So you’ve found a great deal online for your family vacation hotel and you booked it. The hours of searching for the perfect spot with the best price paid off, and now you have a great hotel. All that would be great but what happens when you need to cancel or make alterations to the reservation? Most hotels either charge a healthy deposit up-front or they will charge your credit card if you cancel within a certain number of days. The best way to prevent be charged or having a deposit held is to write a Hotel Reservation Cancellation letter.
A child support agreement letter can either be written by one of the divorcing parents, signed by the other and a witness, or it can be written by a third-party mediator such as a lawyer who will also sign the letter. The arrangements for support of any children will be decided by the judge during the divorce proceedings. However, some people may not want to go through the court and are willing to voluntarily pay child support and agree to an amount. If this is the case, the parents need to follow certain state legal requirements and get the agreement approved by a judge. If this isn’t done, there will be little or no recourse later if disagreements arise.
If a student receives a lower grade that he or she believes is unfair, they can write a grade appeal letter to the professor, dean of the college or an appeals board requesting that the grade be raised. If an exam or course was graded very severely by a professor, and this standard was applied to every student in the class, a grade change will not usually be considered. Even if a professor is antagonistic towards a student, it must be proved that the antagonistic attitude resulted in a lower grade. If the student has a doubt or concern that they deserved a higher grade, but they do not know how to go forward, their best option is to talk with the chairperson of their school or college’s Grade Appeals Committee or someone in the Dean of Student’s Office.
Small-claims court has jurisdiction over civil cases that rise between private litigants. The rules vary from state to state, but there is usually a monetary limit from $2,500 - $25,000 because small-claims courts don’t involve large amounts of money. They are mainly for the collection of small debts and for evictions and other problems between tenants and landlords. People who sue in a small-claims court generally waive the right to claim more that the court can award. Most people try to settle their disputes in other ways, outside of court, before filing a case. For example, arbitration by a third party is often used. However, the decision of an arbitrator cannot be appealed but a small-claims judgment can. In most small-claims courts, the first step is for the person to write a demand letter for the amount that is owed.
Reinstatement letters are written for several reasons, including when an employee wants to be reinstated to a job or when a student wants to be reinstated for financial aid that they lost for some reason.
