Recent Abandonment questions

I have a question about what can I do. I was renting a dryer

I have a question about what can I do. I was renting a dryer from a furniture rental company. A month and a half ago I told them to come pick it up because I had purchased one of my own. They said they would pick it up the following Monday. It has now been nearly 6 weeks with me calling them twice a week to see when they are coming and them always telling me they will be there that week. What can I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: KentuckyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I guess I just basically want to know can I sell it without fear of being sued from them

My son is being told his past employer is suing him for his

My son is being told his past employer is suing him for his entire employment (6-months) because he sent personal emails (less than 100) from his personal email account (i.e. fantasy football, new job inquires, movie reviews) and surfed the web while at work. The emails were only sent when there was downtime and he had nothing to do. The employer admitted he was the best employee she ever had. He always did his work and was always on time. This only occurred after after work was completed.Can they do this?

What is the process for getting rid of personal belongings

What is the process for getting rid of personal belongings left after a legal UD eviction in the state of California? We have obtained writ of possession and the Sheriff's office has delivered the notice of eviction. We assume, knowing the sot of tenant she was, she'll walk out leaving a house full of refuse and junk - an old refrigerator, washer and a satellite dish. When can we dispose of this trah so we can begin repairs and clean up? Are we require to store any of it and, if so, for how long and under what conditions under Caliornia State Law?

My son's car was stolen, it was found by the police the next day but they neglected to contact him. It was towed and now the tow company want $500 in towing fees. My son missed that day of work filing a police report and works over an hour away 7-5 daily. the towing place closes at 4:30. They are charging him $50 per day. Is this fair? Can these towing companies do this legally?

Same asshole ex.He seems to think that because he survived my demurrer, he has already won. Honestly I don't understand how he survived my demurrer. Do you? (I just went with no duty to ship; Judge said there was a cause of action represented.)Also, do I have to do a Memorandum of Points or whatever it is called? It just all seems so straight forward to me. Thanks again.

Hi. My wife and I are British citizens but are US residents with Permanent Resident Cards valid until 2019.We own property in Florida, file annual tax returns, and are subscribed to 'Obamacare'.We original took out the residency when we had a multinational business and were setting up and running a subsidiary office in Florida. Our head office was in the UK.We are both now retired and sold the business. One of our sons is also a US resident and lives and works permanently in Florida.We now tend to travel significantly, and only visit the USA for a few weeks for a couple of times per year.We are currently in Europe and have been out of the USA since April. We are likely to have been out of the USA for more than 6 months.We expect to return to the US in the fall for a few weeks, before returning to Europe for Christmas.Should we relinquish our Residency? What is the process for doing that? What are the consequences if we do? We wish to still visit the USA on a regular basis but for periods less than 3 months.
