If you are getting cash assistance and food stamps, you may not receive any of the child support as the sate will likely intercept it to reimburse themselves for monies paid. Talk to your social worker and case worker.

Q: Are credit card banks required to return monies you charged to pay someone's bail but in fact we were being scammed?

1 Answer | Asked in Banking, Identity Theft and Consumer Law for Rhode Island on
Answered on Sep 19, 2016

I just reread the second posting of the same question. You were tricked BUT you legitimately purchased ITUNES cards. That is a problem. Contact the Itunes seller and see if they might be able to reverse those charges and cancel the cards. It is possible you may have no recourse as you were duped into believing that law enforcement is now accepting ITUNES payments. Much like the bitcoin - western union and other scams that are operating.

Q: Just a question. Yesterday i took my 2007 Lexus is250 to in-skip Lexus. The Catalytic converter needed to be replace. T

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law for Rhode Island on
Answered on Aug 31, 2016

I am not a mechanic but I suspect these two items may be related and suspect it is possible that they were unaware of the O2 sensor problem before the very expensive Catalytic converter was replaced. Hopefully, you came to some arrangement to keep your car on the road, This fellow seems to have figured out how to do it himself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEoCVvhi0Xw Of course, I am not recommending tearing your car apart yourself unless you have the skills and tools to do that.

1 Answer | Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Rhode Island on
Answered on Aug 31, 2016

You say you are in Brighton MA but you posted your question in Rhode Island. If you are able to negotiate an early termination of your lease, you will be most easily able to move and terminate the lease. If you are not able to come to an acceptable arrangement with your land/mice lord, then meet with a local attorney to review your lease, the evidence of the infestation, and all communications you have had regarding mice and men.

Answered on Aug 31, 2016

If you already have a court order for visitation, you can file a contempt motion with the court. It will be important to get him served with the motion so you will need to find out where he is living. Many family lawyers face this problem regularly and have some methods of discovering the address of "Departed parents". Meet with one and explore your options.

Q: If my car passed state inspection can they still give me a ticket for my car ? Even if the exhaust is after market ?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for Rhode Island on
Answered on Aug 31, 2016

If the car is complaint with all state regulations and has a current inspection sticker, it is not likely you will receive a ticket for the offense of having a non-complaint inspection. However, If your aftermarket exhaust is found to violate local noise ordinance, you may receive a ticket for that offense - varies by town/city.
