QUESTIONS

  • I moved into a house 7 days ago and informed the landlord that the toilet was clogged, dryer didn’t work, shower broken, refrigerator broken and some other various things. I have lost hundreds of dollars worth of food. I have been buying dry ice. He said he is purchasing a new one today but won’t reimburse me for it. I paid a $1400 deposit and $1400 rent. What can I do. I have children living with me and no money to buy more food or coolers.
  • Can your wages been garnished without you being informed by the party that is garnishing your wages.
  • I am sending this for my mother. My dad left her his retirement to her but nothing else. She has about $25,000 in credit card debt (they bought a vehicle using a credit card with a 2% interest)and has an income of about $4,277 including retirement, veterans benefits and ss. Everything was fine until ill health made it impossible for her to live alone. She sold her mobile home, put the $$ in savings and moved into a senior apartment. She has recently moved into a more expensive assisted care living. Her income is enough to pay her rent but we still have to pay her $600 a month credit cards bills that my dad left her with. She only has about $1,100 in saving so either she files for bankrupcy or she just doesn't pay her credits cards anymore. She does use her credit cards so bad credit will not hurt her. I am sure that her current living location will not kick her out as long as she is paying her rent. What will happen if she doesn't pay her credit card bills anymore?

  • My husband and my daughter (his stepdaughter) were in an argument and my daughter slapped my husband in the face. My husband called the police and now wants to get a restraining order.
