I am wondering whether a letter is a valid Notice to Quit. Nolo says it must include the address of the rental property, an "ultimatum that the landlord may pursue legal action", and "a statement specifying how the notice was given to the tenan...
I have litigated thousands of landlord-tenant cases. I have never seen a case won based on defective notice to quit. I know judges who consider notice valid wherever the defendant is served with the complaint.
What I am saying is this is not the right defense. You almost certainly have better defenses. Get a landlord/tenant lawyer. Good luck.See question
I've lived with my mom in her apartment for six years i get mail pay half the rent and have bills in my name. She moved and the landlord doesn't want to transfer the lease. They want me to vacate but i can't what are my rights in this situation!
I disagree with Stewart. While you may not have clearly delineated "squatters rights" you cannot be removed without due process. This means the landlord/property owner would have to sue you in court. If you're not on the lease the landlord would have to file an ejectment. If your represented by counsel he may be unable to get you out of the property for over a year. Speak with an attorney.See question

Prosecution refers to a criminal case. You cannot be criminally prosecuted for nonpayment of a debt. You can be sued in civil court for a money judgment. This judgment will be on your record and may be satisfied by seizing your assets, putting a lien on your bank account, garnishing your wages, or selling your property.See question
If you live in Philadelphia try Jenkins Law Library. Hopefully, it is a relatively simple matter. Representing yourself is usually devastating if; 1.) there is anything substantive that needs to be litigated before a judge; 2.) the matter at issue requires any sort of legal nuance.See question

You can file criminal charges for forgery. However, it is probably not worth it.
You can file a civil claim if you can show you suffered monetary damages because of the forgery. If you did then you should win the case. Sue him in small claims. You may get a feeling of vindication (and a settlement offer before trial).See question

File a petition for return of property. You will not get the gun back if you have a prior criminal record. If you don't have a record and are licensed to carry then you may get it back. I have helped individuals get firearms back following confiscation during an arrest.See question

It's not a given that he will be incarcerated. He needs to convince his back judge he is not a flight risk. This may be done by showing proof of employment, educational opportunities, familial support, etc. Speak with a Philadelphia criminal defense attorney immediately. Good luck.See question

The only way to avoid jail altogether is probably to win the case. The treatment options provided for DUI: Third Offense all involve some period of jail time. The only other exception to avoid jail would be inpatient drug and alcohol treatment. This would not be a program, but on the defendant's own volition. The DA and judge would have to agree to use his time at an inpatient facility in lieu of a mandatory prison sentence. He needs a good lawyer. The stakes are high. Good luck.See question
