Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Construction loans are disbursed piecemeal, as different phases are complete. The first phase includes paying the architect who drew the construction plans for the contractor to use when building the structure.
Chris W. Burks' answer Thanks and the standard for a change in custody in Arkansas is a material change in circumstances. You could argue that the child's poor attendance and performance in school, coupled with worsening health amounts to a change in circumstances. There are many factors a Court will consider, but it is worth you speaking with an attorney based on what you decribed
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer It is unlawful to leave an unattended car on the side of most roads in every state. And--depending upon which road it is, the authorities will be sure to give tickets (and may even impound cars) when in interest of public safety.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Be very careful here. If you attempt to file jointly after your spouse (or someone else posing as your spouse) has filed, the IRS will likely notice the duplicity in SSANs--and will possibly hold YOU responsible. The last thing either of you two need is the IRS coming after you.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Although I am not authorized to practice law in Arkansas I am authorized (as are you) to Google "felony bad check in Arkansas" where you will read that "hot" checks in excess of $1,000 are felonies; hot checks totaling over $1,000 if written within 90 days of each other can sometimes (but not always) be prosecuted as felonies. As to what the judge intends to do to you at your sentencing in June, since I am not (yet) omniscient I cannot tell you; however, if you hire an Arkansas criminal lawyer...
Timur Akpinar's answer It could depend on the amount of the check, who the person/entity making payment is, and what type of matter it is. If you're asking from the standpoint of a payment on an insurance claim, it could be as quickly as several days if the release is approved, there are no liens, and no other issues. If there are liens that require negotiation and satisfaction, then things could take considerably longer, depending on the lienholders (for instance, if the claim involved medical services that...

Gregg Austin Knutson's answer I would need more information to give an opinion. It’s not clear if an interlock order was entered. Normally, once an interlock device order is entered, it must be installed and kept in place for the duration of the order.
James E Hensley Jr's answer The answer is "yes." In Arkansas it is called a single-parent adoption. It removes an errant father from the child's life. You may adopt your child provided:
1. You do not have any felonies on your record;
2. The father has gone more than one year without having a relationship with the child. That does not mean he can show up a couple times a year. The law requires parents to be engaged in the raising of a child.
3. The father has gone more than one year without...
Stewart Whaley's answer Can't do a contingency fee in Arkansas divorces. It will be difficult securing a pro bono divorce. If the parties agree to an uncontested divorce, you may find a reasonable, fixed-fee option.
Arkansas Rule 1.5(d) (d) A lawyer shall not enter into an arrangement for, charge, or collect:
(1) any fee in a domestic relations matter, the payment or amount of which is contingent upon the securing of a divorce or upon the amount of alimony or support, or property settlement in lieu...
James E Hensley Jr's answer You need to talk with a lawyer. You could go to prison from one year to several years. Being revoked means you did not follow the Court's orders regarding your probation. Your question is very broad. We need to know where the case is, the Judge's name, your charges, your name, the specifics of your probation order, etc. Most lawyers will answer your question over the phone. The lawyers listed here are great to help. I'll be glad to talk with you too.
