  • The home I rented went into foreclosure and was sold, unbeknownst to me or to the property management company (manager was not the owner). I made 2 rental payments to the management company during the time between the home being sold and us becoming aware of it. I made a CFK agreement with the new owner and requested my deposit, as well as the 2 rental payments back from the manager. They told me to give them a key and they would return my deposit, even though I made it clear I was not moving out. I returned my key and they refused to return my deposit or payments. Do I have any recourse?
  • I need to modify the visitation for my 12 year old daughter as she claims her dad drinks & drives with her during his visitation. She still loves him and wants to see him, but not stay as she does not feel safe. Can I file in a different venue? How easy is it to get a venue change?
  • The article only mentions expumgement and setting aside criminal convictions. What about seaing the record so I do not have to put it on job apps if asked. This is really effective me in my life.
