    You need to see a lawyer and show him or her what you got. My suspicion is that what you received has no legal effect and can be ignored but doing so might result in a law suit See a lawyer.

    When a judgment is vacated it's like strting over at some point, that point is determined by the court and is part of the 218 order, new trial dates are set and as need other disclosure, motion, pre trial and such other needed dates are set in the 218 conference. read Supreme Court Rule 218 available on line and you will see the purpose for the conference

    You could sue him in small claims court, most county circuit court clerk's office provide forms and instructuions for doing this, I would do it were I you. You can also complain to the Consumer protection division of the Illinois Attorney general's office and you could post your opinions on yelp.com and and angieslist.com. HOWEVER you have immunity for your complaint to the attorney General. You dont have immunity for libel for what you send to yelp or angies list, be careful!

    I would surely hire an attorney. You will need to send a 201k letter, read supreme court rule201k first, then do a motion to compel all before the scheduled hearing date

    In the federal system The courts have what is known as a "Mack Bar" which a district court judge or even the court of appeals can issue to prevent a chronic litigator from filing anything unless it is pre approved. The federal courts are not reluctant under the right circumstances from imposing a "mack bar". In State court at least in Illinois the best we really have is "rule 137" which allows winners to go after losers AND their lawyers for harrassing law suits

    I think if you keep it in your name it leaves open a lot of problems. When you apply for insurance she has to be on the policy and be revealed as the principle driver, then your covered insurance wise. If she commits a crime with it and it's in your name, I don't think such an act would effect you. If your dseriously concerned over her committing a vcrime maybe you should re-evalute. Frankly I'd put it in her name if it's a gift and whatever happens happens. You won't be responsible for it.

    I think you need to answer the question as directed or write to the opponent who propounded them and ask him to agree to a shorter period, he will never agree to not wanting a list of non-marital property in my opinion. He is entitled to know what you maintain is non marital property, but you are entitled to list it as such. If he wont give a shorter period object to the interrogatory and furnish info for the period you married. Some people get into real trouble by trying to be clever and...

    No probably not. There is some latitude here and I suspect that there would be difficulty in even getting personal liability on the contract, particularly if the LLC performs. See a local lawyer
