The bank says I need a court order to close it. Balance is roughly $3,000. How do I get a court order?
answered on Dec 30, 2022
Actually, a court order might not be necessary. Call the bank's attention to Florida Statute 735.303 and send them an affidavit as set forth in that statute. The statute can be accessed here:... Read more »
My wife purchased items from an LLC, and paid upwards of $12000 for these items. After almost a YEAR of not getting the items, we asked for the money back, to no avail. We worked with PayPal and were able to retrieve half of what was basically stolen from us. We are still short $6000 and have been... Read more »

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. A civil litigation attorney should be able to handle this. Good luck

if your grandfather 'kicked' you out, I assume he had title, took you to court, and you have no claim to it. If that is the case, no, you apparently would have very little chance of success.
He said he would return them the next day. He claims to left them by a black bike in a campground. We searched the entire camp ground and no tools were located.
answered on May 24, 2023
You can sue the person in small claims for the value of the tools. Probably won't collect on this kind of a person. Suggest you don't loan a tool you want to keep in the future. Consider such a loan a give away. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
and travel plans. What do I do?
Also, my new vehicle will lose value after the accident. Can I recover the loss

Do you have comprehensive insurance on your vehicle? If so, have your insurance carrier take care of it. They should be able to recover your deductible for you.
Both paternal parents are divorced and have no legal court order to pay one another. Daughter is planning college next yr. Can mother obtain legal counsel and sue father in pursuit of college fees?
answered on May 16, 2023
Anybody can sue anybody else for anything. But whether the mother can prevail is a different story. Probably not.

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. If you authorized the cancellation, they would present that as a strong defense. If it was without authorization, it could depend on the extent of damages suffered. Good luck

Yes. If they "practice law" as defined by each state, and in particular if they practice before courts of that state, they have to be licensed to practice law in such state. If they practice before a federal court, they have to be licensed to practice in that court.

If you do something negligent, and someone sustains money damages, you would be liable. That's what homeowner's insurance is for. Who said you wouldn't be liable?

It's unclear exactly what you may be charged with. In any event, law enforcement agencies do not ask suspects to pay fines directly to the agency. I suggest that you contact the local office of FBI yourself, by looking up its number. Ask them if they actually have been contacting you; that... Read more »

If it's an "irrevocable trust", it would seem that the grandmother didn't have the power to modify the trust. Consult with an attorney.

Assuming that you didn't co-sign for any of the debt, no, should they sue her estate and obtain judgments, they would not be able to levy upon the house.

Of course, one would have to read the contract, but in general, if the roofer did the work the roofer is entitled to be paid for that work. Did the owners make a claim on their homeowner's insurance policy?

Since my money pays the attorney why is that not a conflict of interest if I sue the HOA.
answered on Feb 2, 2023
Did you tell the attorney something in confidence, believing the attorney was representing you? Or did the attorney give you legal advice? Only in one of those cases would it be a conflict of interest.

Normally no, you don't. Giving a gift transfers ownership.

I am fairly confident that there is no law prohibiting you from adding an orange tip.

A proposed order is an order you want the judge to sign.
When my wife left, she was a zombie. It took all of her personality from her. Took about a week to recover. Since then, she got help and went to therapy. She’s been doing great. Until this week. A month ago, our pharmacy said we were not allowed to fill her medicine for 90 days. I argued and they... Read more »

Sue the pharmacy for what; no proper medication for three days? Just go back and get the right prescription.
It is saying I must move to dissolve the writ of garnishment within 20 days

You need to file a claim of exemption within 20 days of receiving notice of the levy. You also might want to contact the judge's judicial assistant to see how soon a hearing can be held.
