The victim is suing you or the insurance company? If it is the Victim who is suing, you need to know you have no coverage at least at this moment. As far as whether cashing the check means admission, it is arguable because they reject your application for the reasons they believe it is true. You...Read more »

Your best bet is to hire an attorney to give the notice that's legally required before you can file an eviction case, then to file the case on your behalf. No case can be filed unless the notice, in totally proper form, is given to the tenant. If you can't afford full services of an attorney, you...Read more »

Rental of tires is something I've never heard of. But I suppose that, if they put the tires on your rims and mounted the rims on your truck, they should have made sure the lug nuts were properly torqued.
If the document was filed in a court proceeding and it is provably a counterfeit or fraudulent document the correct thing to do is contact a police agency and a criminal investigation will be undertaken. If a judgement was secured in the underlying mortgage civil action then the correct thing to...Read more »

However, there are programs that MIGHT be able to provide a pro bono attorney. For a Miami case, contact the Miami-Dade County Bar...Read more »

You really should have a real estate litigation attorney represent you in a matter this complex. The validity of the mortgage should be one of the causes of action in the complaint if you are the Plaintiff or raised both as a defense and counterclaim to the action. The affidavit would only be...Read more »

A mortgage creates a lien on property. Documents recorded on the public records are presumed to be correct, unless someone brings a legal challenge to the document. So unless there has been a court order declaring the mortgage to be a forged instrument it remains a valid lien on the property,...Read more »
Before you sue for return of the dog, you legally must submit a demand for its return, which should be in writing with proof of receipt of the demand letter. If you hire an attorney to do the demand letter, perhaps it would work. If the demand doesn't work, you need to file what's called a...Read more »
I received a Complaint/Summons for a lawsuit by my former employer last Friday, e-mailed to me by the plaintiff's attorney. However, it was filed with the clerk exactly 20 days before he sent it to me, which is the same amount of time allotted to file an Answer. I have been homeless since I was... Read more »
The summons, together with the complaint, has to be served on you; email is insufficient. An officer of the law or private process server has to give it to you in person. The 20 days doesn't start until that happens.
Yes! However, collecting on a judgment against him is another story, assuming he has no property or assets in Fla. After obtaining a judgment in Fla., you would have to go through a procedure in NY to domesticate the judgment there. Maybe after he is served with suit, though, he'll want to make...Read more »

No, you are not responsible. If they foreclose, the court would give them an "in rem" judgment, ordering a sale of the property. If the proceeds of the sale are not as much as the amount owed, they could not seek a deficiency judgment from you.
I discontinued work with this particular client because I discovered he was committing what I was quiet certain was investor fraud and did not want this to affect my or my companies reputation.

Unless you sue the deadbeat client and receive a Judgment, collecting all the money they owe you is nearly impossible--especially without competent counsel to help you. Look for a good lawyer using the Find a Lawyer tab at the top of every page.
I am unaware of any federal district court in Florida that will excuse someone from jury duty because they "have been involved in a (sic) real estate litigation for 10 years as a defendant"--unless they are picking a jury for the same ancient case you are still involved in.
