A company that I have a contract with argues that I owe them

A company that I have a contract with argues that I owe them $1400 and I argue that I owe them nothing. I offer them 10% of this amount. They came back and asked for 12%, or approximately $180. I sent them a check for $160. I also sent an email that said "I'm sending you a check as final resolution to this matter", but I did not write "paid in full" on the check itself. My feeling is that, since they cashed the check and have my email that says final resolution to the matter, that the matter is now closed. They are saying they want more money.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: They are California. I am in PennsyvlaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, just emails back and forth. I'm wondering how to respond for their new demand for more money.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

Hello - My father and his wife created a Living Estate, whereby they designated myself and my step-sister as the beneficiary of their home. They are now going through a divorce. The judge has not yet made a ruling as to who will keep the home, even though my dad is the only one on the deed. Can they simple add an addendum to the living estate, stating that it will become null and void in the event of a divorce, or will they have to completely revoke the trust?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at the moment
