That would be one solution, assuming that bankruptcy makes sense otherwise. If he has low income, owns little or nothing, and has other significant deaths, this could be a reasonable option.

My ex hacked my phone and had my unemployment backpay sent to her bank

Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on May 6, 2021

I would call the police department and try to get in touch with the person you spoke with to see if the report has been forwarded to a detective for review. You could also call the unemployment office and they may have special investigators that would look into your case.

It depends on what was promised.what the breeder knew and how reliable the DNA test is? If the breeder knowingly misled you and sold you something he knew to be false then that could be a case for fraud.

Q: So I recently got pulled over due to no seat belt on but got charged with 4 different charges. What is going to happen?

No seatbelt, suspended license (which was new to me), no insurance, no registration plates. The officer didn't handcuff me and im assuming it was because of my carseat. Am I just going to pay a fee? If so, how much?

Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on May 3, 2021

If you have proof that you had a valid license and insurance you are not looking at any jail time. If anything was suspended or lapsed at the time you were pulled over you need to get it renewed before court. I would contact an experienced Attorney to help represent you and minimize your exposure.
