    My information suggests you may already be part of a class. Not all "class" members are listed, it is usually only 4-5 parties that are "representative" of the class that suffered the same injury. My information is to search Google for "Ohio Class Action Foreclosure" and that may point you in the right direction. If you have opted into a class action already, you won't be able to join another class. If you opt out of a class action you can pursue it on your own. You would probably get...

  2. If two people have a joint checking account, can one person press charges on the other for stealing their money?

    I would think not because they were clearly authorized to access the account and the funds in it, it is a joint account and with out more, there would be no restriction if one of the joint account holders took all the money out of the account. It is a joint account meaning it is owned by two people.

    So you evidently signed the title of your newly acquired car over to your cousin and why? It is a somewhat unbelievable story. How far removed from your cousin? 1st, 2nd third or far removed. The is something missing from your explanation. . . the car goes into her name and how is that going to impact failing E-check? If it is a common car, a catalytic converter should not be expensive and the fix is simple. Often you can disconnect the battery for 5-6 minutes and clear the computer....

    You need to consult with your bankruptcy attorney. I would have informed you to stay in the home until forcibly evicted with a contingent plan to move. The banks can barely figure out who owns property because is has been bundled with other mortgages and sold over and over. You may want to consider consulting a plaintiff's attorney concerning the denial of the reaffirmation. Good luck.

    Case will not likely be dismissed, it's a divorce, so unless they want to patch it up, it will get worked out eventually. Motion to Show Cause why he/she has not done this or that. Subpoena financial records. Get the ball rolling, get the magistrate or court involved in resolving this. If you or they don't have a divorce lawyer get one and get it done. No one is going to make them stay married. Ask for attorney fees for the refusal to engage in discovery and for the cost of filing the...

    You can sue anyone you want, but I would also tell you to avoid any law suit like the plague. Work with your attorney, because you should have one and try take the "higher path" no matter how hard it is. Why would you want to fan the flames. What business does the school have to search (public or private), why is your daughter involved. What could a ten year old do with a credit cards. They might have to report this whole mess to social services. Who called the police - this is a "jacked-...

    It appears you may have committed a crime by filing a false police report and may have also committed perjury. I would inform the prosecutor that you will not testify. If you were married you would have spousal immunity from testifying against your husband, but I don't think that will work. You have now been subpoenaed. You really got yourself into a jam. If you don't show up they have no witness if you ignore the subpoena you can be picked up and brought to the court to testify and you...

    What kind of dog? Regardless, she gave you the dog, she did not sell it to you. It was a gift. If she truly gave it to you she can do nothing. Did she ever offer to take the dog back? And, if was a gift, a gift is a gift . . . it was your dog. I would keep the $250, because I see no compelling reason. There is no written contract, and I do not know your relationship with the breeder, so if the dog was hit by a car, or had to be euthanized due to medical, or you turned the dog into the...
