    You have posted this in the Florida section. I would recommend re-posting in Ohio so an attorney there can advise you. Good luck.

  • Can a lien be placed on my car if I don't own the car or have the tittle?

    A collection agency stated they placed a lien on my car through a judgement (which I was not aware of) they called my parents stating they will reposses the car ... Can they take place a lien on a car that's still owned by the bank ?

    Zonald’s Answer

    The short answer is no. You should probably consult a attorney that practices in debt relief. The collection agency's statements to you may be against the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

    Zonald’s Answer

    You don't qualify for unemployment because you were terminated.

    In Florida, employees are presumed to be "at will." At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it's not illegal. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract. In Florida, it is very difficult to overcome the at-will presumption.

    In Florida, you can be fired for anything as long as it's not one of the following reasons. Employers are not allowed to terminate or discriminate against employees for age, race, sex , religion, national origin, disability or pregnancy.

    It's also illegal for an employer to terminate an employee for refusing to break a law, in retaliation for filing a discrimination or safety claim, for taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, without following its own stated procedure or policy, or for reasons not contained in the employment contract, if one exists.

    Hope this answers your question.

    You can pay the money due with your local clerk of court to get your car back. To do this, get a copy of the bill from the shop and file a bond for the amount of the final repair bill plus storage charges, if any, with the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the county where the shop is located.

    The Clerk will issue a certificate directing the shop to release your vehicle. A law enforcement officer will help deliver the certificate to the shop, if necessary. The repair shop has 60 days to file a lawsuit to recover the bond as payment for the repair. If the shop does not sue within 60 days, the Clerk will return the bond money to you. The shop, however, can still file suit after release of the bond money.

    Then you can take the car to another shop for diagnosis and file a claim against the original shop if they did not repair the vehicle correctly.

    Good luck!

    An eviction is not going to take 3 months. You would most likely file an enactment action if they are not paying rent. Go to your local court house to get the forms needed to start the process.

  • What's the article from the labor legistation ? My friend got fired from his job and he had a doctor excuse ?

    He got fired from his job and he had a doctor excuse . I'm trying to find that article where is says that you can't terminat a person with doctor excuse

    Zonald’s Answer

    I am not aware of this article. The only possible claim in Florida would be under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Otherwise, employment is at-will and the employer can fire you for just about any reason.

    Zonald’s Answer

    If the vehicle is paid off, then you should have the title. If it's an electronic title, you can get one mailed to you from the Florida DMV website, or go to your local DMV and have them print you a title. I don't see how anything would be a repossession if the vehicle is paid off.

    If there is a balance on the vehicle, then yes, if you give it back, that is a repossession. You can't really sell it outright until you have the title in hand.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Zonald’s Answer

    If she did not register the vehicle and pay the taxes as required, then just go to the DMV and have them print a new title. Then you have the power to report the vehicle as stolen. Just call her and let her know you will report as stolen if not returned to you today and I bet she will bring the car back to you.

    Good luck!
