    I am sorry to hear about your information loss. You will not likely have success in a lawsuit with Apple over this known and publicized feature of the product.

  • Can I call the police to help me get my belongings back?

    I have property at my ex-girlfriend's house that she's not trying to give back. I need my clothes and meds because I have none.

    Peter’s Answer

    If you have just been denied access due to a restraining order, the police may accompany you to remove your things. Otherwise you may just have to replace the items if she will not give them to you.

    What can you do to do get back into your home if you were evicted with a void or voidable judgment in California?

    Peter’s Answer

    It would be important to know more specifically what you mean by void or voidable judgement. Typically you can not get back into a house once you are evicted. If there is property that was there that you did not retrieve, you could coordinate with the landlord to see if you could obtain it.

    I owe less than 4K to Capital One Bank for the second time now this lawyer subpoena my documents. What should i say or not speak at all going there.? What documents should i bring or not bring to them?

    Peter’s Answer

    Your best bet is to have counsel representing you. You have the right not to be harassed or asked improper questions or proper questions in the wrong way. You likely will not recognize which questions are improper, however. An attorney can object to such questions on your behalf.

    A witness is under oath for the testimony that they provide in a particular hearing. When they leave the courtroom, they are no longer under oath and if questioned again would have to be placed under oath again.

  • Can I request for opposing counsel to pay my missed wages for attending a deposition and missing work a third time? Can i not go

    TRO and Child custody

    Peter’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear about having to miss so much work. It can be frustrating. Depositions are a part of civil family actions and there is no provision to compensate a party for missing work to attend them. If you feel that the depositions are intended to harass or are frivolous, you could make a motion to the court. However, it is not uncommon to have multiple depositions for a civil case.

    Oregon law. Husband and wife both own their home. Both have they're names and signatures on all documents. Husband takes out loans against the home. without consent or knowledge. A divorce is forth coming and there are 2 minors in the house.

    Peter’s Answer

    Any loan taken out in the husband's name alone should be the husband's financial obligation. There is also a possibility that the husband forged the wife's signature. A forged signature would not obligate the wife.
