It's a collection agency who is taking me to court tomorrow via a zoom call. I've not been able to pay on it due to everything going up in price and I live on a very low income and am behind on my water bill and several other bills. I was behind on rent until just recently, over a year... Read more »
Your inability to pay does not stop the entry of judgment. If there is already a judgment and you are up on a post judgment citation or garnishment, you should read and be aware of the exemption provisions of the post judgment code of civil procedure. Specifically, 735 ILCS5/2-1402 states at (b)(1)...Read more »

Investigators are generally able to identify those things, but in the absence of injuries, building/property policies could sometimes offer higher policy limits than vehicle policies carrying minimum statutory limits. Good luck

No, the people do not know what they are talking about. What they may be trying to reference is "Adverse Possession", you can look this up, but this is not applicable to your circumstances because you have just been a renter, paying rent. If you have a lease or rental agreement, you...Read more »
Recently, I had family photos taken by a photographer. Prior to the on site shoot the photographer and I discussed, through text message, watermarks on the photos as well as the use of the photos. He stated the final product would not have the watermark and we could use the photos at our... Read more »
You have a contract, I hope, which is written. The terms of payment are or should be stated, as well as what you are paying for exactly and what the photographer is to provide for that payment.

Fake account and I know who did it. I also feel this guy is scouting minors for trafficking I have emailed them over a dozen times n reported his account with no luck since 12/31/21. Not sure what else to do??
I'm not sure how TikTok would be liable to you. Most social media companies, in that finely printed terms and conditions no one reads when they sign up for an account, say basically "we're just a platform and not responsible for the content users upload".
I have reached out to the lender to repay the loan in full, in exact accordance with the judgement/court order. However, the lender is not accepting payment. They are just not responding. Is there a point where the debt can be cancelled due to not accepting payment in full or refusing to comply... Read more »
Debts just do not get magically canceled. If it is appropriate and cost-effective you should simply file for bankruptcy, but that cannot be determined here. The creditor is under no obligation to take payments, but will almost certainly serve you with an information subpoena. You can have a secure...Read more »

Likely depends on the purchase agreement, company policy, as well as the status of the part that was ordered.

What is your question? It sounds like your best course of action would be to address this issue with your university. Perhaps to the head academic advisor or to a dean of students. Many universities also have departments and deans specific to international students.
Not enough information has been provided. What is set in court in which both parties have filed continuances? Trial? A pre-trial motion? or what? Are you represented?
