My ex has my hot tub (I moved out earlier this year). She said she wanted to buy it but has not come up with money, made excuses that I owe her money and has blocked access to me removing it. I just want to be paid a fair price for my hot tub. It seems the cheapest way to do this is a small claims court suit for restitution. What do you recommend?

My question is an issue with Restitution.I have been on

My question is an issue with Restitution.I have been on Probation for 2 years and 10 months and will end in 1 and 1/2 month.No violations.On my sentence I was to pay Restitution to theGovernment.When I started Probation I had no property,car or Bank account. Because ofthis Financial situation my only income was Social Security.The Probation Officer orderedto take 15% from my Social Security without reporting to the Court and this has been the case until now.One month ago I received by mail a form from the Probation Office that I hadthe right to a Hearing and Public Defender but I could sign the form and waive my rights.They should have reported this situation a long time ago.Of course I did not sign it and sent a Petition for a Motion to a Hearing and Public Defender to the District Court with the Judge that sentenced me.He denied the Petition.I do not understand when this is a legal right.I would like to know my options and what you think about this case.Thank you:Manuel Fernandez.

I have a question regarding a Federal Judgement. I was

I have a question regarding a Federal Judgement. I was ordered to pay a fine to the DOJ as part of a criminal prosecution. It has a 20 yr statute. I have diligently paid the for for 13 yrs. I am now retired with my only income being social security. They offset my monthly check the maximum amount allowable. I have made a case with the financial reports I submit to the DOJ annually that this is creating a hardship & they won't lower the offsetWhat recourse do I have? Can I 'petition' the sentencing judge with a motion to 'waive' the requirement to pay or order the DOJ to adjust the offset amount? If yes----how do I do that--do I need an attorney? Do I need to appear in court? What else can I do?

My husband moved to Florida as a recent retiree and a disabled veteran. I joined him in Florida a few months later. In the meantime, he was swindled out of $80,000 by a con man promising my husband a partnership in his business. This con man bought new cars for his family and a minimal amount of product for the business. Less that 3 months later, the shop folded and the owner absconded with the 80K. This has devastated my husband and his health, along with our marriage, is going downhill. What recourse do we have?

I am in the UAE and engaged a Texas based solicitor in a US

Hi - I am in the UAE and engaged a Texas based solicitor for support in a US property acquisition. The firm was engaged to establish and LLC and bank account. They required 1000 for the bank account, but dis-engaged and stop responding to e-mail or calls. They cannot be contacted by me or the property people and I had to engage with new service providers for the property transaction. It is just unbelievable that this lawyer has my 1000 and sees no reason to respond to my requests for it to be returned. Any thoughts?
