    Due Process

    I am in a Civil Action in Circuit Court, small claims. I have served the Defendants 2 times. Each time service was accepted. First service was by U.S. Postal, return receipt requested signature. The envelope was signed for by the Management Company for a Corporation. The defendants did not appear at trial/hearing. The sitting judge wrote out a "Sheriff's Service" and that was also served by "Sheriff" and accepted/completed. The sitting judge at 2nd hearing/trial said service was not done. The Attorney who appeared for Defendants denied that either the first service or the Sheriff's Service had been received. The sitting judge (who was not the same judge) said that service must be made on all three Defendants separately. The Board of Directors are three people of a Corporation. They employ a vendor/Management Company. All correspondence to the Board of Directors and the Association Company is directed to be sent to the Management Company in their rules and regulations. Question: Is a three person (officially elected) Board a "formal entity" of a "parent company"? Can service of a complaint be served to "The Board of Directors of (titled Company) as an single "titled entity"? Each Board Member (total of 3) were named as "Party to the Complaint" in the "Complaint Pleading". Question: Was service to defendants completed or does Plaintiff have to serve each separate Board member on 3 separate mailings? Thank you for your very kind response? M. Ivory, Blue Island, IL
  2. Hi, I have a question regarding the evicion that was filed under my name, however I was not the one being evicted... Here's a quick summary: I own a condo (fully paid off). I haven't lived there for over 3 years. Meanwhile, I allowed a young family to stay there (close family friends). Our condo association does not allow to rent units, however even thought I was not renting it - it was considered as if I was.. (if a unit owner does not live there OR relative, then it's considered rental). As soon as Condo Association found that out, they asked me to get the tenants out of the unit. I notified tenants and unfortunately it took them 2 months to leave (they ahd to find new place..). Sometime in week 6 (as tenants were moving out), the condo association filed for eviction under my name. It said "John Smith and UNKOWN TENANTS". They have now confirmed that tenants have moved out and they will dismiss the case on 10/18. - Here are my questions: 1. Did Condo Assosiations law firm did the right thing? meaning that should they have filed eviction under MY NAME? If no, what should I do? (I have court date of 10/18) 2. What can I do to remove the eviction record? I'm going to court in less than 3 weeks and wonder if there's anything I can do to get rid of? My biggest convern is that now i have eviction record under my name and I'm moving in next 2 months. It will make it nearly impossible to get approved for an appartment. Thank you.

    2 part story.

    So a person in another vehicle was using his phone and went off road on the shoulder and hit a pole and ended facing the wrong way on the opposite lane. He was ticketed for use of electronic devices, too fast for conditions,and improper lane usage. (A disabled vehicle) 4am on a dark road. So our friend is driving to work and could not see the vehicle until the last second, since it had no lights on or anything, swerving and hitting the vehicle. Their insurance says they wont pay for our friends car because it was disabled and we should of avoided. And they want our friends ins to pay for the damage she did. Is allstate correct?

  6. Is there a recommendation on which side should own the paperwork? It makes sense to me that the person owns the pension account from which the qdro will come should take care of the paper.
  7. My Employer is doing construction on their building and are closing 2 days of the work week 3 times in the next couple months, which is cutting into hourly paychecks. Is this legal? Since they are hired as Full time employees? They are part of a union, which I would think would protect them from this type of action.
  8. Counselors: I would like to 'serve a civil complaint against a corporation'. It is a national, multi-state corporation in the United States. The agents of this national corporation have many agencies within each U.S state. That is: If it is the Corporation of Allstate Insurance Group, and one of their agencies/agent who insures my home is the agency/agent I wish to file a civil suit, under an Illinois State Statute, then do I make 'service process' to the agency/agent who issued the home insurance? Or, do I file make 'service process' against the 'Corporate Headquarters' and name the 'local Illinois agency/agent? Or, do I 'service process' to both the Corporate Headquarters separately and an additional 'service process' on the same 'complaint pleading' to the 'local Illinois agency/agent?, i.e. (2 separate 'service processes'). Thank you so very much for your help. M. Ivory, Blue Island, IL. 60406

    New tenant issue

    I am a tenant and my building is a three flat. I live on the top floor. Our building recently got new tenants in the building this year first week of July. Ever since they moved in they have been nothing but trouble. They are inconsiderate of the property/peoples things they leave trash everywhere they smoke marijuana all day every day. I got threatened by the husband's brother who to my belief our landlord does not know about the brother residing with the husband and his family. He said he will beat me up and get his gang on me.. i told my landlord they have been nothing but an issue to the entire building threatened me according to the cops they have been called the day before i had an Issue. I want to insure these people are gone and i know i will be safe in the building my way of doing that is only giving my landlord half of the rent till these people are gone. Now he legally can evict them asap with the amount of drug use taking place here. Now i have been threatened. And cant i technically do that only pay half that is cause technically the landlord broke the lease by the home being unsafe and uninhabitable?

    Am I owed back pay

  11. I have worked for a man who has paid me in cash for various things I did for him. I recently quit for reasons you will read. There are emails him begging I come back and work for him While I was working for him these past few months he has send me Numerous texts that fall under verbal abuse threats/blackmail. Sex offers. I also have a separate court case where he is Not involved in where he has threatened to put me in jail and I fear he wants to somehow sabatage me. Is there Anything I can do to File A HUGE LAWSUIT. CAZ THIS MAN DESERVES IT
  12. I was on unemployment, but got a job: 2 months ago I signed a job offer letter agreeing that the job was contingent on permanently relocating to a new state within 1 month. Offline, my boss told me don't worry about the letter, just sign it, you can work remotely from your home city and that he authorized it: so that's what I've been doing. They've been employing me and paying me while I work remotely, even after the 1 month deadline. Now my boss said that's not what he meant, I can't work remotely, I'm required to permanently relocate to the new state immediately. The employee handbook says if you don't show up at your assigned work location (that other state) for 3 days in a row, the company considers you as having voluntarily resigned. They also say I agreed to relocate (since I signed that offer letter) and my boss denies giving me permission to work remotely (even though the company has, in practice, been employing me as a remote worker). Will I be disqualified from unemployment since I signed a job offer letter agreeing my employment was contingent relocating? I know you DO get unemployment if you leave/lose a job because it changes location. I don't know if I screwed myself over by originally (supposedly) agreeing to relocate originally? They're going to say I voluntarily quit, but I say it's constructive discharge.
  13. My son turned 18 and is transitioning from a therapeutic high school to a transition program. He is his own guardian. The transition program is full-time, but he is taking one college class this semester and plans to take more later. Since he is still in the IEP, he does not have a diploma. However, his father has filed to stop child support, claiming that our son has "graduated." According to Educational Law, is he graduated from high school?
  14. Hi everybody, I’m having a rough time. I have several limiting and chronic medical conditions, that I understand will stay with me forever. I’ve gotten pretty good at managing them and accepting my new normal. In January, I was actually paralyzed from the bellybutton down. That was terrifying. As for a reason why, doctors were debating over whether it was a functional neurological condition, or my back was just pushing too hard on my spinal chord and it would loosen eventually. Since the paralysis corresponded directly with back spasms, and my back felt a release whenever I would regain motion, I tend to believe that the problem was in my back. My parents were having a rough time with accepting that I was in a wheelchair and projected a lot of anger and blame onto me, their 16 year old daughter. I haven’t felt safe since then. Recently they brought up sending me away from my junior year of high school to a program in another state that is not guaranteed to help me in any way, shape, or form. I am having a really difficult time handling this, especially since my future matters so much to me. My stress had been under control, but now, with them bringing me to this facility to treat a condition I don’t think I have for months, away from my school, friends, familiararity, and other coping strategies, I’m scared of what I might do. It makes me especially angry because they don’t understand how I feel or how well I manage it all, and because I’m only 2 years away from being a legal adult. I feel like this program would upset my future and schoolwork, push me behind schedule, worsen my medical conditions, put me in a mentally unsafe position, and separate me from all I’ve ever known. They have psychologically and emotionally damaged me for years, but I could handle that. I know they mean well, but this is going to be the end of me. Is there any way I could start making my medical decisions independently at 16? Or do I have a custody case? Both of my parents are dead set on this to remove the burden my illnesses put on their lives, but I don’t know anyone else. I feel like I am so close to my graduation and that all I need is control over my medical and mental health. Is there anyway to do that? Please help me!!

    Ignoring a valid survey

    I have a property line dispute with my neighbor in a small town, so I have a survey done and the neighbor has clearly crossed over property line and has no regard for the survey. Call the zoning officer and the police department and they pretty much gave him verbal permission to put a fence on my property, they both stated that it is only a few inches I asked the mayor for the Neighbors fence permit and he denied my request. what are my option? I would like to have the fence move also the cut a few tree root from my tree,
  16. When a Plaintiff's initial complaint is dismissed and defendants are held for "naught", and then the judge allows the Plaintiff to "Amend Complaint", are the prior initial filings of complaint which are now 'dismissed' or 'denied' as to 'not properly served'.... is the initial complaints 'stricken' from the court records? and therefore cannot be accessed upon an appeal? thank you for your kind response. Does the word "strike" mean the whole record is no longer available for a "request for preparation of records" on appeal?
  17. Our neighbors above ground pool collapsed funneling 20,000 gallons of water directly toward our home. Water filled our window wells, and the pressure caused the windows to explode, depositing 6 inches of water and mud in our 1,100 square foot finished basement. Neither our insurance company or our neighbors will cover the damage sighting "surface water", which is not covered under either policy. The cost of repairs is in the $10,000 range, which would qualify for small claims court in Illinois. Any advice on moving in this direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Visition laws

    My husband has custody of his two daughters and they’re mother has a restraining order nd the courts first denied her all visitation so went back to court and changed it so now she can only see the girls on her visitation days wich she only has because he was nice enough to let her have weekends but my question is we pulled up to drop them off and she was high out of her mind so we told her the girls couldn’t stay she called the cops and they told us we have to go back to court and change it wich we already are waiting for a new court date but she has been unable to serve. when he granted her visitation she had her own house and since then while waiting for a court date she has lost her house her car and on drugs bad question is he allowed to denie her her visitation and not let the girls go for they’re own safety since she is clearly high and acting crazy ?? Or he is obligated to let the kids go no matter what ??
  19. I have illinicare insurance- a medicaid plan and I was seeing a local chiropractor for about 3 years in this time I never once received a bill or receipt or anything. I just sign in on a piece of paper when I got there and that was it. I was going on average three times a week because it was paid for by my insurance. Recently I made comment to my dad that he could go there because he has the same insurance and my dads gf said she thought other wise that they only accepted my insurance until age 18. At this point I was almost 20. I texted the chiropractor that owns the office and she confirmed what my dads gf had said. I replied and asked her how that was possible If i had been going to her for over a year since I had turned 18. she told me she would have to look into it. I never heard back then all of a sudden she tells me I do in fact have a bill about a month went by where she was supposedly "making adjustments". I asked her why I was never notified or sent a bill and she said it was because my insurance takes forever to submit payment so they were waiting. I then received a $ two thousand some dollar in the mail. She "adjusted it down" to$450 I talked to another chiropractor I know who told me to call my insurance. I did and my insurance has no record of them ever submitting a bill to her, I also never received a insurance denial for any of the visits or received a bill prior to the $450 one. I called the office and requested EOB's for all the claims they submitted. The office was very rude. I ended up calling again and was told they would look into it and never received a call back. I then got another bill in the mall with a "this bill is due now! sticker". I emailed the owner again and told her I had called and wasn't going further with the bill until I was given the forms I requested. Never heard anything back. Today I got a third bill in the mail with a sticker that says"your insurance states your responsible for this bill payment is due immediately!". The bill charges me 50$ for every visit without my insurance yet the office offers an out of insurance program for cash patients and only charges 15$. What do I do here? If I knew my insurance wasn't paying I wouldn't have continued going because I cant afford it. Another thing to is that they claim "Apex insurance" was paying before, yet ive never had Apex insurance and have no idea who they are. Thanks
  20. Is it illegal for a dealership to sell you a car that was in an accident, no matter the severity, without informing you before purchase?
  21. I worked for 2 large corporations. At the first company,( Corp A) which I left about a year ago, I had a female co-worker sexually harass me. I took another job for which I was recruited, but the job, for reasons of its own, lasted only six months. I would like to get my job back at my old company. I know the statute has passed for me to file with the EEOC. Secondly, I went to work at another large corporation. This was about two months after I was let go from Corp A. During the two months, I had some strange hip/sciatica malady. I had to use a cane to walk, and the commute from home to office was quite taxing. I was in physical therapy at the time, and often my direct supervisor would not let me leave until she was satisfied with my work, and I would often end up missing my physical therapy appointments. I also had a lot of back pain and requested back support, which they refused to provide for me. As a result of this, I now have increased right hip pain which will require more medical intervention. When I told them that I was having trouble seeing the small print on their computer screens, they let me go. Do I have any recourse with either of these two companies? It has been a really hard year. I am in constant pain on my right hip and I will be going back to physical therapy again. I don't know if this is a worker's comp situation, discrimination, both, or neither. I need some advice please.

    Need help....

    My husband is in Pickneyville & we are trying to get him out on work release, unfortunatly that does not seem possible is there any other way to get a person out early?
  24. on Sunday august 5, 2015 a country club sponsored a golf tournament in which a automobile dealership would donate an automobile as a prize to any golfer who shot a hole in one. The automobile was parked near the clubhouse with an advertisement poster stating the free automobile for any golfer who shot a hole in one. I paid the requisite entrance fee for me and my son to participate in the tournament. My son who is 16 (minor) shot a hole in one in presence of other members. We notified the dealership but they refuse to tender the automobile. Can anyone give me any references to any similar case regarding advertising contracts that are false? can my me and/or my son sue the auto dealership or the country club that sponsored the event? any references or responses would be appreciated.
  25. Im a stay at home dad, wife obviously the breadwinner. We argue quite a bit. More maybe than average but that's irrelevant. I'm a large guy; 6'3" 325lbs. My wife 5'7" 135lbs. We were in an argument yesterday in which she became very audible. She's naturally a vocal person anyway but enough to where the neighbors took notice. The result was a glass of water ended up on me allegedly having been thrown onto me and a broom was broken on a poster in the garage. She never laid a finger on me, but those awesome neighbors told police she was beating me even though I have no marks. She was ultimately arrested for domestic battery for the water as I was told after being lied to by the police saying she wasn't. So I'm doubtful a jury will convict her given the fact the police misheard that it looked like she threw/dumped the water on me and my size compared to hers. We are not well off by any means and she has a state license which could be effected resulting in some serious financial implications if by miracle they actually win. Off the record as to not implicate anyone or hold you to any legal advise given; what can I do to destroy the prosecutions case before she is even arraigned. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to see this disappear.
