Something this serious should not be done without representation and as such, I recommend that the first thing you do is consult with a few family law attorneys to discuss this and then decide how to best proceed.
I put a missing person out for my son and when he was located the investigator said he has to turn him over to sheriff's office for a warrant that wasn't in the system from almost a year ago. Altercation with his dad but dad didn't press charges. Now is in jail with no court or... Read more »
Not enough information is provided here, however the charge can be probated, it is is punishable with incarceration and as such, I would recommend that the defendant hire a criminal defense lawyer to begin preparing a defense of the matter in hope of achieving the best outcome.
If you go to trial and the prosecution does not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt or if before trial the prosecution is convinced that it cannot prove its case, then yes you might get the reckless op dismissed. On the other hand, if you are going 30 mph over the speed limit, then many times...Read more »
On its face the answer to your question is that it is not illegal. That said, the voting process is very possibly described and detailed in your HOA's governing documents and you should review them and see what they say---or hire an attorney to see what they say and whether or not it is...Read more »
More information is needed to answer this question but just guessing I would advise that if you want something between 2 parties to possibly be enforceable as to the 3rd parties then yes, it would have to be recorded in the public record----but having stated this, one would still need additional...Read more »
I co-signed for my son a car at the price of $12,400. The car was purchased January 2020 with $1000 down toward it, notes are $410.64 but he still has four more years of payments. This is truly unjustified, unfair and ridiculous. I need guidance on what to do and who to contact to help.
Yes, it is most likely unfair and ridiculous however you and your son sign the agreement-----and you are going to have to explain why it was not voluntary. Try the Consumer Protection Division of the LA Attorney General's office and see if it can provide you some assistance. At this point...Read more »
but the police took his side and threatened to arrest me if I called them again. I was also told as long as he received mail here, he was a resident. I was told my landlord could have him evicted. He tried but we both got the runaround and Covid-19 restrictions came into place by time we finally... Read more »
Yes, your landlord can move to evict him only. If your landlord is willing to help, have them meet with a real estate attorney to make sure they are following proper eviction procedure, otherwise your boyfriend could have a potential wrongful eviction suit.
In order to really answer this question, one should review what is actually owned by you and by her and what, if any, restrictions exist as to selling the property. Once that is done, then one needs to determine what effect, if any, goes to any verbal agreements made between the two of you as to...Read more »
You post does make sense but from it, I understand that you have some pending criminal charges-----and although they are most likely misdemeanors, you should still contest them if you have legal defenses and/or think that the prosecution will not be able to provide its case-----you best bet to...Read more »
Sometimes. The average rate for most misdemeanors is probably around $1,500---$2,000 depending on the charge. True, if you call around you might be able to find an attorney who will charge less than $1,500--$2,000 depending on the circumstances, but there are also attorneys who will charge more....Read more »
More details are needed, but to me the obvious answer is to hire him a competent or better criminal defense lawyer who practices in the area where the prosecution is taking place. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and search for criminal defense lawyers in that area---contact a few, discuss the details...Read more »
My son told me of the behavior of the killer that let to his death just weeks prior to the incident and I want to make sure he get the proper representation. Our last conversations are his only defense because he is dead and I want to make sure he is represented properly. I am unsure of the... Read more »
If you are seeking justice for your son and you want the defendant to be found guilty, then contact the District Attorney's office and ask to speak to the assistant district attorney or the investigator involved in the prosecution of the defendant. Tell him that you have information relative...Read more »
"Improper communication"; I think you mean LRS 14:285 which is basically calling someone up to harass them and swearing at them. You need to get this expunged once probation is completed. Then it should not be an impediment to admission to school or the military.
An employer may not discriminate against employees based on race. Federal and state law prohibits this. Additionally, employers, managers and leaders have an obligation to ensure that employees under their supervision are not participating in discriminatory behavior. Us of the "N" word...Read more »
A Louisiana attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Make your initial request to the doctor who performed your surgery. Although they may be affiliated with the hospital, they probably maintain their own separate records and billing information. But you could...Read more »
