    The debt collector's attorney will probably go through the steps to get a court order for him to appear for the deposition and if he does not show up, they will issue a warrant for his arrest. He should consult a bankruptcy attorney to determine if he is a candidate for bankruptcy.

    You can probably find someone that will work for the fee offered. I suspect that you will have difficulty finding a board certified attorney that will agree to that unless your injury case has huge value.

    You should have been served with a copy of the petition for writ of garnishment. You would have had the opportunity to let the court know if you qualify for an exemption. You need to contact an attorney asap, or go to the courthouse and review the file. if you contact an attorney, have the case number available for them to review the court docket online.

    Consult a tax professional about this. You may not have to pay the taxes if it was your primary residence.

    If the you file suit against the person and they file for bankruptcy protection they may not have to answer the lawsuit. They can file a suggestion of bankruptcy in your lawsuit which will most likely stop the lawsuit until the bankruptcy is over or when you obtain relief from the bankruptcy stay. You have to ask the bankruptcy court for relief from stay before you can continue with the lawsuit.

    Contact a landlord-tenant attorney immediately to address your rights under the lease. The attorney will probably have to review the lease. Florida has strict liability for dog bites. Posting Bad Dog signs helps and the landlord will probably have some liability but you will probably get sued along with the landlord in any dog bite claim.

    More information is needed. Various notices can start with the language you provided. If a lender foreclosed on the apartment community the lender may get an order from the court for rent to be paid to them. If a condo, the condo association could be demanding rent for unpaid condo dues. The apartment complex could be in bankruptcy . . . We need more information to properly answer your question.

    If the other party is not represented by an attorney you will need authorization of the court before you can serve discovery requests. There are separate small claims rules that apply to a small claims action. I have included a link to the rules. Look at rule 7.020 to determine if you can serve discovery or if you need the court's permission. 7.020 (b) Discovery. Any party represented by an attorney is subject to discovery pursuant to Florida Rules of Civil Procedure 1.280–1.380 directed...

    You should move into the second home before there are any judgments against you. The equity in the second home may be protected if the home is made your homestead and that requires the home to be your primary residence. Talk to your bankruptcy attorney to determine if your personal liability on the first home was discharged as I think it should be. If your liability was discharged you do not have to worry about liability for any balance owed on the mortgage and your second home should be...
