Your granddaughter can hire any attorney of her choosing at any time. If she has a court-appointed attorney, however, or is being represented for free by a legal aid organization, *and* the feeling is that the "free" attorney isn't doing his/her job, then it might be time for the family to come...Read more »
given custody of my daughter by the court I was 17 at the time and my Grandmother backed this lie up and has my daughter in Deleware, while my mom is in PA. How do I get my child back now? I found out that no custody order ever existed and its been six years. I live in Pa. as well
If your daughter has been with your grandmother in Delaware for the past continuous six (6) months, then you'll need to file a custody action in Delaware -- and consult with a Delaware family law attorney about how to do that. Pennsylvania would no longer have jurisdiction.
Occasionally, there are customers who agree to have the work performed and the price, even with the understanding that payment is due upon pickup of the vehicle, who then do not pay. I am not aware of any law in Pennsylvania that allows a mechanic lien to hold the vehicle until payment is... Read more »
You absolutely can keep the car until you receive full payment for the repair services performed -- so long as the owner actually requested that the services be performed. Pennsylvania common law grants you an "artisan's lien" on property that you've made more valuable as a result of your repair...Read more »
I just received an underage from 3 months ago. My race is wrong on the report. Also, the person driving is trying to get his charges dropped by claiming the officer made an unlawful stop. How will all that affect my fine?
A divorcing couple owned two houses. They agreed that Party B would get the better house and Party A would take their small and run-down first house.

If you suspect the abuse was committed by an adult in charge of your child's care (like a relative), then you can certainly contact your local Children & Youth agency to report it. I see you're posting your question from Philadelphia, so you'd contact the city's Department of Human Services....Read more »
I was accused of forgery from a woman that I was doing landscaping for, she recently passed away and I received a plea agreement from the state, I have not accepted it, as most officers have told me that the case will be thrown out. What are my next steps from here, will this case be thrown out?
Likely, but not necessarily. If she gave a statement to the police or District Attorney's Office before her death, there may be a way they can get that statement into evidence in a trial against you (as well as hearsay from her before her death as told to police officers, etc.). So you're not...Read more »
The statute of limitations for Possession with Intent to Distribute (PWID), an ungraded felony, is five (5) years.

If the toxic family member is a grandparent, I will tell you that he/she does have...Read more »

Let's backtrack. If "your" two girls are two of the three children that you and your BF have together, then your BF has just as much legal right to have them as you do. If the two of you can't agree on who will have legal and physical custody of your three children, however, then one of you will...Read more »
The Police Criminal Complaint might have been mailed to you, and maybe you never got that mail because the cops and courts don't have your current mailing address?
