Anthony Marvin Avery's answer More than likely a Default Judgment for money will go down against you. The Judgment Creditor can then require you to go to Court to give sworn testimony where your money is, or go to jail for Contempt. Go to the Court Hearing.
Cary B. Hall's answer Potentially. You can also bring a separate small claims suit against him for your lost wages due to garnishment -- although that's only if there was a promise (and hopefully in writing) by him to pay for the car 100% and indemnify you. If you co-signed, normally you're on the hook for the car as well and you'll unfortunately be paying for your generosity . . . .
Timur Akpinar's answer I don’t practice in Georgia, but I noticed your question hasn’t been picked up in 7 days. If you want state-specific information upon which to base an action you are contemplating, check with a Georgia attorney. But as a general matter, I don’t believe school buses are considered a luxury in any state’s public school system(s). The basis on which they are provided generally seems to be governed by the policies or laws of a school district, city, or other government entity. A central...
You will first need to look at the agreement you signed with the handyman. If this guy was a one-man-band, then its likely that he didn't have you sign a contract. Just because it was an "oral" agreement doesn't mean that it isn't valid though.
Your remedy is your cost to finish the job. Your claim would be that of "breach of contract". I would first try to work it out with him if possible out of court, but you...
Timur Akpinar's answer As a general matter (and not necessarily your given situation), if an academic institution offered a program it clearly did not have, it could possibly constitute misrepresentation. However, in your specific situation, it could be advisable for you to consult with an attorney who would be able to examine all the facts and circumstances and evaluate the validity and costs of such a lawsuit.
Cary B. Hall's answer Hard to say, of course, given the extremely limited facts you've presented -- but I'll give it a shot.
Rights to his business? None, since it's his business. Marital rights? None, since you two aren't married. Sounds like you need to start taking some steps to secure your own present and future security. Best of luck to you.
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer I'm sorry for your loss and the difficult situation it has put you in. I suggest you consult with a DTPA (Deceptive Trade Practice) lawyer in your area; one who has experience in vehicles. I'm not a DTPA lawyer and the only reason it comes to mind is I know one in San Antonio who has a lot of experience with auto companies; if you were here, I would refer you to him.
Mark Oakley's answer The problem you will have is with transferring title. You will need to run the tags or, if no tags, the VIN, to try and identify the current titled owner, and secure the title transfer. If you can’t do that, there is a legal procedure set forth in the Transportation Code (link below) for the police to impound the vehicle and send notice to the last known registered owner, and if it remains unclaimed, to auction the car or deliver it to a scrap yard. That method may not result in your getting...
Louis George Fazzi's answer Generally speaking, the answer should be no. But without further details or facts about whether your son was dependent on you at the time of his death, I could not provide a more certain answer.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Responsible in tort to her (or her insurance company) for negligent care? No, particularly since her conduct (hiding her condition from her) is the primary reason he didn't know about it.
Peter Munsing's answer Primary and co sign are different. Look at whose name the title and registration are in. That's who is the owner. If it's him you have a claim for what you put into it, any insurance required etc. That would be a set off. Suggest you mediate with someone he respects.
