Certain legal questions come up very often. To help folks easily find answers to these common questions, the library has collected the answers to many of the frequently asked legal questions that we receive. In addition to adding many new questions and answers, our FAQ now has a search function!
While we are unable to provide legal advice or address your specific situation, the information we do provide may help answer your question. Most of the questions we feature deal with consumer issues — for example:
- Do I have 3 days to return a purchase or cancel a contract in Texas?
- Debt collectors keep calling me. What can I do?
- Can gift cards expire?
We also answer questions relating to criminal law, family law, and other miscellaneous topics. If you find that your question is not addressed on our frequently asked legal questions page, please don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian for assistance!
