Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
So she would have to pay an attorney if she cannot go to court herself? She has no money, and no job at this point. Staying with relatives. She could never afford to drive or fly back here.
Could she sign a paper of some sort allowing me to do this for her? Sort of like a power of attorney thing?
Thank you. It makes me so angry that a person cannot go to court without an attorney. I have run into this and had to forget about court because I could not afford an attorney. They charge about $400 an hour here, and even if I won a case, I would have spent more than I was trying to get back.
ONE OTHER THING: Is there a time limit on her her ability to get her things back? (That is, if he hasn't sold them.)
You have been very helpful; now I don't have to "wonder" about this.
Now I thoroughly understand! Thank you
