Today’s Question Of The Day Can foreigner sue as the plaintiff In Small Claims Court

Dear Skay,

Your blog helps tons of people. Now I have this specific scenario to ask your expert help.

I had a friend, a China citizen, planned to visit CA for 2 weeks, and I found this furnished Apt for rent in Craiger’s list. So we initiated the contact and agreed to pay half of the renting fee as deposit, which totaled USD 1,300.00

Then about 4 days later after they received the money, they asked for the rest of the money, stating they need cleaning and buy stuff.

So my friend and I changed our mind, sending them cancellation letter (which is allowed per our rental contract, as long as it is 3 days ahead of the 1st day of rent). Nothing happened.

Now seems filing for Small Claim is our only choice to get our deposit back. Is that right? if so, can he, a foreigner file with CA Superior Court?

Much appreciated,

Rong

Hello Rong, Thanks so much for your QOTD on small claims court. This is a very great question. You are entitled to get your money back and the question is yes you both can sue. Is your friend still out of the county? Did you give the money to this place yourself and how did you pay? I would get the ball going on this case ASAP. Don’t wait in case they move or try to avoid service. Call my office for details and I can answers any questions you have or send me an email. I responded to your email today. You both have the right to sue in California. Usually you sue where the defendant lives or does business. You both need to be listed on the claim. Have you sent a letter or demand or call or text this person that you want your money back. be careful on craigslist a lot of scams on there, many scammer make a great website bad. So you always want to confirm information when finding a place, signing a contract and such.

I hope this answers your question of the day on can foreigner sue as the plaintiff In Small Claims Court.

Today’s Question Of The Day On Small Claims Court. What Is An Amended Small Claims ?

Today’s question of the day come from Kiara P. Skay/SK can you please tell me what is the amended claim and how do you even do one. Love your Question of the days on #Small Claims. I want to say I follow you and want to say I am very happy to see your press release that you won the bad guys crazy how someone took your name hope they are sitting in jail. I will be calling your office if my husband and I cannot figure out how to do this. He called some other company he didn’t hear the EZ part of small claims and they were rude to him all about the money. So thankful for your questions of the day, your demand letter tips were so freaking awesome BTW. I look forward to seeing my question use as one of your questions of the day on small claims court, you are so awesome and so helpful thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. Please post this on your website and Facebook so I can see it. Thank you Kiara Peterson
Hi Kiara, thank you for your #QOTD on #SmallClaims and thank you for the following it means a lot to me, it really does. I am very happy the nightmare over with the Fake company that stole our name. We got our federal court order and it did not come cheap. People that actually do not read the press release do not understand what happen in less they were a victim of EZ Small Claim. It was a very stressful time and happy it over and business is great again and I am happy to do my QOTD to help people like you and your husband.
So Kiara, there are a few reasons why you would want and need to amend a claim. Before the hearing, a plaintiff (or a defendant who filed a counterclaim) in the small claims case may ask to change their claim after filing. The plaintiff can change the Plaintiff’s Claim, and the defendant can change the Defendant’s Claim, if they have one on you. These claims are always heard the same time in small claims court in California some reasons to change your claim may be as followed: You learned the correct name of the plaintiff or defendant after you filed your #smallclaim; you want to change what you asked for in your #smallclaim. You decided you don’t want to sue one of the parties anymore and dismiss them off, or want to sue another party. Changing the name of a person or business listed on the claim. It always important if you do not know what you are doing you can hire someone that knowns the #smallclaims court system. At my office we know how each court house works and it’s important to know what court does what so you do not waste more time and money. Each court makes their own rules and no two courts are the same and it is overwhelming for anyone that doesn’t know this, so if you get overwhelmed call my office at (909) 986-0883.
If your #smallclaims already has been served to the defendants, fill out a: Request to Amend Party Name before Hearing Form SC-114, File the form SC-114 with the court clerk.
Mail or personally deliver a copy of your Form SC-114, to all of the other parties in your case. They must be re-served. Sending a process server that license and bonded is best, mailing is the worst form of service of process and not reliable we do not do mailings we always send a live process server out, if you hire a process server that is license and boned your fees are added on top of judgement if you win your case meaning you get them back. Be careful many companies will charge you $75.00 for mailing a serve so always ask if you do not use us. Trust is important in who you hire.
Keep in mind, another approach would be simply to ask the judge to amend the name at your hearing. (See Code of Civil Procedure, Section 116.560(b)) If your claim has NOT been served simply amend your claim form: Making changes using an “amended” claim form if you want to change what you asked for in your claim, decided you don’t want to sue one of the parties anymore, or want to sue another party.
Get a new copy of the claim form: Plaintiff’s claim or Defendant’s Claim and ORDER to Go to Small Claims Court, Write “Amended” on the cover page, above the title of the form. If possible, highlight “Amended” in yellow. Make the changes you need to make. Complete the remainder of the form like the first copy of your claim. Make as many copies as you need: one for you and one for each of the other people or businesses involved in the case. File the form with the court. There is no fee for filing. The clerk will file stamp the copies. Serve the smallclaims on all of the other people or businesses involved in the case. (If you already served a claim on any of the other parties in this case, and you then make any changes, you must re-serve everyone. It is always best to have a license and bonded process server serve your #smallclaims. If you use a company depending where the serve is they may be able to give you a lower rate for service a second time. Some court want you to make the changes using a “Declaration” form another way to tell the court that you want to change your claim in some way is to use a Declaration form. Get a copy of the Declaration form and fill in the form, briefly telling the court what you want to change on your claim and why. Some court want the whole claim redone each county and court is different. At my office we know in our heads what each court does because we do this daily.
Remember make as many copies as you need for you and for each of the other parties in the case. File the original Declaration with the court. Serve the Declaration form on all of the other parties in the case.
FYI: You may not use the clerk to serve a Declaration by certified mail.

I hope I answered your #QuestionOfTheDayOn #SmallClaimsCourt

Today’s Question of the day Can you sue for negligence in small claims court

Today’s #QuestionOfTheDay On #SmallClaimsCourt comes from Verletz A. can you sue for negligence in #SmallClaimsCourt and if so how much SK?

Thank you for your #QOTD on #SmallClaims #Court, I am not sure if you are referring to personal injury or property damage from a car accident so I’ll explain both to you and go into much detail as I can for you.

In a negligence case in which you suffer personal injury or property damage because of the defendant’s negligence, you may also be able to recover money for “conscious pain and suffering,” depending on how badly you were hurt, in addition to lost wages, medical expenses. Most of the time cases for personal injury are not heard in #SmallClaims court because small claims is money damages.

Establishing pain and suffering is a more difficult undertaking than establishing a cut-and-dried monetary “Money” claim. You must produce medical records and medical testimony as well as establish documents of how much pain you suffered as a result of the defendant’s negligence. Even than you still may not win your case as #SmallClaims court was designed to sue for money damages so it is hard to prove up pain and suffering in the small claims court system. For example in a auto accident case you can sue for property damages to your vehicle also if you missed work and medical expenses you can proof money loss for but just pain and suffering you can’t put a price tag, which why small claims court is not the place to sue for pain and suffering.

Truthfully, the only personal injury cases I have seen go into small claims court are those where the plaintiff doesn’t have a lawyer because:

· The plaintiff is a difficult client — to put it politely.

· The defendant’s liability is difficult to prove.

· The injuries to the plaintiff are so inconsequential that no lawyer wants to waste time taking the case.

Medical expenses, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket costs are easy to prove if you have the proper documentation, but loss of enjoyment of life and other similar damages are harder to evaluate and prove in a court of law in the #SmallClaims court system..

Can you sue in #SmallClaims for Loss of enjoyment of life? This is a whole another claim and court. A civil complaint for money is a separate complaint than physical or mental pain and suffering. It refers to any damages that result in the plaintiff being unable to participate in activities or pleasures of life as he could previously. For example, a person who is paralyzed after being hit by a drunk driver can claim loss of enjoyment of life because he can no longer play with his children and is bedridden and stuck in a wheelchair there equality of life is gone. Small Claims court is not the court to sue for loss of enjoyment of life in.

For instance, if a dog bites you, it’s normal to be afraid of dogs. Bringing that statement into court will only result in a minimal damage award, for instance the medical costs incurred and the monetary value of the scar resulting from the bite or the stitches you received any value money damages you can proof in reason to the judge from the dog biting you.

Is Your case as a result after a car accident?

Damage to personal property also has it own rules and amounts you can sue for. If your car is damaged in an accident, then the amount of damages is the cost of repairs. You aren’t getting a new car from the accident; you’re only getting the value of the car on the date of loss.

Several things can happen after a car accident:
· You accept the defendant’s insurance company’s estimate, and take the money it determines it will cost to have the car repaired. In this case, you do not need to involve the court. This is what insurance is for.

· You reject the insurance company’s estimate, pay for the repairs out-of-pocket, and take the defendant to small claims court for the difference. You reject the insurance company’s estimate but can’t afford to pay for the repairs until you collect from the defendant.

· The cost of repairs exceeds the value of the vehicle Personal property damage

Trying to prove the value of old items of personal property is difficult. What you paid for it is not the measure of damages, nor is what it costs today to replace it. If you have a great deal of personal property damaged, it pays to hire an insurance adjuster to prepare a statement as to the value of the property on the date of loss, called actual cash value.

I hope I was able to answer your question. Small Claims court rules and laws are much different than most thing and the court room is not like judge Judy. It important to hire someone who knows what they are doing because each court in California the rules and regulations are much different in each court.

Today’s Question Of The Day On Small Claims Court : Can you suspend someone’s driver’s license if they don’t pay a small claims judgment?

Can you suspend someone’s driver’s license if they don’t pay a small claims judgment?

SK, Can you suspend someone’s driver’s license if they don’t pay a small claims judgment? Someone who me over $2,000 and was told I could suspend the her license HELP! What does judgment mean? Do I worn her with a letter of demand or no?

Daniel R
Hello Daniel, Thank you for your question. Yes If your Judgment is for an automobile accident, you can have the Defendant’s driver license suspended to force payment.
When you win a small claims case, the money the court awards you is called the Judgment. You are the Judgment Creditor. The person who owes you money is the Judgment Debtor. I will explain a bit more below for you!
SK
When can I have a driver license suspended?
If your judgment is for an automobile accident on a California highway and the Judgment Debtor won’t pay, you can ask the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to suspend their California driver license.

Steps to take:
To suspend the Judgment Debtor’s driver’s license, take the following steps:

· Get the proper form at your local DMV or let us help you.

· Please keep in mind below:

· If your judgment is for $750 or less and has remained unpaid for 90 days, the DMV can suspend the license up to 90 days. This only applies to the actual driver of the vehicle and not the registered owner.

· If your judgment is more than $750 and has remained unpaid for 60 days, the DMV can suspend the license of both the driver and registered owner for up to six years. Some exceptions may apply. Speak to a Small Claims Advisor for details or call my office and we can assist you.

· Fill out the form, take it to the Small Claims Clerk’s Office and have them certify the form.

· Request a certified copy of the Notice of Entry of Judgment from the clerk. Pay the fee.

· Mail the completed DMV form and the Notice of Entry of Judgment form to:

If your judgment is for $750 or less and has remained unpaid for 90 days, the DMV can suspend the license up to 90 days. This only applies to the actual driver of the vehicle and not the registered owner.

If your judgment is more than $750 and has remained unpaid for 60 days, the DMV can suspend the license of both the driver and registered owner for up to six years. Some exceptions may apply. Speak to a Small Claims Advisor for details or call our offer for details.

DMV will give the Judgment Debtor a limited amount of time to pay the judgment. If you are not paid, the DMV will suspend the Judgment Debtor’s driver license for the time period listed above.
When you been paid , What do I do now?

After you are paid, take the following steps to remove the suspension:

· Get a certified copy of the Satisfaction of Judgment from the Small Claims Court Clerk and pay the fee.

· Mail the certified copy to the Judgment Debtor so they can remove the suspension.

For the defendant the Judgment Debtor. How do they get my license back?

· Pay the judgment in full

· Have the Judge grant you court-ordered installment payments.

· At the time of the accident the Judgment Debtor had enough insurance coverage to satisfy the judgment.

· If the Judgment Creditor fails to file the Satisfaction of Judgment.

You must pay a fee to DMV and provide proof of insurance to have your license reissued. The Notice of Suspension you receive should list this fee. You can warn her with a demand letter letting her know if she does not pay the judgment or make arrangements for court order payments she will get her license suspended

There more involved in this and it can be overwhelming so it’s best to hire someone that know what they are doing.

If you need help please contact my office and for a fee we can gladly assist you.

Kindest Regards,

Today Question Of The Day Is It Important To Have A Written Contract .

Hello SK, I was wondering why it is important to have a contract or not? Is a verbal agreement okay? I was unable to get the money my wife paid for services. We believed we are entitled to get our money back. Unfortunately, she did not have a copy of the contract. If we were sued is a verbal agreement good enough. Thank you for your help. Your #QOTW are so awesome and wish you do them more often LOL. You’re just a wonderful advocate and the info and how you explain it make more since to me then the court websites. I was referred to you and was checking out your #SKQOTW and thought I would ask beforehand. Thanks SK you’re the best!

Hi Bobby, It’s important anytime to always have a written contract then a verbal. A written contact always holds up in court over a verbal contract.
Making a contract that is a written agreement vs. a verbal agreement is a huge difference and if it comes times to having to go to #SmallClaimsCourt it about what is in writing sometimes because it’s your word over someone else’s and you never know what the judge is thinking so get it in writing always. Contracts are important anytime to always read what you sign too. Anytime you are going too pay for a service or product, Always get a copy of any contract you sign. ALWAYS read the contract before you sign it!
If you are unsure ask what you are signing and have them explain it to you where you understand what your signing no questions is too stupid to ask. Without reading what you’re signing or getting a copy you fail to protect your financial interest, making life more difficult and expensive.
If you can afford to have one done by someone do your best on it. It doesn’t matter whether the contract is a formal one written in legal terms, handwritten on a piece of paper, or made verbally, in which case the oral contract should always be put into writing to protect everyone involved. If you sign it read it if you make a verbal agreement with someone or a business in which you pay money, and in return, the other person or business performs a service or gives you product, make sure you get a copy of the contract and any warranty plan to protect yourself create a folder and save it. If you need help writing a contract you can call my office and we can always help you.

I hope I answer your question for the week and if you need assistance please call my office at (909) 986-0883

Today’s Question Of The Week Is Do your Small Claims Yourself Or Hire US?

Today #QuestionOfTheWeekOnSmallClaimsCourt on #SKQOTW comes from Susie Woodland . Skay can you please tell me the difference as to why I should hire you or another company to handle my #SmallClaimsPaperwork or do it myself? If you can list the PROS and CONS of both that be great thank you. Love your questions of the week on small claims they are great keep up the great work and so thankful wish you had them more often. I finally got up enough nerve to email you to ask my own lol.
Thanks Susie Woodland

Hi Susie, This is a very good question and I am glad you asked this as this is a question we are asked over the phone daily. I would be more then happy to answer.
Doing your small claims yourself can be hard, I am not going to lie. It’s important to fill out your documents correctly. If you don’t know what you’re doing it can turn into a mess and cost more money in the long run. Why can’t I just do it myself most people think? The small claims laws and small claim processes, the court procedures, what forms are needed, and how to complete the forms correctly are all huge parts of why it is helpful to have professionals handle your paperwork. If you have a (LDL) Legal Document Assistance professionally prepare your small claims documents we know what we are doing as this is our job, we handle small claims lawsuits on a daily basis. We know the ins and out of the court system and with each court in California not being the same its important to have your small claims done correctly and filed in the correct venue. I will list the Pros and Cons of doing it yourself as well of the Pros and Cons of hiring us EZ Small Claims or doing your small claims . I can’t make the same guarantees for other companies as I do not work for them. EZ Small Claims is a division of Yale Attorney Service that my father started in 1984. We are a family owned and operated business. Everyone here is family that works for our company we like to keep those family values and knowing our clients by name not a order number. The choice is really up to you and if you have the time to handle how much time go into the paperwork, going to the court, finding a server, and trying to prepare your case on your own is hard. Below is the list I am going to give you of the Pro’s and Cons to both.

Doing your small claims yourself:

THE PROS

•You can save money by doing the documents yourself if you know how to do them and not have to pay someone to type and file them and stand in line. you can save some money on cost.

•You don’t have to pay someone to stand in line and can do it yourself. You pay the parking yourself and don’t have to worry as you know you’re handling it and saving money.

• You don’t have to call or message our office and you know you did it .

Cons of doing it yourself:

• You have to find parking and some courts charge for parking.

• You have to go through the metal detector find your department then wait in a long line even before getting to the line where the clerk is.

• You have to stand in a very long line that doesn’t move and the wait time can be 2-6 hours or more depending how busy the courthouse is that day.

•If you make a mistake you have to go to the end of the line and start over again without help.

•The clerk cannot help you with filling out your small claims documents if you make a mistake you’re on your own.

• The clerk cannot give legal advice on how to fill out your small claims correctly which can leave you upset angry and in tears and want to give up and say screw it and walk out, we have seen it often and happens more then you think.

•You can spend your entire day at the courthouse on your own time.

•If you fill out your documents wrong or list the defendant’s wrong you case can get rejected and or dismissed before or the day of court and you would have to start all over, meaning you have to pay the filing fees and looking for a process server to reserve your claim and waste more of your own time and money on the lawsuit you are working so hard to get the money back from. If you work this is very hard.

•You have no one to guide or assist you with doing the documents and each court has different rules and regulations that must be followed and if you don’t you could jeopardize your case.

•You have to find someone or a process server and pay them to serve your papers and type and file your proof of service(s)

• All documents have a time frame and must be done and log in with the court by certain days or your case will be dismissed.

Hiring EZ Small Claims to assist you with your small claims
PROS
• We professionally prepare all of the documents for your small claims court case by typing them all for you taking the stress and burden off you .

• We conduct name searches with the county records office and in our database to make sure the defendants are listed correctly on your small claims.

• We file your claim with the appropriate California court this is very important and many people who file on their own file in the wrong court.

• We will professionally serve the defendant (the person or entity that you are suing) with all necessary court documents.

•Our process servers are license and bonded by the state.

• We type and file proof(s) of service with the court after the defendant(s) have been successfully served for you.

•We are here for questions and concerns during your entire claims process if needed.

•When requested we will send you a small claims pointers packet to help you to know what to expect when going to court.

•We are here for ongoing customer care and support before your court date during the whole process to answer and address your needs. .

•We handle all the hard work for you, by typing, filing, serving, and filing the proof of service all for you. We take the stress and worry off you by handling it for you. This means you have more time in the day to do what is most important to you and let someone else handle and worry about the important dates.

• We will remind you of your court date and time and send you all your documents again in case you lose them.

• You have the assurance that your case is being handled professionally.

• At EZ Small Claims We help you from start to finish and are here every step of the way for you. From the start to finish we are here for you.

CONS
Hiring EZ Small Claims to assist you with your small claims.

•Now you do have to pay a document preparation fee of $100.00 for us to type and file your small claim, but I don’t see this as a con, we do so much more that goes along with the document preparation fee and you really get more bang for your buck as we go the extra mile for our clients.
We know our clients by name and not a order number. You filing fee and process serving fee is refundable added on top of the judgment so you are only actually paying $100.00 to EZ Small Claims.

Many companies are out there can assist your with your small claims lawsuit, but I like to say at EZ Small Claims we go above and beyond for our clients and give you the time to answers your questions, concerns, and help you prepare for court at no added cost.
If your case is a local Southern California case we are fast and the turnaround time is fast compare to other companies out there that it can take weeks to over a month or two to get a copy of your filed small claims back in less you pay rush fee’s. Even with Northern California we still have your documents back faster than any other leading company out there.

It is your choice what you like to do as far as filing your small claims yourself or hire a company to assist you. At EZ Small Claims we are rated A+ with the BBB and have a 5 star rating on Facebook and Google.

Good question of the day George, and I would be more then happy to answer this for you! Process Serving is not an easy job, there are benefits’ with using us ( A private Process Server) or having the sheriff serve your legal documents .

Having the Sheriff serve your paperwork
PRO’S

– If they cannot get it personally served, they will charge you again after the 3td attempt and you end up paying more.
-If they can NOT serve it after 3 attempts than your screwed and have to pay to have it reserved.

Having us / Private Process Server Serve Your Small Claims

– The cost is $65.00 for unlimited attempts on defendant if service is in southern California , $85.00 if Northern California

I thought I could learn the secrets of his trade and be a Millionaire! I know as I write this that sounds stupid but he really sold me on this .

Jackie Anderson
Hello Jackie , Thank you for your #QuestionOfTheDayOnSmallClaimsCourt this is a great question for my #QuestionOfTheDayOnSmallClaimsCourt. I always love new questions I have not answered and this is one of them.

Demand Letters ( SK Tips On Demand Letters)

#EZSmallClaims #DemandLetters

Many of you ask for my tips on how to write a demand letter , so here they are by request.

How Do You Ask For Payment Before Taking Someone To Small Claims Court !

Small claims cases require that you ask the other side for payment before you go to court (unless there is a good reason why you cannot). You can ask in person, by phone, or in writing. You will have to tell the court you did this and how on your court forms.
If you decide to ask for payment in writing, you can write a demand letter. A demand letter is a short, clear letter demanding payment. Bring a copy of it to your court hearing to show the judge. You can also attach it to your court papers.

Often, a demand letter will be all you need to resolve your dispute. Even if the person or business that owes you money knows about the problem, a firm and strong request in a letter that lays out the reasons why they owe you money and says that if your issue is not satisfied you plan to go to small claims court can have a big effect. They realize you are serious about the case and intend to spend time and energy pursuing it. Sometimes when you have a problem with a business, a demand letter can bring the problem to the attention of the owner who may not have known about your dispute because the manager never told him or her. This happen more often then you would think !

HELP WRITING A DEMAND LETTER
There are different types of demand letters and at EZ Small Claims we can assist with a demand letter but I will share some important facts about writing one yourself ! You can send a demand letter to a person or business to ask for your money ! Make your demand clear and state why they owe you the money and if they don’t resolve this you will file a small claims lawsuit against them !

Demand letter to Your Landlord Asking for the Return of Your Security Deposit

A landlord has 3 weeks after you move out to return your security deposit or send you a itemized invoice for any amount held for damages ! If you landlord fails to give you back your deposit within the time frame I suggest you write a demand letter. After you have ask for the money and if they still refuse your only choice is small claims court .

Type your letter. If you don’t have a computer or typewriter, try to get access to one a family or friend. Do not hand write your demand letter ! Their are public libraries have computers that you can use for free or low cost ! If you don’t have access we can assist you with this .

Review the main facts of the dispute. At first it may seem a bit odd to outline these details; after all, your opponent knows the story. But remember–if you end up in court, the letter will be read by a judge, and you want the judge to understand what happened. Now is a good chance to make a record not only of the initial dispute, but of any subsequent phone conversations, unanswered calls, or inappropriate conduct by the defendant in this letter .

Be polite. Avoid personally attacking your adversary (even one who deserves it). The more you attack, the more you invite the other side to respond in a similarly angry vein. Get your point across without attacking them .

Write the letter with the direct goal in mind
. The letter should encourage your opponent to make a business like decision of the dispute and raise such questions as:

-What are my risks of losing?
-How much time will a defense take?
-Do I want the dispute to be decided in public?
-Ask for exactly what you want. For example, if you want $500.00 ask for it (or possibly a little more to allow some negotiating room). Explain how you arrived at this figure. And be sure to set a deadline. One week is usually best; anything longer and your opponent has less motivation to deal with you right away. Supply the actual date, to remove any doubt.

End your letter by stating you will promptly pursue your legal remedies if your demand is not met. Remind the defendant that a court judgment could adversely affect his or her credit rating.

Make sure you make and keep copies of everything you send . Make a copy of each letter before you send it, and keep a copy of the post office receipts (use certified mail, return receipt requested). Keep all correspondence from your adversary, also.

Please use certified mailing. Send the demand letter via certified mail with a return receipt requested back to you. If you do end up in small claims court, you can use the return receipt to counter any claim that your opponent didn’t receive the demand letter.
