QUESTIONS

  • My stepson, 17 has been convicted in juvenile court of theft. He damaged property and the owners are filing for 6K restitution. His mom has full custody and she works. His dad is disabled and a am unemployed...we cannot afford restitution. We also cannot afford an attorney. Can the 17 year old be ordered to work off the restitution? What are our options when we can't pay?
  • I was told I had to pay a "holding deposit" of $600 & sign a lease for a property that I needed to rent but was unable to do a walk thru in because the existing tenants were still occupying the property. I was told I could cancel at any time prior to my move in date 8/5/13; I cancelled on 7/20/13 & am being told I will not get any of my deposit back. What can I do?
  • I need at least advice if not an attorney to represent me. I am being charged with a midemeanor and charged with writing a bad check. Please direct me to free help as I have no money.
  • I am listed as an occupant in my boyfriends apartment. There was an incident that i allegedly damaged a car parked outside the apartment complex gates. The incident was reported 2 weeks ago and there is no physical evidence that proves i did it ans no arrest was made after being questioned by police. I was delivered with a notice to vacate the apartment or my boyfriend would be evicted. Is this legal? Can they do that? We're current and paid up on our rent as well.

  • The house we are leasing has a converted garage that we were told is used as an office for the LL and he occasionally stays overnight when necessary. Although there is no mention of sharing the property in the lease, there is a small statement that the LL will pay $60 toward monthly rent for electricity. Isnt he liable for a share of all the utilities?Also, much if his behavior feels intrusive. What rights do we have re: Quiet Enjoyment?

  • I hired into a company through a temp agency, this company hires only the white people into their company and puts all of the blacks in a separate room, and they also take jobs from black to give to whites and omit the deficult parts to make easy for them, but would not do this for the blacks, what is my recourse.
