If she does not return your dog, you may apply to the court for an order of contempt (i.e. that she did not comply with the court's order) and serve it on her. There will be additional legal penalties imposed on her for doing so.
It depends. If pictures of your dead son and message that you're a "killer" were only sent to you, that's not defamation unless it was "published" (sent to other persons). Also, be aware that if you display or otherwise disseminate the pictures and message to someone...Read more »

For one thing, she borrowed money from me claiming that she will pay me back double in a quick amount of time…I have proof of this contract. A great deal of time has... Read more »
If you sue her for Breach of Contract you can then ask her questions in "discovery" to try and find out her financial position. You could then take her deposition and ask further questions. Talk to an attorney to see how viable your case might be.
You have 30 days (if served by hand) to respond to the complaint. If an amended complaint was filed, you have 30 days from the date of service of that document. But if no amended complaint was served on you yet, you can always call/email the attorney for plaintiff and ask for service of the...Read more »
The plaintiff in my case has been ProPer since filing. At the deposition he brought an attorney who was directing the questioning. There is no attorney on record. Had I known the plaintiff had a lawyer I would have hired one for the deposition.
Yes, once a party representing themself hires an attorney, their attorney must file a Substitution of Attorney with the court and send that to all parties in the case.

Only if that person has opted out of the class can they collect a separate judgment against you for the same claim. If their claim is different, they may be entitled to a judgment for those other claims.
What happens when they file another proof of service (whether or not you actually received proper service) and the court accepts it as valid service, and they obtain a default judgment against you, and start garnishing your bank accounts or pay checks?

If you have a judgement it's usually for 10 years. You can then re-new for 10 more years but have to pro actively deal with it. It's not automatic.

If your car is worth $10,00 or less, you can sue her in Small Claims Court, which does not allow lawyers. It's somewhat like "Judge Judy" in that people answer judge's questions without a lawyer present. Most courts have a self-help section on their websites and self-help...Read more »

It sounds like you need to hire an attorney to help recover your vehicles. If the vehicles were truly on private property and were owned by you, the police should have no reason to inspect or tow your vehicles (absent there being some safety issue being caused by them).
An IFP, mentally incompetent plaintiff ADA case was filed in federal court. The 9th Circuit reversed and remanded for me to be appointed Guardian ad litem and the case is moving forward. The State Bar's policy prevents due process and equal protection for those requiring ADA assistance to... Read more »
A Guardian ad Litem can not act "in pro Per", but must be represented by counsel. This policy is not something invented by the State Bar. See, for example, the admonition contained in form MC-050, regarding substitutions of attorney. ("NOTICE TO PARTIES APPLYING TO REPRESENT...Read more »

You should certainly demand that they return to fill in the hazardous condition they left on your property. If they refuse, you should get a quote from another contractor to fill in the hole so you have an amount to demand the septic company pay you (presumably in small claims court) if they...Read more »
My fiancé and I own a house together. We are splitting up. He wants to buy me out and said he would pay me for each month we’ve lived there. So I’ve paid $650 for 28 months so it comes out to $18,200. Is this the correct way to buy someone out? I’ve been researching and feel it should be a... Read more »
Yes, if you own the house jointly and it has increased in equity since buying it, you should ask for your 30% of the equity in the home. He may be offering to pay you for the months you've lived there to try and avoid having to give you your fair equity in the home. Of course, if the equity...Read more »
