This is really something best discussed in detail with your attorney, rather than weighing the speculation of someone who doesn't have films or reports of your MRIs, CTs, X-Rays, neurological testing, surgery and post-surgery reports, and other important file documents. It's going to be up to you,...Read more »
I gave them a copy of the repair bill. I contacted multiple repairmen before finding one who could/would come. It's what I paid for the repair. What else do I need for court? If they sue, can I countersue for anything, because I suspect they are just threatening to sue to get more money.
I have little income. Live in a rent free Hud apartment because of my very low income. The only thing of value is the car. The book value of the car is $3500. I want to know if the car would be exempt from seizure??
Landlord also lives out of state in CA and will not provide us with contact information beyond his phone # and email address. The total of the security they have is $12,600, so it is not something that could be recouped. We have been perfect tenants for two years and worried that we are about to... Read more »
If you want to not pay rent for three months as a strategy, you can. You risk an eviction case being filed, but it will not likely be resolved in three months. But you would have to answer any summons.
The agreement was that "as long as I payoff the car loan within the first few months of the financed loan, the payoff price would be $7000" but if the loan wasn't paid within that time period the loan would be $11,500 (as it is right now). I signed the agreement after being told this. I recently... Read more »
Depends on the review, but they are probably seeking damages for defamation and harm to their business reputation. These are fact intensive and "truth" is an absolute defense. You need to get a lawyer to defend yourself or your company.

The key line of your post is your fault for not checking. As to the bank, you have to pay. As to your ex, if you are named in a bankruptcy as a creditor for this debt, it will be a discharged claim, and you cannot sue your ex.
We both are liable but he refuses to pay and that don't think it fair to pay for the whole thing myself. but now the loan has been reported to the credit bureau because no payment has been made. So would be able to sue him for have of the 8400 that is due now?
It's possible, but title to timeshares are typically takes with both owners being joint and severally liable. Meaning that you are responsible to pay if he does not. I suppose that you could sue on equitable claims, but it may be difficult.
In these situations, clients have often hired me...Read more »
