First thing: your current girlfriend has the PPO; this is her battle to wage, and she's the one - and only one - that should be calling that office. Second, with a PPO, violations should typically first be reported to the police, not victim services; what is it exactly you expect them to do... Read more »
My public defender wants me to see psychologist because I find it weird the dashcam has no date time stamp
answered on Oct 26, 2022
Typically it would have date stamps. But I'm not sure that's the issue. You should have a conversation with your attorney about why he or she is recommending you see a psychologist.
On March 1 2022 Judge Finch dismissed this claim. for the past 5 months this ruling is under legal review by PUA while their collections department is now threatening wage garnishment.

Probably. Assuming the dismissal was with prejudice and you are no longer responsible for the alleged debt. I suggest you contact a debt defense lawyer to review your legal options.
I’ve been actively making my monthly child support payments and I got a lump sum va disability payment. my bank held and took funds to send to my child’s mother via child support office .Is this lawful?
answered on Jul 8, 2022
Likely yes. First, your bank didn't do anything except comply with a presumptive lawful order issued by a court. Your issue is with the court, not the bank.
VA disability is considered income for child support purposes, and so is subject to garnishment.
I would suggest you... Read more »

Great question! Politicians are judged by the court of public opinion; and quite frankly, many people are not interested in the truth. And sometimes even audio and visuals can be rendered to make it seem someone is saying or doing something they are not.

It's an elected position. You could try petitioning for a recall election. Just keep in mind that mayors don't act alone; there is often a city manager or commission.
If the president of the Confederate Treasure left the gold intentionally would that not legally invoke the finders keepers laws? Who initially owned the confederate gold?
answered on Feb 11, 2022
The federal Confiscation Act of 1862 would apply to gold owned by the Confederate States of America (which the Act did not recognize as an entity), with the result that the United States would own the gold. This is a hypothetical question because the CSA government probably held no gold at the... Read more »

I am a collector of Michigan police badges license plates insignias etc
answered on Jan 18, 2022
Are you looking to collect actual plates? You may want to check with various police departments. My understanding is that most local police have municipal plates - same plates as any other city vehicle, with an "x" in the middle. Not sure how much of a collector's item that would be.
I filed for a PUA claim using the reason "independent contractor experienced a significant reduction in usual or customary services" as I did work for the local school.

Possibly. You'll need to read the notice you received closely to determine what steps are needed at this point. You may also wish to seek the assistance of an attorney.
I got a letter from the Michigan Unemployment Office saying a “question of eligibility and/or qualification has been raised on a claim in which you are an interested party”. The dates they want proof of income on range from 3/2020 all the way to 5/2021.

You really need to speak to a lawyer soon, and preferably before you respond to the request for information. Whether criminal charges arise may depend on intent.

You are not alone. However, the court did not cause you to lose your paid representation; that is between you and your attorney.
Multiple charges, drug related at a residence of a tribal member. Kids custody affected, and defendant is being treated with cruel an strange threats and absurd penalties
answered on Sep 15, 2021
Not only can then, but if it's an abuse or neglect case, different rules apply and the tribal court would have jurisdiction.
answered on Aug 21, 2021
Not sure of the exact nature of your question. Speedy trial rights are different than the timeline between arrest and charges. And it is true that you cannot be held for very long without any charges.
It is not uncommon - especially in serious crimes - for someone to be arrested or... Read more »

civil infractions, petty-misdemeanor, non-violent misdemeanors, non-violent felonies, etc... .
answered on Mar 12, 2021
With modern technology, it's rare to see a paper arrest warrant. Police can arrest you for misdemeanors committed in their presence, or felonies upon information - there is no distinction between violent or non-violent. Search warrants are a different story.
webb v. state 51 n.j.l. 189 (1889), suggest that it is a requirement under common law.
answered on Mar 12, 2021
The 4th Amendment does govern whether a warrant may be issued and when. Be careful with legal research and relying on case law for information unless you are trained to do so.
unreasonable search and seizure; probable cause; warrant; etc.... .
answered on Mar 12, 2021
Your question is much to broad. The 4th Amendment is the subject of new case law nearly every week. But very broadly, a search or seizure must come about after reasonable suspicion or probable cause.
