A violation of parole does not mean that an individual will get an automatic year of incarceration. If your friend signed for 90 days on the parole violation then he will be released after the 90 days pending the outcome of the new charge and any bond they will have to make after the parole hold...Read more »

There is a very, very strong presumption that a bank account that is titled as joint tenants with right of survivorship goes to the survivor upon the death of the other account holder, and the bank can safely turn over the funds to the survivor without requiring probate.
I was the only AA at my job in corporate banking. I suspected that I was being discriminated against.

Yes. A lot depends on the facts of the case. Typically though, a probation offer is possible; especially with a good lawyer. It is also possible to get the Class B Felony down to a lower Felony. Need to get a lawyer right away.
Not guaranteed. Happens all the time where someone will take the fall. The DA will analyze the case and evidence. If this person is lying, they could be charged with obstruction, perjury, false statement.... lots of stuff so be very careful. Best to hire an attorney and let the attorney present...Read more »
You probably can achieve what you need with a power of attorney, as opposed to a guardianship. A POA can give the grandparents authority to make decisions for your son, such as school and medical.
