I was involved with a man who was in the process of divorcing his wife (Have Court Docket). We've known each over 20 years and became personally involved for about a year. Within 20-25 days of receiving a handwritten note of love and devotion, he abruptly returned to his marriage... View More
The first problem is that the state of Michigan abolished the cause of action for breach of promise to marry. The second problem is that the other contracting party is married. I expect that the court would find that his contract to marry someone when he was already married is against public...View More
The bankruptcy discharge prohibits a creditor from demanding payment of a discharged debt. However, it does not require a prospective lender to lend to you. Therefore, it is illegal for the creditor holding a discharged debt to try to enforce it against you, but legal for a bank to deny you a...View More

Did you sign a lease that obligated you to pay rent for a period of time that extended past the date on which you moved out? I suspect that there was a lease, and it went through July 2018. If so, the fact that you notified the landlord of your intention to move probably makes no difference.

winning in the courts. Our attorney filed a motion to enforce a mediation agreement without our permission and has other small missteps because he appears to want to be done yet we don't know if another attorney will take us. Our case is good.

The new owner said the deposit didn’t count for the rental because it wasn’t paid to her. She made us pay $700 more for the rental. Can she do this? Shouldn’t the sale of the house include deposits to the former owner? We have a contract with the deposit on it that is signed by the former owner.
you have a claim against the former owner, but not against the present owner, unless the present owner assumed liability for outstanding deposits. I would first contact the former owner and demand a refund.
To give them the rest of the money which was $900 and they went ahead and sold it to somebody else behind my back but I have been living in the home for over 5 months and the person that sold me the house had already had somebody come to the house once before with a gun and basically threaten my...

Basically, you are entitled to your share (perhaps half, but subject to adjustment). You may be able to file suit to compel a sale. That depends upon how you and the co-owner own the property.
