Be prepared for a frustrating and expensive experience. Liquor licenses for nightclubs are very much dependent on local control. Is the area you're intending to open friendly to having a nightclub? As just as hard as nightclub liquor licenses can be to get, they are easily lost. Too many police...Read more »
The process of navigating through the driver license restoration process is complex enough that you would be well served to retain an attorney. You may, for instance, be entitled to go directly to the circuit court judge, or you may need to reapply through the secretary of state - an attorney could...Read more »
I was not convicted. I was given a deal through HYTA. 6 months probation. When I do a background check, it comes up clean. But I'm applying for a job where I have to be fingerprinted if I am hired. Will the arrest show up in the fingerprint report?
The wonderful thing about HYTA is that upon successful completion, you don't have a criminal conviction, and so you may rightfully report no convictions, and it shouldn't show up on background checks as a conviction. That said, you may have an arrest record, which is an indication that you've been...Read more »
If she has supervised visits, quite frankly I don't see her being in a very good position to push for anything from the court. Of course she can make the argument that you shouldn't be around during her parenting time. And because you are not legally married, I think a judge would consider her...Read more »
I have a 6 mo th old and filed for child support in March and got a hearing for July. But the other mother filed last week and has a hearing next Monday. Her daughter is older that my son. So I am wondering if she will end up getting more even though I filed first.
It doesn't matter. The child support formula applicable in all cases will account for other support cases. But the actual amount owed in any case is determined by the factors present in each case, specifically your income, his income, the parenting time arrangement, and any child care of health...Read more »

Yes, the attorney can obtain a writ of eviction. Your appeal was dismissed, and so the judgment issued in January remains valid. The original date to obtain a writ of eviction is simply a waiting period; in other words, the landlord must wait until that date to obtain a writ of eviction, but he or...Read more »
Too many factors at play to give a good answer, but let me provide a framework for analysis:
If you're thinking along the lines of invasion of privacy, then it would seem that this video was taken in some place or of something where an expectation of privacy existed for the person in the...Read more »
If I live with my girlfriend and her kids do I count as part of the family? For section 8 housing HUD calculations...I take care of her kids while she works but my landlord says I have to do community service if I am not working (which I can't as I take care of homeschooled children all day)....

Hi there. There was a sexual incident involving 2 boys at my child’s school. It is a safety concern for me and other parents as well. Other parents, including myself, have been talking about this and sharing information with parents who were not aware because the school is trying to hide it. I am... Read more »
Tread lightly here. A lot depends on who is threatening you with a lawsuit. When you are dealing with minors in a school setting, it's going to be tough for you to prove what you are saying or discussing is factual truth unless you are a party to the action.
Possibly. Whether you have a case and whether an attorney would take your case are two different things, and quite honestly comes down to costs / benefits to the attorney. Most attorneys who handle medical malpractice claims evaluate those claims thoroughly - often through an on-staff or contracted...Read more »
I received a ticket in Ogemaw County, MI for holding my phone to use it as a map/gps (as remarked on the citation). I was cited under the texting and driving law that specifies "a person shall not read, manually type, or send a text message on a wireless 2-way communication device that is located... Read more »
Without knowing why you are being evicted, it's hard to say what your defense may be. If you are in a special housing situation (e.g. "Section 8"), you may have some additional protections. Best thing you can do - especially since you say you have limited income - is to take your Notice to Quit to...Read more »
My name is Michael, I'm a 20 year old who was diagnosed with asperger's autism at a young age. I was told by a marine recruiter that asperger's autism is a disqualification for joining any branch of the military, is that true? I need some clarity
Your best bet is to check with recruiters from the different branches; each branch has different criteria. Military recruiting standards fluctuate, and some disqualifiers can be waived. Ultimately, though, you'll need to find a recruiter willing to work with you. All recruiters have quotas and thus...Read more »
My niece was removed from her mom due to drugs. My brother(out of state not in the picture) is the biological father. When my niece was removed she was placed with the mothers sister. My niece has recently been removed because of the aunt had kids fighting at her house and it is an unstable... Read more »
Your ability to intervene depends in part on your brother's legal status to the child. I understand that he is the biological father, but is he the legal father? It sounds like with the removal, this case may be heading toward a termination proceeding, in which both the mom and your brother's...Read more »
