We have lived with my father in law 8 years before he died took care of all the bills and 4 out of the 5 signed over that we can buy them out the last brother is in jail and won't sign or corporate with us

If you agreed to pay a certain amount per month, or per use, and you have never paid—regardless of whose fault it was—you still owe the money. If they are charging late fees, you might have an argument about that, but you must pay the cost of the parking you agreed to pay.
We had worked with this company, and thought we they were giving us a refund we didn't know about. They called a month later, saying they wrote the check to the wrong people. It was intended for a couple with the same last name. Am I obligated to give the money back for their mistake?
I recently found out I have a judgment that is affecting my drivers license so this is something I need to pay.

The original judgment may have been $6,600, but it’s been accruing 10% postjudgmemt interest annually since then, meaning it’s probably doubled by now.

Unless the concerned parent is a medical professional who learned the news in a professional capacity, talking with the parents of a child's boyfriend/girlfriend would not seem to violate any known privacy laws.
I sold my condo & uprooted my life to purchase a home close to my fiancés work in Potomac MD.

I now live in another state. I was told by an atty that the company was liable for the interest as well as the $2500 judgeement. The company at fault had multiple complaints and judgements against them as I researched things myself. I would love to get my money. Any advise?
She claims she is going to get her degree, make more money and pay it herself. But she won't say how much the note actually is, what bank it's going to, how much school is left, and when I wanted the account information so I could make the payment instead of dropping off the money, she...

I think the smart thing is to send them a letter certified mail return receipt requested asking them to pick up the property by some date in the future (the longer the better) and otherwise you are going to give the stuff to Goodwill (or whatever).
