The warrant is evidently good for 1 year during daylight hours only. I have proof of defendant's continued address occupancy (signatures on USPS postal receipts within last 2 months), but is otherwise very good at dodging the sheriff. Person would be greatly happy when this expires, as could now... Read more »
After my ex and I split, we both agreed on an informal child support agreement. He'd continue giving me access to his vehicle and keep my phone on his cell phone plan. After a few personal disputes, he's threatening to take them back knowing it'll affect our kids, ie getting to drs appts and... Read more »

If your name is on the mortgage and it is being reported to the credit agencies, then as soon as that mortgage is reported as late that will be a ding on your credit. You can dispute your responsibility for the expenses with the agencies, but until...Read more »
Unfortunately she was wearing dark clothing but was walking with the traffic. She had her cell phone light on down by her side and other cars were avoiding her. When I spoke with the police and I asked if the driver was intoxicated, mind you this gentleman tried pulling my daughter into his truck... Read more »
So sorry to hear about your daughter. My gut tells me that this may not be worth pursuing, especially if your daughter's injuries are minor. It sounds like the police report is not helping the situation, noting your daughter's dark clothing. The other issue not mentioned is that you stated your...Read more »
As long as there are no other red flags on your file, that would probably be fine. However, if that happens, you should be overly prepared for the extra scrutiny such a move will likely bring to your marriage application.

He can sell it, legally, because it is his. However, a reason for waiting 5 years would be to preserve the ability to maybe cure the gift in case the parents need to apply for Medicaid within that 5 year period. In some states the gift penalty can be avoided by gifting the property back, in this...Read more »

In case of future resale, does the deed have to be amended to reflect the actual street address.? For instance, would it be important to fill out a Confirmatory Deed Form and... Read more »

If I missed my arraignment date but went to the courthouse and filed a motion to vacate default, paid bail/bond and got a new arrangement date. And the clerk tells me that I no longer have a warrant. And I have complied with the terms of BailBond conditions,
No- I have never heard of such an event in 35 years of practice. I am not even sure MA law has a 'bail jumping' law as you say. The penalty for bail jumping is your bail is forfeited to the state if one was posted, and they set a new bail usuallyhigher or double the old one to ensure you show up....Read more »
