The attorney must be sure the Petition is correct and if you left it off, then technically it is perjury. The Attorney could get employed by the Trustee if the Trustee wants him or her to be, so she could get an additional fee.

Q: are there any points associated to the violation of traffic regulation section 39:3A-1?

We got a ticket a couple of days ago related to 39:3A-1 (Television screen visible to driver) and was wondering if there were any points related to this violation. The ticket says non-payable offense so will go to the court but we were not sure if there were points that we need to clear up.

There is a movement to try and make this a point violation along the lines of a distracted driving offense. Apologize to the Court, and try and get out of there with the lowest... Read more »
