Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer No, you cannot change the locks or physically remove them. Your only legal option is to obtain an eviction at the eviction hearing that you already have scheduled. If you contact the police they will not act without an eviction order.
Timur Akpinar's answer A first semester property law class in law school could devote a month to this question. On a very superficial level, real property is land, buildings, and immovable structures. Personal property is property that can be moved. Naturally, there are many subtleties and distinctions when one looks more meaningfully at the concept.
T. J. Jesky's answer If you are represented by an attorney, and they know you are represented by an attorney, they need to go through your attorney to contact you. Otherwise, how else are they going to contact you.
Based on your commentary, it appears the want to settle with you before the incur court costs. It is your decision to settle or not. If they take you to court and they prevail, you might be on the hook for monies due and their legal fees they spent on this case.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer There is no hard or fast rule on abandonment of personal belongings in regard to a time limit. Abandonment occurs when the true and rightful owner intentionally relinquishes ownership of the belonging. If you are unsure if it is abandoned, feel free to ask that person if they want their stuff back or not.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer I'm assuming you're asking if it is worth your time to sue the newspaper for defamation of some sort. In most cases, the answer is no. If you believe that you have been substantially harmed in some way due to this false information, please feel free to consult with a local attorney for legal advice.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Several possible defendants. You need to consult an attorney who handles civil rights--for this I'd suggest you contact the Indiana Civil Liberties Union and ask for the names of "cooperating attorneys" who have been involved in false arrest cases. Another source would be to inquire of the National Consumer Law Center in Boston.
Chase T Wilson's answer The statute of limitations in Indiana for minors is 2 years after they turn 18, so you have plenty of time to file a claim. That being said, contact a local personal injury attorney immediately as the sooner you contact them the better they'll be able to help.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer There's no definitive answer that anyone here can give you. Attorneys all have different fees and fee schedules. Some may offer a flat fee while others ask for a retainer. Others may charge hourly and bill you later. The only way to get a definitive answer is to call attorneys and ask them.
Peter N. Munsing's answer You have a right to be paid the damage to your car. Your Apartment is habitable so why could you break your lease? Take a look at it--I'll bet under conditions that allow you to leave it's conditions making the apartment uninhapbitable, not a fire adjacent to your parking place.
Stuart Nachbar's answer Have the State Court issue an order coiding the judgment. You can probably do it with a letter with proof of filing. Call the state court clerk or judge's chambers that issued the order.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer What violations were you cited for as a result of accident? You can expect that your license will at some point be suspended by the BMV for failure to provide proof of insurance and likely will have to pay approximately $1000.00 in reinstatement fees to the BMV for no insurance. In court if you admit liability there will also be fine and court costs and possible suspension of license by the court. You should consult with a local attorney to see what other options are available in the county...
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer A settlement agreement isn't binding until it is signed. A 'proposed' settlement agreement is just that, 'proposed.' The plaintiff doesn't have to comply with the terms of the agreement because there is no agreement yet.
If the plaintiff is not responding, move forward with trial proceedings. Court deadlines are usually a good way to get someone's attention.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer It sounds like your landlord is attempting to avoid eviction with you by renegotiating your lease agreement, which is perfectly legal. You are under no obligation to agree to her new terms. If you do not agree to her new terms she must still honor your lease agreement have to evict you.
However, having an eviction on your record can be a black mark that makes other landlords uncomfortable to rent to you. If you want to stay in the house, negotiate with your landlord.
Assuming you are the restaurant in this case, if its true it is not defamation. Let's say for the sake of argument that this wasn't true. What are your damages in this situation? The post was up for only two hours. Can you prove you suffered any harm or damages in this situation?
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer You need to hire a child custody lawyer ASAP. If your ex is continuing to make false accusations and uses those accusations to prevent you from seeing your children against the court order but you cannot make a contempt charge stick then you need professional advice to figure out what is going wrong. Parents do not get to unilaterally decide to withhold visitation or custody rights.
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer Most definitely. Since the amount is rather low, you should most likely file in a Small Claims court where the limit for recovery is $6,000. Go to your local courthouse, visit the Small Claims clerk desk and ask for the proper form. The filing fee will probably be $125 or so but it varies from county to county. That will include the filing fee and service on the other party. Be sure to have the information of the other party, including their correct name and address. You will get a court date....
