If you do not respond the lawsuit filed against you, the plaintiff can obtain a default judgment against you. More information is needed to provide you with specific advice. You should call an attorney and get an evaluation of your situation.
I loaned my ex 6k and got a loan for him. We had a verbal agreement for repayment. He was making payments but recently stopped. I have emails where he admits to owing me but now refuses to pay. Can I sue him in Ohio in small claims court?
You can sue him. The emails will help. You probably want to sue in the civil division of the municipal court and not small claims because $9,000 exceeds the jurisdictional limit of $6,000 to be considered a small claim. You can sue in small claims but the court can only grant a judgment up to...Read more »
You may have a claim for breach of contract and/or a claim under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. You have not given a lot of details such as if the contractor has completed the work that you have paid him for. I would suggest reaching out to an attorney for an initial consultation.
Can I cancel the agreement? And he won't give me any receipts that I paid him up front...and he also lied about the amount he promised my bf working for him. We were helping him out with letting him have the job and getting his name out there and he tried to pull one over on us...do we have... Read more »
This question depends on the nature of the transfer. If she truly gifted it to you, there is an argument it is yours. If she merely intended for you to use it, then it may still be hers. But, as the owner of the plan she likely has an undisputed ability to suspend phones she pays for.
I got into an accident, my steering locked up on my vehicle and I went into another vehicle pulling out of a gas station. Damaged were done and I didn't realize my insurance that I paid for 6 months in advanced had expired a few weeks prior. The other party has State Farm insurance and they... Read more »
Only an Ohio attorney can advise here, but your post remains open for two weeks. You should consider reaching out to an Ohio attorney without further delay. I'm sorry, but from what you describe, it appears that you are being sued by the other motorist. Writing an informal note as you describe...Read more »
Hello! My ex-fiancé told me after we broke up that he would bring me my things as I left quite a bit at the apartment we shared. It has been over 4 months now and he has not brought me my things or responded to my texts. I don’t mind having to go get my things but I don’t know if I can legally... Read more »
I suggest contacting the landlord and coordinating a time to obtain your things. You can also reach out to law enforcement as they often act as a peacekeeper to ensure no issues arise while you are retrieving your things.
We engaged in sex multiple on many occasions before my knowledge of his status and he had even avoided using condoms beforehand as well.

They told us we did NOT have to get vaccinated then an hour later told us that we DO need to get vaccinated against COVID-19. I was accepted for a month and a half with a down payment before I was informed that I needed to get the COVID vaccine, so now it’s crunch time and I either get the shot... Read more »
He co-signed a loan 9 years ago. My husband got laid off from his job and couldn’t make the payment payment anymore. When we tried to reach out to him he had changed his number. Then we found out his new number and contacted him. When my husband tried to discuss the money he owed him back he said... Read more »
There are many potential issues here. The co-signer is responsible in the event that the signer cannot pay. It sounds like there is no contract between the signer and co-signer in the event that the signer defaults. You should talk to an attorney about whether or not your husband can be sued for...Read more »
For said car down payment my credit is horrible so we did it in her name. She decided to move to another state on an optional relocation at her job i did not follow. My name is not on the car. Ive got no access to a car now am i able to recoupe any money legally?
You could sue her for the money in the local court where she lives now. But she could claim it was a gift. If nothing is in writing, it would be her word against yours. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local attorney where she now lives who can review the situation and advise you.
An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You could repost under the Bankruptcy category.

Attorneys who handle animal/dog law matters would be able to advise best, but you await a response for four weeks. Although we see our animals as family members, the general premise is that they are considered property. So it could probably be argued that the other person did not expressly abandon...Read more »
