I took a car driving perfect into Midas to have spark plugs changed they changed all 6 and 1 coil. Then I drove it from NC to FL and broke down on the side of the road. I had it towed to another Midas and they said the catalytic convertors had blown and needed replacing after further inspection... Read more »
I'm not hearing why or how the catalytic converters "got blown" and why you need a new engine.
In order to make a claim you will need a mechanic to say what it is that caused the damage to your vehicle. To do that someone needs to say and explain how it happened. You change 6 plugs and a...Read more »
It sounds like you've received valuable property by mistake that does not belong to you. At a minimum, you likely at least have an obligation not to use that fuel.

Yes. Judgments can be recorded as liens against any real property owned by the judgment debtor. If you bought a house in the same place were the judgment was entered, it is already a lien on the house.
Hey! I hadn't really expected an answer. Especially not so quickly. Thanks. So I wonder if I'm pushing my luck to ask another related question? If the default judgments, expired, or were not renewed, can the accounts that the judgments were for still be collected on, by a 2nd or 3rd, or 4th... Read more »

The person who owns the Bronosonic trademark is taking money from people online for neon signs via Neon Signs in US and not shipping them out. The address they've listed on their website doesn't exist and I've tracked the IP address of their emails to China. Can you help?
It depends on the contract. If you have the right to sue in the US, you might get a default judgment and then execute on the trademark, though that will be complicated. You might then be able to get a restraining order on the web server advertising your trademark, and then go into the Bronosonic...Read more »
In 1996 I had a judgement against me for the first time from a car I purchased in 1995. I thought I would wait the 10 years and in 2006 they renewed the judgement. I was told they could do this only once so I waited another 10 years. In 2016 they served me with another judgement. Is this legal for... Read more »
A judgment can only be renewed once for a maximum of 20 years on the judgment. An attorney would need to review the documentation filed in 2016 to see what options are available to you in terms of resolving the 3rd judgment.

You can certainly file a quit claim deed releasing you from the property. However, you'd likely be giving up a major source of leverage against him in the divorce if you plan to do this before filing. Also, it seems you are likely still living together in the house. If so, you will not be...Read more »
Asking that someone accused of shoplifting not be allowed into a private business really has no connection to the criminal charge. The owner or manager could in essence trespass that person years after the criminal case is resolved.
Sure if you can prove it and have the funds to locate and undertake a suit against them and / or can find some group or agency willing to go after them in a civil and / or criminal capacity on your behalf. Best of luck.
If you are not in default of the contract, the vehicle cannot be repossessed. There may be other terms of the contract that can cause a breach other than missing payments. Things like the failure to insure the car probably cause a breach of the contract, but it will depend on the terms of the...Read more »

I was in prison when granted. N issued. Now out and was served to list my exemptions. But all time to appeal n plead my case has passed. How is this legal without me being able to plead my case or argue the fact that the balance is more than what I actually owed. Also I'm the co signer..
