  • Can I sue for failure to return down payment money?

    Allan’s Answer

    In the USA, you can sue unless your contract includes an arbitration agreement. The question is whether it's worth the time and cost. Do you have the evidence to win? Does the injury justify the effort? The filing fee for a trial by jury will be around $550 and probably take about 18 months. This is a decision up to you.

  • Can I sue SiriusXM if one of their employees stole my debit card and used it?

    Allan’s Answer

    In the USA, you are free to sue. Can you win and is it worth the time and effort? You must have admissible evidence. You must suffer damages. If you prevail, you must pursue collection efforts. It's costly and time-consuming. The filing fee in state court for a jury trial will be about $550. You must decide if the potential benefit justifies the time and expense.

  • Can an insurance claim be filed with State Farm if no police record was filed?

    Allan’s Answer

    Your idea to pay their deductible won't work. That insurance company will come after you or your insurance company for reimbursement. It would be best to report to your insurance company. Your son would most likely be found liable. With that amount of damage, he should also be concerned about leaving the scene of an accident. It's not up to the other driver to "refuse" calling the police. That's not their option. Simply, make the call. Now, let your insurance company deal with it. That's why you pay premiums.

  • My boyfriend has a blue warrant on him. Can it be lifted without going back to texas?

    Your boyfriend needs to consult a lawyer licensed in Texas. If he's violated his parole, he'll likely have to serve the remainder of his sentence.

  • Why did my case change from DC to CC?

    Allan’s Answer

    As stated by my colleague, felonies go to circuit court. I'm sure your lawyer can explain this to you. Felonies mean you face serious jail time. If you don't have your own lawyer, then you probably need to hire someone as soon as possible.

  • Can I sue my ex for not giving me my furniture can I sue the woman that set the house on fire about my furniture ?

    Allan’s Answer

    In the USA, you can sue almost anyone. The important questions are whether you can win and can you collect a money judgment. The first question is based on evidence. The second question is based on the solvency of the defendants. Lawsuits are expensive and time-consuming. The filing fee for a trial by jury against 2 defendants will be around $600. You must decide if the potential benefit justified the time and expense.

  • Can I sue my ex landlord ?

    Allan’s Answer

    You wouldn't have a viable lawsuit unless the landlord breaches the terms of your lease. Payments by tenants aren't investments. Tenant rights and obligation are basically defined in the written lease.

  • The mother of my child won’t give me our daughter ssn or birth certificate, how can I get them?

    Allan’s Answer

    Are you married to the mother? If not, you are not presumed to be the father. You would have to prove paternity through the court, which would then estabish your rights and obligations. This will include child support.

  • What can I do?

    Allan’s Answer

    Retain your receipt and do not speak of the incident with anyone other than your own attorney. Walmart is notorious for aggressive prosecution, especially at self-checkout. It is almost impossible to escape detection. I suspect they are reviewing whether there was a price/sticker change. A warrant could be issued within the next year. If you are arrested, do not make any statements without the advice of your own attorney.
