My stepmother gave me a property after my dad's death and now she is taking me to eviction court and the papers say possession only.
answered on Dec 20, 2022
I'm unsure of what you mean when you say she "gave" you the property. Did you receive a Deed to the property? I'm guessing not. If you were given a deed, then she would not be able to simply evict you.
Was the home held by your stepmother and father as joint tenants... Read more »
Recently i took a plea for a criminal case and received the final disposition now my license and other things have been suspended due to this case that wasn’t involved in the disposition my license is my way of working and the courts new this
answered on Dec 13, 2022
There is no case against the county. The court protocol of accepting a guilty plea is to place that plea on the record with a clear explanation of its terms, conditions and collateral effects on one's life. Also, that plea is given "freely and voluntarily," with all understanding on... Read more »
The mechanic had to move everything out in order to fix my transmission but I believe while doing that he messed something up because after that my cars Turbo started to fail (never had a problem with it) now I have a broken car and 3.6k down the hole. I called him and told him this and he took the... Read more »

Well, it appears that the mechanic did not do his job correctly. If the mechanic cannot fix the problem or reimburse you for your expenses, I would suggest litigating this matter in Small Claims Court. If the mechanic is unresponsive, you can let him know that you plan to file a case in Small... Read more »
She was very aware we were married. I just feel she needs to be held accountable as well!

No, you cannot. Illinois abolished its Alienation of Affection law a couple of years ago.
I plan on paying the debt. I just need to know how much time I have until the summons.
answered on Aug 1, 2022
Impossibly to say. Probably anywhere from a day to a month or two. Just depends how quickly he gets it moving.

Maybe. Before you go down that road, your best advice may be to have the car towed to the dealer before anything else is done. The dealer can tell you whether the heater core was properly installed and they should be able to explain how it would be possible to damage the computer while performing... Read more »
There was only property damage. I only have uninsured bodily damage, not property. I was never contacted to go to court, but I went for the first appearance and was told if I didn't show up for the trial, the other drivers case would be dismissed. Shouldn't the officer be there to testify... Read more »

Unless the officer witnessed the accident/collision he has no personal knowledge of how the accident occurred-----that is why you would need to testify at the trial on the traffic ticket. You can contact a lawyer in your area to discuss the pros and cons of attending the trial on the traffic... Read more »
There is a restraining order so this is why it’s difficult. What do i do about the car situation and the title? I believe he’s getting money from the insurance company.
answered on Jan 13, 2022
Is your ex your ex husband? If so, does the Divorce Decree state who retains possession of the vehicle? Is the restraining order against you or your ex?
These factors will have an impact on what your relief may be in this situation.
I recently found out about the suit & am trying to weigh my options. I’m thinking of motioning for an exemption/dismissal since I wasn’t served properly & my debt was sold to collections.

It appears that without proper and requisite knowledge of all your legal rights and obligations you will find yourself in a much worse legal position if you proceed without a competent civil law litigator licensed in Illinois.
We are going through a nasty divorce which entails financial abuse, psychological abuse, mental abuse and sexual abuse.

Your question is difficult to answer because your husband could not have filed a joint return properly without obtaining your signature on the joint return.
Owe $100 for a red camera fine. I contested and lost. It is impossible to get general help to appeal online from the law library as to what forms to appeal etc
answered on Jan 26, 2021
IMO- NO. What you are suggesting is a "collateral attack" on your traffic conviction. No state allows this. If you had a statutory time to appeal and missed it for a valid reason or the time to appeal was suspended due to COVID you should hire an attorney to represent you and make the... Read more »
I don't see how going through the administrative hearing to appeal a Zoom judge opinion of me owing a fine would help any.
So I want to sue the municipal with all the stuff I've been reading about feds probe red light programs in state and around the country

You first have to exhaust all other avenues of relief which includes appealing the administrative matter accordingly.

In order to receive Letters of Administration, you must first open a Probate Estate. I'm assuming that the decedent did not have a will, so you will be opening an intestate estate. You will need to provide an Affidavit of Heirship, an Oath and Bond, a Petition to Probate the Intestate Estate... Read more »
The lake county clerk’s office said they are not giving those out letters out which is impossible
answered on Nov 16, 2020
A petition, affidavit, consent of the remaining heirs and other papers need to be filed with the Probate Division of the Circuit Court. Once the Probate Judge reviews all of the papers and they are in good order, he/she will make the appointment of independent administer.

You can sue anyone at anytime for anything, but that does not mean you will be successful.
I found out my bf was cheating on me and out of rage I keyed his car. He asked for $400 to repair damages, and agreed that if I paid him immediately he would not pursue legal charges.

Civil matters do not carry an jail time but if he reports this matter to the police, you are looking at a Misdemeanor offense at the very least. Also, you should never admit to an offense online. If possible, you should figure out a way to remove this post.
What can I do? I call weekly and keep getting the same answer of someone will call me back or they'll send an email.

Depending on the terms of your "roommate agreement," which I assume would be similar to a sublease form, you should be able to sue the roommate for unpaid rent owed to you.
The landlord/owner may not be able to sue the roommate for his portion of the unpaid rent, but if you have... Read more »
