    At this point only your attorney can request a continuance because you are still represented. Without knowing your case history or the judge I don't think anyone can guess whether a continuance request would be granted.

    Ronald’s Answer

    It takes a court judgment against you and subsequent action by the sheriff to execute on the judgment. Regardless of what the lease states, the landlord must sue and win to get you out. If you don't like a lease term, however, try to negotiate a more reasonable term.

  • Can I sue H&R Block for neglecting my case?

    Ronald’s Answer

    You should first read your contract with H&R or pay an attorney to read it and advise you. There's a good chance it contains an arbitration provision that preclude filing in court. In addition, realize that litigation is very expensive and the realistic recovery if a plaintiff wins is often far less than the thousands it can cost to litigate.

    The document was in relation to a consolidation loan to pay off some debt. No collateral was needed and the document states that I will close all of the accounts being paid off. However, the lack of credit would severely affect my credit score s...

    Ronald’s Answer

    Without seeing the contract you presumably signed under oath before a notary, it's tough to opine as to the ramifications. You should have a local attorney review the contract. For example, it might have a liquidated damages provision.

    Ronald’s Answer

    If you are willing to pay an attorney to file a garnishment and know where the defendant banks it should be easy to find a collection attorney to be of service. You might also find someone to collect on a contingency basis. Best wishes.
