I presume that you may be a subcontractor and do not have a contract. That is still ok because you can tsity and show pictures of the work performed. If the party has money or assets, i would file a lawsuit. the question is how much money is at issue?
Generally, if you have filed a claim, and are receiving temp disability pay, then you should not speak with your employer. However, I presume you do not have a lawyer at this point. Sometimes the insurance nurse or caseworker may want to speak with you about your injury before determining a...View More

You may not be charged with a crime, but you may be taken into custody until the defendant is located. Also, if the U.S. Attorney believes and can prove it to a grand jury you could be charged as an accessory to the the absentia.

My husband is one of the true innocent. We have filed 2 post convictions and a habeus corpus over the years. The last was turned down because of procedural bars.He has been in for over 19 years.. Another question..Is there any way to have his sentence changed ?
First I applaud you for your effort not to give up. There are a couple of post conviction remedies such as a 2241 and a 2252 action. Both take time to get the information and can be a longshot. However, all cases deserve review. I am not sure if your husband pled guilty or had a trial. that...View More
First thank you for taking this step. However, there is much needed information to answer your question. Is he still in jail, what was the charge? did he have a trial or enter a guilty plea? did he appeal his conviction?
if you have any of this information and would like to discuss,...View More
by giving him money. He resorted to robbing someone using a toy gun. I put up property to get him out of jail. He is still doing the drug, lying etc. My question is can I revoke the bond & have him put back in jail without losing my property?
Good for you. Sometimes tough love is hard. Yes, if you put up a property bond, you may go to the court and ask that it be removed. I have had this happen on a couple of cases where a parent put up a cash bond and beleived the child might leave the jurisdiction.

My mother saw a divorce attorney 2 months ago and he said she was screwed because she has always been the "breadwinner" and made more than him. Everything is also in her name. She has worked so hard for everything and has a 16 year old daughter. Will she still lose 50%? Can the fact that... View More
I am not if your mom is screwed and I would never tell a client that unless it was true. That being said, it depends non what your father made as income. Your mom may be able to show the court abuse. In Alabama, after ten years, a spouse is entitled to half of a retirement account, unless your...View More
