I recently had to break a lease as my husband incurred some

Hello, I recently had to break a lease as my husband incurred some medical expenses that made it very difficult to move (needs surgery). When we broke the lease we signed it said we may be responsible for rent. We had not moved yet, this was before our move in date. They told me how to pay online, and that's where I would be billed. The first rolled around, and there were no charges for me to pay. At the end of the month, they sent me a bill for the utilities to that system. I called because I was curious how an empty unit had a $60 electric bill, and they told me that I actually owe rent on it now. They then locked me out of the bill system, and told me I shouldn't have been able to see it (even though they gave me the username). We are not sure what to do, and how to proceed.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: wisconsinJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I've left voicemails with two, and have not heard back. Trying to find another one.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have all the paperwork, and screenshots of the billing site I had access to.

Health insurance. I have changed jobs. My current insurance

Health insurance. I have changed jobs. My current insurance will end on September 30th. My new job does not offer insurance. I know I can get on COBRA for 18 months, but it is incredibly expensive (Aetna). My main concern in prescription insurance. I am on 7 different prescriptions. My Qutieapine alone is $1000 a month. Is there something that is just prescription insurance that will make my prescriptions affordable? Or is there a full health insurance company that I can afford ? In my new job, I make $9.00 an hour.

I'm a contractor & my general liability just due to a

I'm a contractor & my general liability just doubled due to a construction defect lawsuit that just settled after 3 years of litigation. I shopped around for a better premium price & I found one & signed up, but just this morning when I checked my email another agent came in with a much better premium & with the same high quality "A" rated company. My question is does the 3 day right to cancel also apply with regard to insurance matters? Please advise.

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because I refused to ship his belongings, specifically his hard drives, to him. He has not cooperated with my discovery at all, I cooperated completely with his. So he filed a request for summary judgment based completely on my RFAs and a short declaration on his part.I just finished my opposition to the RSJ, but what is clear to me after doing it is that there is just no cause of action here. I refused to ship his stuff, but I kept it safe for 2 and 1/2 months and told him to come get it if he wanted it. I don't even need any discovery, really. I want the Judge to agree with me that there is no cause of action.(His case did survive a demurrer.) Is there a way to do that? Do I file something different? or in my opposition to the summary judgment, is it okay to point out that there is not really a cause of action here at all and hope the case is dismissed?

My land lord sent me a online extension to our lease via

My land lord sent me a online extension to our lease via docusign.com. I signed it and sent it back. My Fiancé also received it and sent it back. We thought we were safe for another year so we asked for some things to get fixed. Our land lord sent me an email stating he would not be extending our lease. I thought that him sending me an extension is him saying that he would like to extend the lease. Is this legal? I am so confused with this and also in a bit of panic considering we thought we would be here another year but now we need to find a place in 2 weeks. I am going back to school in a few days and also in the middle of starting a new business and about to have a break down over this.
