My car was struck in a parking lot three years ago. The damage was over 750. The other party and I settled without insurance, amicably. I did not file an SR 1, didn't think I had to do so, since the other party did not want to file an insurance claim. Is there a statute of limitations for not filing an S R 1 form with the California DMV. I would like to sell my car and am concerned. The damage just involved a shallow dent and scratches made by a truck to wide to park in a parking space. I was not even in my car at the time.

Auto insurance damage settlement question: A few weeks ago

Auto insurance damage settlement question: A few weeks ago the tire on my recreational vehicle blew (travel trailer) causing considerable damage to the body. We are covered for both collision and comprehensive, and the company determined this was a "no fault" damage situation, covered by our comprehensive, minus a deductible. Because the company had no adjusters in the area, they told us to take the rig to an RV body repair shop, have them take photos and provide an estimate. We did so.The estimate for damage repair exceeded what the insurance company determined was fair market value. They then determined they wanted one of their own adjusters to evaluate the damage. Since we were traveling, we had to wait until we found a town where an adjuster was available. The adjuster they sent was not at all familiar with RVs, but did shoot pictures, take information.The adjuster has concluded the company will "total" the RV, and offers what appears to be a reasonable settlement. The rig was inspected by both a body shop and by the company's own adjuster. We provided a copy of the RV's registration. The adjuster says we can "keep" the RV if we wish (we do want it) and they will simply cut us a check and mail it to whatever address we provide.However, when we purchased the RV, the seller did not immediately have the title available for us. When we received the title, we noted that it was a "branded" title (State of Arizona) as "salvage/restored." Apparently the RV had been totaled in a prior accident and repaired.Question: Are we under legal obligation to advise the insurance company about the title brand? The company is not asking us for any paperwork, simply asking us for an address to send the check to. We assume our endorsement on the check will free the insurance company of any further obligation, and guarantee our acceptance of the deal.

Recently, my son's confidentiality was violated by s former

Recently, my son's confidentiality was violated by his former pastor in Americus, Georgia by the pastor putting his entire circumstance on Facebook. My son lost his job, got a divorce, and had to move from Americus, Georgia. We are trying to get him legal representation because of the following that was copied from Facebook that was entered by the pastor:Bud Womack Sometimes silence is golden, but not this time so I feel the deep need to clear many things up based on your post here. No Jeremy, you didn't just "do it the absolute wrong way this time" you've been doing it the absolute wrong way for over 6 months and you've been told by me and others many times to stop it. That's why you're divorced today, lost your job with the police Dept and actions were taken at church to force you to leave her alone and protect a child. Some may feel this is a racial issue but nothing could be further from the truth because it's a moral issue plain and simple. What you've done and are doing may not be illegal in Georgia but it's still very immoral for a 32 year old married man to have a romantic relationship, and probably a physical relationship, with a 17 year old child. You have simply taken advantage of a child plain and simple. You've ask for people to forgive you and without a doubt we are all willing to do that. However, forgiveness can't happen until there's repentance and repentance means you turn away from what you've done that warranted asking for the forgiveness. As your pastor I tried to do nothing but love and protect you and your family as well as Caitlyn and her family. It was your actions that continued after many meetings and discussions that required my actions as a pastor to protect everyone and the church as a whole including the two of you. When your actions got worse rather than better I had no choice but to remove you from continuing to pursue a child on the church property. Plain and simple we love you and want the best for all involved but you nor Caitlyn are victims in this situation but rather the cause of it. Please know that loving someone has nothing to do with condoning their wrong choices and actions. You can only move beyond this by letting it go and walking away. Life Point Church and myself continue to pray for you all. And I ad... Do the right thing.*************As a result and being the father, I posted the following on Facebook:JerroldCynthia Hinton Jeremy, I am just now reading this post and in particular the post written by your former pastor. As a licensed and ordained African-American pastor that has been in the ministry since 1977, I am appalled that your confidentiality has been so violated by someone claiming to be one called by God. While I do not condone the relationship with Caitlin Elswick, I am very much crushed by what you have had to endure. My bible let's me know that ALL have sin and come short the Glory of God. Even your former pastor. I will not attempt to point out any of your shortcomings on social media, because I read one day thta I shouldn't try to remove the speck out of your eye and neglect the beam in my own eye. It is people like your former pastor that causes situations like Baton Rouge, LA and Minnesota. While you MUST forgive your former pastor for what he has done, I am advising you to retain an attorney out of Atlanta and let them start litigation. I will print this post myself and run it by the Department of Jusice here in Washingnton, DC. Action must be taken to prevent aforementioned events by pointing out the very things and people that cause them. Unfortunately, there are many preaching from pulpits in your area on Sundays and wear their hooded sheets during the week. Yes son, his post has racial overtones even though he states it's not racial,. He has tried to destory you. I can't believe he called the police and wanted you arrested. Be encouraged young black man! No pastor on earth has a heaven or a hell to put you in. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over your life and no weapon formed against you shall prosper. I pray that God will reverse what has been done to you in Jesus name. Finally, you may want to give a printed copy of his post to the local TV stations to assist in preventing others from being violated by what should be a place to heal and continuously point people to salvation.

I recently bought a 1991 townhouse and the disclosure form

I recently bought a 1991 townhouse and the disclosure form said roof 2008 and the real estate listing had "newer roof" published. The home inspector estimated the roof to be older (12 -15 years), but when we questioned the age, the realtor called the seller who said yes, that is was put on in 2008. He seemed to accept this. Then, just two weeks after closing, several shingles came off of the roof.After I had them repaired, the roofing specialist said the roof was in very poor condition. I had another professional roofer come out and he said I would need a new roof within 1-2 years as the shingles looked inferior and it was not done in professional manner. I contacted my realtor about this issue and that I felt the roof was both misrepresented by the real estate agency and the seller. I contacted the township to find that no permit was issued for a new roof. My realtor contacted the seller who said her son had hired a roofer friend to do the job and he oversaw it. He provided a 2008 cancelled check that his mother wrote out to him, an email from him to his mother laying out the cost, and a signed statement from a neighbor that saw the new roof go on in 2008. My issue is not so much that it did or did not go on in 2008, but the condition of the roof. If I had known I would have to put on a new roof on a house that was represented as having a "newer roof" I would not have paid close to the asking price. What is my recourse in this matter? One last thing, my realtor and the seller have been friends for years. Does this play into this situation? Thank you for your advice!

My client (I am their financial advisor and we are trying to

My client (I am their financial advisor and we are trying to raise seed capital for their company) is making false accusation and terminating our contract in bad faith to avoid their fee obligations, claiming non-performance and misrepresentation in written materials. Neither claim is valid, and in the latter case, under our contract, its not possible. No capital has been raised yet, and that is not a condition to our agreement, however my consulting firm is at-risk - only paid if funds are received (regardless of source). They are threatening to go to mediation if I dont agree.I believe that with threats of further action, everyone loses - and that my best response is to cite bad faith and breach of contract and possible libel, and to threaten to take action (libel) against them, if they dont agree to pay fees, and to sign an indemnification, such that the issue doesnt escalate further.Do you agree? If not, what do you advise? Also, is it possible that I could be sued for such a "threat", for interference or obstruction? Thank you

My husband and I need to go our seperate ways. Our house is

My husband and I need to go our seperate ways. Our house is under contract with 45 days until settlement. We agree on division ofroperty and he will sign whatever he needs to indicate so. Is it easier for us to file for divorce after the house settlement...or before...as I am getting the house proceeds as my inheritance monies back. He takes with him just his vehicle and personal effects, but I will require no maintenance. If we file now, with a statement of financial agreemen that I get the house, as it was drafted before we put it on the market, does he need to sign a "quit xlaim" as well? Would it be easier to wait until after the house is settled?
