If I am found responsible for a traffic ticket in court, can I request alternative forms of punishment rather than a hefty fine? I have medical proof from a doctor that I am paying out of pocket for medically necessary treatments. By paying a traffic ticket I am thereby arguing that my livelihood... Read more »
Best case scenario: you get a sympathetic judge who will wish you well while assessing minimal fines and costs. Worst case scenario, you'll get a judge that will ask and then lecture you about what medical condition causes you to break the law and place others at risk by your actions....Read more »
Typically, that provision relates to places where alcohol is the primary source of sales. There is a difference, certainly, between a bar that happens to serve food, and a restaurant that happens to also sell alcohol.
It would be wise, though, that while on parole, you conduct yourself...Read more »

They think i had info on friend whom got raided 10 days prior.. I told them i have no idea... Read more »
What is the question? I don't doubt you were being followed, and the police were just looking for reason to charge you with something. Whether it's "harassment" really depends on whether they had legal reasons to stop you each time. It sounds like they did, at least for the time...Read more »
Assuming you (and it would be your responsibility, or your lawyer's) properly served him with all the necessary paperwork (summons, complaint, and various other required forms if children are involved), than the only stuff his lawyer would receive is what he gave him or her. It would be on the...Read more »
Yes; you should seek advice from an attorney versed in abuse / neglect proceedings. "doing what they asked" is a necessary first step, but the law is far more complex than that, and many other factors are in play.
Our school offers both f2f and virtual. After 6 weeks, it is clear the Virtual platform is not meeting my students needs. My student has an IEP. I Have requested my student return to f2f but have been told I have to wait until the end of the first trimester (end and of November).
Good question, that unfortunately, I don't believe there is a solid answer. I would suggest, as is often the case with school law, that your advocacy will matter. If necessary, the issue should be addressed with the district's special education coordinator or equivalent, or the school board.
Ex wife didn't inform the court of her new job almost 2 years ago and her hourly rate came up significantly and we pretty much made the same amount. So continued to collect child support based on her lower wage amount. Can I ask it to be recalculated and back dated to when she got her new job?... Read more »
My ex wife recently passed away completely unexpectedly with no will. She was not married, we live in Michigan and we have 3 minor children that we shared custody of (her only heirs and family in the United States). She has a home in our preferred school district that is currently just sitting... Read more »
Likely yes; the POA or patient advocate designation gives them the ability to make those sort of decisions. If your mother is of sound mind, she could refuse or appoint others to act on her behalf. If not, then the move would likely happen. Once POAs or patient advocates go into effect, it's...Read more »
I have lived in a small Detroit suburb for 20 years and recently a female server, at a bar I was dining, informed her manager and staff that I made her feel uncomfortable. I was asked to leave by another staff member. So I asked for the night manager whom reaffirmed the servers opinion and asked... Read more »
If you want to prevent this from becoming a bigger and more known issue, the best thing you could do is let it be and not go back to this establishment. It doesn't matter what other business owners say about you; what matters is that a server, her manager(s), and the owner of this...Read more »
My fiance was arrested based on a report I can prove is false. Because of his history from 20 years ago, and the fact that he is on parole, he was given an unreasonably high bond. He has now been held 48 days since the original charges and 45 days since the secondary charges of resist and... Read more »
Something unusual is happening here...I'm wondering if he has been actually arraigned on these charges as opposed to just being picked up on a parole violation. If he was arraigned, he would have needed to consent to waiving the 21-day rule by this point, or waived his prelim. Making matters...Read more »
My sister, and my Mom's brother, truly believe my Mom was coerced because we knew her, and too many things went against her known wishes. Still is. He is easily a multi millionaire, and my Mother told my sister and I repeatedly what she wanted us to have. Most pre-him coming into our lives.... Read more »
Possibly, but it's a longshot. You would need to establish the wrongdoing, which won't be easy. To compound the problem, even if you successfully challenge the validity of the trust, negating the terms of the trust, your mom was still married to this man and he would then be eligible to...Read more »
I don't think you have a valid claim to sue the state for sending you to prison on an adult conviction. Many people under 18 are incarcerated in prisons in Michigan as well as just about every other state.
