  1. How can I get an extension for more time when I have been mailed a termination of tenancy that says I have 30 days to be out. Ive read this is not the same thinfg as an eviction notice. Would I have to be served with a Evicition Notice too.
  2. My home was sold at foreclosure auction by Regions Mortgage to Fannie Mae on 7/7/18 for the amount owed on loan which was $93,000, Fannie Mae is now selling it for $185,500. Could I be entitled to any of the equity that is left after fees and charges. Also, I was under the impression the 2 were in some way both the lender.
  3. I am not sure where to ask this question so I will ask it here. Let me give a brief rundown of the situation. About 6 weeks ago my aunt had a stroke. How my mom found out was when my aunt did not call her for their weekly lunch thing she blew up my aunts phone. My aunt just had her liver transplant operation a few months before so she was worried. My aunt's husband (I have never claimed him as an uncle) finally answered and told my mother that my aunt was in the hospital because she had a stroke 4 yes I said 4 days earlier. My mom asks what was going on, had he called my grandma, what was her condition...etc.. He replied that he was waiting for test results to come back before he notified anyone that she was in a medically induced coma. I told my mom to get ready we are going to the hospital because I do not trust him. We get to the hospital in downtown Atlanta and go into the Neurological ICU and find out that she was in a come and not medically induced. They had to drill a hole in her head to release pressure. She was unconscious when she arrived and has never woke up. Then the nurse that is assigned to my aunt starts asking us what my aunt goes by, music or movies she likes strange questions about my aunt. I got it, she was asking them so she could talk to her like she knew her. I then asked the nurse why have you not asked her husband these questions. The nurse replied he only calls here in the morning. He has never been here. Not even when the ambulance brought her here. So let's say that when my other aunt, uncles, and grandparent find this out as well as other things over the next 5 weeks her husband gets called and blessed out a few times. My mother went there only 2 times a week and was there more than her husband went there. Parking cost too much and the traffic in Atlanta drives him crazy was the reasons he gave. Now the problem. She is now awake. Has to learn how to talk, walk even swallow again. She was doing great at the hospital. We went to go see her 3 days ago and the hospital said she had been moved. We were not told she was just not there. I asked the nurse in the rehabilitation section if this was normal and she replied yes but not this soon. If she has been moved to a facility that deals with stroke patients that is a good thing. My aunt's husband moved her to a nursing home. Not a rehabilitation kind of home. Just a regular nursing home right across from their apartment. She only gets physical therapy every other day. Here is the bigger issue. He has stopped all family from coming there. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO SEE HER. The nursing home is following his wishes. Is there anything we or shall I say my now hysteric mother can do?
  4. My county Tax Assessor is effectively stealing some of my land and forcing me to pay tax on part of my neighbors land. This has happened due to the Assessors office forcing a flawed plat description of the adjacent land upon their aerial photograph which they use for determining ownership/taxation. The survey plat has two clear, obvious flaws and both are being included in the mapping of the metes and bounds upon the photograph. The survey is 30 years old and has been dormant in the public records until the last year when the assessor superimposed the plat on the photo. This has resulted in me losing a fraction of an acre of my land and "gaining" a small triangle of my neighbors land. My acreage has been reduced to accommodate the map change. This effectively creates a piece of "no man's land", I can only believe that in doing a revised planimeter check of my new property lines, the small portion of my neighbors property is now included in the total acreage I will be taxed upon in the future. I have tried to explain the problem being caused by the two errors on the plat and the Assessor will only say they have reviewed the matter with their GIS personnel and their mapping has been confirmed as correct. He states he is following the state law in mapping the plat exactly as shown. I have suggested some gross examples of errors which could occur on a plat and he says, yes, he would plat it on the tax maps just like the plat shows-no leeway. The current GIS employee knows its wrong but has her hands tied. I am soliciting help from the County Commissioners and the County Manager in getting him to see the light but I hold out little help for the Assessor to be swayed in his position. My next step may be to hire an attorney and sue for damages for conversion of my property ownership and rights, damage to my title, and for having to exert so much effort to prove the obvious facts and being faced with the equivalent of a stone wall. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
  5. I work for large government contractor who outsources workers comp claims. I developed trigger finger as a result of my job. I have done the splint and medication treatment recommended by ortho surgeon. He recommended surgery. He told me the WC approval takes weeks. That was three months ago. Is there not a time limit on how long they can make me wait for relief? I’m being forced to use my other hand which is now developing trigger finger as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  6. My girlfriend who is 17 moved in with me and her siblings moved to another county the highschool unenrolled her because we had no proof of residency is her mother going to be charge for truancy?

  7. Does an employer have the right to tell you if you can work a part time job while out on sick leave from a surgery? If you have limitations on lifting, squatting, or climbing ladders, can the employer tell you that you can not work an administrative job part time? I was recently out on sick leave for a surgery that limited my lifting, squatting, and climbing ladders. My primary job does not offer "light duty" options. I was told I have to have permission to work at my second job even if it is an administrative job that does not violate the terms of my sick leave reasons. Do they have the right to dictate what I can do on sick leave since the leave is my earned and approved leave from work?
  8. I was issued a ticket of failure to stop at a stop sign. When I read the ticket the name was of another women as well as the birthday and physical description. How will this effect my situation?
  9. I owned a very small construction delivery s corp from '89 to '12 when the state dissolved it for lack of yearly fee which I found out about in '17. I am the only employee since '08 & continued as a sole proprietor since. Business was decimated in great recession as customers in '08-'09 didn't pay & then almost no business. Stuck with debt that built until '12. Managed to pay off all debt except 2 credit cards. In '11 or '12 called Capitalone & told them I couldn't pay the $14,000 & they agreed to take payments of 200/mo. & do a write off. The payments were made every month but decreased over the years. I retired in '17 on $1061 social security & a few small deliveries. I finally missed the payment in Nov. '18 which they immediately sent to collections for $11,400. Got my 1st inquiry from that firm yesterday. Second credit card was Lowes for $14,500. I have kept this card current by paying interest each month, but now will not be able to pay that any more. In less than a month I will be hearing from their collection folks. Both cards are in the name of the incorporated corporation as business accounts. The corp had/has no assets in '12 or now. Should I write/call them that the corp does not exist, wait til lawsuits are filed & then state entity doesn't exist, file bankruptcy for the corp against both, let them get a default judgement & try to collect versus a nonexistent or what?

  11. Hello to all! My mother has guardianship of my three kids. Age 10-11. I had them when I was 17 and so she took over the primary care of them as I was just overwhelmed. During this time, I still lived in the same household as the kids and my mom but I was in school and unable to take them to their appointments so we took a piece of notebook paper and I signed that she was their guardian and we got the note notarized. This was in 2008 or maybe 2009. My mother really means well, but now that I am completely finished with school and making decent money Inwant to move out with the children and she tells me I can not. I understand that she’s helped me immeasurably and of course loves the kids, but she keeps saying she will take me to court and tell the judge that I wanted an abortion at first and that I am an unfit parent because I’ve been living with her for so long. Can someone please tell me if the paper we signed can stop me from taking me kids and moving out with them? Thank you.
  12. I was arrested February 2017 for a misdemeanor and felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The fact is I have never been charged with a felony much less convicted and I've never stepped foot in Superior Court. The felony charged was later dismissed and I was acquitted of the misdemeanor charge. The criminal record was corrected with the GBI by my criminal attorney but the felony charge is still published on public websites advertising criminal background checks. The felony arrest with my photo was published in a newspaper and their website too. My question is do I have a lawsuit for libel defamation and if so against whom?
  13. I had totaled my car in May and my father presented me to this mechanic who lived near my area. He had tinkered with my fiancé’s car and we had trusted the he could help us,plus; he was cheap and lived near us. Two months go by and my car is still at his place getting fixed. He kept giving us excuses and reminded us that It’d be done soon. At that point we just wanted to take the car elsewhere to get it fixed but we had already payed him. We asked him to pay us back and he was having personal issues and said he wasn’t paying his rent due to his wife stealing all of his money or something (I couldn’t make this up even if I tried), therefore he couldn’t pay us so we had might as well wait until he finished what he started. It’s novemeber and he was forced to leave his home. We had to tow my car from his place and to our surprise he had taken the car battery. I regret not making him sign some form of contract for legal purposes because it never occurred to me that this would happen. Ive learned from my mistakes.I had payed him $1,500 for him to fix my car and I basically got robbed. that and I got a broken car missing a battery. Can I take any action even though I have no proof that he had worked for us as our mechanic? It’s a stretch but I still had to ask. Thank you.
  14. On 11/21 I was rear ended by a teenager doing between 45-55 mph (I was at a stand still awaiting the ability to turn into my neighborhood-my blinker was on and witness testified to this on the police report). It was totally her fault and it has probably totaled my car. Whats worse is as of yesterday the family hasn't even contacted their insurance to accept liability for the wreck. I went to ER the same night and of course my neck-back-head-hips and leg is hurting. I realize it was a holiday weekend-however I have still been unable to get a rental car (luckily a friend loaned me a spare car) even tho I filed the claim on Friday morning -until the other family calls or returns calls-the claim is at a stand still. I do not have medical insurance and my car insurance company says I have medical coverage on my auto insurance however if I use it they cannot collect from the other insurance. I am in pain and cannot get a doc or chiro to see me unless I pay out of pocket. I do not want to get a lawyer but it seems I am not going to get the medical I need unless I do. The day of the wreck -the mother of the teenager that hit me mentioned that her daughter (the driver of the car) has epilepsy and this is why I believe they are not returning calls to their insurance. What are my options? Yes I have talked to their insurance company and they have left them a message but still at a stand still. Thoughts? Suggestions?

  16. Im a father about to go through the divorce process. Certain of a custody battle, I would like to have any advantage I could possibly have. I ultimately would love joint custody, since my children's mother is actually an excellent mother, but she's also a terrible person and will fight for full custody (which I know she won't get because I'm a great father). Not only can I prove that she's committed adultery with multiple people, she's attempted suicide a few times and often tells me that she's going to kill herself and leave me with the kids. I have text messeges of her telling me about planning to kill herself, but i dont have proof of her suicide attempts. Is there any way that any of this could help in court?
  17. My father has defrauded the bank and myself by taking money from my account without permission and forging my signature on bank documents and invoices for the money. What kind of lawyer for I need?
  18. I missed 2 days because of pain in my upper back and arms. I sent my supervisor a text letting him know that I couldn't work because of the pain but didn't say what caused it. In fear of loosing my job. I returned to work but wasn't able to do my job . I let him know that I wasn't able to return yet and needed to leave. He then said I needed to bring a drs. Report before I could return again. So I went to get my pay check and he met me as I got there wanting to know if I could work the next day. I explained to him that if he wanted a drs.excuse I couldn't afford a Dr. Visit and that my injury was from work. So his attitude changed he basically said that I was a lier. He wouldn't give me any information on workman's compensation. I never seen a poster so I didn't have any information. I still have not been seen by a Dr. But was told that I couldn't come to work. I ask if I was being terminated he said no so I ask for workers comp info and he said I would first have to see my Dr. To find out if I was truly injured.i ask again if I was being terminated for my injury. He stated I terminated my self . I let him and owner know I wasn't quitting my job. Owner of the company replied in email saying I was no longer employed. 3 days no call no show. Complete lie .do I have any rights to sue.
  19. I recently had my former employer served after filing Discrimination in the Cobb County Court Sytem. This was after the case was dismissed by the EEOC. I was discriminated against, me and several others who were on approved FMLA. After being served I was contacted by the defendants attorney who asked to extend the date to respond to additional month, Sept 17th 2018 because they needed more time, I said that was fine. That attorney also told me that they were changing the location from Cobb City to the State Court in Atlanta. I got a huge envelope of papers I don’t understand. I do not have an attorney representing me. I called the defendants attorney last week to inquire if a court date had been set to which the Attorney told me he had until the 17 to file and that he planned to file for dismissal. Today, Sept 17 th he emails me the dismissal. How do I stop the dismissal motion. Who do I contact? I was told after I filed that the defendants attorney would be contacting me discuss settling the case. What am I required to do next. I want my day in court.

  25. HELP! My landlord sold this house shortly after we moved in, signing only a 6 month lease. We were under the impression that the lease would turn to at-will after that (as our lease states, unless landlord give WRITTEN notice of termination, 30 days prior) The day before lease would actually expire, she call to discuss pick up of the monthly rent, and gives us a verbal 30 day notice. But she also, after lease had expired, took partial payment for the month. Am I still responsible for that months rent if already given notice? If she took partial payment, can she still evict me for failure to pay? I am in Georgia, isn't she supposed to give 60 day notice?? She will be calling me today to make sure her prosess in working (im sure she thinks I won't research it and because I cannot afford a lawyer) I have done EXTENSIVE research on it ( noone will talk to me physically without money) I just need to make sure I am correct in my plea and stand a chance if I fight this. ANY help you can offer is greatly appreciated..
