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 when I... 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 he... 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 »
They also paid $1,000 by credit card for my license to be reinstated we dont have a written agreement on when or how to pay the money back i dont have the money to pay and he is wanting to have me arrested can i get into trouble is this a criminal or civil matter
You had an oral contract, he can file suit or petition the court for an arrest warrant. He will be able to provide the court with his evidence and you will have to defend your position. It may be best to see if he will take a payment plan before it gets really bad and you will have to pay the loan,...Read more »

I signed the bill of sale bc after that she was supposed to pay me. After filling out the bill of sale with all the info and signing it she said she didn't have the money, she was the last one to sign the bill of sale so I got a little upset for doing all that and then she said she has no money, so...

This isn't a divorce question. A bill of sale may be proof of payment, but proof of ownership is done by the title. You should go to the precinct and discuss with the cop's supervisor. If you still have the title and you didn't sign over to her, it's arguable that the truck is yours and should...Read more »

If you have filed bankruptcy, the automatic stay is triggered and stays all proceedings. No need to do anything today, but take a copy of your bankruptcy filing and tell everyone tomorrow at the 7/30 Hearing that you have filed. That should stop the proceedings. You really need an experienced...Read more »
