I hadn't spoken to my husband for 8 months when he died 5yrs ago & his sister voluntarily paid his funeral bill w/o asking me for reimbursement tho she asked me to sign consent for cremation as next of kin. No probate was filed; I didn't think he had anything to his name. I recently found out that... Read more »
Yes, there is a statute of limitations; it's four years assuming there is no written agreement. But the sentence "Or my agreement that I repay her?" raises a question; was there such an agreement? If not, you probably would not be obligated on the original claim anyway; you were not legally...Read more »
This person accuse me of stealing something. Then they said if I paid for I can continue to live their. When I could not pay them the money they locked me out of the house and kept every possession than I own. Is this even legal and can I get arrested for something then I did not do. And how do I...

Typically there are two common ways one could be arrested. The first way is if the officer has probable cause to make an arrest. In order for the officer to have probable cause to make an arrest, the officer must have credible facts and circumstances present that would lead an ordinary prudent...Read more »

Simply put i called the proper people got towed back to their shop and the guy got mad cause i... 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.
I live in the UK now, and I am hoping to resolve it as I am planning a vacation to Florida but I am aware there could be a bench warrant for me as I couldn't attend the hearing. I work part time and can only afford the original amount but I am willing to pay monthly should discover card be willing,... Read more »
There is no bench warrant out for you for a credit card financial judgment, the judgment is good for 10 years and then 10 more if renewed. You may want to start by looking up the case online with the clerk of the court in the county where you lived and see what it says, you can also call the clerk...Read more »
So here is my issue. 3 months ago I moved out of an apt at the end of the lease and I got a bill of $725 minus 150 from the deposit they already kept, so 575. $500 are for the carpet. My problem is that the manager assistant told me a few months before that they were changing every apartments... Read more »
Free practical "opinion": Since you lived there for at least a year, and since you walked away expecting the landlord to keep your entire $150 deposit, it sounds like you must have known that leaving without cleaning the carpet--which is a standard clause in every lease--because you thought you...Read more »
This is not the first time a vehicle has been damaged this year. The tree is clearly dead and the landlord has done nothing to remove it. He said he has no insurance to pay for damages and there is nothing he can do. What should I do?
The first option they gave me was to pay for the computer outright, $500 and I could do what I wanted with regard to repairing it. So I would be paying between $750-800 for a $500 computer. Or I could pay to have it repaired, send it back to them, their tech person would check it out to see if... Read more »
Because you did not say whether or not you caused the damage to your ex employer's computer I am assuming that you did. Therefore, I am sure you can see why your ex employer wants you to fix the damage or replace the computer. And since you have several choices as to how to solve this dilemma, why...Read more »
That is not a legal reason to evict. The landlord's rights to terminate your tenancy are based on the terms of your written lease. If you happen to have a month-to-month tenancy based just on a verbal agreement, he may terminate the tenancy anytime he feels like it (and doesn't need any reason),...Read more »
I filed a small claims case and am currently representing myself. The defendant received his summons and has hired a lawyer. This lawyer called me and stated he would like to talk about the details of the case and resolution. Should I talk to him?
You need to file a probate petition. Assuming that the property is in Florida, you should contact a Florida attorney who can advise you how to proceed. It may be necessary to pay off the lien, but in any case I would doubt that the lien will show on YOUR credit reports.
