    You can definitely sue in Small Claims Court for the value of your deductible, and if you win, you will most probably be awarded your court costs (I say "most probably" because NOTHING is guaranteed 100% of the time). But you have a major issue which may make you want to just eat the $250, and that issue is your defendant. Anybody who doesn't have auto insurance will not have 2 cents to rub together and/or lives their life in such a socially irresponsible way that you will never collect your...

    You can never say that no one ever told you what I'm about to tell you. OK, are you ready? Because here it comes: DO NOT DO THIS. Not now, not ever. Either buy the house yourself, or wait until you're married and buy it as husband and wife. There is not enough space or time to tell you why your plan is a bad one, but it is a BAD one. I have seen many peoples' lives unnecessarily complicated by what you're proposing. You're happy now, but down the road, if the relationship goes south,...

    I won't comment on what your "proper legal response" should be. But your proper common sense response is to realized that you're about to get bushwacked and that you should run, don't walk, to hire a lawyer to represent you. Unless, of course, you believe that your mother's life was only worth $100. It's time to wise up. Hire a Ft. Myers area lawyer who handles these types of matters. Good luck!

    Probably not. Your efforts will be more richly rewarded if you dissociate yourself from this person forever, and from now on, only allow people in your life who treat you with respect. Good luck!

    You're not giving nearly enough necessary information to provide you with any meaningful answer, but I will give you a very VERY general response. First of all, I will presume that you're not in Small Claims Court, and that you're in County Court or Circuit Court. In these courts, you must first file the motion before you can call the Judge's Judicial Assistant (JA) to schedule a hearing. You can visit your courthouse law library and the librarian will direct you to some sample form motions....

    If you want to keep your home and restructure your mortgage debt, you should be in Chapter 13, not Chapter 7. You really need to hire a bankruptcy lawyer. This is not something to do "on the cheap." Good luck!

    You really should hire a foreclosure defense attorney to help you with this. So much is at stake for you, and unfortunately, the issues you present and an adequate response are far beyond the scope of this forum. Don't be penny-wise and pound-foolish. Hire a lawyer!!! Good luck.

    Your facts are confusing, but "reading between the lines," it would seem that you were served with a lawsuit, for whatever reason you didn't realize you were served or you didn't respond, and now the plaintiff is seeking a default judgment against you. Take your paperwork to a lawyer as soon as possible before they are successful in getting that default judgment against you. Good luck!

    Without asserting some type of privilege, which by definition would mean that you did not have to answer, the opposing attorney is correct.
