Q: 

Landlord holding deposit, says I trashed the apartment

A:  "If so, what can I claim? ... If I get a lawyer for the case, can I claim court costs and attorney fees?" You can sue for twice the deposit, but even if your small claims court allows for attorneys (most don't), you'd have to look to the lease agreement as to whether you could go after attorneys' fees. I would first write a letter advising that I was in receipt of his letter dated X, received Y, in response to my phone call on Z (and that law required him to send the charges within 30 days after the end of my lease); and that I disputed his deductions, then detailing each item(mentioning the renovations in general too). I would demand my...

Q: 

What's going to happen if my dad's insurance finds out I can drive when he claims an accident?

A:  you can not drive with provisional lice. unless you have an adult with you carry a valid driving lic. , the insurance will deny that claim 100% . if it is reported to d.m.v. they will deny issue you a lic until you are 21 years . this what happened here in ca. good luck If the other driver was at fault, and either admits it or was sited by the police as being at fault, you don''t even need to notify your insurance company at all. You, (well, your dad) can just deal directly with the other driver''s insurance company. If the other company does not cover all of the repairs to your car for whatever reason, you can just pay to have them fixed out of your own (or your dad''s) pocket. The worst that your insurance company can do is deny (not pay) any

Q: 

What can I do??

A:  Yes, you can garnish wages if you get a jugdment against her. "Is there anyway that they can drag it out and not pay?" Conceivably? Sure, I suppose so. (And for all you know her wages are already being garnished; if that's so, then you're out of luck until that garnishment is done. I don't know too many creditors that will take less than the max allowed by law (25% of disposable wages, in most cases). "My question is what is the best way to try to get my money?" "Best, easiest, fastest" way naturally would be for her to agree to pay you and do so. Unless she agrees to cough up, the only possible way is to sue. "My Husband works for GM so they have a legal service that we don't have to pay...

Q: 

What type of suit can I bring against "The Other Woman" in 15 yr affair?

A:  The "Other Woman" will get what she has coming to her eventually. Things just tend to work out that way. Why are you not more concerned with the injuries that the man who swore to love and cherish you has brought on? She made no promises to honor you, but he did. This is all a result of his choices. Hang in there. I have my fingers crossed for you. Thanks for your kind response! I am very upset about my husband and have been seeing a therapist, and he has also been seeing the therapist as well. There is hardly anything right now that I don''t second guess since I was so trusting and believing for 26 years this coming July. But when you have made a mental choice to love someone on a daily basis for all those years and you know deep in your heart that there is something good in...

Q: 

What can I do about my ssi?

A:  I am sorry for your difficulties. As difficult as it may be, you need to get legal aid involved with your situation. At the very least you need to go down to the Social Security office and get all these issues straightened out. Keep fighting for yourself and your child. Are there any social service organizations that can help you out? Check your yellow pages under Social and Human Services for Individuals and Families or Social Service and Welfare Organizations, and start making some calls to elicit local help. The counselors at these agencies may be able to guide you to other sources of financial aid that you are unaware of. Also, make sure you apply for other help which you may qualify for such as WIC through your...

Q: 

Can I dispute a medical bill if my doctor's staff lied to a disability ins. company?

A:  No, this is not a valid reason to dispute a bill. Maybe if you paid the bill, the doctor would be willing to send the information you need. Have you spoken to the doctor directly? TNUtammy, You need an attorney to handle this for you. You are attempting to deal with CIGNA''s disability department and it is my opinion that it is a section of hell run by the devil himself. Got any letters from SL? I''ve never reviewed a disability claim problem when dear old SL wasn''t involved. You aren''t getting anywhere with your physician. An attorney can cut through the crap and get this straightened out for you. To ecmst12: Yes, I have talked to my doctor and her superiors many many times and they still refuse to correct their mistakes. They stopped...

Q: 

What Can I Do?

A:  They do not have to work with you, they have a right to demand payment in full immediately. Apparently someone went to court and got a judgment against you and you ignored that as well. If it is a judgment as a result of the accident, they can pursue any legal means possible in your state to collect the money, I am not sure what all they can do in your state, but these could include liens on personal property, bank account seizure, wage garnishment and other collection means. If the car was in your name, then yes, they can hold you responsible, especially when you let him drive it without being insured. The collection agency cannot, themselves, suspend your license, but they can notify the courts and the driver''s license agency in your state the debt has not been...

Q: 

Can I change my daughters last name to mine?

A:  IF he is the father, you cannot prevent him from the real life fact he is the father and must be on the BC. What usually happenes is that ( if he didn't sign the affidavit of paternity to be placed on the BC now) , that you will file a paternity action ( or he will) and the court will oredr a DNA to be certain he is the father, then when the results come back, the court willtake the test into evidence, and order the BC amended to indicate the father. Then you will have to obtain a child support order, a custody order, and a parenting plan ( visitation). If you do not do these things, he might. If he files first for custody, he may get joint custody, which is the normal custody decision in todays courts, as they are not biased for the mother and against the father.

Q: 

How do I respond, and can I counter-sue?

A:  "First, does their case have merit since it was filed with an incorrect amount to begin with" * No one can answer if their case has ''merit'' as we haven''t seen the evidence or facts. If you are asking is their case ''faulty'' due to claiming an incorrect amount, no. That is for the defense (YOU) to show when you go to court and it can go towards their credibility or lack of. "Based on the information presented above, is it possible the suit could be dismissed at pretrial, or is the judge likely to send it to trial with a modified amount?" * As noted above, it is more likely that it will go forward based on THEIR claimed amount.... and up to you to present your evidence of an incorrect amount. "Is there some manner...
