This statute deals only with the notice requirement to perfect a demand to return. I think you are asking if there is a statute of limitation on theft. That would depend on the value of the items. Try your questions again and give some facts so someone can answer.

Required by whom? What is a "Verification of Mortgage" Probably, you have entered into a contract for deed (which is a lot tricker that you might think).

If he receives any money Medicare will take his benefits away. Dad died without taking brother's name off insurance as beneficiary. I can disclaim his insurance benefit, but what happens to his benefit if I do? How long is any disclaimer in effect? What can I do to prevent Medicare from removing... Read more »

Consult with an elder law attorney in your area. Most likely you will be looking at a strategy that combines...Read more »

The short answer is that it depends on what your lease allows and how much you owe the landlord. If this is going to lose you more money than allowed under the lease, then you should bring this immediately to the attention of the Court. I strongly recommend that you hire an attorney to represent...Read more »
I recently found out that several accounts (signature loans, credit cards) have not been paid by my (now ex) finance. Bankruptcy appears to be my only option. However, I am having to come up with the money to pay an atty.
Is litigation the same as a lawsuit? Can this turn into a... Read more »
Yes, litigation is another term for a lawsuit. If collection actions have been filed against you, then you will have been served with paper legal documents: a Summons and Complaint, either by certified mail or process server/sheriff.

If I was as a 1099 or... Read more »
Changing your employment status from regular employee to 1099 independent contractor will NOT stop or prevent a judgment creditor from seizing part of your paycheck. In fact, changing status will INCREASE the amount of the paycheck--which should bring a smile to your judgment creditor's ugly face.
