    My boyfriend, and baby daddy, has been going through a divorce for the past two years. I know I have no right to shared debt responsibility. Especially as the cards are in my name, but when he filled out his 13.3 he listed all of my credit cards ...

    Judy’s Answer

    This is basically a dupolicate question. You need to go back and read the responses you received previously. The volunteer attorneys here answer when and if they can. If you continue to have questions, you would be better off consulting with a lawyer rather than posting questions here. We have no way of predicting what your boyfriend will be responsible for.

  • Got a ticket for parking in an "Alley" that has a legal street name. Is it an alley or a street? Can I fight this ticket?

    I park my car behind my building next to a curb in the city of Chicago and there are no "no parking" signs posted. On the city map it is listed as E. Benton Pl. Between Lake St and Randolph just east of Wabash. The ticket says I parked in an al...

    Judy’s Answer

    If there are "No Parking" signs, what difference does it make whether the area is an alley or a street? If you wish to contest the ticket, take a picture of the street sign and bring it to court or the administrative hearing, which heaven is scheduled.

    Judy’s Answer

    Without the benfit of review of the entire contract, it is not possible to answer for certain. However, it does appear you might be responsible for the balance of the contract even if you terminate it. You really should consult with an attorney who is familiar with contracts for a complete discussion and to receive legal advice geared toward your particular situation.

  • What should I do or can do about my mobile home

    I bought a mobile home in Illinois in a park where my mother lives I currently reside with my mother and am on her lease. Well I bought a trailer and was denied a lease even though I have lived out here for over a year and the park manager is tryi...

    Judy’s Answer

    If you were denied a lease but the manager asks for rent, then you are apparently offered a month to month lease. The down side to that is that the owner can terminate your month to month lease and start eviction proceedings which would taker a bit of time. On the other hand, you can also terminate the month to month lease and move your mobile home to another park. You should disciuss your situation in person with a landlord/tenant attonrery to as mobile home contracts are not the same as renting an apartment or a hours.

    There is nothing you should do unless the vehicle was yours. Your friend should contact his insurance carrier. Since it seems the car might be yourself contact your carrier, even if you feel there was no fault on your part.

    Judy’s Answer

    As stated in your earlier question, you can sue anyone for anything, but the better question is whether you can win and if so, whether you can collect. From the facts presented, it does not appear you have a viable lawsuit unless you have some form of employment contract with your family.
