Rule 55 Motion for Default for failure to plead or answer the complaint after proper service of process. Be aware that you may succeed in having default judgment entered on issues of liability, but damages will still have to be proven.

zoom court hearing recording was sent to someone who wasn’t the party involved. The recording was sent to me by someone who wasn’t involved and was sent to them by the person who was involved in the case.
It seems to me, the appropriate party to complain to is the court itself, since the offense, if any, was a violation of court rules established to protect the court process. You (or your lawyer) should provide the evidence of the improper party's involvement in the hearing and recording of it...Read more »
You posted this as a personal injury question, and appear to be looking to sue based on conduct that would be a crime here if committed here, but the conduct was committed in a foreign country where it is not a crime. Not all crimes give rise to a civil cause of action. Criminal prosecution can...Read more »
Your understanding is incorrect. You are not at the same kind of risk if you give proper 30-day notice and then file suit. That will merely be dismissed. But, if you attempt self-help, you are at grave risk. Buy a consult with a lawyer. For starters, it's a 90-day notice. Next, if the property...Read more »
I have disgruntle non-communicating holdover tenants with only one name is on the non-renewal lease. I am not accepting any more rent and would like for them to leave. Do I still need to wait the 60 days after the moratorium ends to file. I don’t intend ever to use property for rental again. The... Read more »
Take the rent money. You still need to wait after the moratorium. Holding over is not a valid basis to evict in DC, but you can evict if you plan to use the property for personal use. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
Yes. If you try to provide notice or file with the court before the moratorium ends, the court will either reject the filing now or reject it later. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
I had a fling for a couple of months in Mexico. I am an American living in DC and he is a Canadian. We fooled around and filmed it, I don't have a copy of the video. I noticed he posted it on his Only Fans without my explicit consent. He did crop my face out of the video and blur out both my... Read more »
The video appears to have been consensually made, so in most jurisdiction the mere creation of the video would not be a crime. You would need to ask a lawyer in Mexico whether that country prohibits the making of sexually explicit videos when both parties consent. Otherwise, it would not be...Read more »
It might be many things, depending on the facts. First, DC and Virginia are "one-party" audio recording jurisdictions, where only one person (the recorder) needs to consent to it, unlike in Maryland where it is illegal to make an audio recording of someone else without their actual...Read more »
If you don’t share your alien number, they can’t access the info. That said, few really know how to access. You must decide whether to stay, then risk detention and removal if the decision is against you!
If not, then it suggests that you were successful in getting relief, so you should...Read more »
The judge will consider the Motion to Withdraw. He or she will consider the reasons for the Motion, then make a decision of the Motion. The attorney who made the Motion still represents, you until the Motion to Withdraw is granted and ordered by the judges.
Common law spousal rights may give rise to a claim to a share of the estate, but it does not change title to real estate, so the Estate can sell the real estate and collect the sales proceeds into an estate account for eventual distribution to the heirs/legatees. in order to claim a share of the...Read more »

It depends what country you are from. You should look at the Dept of State's website for current COVID related restrictions. See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/ea/covid-19-information.html
But you should also consult with an immigration attorney if you...Read more »
No, but why not get a second opinion? Courts will not reopen statute of limitation cases unless there has been some very significant and unique issue. If , for instance, police actually hid evidence that might be the basis to reopen, but I doubt it. But ask some DC attorneys or attorneys from the...Read more »
Last year my employment was terminated by a non-profit based out of Washington DC. It was because I anonymously blew a whistle on my supervisor's conduct. I was told if someone were to call for employment verification, the organization would only give out the start and the end date.... Read more »
It is highly unusual for a former employer not to give verification of employment of a former employee. Usually the verification is very general, for example Mr Smith worked for Company A from Jan 1 2020 to Jan 1 2021. You would need to contact a licensed attorney in DC for a more in depth...Read more »
Most of the estate's value is the equity on the condo (cca 150 000 dollars. The home value is cca 520 000). According to that, my son's 1/3 should be 50 000 dollars. I am currently unemployed, but I have enough assets to keep paying the mortgage for some time until I hopefully find the... Read more »
By opening a probate estate, you can transfer or sell anything in your late husband's estate. What I don't understand is how you would be solving your economic problem by re-titling the home to your four-year old son. Once re-titled to him fully, it might be much more difficult to sell it...Read more »

You can do so if they are convictions, and you obtain certified copies of the convictions from the court, or perhaps if the convictions occurred in the same court you are appearing in on the protective order, you can reference those cases by case number and the court can check the dockets if they...Read more »
