Wisconsin small claims case. An LLC sued me in small claims, I filed a Counterclaim against the LLC. I then filed a third party complaint suing the owner of the LLC. The attorney for the LLC filed a notice of retainer and answered the Counterclaim. January 6th was the day the return date on the Summons which informed the Owner of the LLC either file an answer prior to that date or appear on that date on the third party complaint. No notice of retainer as to the Owner has been filed. The Owner nor any attorney appeared in Court on January 6th, the return date on the Summons. I did appear. Is the Owner of the LLC in default?

A girl who was in my band, who I released and canceled a gig, has threatened me numerous times with lawsuits. I have not been in contact with her for months. A friend just told me last night that she was going to sue me for, I'm guessing, slandering her name. These same friends of ours told me she wanted a restraining order on me too. ??

The court has two issues infront of it. One is the deed

For Law EducatorThe court has two issues infront of it. One is the deed being changed to a quit claim deed. The other over finances.my ex charged me with contempt over the finances (I could have filed against him with contempt but have not) if I pay him what he wants he will owe me the same amount back (and will not pay most of it) Does it make sense to pay him now and remove any contempt?

I filed a civil lawsuit. The defendants filed a motion to

I filed a civil lawsuit. The defendants filed a motion to dismiss. I filed a motion for an extension to respond to their motion to dismiss. The time is coming up for me to turn in my response but I need more time to research what they've written. Can I file another motion to extend my time to respond to their motion to dismiss?JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Also when I filed the motion for extension, the judge requested that I also submit a settlement demand. I've done that, but The date for that hearing is after the date for me to respond to their motion to dismiss. I simply need more time. I don't believe the judge will grant them a dismissal, but I don't know if I can ask for more time to respond. I was hoping that the settlement demand was resolved first and then the motion to dismiss would be useless.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes I filed a complaint. Is that what you mean?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time. Thank you.

I am being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates for a debt

I am being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates for a debt that they bought from Capital One. I submitted an answer with counterclaims and then was summoned into court for a hearing to dismiss counterclaims which I agreed to dismiss. They had a bill of sale stating they had purchased my debt signed by a notary. I went to court again for the original summons for a case management conference. I asked for a time to seek legal assistance and another case management conference has been scheduled for Feb 8th. I have now received discovery requests asking for statements, copy of payments made, and more from the credit card account. They are also requesting my social security number, all my employment information. What can I do and how can I fight this? Should I try and settle this out of court? Do they really have legal claim to this debt? Also, less than six years since I have made payments on this account to a collection agency.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Oh yes, sorry. MassachusettsJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I haven't given them any information, however, I did sign a statement to drop counterclaims in court.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can scan and send pdf or jpg of the documents I have received in request from them or anything else you request.

My ex husband and I singed in court an agreement where he

My ex husband and I singed in court an agreement where he agreed to no visitatuons with the kids. We stood before the judge and the judge singed it. He has been abusive to me and my 2 older kids but to protect them from taking the stand, I decided to let go of all assets bc my ex decided to forgo all visitations with the children. Now, he wants to go back to court for visitations. Can he do that? He's never been in there life and has been abusive and hadn't seen them in years. Even their pyschologist doesn't recommend it but my fear is can he go back and fight for visitations. If he can, under what condition?

Las Vegas nv county My landlord did not return my deposit of

Las Vegas nvClark countyMy landlord did not return my deposit of $2550. He failed to give me an accounting within 30 days. He claims that he spent $10k fixing up the house after we moved out, but most of this was optional upgrades due to wear and tear, with only minor damages. We left the house spotless and carpets professionally cleaned. We have communicated via email after the 30 day period has ended. My questions about small claims court-1- do I automatically win due to the 30 day accounting failure?2- do I have to worry about a countersuit?3- I made an official demand letter and gave him 10 days to pay or else would file small claims, to which he responded, but does that count? The court website says it must be certified mail4- I have been communicating only with the property manager, not the owner. Can I serve the suit to him if since the owner lives out of the country?5- should I sue for double my deposit and let the judge decide or should I just ask for my deposit plus court costs?
