  • What do I do if someone says they did not receive a money order from me?

    It's been 6 months and they didn't contact me to tell me they never received it. I sent it certified mail and I have the receipt, so I really thought there was no problem, until I called THEM and asked why they never dismissed the case, they said they never received the money order. I called the money order company and they said it was never cashed. The thing is, I have PROOF I sent it to them with a signature and everything. I faxed the proof over to them. They are now saying I owe them more legal fees and late fees and penalties and it's going on my credit report and blah, blah, blah. It costs $30 to get the money order refunded and 60 days. I don't know what to do. I know they are supposed to get their money but who's fault is it? How would the court rule? Is it mine for not making sure the money order got cashed even though I can prove it was received? Theirs for not calling me to let me know they did not receive it? Or the post office's for possibly delivering it to the wrong place? I do not want to incur any other fees. Since I faxed them proof that I sent it, they have not called me. I really want to be proactive about this. Since they told me they didn't receive it I have been jumping through hoops to show I did. They are being really fishy about this and I don't want to issue another money order and they cash the old one and then I'm out double the money. We are going to court again in a few weeks. What can I do in the mean time? What would you do?

  • What can I do if my neighbor painted their side of a shared fence and it dripped onto my side over the top?

    We just shared in the cost of a brand new fence with the neighbor, and they painted their side today, which is fine, except it dripped onto our side which makes the fence look terrible. We went over to stop them from doing it, but we only got them to stop on half the fence. They did nothing to let us know they were painting it and it might drip. They did nothing to remedy the problem. We put paint stripper on the fence and it just smeared the paint into the wood which made it worse! What can I do? Do I have any legal rights? Is it graffiti? Help please! Thank you!

  • What can I do for Christmas that is giving back to those in need for free? ?

    I don't have a lot of money. I donated Toys for Tots, I adopted a family for Christmas (when you buy them gifts, tree, food, etc.) I got everyone gifts. I'm hosting Christmas dinner at my house, but I want to do something really nice for those in need! I was thinking of taking everyone caroling at an elderly center, or volunteer at a homeless shelter, or something like that. Does anyone have any good ideas. I really want to GIVE and I need ideas. Please remember, I don't have a lot of money, I'm just a waitress, so the ideas have to cost nothing. Please help!

  • Is there anything I can do once a tentative ruling has been made against me? ?

    I asked a judge to set aside judgement for me, they denied me because they ruled against me last Friday at 3 and I had an hour to contact their attorney and tell them I wanted my case heard? I don't understand. I didn't know they could do that. I didn't even know it was happening. What can I do? Can I ask for it to be reversed?

  • Is this unlawful detainer filed against me legally? ?

    I submitted a letter of intent to vacate my apartment on the condition that my complex called me to make final arrangements. They never called me. They filed an unlawful detainer against me and I didn't respond, I moved out. Now default judgment has been issued against me. But I couldn't file a response because I lost someone close to me and 5 days wasn't enough time. I was mourning. I paid my rent on time, they claimed they had already rented the apartment, but then told me the new tenant had not signed the lease. What arguments can I give in court to have the judgment set aside and also to prove my case? What is the legal jargon I need to use. I feel like I am not being clear. I think it has to do with Mistake. Please help!

  • Is it ageism for me not to receive a senior discount? ?

    I am 32. But I can't help how old I am! It's like the color of your skin. Why do seniors get a benefit I do not? What if I am a senior by relativity because my life will end by 35? You never know!? I think it's discrimination!

  • What are my rights? Tenant Landlord issue! ?

    I gave notice on my apartment to vacate on the 5th of this month. Well, the place I'm moving into isn't ready until the 20th of this month. (It got pushed back-long story-not my fault at all). So I spoke with my landlord and asked them if I could stay a few weeks longer and of course pay rent. They said no, they have already rented to another person. So I have nowhere to go. They served me with an eviction notice today. They won't take any rent from me. I live in California. Anyone have any advice? I don't want an eviction on my record. It doesn't even specify when I need to move on the notice. Any good advice?

  • What is the penalty for a DUI probation violation in California?

    My roommate got a DUI a few years ago. She's on probation for it and was set to come off of probation this coming February. She got pulled over the other night and had to submit for the breath test. She blew a .05. They impounded her car and took her to jail. They also gave her a blood test. On the ticket, it just says probation violation. Has anybody gone through this or knows what the penalties will be for her? Jail time? The approximate cost? Any web links would also be helpful. Thank you in advance.
