What documents are required in order to renew your license is a question for the DMV. Your EAD may be automatically extended based on USCIS actions taken during COVID. More information is needed. I suggest you consult an experienced immigration attorney or do your own research and/or contact the...Read more »
Pr county website he has seen, No order/ judgement taken. I received notice of termination of month to month tenancy. On June 4th it Says rental of property has to be surrendered by 6/30/2021. This paper is not from a lawyer, court or service processor? Is this legal.
You are a month to month tenant, which means that the LL can terminate your lease with 15 days notice. You are not being evicted, so Covid has nothing to do with it. A landlord's notice that your tenancy is not being extended another month is not a document that comes via the court system. Its...Read more »
Landlord states I’m past due and owe 3200. last payment was 3000$ with stimulus money. I have three minor children, one of whom is diagnosed with a disability and receives SSD. Is the moratorium still valid on non payment due to COVID-19 hardship? I am SE EMPL, receive unemployment, have applied... Read more »
No, I don't believe the moratorium is still in effect. Basically, having already given you notice, what the landlord needs to do is file a complaint with the court and schedule a hearing. At or before that hearing, you must deposit the past due rent and other charges with the court. If you...Read more »
I moved into a nice, upscale apartment in Florida a few months back. I came home one day and my roommate had emptied his storage unit into the living room. It was so absurd you couldn't even walk through all the stuff. I told him this was unacceptable to which he replied, "They cant evict... Read more »
It is not clear what you want to sue them for; your roommate has too much furniture and he installed cameras which you took down already. I don't see how the furniture or the camera would be grounds for a lawsuit, but if the leasing company "offered to let [you] out of the lease if [you]...Read more »
I sold the business to my partner, he sent me an agreement and signed it that he would pay me over 4 years and stopped making payments. Can I do anything to collect that?

If you have a lease with the old landlord, the new owner must honor your lease. When your lease expires, you must leave unless the new owner and you enter into a new lease. The owner is not obligated in any way to let you stay 1 minute after your lease expires. It's up to you to find a new...Read more »
Probably until the end of March, but the new owner must give you notice. Assuming notice is furnished according to the statute, the answer is yes - you can be forced out, Covid or no covid. It doesn't matter if you've been there 15 years or 15 days. Selling the house "as is" has...Read more »

It depends upon the notice provisions in the original lease (rental agreement), specifically how long of a notice of non-renewal the student/tenant must give. And, of course, this is assuming that the January/February and May notices by the tenant were in writing.
Got hired on into a 3 assistant position. After Covid, was down to myself and 1 other assistant. This assistant would call out/quit/not show up 2-3 times out of the week on a weekly basis.

No, it's apparently not discrimination on the basis of race, sex, or other suspect classification. Other than that kind of discrimination, an employer can employ, or not employ, whoever the employer wants. And no, they don't have to pay you for, in effect, working multiple jobs at once.

While I can see why you are concerned, as far as I have heard or read about, none of the provisions in the federal government's PPP or stimulus legislation provides tenants any protection from this unique situation.

Relocations are moving more than 50 miles from where you lived at the time that the parenting plan was entered. The move is not 50 miles from the Father.

If an eviction action is filed against you, you will have a trouble finding any...Read more »
It depends on why the locks were changed. Many associations have closed their amenities due to COVID-19. Florida Statute 720.116 gives the association to do whatever is necessary during a state of emergency for the safety and health of the membership.

You need to read your agreement carefully. He is not "off the hook." However, if the agreement says he pays the daycare directly and the daycare closed then he can argue that he does not have to pay. You may need to go back to court for clarification or enforcement. What he did or is...Read more »
