You should not discuss any more details about your case on this or any other public website. Anything you say here is not protected and could be used against you. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney in your local jurisdiction to confidentially discuss the specific facts and circumstances of your particular case.

Q: Speeding ticket amended to "no muffler", job website asks if I've been cited for a moving violation, what do I answer?

1 Answer | Asked in Employment Law, Military Law and Traffic Tickets for Missouri on
Answered on Jan 20, 2016

This is new to me to see the word "cited" instead of "convicted." Since the word, "cited" is what is used, you have been cited with a speeding ticket. You received a citation from the officer but were not convicted by the court. The big deal is if you lie in this situation. Better to just tell them you have received a citation.

Answered on Jan 19, 2016

You can get a re entry permit which will allow you to stay out of the US for 2 years without abandoning your green card. Being a green card holder for one year might make the removal of conditions petition a little hard but you should talk to an attorney to get you started with the procedure as soon as possible so you can get it approved before your husband leaves to korea. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations and talk to an attorney...

Q: Leaving for Bootcamp soon, does my employer have to pay me?

1 Answer | Asked in Employment Law and Military Law for Pennsylvania on
Answered on Nov 3, 2015

Your "vacation days" would be unpaid? The first sentence you quoted doesn't apply, because you normally are not in the reserves until you have undergone basic training. I don't believe the second sentence helps either, because as far as I know, there are no "requirements of law" providing that an employer must give you leave when you enlist.

Q: My Husband is in The military he wants to take full custody completely away from me because I cheated on him. Can he?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Military Law for Georgia on
Answered on Oct 8, 2015

I don't know military law but in civil law it does not sound like he would have much of a chance. The judge ultimately will decide what is in the best interests of the child. Cheating on him may have an impact on whether or not your receive alimony but it should not determine child custody and visitation unless there was a situation that caused harm to the child.

Q: Can my judge court order me not to see my husband

Answered on Sep 9, 2015

Short answer is yes. It really depends on the circumstances and what is going on with both parties. A judge may be stating that it is in the best interest of your husband to not have you in his presence due to drug matters. It is really hard to say more without additional facts.

Q: In California does the defendant have to serve papers to the plaintiff after the plaintiff serves the defendant

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Military Law for California on
Answered on Sep 1, 2015

The answer to your question is no. The defendant does not have to serve a response/answer on the plaintiff after the plaintiff serves a summons, complaint/petition on the defendant.

However, it sounds to me the plaintiff here is going about it completely wrong. The fact the mom goes on deployment does not affect the dad's obligation to pay support.
