The prior owner of the business did not disclose to me about $50K in tax liabilities as well as other debt the company owed. Now the company is being sued along with me personally as the owner and I have no way to pay all of this. I want to close ...
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like you have too many options besides talking with attorney. Do you best to meet with a few attorneys and see if any of them will take a reduced retainer up front and maybe monthly payments. Regardless, you need to find an attorney because if you are being sued the worst thing you can do is nothing.See question
they have breached the contract and trying to turn it on me. Did not pay. Changed scope of work. Lied.
I don't see a question, but your best bet is to gather any agreements you have with the contractor and sit down with an attorney to discuss your options.See question
Is there anyway to stay at a place that you got a eviction notice at like if you don't have any money and you proved it could you stay there after the eviction notice? And if they did let you stay and have you another month is there anyway a pers...
No. You landlord is not obligated to allow you to stay in the property for free. There are programs for housing for individuals who can't afford rents. I would visit your local metropolitan housing authority and see if there is anything available and what the criteria are to enter into one of the housing programs.See question
I'm not sure what the contracted I signed said in it but I read that "Stern v. Taft, 361 N.E.2d 279 (Ct. App. 1976)" has something about the landlord having to find a new tenant. Thanks to whoever replies
A landlord has an obligation to mitigate damages. So if you leave your lease 6 months early the landlord has to take reasonable steps to bring in a new tenant. The amount of time the apartment is vacant is what you would be liable for.
The best way to reduce the amount you are liable for is to find a sublessee that is acceptable to the landlord to lease the apartment. The case you cited involved a potential sublessee that the tenant found and the landlord unreasonably refused to lease the apartment to the sublessee. This was a violation of the landlords duty to mitigate.See question
This man took check after check but eventually got them kicked out of the place because he had absolutely no idea what he was doing. The problem is they have little to no evidence (no written contract). Is there anything they can do about it to ge...
You uncle may have options. You do not need a written contract to pursue a claim. Also, since your Uncle wrote checks there is going to be evidence that he did pay this man a specific amount of money. The real challenge is going to be figuring out what the man was actually hired to do and did he perform the work in a workmanlike manner.
I would definitely discuss the matter with an attorney. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Best of Luck,

My neighbor thinks I should take down the tree since the trunk is on my property. I told him he could trim as many branches as he wants, or even cut down the whole tree at HIS expense. Who's financial burden is this?
You do not have cut down a health tree. You neighbor is free to trim the limbs that extend across the property line at his own expense. If he wants the entire tree down, I think it is very reasonable for you to tell him that you are willing to let him take the tree down, but he has to pay for it.See question

Yes, you should retain an attorney and take the necessary steps to receive child support from the father. If child support has been ordered from the Court already it may be as simple as notifying you local Child Support Enforcement Agency.See question
It's my first notice..how long am I aloud to stay until I have to leave for good...I have a 2 year old living with me..thank you
Each county in Ohio will have slightly different timing procedure for the eviction process. Generally, the entire process from start (posting the three-day notice) to finish (court ordering the eviction and receiving a "red tag" notice on your door) can takes approximately 5 weeks give or take if there are no delays.
If the eviction is for a valid reason, you should consider relocating before an official court action takes place or see if you can work something out with your landlord. An eviction on your record will have a negative impact on you ability to new place to reside.See question

If you are being discriminated against based on a protected class (age, gender, race, etc.) then taking action against your employer is appropriate. You need to sit down with an attorney and go into all of the facts to determine if there is a actionable claim. These consults are usually free and will be worth the time.See question
