Timur Akpinar's answer Yes. Although arbitrators can follow the same rules of civil procedure and evidence observed in federal or state court, they generally have more leeway, based on the size and scope of the matter. The guidelines they follow generally tend to be less formal than traditional court rules. This is as a general matter. A Wisconsin attorney familiar with the particular arbitration forum could offer more specific guidance.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer IMPO, the arbitration clause in the contract is valid regardless of how bad the laptop was when Dell sold it to you--or how many terrible things Dell has done since--or how much proof you have against Dell.
Timur Akpinar's answer It could depend on the amount of damages at hand and the respective limits of each. Many attorneys provide free initial consultations in accident-related claims. A quick consult might help in the decision of which route to pursue.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer Probably. But you will probably need to coordinate the timing with the Court. You also must be in a Court that allows you to compel an arbitration hearing, or have a contract that has an arbitration clause in it.. Since I don't know what documents are involved (e.g. is there a contract with an arbitration clause in it). That's the best I can do.
William John Light's answer If the Default was entered, the Defendants couldn't file a Demurrer/Motion to Strike. I doubt that the Default was entered. You will probably need to Oppose the Demurrer/Motion to Strike.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer Only if the family member is part of the claim or lawsuit. I don't know which court you are talking about, but you don't have to hire a lawyer to represent you in an arbitration proceeding. Of course, it is better to have a lawyer with you. If you are not part of the claim or lawsuit, then the Court may or may not allow you speak at the Arbitration hearing. Usually only the parties to the lawsuit can appear in Court.
Timothy Denison's answer Reasonable I’d determined the the facts and circumstances surrounding the issue. It could be 30, 60, even 90 days. Bottom line, if you refund the money, they will likely dismiss the charge.
Arthur Calderon's answer This is horrible! Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. That being said, because you are talking about a school, there are some very strict rules that you need to following order to preserve any claim.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer A warranty deed should cover the real property and any fixtures that are affixed to the property. Since I don't know who "the family" is, or how they relate to you, I cannot give you much of an answer. Also, you are asking me to address Texas law, which I am sure is different than California law. I would find a Probate lawyer and they will tell you much more than I can. Good Luck.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Mediation involves a 3rd party neutral professional. It seems you're considering a marital settlement agreement via negotiations with the dad. Child custody orders, including child support, should be issued by a Court to be legally valid. See: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/massachusetts-law-about-child-custody-and-parenting-time. You may be wise to have a lawyer handle these negotiations, draft a proposed settlement agreement, and file it in Court seeking an Order on the agreed terms. This...
Mark Oakley's answer Try to find a lawyer in the jurisdiction where the estate is filed, for convenience. Most estate lawyers understand special needs trusts. You cannot solicit (and attorneys cannot solicit) business on this site per the site rules. You can, however, call lawyers who answer questions on this site, and discuss your case, or use the search function for locating a lawyer in your area to call. Then you can make arrangements to meet with and hire a lawyer.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Mediation can be very effective. I recommend trying mediation as early in the process as possible, as you can save a lot of time and money if it works. You don't indicate whether there has been a court filing yet, but if so, the judge will actually order mediation. If a court case has not been filed, mediation may prevent the need for attorneys and it keeps the decision-making between the parties rather than turning that over to a judge.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer Most people become very attached to their pets. Since you paid the fees and "adopted" the dog, you should have some rights to at least visit the dog. It would be easier to work out a solution if both of you could come up with a plan for sharing the dog. If she absolutely refuses to let you see the dog, you could take the matter to small claims court. If you do, be sure to bring all the papers with you. Good Luck.
