The girl payed for february 2nd until april 2nd in advance. so 2 months. but decided to move out in 8 of march because wanted to live with her boyfriend. Now she asks for the rent money back she did no stay in april but she did not give any notic...
It sounds like the girl was a sub-tenant. She was your tenant on a month to month tenancy. Florida Law provides that the either party can terminate a month to month tenancy by giving at least fifteen days notice before the end of the monthly rental period. Since she did not give you advance notice and was still living there for a part of March, I believe that you are entitled to keep the two months rent that she paid to you for February and March. If she files a lawsuit you should seek an attorney as soon as possible or consult an attorney for advice so that you can represent yourself. The lawsuit would probably be in small claims court where you may not need an attorney.See question
I received a 90 day notice only three weeks ago, but came home to a 24 hour final eviction notice today. Is this legal?
If you want additional time you should either contact the plaintiff's attorney or file an emergency motion to stay the writ of possession. The basis for you motion is that you received the letter stating that you had 90 days and then received the 24 hour notice just three weeks later. Ask the court to grant you a week or two to move. It is a long shot but the judge may feel the letter misled you and you should be given additional time. It is easier if the plaintiff's attorney agrees to give you some additional time to move out.See question

My name is Stephen. I'm 19 years old. I've been in the Army Reserves since May 27th, 2014. I hate being in the Reserves. I also want to move out of state due to financial reasons and I want to go to this college that offered me a full ride. Howeve...
I am not aware of any prohibition against changing units because of a move to another location. Although this was many years ago, I joined the Army Reserve and within months of being assigned to a unit I moved to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida. I was assigned to a new unit without a problem.
If you take the scholarship and move, you may find that you are assigned to a unit based on the Army Reserve's needs and you may not have much option regarding MOS etc. Try the new unit with an open mind and maybe the different environment will change your view regarding your enlistment.See question
Plaintiff made motion for writ-of-possession today, 3/26/2015. Will there be a hearing date set based on this action? How much time between motion for the writ and the granting of the writ by the court?
Quite often a judgment granting possession is entered without a hearing and then the clerk of court issues the writ of possession. It is quite possible that the next notice you receive is the actual delivery of the writ of possession giving you 24 hours to move out.See question

In general, how will a lawyer know which witnesses they should get a deposition from? Are they told ahead of time who the potential witnesses will be?
The decision to depose witnesses is based on a number of facts and the lawyer's litigation strategy. It also depends on whether the client can afford to pay for many depositions and extensive discovery.See question
