My ex-husband while he was well we were married purchased a

My ex-husband while he was well we were married purchased a car . I was told by the dealer that I had to be on the paperwork because of the laws in the state of Wisconsin I didn't want to because I didn't trust my ex but I had no choice. It turns out that my ex lied to me by telling me that the loan was taking care of on his car . Today I was served with papers for small claims stating that he owes $10,000 on the car and I am also being taken to court because I'm on the paperwork I've never driven the I take that back I drove it once . He left in 2011 to shack up with some woman who is still living with and we are now divorced and my legally obligated to pay on this or is there something that can be done?

I have a client who ordered work and didn't pay me for the work I did.

In August of 2015, me and a friend used his credit to get me

In August of 2015, me and a friend used his credit to get me a laptop from Apple. We agreed that I would be paying monthly till the total of 1,200 was paid off. Well, on some months he didn't deposit the money that I would give him. And he also used the card for his own expenses, ex. bars, gas, and school things and he never paid back. Now he's threatening to take me to small claims court and telling me that I owe him one thousand dollars and threating to take back the laptop. How do I go about this? Can he take back something that was given to me almost two years ago? Even though I know for sure that I have been paying him?

I briefly attended a for-profit college from late 97-early

I briefly attended a for-profit college from late 97-early 98. When I withdrew from the school, the school immediately sent my account to a law firm for debt collection. From 98-about 00, I made monthly payments to the firm until the debt was paid off. Today, in 2017, I am told by the school that I still owe them money! The school rep was unhelpful, and kept insisting I owe money, instead of listening to what I was saying and trying to get to the bottom of the issue. I called the law firm that I made the payments to, but I was told that they are "no longer the same office," that they have not represented the school in many years. The assistant did try to look me up in their records, but they have no information about me. My question is: I am scared that this school is going to send more debt collection after me. What can I do to find proof that I paid the debt and protect myself? After all these years, and many moves (I was in the military), I no longer have any documents to indicate I paid.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The school is in PennsylvaniaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think I've got it covered so far.
