I bought a used car from a private owner who lives in Georgia (we live in Alabama). He sold it to us for $5200 but ended up giving us $400 back the day of the sale because he forgot to tell us that the title was in the hands of a used car dealer instead of him & that I’d have to pay the fees....

Hello. Thank you for your question. It sounds like you purchased the car in Georgia. Because purchase was in Georgia, Georgia state law would control the remedies available to you. If you had purchased in Alabama, Alabama is a "buyer beware" state. Meaning, as is purchases are final once...View More
I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Yes, you can sue almost anyone by simply filing a complaint and paying the filing fees. The question is whether you can win and what you might recover. Basically, does the potential reward outweigh time and expense. More details are necessary for such...View More
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you are able to consult with an attorney for your best options, check the account statements closely. Good luck
He did not serve me properly. He filed in the wrong court. Yet the judge took it anyways. What do I do now? This shouldn't of been in Civil court at all. The judge in the appeal court never heard any of my testimony. Nor looked at any of my documents. I'm not sure if my attorney even... View More
If you are currently represented by your original lawyer, you must seek advice from that person. There may be answers in response to your concerns and an appropriate course of action. If you seek new counsel, much more information is necessary. A new lawyer will need to review all documents and...View More
Someone who doesn’t like me comes by my house regularly and blows train horns that he has hooked up to his truck and recently spooked my horse. My horse ran into the side of our barn due to this. We’ve reported him to the police for running me off the road and harassment but they say there is... View More
You can look into if your city or county has a local noise ordinance, but if the police refuse to enforce it that may be a problem. You may want to call the city attorney or district attorney to discuss the matter.
The driver had already tried to pass once and backed out because the road was that bad and then a mile or 2 later tried again. As he passed the wave of slush and ice caused me and the car in front to have to completely stop because we couldn't see and my driver side window got busted. I... View More
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter in many jurisdictions, you probably would.

I am trying to sell my home and my title came back that there is a judgment against me that was filed a year ago. I have never been contacted about this and I have always paid my bills in full, on time. How can they do this without notifying me and how do I fight back? How do I find out who is... View More

The bill of sale does mean something. If you paid him 1800 and have a bill of sale and he refuses to give you the truck you can have him arrested for theft by deception 1st degree, in addition to suing him civilly. Good luck!
If you weren’t married then it belongs to his estate. Did y’all have any children? If yes, then they are entitled to it. If not, then his parents are entitled to it. If no parents, then siblings. You have no rights, unless you can prove you paid for it.

Just about any attorney could write the letter you describe. I don't know what kind of working relationship you have with the shop, but it's possible that it could be more practical to simply contact them yourself in a less confrontational manner and ask them what is causing the delay and...View More

You could become emancipated and then legally you would be an adult. You are not an adult in Alabama until age 19, which means you are a minor child until you reach the age a majority and become an adult in the eyes of the law. Best of luck!
