    You should call legal aid. There are groups that assist prisoners with claims, including workers compensation claims and section 1983 claims. You may also want to call the Fresno County Bar Association for a referral through the lawyer referral program.

  4. CA personal injury tort law bit into piece of glass prepackaged box of raisins what are my rights

    Start with a call to your doctor or dentist. You need to know what is wrong with you. Even if there is liability (the manufacturer is responsible) there is no case without damages. To get damages, you need to know what is wrong with you. So, be sure to be seen to make sure there is nothing wrong with you and that you have not swallowed the glass. If there are no injuries, or minor injuries, just send a demand letter to the company that made the raisins. You can find a sample demand letter at...

  5. Debt should be bar by sol but move out of state

    Answered about 6 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The short answer is that the SOL can be tolled while you are out of state. There are no cases that I know of specifically applying it to a credit card debt. But, there are plenty of cases that state it applies to other cases. I can't imagine why it wouldn't apply to a credit card debt though. It does not violate the 14th Amendment. As for whether it would be better to be sued in Florida or California, I do not know. I don't know enough about Florida law. You can and should argue the...

    The only way you could pay the original amount only is to negotiate with the lender and get the lender to agree to accept the original amount. This would probably require you to pay the original amount in full. It usually does not make sense to take out a loan to pay student loans since the interest is usually less and may be tax deductible. But, most lenders will not agree to this type of plan anyway.

  7. Debtor's rights in CA, creditor obtained judgment and will begin garnishing wages

    Answered about 6 years ago.

    First, are you sure it is you? Were you aware of this judgment or a lawsuit before now? If it is not you, you need to clear that up. If it is you, then you need to determine if the notice was properly served. They needed to give you notice and give notice to your employer. If you did not receive notice properly, then you may be able to attack it on that grounds. If it is proper and it is you, you may want to negotiate with the judgment creditor to avoid having your wages garnished.

    The statute of limitations has probably long since expired. You should send a validation letter to the collection agency. Once you do, they cannot continue efforts to collect the debt until they provide you validation. My guess is that there is no validation that they will be able to provide you. You can find a sample validation letter at www.californiadebtblog.com. Also, you should dispute the debt with the credit reporting agencies.

    You are responsible for making the payments to the lender. If the lender sues you, you can file a lawsuit (called a cross-complaint) against the borrower. However, you are still responsible for paying the debt. You could also file a lawsuit against the borrower for the payments you have made so far. However, it sounds like the borrower has no money, in which case you could receive a judgment against him but not be able to collect it. You may wish to hire an investigator to find the borrower and...

    It may be. You need to report your income to them as soon as possible. You may have to make restitution (pay them back). However, it depends on how much you have been making and the amount you have been collecting.
