encountered on the Internet--or it is the most ridiculous excuse for wanting out of a signed contract imaginable. The next time you get...Read more »
I have been diagnosed with mental health and alcoholism, I signed and notarized a document coerced, manipulated and pressured by my wife. while I sent it to her, without my lawyers approval or review, I trusted my wife, again, I know, so she used me and manipulated me, she knows how very well....

First the Good news: Everything you said about chronic alcoholics often being unable to think clearly, or understand what they are doing, or why they are doing it, or understand the effect of what they did, or understand what they should or should not be doing, etc. is 100% correct. And most books...Read more »
At the end of 2013 I went to prison for 2 years, It was not til 2015 or so I started recieving letters from the IRS saying I owed the money. My question is, why are they only coming after me and not my ex-wife also for a joint return? I also had a help getting into a CNC or is it NCN, but I want to... Read more »
Since you are dealing with the IRS, the best and fastest way to "get this off your to do list" is to pay the taxes, penalties and interest due for the year 2013. If not, the IRS will keep hounding you for the next 4 years, i.e., until 2023--because that is how far they can go back--unless it is...Read more »
Alimony Settlement was to be of X amount deposited directly into a bank account (per court order). Pension was X amount and IRA set up to receive. Ex decided to withdraw both pension distribution and alimony settlement from pension. Pension rolled over no issue.
The alimony amount agreed to in the settlement agreement is enforceable in a court of law. The issue of who pays the bank's early withdrawal fee is not your problem. If you have a lawyer, call them. If not hire one.
They told me they could put a hold on my person. I explained to her that due to bad health and being unemployed that I couldn't pay the fee that started out at $2184.84 then they said the lowest they could go was to $700. When I asked for documentation regarding this she said they didn't have to... Read more »
Do not pay these people anything. Because they are willing to "compromise" the amount due so much the old debt is probably unenforceable--unless you make ANY new payment. If you pay anything, they can come back for everything.
You have several options--none of which include suing SunTrust Bank for $50.
If SunTrust charges service fees on your accounts consider moving all of them to another bank that does not charge service fees. That switch alone will get your $50 back in no time, plus it will deprive SunTrust...Read more »
A national bank from an account in Tn in 2010 claimed Breach of Contract from overdraft/late fees on an account that was thought closed. In 2012, the bank sold the debt to a collections agency. Now, a (different) collections agency is attempting to collect on the debt plus huge amounts of interest... Read more »
First the law: If the child was born in Florida the State of Florida has jurisdiction and will do whatever is in the best interest of the child. That means the mother is primarily responsible for the child's welfare. Now for the bad news: if you are the father, that means Florida will enforce...Read more »
Translation: It appears that the man who filed the paternity suit is either trying to establish that he is the father of your child or that he is NOT the father of your child. In either event you should plan to attend--ether with a lawyer or not.
If the mobile home has rules against having pit bulls than you cannot expect them to bend the rules just because you claim the pit bull is you "emotional support" dog. Why not go get a different breed of dog?
The parents were never married. There is no custody agreement. The non-custodial parent is on the birth certificate and there is a child support order. Non-custodial parent is in compliance with support order.
Unless there is some sort of Judicial Order that speaks to this (incendiary) issue you may be able to relocate; however, after 41 years of watching stuff like this I would be remiss by not telling you that custodial parents who take the child far away from the non-custodial parent are asking for...Read more »
