Preliminary Conference--Q

A:  Originally Posted by sfrank long story short, I am the Defendant: A summary judgement was filed and I answered and counter-claimed to the plaintiff, and the plaintiff lost the motion. Now I just received a Request for a Preliminary Conference. What does that mean and am I suppose to answer it? It was a collections matter. Thank you. If an answer is required, a general denial suffices. Now comes the defendant who denies each and ever allegation in the plaintiff''s petition. The above is a general denial. If it''s small claims, an answer is usually not required. The most important thing is not to miss any hearings or conferences. If you do, they''ll default you. Don''t let that happen. As far as the...

Time Frame for Hearing Requests by Atty

A:  ''Since my atty asked to be dismissed nothing has happened on my case. I feel like he has abandoned the case because the defense won''t go through with their buy out offer. '' There is no 'legal' timeframe, it's up to you and your attorney as to how your case is handled. As your attorney has requested to be released, have you had the converstation with him face to face and determined exactly what is to happen? Have you filed the dismissal/substitution of attorney with the WCAB and notified the parties? Your case may not proceed until this issue is straightened out between you and your attorney.

Advice on Suing in Small Claims court in Kansas

A:  You can sue up to the maximum of $4000. Court costs and fees for service, if you win, will be ordered in addition to that. You cannot sue for your travel costs to attend court. Those are yours to bear. You can get some general information at this link http://www.douglas-county.com/District_Court/DCClerk_Forms/Small%20Claims%20Procedure.pdf Consult counsel. "I was defrauded out of $4200 from an individual in Kansas. We had agreed i would buy a watch from him, however, he never sent the watch even after i had sent the wire transfer." That's not fraud; it's breach of contract. "Am I able to claim $4000 plus the fees of filling a small claims case? (i.e. serving notice and cost of filing ect.)" You can recover your filing and service costs on top of the $4000...

What is the procedure for serving papers?

Where I work, in the state of Florida, deputies will work late to get the papers served. im from philadelphia and served my sons mother papers that I filed at family court. the way I went about it was I called my district police office and told them I needed to serve papers. so about ten minutes later the police show up and I walked them inside and they served the papers. but in a little town like that you should be able to serve papers with police different ways in different places The length of time will depend on how easy it is to find the person. If they know the papers are coming, and don''t answer the door,...

Q: 

Serve Legal Papers

A:  The court is really only interested in one thing: did you receive the papers?  You obviously did in a timely manner and they will expect you act accordingly. This is not a technicality over which suits are dismissed. I'd answer in the minimum amount of time to be sure I wasn't penalized....

Q: 

What happens if I get served before her to appear?

A:  What matters is who filed first. Her case will be dismissed when you object. Who files first makes very little difference in the long run. Being served does not have to be in person. When you go and pick up your mail and you have court papers in that mail. You've been served. Also, you can be served through registered mail. Basically being served is just stating that you are in receipt of the documents. The most common way of being served is having the documents handed to you. Your ex does not necessarily have to do the serving, any individual can hand you the...
