I hired a auto detailer back in February and received interior steaming service to my 2014 Toyota Tundra. After the service got completed, I asked the guy if I would need to open windows of the vehicle making sure the seats and carpet get dried completely. He told me it was not necessary.... Read more »
if you have comprehensive that may cover the cost of remediation. If you paid him by credit card you should be able to get some more information. The zip code should allow you to figure if he's registered as a busienss. And yes, there are phone books.

I ordered a uber the driver came and as I was getting into the car he said that he accepted the ride my accident and that he was not taking it and canceled it made me get out. Uber then charges me a cancellation fee. I contacted them and told them I should not have to pay for a ride I did not take... Read more »
It does not appear you should have to pay a cancellation fee if you did not cancel the ride and the ride was not canceled because of something that you did. When you explained the situation to Uber, what was Uber’s reason for not refunding you the money? Was anyone with you when you attempted...Read more »

This isn't a small claims court matter; it is a criminal matter. You must speak with a criminal defense attorney without delay - either one you find on this site, one you find on your own, or one the court might possibly be able to appoint for your son based on financial situation.
This is not a securities law question; nor is it a small claims question; nor is it a civil rights question; so that only leaves criminal law--which is what you both may learn about very soon if you continue of the path you are taking.
My wife left over a year ago. Shortly after I allowed her to use the phone and now she refuses to return it. I've paid a years worth of service and a monthly lease payment on the phone. It's a galaxy note 9 not a cheap phone.
If you are still married, you have no recourse. The phone is marital property and she has every right to use it. She is not going to have to pay for the service, either. If you wish to end the marriage and separate finances, you need to file for divorce.
Let me say up front - I understand I should have done this differently.
My boyfriend at the time got dropped from the NFL, his mom passed away, he had horrible spending habits and got his car repoed. Under agreements made through text & verbally - he agreed to pay me any money back... Read more »
A verbal agreement can be enforceable. However, without additional information, I do not know if the verbal agreement that you had with your ex is enforceable. I would suggest that you consult with an attorney.
It is relatively inexpensive to file a case in small claims court and it is...Read more »
I'm sorry about your painful experience. As a general matter, these types of cases can be tough because the damages are transient and passing in nature. Attorneys tend to be more reluctant in accepting them than the more traditional types of physical injury cases.
I helped my ex- boyfriend after being dropped from the NFL by giving him numerous small lump sums adding to $3500. There was no written contract, but agreements through text messages & constant asking about repayment. I also let him stay at my apartment, took his dog in, let him use my car so... Read more »
Yes, you can take your ex to small claims court; however, stick to the evidence you have (like text messages) and do not overplay "the back story" or try to play the "poor pitiful me" routine in court.
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.
If the landlord has filed a dispossessory, you file your answer and counterclaim at the same time.
The counterclaim would include any repairs you made, the decreased value of your lease, property loss, personal injuries (if any), mental distress, inconvenience, and for wrongful eviction....Read more »
