    This is a duplicate question. As previously stated, It is very unlikely you will find a volunteer attorney to take your case and we are not permitted to solicit your business. You can locate many attorneys in your area by clicking on the Find a Lawyer link at the top of this page.

  • What are my options if a teacher shares the contents of a parent-teacher email to her classroom?

    The teacher in question had a classroom discussion with her students about an email exchange between herself and me. Sharing detailed information discussed about my daughter.

  • What happens if my ex who requested an extension to my motion for back child support and college doesn't show up with the money?

    he owes about 5k. My daughter just graduated and is attending college this fall. I live in Illinois and hope to secure some type of contribution for college since he wants to pay nothing. I do earn more than him however want to know what my cha...

    Judy’s Answer

    If your ex does not show up for the hearing, proceed without him. Present your evidence to the court. You will most likely secure an order for contribution to college. Will County courts (as probably most other courts in Illinois) are very busy during the summer months with cases involving contribution t\o college. You need to get this done and should not permit any further delay by your ex.

  • I paid a judgment. How do I get it to show paid on my credit report?

    A friend filed a small claims lawsuit for 3500.00 against me. I borrowed money when out of work & then had to file chapter 13 & did not include her debt in the chapter 13 filings figuring I would pay a little here & there. I was not able to pay it...

    Judy’s Answer

    If the judgment has been paid, secure a release and satisfaction of judgment that also shows the judgment has been vacated. Then send copies of the release to all the reporting agencies and request adjustment of your records. Make sure you keep copies of all documents and correspondence.

  • Can I sue my landlord (management company) for a $500 deductible for my stolen bicycle?

    The bike was locked, and stored inside a locked bike room within a "secure" garage. The door lock to the bike room was installed incorrectly, and allowed anyone to enter with a pen or screwdriver. It was a night - and the thief used a power grin...

    Judy’s Answer

    By your description of the thief's conduct, your landlord was not negligent. Furthermore, the disclaimer in your lease probably also protects the management company and landlord. Hopefully yo have renter's insurance but even if you do, you will be responsible for your deductible. Suing the management company will be an effort in futility and the costs and time involved will make it even more not worth it. Turn in your claim to your insurance carrier if the bike and lock are worth enough to do so. Otherwise, you are probably out of luck.

  • What is the statute of limitations on a vehicle down payment dispute?

    I purchased a vehicle on 03/03/2014, with an $8,000 downpayment. I made the check out to them and provided the check. The dealership claims they never received the funds, but I can provide proof of payment with a copy of a check. They just filed a...

    Judy’s Answer

    All lawyers licensed to practice in Illinois are listed at www.iardc.org. If you have proof of payment (copy of your cleared check) then that is your defense. The statute of limitations has not run so that defense is no good.

  • My Doctor's office called me and threatened to sue me!

    A couple weeks back I had a very poor experience at my doctor's office. The dr was rude and raised her voice to me, kept interrupting me and refused to answer my questions. I was so upset and frustrated I actually left crying. I posted my honest ...

    Judy’s Answer

    The doctor's office can sue but the better question is whether they can win which is not really likely. You have no obligation to take down your review of the office. Do not let them bully you. Just make sure you pay your bill and get this unpleasant matter behind you. Hire a lawyer if you are sued.

  • I bought property in North Carolina in 2007 for $166,000 today its worth $6000. The bank wont work with me Can I just walk away

    I still owe $100,000 on it its a 15 year mortgage, if I walk away from this, can they seize my assets ? my residence and my car ? I still owe $322,000 on my home but my car is paid off ? Thanks again, Mike

    Judy’s Answer

    Your question does not make sense. The numbers do no add up unless you are speaking about a different home than the NC property. If you wish to walk away from the property, you can do so. The lender is not interested in taking personal property. The lender wants your money Why not contact them and ask if they would accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure? Better yet, contact a NC real estate attorney to give you detailed advice and guidance and help you get out from under the property there.
