We have court order for child. Out of money but the opposite lawyer now wants jury trial. He stated he was pro bono in front of judge ,so why do we have to pay for an already won case and court order because they didn’t like the outcome or the judges final decision .

A party who timely requests a jury trial is entitled to one. A timely request must be made before your final trial.
You say you have won custody, so there must have been a final trial.
I’m going to guess that when you say you won custody, what really happened is you were awarded... Read more »

Replacing a few ball gloves likely only costs a couple hundred dollars. An hour-long consultation with a lawyer costs that.
I can’t think of any reasonably viable solution that would cost less.

No, CPS does not have the regulatory authority to change drug test cutoff levels.
But be aware that cutoff levels are often different for screening vs confirmation testing, with confirmation cutoff levels being lower due to the greater precision of the tests

The driver who slammed into your Lyft is likely ultimately responsible under the facts you describe.

A “class” action means that there are a large number of plaintiffs, not defendants.
If you were named as a defendant, you were entitled to be served with notice of the lawsuit. If you were not served, you should contact an attorney to review your options.

Probably because they believe facts which aren’t so. Like whether a reasonably prudent pre-trip inspection would have disclosed the defect. Or like whether you are the individual responsible for maintaining the trailer.

The title of the car was formalized in his name during our marriage. He sold the car during divorce proceedings. I have not received half of the sale. Am I entitled to half of the amount it was sold for?
answered on Jan 19, 2023
No you are not entitled to half of the proceeds.
However, in making a just and right division of your community estate, your divorce court may consider the sale proceeds, and how such proceeds have been used by your husband.
