I left my 87 Porsche at a shop and paid repairs 11

I left my 87 Porsche at a shop and paid for body repairs 11 years ago. The owner kept my car all this time and never completed my body repair and he would not release my car to me to get the repairs done elsewhere. The shop owner died and I got his son to release my car to me. Many of my very expensive body parts and engine parts are missing. I fear they were sold. I was unable to find them at the shop. The son let me look around. I have insurance but the insurance wants a police report on the theft of services. The shop is in Harris County in Texas and the Sheriffs Dept would not come and give me a police report. I plan on calling the constable next. My insurance says they are required to have a police report. I don't know if this will be a stumbling block to recover my damages from them. How should I move forward with this?

In Texas, am I entitled to documentation (typically an invoice)

In Texas, am I entitled to documentation (typically an invoice) for what I am paying for before I am obligated to pay for said services/parts? I have a case where I have a documented estimate, but after the work was performed I was verbally told that I owed significantly more (38% more). I responded that I would pay when I get documented evidence of what I am paying for and now they have threatened me with legal action.

One of my employees day care is telling her that she hadn't

one of my employees day care is telling her that she hadn't paid since September. She knows better, but being young and not quite in the know yet didn't keep her receipts.Now the daycare is telling her verbally that she has until tomorrow to pay 1600.00 or she is going to file theft of services on her. It has been my belief that the person must show some proof of trying to collect the debt before that can be done. If you could just give us an answer to this question please

I have been staying in an extended stay hotel since the 4th

I have been staying in an extended stay hotel since the 4th of july. I was here to to medical issues and surgery. I ended up having to stay longer than planned as I could not drive. I have been here tax exempt because I am here more than 30 days and considered non-transient. In September, I ran behind on my monthly bill due to medical problems. I had informed GM and 8 told her I would try to stay til I could settle. 10 days ago she gave me a notice to quit. I paid half my balance this weekend. She told me I could voluntarily leave or stay if I paid arrears and advance. I had a bad fall Thursday in the bathroom here due to a commode leak. I am handicapped and had to call paramedics to get me up. I told GM today I was leaving today while my knees were medicated so I could drive. She was polite and thanked me for my stay with the knowledge my balance should be paid in about 2 weeks. HOWEVER, she added, " I do hope you realize any bill over 2000.00 is considered a Felony? (In PA). While I do understand the term'theft of services' She gave the notice to quit. I am considered a tenant and this should be a civil matter. It is not my intent not to pay her. I have already paid about 9000.00..but it just that the balance of 'my rent' is late. Please help as I am not well. And this has really upset me.PS...this is not my first time in an extended stay and I have never been threatened like this. I was a medical traveler for 35 yrs...and never anything like this.

What are my options here? I recently got married, the day of the wedding I went to pick up my flowers, the florist didn't have them ready thought my wedding was the next day. Didn't have the flowers I ordered told me to come back in an hour in a half and she would think of something. Came back to get them, some of my flowers were wilting in my bouquet and she put roses in my other corsages which was something I asked not to have. I was extremely upset with my flowers so I canceled the check I had written for them. Now florist is claiming that it is theft.
