It's not clear how the first claim became a judgment. But whether your bank account has been garnished has nothing to do with whether you still owe your second paying customer hearing aids. It sounds like you should have talked to an attorney a while ago, but you should probably still talk to one now to see whether you can make this right.See question
I am currently on a month to month tenancy, my lease having expired some months ago. MY question is - may a landlord give me a 90 day notice of rent hike while I am still in the first year of month to month tenancy? In short, may the landlord give...
Yes, he can give the notice during the first year as long as the increase doesn't occur until after the end of the first year and 90 days after the notice is given. He does not need to wait until the year is over to give the notice. https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/lawsstatutes/2016orLaw0053.pdfSee question

There's a lot of details, but not exactly a question.
If you're being threatened with violence, contact law enforcement. If you receive a termination notice or eviction complaint filed with the court, contact an attorney. If he knocks on the door and you don't want to talk to him, don't answer it. Beyond that, you might want to take the specifics to your own attorney for a better understanding of your rights and what is likely to happen next.See question
If I say in a book. I'm Jonn Smith from the FBI and I need to speak to bill Jones. My publisher says that's liable. Even though the name is made up but is an event that happened to me personally.
Libel is generally a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation. Whether the statement you've referenced constitutes libel would be hard to guess without some understanding of context. But whether it is or isn't, your publisher likely controls what gets printed in books that they publish. You might decide that being published is more important than being correct.
If it's being published to the internet, the content provider might have some immunity to libel, but you might not and they still might chose not to print it.See question
No cause eviction and FED appeal, residential.
I agree with Ms. Selvig. Any appeal from the Oregon Supreme Court would go to the US Supreme Court and would be limited to a question of law arising under the United States Constitution. Landlord/tenant FED law is very, very, very unlikely to implicate a constitutional question and even less likely to involve a constitutional question that the US Supreme Court would exercise its discretion to hear. You might want to consult with your own attorney to review all the facts and circumstances surrounding your tenancy, but I'd expect that at least the eviction matter is now settled. Good luck,See question

There are fee waivers available. Negotiating with your creditors might or might not be possible, but it will be significantly harder if there is a judgment against you, and likely impossible once the funds have been garnished from your bank account.
You might also want to enquire about bankruptcy with a bankruptcy attorney if your debts are significant.See question

The rent is $675 a mo . i pau $104 with my sec.8 voucher. i hot a 90 day notice rent increasing to $950. thats a $275 increase. can they raise ot that much.?
Any changes in your rental payment likely need to go through your point of contact with your local HUD housing authority. (http://www.hajc.net/Page.asp?NavID=12)? You should contact them, make sure they have a copy of the notice, and see what their response is first. Landlords can only charge "Fair market rental rates" under the housing voucher program. If you, your landlord, and HUD cannot work this out, you should contact your own attorney.See question

It doesn't sound like you're on the deed to the property and it's unclear whether you've contributed anything to the purchase of the property beyond paint and a sprinkler system. Under these facts, nothing jumps out at me as giving you any basis to claim any equity in the home. It's possible that you have a claim for some of what you actually invested in improvements, but I'd be skeptical that without evidence of an affirmative agreement that the owner would reimburse you that those claims would succeed.
You should take all the details regarding your possession of the home and your agreements with your mother to your own attorney for a better analysis of any claims you might have.

If they're just not putting in their share of rent and utilities, you can bring a small claims action against them for the bills and any damage to personal property.
Assuming that you're all renting the property from another landlord, and the landlord isn't having any issues with the tenants, getting them out of the property will likely be a bit more difficult. It might be easier to work with the landlord to terminate your lease and look for another place to stay. Understandably that's probably not your first choice, but if you're a tenant, you can't evict another tenant.
If they're being violent or or threatening violence toward you, you might also be able to get a stalking order to keep them from the home. But without knowing more about the alleged abuses, it would be hard to speculate on the likelihood of you obtaining a restraining order. If you, your landlord, and your housemates cannot sort out these issues, you should contact your own attorney. Of course, if you're in physical danger, contact law enforcement. Good luck,See question
