Legal Answers
326 Questions Answered

Q. Can I use a different newspaper than the one I wrote in under the Order to Show Cause?
A: If you want to use the less expensive newspaper to do the publication for you, then you will have to either amend or submit a new petition which has the correct publication, because you have to file your petition under penalty of perjury. To avoid any possible issues, you want your petition to state accurately and truthfully the facts which support the petition. That includes the identity of the newspaper which publishes, because you are asking in the petition for the court to approve your requested newspaper as one of general publication in your area. So be consistent with the truth.
Q. How to file a cival rights case into supreme court?
A: Insufficient information.
Q. If my neighbor throw a ball into my house many times, what can I do and what is my rights?
A: Keep the ball. If the neighbor causes damage with the ball, then you can hold the neighbor responsible for whatever damage she caused. If the situation escalates, you can always call the police and make a complaint against your neighbor. You could even go to court and file a claim of harassment against your neighbor for disturbing your peace and quiet.
Q. Okay so I’m getting “sued” for not paying somebody the payments we agreed on for his car , but there’s nothing in
A: Even if there is nothing in writing between the seller of the car and you, you still have entered into an implied contract to purchase the car and make the payments which you promised. Even if the service of the complaint was defective, you will still need to file a responsive pleading within the time specified in the summons. It is unlikely that you will get the complaint dismissed because of the defective service. Even if you are able to quash the service of the summons and complaint, the court will get the plaintiff another opportunity to get you properly served. In most cases it is not even worth while fighting the service, because obviously you have gotten the summons and complaint and are aware of it. I suggest you do what you can to negotiate a reasonable settlement.
Q. What are the laws on squatters rights?
A: The property owner will have to serve you legal papers to begin the eviction process. If you are served with a summons and complaint, the summons will tell you how many days you have to file a responsive pleading. The process begins with service upon you by the property owner of a notice to vacate the promises, which will itself have a certain time within which you will be required to act. If you continue to stay at the property afterwards, then the property owner will have to file a complaint in court and then you will be served with the summons and complaint for unlawful detainer. After you are served with the summons and complaint, you will have at least five days within which to file your responsive pleading, called an answer, in your own defense. The whole process can take six months or more depending on the circumstances. You should have sufficient time to find another place to live if you start to search for other premises diligently. You should have begun doing this by now.
Q. Late to appear on court by 1 day
A: Try logging onto the courts website and looking up your citation. There will be several options for you to choose from. Do not delay.
Q. i have a revocable trust and will which i would like to amend. can i include the codicil for the will in the trust
A: You really should be discussing this with an attorney having experience in estate planning matters.
Q. Is a giving woman (when with a man) a menu without prices considered public accommodation discrimination?
A: Were you in California when this happened? If not, I am not licensed in New York.
Q. The insurance company is offering to settle my case but I’m not sure if their offer is reasonable. How do I know?
A: Add up all your out-of-pocket medical expenses, such as Dr. bills, pharmacy bills, and other expenses related to treating your physical injuries; add up the lost income you suffered resulting from the loss of time from work; calculate the value of the pain and suffering you have experienced; then add the sum of each of those components together and you will get a rough estimate of the value of your case. If the offer does not equal what you’re sum total is, then it is probably inadequate. Most insurance companies will lowball you on their offers. My experience is that you’ll never get a reasonable first offer from any insurance company. You will have to negotiate, and it is usually best to do so with the representation of an experienced attorney.
