The only grounds that you can use for a divorce in Illinois are irreconcilable differences. You should not dispose of any property. Wait until you have a court order regarding the property. If the house is titled in only your name and you acquired it prior to your marriage, it should be considered...Read more »
It depends on what the contract says and if your landlord is being flexible to the terms. Most leases clearly state and lease term (such as 12 months) as well as renewel terms (such as automatic renewal unless one party cancels in writing so many days before the renewal starts). If you are stuck...Read more »
I went to a company that told me a price of $1326 for the goods and services they are giving me before I signed a contract now that I have signed the contract and paid the amount $1326 I was told they are now saying that what I was told is not correct and are trying to charge me separately for...

If you signed a written contract you are bound by the terms of that contract. It does not matter what "they" told you; and it does not matter whether they gave you a copy of the contract you signed; why did you not ask for a copy?
I bought a brand new 10x12 prebuilt shed delivered to my property that leaked from day one. After a few half hearted attempts to fix it among several non returned calls and no shows the owner of the company said he would take it back and refund my money. That was 2 months ago every time I call him... Read more »
My sister took my wedding photos for free as a “gift”, but since then has decided she’s not going to give them to me. She won’t talk to anyone or listen to anyone who asks her for the photos. Many family members have offered to pay to see the photos but she refuses. We were married in a... Read more »
Unfortunately, no. The law does not provide for any way to enforce unkept promises unless there was an agreement and unless both sides received consideration. I suggest you try to compromise and at least pay the photographer something--because the photos are hers.
If a buyer makes an offer on a home that is contingent on selling their existing home and the seller accepts the offer, but then receives a second offer can they accept the second offer? If so, what happens with the buyer who had the first accepted contingent offer?
It depends on the specific language of the contract, and the duration of the contingency periods you describe. That being the case, I recommend you ask the attorney that is representing you in this matter, as he or she is most familiar with the transaction and is in the best position to provide...Read more »
I did pay for their service several years ago but did no business with them afterwards. They indicated the service has been continued as the contract indicated auto renewal. They wanted $999.99 a year since 2016. They offered to settle for several lesser amounts and wound up settling for $199.99... Read more »
It would depend on the terms of the agreement you signed. And it would also depend on how they were taking payment from you and if they can prove you were given services or the services were available to you during that time. You should seek an attorney to review your agreement--pay the hourly...Read more »
Resigned a lease together starting 5/1/19, on 4/21 she had all her things moved out and sent me an email. We are both on lease. There is a 5 month buy out or can try to sublet. I don't want to move due to time constraints and work. She wants out of lease. Rent too steep alone. Do I have any options.
You could file an action to force her to perform under the lease or for damages under the lease. You may end up paying more in attorney fees than you collect. You could point out to her that you can move out and she can take the lease over and try to solve it amicably.
I was curious if these digital platforms would fall underneath this clause if the manager uploaded the music, because while they are considered DIY platforms, technically they are creating a contract with the distributor whether it's Tunecore, Distrokid, CD Baby etc. Here's the exact wording......

Yes, the agreement requires the artist to pay commissions on contracts entered into during the term of the agreement. So if an artist enters into an agreement with medis company X during the term of the agreement, the manager would seek to collect a percentage of that income.

I am an international student on F1 visa. I have accepted a job offer from a company(in Illinois) for which I have signed documents such as employment contract and NDA contract. All these documents has clearly mentioned the nature of employment as "At Will" with no mention of notice period... Read more »
Since you did not mention a non-complete clause in the employment contract, I will assume that issue is no concern. Accordingly, unless you have received some valuable benefit(s) from the first company (such as a signing bonus, special training, valuable company equipment, laptop, etc.), there...Read more »
I am not licensed to practice in Illinois, but under Florida case law egregious non-payment of wages or salary such as you describe would negate the entire contract; and very few judges would allow the company that breached your written contract to prevent you from taking a job at a competitor,...Read more »
