Probably not. Look, insurance is a business. It is probably not worth their while to fully investigate what might have happened, especially when clearly, the insurance company is paying a claim anyway, just to save a few bucks.
It is pre-arranged; insurance companies are most collision...Read more »
Even though my oldest children we very aware of his wish. It was later discovered that the new wife may not actually be his wife. We were unable to locate any marriage certificate on file and when we contacted the crematorium about how they verified the marriage making her next of kin. They... Read more »
Fortunately, a burial is reversible, whereas a cremation is not. Your oldest child could petition the probate court for an order to handle the affairs. But if it's shown that this other woman is in fact the wife, then she would have priority to make those decisions and there would then not be...Read more »
Landlord has not sent me any type of notice to quit or anything at all. He changed the locks tonight at 6pm and said he wanted me and my stuff out by TONIGHT. Or he "won't be nice anymore"... He keeps bringing up that we have no written lease, so he thinks he can threaten me and... Read more »
Often, terms of probation will include substance abuse or mental health treatment even if not a part of the sentencing offense. The rationale is that even if you didn't get busted for drugs, substance abuse probably played a role in the assault.
I have an arraignment tomorrow morning for a charge I was never arrested and charged for. I am being accused of bailing someone out of jail with conterfeit money. I have NO IDEA if this is true or not, to my knowledge I paid with real cash!! How stupid would I possibly be?! I had no clue. The... Read more »
All you can do is go through the process at this point. The prosecution will need to show that you knew or should have known the money was fake. If what you're saying is true, I think you have a compelling case to make to a jury.
I think you're right that you can sue them. I would try consulting a consumer rights attorney before trying it on my own. And I would plan to go ahead and sue in the general civil division (district court), not small claims. In small claims, neither party can have an attorney, and a business...Read more »
I am sure there are - check in more rural areas and attorneys who work with farmers. Although, you probably don't need to limit your search to someone with specific experience with veterinarian medicine as the concept of malpractice would be the same as with humans. Any attorney would need to...Read more »
If this is a follow-on question to the one posted the other day regarding residency, please note that a person can have multiple legal residences. The question turns on whether you have some intent to return. A hotel is generally not a residence because when people stay in a hotel, it's...Read more »
First, be very cautious about what you are doing. Second, if you are appealing after a sentence, your attorney, unless they agreed otherwise, has no obligation to help you appeal. Appeals and trial work are completely different. If you are appealing, see my first point; you could be jeopardizing...Read more »
them my constitutional rights have been violated because my arraignment on information was waived without my knowledge. I nevere agreed on or off the record to waive my arraignment on information. I have nothing on paper with my signature or anything being waived on any court... Read more »
One of two things happened at your prelim: either 1) you did waive circuit court arraignment, or 2) the district court judge arraigned you on the information - possibly because you refused to waive. If either of those two situations did not occur, as you are saying, then the remedy is for you to be...Read more »

First, there is no such thing as a "discovery packet". When people use that term, they are generally referring to the police report, and perhaps fingerprints, DNA, etc. The police report itself is not evidence. But in some cases, that may be the only thing in the "discovery...Read more »
I was subleasing but not on lease ex roommate decided to shut gas off on me and take my keys now I can't access basement to get my gas on and my kids are at risk of getting tooken because she called cps as a way to self evict what can I do about this
You are at risk for CPS action because you don't have stable housing (e.g. name on a lease). Does the landlord know you are subletting? If so, you should talk with them. If they don't know and had not approved, then your issue is with your ex roommate, but going after her will not help...Read more »
Yes. Miranda rights apply when there is custody AND interrogation. Often times, police will "invite" you down to the station to talk with them, and will say something to the effect of "you're free to go anytime but we really hope you'll stay because we just want to hear...Read more »
