My ex divorced me by lying to the Jamaica Court and now I need child support
I found out that the man I married and live with used a paralegal to help him to get a divorce. When I checked the documents he submitted, I learnt from an attorney that an 'affidavit of diligent search' was submitted, although we live together with our five children. He went up to Canada recently and is now getting ready to get married to a Jamaican over there. I am not suprised he went through with the divorce behind my back. I am left with the children and I need to get child support, but I dont have the money required to go back to that lawyer who checked up on the file. I am just now trying to get a little work. So I need to know the ways you and your team can help me, because I definitely do not want to use any Legal aid clinic.

Three Things You Should Know about Private Lenders, Before You Borrow

The Jamaican bailiff served one of two Defendants, can I serve the other here in USA?
Before I left Jamaica, I filed a claim at the Resident Magistrate's court. The claim is for two persons to appear in Court in February.

Please clarify how to date my notice to the tenant in Jamaica
I served a notice on a tenant that my wife brought into my property. The court said it was bad and wrote another one by filling in the little forms that you buy in the bookstore. When I went to take out the summons, another court staff worker told me the second notice was bad because of the dates. Now that's two months gone already, and I cant just pick up plane tickets to travel back and forth. Meantime this man is in my house being a nuisance. The rent is due on the first of the month, and the last notice was written to expire on the first of January. Please tell me what to write.
Will the Jamaica court throw the old man in jail for outstanding rent paid on his behalf?
Before we left Jamaica we arranged for an entity who takes care of poor people to pay an aged man's rent. They were late three times. On the fourth time they were late, the landlord took the aged man to court and won the case. Actually I am told that the order was made in default, because he wasnt there.
The problem is the entity has not paid the money over as yet because they are government-operated and they too have issues. The court however sent the man a judgement summons that he got. Apparently the date that he got as the deadline to pay up has passed and he is worried.
I need to check if the agent filed my papers at Resident Magistrate Court
In late Summer I visited the Resident Magistrate court downtown, in Jamaica, and I met a young man as I was going in who offered to put my papers in for me. I gave him $15,000 to write a notice, do some paperwork and serve it. I am back in England and my brother who went to the property tells me that no notice or summons was served. He also told me that he went to the court and saw the young man who showed him papers that a summons was served on the tenant I am trying to get out of my house.

The other owner of my property is trying to take over my Jamaica property? HELP!
I heard recently that a woman is trying to take over my house. I heard it all from the person who she actually rented the property to. Note I did not give this woman permission to rent my house in the first place. We happen to be owners as tenants in common of the property, but at no time did I tell her she could go into my side and rent my property. Now I am hearing that she has a tenant who she acquired and evicted all without my knowledge. I sent someone to the property with the extenant after she contacted me and was told that after she kicked out the young woman she destroyed parts of my house, such as wiring, the bathroom. I understand that even the court was involved even though the tenant this woman evicted never got a notice, and never went to court before a judge.

Should my student niece in Jamaica now pay electricity after two months at rented room?
I have my niece renting a half room for $15,000 near a college in Kingston as she is a student there. Her roommate pays $15,000 also. They have been there since September and they have never paid electricity or water bills based on their arrangements with the landlord. My niece is now calling me to tell me that the landlord wants she and her roommate to pay the electricity bills. My niece says every month since she started living there, he has been coming to she and her roommate for money to clear the bills.
The bill is almost $4,000 but I think this is crazy as in the first place $30,000 is way too high for that tiny room, and they are students. What is going on in Jamaica? Can you assist me in finding another place for them to live with reasonable pricing?
We need our grandparents land from the Crown I am really hoping you can help me (or point me in the right direction to get some help) and my family with our enquiry regarding claiming back land from the crown.

Could a search be carried out by name only? We know their names and date of birth and death, can anybody help us. I would of though the land agency would have names of all land owners without having to know or have land title or Volume or Folio number.
