I'm getting sued tree removal There was a verbal agreement
I'm getting sued for a tree removal There was a verbal agreement that the tree company would pay the insurance deductible when I told them I could not afford to pay them the 6200.00 they quoted to do the tree removal work. We included verbiage on the written quote "Ins. to pay" I signed and they signed. The Ins company wanted a amore detailed receipt, so they added some general items they said would be doing and I signed it and turned in to Ins company. No Ins to pay was on that receipt. The Ins company paid me the total value less the deductible, and I in return paid the tree company the 3000. that the Ins check was for. They took check never said a word and cashed it. about a week later I got a notice from the court saying they were suing for 3000.00., that the 3000.00 paid was a deposit. Whats my options or chances?

Former friend owes me $2500 in loans. No official contract,
Former friend owes me $2500 in loans. No official contract, I didn't ask for interest. I have a few hundred messages with them about this loan saved. I do not have all the receipts for the loans, but I do have them acknowledging what is owed in the saved messages. We had an agreement and they haven't paid up on it (explained out in the saved messages). We are both in the military, so I at least know they have a steady paycheck that comes in at the same time as mine.What legal advice should I seek?Do I have a case for small claims court? If I do, I plan on asking for $4000, to cover court fees and grievances.How do I go about getting reimbursed what is owed to me?

I Am not sure what area of law my question pertains to. It
I Am not sure what area of law my question pertains to. It is a family related money matter. I need an answer from an attorney licensed in NY state. My jurisdiction is Suffolk County. My husbands former spouse borrowed $110,000.00 from his mother and signed a promissory note to pay her back when the marital residence was sold. She was one half owner at the time. This loan violated the stipulation of settlement of divorce which prohibited either party from using the house as collateral. She subsequently signed the house over to my husband in exchange for his paying roughly $50,000 in secured judgments against her. After payment of her secured judgments, half the mortgage, real estate and legal fees etc. there would have been no more than 35-40 thousand left in her half of the equity. We wanted to sell the house and give his mother whatever equity she had left but my mother in law wanted to continue to stay. We agreed to keep the house for three years (until my husbands daughter graduated) and let his mother remain in exchange for that equity. That was a verbal agreement. His mother filed a satisfaction for the $110,000 with the state and she continued to live in the house with not contributions for three more years. Does she have legal standing to try to recover any of the money in the promissory note if I sell the house. The house became mine after my husbands death as a tenant by the entirety. We were both on the deed.
