I recently relocated to Tucson and after being in my

I recently relocated to Tucson and after being in my apartment about 2 weeks, long story short, met a young man who was about to become homeless, with no car, no family on and on. He had some SAD STORIES. I took him in for 4 months, during which I also provided 2,ooo toward down-pmt on a car so he could Uber. I gave-he took. He paid back half of the loan but was always a struggle for him. He caused lots of damage to my apartment and damaged some of my things. I finally lost it and yelled at him. When I came home later he was gone and I believe moved into his young girlfriends' apartment. I want to file a small claim court suit against him for the 1k and damages but am afraid he will avoid receiving it, signing for it. What is the smartest/easiest way to make sure he receives his copy of it?? And what are my chances of receiving regular payments from a person who is receiving SSDI, plus ubering a little bit?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer.

I am a 62 yo widow also on SSDIJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The car could be much newer, not sure

I am a 62 yo retired female living in my deceased mothers

I am a 62 yo retired female living in my deceased mothers estate in louisiana.i accrued about 45000 in credit card debt after my mom experienced a four year illness during which she was bedridden and needed much care..i was her only relative and caretaker...after her passing i lost two thirds of my income and since 1015 i have had only my state retirement pension as income..In may of 201t i fell into arrears on the credit cards and had to stop payment...thr largest debt is 17000 and all others r 5000 or under and most all have been transferred to collection agencies..i am afraid of lawsuits so want to know to things..Am I correct that my state retirement cannot be used to pay them..and the second involves moms house..as i said i am her only kin and she died intestate...my attorney left the hone under the estate of ***** ***** Abbott, my mother's name...we never did a succession as i was concerned id fall into financial issues and thought not doing g a succession made sense...however I have read in louisiana that is someone dies intestate the property is mibe under intestate succession laws... so would i have to do a succession to make this hone mi e legally or is it mine by default..i ask as i am fearful these creditors can get access to it even tho it is not in my name..i was told it is not my asset and I cannot sell it if i wanted bc it is not in my name..but these intestate succession concepts r making me apprehensive that rhese collection agencies can go after the house without the property bei g I. my name..k am so distressed as i am in bad health with advanced arthritis and ha e lives in this house for years...it is paid for..which is nice when u r older and disabled..so the homestead exemption here is 75000 and I understand that amount is off limits to the creditors..it might be prudent for me to get an appraisal as the home is extremely dilapidated a d many think it would t even appraise at 75000 or if so not by much..also it is an I flood ravaged neighborhood which has driven prices down..so is the house protected from creditors bc it is under the name of my late mother or is it vulnerable bc i the debtor ( mom owed no debts) have the house bc of the intestate laws? My attorney suggested once I do a succession and I have been told no judgment can force me to do a succession putting the it in my name and making it vulnerable to collections..am I ok as far as the house or if not is there anything I can do before any suits r filed to insure the hone isn't seized by them in any judgmentJA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer.

My husband is retired and I am still working. He wants me to

My husband is retired and I am still working. He wants me to sign off on his esop account so that he can transfer it to an IRA. I understand that by law I am currently the beneficiary but if I sign off on it, this will no longer be the case. I am leary of signing anything because he tried to get me to sign off on his pension last year-told me that I had to sign. I did not sign off on the pension. I know that if I sign off on the esop his beneficiaries will become his children. By law he is the beneficiary of my 403b. However, the amount of money he has is far greater than mine. I need some advice. He just showed me the form and says that it has to be signed by the first. His youngest daughter does not have a FT job but wants to buy a nice house this summer and I do not know if this has something to do with the urgency to complete the transaction. Thank you!! I live in Virginia.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: VirginiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not that I know of.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I do not know what else they may need to know. Thanks.

My mother, who passed away on March 23 2017, had a car

my mother, who passed away on March 23 2017, had a car rental lease from Hyundai in Vero Beach Florida. The car was turned in when she was put in the hospital with terminal cancer. She died with in a week. The car was in excellent condition and had 4000 miles on it. It was a 2016 Elantra and she signed a four year lease. We received a early termination fee of 7800.00 dollars from hyundai finance. We feel she was taken advantage of when she leased the car 14 months ago at the age of 88. Do we have any recourse in this matter? Their finance people say they will sue the estate. Her estate is worth approximately 70,000 dollars.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Florida. Car was a 2016 Hyundai elantra.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
