If it was ruled improper venue then it would probably dismissed without prejudice and you would probably have to file anew with the correct court. If it is a change of venue the court would probably transfer everyhting to the new court and it would pick up from where it left off. Either way you...View More
It is very unlikley that you will find a case where the child's choice was the only factor used to determine what is in her/his best interest. (Actually you won't.) Numerous factors are considered by the court in making its decision. The child preference MAY be considered by the court....View More
I am not sure who would fine you. Unless your cussing amounts to criminal act you should not be subject to any fines. I am not aware of any law that gives a collection agency the authority to fine you for cussing.
I am graduating high school in January 2011 however, will not be turning 18 until August 2011. Is there a loophole in the age of majority law that allows me to visit a friend for a week (without parental consent) without the friend getting in trouble for "harboring a runaway"? The friend...

I apologize, but it is impossible to answer this question without further information. You state that the bank "insisted" that you sell, but "made" you sign a voluntary surrender. You should properly defend yourself, and probably file counter claims against the bank. Feel free...View More
My minor son was detained at a high school game for "disorderly conduct" the officer released my son into my custody and said he would receive a ticket in the mail and that the sergeant would call me later on that night to explain why my son was taken into custody. The officer... View More
Obstructing the legal process can be a very serious charge. It is a very fact specific crime. The possible penalties vary greatly, from a fine to prison time.

I believe that Hennepin County has established a pilot program and Ramsey County is soon to follow. At this point, I beleive only certain law firms are involved in the program(s). You may want to check with your specific count to see what its timeline is, and whether you can file by fax.
