If you have a prior felony conviction, does it impact your eligibility for a last name change? If the case is 10 years old but the person wants to change his/her last name to match their family surname, will a prior conviction hurt these chances?
Yes, there are more conditions and the judge has more latitude to decide not to grant the petition. If a person files the proper documents, and the change benefits the person and the public, then the court "shall" grant a name change. However, if the person is a convicted felon, the...Read more »
Apt did not use contracted towing company as what’s listed in my contract and outside buildings. They will not tell me a reason my car was towed.

A: Yes you have a right to say no. She has a right to say “screw you” excuse my language. And both of you have a right to file for divorce. This isn’t a legal issue, it’s a marital issue. You have a right to agree or oppose to anything you want during the marriage

My former attorney filed a motion for summary judgment before withdrawing to finish it but the opposing party responded by submitting exhibits but they were not in his name so it was dropped. He never answered the admission or anything, he has nothing on why he sued me. So how do I respond. With... Read more »
Unfortunately, there is no way to know the next action that may be required without reviewing all the pleadings. If the Motion for Summary Judgment was filed, and a response filed, was there a hearing? What was the ruling? What fact issues were raised in the response, and can they be resolved?...Read more »

Presumably you want to evict? Start by sending a 30 day notice terminating the lease, and then file the eviction. Otherwise you'll have to deal with the CDC order providing protections to tenants who are being evicted for non-payment of rent.
Contact the secretary of state for the state in which the company is formed, or is operating for the registered agent and registered office. There's no need to look for the legal department, as the registered agent is the one you need to serve with the suit. It's not clear to me whether...Read more »

The answer depends on why the case is being transferred. For example, it might be transferred to another judge for a variety of reasons. It could be transferred to another docket if it were put on the small claims docket in error. It might be a scheduling issue.
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. If you consulted with attorneys who handle civil litigation, they should be able to advise. They could also identify necessary measures to be taken, such as notifying banks and other financial institutions. Good luck...Read more »

Can you be arrested? Apparently so. I think what you really mean to ask is whether they can make the charges stick. I'm changing the category to criminal law. Call a criminal defense lawyer immediately and stop posting anything at all about this incident on the internet.
Sorry, without more details it's impossible to say what actions might be necessary or appropriate. If you're in litigation, you will need an attorney to represent your interests. They can review the order and status of the case and take the appropriate action if the order should not...Read more »

The deceased person never fulfilled their obligation, and we signed a contract. She was the sole owner of the business and the probate process has just been initiated by her husband. The administrator has been assigned yet either. Could I still sue her business and her estate in small claims court?

Once some one is appointed as executor or administrator, you can make a claim against the estate, and sue the executor or...Read more »
