  • My employer wants to garnish my wages at 1/2 the rate they overpaid me. They started without my knowledge. What are my rights?

    They overpaid me over a period of 21 months and want to garnish my wages to get it back in 10 months. I don't have a problem paying them back, but I think it should come out at the same rate it was put in. Also, they already started garnishment ...

    Consult with a "wage and hour" employment lawyer. Ther are plenty of good firms that advertise for this kind of work here in Orlando. Know your rights before deciding whether this is worth fighting.

  • I had met a girl at my summer job in my hometown and we had casual intercourse for a few weeks and before I left town for colleg

    she informs me that I impregnated her and there is no chance it's anybodies else. I offered to pay for an abortion since we have only known each other for a few wks and I had already discussed with her from the beginning that would be my choice if...

    Robert’s Answer

    It is not your choice because you "warned her". Offering to pay for an abortion does not releive one of the obligation to pay child support- even if she didn't warn you. It is about the child; neither you nor her. Make sure she is truly pregnant, get DNA testing performed ASAP. If the baby is yours, man-up now, not after the baby is born.

  • My wife was fired from her employment in June. I believe this is a case of Defamation of character. I need a pro buno lawyer.

    Will share more info with a lawyer who can help

    Merely firing her is not defamation. If you really want advice from anyone here on Avvo, you will need to share the information with us.

  • My landlord has a court document saying that my husband and I are living at 824 her address , when in fact we live in 826 ,

    She is being shady and is with holding receipts for rent , elec. , & water payments ! She was in forclosure and this document is closing that and restructuring her loan ! Is she likely commiting fraud ???

    Robert’s Answer

    Do not pay rent or utilities by cash- ever- unless you receive a receipt. Better yet, don't ever pay in cash. Instead, pay by check, money order cashier's check, etc.

    Whether she is committing fraud is not your problem unless it directed towards you or affects your rights. You have not written about anything that is fraud in my opinion.

    Robert’s Answer

    Sorry for your loss.

    Your claims to the house and truck will fail without written proof they were gifts to your wife or you and your wife.

    Get away from the in-laws as fast as you can as they have no concern for you or your well-being.

    Robert’s Answer

    Hire a personal injury lawyer for your dog bite and your dog's medical bills. Ask your termination of lease issues. I am NOT a NJ lawyer, but it seems to me you have grounds to immediately terminate the lease. Hope these things were reported to the police and animal control...
