Q. I plan on filing for a bk w/in the next 6 mo. If my dad gifted me a car he bought for 1600 how does that affect the bk?
A: The vehicle is now an asset of yours. The value is fair market value not what you think its worth or what you paid or what he paid. Under Fla. Stat. 222.25(1) you may exempt $1000 in value of a motor vehicle. You may also use any other exemptions (known as stacking) allowed to you by law. An attorney (HIGHLY recommended) will help you through the whole process so there are no surprises to you and everything is planned out properly. Hope this helps.
Q. I have foreclosure case that i want to take to trial i got a ore tenus non jury granted but i do want a jury
A: I second that. No right to a jury trial in mortgage foreclosure cases in virtually all instances. You would need to speak to a mortgage foreclosure defense attorney for specifics, but its almost always the case.
Q. What are my rights staying at an extended stay who only rents weekly or monthly and won't fix anything I ask?
A: Why dont you simply move to another unit or another extended stay facility if you dont have a contract?
Q. I became a dog foster and was attacked by him. He bit me 3 times. Are they liable for all expenses and damages to me?
A: This will depend on a number of factors, including who you were fostering dogs for. Most importantly you need to review what agreement you had to foster as it almost certainly had a liability waiver built in somewhere.
Q. In florida small claims court, can the plaintiff call the defendant's supeoned witnesses first?
A: Sure. I dont see why thin would be an issue. Its up to the judge, ultimately but Ive personally done it as a practicing litigation attorney.
Q. I am entering into an owner finance agreement for land. When is it prudent to do a deed search.
A: As the buyer, before making any commitment whatsoever. Even then, making any commitments contingent upon marketable title. You should hire an attorney. You could really damage yourself by trying to save money by NOT having an attorney assist you in this.
Q. How long do I have to return company weapon after leaving the company
A: Look to your employment or equipment agreement. It should have the timeline in there. If not, you should return any property that is not yours as soon as possible to avoid potential problems.
Q. I believe the opposing party in a small claims court plans to use a document that may be fraudulant. What can I do?
A: In small claims there isnt necessarily a discovery deadline to produce. You will though have the opportunity to cross examine the party attempting to authenticate and introduce the document.
Q. Can I fight a ticket for following too closely to a state trooper? No prior tickets or accidents.
A: You have the right to contest the ticket. Follow the directions on the citation for doing so. You may wish to reach out to a "ticket clinic" (a law firm that does traffic ticket defense) for help. Many people believe its worth the cost, but that's up to you.
