I bought a car off of my ex while we were together. Unfortunately, I never got a written contract or payment receipts. I only have text messages of him saying he will sign the car over to me soon, me asking when he'd sign the car over to me soon, and practically begging for him to sign the car over... Read more »
If you have text messages showing that you paid him for the car and requesting that he give you the car, I would recommend filing an action in small claims court seeking your money back. The text messages will help you prove that you and your ex had entered an oral contract whereby you offered him...Read more »

Simply put, the Federal courts have original jurisdiction in cases and controversies which raise either a federal question, or in civil cases where the parties reside in different states and the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000. A typical unlawful detainer case is between landlord and tenant...Read more »

Last August I went to a city meeting. The parking lot was a mucky mess due to reconstruction. Leaving the meeting I walked across a grassy strip next to the parking lot to avoid the muck, stepped into an unmarked trench that lined a newly-installed parking curb, tripped and fell. The trench was... Read more »
A Missouri attorney could advise in the best possible manner, but your question remains open for two weeks. If there is no further medical treatment and no meaningful findings of injury in any follow-up examination, and these bills are the extent of damages, small claims could be an option. If...Read more »
I am being sued by Capital One for a credit card debt. I have 30 days to file an answer. I just received a letter from the firm representing Capital One with settlement options including monthly, lump sum or 3 month payment plans. However, there is a line stating that a consent judgment may need to... Read more »
Do you have anything documenting the agreement? Like a cancelled check she cashed? You would likely need to file a small claims action. But even if you win, all you are going to get is a judgment - which is little more than a piece of paper that says she legally owes you money.
I got away fiance in custody still. Since 6/23/19. Cop admits to breaking law by saying not in uniform. He didn’t show up in court. The judge keeps continuing court no deal offered, or bail reduction. Ineffective assistance of counsel. I’m witness but never on police report. I took the... Read more »
Without seeing the terms of the offer it is hard to say what you can or should do. Possible remedies range from getting your deposit back and declaring the deal ‘dead’ to forcing the sale, or something in between.
You need to consult with a local attorney in the area where the house is...Read more »
Ostensibly, yes. Just like any case, the constitution and the court rules require that you have to serve the person with the lawsuit. If you succeed, then you can proceed. Many small claims courts have "law clinics" for people representing themselves. There's some forms and resources available on...Read more »
If you do not have a written agreement your “landlord” has nothing to enforce if you move out. Just make sure there are no emails or texts that, if taken together, can show the terms of your rental. If there are, you should consult an attorney.
Contact a personal injury attorney that does product liability. It might be possible for her to recover; however, it's best to speak with a lawyer (and usually to hire them if you want the best outcome). Most personal injury lawyers get paid only if you receive a settlement; you don't pay them up...Read more »
This happened in Colorado, I now live in Kansas. I've asked to have a friend come by and pick up the dress. She says she never had anything. Can I sue her for the amount of the dress or the dress back?
Such a case could be difficult without some form of proof. A judge/jury would look at your assertion and the other side's denial, and not have a means of deciding the matter without some evidence to support your position. Good luck

Just about any attorney could write the letter you describe. I don't know what kind of working relationship you have with the shop, but it's possible that it could be more practical to simply contact them yourself in a less confrontational manner and ask them what is causing the delay and where the...Read more »
The police have received both of our statements where both sides state that he brake checked me intentionally. The insurance knows this and told me that because he intentionally tried to cause an accident they will only pay for half of my damages.
It does seem unfair. You could consult with a Wisconsin attorney. There is no mention of injuries, and I hope you were not injured. But keep in mind that if the claim is purely property damage, an attorney might not be able to handle it on at a typical contingency fee arrangement generally applied...Read more »
I am joint owner of a house in Indiana via a quit claim deed that states "joint tenants with rights of survivorship". The other joint owner who is my grandma is now in a nursing home and has severe dementia. My aunt took power of attorney over her healthcare and has filed a lawsuit against me in my... Read more »
If the deed is to you and your grandmother as joint tenants with right to survivorship, you own half of the property (the house and lot) and your grandmother owns half of the property. That's called an undivided interest because each of you has equal rights to the entire property. Indiana law...Read more »
I was bullied and terrorized horribly my senior year of high school for being African American, received threats, and more. My private high school did absolutely nothing on my behalf, or anything to protect me. Do I have the right to sue them? I have since then developed chronic depression and... Read more »
2 days after taking vehicle home, found out it needed a transmission. My salesman literally blocked me and my family from contacting him. So i filed a complaint with the Department of Motor Vehicles. 30 days later, expired tag, car doesn't move
You didn't ask a question, but I suppose you are asking, "Can I take legal action against the dealer?" In your situation, you can't get a quick answer on-line. You must sit down with an attorney who will review all your documents related to the transaction and discuss the details of the...Read more »
