Supervision is a disposition of guilt that is not a conviction. The Secretary of State keeps track of supervision internally, therefore your insurance company should not find out about it. Good luck. Al
If you have an Illinois divorce, your papers CANNOT say that no parent is to pay child support. The most it could say along this line is that Child Support is Reserved. This means that either party can come back to court after the divorce to establish a child support obligation.
There is not a question, only a situation. And it really isn't estate planning.
You cannot give him the property as long as he takes over the mortgage. How do you plan on giving him the property, and when? Is this transfer to be done in your will? Will you deed the property over...Read more »
We will still be in macon county only about 10 minutes further but a different school district. I do not get child support. I pay for everything. My ex gets every other weekend and 2 nights a week 4 hours each time. Do I need her approval to move?
Congratulations for considering an estate plan! It's so important to do this as soon as you're able, but we know most people don't (which makes their estates ultimately much messier and more expensive when they become disabled or die). I'm assuming you're...Read more »
The short answer is that a lawyer for the party who may claim some injury has sent you the form letter that generally kicks off such a case. I'm sure the letter asks you to report this incident to your insurer, which you don't have. Many lawyers in your situation will turn to their...Read more »
Federal law does not require employers to offer benefits (such as insurance, retirement plan, PTO, etc.). However, federal law does require you to be paid at least minimum wage for all hours worked, and overtime for all hours worked over 40 in a week (if you're paid by the hour). If...Read more »
Private employers have a lot more leeway with things like this. Unfortunately, weed smokers are not a protected class when it comes to discrimination. And employers have the right to decide, as long as they are not using discriminatory practices, on how to hire their employees. Maybe the...Read more »
Well, they can do it because they already did it, and they can drop charges for any reason or no reason at all. They certainly can do it. Should they? I mean, should drug possession even be a crime? There are a lot of should questions we can ask about this situation. But can they? If they...Read more »
Inalienable rights I would generally say are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I suppose you could consider the consumption of alcohol a pursuit of happiness. Generally, lawyers, at least lawyers that I know, do not speak about the consumption of alcohol being an inalienable right. It...Read more »
If the government sends the pipe out for testing, and they are able to scrape any meth out of it, they could charge you with possession of methamphetamine. It's possible for this type of a charge to be filed several months after the police took the pipe as they wait for the lab results. It...Read more »

It depends on if she's ever been convicted of Retail Theft before. And it depends on if they charged the trespassing as an ordinance violation or a misdemeanor. She should try and hire an attorney to help her minimize and maybe even get the charges dismissed with a deferred prosecution....Read more »
If the question you mean to ask is how long does it take to get approval for an MSA, the answer is that it depends how you go about it. If you have the ability and resources to do it yourself, it is possible to get approval in 45 to 60 days. If you use a third-party provider, it could take 6 to 9...Read more »

Last summer I was in an accident where I got a ticket for “driving too fast for conditions.” In hindsight I should’ve fought it because I fell asleep at the wheel so my speed had nothing to do with it, but whatever. Since then, I’ve gotten two speeding tickets. I’m aware that three... Read more »
It depends on the disposition of each ticket, your age and the offense dates. If you want to pull your ‘court purposes driving record’ from the Secretary of State, I’ll read it for you at no charge. In the meantime, a good rule of thumb is to always try for court supervision to avoid...Read more »
