I need to amend the documents such as FL-375, FL-374, etc. All forms pertaining to the joinder as I found out in the interim of them being sent to court and waiting on them to be sent back, I had the wrong claimant information on them and some inf...
You should modify all forms as required and insert the word "amended" in the caption of each form. They should then be filed before they are served and you should serve all forms, both the originals and the amended, on all required persons and entities.See question
I recently received a notice of Demurrer on an request I made to vacate a binding arbitration. I'm a layman, but I think there may be an error in the Demurrer filing. I've notice that in the California Rule of Court 3.1320(c) provides, "A dem...
I agree with my colleagues. The grounds to vacate a binding arbitration award are extremely narrow. It appears respondent believes that you failed to articulate a legal basis to set aside the award or that your petition is untimely. I strongly suggest you have your petition reviewed by an attorney. You run the risk of sanctions and possibly an increased attorney fee award against you if your petition is frivolous or subject to an award attorney fees to the prevailing party. Good luck.See question
How do I find a lawyer who is really knowledge in the wrongful foreclosures arena involving issues of MERS, the tender rule, dubious Assignment of Deeds, and Substitution of Trustee issues at the Appellate level of the LA Superior Court.. Many att...
You will need to use the "Find a Lawyer" function here on Avvo. The rules prohibit solicitation by either client, or lawyer. You should know that in most cases the term "wrongful foreclosure" is a misnomer. Few alleged cases have merit under current case law. If you're looking for a "real pro" be prepare to pay "real pro" hourly fees. If you're looking for a lawyer to work on contingency, it will be hard to find any takers, real pro or not.See question
I was able to get a default judgement. The defendant filed a motion to set aside the judgement. It was denied. They are now trying to file a second motion to set aside the judgement. Can they do that?
I agree with Mr. Chen. The issues are complex enough that you would be well served to consult and retain counsel to, at least, draft appropriate opposition. Good luck.See question
I am suing my daughter's school in her name for an injury she sustained there. Do I apply to be her guardian ad litem before or after I file the lawsuit?
You will need to retain an attorney. You cannot file suit on her behalf unless you are an attorney. Your attorney will probably apply on your behalf at the time the suit is filed.See question
The house was not in foreclosure prior to BK. Does the Bank have to go through the entire foreclosure process after the motion is granted? Or is the process different because I included the house in the BK.
I strongly suggest you consult local bankruptcy counsel. If you filed BK on your own without the assistance of an attorney, changes are you have made critical mistakes. The foreclosure process is the same irrespective of whether you file a BK. However unless your BK is dismissed, creditors (including lienholders) must seek relief from stay to continue or begin foreclosure, assuming you are not a serial filer. Good luck.See question
Almost a year ago, I was involved in a car accident along with my two sons. We all signed to be represented by the same lawyer. One of my sons and I went on to do physical therapy, but my second son declined. My second son did not want to pursue a...
You should contact your lawyer and ask for a full and complete accounting, explaining you confusion. You can contact the insurance company to determine any payouts. I would not jump to the conclusion you seem to have made. All settlements involve costs and attorney fees.See question

You only need one attorney. That’s a good thing. Multiple attorney mean substantially more expense. Use the "Find a Lawyer" function here on Avvo to locate a probate attorney in your area. You should be prepared to pay hourly fees. An attorney will need to review the terms of trust, including any amendments, any will, the current and past states of title, and the facts to advise you. Good luck.See question
