Great this makes me feel so much better. I was served and it is a jury trial so because she is 82 do you think that will weigh on the jury? I also have a legal document from years ago which shows that she will clearly lie to defend her son. So since she wrote the check 2 years ago exactly to this day is it not under a statue of limitations? Also is this something I would need to hire an attorney for or is it something I could defend on my own? Would this be an expensive case?
Great so even a jury trial they won't feel sorry for an 82 year old woman, typically especially since I can give evidence of her character and I did get primary support from her son which is limited visitation for her son and her and that is also why she is trying to get me. My ex is saying that jury's would go for her because of her age. Just give me this last bit of hope if you can and you are my top expert and will rate you as such!
Thanks for putting me a little bit at ease! I will follow your advice on the law school!
Hey I was very excited about your answers. Call the bar they said $2500 so started calling attorney's. Just talked to one and he is saying that she has a case because there is a check she wrote to carmax however waited two years to do anything and it is her burden to prove however they feel she has a good case although she is lying. I don't even know how to defend myself. I have recently sold the car, had insurance on it all these years. Except for once when all the cars were on one insurance plan and homeowner's, I have payed license plates, etc. Now I am scared and feel that I have no hope.
There is not a law school close to Wichita that I know of. This attorney just seemed nasty and the law suit says verbal he kept saying it is oral and only worried about the statutes. I don't even know what evidence that I can produce other than insurance, sold the car so don't have title, will I have to show title in court?
Okay I am going to have faith in you then. Thank you so very much. The $12,000 won't be perceived as more of a loan than a gift because of the amount? Again she did it because she owed money, I had helped her out with taxes, etc, she was just being nice. Had let her son stay at my house. The other attorney says I might not be able to bring up the document saying she gets confused and covered for her son.
thank you so very much you are my hero and I will call another attorney.
Ah, and you are turning into my ray of hope!
Okay will do, so what is your real name, can I ask that? My name is Debbie! If you legal guys connect on linked in we can connect. Debra Brock
Fair enough, you are terrific!
Wanted to let you know that my ex-Mother in law withdrew the lawsuit without prejudice. That is all the letter said. Does that mean that up until next April she would be able to open up the same thing again and sue me?
She is wanting her son and I to get back together and if that does not happen I could see her trying. However her backing out like this would work in my favor if she did try right?
Hey remember me. So I think I told you the ex-mother in law dismissed without prejudice and I was nervous about her doing this again. But if this happenned in 4/2010 isn't only for 3 years so she can't right?
Oh because I thought April 2013 she would not even be able to file because of the 3 year. So she can still file? The day she wrote the check was April, 1010?
Terrific and you are still my hero. So if she did I guess it would be thrown out due to the statues of limitations beign 3 years correct?
Hey you! You helped me in the past and I gave you a nice commission. Wanted to ask you something else. This same ex-husband has now posted filth on the internet. Rip-off Report. I understand it is not a highly recommended source but he has basically said I have slept with everyone in my company, meth habit. Just horindous things. My friends have fought back and put anonymous excerpts to defend my honor. Now he posts he will sue. Isn’t this one that has a right to free speech and wouldn’t it be expensive for him to be able to do that? I would really appreciate your opinion on this.
Great! Rip-off report is a rag and probably none of my professsional engineer's would view it. So wouldn't it be hard to prove he hurt my reputation? Although when you google my name it pops up. Very hurtful. I responded back with court documents showing he lies, fraud food stamp charges, etc. All true to his character, so he is threatening to sue me. However he has not worked in 2 years. He I am sure used fake e-mails, whereas I did my real. He says he did not do it but one says his name and Husband and has social, birthdate, etc. I do not have any enemies in this world so it has to be him. He would have no grounds at all to sue, would he as he has not had income in 2 years and could not keep a job before that, so his reputation was not slandered and mine was based on facts. So if I use this template, does that need to come from a lawyer, or can I just send?
Problem is he has no income and owns nothing. Everything is in his Mother's name so is it even worth it to me? He has not paid child support for 4 mths. Would love that template.
I like the letter. So hiring an attorney for this would it be expensive? And he might have to pay attorney fees?
He can't sue me right, because my stuff was true, my story and what he has done to me? Is that right? Plus he has not worked in 2 years.
You are so wonderful. Thank you so much for your help. I am referring you to all my friends!
