We live in island ny and gave a carpenter a deposit for a

hi we live in long island ny and gave a carpenter a deposit for a wood deck to be built on our house. my husband had a heated argument with the carpenter over the phone and he no longer wants to work with us. he told us the day after the argument that he would come by and pick up his wood in which he had already dropped off since he no longer will be doing the job. My husband said that is fine--he can come by and pick up the wood and also that he will be home at 5:30pm so that he can return and receive our deposit back. He came and picked the wood up off our property but he will not respond/call us to make arrangements to drop off our money. We need to know what we can do about this? we would really like to call him and tell him if he doesn't return our calls soon, that we will get the police involved. But can we? what can we do???

My step son lives in PA and now has a guardian that was appointed without My husbands knowledge. My husband and I live in NY. We were not aware of the guardianship of my step son. (his Mom is in jail). We just thought he was living with family. Now, there is a balance of $14k for my step son's middle and high school tuition. My question is who is ultimately responsible for the tuition. Is it the new guardian or my husband (the boys dad).

Thank you for your time and help. I really appreciate you

HelloThank you for your time and help. I really appreciate you providing this service to me.My question.... is two-fold....Here is some background....I am divorced (final order signed 11/19/15) out of a 25 year marriage. My husband destroyed my life as I knew it. He lied when he filed his paperwork for a mental hygiene warrant on me. Stating he had tried to do all he could to get this taken care of prior to filing. (Had he done so, he would have known I was not psychotic. I even had multiple office notes from my psychiatrist that were highlighted "Severe depression with no psychotic tendencies" from every visit. He put me in a mental institution (I wouldn't have been had my interviewer not been multitasking and wrote some of my answers incorrectly and convincing the judge, with some difficulty, that I was a danger to myself and others). It rocked the foundation of my world. I would never hurt anyone, including myself. I hold life very sacred. I was a LPN, graduated top of my class and was class president. Passed my state boards with the least amount of questions possible. Held dual license in WV and KY. My passion was brain injury rehab and stroke. (I became disabled in 2009) Sadly when I was put there, the Doctor (head of the hospital) did everything to make sure I stayed. I believe it was 22 days. I think that my I behavior was in a manner fitting with the outrage I felt at being betrayed by a man I thought loved me, and being falsely accused of things.... not being psychotic. I was taught growing up that you told the truth if it "took the skin off of your back and sometimes it does". I also was brought up by a narcissistic abusive Mother whom expected perfection as I and my 3 siblings were a reflection of her and on her. So I did everything possible to be as near perfect as I could to not be in the path of her wrath.I have worked in a Psych hospital, midnight shift on the Children's unit. I know that I/and others were not monitored properly and that I did not receive my rights upon admission, I feel my rights were violated and saw many things that I do not feel were proper during that time. I think I entered the facility April 29 maybe the 30th as it was very late at night. I was supposedly psychotic and had other diagnosis as well. It is now September, less than 1 1/2 years later. I am discharged from my former psychiatric care for severe depression/anxiety brought on by years of abuse by my Mother. I had to go off of the medication given to me for being "psychotic" right after discharge as I was having severe side effects from it so I have not taken any medication for being psychotic since shortly after discharge. What is the likelihood that I "got over it" in such a short period of time as well as the other things I was labeled with in addition to my severe depression/anxiety and panic attacks?? Is there anything I can do regarding this to either have it looked into or to have the status changed?Secondly, my court order is that my ex (he grosses over $9,000 per month) is to pay me $2,000 per month. (I think it should be more). He did not pay while we were separated and I went through all the monies I had in the bank, to live on and keep up the home/bills we had formerly shared and care for our 2 puppies (both very ill). My income from disability is $810 (net). When he pays in this way instead of once a month, as ordered, I am short until the months come around that he catches up. Is this legal or should he have to pay the way it is written?More of my history.......I found out in 2013 I was born with 2 very rare condition by diagnosing myself. It explained a lot of my complicated medical history. The main one is associated with a large number of birth defects. I was born with only one kidney and have been diagnosed with kidney failure. I was born with 2 uterus' and had life threatening complications with 2 pregnancies. My life was saved (barbarically) by the bare hands of my OB/GYN resident and another physician while wide awake, when I was bleeding out from a complication and no surgeon or anesthesiologist was available to do so. I have had at least 12 surgeries and probably over 100 procedures. I have gained 2 more rare conditions since my birth for a total of 4. I see a specialist for every symptom as there is not a specialist for my main rare (Klippel Feil Syndrome). So life is very difficult to say the least.Thank you again for your time in reviewing and answering my questions.... Always is a pleasure to work with Just Answer.Kindly,Pamela

I am currently fighting a charge made to my PayPal account.

I am currently fighting a charge made to my PayPal account. I had given some information to a Tech company (outside the US) because they were supposed to REFUND the money to a bank account---the Tech company said they were unable to refund the money through my debit card-so I gave them my Paypal account. PayPal says that I owe the money because I had provided the tech company with information.JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: I live in Massachusetts but the company, I think, is in Pakistan. The payment by Paypal to the tech company was 8/25/2016.
