- Q. If A loses a lawsuit, and owes B 1 million, and A dies before paying the full amount, who is responsible for the rest?
- A: The judgment would set forth who is responsible to pay it. It is only lists "A", then you would have to look to "A's" estate. You should check in the county court where A resided to see if a probate file was opened to file a claim, and do so right away. Also, check with a tax attorney to see if you get any tax relief for the unpaid debt. If you created judgment liens against A's property, you may get paid from there.
- Q. I paid a costume maker to create a fursuit. The maker has not created the costume in over two years. Where do I start?
- A: Did you have a written or oral agreement (contract)? Your contract is the important document in this transaction. If it was not written, you have two years to sue her from the date of breach. If it was written, you have 4. If you believe there was fraud involved, such as she never intended to do the work, you have 3 years to sue. The amount of money damages depends on whether you sue for fraud or contract, and how the failure to deliver the suit caused you to lose money. You should consult with a local attorney who can hear what happened and advise you on the best course of action as time is short.
- Q. There is a lien on my home. What can I do? Never received summons or judgment. Filed in 2008
- A: If you were not served, then you would file a motion to vacate the default judgment in the same case.
