In all honesty you should not be concerned about the fines but a few of these violations have a mandatory loss of license and even the possibility of jail time.

This does not make sense without knowing more facts. Getting any changes to a NJ driver's license is very difficult. Are you a N.J. resident who is temporarily in Alaska? More information is going to be needed to understand what is actually going on.

The Court strictly follows the required statutory procedure for complaints filed seeking eviction of a tenant. To avoid having a case dismissed for failure to satisfy the statutory requirements merely prolongs your problems. My best advise is you retainan attorney to represent you in this matter.

Yes you can get arrested as you are committing a crime and so is your mother. The same as if your mother asked you to shoot a gun at a person, just because someone told you to do it, does that mean that you have to listen or that you have immunity from prosecution. By the way it is a crime for... Read more »

First I suggest that you see someone high up in the management of the DMV in Trenton. Next retain an attorney to get this matter resolved. Good luck. But you will not be able to sue the DMV for your damages.

I'm not sure what the BPU is. In Texas, if it is a rural water company, ask to see a copy of the company's tariff. The tariff will set out how they handle payments of deficiencies.

You should contact a personal injury attorney. The case or claim would be against the city. There are special laws and restrictions that apply to claims against government entities. You should be able to get a free consultation from a local personal injury attorney on a matter of this nature.
