You're confused by the language "not purchasing", and I can understand your confusion. From your brief description, it appears the intent of the agreement is that the pet is not being sold to you, but rather is given to you as a GIFT. It calls the adoption fee a...Read more »
Are you referring to your daughter, who is unmarried and has run away to stay at another home for more than 24 hours? If so, you may call the police, as the parties sheltering your daughter without your consent are breaking the law (Fla. Statutes Section 985.731), and/or you may call the following...Read more »
You are playing with fire!! If you have no rational theory of liability for suing the opposing party's lawyer, you are likely to be sanctioned, either pursuant to Florida Statutes Section 57.105 or the Court's inherent sanction powers. Sanctions may include dismissal or your claims...Read more »
Their customer support literally told me that they won't release the funds because one client was not satisfied but they won't tell me what client. Sounds like something very arbitrary and impossible to solve. What can I do? Should I sue fiverr? I also see a lot of other sellers in the... Read more »
The only way to evaluate your potential claim is to have an attorney review your contract and discuss the facts in detail. If the contract was breached, then of course you would have some type of legal remedy. The procedure for making a claim, whether that be by lawsuit in court or by...Read more »
Yes, you may make a claim against the at-fault driver. If he carried insurance, you would start with a claim to his insurance company. If he did not, you would need to sue him, and if it's for $8K or less, you can do it in small claims court without an attorney. Whether you can collect...Read more »

My fiancee was involved in a car accident while he was on his parents policy. One person did not settle and is now sueing. Can my assets be brought into the lawsuit once we get married in November 2020?
A party's assets are not an issue in such a lawsuit unless and until a money judgment is entered against the party, and then it's an issue only if there is no or too little insurance coverage to protect the party - for example, if a judgment for $50K is entered against the defendant, who...Read more »

Very best thing to do upon being struck by at-fault party is to call the police and make a claim to the other party's insurance. Second best thing to do (if, for some reason, you don't wish to do the above) is to make a signed written agreement with that party, take down all...Read more »

Never been late a payment, assumed the agreement was month to month, never notified otherwise or paid any additional and never was given a new lease to sign. They said it is in the contract that it auto renews each year (12 years ago, who knows?). Is that legal for them to keep me in a contract... Read more »
You must read your 12-year old lease to determine if it has an auto-renewal clause, which CANNOT legally say (in layman's terms), "This auto-renews whether you like it or not!" (If it were to have that, it would be unenforceable.) My guess is that it says that the lease auto-renews...Read more »
