Answered on Dec 10, 2017

it is kind of like a cop saying you were in a grey car when it was red....................that is not in and of itself a total defense.

if they have your license correct and your name and DOB correct that is more than enough.

when you did not make your payments i would believe a bench warrant was issued and thus you could no longer make payments.

you need a lawyer to make a motion to add to calendar and then quash the bench warrant and ask for sentence to be reinstated.

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Domestic Violence for California on
Answered on Dec 10, 2017

a lawyer would need a lot more information to answer this question.

certainly what you have done in the past can be introduced to argue you are not a fit parent.........whether that will happen or not is another question.

is there a case worker or probation officer over seeing this case?

Is it a criminal or family law domestic violence?

if criminal you are entitled to a court appointed lawyer.

without a police report it is hard to know what and how to argue. A lawyer needs all the evidence.

These issues can be addressed/resolved by your attorney.

If so argue lack of due process in that your evidence has disappeared with respect to bike being sold. That of course does not explain what i assume will be a...

Answered on Dec 8, 2017

you would need to share a lot more facts with a lawyer for that answer............however though you can sue any one at any time i think you would have a challenge finding a lawyer to take it on a contingency.

i suspect the lab reported your levels which were obviously not accurate.

you could have your doc review and prepare a letter of explanation.

if you can not find a lawyer then you can consider as a last resort going to small claims where you can sue for up to $10k...

Q: What can I do to fix this?

3 Answers | Asked in Personal Injury and Education Law for California on
Answered on Dec 8, 2017

try calling the superintendent of schools.

you can hire a lawyer who handles this area of law to sue her for damages but i think few lawyers would take the case on a lien.

the best result might be to sue her in small claims court through your parents.....they should have been fighting for you all this time and making a stink.

you can not have a lawyer in small claims and your case will be heard within a few months rather than a few years.

i would send her a...
