She’s being nasty and wants the car back. I moved too Florida with family and I don’t have a way to get back down here if I go up there and the car is titled and registered too her and she just won’t come and get her car so if I hypothetically got towed for parking could it or she come after...

Sounds like you trusted the wrong person. The car is legally hers. If it was purchased in North Carolina, and you then drove it to Fla., you are at risk of her reporting it stolen, and you getting arrested for theft. You should immediately confirm with her, IN WRITING, the "deal" you...Read more »

When you need some type of relief for any situation arising during the proceedings, you first, in writing, seek agreement from opposing counsel, and if you don't amicably resolve the issue, you file a motion asking the Court to order the relief you seek. However, you would be very foolish to...Read more »

I need to produce cancelled checks showing payment. When I get them, do I need to send those copies to the defendant as well as to the court? If so, how is this handled. The court and defendant both have my exhibits - these would be an addendum to that particular exhibit. Thank you.
In small claims court, you generally are not required to provide copies to the other side before showing up for trial, but to be safe, you should ask the judicial assistant for the judge assigned to your case. Also, in a very small minority of cases, there are pretrial "discovery"...Read more »
My husband and grandmother are both on a mortgage. My husband as the main borrower. There was a disagreement and my husband stated he wanted her out of the house. The verbal agreement that was met is we would just buy her out. This morning she was caught on the phone trying to have his name removed... Read more »
Who is on the deed is the question. No one can simply put anyone out. There has to be a court action to remove someone from their residence, even if they are not on the deed. You cannot have her removed and she cannot have you removed. Even if she were to file a court action it would likely not...Read more »

I had a motorcycle up for repossession 2 years ago . It was parked on the side of my townhouse (no garages). It eventually was gone. Now almost a year and a half later I’m getting calls from collectors and repo saying they’re looking for the bike? I am very confused. I do not have it, and have... Read more »
Seriously? Your bike was stolen. If it had been repossessed, you'd know it. Now, instead of the creditor getting the bike back, selling it, and applying the sale amount to your loan, the lender (creditor) will probably sue you for the entire amount of the loan.
My wife filed for divorce, She has moved to the room above the garage. I went up there yesterday to get some of my things and noticed several containers full of pre packaged marijuana. There is also some sort of heat press there and lots of small vials, butane, etc.
That depends on whether you have any defense. If you're not sure if you have any defense, consult an attorney. If you know for certain that you have no defense, contact plaintiff's counsel to make an offer (for example, 50% of the total, payable in installments of $50 a month), and see...Read more »
