Call the police - they might be committing criminal harassment and criminal threatening. This could lay the foundation for obtaining a restraining order or peace bond but also start the process of getting them the mental health care services that they need. You want the police involved to...Read more »
As a general matter, cancellation can mean termination of something, such as a membership or contract. Cancellation is generally deemed to be more permanent in nature than suspension. But it all depends on context and usage. Good luck
We are a salvage yard that sells used diesel parts with no guarantees to the public. We had a sale where the customer said we sold a faulty engine. The local magistrate sided with the customer. We need to appeal. Neither side had representation at the magistrate-level hearing where judgment was... Read more »
Just look for someone who handles civil litigation. You'll have 30 days from the date of the magistrate's judgment to file an appeal to the Court of Common Pleas in your county (likely Wyoming County). Your local bar association may be able to point you to someone as well.
This was my landlord's daughter who has never been a responsible pet owner. In those 4 years, she would occasionally ask if the dog could stay overnight with her and I would allow that but my place is her home. All expenses have been paid by me, including years of dog classes such as Nose Work,... Read more »

I co-signed a car for my son, we had a falling out and he dropped off the car at my house in April and I have been responsible for making the payments. Now he wants the car back and says he has every right to take it back. Please help
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.
My ex bf and I recently broke up. I gave him a chance, two chances actually, to come get his stuff and he just so conveniently keeps forgetting things. After giving him the chance to come and get it, do I have the right to throw anything left over out. The house is in my name and nothing states... Read more »
