If I purchased a female puppy ($8500 total / $3500 first

If I purchased a female puppy for breeding ($8500 total / $3500 first installment) would I be required to pay the whole amount if I change my mind and have the female spayed? There is no liquidated damage clause. I already paid $3500 and the breeder sells the same puppies that are pets only at $2500.00. So I have already paid $1000 more for an intact puppy. All puppies are sold intact by the breeder but pet puppies are to be spayed after 5 months. I'm supposed to pay second installment after one year after x-rays are done and then final installment at two years. It has been almost 6 months.

I red a contractor who owns s own one person business. We

I hired a contractor who owns his own one person business. We signed a contract with my sister as a witness. It doesn't state a start date or finish date but those were expressed verbally. In two weeks he has done one hours worth of work and is very unprofessional. I decided I wanted to find someone else to do the job but he is now refusing to give me the deposit back (4500). I told him I would pay for the time he did work. No supplies were bought or anything. Can he legally keep the money?

My sister filed 7 bankruptcy a few months ago. I live in my

My sister filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy a few months ago. I live in my father's old home. He left me a life estate allowing me to live in the house for life, and upon my death or decision to move, it would revert to my sister's and my brother's heirs.Last week I received a letter from a lawyer who is trying to separate her interest in the house and is threatening to put it up for sale, in order to collect on her debts. Can they legally do this and do we have options other than coming up with the money they are looking for. I am on a very fixed income and could very well end up losing my home if this happens.

I am in Ontario, Ohio 44906 My husband and I signed a

I am in Ontario, Ohio 44906My husband and I signed a contract on July 1 to rent a house from Don Moss for $725.00 a month. We did not realize that there was another more suitable house for less money just a few doors down. After looking at the second house we both realized our mistake. I called Mr. Moss on July 3 and asked to be released from the contract. He said he needed to think about it.Mr. Moss called me the morning of July 5 (today). He said he would only release us if I would release payment of the $1650.00 check I had written on the 1st. I said I would have to think about it. I had also previously given him a check for $725.00 for the security which has already been cashed.Can we get out of this contract?In the process of typing this letter Mr. Moss called again. He offered to give me back the check for $1650 if I would give him another $725.00 in cash.Mr. Moss now has $725.00 in a check he has already cashed. We never moved in. This was at his request to finish the living room floor.What can we do?

I live in Indiana and I am 25. I tend to do things

I live in Indiana and I am 25. I tend to do things impulsively so I went into a cosmetic intervention provider's office (Ideal Image) in Indianapolis and made a downpayment of 1125 dollars for a simple non-invasive cosmetic treatment I was supposed to do 2 weeks from yesterday. I read more on the subject since yesterday and decided I don't want to do the procedure to my body for several personal reasons. I did sign a contract yesterday. Am I still ellegible for a full refund?Thank you

My Ex-Husband is filing bankruptcy, most likely chapter 7.

Hello,My Ex-Husband is filing bankruptcy, most likely chapter 7. The only financial settlement I received from the divorce was that he would pay off my truck, which he has not done although, to my knowledge, he has made payments so far. How can I protect myself from my vehicle being liquidated or repossessed during his bankruptcy?
