You may have a claim against the driver of the truck and his automobile liability insurance. That would be an easier case than trying to sue the company who owns the apartment complex.
In the event that the driver's insurance denies the claim, you may also have a valid claim against... Read more »
The defendant received another court date and is convinced I filed them but the state is the plaintiff. He thought it was dropped. Why is there another court date? And am I involved?
answered on Dec 27, 2021
I am assuming that this is an Alabama Court. If not, you should ask a Tenn. lawyer.
The state is who brings the charge against the person who abused you. You are the complaining witness. You should get some counseling and stick to your guns and see this through.
My husband got arrested in April and his parole officer violated him in June but he hasn't been to court for the charge from April and the parole board already stated that they are sending him to prison

It depends on the conditions of your husband's parole and whether or not he is in violation of any of those conditions.
You are asking your child's other parent a question about where they are taking your child and they are ignoring you so to prevent them from taking the child you grab their keys. After doing so they push you into a window, twist your arm and punch you. Are they legally justified?
answered on Dec 31, 2020
Of course not!!! But you already know that. You are being abused. See a lawyer. As an alternative, consider going to the County courthouse and swearing out a warrant against him for Protection from Abuse. (PFA) The Circuit or District Court Clerks will probably help you fill out the form.... Read more »

You have all the rights. Do not let him bully you into seeing her and possibly hurting her. You do not have to let him see her and it is bad for you if you do, knowing what he does. Go to DHR and sign up for child support. They do not do visitation nor custody. He will have to get a lawyer to get... Read more »

If you are being abused, call 911. The police will respond and help you. Also go to the DAs office in your local county and they can help you get a PFA so he cannot come near you. They will also put you in touch with second chance so you can have a place to go, in case you don’t. Good luck.
And verbally abuse me. I did a protection order but he held me hostage so I couldn’t go he also threaten me If I go back that he will hurt me and take our child. How can I collect child support and not let him be around my child? He sell drugs and is not a stable person.
answered on Sep 27, 2020
Please contact 2nd chance and they will help you get away from him.
Also contact DHR who will go after child support without giving any visits. Good luck to you.

He does not have the right to bother you during your pregnancy. Contact him one last time and tell him if he bothers you again you will have him arrested. And then stop all contact. If he bothers you again call the police and have him arrested. When you go to the hospital and have the baby, do not... Read more »

Nothing. They will probably put the case in an administrative docket for six months and then if there are no further problems they will dismiss it.
In my case as a defindent on the grounds she as no rights no more to pursue charges on me because she in jail.. Yes or no?
answered on Jul 28, 2020
If I'm understanding your question correctly, no. Just because a complaining witness is in jail, the state doesn't have to dismiss the charge against you. In fact, he being in jail makes the state's job easier as they know where she is and can easily bring her to court to testify... Read more »
Divorce. I want to take the kids back to
California with me. My husband is telling me that
I am not allowed to take the kids. Can i take my to Ca? I do not have any friends or family in Alabama. All the so called family is his mama brother and sister.
answered on Jun 21, 2020
Hello. It depends. You both can agree on taking them to CA, or try it before the judge and let him/her decide.
I took the phone out of her hand and put it on the counter. She then came after me. Not once did I hit, grab or push her.

Since you are a juvenile that’s how you will be charged, as a juvenile. Ask for a consent decree since it’s the first time you’ve been in trouble. A consent decree means you consent to being on probation and once you are through with probation the charge just goes away. If you have some... Read more »

Interesting question and very timely. You are asking for a judgment on a practice matter. A restraining order (which I believe would most appropriately come in the form of an Elder Protection From Abuse Order (EPFA) is very unlikely to be issued on your facts. Are your parents mentally competent?... Read more »

It sounds like you definitely need to consult with a criminal defense lawyer. I, or a lot of other folks on this site, would be happy to talk with you.
answered on Feb 13, 2020
You case will likely be set for an Arraignment, Pre-Trial/Plea Docket, then, if not yet resolved, a Jury Trial. However, every case can be different, so your best bet is to retain counsel as soon as possible.

Depends on if its First, Second or Third degree; depends on the facts and allegations; depends on the accused person's background and their personal circumstances. There are a number of factors that need to be considered. However, the accused person should consider putting themselves in the... Read more »
I despise this young man. He is controlling, abusive & won't let her have friends. They have split up several times but she always takes him back. I am desperate to get her away from him. What are my options?
answered on Jul 15, 2019
If you do so before she is 18 you can file a CHINS petition. That is your best option. Get in touch with an attorney in your area and get this done. That is a court petition that can be filed through the juvenile court that says she is in need of supervision.
Neither one of us touched the other we have no marks of the such. What should we do, or maybe can be done?
answered on May 30, 2019
You need to contact an attorney in your local area as soon as possible. The charge is of a type that can haunt you on background checks, etc., if not handled properly.
Police had to get involved to control situation.
