as opposed to via certified mail? Am I required to send a copy of my response to the plaintiff’s lawyer within the 10 day period as well, or can that be a day or so late as long as it’s filed with the court on time? This is Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, 2nd Parish Court. Thank you so much.
Basically, yes, yes, yes, however a person who represents himself might also be considered a fool. That said, at a minimum, I would seek a consultation with a lawyer--pay him for 30 minutes ----1 hour of his time to obtain advice and suggestions on what to do/how to do it if you are intent on...Read more »

if you have a copy of the lien, then you should contact a construction lawyer or perhaps a collections or real estate lawyer and find out how long that lien is valid. Once you are aware of that, then you can decide how to proceed.
You should contact a lawyer and provide more information to the lawyer, such as what type tickets, the status of the tickets, where and who issued the tickets, and what you are trying to accomplish at this time. Good luck.
More information is needed to answer this question, such as why do you or anyone else believe you are responsible for your father's debt? You should consider hiring a lawyer to defend you----the entity suing is represented and very much willing to take advantage of a non-represented person.
If you fail to respond timely, then the creditor will seek a default judgment against you so please make sure you handle this timely. If you have the resources, I would contact an attorney in your area---collections or general practice---and discuss this matter with them, obtain your options and...Read more »

A claim of this size is probably best brought in Lafayette City Court (assuming it's within city limits). I would contact the Clerk of Court for the 15th JDC and ask how to proceed. I will warn you that even if you do get a court order awarding back rent, in many cases it is very difficult to...Read more »
