Wife & I rented a home with a friend during the beginning of her divorce paying all initial costs, etc. After a short time, it was clear it would not work. After multiple attempts to discuss options, the only option she would agree to was her keeping the home. This meant having us replaced on the... Read more »
She can report anything she feels like, but I suppose you're asking if you are at some kind of legal risk if she does. It's unclear from your description if you're talking about just one solitary email asking for payment that triggered her reaction, but if just the one, there should be no legal...Read more »
I was renting a room for the past three months and it has come to my attention the Home Owner's Association wants me to move. The person who was renting me the room knew he wasn't supposed to do this. Is this fraud and can I get my three months rent back? I am a senior citizen, disable, and my... Read more »
No, this sad behavior cannot be fit under the umbrella of “fraud” either by the renter or by the HOA. And even if it could you would lose because you received all you expected and all you were entitled to receive: three months of a roof over your head.
i was served notice to appear for a civil suit (credit card debt). I immediately called the creditor and paid the debt. I then received a dismissal letter. The pretrial date was 2/12 but on 2/11 there is a court document for voluntary dismissal with prejudice from the plaintiff. Since it was... Read more »
You are correct that you don't have to appear after dismissal. To have peace of mind, however, you can check the on-line court docket and see all filed court orders. Google: court clerk records search [insert your county]. Then look for civil court records. Then find the search field where you...Read more »
Judgement was done back in 2008 for sears credit card. Recently I got this Subpoena to submit all my personal bank and work and tax info. I do not see how they are able to demand my personal information. This is from the attorneys in Tampa fl that have sent this. Do I have to send this... Read more »
If Sears sued you for the credit card debt and if the Judgment against you was entered in 2008, then it is still good for another 8 years under Florida law. However, if the amount is significant you should hire a collections defense lawyer to review all the facts before responding.

I feel like no matter the Signed contract agreement stating no refunds, non refundable, no exchanges... the CC companies always follow suit with the client and we loose thousands of dollars when they don't get their way or don't like the rules. Despite agreeing to them and signing the wedding gown... Read more »
You might wish to add to your contract, if you don't have it already, an attorney's fees clause that states in the event you must take collection action and incur attorney's fees, the debtor is liable for those fees. You should have an attorney draft it. You might also wish to have a big sign in...Read more »
Today my pharmacist tells me that because of two medications that I'm taking I do take a narcotic pain medication as I've had 4 back surgeries three of which have been in the last 2 years anyways she tells me that I have to buy Narcan by next month or she will not fill my prescription even though... Read more »
Unless the pharmacist is a wacko, she's likely making that statement due to something she sees on her computer system for your medical instructions. It's doubtful that she would be risking her license by lying to you. Have you tried another pharmacy? If a second pharmacy says the same thing,...Read more »
I have an experts report stating that’s not my father signature but the girlfriend and her daughter are selling all his merchandise from the thrift store & we are waiting for a hearing from the courts. Is there anything I can do to stop her and her daughter until the hearing is set?
If its your father's estate you are presumably an interested person. Go to a probate attorney and petition to open the estate, get appointed personal representative and ask to either continue or close the business, then you can try to have the girlfriend account for what was sold and turnover...Read more »
Most Florida lawyers are NOT from Puerto Rico and thus have no idea what the laws of Puerto Rico have to say about the obligations of children to be responsible for their elderly father. Search for a Florida lawyer who advertises their ability to practice in Puerto Rico.
If multiple insurance companies are being sued and 1 settles, and the settlement check put in escrow by attorney. Client then fires attorney and hires new attorney who takes over case. Can the fired attorney continue to withhold the settlement and for how long... or does fired attorney have to... Read more »
There may be circumstances in which the attorney can hold the settlement funds in his/her trust account, pending global settlement of the case, but if he/she does, he/she must fully communicate with you the reasons for doing so, and might also need to file a motion in court to determine what to do...Read more »

My ex has been fraudulently receiving medicaid benefits while she has been running a lucrative side business and I have the PI reports. I have never... Read more »
Even if your attorney has moved to withdraw, she is still obligated to respond to this motion until her motion is granted. Condition your consent to withdrawal upon your being given sufficient time to find another attorney and for that attorney to respond to the pending motion.
I need a blank interrogatories form to serve on my defendant in Orange County (FL) Civil (Small Claims) Court. I tried the internet. Can't find it anywhere. Do you know of a site where they could be printed out?
