  • I own a mobile home in a mobile home park. Can a lien be put on the title of my home?

    My home is not on a permanent foundation and I pay lot rent to a mobile home park.

    Jon’s Answer

    Sure, a lien can be put on a mobile home. Are you asking whether a lien can be put on a mobile home involuntary? Again, the answer is yes in certain circumstances.

    A little more information would help.

    Jon’s Answer

    Yes, you likely have recourse. However, before anyone could advise you as to the strength of your case they would need to further understand the facts and review your agreements. It is likely that you have a case for breach of contract, breach of the duty of good fair and fair dealing and possibility a cause of action for tortious interference with business. Contact an attorney to discuss.

  • This pertains to GEORGIA, specifically. Question as to civil liability when a Court Clerk makes errors.

    Recently, during a continuing garnishment traverse hearing, it was discovered that, despite the Magistrate Court having issued a Fi Fa for a money judgment, there was no signed JUDGMENT in the court's case file. The plaintiff also did not actual...

    Jon’s Answer

    I have some questions when reading this post. Specifically, I am having a hard time discerning who you are (Plaintiff or Defendant).

    It is unlikely that the clerk is liable. If the clerk made a mistake (by issuing a Fi Fa when she should not), then this would normally be easily resolved by getting a signed judgment of record and then reissuing the Fi Fa. Then, the garnishment could be refiled. Thus, there would not be any substantial damages to the Plaintiff.

    From the Defendant's perspective, if the Plaintiff filed an illegal Fi Fa by deceiving the clerk into filing the garnishment, then the Defendant would have a cause of action.

    You should contact an attorney.

  • Is a 3 year balloon mortgage predatory lending? Original Bank shut down by FDIC, new bank wants to foreclose.

    Bought a house in the good market but, had a 2.8 year balloon mortgage. We were young and unaware that it was weird at the time. The housing market crashed and when our balloon came due we were upside down and had no choice but to refinance, and a...

    Jon’s Answer

    You should definitely contact a Georgia attorney about this. I am unaware of any consumer loan that balloons so quickly. I'm not sure off hand whether it is illegal, but it is very suspicious.

    Hire an attorney to review your initial closing documents and look into the legality of it. I imagine for about $1,000 an attorney could give you an opinion.

  • I paid a friend, a 25% comm. ea. month. to manage my money. He gave me false reports & lost all my money. Can I sue him?

    Jon’s Answer

    You should sue him and sue him quickly! You may be involved in a situation where he defrauded more than one person and there may be a limited amount of money to recovered. Find an Georgia attorney (assuming your friend is in Georgia) fast. Treat it like an emergency!

    Jon’s Answer

    This is a great question. I have a motion to set aside a judgment going on right now that deals with this exact issue. It can be won, but the burden is on you. That makes it difficult, but not impossible to win. Good luck to you.

  • I've hired a attorney 3 years ago on a work related lawsuit and hasn't got a court date yet. What can i do ? Thanks, Jeff

    I've called her, emailed and went to her office to get a update. But tells me the same thing { I'm trying to get a court date }

    Jon’s Answer

    You should get a second opinion from another attorney. Sometimes the court gets backed up. This is especially true in the metro counties. However, you do have options, including a petition for mandamus in certain circumstances.

    Many times the attorney is not being diligent enough.

    Good luck to you.

  • Why would a bank sue in federal court in stead of in county of resident where loan was made llc and personal

    have other llc (3) are they protected sole proprietor can i go bankrupt against just one llc in default

    Jon’s Answer

    Most attorneys prefer federal court over state court (the county court). This is because these attorneys believe that federal judges are better qualified, and the court is more efficient and predicable.

    You should contact an attorney about your situation.

  • What are the legal ramifications for your vehicle being in repo status in Michigan and you move it to Georgia?

    my vehicle was in the process of getting repo, but i got away from repo guy & eventually moved to Georgia to get my life back together. Can & will they come to Georgia to repo it?

    Jon’s Answer

    In Georgia, at a certain point hiding your vehicle becomes a crime. I imagine that it also a crime in Michigan. I'm not a criminal defense attorney so I don't know exactly how to advise you on this. I'm unsure whether Michigan law or Georgia law would apply. You might try re-posting under the criminal law heading.

    I would encourage you to surrender the vehicle soon. Yes, they can come to Georgia to repossess it. Whether they will or not, I do not know. They may file turnover proceedings in Michigan and then move for prosecution (criminally). If they do that (and I would), eventually that will make its way to Georgia and show up when you get pulled over for a broken head light.

    Contact a criminal defense attorney and turn over the vehicle as soon as possible.
