I paid thousands of dollars for a fence work at our house by a check issued to the guy's name (instead of his construction company name) with a memo "fence & etc." on the check two years ago but he only installed the cheap posts then keeps giving excuses on delaying the installing of the fences. How much time limit (I thinks it's called "statute of limitation") do I have to file a law suit against him? He also did some remodeling work at our house before but I am not satisfied, do I have the same time limit to sue him?

My car was struck in a parking lot three years ago. The

My car was struck in a parking lot three years ago. The damage was over 750. The other party and I settled without insurance, amicably. I did not file an SR 1, didn't think I had to do so, since the other party did not want to file an insurance claim. Is there a statute of limitations for not filing an S R 1 form with the California DMV. I would like to sell my car and am concerned. The damage just involved a shallow dent and scratches made by a truck to wide to park in a parking space. I was not even in my car at the time.

My mom is an alcoholic borderline personality disorder. She

My mom is an alcoholic borderline personality disorder. She is claiming that I forged her name on a student loan in 2006, and I did not. While she did get the loan for me, the agreement was that I would keep 4000 and she could keep the 6,000, and that's what happened. She never made any payments, and now the loan is over 14,000. She claims that I forged her name to get the loan and is demanding the 14000 or she will press charges against me. Does she have a case?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Only that she has a letter from me thanking her for securing the loan, and a copy of the 6,000 check that went directly into her bank account & proof that the $4000 went into mine. I thought I could help her by getting this loan together at a low interest rate.

An old roommate of mine took my car without asking me and totalled it. I had let my insurance laps so now it's been in my driveway since February 2014. Last payment was January 2014. The loan company has not and I believe will not come get the car. They think it was burned up in a fire. I live in Texas and my question is what can I do with the car itself, I'm not contacting the bank because I'm wait on the SOL to run out. What if anything can I do with actual car, it's totalled not burned up?
