I rented to a lady one year ago July !s. Her boyfriend comes

I rented to a young lady one year ago July !s. Her boyfriend comes for two weeks every 6 weeks. He moved in a puppy about 6 months ago and did not tell me they were doing it. I just had a security gate installed, 4000.00 he leaves property, comes back and "pushes" gate open so he can come in. I'm afraid he has ruined the operating box as I was told you had to turn it off to push it open. I did not charge her a pet deposit, or upfront deposit as she is a friends daughter. Her lease states one dog and one catJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No it just happened todayJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of

Question about legal fees: My mother paid a $2500 retainer

Question about legal fees: My mother paid a $2500 retainer fee to a law firm to clear up some international estate issues. From what my mother tells me, the firm found my grandmother's will (which I also found in one afternoon of phone calls) and that's it. My mother was then presented with a bill for $10k above the retainer fee, which she paid. She asked the firm to put a temporary hold on any additional work. She's now paid over $12k, never received a copy of her agreement with the lawyer or any of the documents the paralegal found. Am I correct in thinking this isn't right? I thought a retainer fee was a way of putting a cap on legal expenses that protects both the firm and the client and that no work over the $2.5k should have been completed without first notifying my mother. And how could simply ordering a document from a county clerk rack up over $12k?Maddeningly, my mother will not allow me or my brother to get involved, so it's $12k down the drain.

I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in

Hello I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in Columbia County Georgie in which I won. His 30 days to pay was up on yesterday. He did not pay. I have been told by a clerk there that I can file a garnishment which is even Moreno why spent out to possibly get nothing back still. I am unsure of his banking or employment other than his business name and address which I sued his sJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The person and business is in Grovetown GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I sued both the person and business but I really need my money back and I am unsure of his employment being that both the person and business I believe were under the same address. I have a phone number and email Iusee to contact him but he hasn't responded since last year. So we have no clue what to do as far as garnishments.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes ma'am as I stated previously I sued him and his business, won because both failed to answer and both parties have refused to pay me what was ordered by default in the specified timeframe. No I need to know what and how do I find out where he banks or works to file a garnishment if he is no longer in business or under another business name or what to do.
