I was denied to ask any further questions on the topic and was insulting experience for not knowing what to do even as an... Read more »
What is your question? It sounds like your best course of action would be to address this issue with your university. Perhaps to the head academic advisor or to a dean of students. Many universities also have departments and deans specific to international students.
You can't create a DPOA for someone who is now incapacitated. These documents require capacity (e.g. knowing what you are doing and signing). Once incapacitated, you'll need to look into a guardianship.
We paid for the extended warranty it's been two months they just ordered the part now ots going to be another month to have someone come out and install. We've spent over 600 dollars at the laundromat already.

She found out that it was a lie. They had nickle AND lead, and some have reported the lead is toxic. Now, I know MLMs are extremely hard to catch, but they tout these jewels, necklaces, bracelts, etc as LEAD AND NICKLE free to ALL consultants, AND customers. Is there ANYTHING my mom can do to sue...

This sounds like a breach-of-contract claim. The devil is in the details, and there are more details than I can list in this format. Who would be the defendant? Is there a written warranty by the seller regarding the merchandise? Where is the defendant? Is there jurisdiction here in Michigan?...Read more »
It appears from the facts you have written that you were entitled to your tools back. Were you to file suit in court, it would be called a claim and delivery complaint. I hope that helps you. The problem is the cost of filing and prosecuting a lawsuit.
The contractor appears to be asserting a mechanic's lien, which is a possessory lien on goods that were worked on. The contractor would have a lien on the goods to secure payment of work done on the goods. You apparently dispute the value or scope of the services. You can sue the...Read more »
My realtor sent the listing agent a few repairs to make and they agreed to do so. After final walkthrough the repair was not noticeable until after coming back to the property and turning on the water. There was still a leak in the plumbing that was supposed to have been fixed. Now I’m stuck with... Read more »
Initially, I suggest you write a letter to the seller and copy the agent. The letter should point out the defects and make a specific demand for reimbursement. After they ignore or reject your demand, you may then consider legal action. However, since you did not point out the defects during the...Read more »
Sub-contractor gave a verbal price which I agreed too but told him to send me a written estimate. He went ahead and did the job without sending a written estimate. The invoice he sent is way more. I refused to pay and now he has an attorney threating a lien against the homeowner and lawsuit... Read more »
It doesn't, necessarily. If signed on behalf of an entity, the person who signed would need legal authority to bind the entity, otherwise the entity may rightly say they are not responsible for the contract.
If talking about individuals, then whomever signed it may be held responsible.
Truth In Lending covers what must be disclosed by lenders to consumers. It's impossible to summarize what is a voluminous piece of legislation covering many different scenarios.

My boyfriend and I have been together for 9 years. We recently purchased a home together. As we were not married, I first asked to just put my name on the house, but he and his family talked me into having us sign the papers together. Only my name is on the mortgage as my boyfriend does not have... Read more »
There's no easy way to part ways when you own a house together. Best case scenario is similar to what's done in a divorce: you figure out the equity in the house, split that, and pay him his half in exchange for him signing a quit claim deed to you so that you own the house outright. If...Read more »
We went to trial in Arbitration and the Judge awarded the plaintiff an amount.

Yes, quite likely, but against your friend. Your first priority should be to determine who actually owns the car - whose name is on the title? Because if it's the person who the husband co-signed for, that person could claim the car stolen. OR, the bank or whomever made the original loan could...Read more »
