Richard Sternberg's answer It depends on whether the defendants have a potential or actual conflict of interest, which most often arises if their positions are contradictory, such as where one of them wants you to lose and the other wants you to win or when one impleads for damages from the other for your claims. If you think you are going to take on U.S. Bank and Ocwen simultaneously pro se, you must be planning to lose, right? Do I guess correctly that this is a foreclosure defense, and both Ocwen and US Bank seek to...
Cary B. Hall's answer Yes and no. There are very specific procedures for appeals to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, and she must follow them to get any appellate relief at all. You too must correctly follow all of the appellate procedures.
If oral argument is requested and scheduled -- that's the "hearing" -- then yes, you would show up to that. But there are briefs, the court transcript in the trial court, etc. that must be filed first and long before that.
Cary B. Hall's answer Zero idea, because I know zero about your case -- either substantively or procedurally -- and neither does any other attorney here on Justia. If you have an attorney that assisted you through the adoption process, however, you should pose your question to him/her. If you don't have an attorney, now is a great time to consult one if you feel you're in over your head.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer No, probably not. Your terminology makes your question somewhat confusing, but the order granted by the state DCA would probably not be subject to collateral attack in the bankruptcy court.
Zachary Divelbiss' answer Hello, this link you have attached is the generic link without any individual case information. I do not believe the site will allow you to copy and paste it with the inmates information. Feel free to send us an email with the information. Zach@Divellaw.com
In terms of finding them, there are a number of online resources. The better ones, Westlaw and Lexis, you have to pay for. But sites like this one, and google scholar will give anyone some access. You can also go to your nearest public law library for assistance.
In terms of understanding them, 3 years or law school would be best. But the most important thing to remember is that they...
Griffin Klema's answer Generally, there are limited options after judgment: (1) Move for a rehearing on the summary judgment. (2) Appeal an error made by the court during the proceedings. (3) Seek to modify the judgment, but there are only limited circumstanced in which the order can be modified. See. Rules 1.530 and 1.540.
If you haven't already taking action, you may be too late to do anything. Appeals must be filed within 30 days, and rehearing within 15 days. Mistakes or newly discovered evidence don't...
Pete David Louden's answer This sounds like you may have tried to represent yourself without an attorney. Best possible thing you can do is hire an attorney now so that they can help you. Use the find a lawyer feature on avvo and you can select from many highly qualified lawyers.
Cary B. Hall's answer If you do it quickly (typically 10 days after the trial court order), you could ask the trial court to reconsider its order. If you did not receive notice, file for reconsideration and say that.
Otherwise, you have 30 days after the order to file an appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer First, Justia is not a lawyer referral service. Attorneys cannot contact you from this website. Second, why would you wait until the due date for your appeal to try to find a lawyer?
Brent T. Geers' answer When you do not appear in court, you give up your right to claim that you had nothing to do with it. If you failed to appear, you were probably defaulted - which is what happens in a civil matter versus a bench warrant for your arrest in a criminal matter. When you are in default in a civil matter, it works as if everything the plaintiff said you did in the complaint is now true.
You should also review your paperwork to make sure that you were appearing for hearings in both matters. It...
Brent T. Geers' answer Criminal and civil liability are two different things with very different burdens of proof. You can be civilly liable without being criminally liable. That your ex wife was criminally charged has nothing to do with your civil liability, although you may have a claim of indemnity against her for what you end up paying toward this.
More importantly, your case sounds like it's post-judgment, and you had a direct appeal. You could look into filing a motion to set aside the judgment, but...
