I went to a concert with my friend and she agreed to pay me back for the ticket but a month later and several scheduled pay back times later, she still hasn't. I have the email with the tickets and prices, corresponding bank statements to my card,...
A small claims lawsuit in this case would likely be a hollow win. You may win the trial, but you will spend twice the money that you are owed in order to win. If you win, that means you get a judgement and a judgement is just a piece of paper. It is not a guarantee that you will be paid. As the old adage goes, you cannot get blood from a turnip. So, in a case like this, the best advice may be that you should think long and hard before spending good money after bad money. If you are angry at this friend, then simply stop being their friend instead of going through a costly and time-consuming Court proceeding. This is common sense advice instead of the typical legal advice.See question
Rent was not paid for this month and was given a five day notice I have two children one 14-month-old and one for your old candy Vic me in the winter with no place to go
There is likely at least a month or two and tell you would physically be removed from the apartment. If you do not leave after the 5-day notice expires, then the landlord will have to file a small claims lawsuit against you for eviction. If you answer that lawsuit by writing a letter to the clerk of court, then it will go to a trial. You will only have to leave after the landlord is granted an eviction in the trial and the Sheriff's Department physically removes you. I do not recommend that you let it get that far though. You can likely apply for rent assistance. If you call social services in the county where you live, they may be able to refer you to any programs that might assist you and your children.See question

There are several civil causes of action that you can bring regarding your interest in the home or payments contributed. You will definitely need an attorney though. Some potential claims are unjust enrichment, quantum meruit, conversion, and misrepresentation.See question
He evicted me after i told him i was reporting it.
Always put your safety first. Grab your most important personal belongings and find some place else to stay immediately. Report the break-in to the local authorities. Have authorities or at least a friend or two go back with you to get the rest of your belongings.See question

It is not likely that you have any legal claims against him. It sounds like you were a willing participant in the plan even if it didn't turn out like you had hoped. It will likely not be up to you to save some fun and find a new place to live if you no longer want to live in that apartment.See question
My wife and I have been living in her mother's home with her permission while she was in a nursing home. She was in the process of leaving all of her assets to my wife. I even hired a attorney who she spoke with over the phone where she agreed to ...
If your mother-in-law still owns the home, there is a good chance that she has equity in the home that your wife may partially or fully inherit. So, I would recommend that you find a probate attorney. That attorney will be able to help you find out what liens exist against the property and tell you what type of probate is necessary in order to satisfy the liens and transfer the remainder to your mother in-laws heirs at law or beneficiaries under her will.See question

Well you can contract for most anything, I would not sign this type of contract. I would find a different placement instead.See question
do you have case law or statutes that document how signing a document covers everything contained in the document including fine print? Someone wrote a paper that their company usually has a disclaimer on the bottom, but a different person signe...
This is a rather complicated question unfortunately. Typically, a person who signs the contract is presumed to have read and understand all of its terms. Certain things like disclaimers and waivers though are sometimes required to be conspicuous. In other words, they cannot just be in fine print, but should be bold, underlined. or somehow else marked to draw the reader's eye. The only way that an attorney could give you a valid opinion on the contract that you are speaking of is to see the contract and research the current case law on this issue. I wish you the best of luck.See question
I received a letter from my sister's attorney (she's the Personal Rep for my dad's estate - he died without a will) saying she intends to buy his car. She already took possession of the vehicle from his house, over a week ago.
The personal representative has the duty to store and keep safe all property of the estate. That does not mean that she has to keep it at your father's home though. If you do not want her to be able to purchase the vehicle for some reason such as you do not believe that she is paying enough, you should write a letter to the court and copy your sister's attorney right away. They were probably giving you notice and an opportunity to object to the sale by way of the letter that you received.See question
There are eight people on deed. One of them is letting someone live there with him. The other seven did not give permission or even know about it. Is this legal?
Technically, you all have the right to live there unless there is a contract such as an operating agreement or trust that mandates otherwise such as majority vote. Whether you each have the right to give others permission to live there is a tougher question. I think you could argue it either way in civil court.See question
