You will need to ask the union to reissue another check in exchange for the allegedly faulty one. Or deposit it into another bank. But first be sure you have not done anything wrong.

Q: TN Law - I've stated that I will press harassment charges against a company/"company" if they continue to call me.

I've been making that statement for years, but I'm guessing I should know what I can and can't do. If there is a telemarketer/company rep/spam call and have hung up on them more than 1-2 times, I will notify them that I will file harassment charges if they continue to call me. So... View More

In Tennessee, the laws regarding harassment typically apply to behavior that involves threats, intimidation, or repeated unwanted contact that causes emotional distress.

In Tennessee, whether you can be arrested for breach of trust regarding a vehicle depends on the specific circumstances. If the car is registered in your ex's name, they are legally recognized as the owner, even if you have been making the payments.

Refusing to return the vehicle upon...

A/B Felonies do not get diverted. Get a full time job, new phone number & phone, and stay out of trouble. Try to hire your own lawyer. Get ready for a rigorous Preliminary Hearing. Do not talk about this to anyone but your lawyer.

Q: Can anything be done to a person who has constantly sent me threatening messages through different apps?

I've been sent threatening messages from the same person through different accounts and they have made fake accounts just to be able to send these messages to me. Does it still count towards harassment even though it's fake accounts and names?

Yes, you may want to consider seeking an Order of Protection against this person. You could also consider calling the non-emergency police line and reporting the harassment. Sometimes a cease and desist letter from an attorney is successful in getting someone to stop messaging. If these options... View More

Sometimes agreements can't be enforced (even if you sign them). What the document is describing sounds... View More

You need to actually speak with an attorney who handles these types of cases, juvenile dependency. Without doing that, there probably is no hands on help available to you. Instead of asking how to get your children back, you ask only if you can sue them? I don't get it.
