What does it cost to file the action, assuming that it doesn't have to go all the way to trial?
File suit and then file a Lis Pendens which will put a lot of pressure on the seller as the house will be unsellable so long as the Lis Pendens is sitting on the house. Estimate to prepare a suit is about 1-2 hours, plus the filing fee and preparation of the lis pendens - 30 minutes or so and the filing fee. After that, costs depend on how the other side reacts. See if your contract has an alternative dispute resolution process like mediation or arbitration which will significantly cut costs and time. If not, at least make an offer to mediate. Better to mediate and resolve on your own then pay thousands to an attorney who can never guarantee you any results.See question
Or because the contract violation is against a USA law can I make a claim in USA court.? I am an exclusive distributor for the German company and they went behind my back and tried to sign and agreement with one of my rep agencies to represent them.
So you have a few issues here. Jurisdiction is where the court has the power to hear a case. choice of law is the law that the court with jurisdiction applies. parties can agree to personal jurisdiction in any court (so long as the court has subject matter jurisdiction) and parties can agree in a contract what law that court applies. However in Georgia they will apply GA law by default unless one party files a notice to rely on foreign law and if appropriate the Ga court can sit her and apply German law. Now whether the whole case should be heard in Georgia or somehwere else involves a review of the contract, the fact, and conflict of law provisions. If there is enough at stake here get an attorney now as whatever you do on your own, if wrong may not be reversible.See question

Right so if there is a foreclosure and there is a deficit and the bank pursues the deficiency then your neighbor will most likely have a judgment entered against him for the deficiency. Whether you want to blab on him is your personal business as I dont see how you benefit one way or the other, unless you just dont like the guySee question

In order to agree to be bound to the debt of another the personal guarnatee must satisfy the Statute of Frauds in that it must be in writing and identify the primary debtor. More importantly the guarantor did not sign here and certainly it would be hard pressed for a agent for a company to be able to bind an individual so I would say that this clause is not enforceable.See question

most of the time the police will not get involved in a matter like this which clearly looks like a civil dispute. certainly since you seem to indicate that other payments were made it does not appear that there was any sort of fraud or deceit involved. the seller should have a contract that allows them to reclaim the store in a civil proceeding based on a security interest in the business until all of the money is paid. as the others said, until there is a criminal issue see a litigation or contract or business attorney. at the end of the day you owe the money and need to work out a means to pay what you clearly owe.See question

if you signed each lease, you are liable. But in general, if there is a lease in effect neither party usually has the right to unilaterally just cancel it without some penalty or getting the other side to agree to the changes.See question

If you are in fact served get an attorney. You need to file an answer but make sure you make a special appearance and indicate that you are not waiving jurisdiction. Then your attorney needs to get in touch with the plaintiffs attorney and explain that you are not the right defendant and demand that they dismiss you. Of course you will have to show them some documents or other proof that you are not who they are looking for. If they do not let you out voluntarily, then you will need to file the appropriate motions and let the court decide. In no event should you ignore this howeverSee question
