Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, and welcome to Just Answer. Thank you for entrusting me with your legal issue. I will do my best to assist you. During the course of our interaction , I may need some additional information.
I assume that you are divorced or separated. If you and he are on the bill, I would sue him in CA small claims court (limit $7,500.00) since he is using the furniture. Advise Levitz of what you are doing and get them to agree in writing to give you at least 2 months to complete the suit against your husband.
You are dealing with this responsibly and from a legal/strategy standpoint.......smartly. The Lervitz proposal is high and I wholeheartedly agree that you should wait until it gets to collections without, of course, telling Levitz your plan. Just tell them that it is just impossible as a practical matter to settle on that basis...you just don't have the money.
Since CA is a community property state, this is really a joint obligation. I can't help but return to my prior suggestion that you get seek relief from your husband while you wait for the matter to proceed to collections. Good luck.
