The file is then sent back to the original court and they file a warrant for their arrest. (Warrants filed expire at the end of every year & have to be refiled in the new year). The warrant was filed October 2017 & was never refiled after that. He was arrested in December 2020 on that... Read more »
Warrants do not expire in Alabama. In fact, I don't know of a jurisdiction where warrants do expire. If a warrant was issued for his arrest it will remain outstanding until the warrant is served via arrest. Warrants can be defective but, age alone does not make a warrant defective.
I am miserable living under the same roof with my spouse. I came clean about being gay, and admitted to an emotional affair - but no intimacy took place. I'm too afraid to leave because he'll say I abandoned my house and belongings. We don't talk, just argue and ignore each other.... Read more »
I cannot tell you how much confusion there is out there on the streets with this concept of "abandonment." Once upon a time (not as long ago as you would think but long enough ago that it doesn't bear more than a few words to address) you had to prove cause to get a divorce. There...Read more »

7/24/21 put deposit. Was told he gave previous tenets 30 days to vacate. He was supposed to contact me if I could move in sooner. I got a message 8/24/21 saying this was the last day and to contact him, he said that he wasn't sure if the tenets were moved out because they had left some... Read more »
I would suggest contacting an attorney to go over the specifics of your case in detail. A landlord has a duty to provide you both legal and actual possession of a property. Having prior tenants living there would violate that duty.
I’m being harassed by a man I met online. We were in a long distance digital relationship that I ended, but now he won’t go away. He’s sending threats/messages/images to me/my family. How can I make him stop?
I would suggest calling the non-emergency number for you local police department. Describe the situation and detail the threatening messages. You might be able to get a protection from abuse order based on the facts of your situation.
So my sister died and she has 1 child. This child’s father is living, but can’t get custody of a dog if he wanted to, and has had prior cases where he was denied custody of other children.

Alabama has only recently recognized grandparents rights and the law is still a bit...Read more »

Give a time limit to respond. You may want to send it certified mail so that you can...Read more »

That will be determined as part of your settlement. If you have not accepted a property settlement offer you can negotiate to keep the vehicle. They will likely reduce their offer by what they assess the salvage value of the vehicle to be.
Likely depends on the language of the lease agreement, property insurance agreements, and renters insurance agreements. I would suggest taking those documents to an attorney for review to get specific advise.
