I received a notification from the court of a lawsuit and I have 20 days to respond after the notification, but it's been approximately 11 days and I still can't find a lawyer. If I can't find one, what can I do?

An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks, and time is of the essence in your matter. As a general course of action nationwide, one could request an extension to arrange for an attorney. Most plaintiff firms would grant that courtesy. Reach out to local... Read more »

Yes. The minimum is $150.00. It is NOT anything less, regardless of the reason.

No, the storage facility must first send written notice via certified mail to the renter’s last know address.
I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend, both our names are on the lease. She ended up cheating on me and moving out after 2 weeks of living here. She says that she will not pay any rent and so far has refused to. The leasing office informed us on during the signing process on numerous... Read more »

It's possible that you have a suit against her for contribution, but just because you can sue someone doesn't mean that you are going to get anything from her. See a local lawyer for advice. This is not a criminal matter.
I hope you can cover the rent on your own.

Depends on what it was. Sometimes a missed hearing can serious consequences to your case, sometimes not.

If your case is an infraction and you do not pay by the deadline the court should not issue a warrant, though I have seen it done. However, your license would most likely be suspended. You should file a motion with the court requesting more time to pay and state your financial issues with paying... Read more »

There is no criminal conduct in what you described. Cease all communications with them. There is no money to refund.
Vehicle stored over 5 years with no payments or contact with owner.
Attempts to contact owner satisfied but unsuccessful. Vehicle valued under $700, not road worthy.

If the vehicle is abandoned, you can file a request for salvage title and obtain title to the make it your property.

An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. It would be difficult for an attorney to offer instructions of a general nature in such a setting because they would need to see what is alleged in the papers. It would be better to take the papers that were served... Read more »
Went to two different hospitals, billed for them and ambulance ride. I cant pay what they want, asked for a payment arrangement and what they wanted was too high. So I am sending in $25-50 each bill each month.
answered on Apr 9, 2020
They could send you to collections at any time for a bill that is not timely paid. However, keeping in contact with the company and continuing to make regular payments are good actions to take to prevent them from doing so.
I filed for child support again and was approved His support started in December and comes right out of his check to me . Will IRS intercept refund or is it too early . The court sent a letter in late December stating he owed That amount otherwise I wouldn’t have known

Based on your question it is a possibility his tax refund could get intercepted.
my husband is not on my credit card account and I never gave them permission to speak to him but they did anyways without my permission and they never even asked him the severity questions all the said was what is your name and then told him about my account and balance.
answered on May 20, 2019
Credit card companies are not supposed to do this; however, there is very little you can do about it, other than to pay off the credit card they are calling about. You can also report them to the federal agency that regulates credit card companies.
What is it called? I want to look up an example maybe to format mine similarly. Do I just write dear judge can you apply the extra month I served towards the bond at 20 dollars per day? Then send it to the clerk with my cause number?
I overserved my sentence by a month.
answered on Jan 27, 2019
You can't do that. The extra time you served is lost. What you might, perhaps, do is file a petition to modify the sentence with respect to the fine imposed. That is assuming you were assessed a fine at all.
The individual that signed the promissory note is currently unemployed and is unable to work at this time as he has suffered an injury while on the job. It seems that he does not have any other assets that I can put a lien on at this time.
answered on Dec 12, 2018
Sue and get a judgment anyway. In CA, it is good for 10 years and can be renewed for 10 year multiples in the future. CO probably has a similar arrangement. Good luck and God bless.
The lien would be placed as a means to pay off a promissory note.
answered on Dec 12, 2018
Probably not because worker's comp awards are generally protected from creditor's claims. WC awards are intended to compensate a person injured on the job and not to pay the worker's debts.
Bills were from 2 years ago and were sent to a collection agency and now to atty.
I offered to pay in full the amount minus the interest but was told that the collection agency is refusing my offer of 500 less because they want the interest. No judgement has been obtained.
answered on Oct 12, 2018
The attorney can ask for whatever he or she wants in order to settle the case. The incentive for you to comply is to avoid having a judgment on your record. If the attorney is asking for interest it is almost certainly the case that whatever agreement you signed for the medical bills included a... Read more »
Got notice of Motion for 41E dismissal today, September 22, and I'm not sure what it means. Can I fight this eviction as I was no longer under a lease or even in the property?
answered on Sep 25, 2018
There should be no need for an eviction if you have already moved out. If there is a hearing date, be sure to show up for that. That said though, if you got a notice of motion for dismissal, that means that one side is attempting to dismiss the case. Contact the clerk of the court to find out what... Read more »
