I was ticketed through the mail in March of 2020, I contested it, received an initial court date in January of 2021. The DJ stated that she would need the officer who actually ticketed me on resubmitted my court date, telling me it would be a few weeks. My court is set for Nov 30th and I am... Read more »
I was plead guilty at the court hearing today. My question is, do I have to pay the fines or file for an appeal? I don't know if it will show on my record. I have a driver's learner permit from Maryland but the incident happened here in Pennsylvania.
I am establishing a legal entity in the United States in the state of Wyoming. In the Operating Agreement, I need to include information about the partners, which includes the place of residence. For an American, I have to include the street, city,... Read more »
Be considered mail tampering. I have received the letter 1444c three times to my forwarded address but they returned the payment for the notice three times they know what they are doing and I want to know if I could perhaps file a complaint against that post office or whoever is in charge ect.
No. They are not supposed to forward certain things. You need to be sure that the IRS and the government have your proper address. Discuss this with your Congressperson--they have information on how you can get your payments.
I was cited "failed to drive within a single lane and or movement from lane was not made safely" by a state trooper. I plead not guilty to that citation in July. Today I receive notice that my license will be suspended tomorrow due to failing to respond to the same citation and lists the... Read more »
The officers in question, while preparing the body for transport to the medical examiner, dragged the man down the stairs and his girlfriend watched as he made impact upon each stair, they then pretended to take care once they noticed they were in our line of sight. One officer in particular was... Read more »
I have contacted him 3 times this past week trying to get the rest of my stuff and he keeps telling me I can't come out to get it. I have several text messages with him arguing with me. I don't want a fight; just want my stuff.
I have pictures of the sidewalk and my face and leg where I was injured. And to be honest I just wanted them to fix my phone and iPad that broke when I fell. But the lady told me to get my lawyer to call there’s. I went to take pictures a week later. I couldn’t stop shaking and my left eye has... Read more »
If you haven't already, go see a doctor. As far as the sidewalk, in Pennsylvania it's a split responsibility between the town and the owner of the property (if it's not the town). Contact an attorney who is a member of the Pennsyvlania Assn for Justice in the town. They give free...Read more »
I am trying to appeal and/or reconsider three Common Pleas Court rulings dated September 20th 2021 because the judge previously granted a continuance but seemingly spontaneously ruled on the three issues anyway. Look at the attached docket. Even assuming some other mistake,... Read more »
I'm on the tiered assistance program (TAP) with the Philadelphia water department. I've got a set bill but a past balance that's put on hold while I'm on it. They forgive an amount after your pay 15 times. My landlords legal dept just sent me an email saying if I don't pay... Read more »
I’ve been saving for 3 few months but it’s not easy when I pay all the bills, the house is paid off so there is no rent just condo fees. My uncle just sent me a letter giving me 30 days to leave or his team will take action to remove me. I’m not sure what to do or if I have any rights.
"lost the will" doesn't cut it. See if an estate has been opened. The uncle can't just act regardless. You need to file a claim as a potential heir with the register of wills for whichever county you are in. You'd want to check to see if an estate has been opened. If it was...Read more »
A big problem as Pennsylvania doesn't recognize common law marriage. Also, that wouldn't even apply if they didn't hold themselves out as husband and wife. In whose name is the property? If it's in the partner's name, the property goes to his estate.
The appeal trial was in the Court of Common Pleas in Montgomery County, PA, held on Sep. 9, 2021. The arresting officer was excused from the trial. He was supposed to be there according to the ADA, but I found out he would not be there midway through the trial. The judge would not continue the... Read more »
Hire a competent PA attorney to advise and draft a Deed. A simple Joint Life Estates/Remainder Deed might be appropriate here. Or a very good lawyer could specify Executory Interests, Conditions or even a Reverter, granting and habendum clauses. Remember the executed Deed takes effect now, not...Read more »
Yes, you can make those arrangements by specific provisions in your will. One way is to give what is called a life estate in the property, which gives your boyfriend control of the property until his death, or until he no longer wants it.
There are other ways, using testamentary trusts,...Read more »
If you are unable to afford retaining an attorney, you may request a court-appointed attorney through the court you are facing charges at. While you do not get to choose your court-appointed attorney, it is better than having no legal representation in a criminal proceeding. Generally, there will...Read more »
