A year ago my bf went to jail for online solicitation of a minor. I was wondering since my parents filed against him but won't share his sentencing information, how can I get that information as the "victim". I'll be 18 in a month and I was hoping to file a motion to drop the... Read more »
You can likely look up public access records from the court he was convicted in. It's highly likely that a no-contact order with you remains in place through his term of probation or parole.

A little over a month ago CPS (drug allegations and domestic violence allegations) cohorced me into verbally agreeing to a safery plan, placing my kids with my grandparents. Today I decided enough was enough and went to go get my kids. My grandparents wouldn't let me take them! Can they do... Read more »
I wouldn't worry so much about what your grandparents can or cannot do as I would what CPS will do. You run the risk of CPS filing a petition and requesting removal of the children - potentially into foster care, and exposing you to termination of your parental rights.
Was doing the posted speed limit. Tried to swerve out of the way due to lack of time to brake properly. Haphazardly told them (off record) that I would help them out but then reconsidered because they hit me. No pictures were taken of any damages. Only info given was my first name and phone number....

How do you know the other car wasn't insured? If you have received paperwork starting a lawsuit, you should consult immediately with a local attorney. It's possible to raise as a defense the fact that they weren't insured.
My son's school announced last year (before his Jr. year) that they would begin weighting courses on a 5.0 scale but would not retroactively weight the prior years for students (he took adv. & excell. courses then - as school pushed). Rather than begin this new system for the in-coming... Read more »
There are many facts that need to be known that you don't provide to be able to answer this question. You are best to consult with an immigration attorney. Many attorneys offer free phone consultations that may be very helpful for you to start with. Best wishes!
he gave me a 24 hour Eviction notice and took all of my property the next day. i was paid until the end of the month and got there in 2 days to save my property but he said he sold everything already! isnt this considered a burglary?
So in essence they sold you something they didn't own ....
Under what authority would YOU have to apply for a lost title? That sounds like something the HEIRS of the previous owner could do, and if the park took an assignment from those heirs something IT might be able to do, but the...Read more »
A lease is a contract. Generally, the parties are bound by the provisions of a signed lease. Turning in the keys is a unilateral step only. Without the landlord's release, you would still be obligated on the contract.
Yes, but you don’t ‘obtain’ it, you file it with the state’s corporation bureau.
The form is pretty self explanatory, but if you’re going to be renting property in Michigan it makes sense to hire and retain a lawyer in the area of that property to insure you comply with...Read more »
If the proceeds of the life insurance is over $5,000 then the law requires a minors money to be managed through the probate court conservator process. You would have to appointed by the probate court as your children's conservator. You will have to account to the court how much you start with...Read more »
Reads as though there is more going on than just the repair person taking photos inside your house. It is possible there is an invasion of privacy issue here, but it might depend on what was photographed and/or whether or not the contract says anything about photographs.
I was sued for debt and received a summons and complaint. I settled with them and sent them a cashier's check certified mail after getting the settlement offer via email. They got it and say they have filed a "stop service" and that I will get something in the mail in 25-30 days from... Read more »
