William John Light's answer There is no bright line in CA as to a total loss. Usually, it is at 75% of the actual cash value of the car. You painting the care yourself doesn't mean that the cost of painting isn't included in the cost of repairs. It still has to be painted. You currently at 68% of ACV, and it probably goes over 75% once paint is included. Further, with an estimate of 68%, there are frequently additional damage that will be discovered during the course of repair, pushing the cost even higher. In other...
Mark Oakley's answer You may be too late to file a motion to vacate the judgment if you let a few months of wage garnishment pass before acting. There is a requirement that a party act diligently once they become aware to set aside a judgment that was entered without proper service. If you knew of the pending case before judgment was entered, then you probably are out of luck.
Genene N. Dunn's answer This is tough to answer without seeing the documents, but essentially it seems like it probably is not a valid holographic will. It is a requirement of a holographic will to be in the decedent's handwriting. The fact that it is not in her handwriting alone might make it invalid.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You could sue to cancel the false loan modification application, but you would still be liable on the original mortgage note. So, unless the terms of the loan as modified are tougher than the original loan terms, there wouldn't be any point in suing.
The problem with the original divorce terms is that, even if he were to file for a modification, there is no guarantee he would get one (particularly in 2009). You shouldn't have been required to quitclaim your interest to him until...
Gregory L Abbott's answer You can certainly talk to the landlord and see what, if anything, they are willing to do. But legally, you are likely on the hook as soon as you signed the lease. If you were unsure, you should not have signed until you were or you should have put a clause in that allowed you out if you wanted after inspection.
Michael David Siegel's answer As long as you make minimum wage, and have no contract for anything else (which you don't as the unkept promises are not a contract), then the employer can do whatever he wants. You can always quit.
V. Jonas Urba's answer Sounds like you work on commission su your employer must provide you with a commission sales agreement. It's for your own protection in case they dont pay accordingly.
You need to negotiate that not by email or hire someone to do that for you.
Otherwise consider getting a new job before you quit. If you dont have a term specific employment agreement they can change your duties and compensation unless they do so for illegal reasons. Call employment lawyers to discuss.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Without a written contract the photographer would be hard-pressed for a court to agree that this was a non-refundable contract. I suggest you contact a lawyer to write a letter on your behalf because it's apparent he's not just going to give you the money.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer I'm not sure what you mean by "formens scope", or "and new", but first, you should find out from the owner why he stopped payment on the check. If he wrote the check after being notified that half of the underlayment was not done according to the change order, it appears that he agreed to the work as done. If his explanation does not make sense, or if he doesn't explain, you may have to consider filing suit.
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer Well, first I don't know how you didn't live at the apartment complex when you said that it was YOUR apartment complex. The facts that the car was not registered and there were no updated tags will not help in court. You need to consult with local defense counsel if you can afford it. If you cannot afford it, then a district attorney or another local counsel on a list can be appointed to you. Does anybody know that you did it?
Thomas. R. Morris' answer I view this as a maintenance issue. Who, under the lease, has the duty to maintain the experior walls, doors amd windows? If the problem could be cured with repair, i and maintence is on the landlord, it may be his responsibility. Perhaps, however, it cannot be prevented at a reasonable cost and bats come with the house.
