Did complete my 2 yr. Drug court program for my felony probation but I still had fines to pay but found out I had the controlled buy done on me and I ran because I was scared I would go away for a long time and not see my family. How long will I get in prison if I go back and turn myself in I have... Read more »
You will be sentenced on your probation violation, with your original sentencing guidelines used for a good estimate. Additionally, you are likely facing a new charge, and points will be assessed for picking up this new charge while on probation in the sentencing guidelines. Without knowing more...Read more »

I am having severe back pain and some other issues I have written out paperwork of my doctor approving this leave. The woman that I am working with as my case manager is telling me that is not good enough I am going to physical therapy twice a week for it.
Currently the MI website says "Your application for this case is being processed. The Ask a Question feature will become available to you once the application reaches the Prosecuting Attorney." How do I find out what is going on? How long does it take? Getting very low on funds. Any help is... Read more »
property taxes that are being assessed for the past 3 years since the state denied his homestead exemption on his residence. He is married and his wife and he have lived in separate homes the past 3 years. He claims that I should have known to file them each "married filing separately" in order... Read more »
Doubtful, but you should really check with your insurance carrier and any ethics or licensing board to whom you have reporting obligations. Now if the client told you he specifically wanted to file married filing separately, and you didn't do that, that may lead to a different outcome.
Unlikely. You do have Internet access - not exactly blazing fast Internet. You can buy your own, but it would be on your own dime. Unless the landlord made some affirmative assurances about the Internet (i.e. "always on", or a certain speed), there's not much that can be done.
There is no time requirement, but when making an equitable division of assets (and debts), we're looking toward what is considered the marital estate - meaning anything acquired or accumulated during the marriage. In the case of a retirement account, what may be relevant is what contributions were...Read more »
I have a friend that was a witness to a fire that caused several deaths in his previous apartment building. The attorney for the building has been reaching out to him through calls, text and email to depose. My friend just started a new job & the attorney contacted his new employer this morning. Is...

First question is why is he avoiding deposition? It sounds like he is vital to the case and not the plaintiff or defendant. I would imagine the attorney would be very open to being as accommodating as necessary to secure the testimony, and is not out to make your friend's life difficult....Read more »
Do you have anything documenting the agreement? Like a cancelled check she cashed? You would likely need to file a small claims action. But even if you win, all you are going to get is a judgment - which is little more than a piece of paper that says she legally owes you money.
I was going after a truck, and i used the passing lane to over take the truck. After passing through, i started to lower the speed under the speed limits. After sever miles, i noticed the police car with light, i don't know they are aiming at me and i didn't hear any police car honking. Then i... Read more »
The facts being as you described, I would be surprised to find a prosecutor willing to dismiss the charge, or a jury able to find that you did not have intent to elude after traveling several miles even at lower speeds. Only a local lawyer able to go through all the evidence against you can give...Read more »
I know this answer comes likely after your husband's prelim. But I suspect there is much more to this story. That your husband has a no contact order with you as part of his bond conditions tells me that at least the court believes you may be more than a witness, but a victim in some regard....Read more »
A third party brought a judgment (not sure when) Judgement was $5000 and my wages was just garnished for a 19 year old judgement for $20,000. We have not heard anything since we agreed on $5,000 until his wages where just now garnished from another 3rd party who bought the judgement. The real funny... Read more »
With interest and costs, it's quite easy to get from $5,000 to $20,000 over nearly 20 years. Did you complete the terms of the settlement agreement? If so, that you should take that to the court with proof. Often times, a settlement agreement early on would say something like "defendant agrees to...Read more »
I was told that if we don’t settle on an agreement I’m not going to get the divorce until we go through trials until we get the Dowry out of the way. I’m just worried is it even guaranteed I’ll even get it? Or even worth the wait? What do you think I should do?
Who is advising you about dowry? He or she may be surprised to know that dowry went away in Michigan back in 2017. Dowry was a 1/3 life estate interest in the husband's real estate. And I'm not sure, really, what implication dowry would have now in a divorce proceeding. The answer to that question...Read more »
My son moved with me 5 years ago from Michigan to Wisconsin and it was court approved. Since living in WI he has made great friends, plays in sports he never did before, and has great grades in school. Back in December of 2018, my son told an older cousin of his back in Michigan that he wanted to... Read more »
This being in the midst of a school year, I doubt a judge would order a change at this point. However, your son is 15, old enough and hopefully mature enough for a judge to take his opinion seriously. If he wants to move back to Michigan, and can articulate valid reasons (besides "Dad lets me party...Read more »
