I am still following up on a previous question but have a

I am still following up on a previous question but have a quick question on a new topic. To catch you up, I am building a small business to house low income and homeless tenants and am learning that agencies don't really screen their clients very well at all. So I am learning and making changes!Evicted this guy in September, a drug addict and did it legally, but he keeps threatening to sue even though he has no case and knows it. He still has not filed anything in court but keeps promising to do so 7 months later. In the meantime he keeps pestering me.I didn't want to spend the $83 to get a no contact order but think it's probably time. He wants to meet me at the courthouse tomorrow at 11 AM, I think in his mind to make his threat seem more real. Here's my question and my plan.Go to the courthouse at 9 AM tomorrow morning. Get the No Contact paperwork. Fill it out and file it. Pay the $83. Present the No Contact Order to him at 11 AM tomorrow morning since he will be right there. Easy peasy. In the case that he really truly IS trying to present a case in court against in which he really has no case at all whatsoever, how would the No Contact Order apply if he were to try and file his case? Would I be wasting my money? Can I get a refund if he HAS filed something which I do not believe he has done?I know him, he lived on my property and stole from me over a period of 6 months so I know how he thinks and moves and lives his life. He's already admitted in text that he stole from me as did his friends that often stayed in his room, he just got out of jail today and literally has no friends because he steals from everyone like drug addicts do. He's not going to be filing anything in court he's just trying to scare me. HOWEVER, I am just trying to cover all my bases.THOUGHTS?I'm not afraid to face him in court. I will have 20 witnesses to testify against him maybe more. He might have a few if he promises them drugs. I'm more worried about wasting my money with a NCO.THANKS! If you can give me some direction tonight that would be awesome!

I went to my friend's Margie's house yesterday to return a small garden rake. I had taken my boyfriend's Xanax with me and placed them on top of my bag in my unlocked car. The reason I took his bottle of Xanax is because after brain tumor surgery in Aug. 2016, I worry that he might just take them all at once because some days he is very despondent. Well Margie & I were sitting in her Gazebo when one of her guy friend's, Bob appears unexpectedly. So we are all conversing, and he gets up to get another beer from his truck. He is gone, a little longer than I expected. Margie lives on a street with minimal traffic. She lives by 2 vacant houses (in good condition) and then the police station. I know Bob took them out of the bottle. There were no eye witnesses. I had met Bob briefly last Summer. I just thought he was a harmless local yokel. When he got up to leave, he said he was going to go to Junior's.Well Junior is one of Margie's Ex/ boyfriend's, and is a know marijuana & Xanax dealer. So I "know" he went right over to Junior's to sell them! My question is this worth a police report ? We live in a rural North TX town. There is no CSI here to get fingerprints? Margie has called him & of course he says he did not take them! I am very trusting. I don't lock my door at friends homes. It is nieve thinking that since I don't think about stealing from others, that they have the same mindset as I do. Please advise.Thank you.Margaret

I answered an ad on craigslist. After getting a reply, we started texting. It turned sexual. Then he told me he was 17 (legal in Ohio, where Im from and not in Florida, where I was visiting). Once I realized it was illegal in Florida I told him so and that there would be no sex involved. Am I in trouble here?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: After we agreed to meet to just hang at the pool, he supposedly has a car wreck and now his Dad is trying to "resolve" the situation by having me pay for the car damage. I'm smelling a rat here.

Are you a real person? I'm not sure my issue is really

are you a real person?JA: I'm an assistant to the Criminal Lawyer. I work with them to help customers like you.Customer: I'm not sure my issue is really criminal, or what it is. My boyfriend (we did not live together) passed away intestate and his daughter,who never liked anyone he dated,including me, is accusing me of stealing some of his things. Legally his eldest son should be in charge but hasn't done anything. She took over, only filed a small estate affidavit with the court which lists no property (he didn't own his home or car), never filed for probate, never took inventory and has removed a lot out of the house. She is merely harrassing me but I'm tired of publicly being accused of stealing his guitars, small cheap paint bottles and other little misc items which I do not have, nor care about. Should I just hope this passes?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no, I can't really afford one she hasnt pressed charges, right now she's just really angry and taking it out on me as if I'm the ONLY personhe knew. He passed away suddenly, if that helpsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no, I don't think so

I own a 4 plex in MN. I live 250 miles away in ND. I had hired someone to manage the property for me, which turned out to be a bad choice. A tenant was thrown in jail. A friend of his was supposed to get his things, but I was advised by a real estate lawyer not to do that without getting something in writing. So, in the meantime the guy in jail is accusing the manager of stealing items (which I wouldn't be surprised) so now the guy in jail is saying he spoke with a detective who told him he can go with a criminal route or a civil route. against me, even though guy in jail had no idea I even existed until a few weeks ago. It seems the manager lead him to believe that he was the owner? Not sure on that. Does the guy in jail have a case? I doubt that he had an inventory of all his items, so it would be his word against the managers word. Doesnt the guy in jail have the burden of proof?

My husband's mother lent us her car for an agreed week.

My husband's mother lent us her car for an agreed week. Before the agreed time passed she and her ex husband came and broke into the car, push started it and without a word left, all while conversing with us and denying any knowledge of what became of her car. However in the vehicle were personal belongings that were clearly not her property and are irreplaceable. We advised her she had to return them as they contains necessary legal and government issued identification as well as financial documents and personal belongings of a sensitive nature. We requested them be immediately returned however she bas refused and BC of this caused my husband to be forced to break the conditions of a court appearance due to lack of transportation back to the originating state. He has no I'd so cannot ride any public transit has no access to his bank card to pay for a ride and upon taking the car without warning she caused a warrant to be issued for his arrest. She took our personal belongings from Kansas to Colorado as well as all my husband and my tools we need to open the business and is holding them hostage more or less in an attempt to lure him to Colorado to have him arrested instead of allowing us to handle the situation privately through an attorney. Has she broken any laws and what can we do about her in a legal manner and also what are his options since he has a benchwarrant BC of her intentional act. Oh and it the theft was caught on surveillance video
