More info is needed to properly evaluate your case.

However, it is always a good idea to contact a local attorney that handles these cases in the courthouse to which you are ordered to appear.

Louis George Fazzi's answer
I have so many questions that need answering before I could even attempt giving an opinion. Does the civil appeal have anything to do with being served a 5 day Notice to Vacate (or Quit)? What is the basis of the Notice to Vacate? Unpaid rent? Something else? Options available depend on all the circumstances. Without knowing all the circumstances, any opinion would be quite limited.

More info is needed to properly evaluate your case.

this sounds like a serious case that needs a good criminal lawyer to go over all the facts.

What you are asking is akin to calling a doctor and asking over the phone to diagnose the pain in your stomach.

They need more than speculation. They need proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

It is one thing to arrest and another to convict.

Q: Hi, Article 1 of the California Constitution says: Californians have "inalienable rights". Who protects these rights?

Answered on Mar 22, 2019
Louis George Fazzi's answer
It is up to each citizen to protect his/her own rights. In order to do that, we all need to know what our rights are.

Rather than relying on "some attorney" out of context with your thinking or beliefs, read the California Constitution itself. It is freely available in any library or in the comfort of your own home if you have a computer and can access the internet.

Get yourself another advocate. You have no idea what has happened to your advocate. Maybe she was ill or in an accident. Before you even think about other remedies, find out what you can about your existing advocate, then take the appropriate action.

The short answer is no. You haven't said whether his business was sued or if your wife's grandfather was sued personally. In either event, his creditors cannot satisfy a judgment against anyone but the named defendant against whom they won the judgment, out of his or the judgment debtor's property.

I would think YES they have to "evict" you. That's likely to happen FAST. At 30+ years old, now is as good a time as any to go and grow up and join the adult community out there and experience the outside world! Sorry for your loss. Good luck with you!

Dale S. Gribow's answer
To properly answer any legal question it is necessary to ascertain more information. Are you referencing Consent to have SEX or Consent to Go On Your Property re Trespassing etc???

It is like asking a doctor over the phone what the pain in your stomach is, and whether he could cure it. The Doctor needs to get a more complete history, lab work, and X-rays etc.

I would strongly suggest you write out a detailed summary of the facts including your name, address, email, and the...

Depends on what the car is worth and how much is owed to you. Also I would need to know what the loan was for? Did you do work to the car and then you did not get paid?
