Likely not, as most people are not put in jail for tickets. That being said, as long as you are still paying towards your older charge, you should still be good to go. As to the car accident, I would encourage you to reach out to a lawyer, as you may be entitled to compensation if the other driver...Read more »
It really depends. Sometimes, a prosecutor may do away with the ticket because of the circumstances; however, there would need to be more information. I would highly encourage you to reach out to a criminal defense and personal injury to discuss further, not just for the ticket, but also for being...Read more »
Quite possibly. I would highly encourage you to reach out to an attorney to talk more about the facts and circumstances. Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. Most lawyers offer free consultations to see how we can help out.
I was booked, arrested, had my vehicle towed, and had to pay a bondsman to get me out of jail for the misdemeanor charge of poss. Of paraphernalia. Is that an arrestable offense when it's the only thing they've charged you with?
Potentially. Security personnel have an obligation to assist and maintain people's safety within the grounds of the premises. I would highly encourage you to reach out to a lawyer to discuss further.

his estate. I have never seen his will or anything. She claims he has a lot of debt. She is wanting my social security # because she cashed his check for December the month he died. She states she needs that so they can take the funds out of the estate. Thank You Annette
The only way that she can legitimately be put in charge of the estate is if she already filed the paperwork with a chancery court and the court appointed her as the executrix over your father's estate.
I plead not guilty to a poss. of paraphernalia charge. I was never asked about an attorney and the next time I went to court I was put on the stand to testify. I apologized to the judge for being nervous stating I knew nothing about a trial taking place today because if I did I would have had an... Read more »
Yes, you have an absolute right to have an attorney there to assist you. If you cannot afford one, then the court is supposed to go through an analysis and determine whether you qualify for a court appointed attorney. The other thing that I am seeing is that they made you testify, which you have...Read more »
I am a U.S. citizen and resident of the state of Mississippi and I have been threatened to be sued for child support by a non U.S. citizen but Philippine citizen for a child that I do not recognize as mine and my name is not on the birth certificate
You can be sued; however, it is more of a question as to whether the mother can establish paternity. If so, then you may be on the hook for child support; if not, then you would not have to worry about child support unless you hold yourself out to be the father.
You posted in Contracts, and you are correct. A lease is a contract. But if you reposted under Landlord-Tenant, you might have a better chance of a Mississippi L-T attorney seeing your question. Good luck
Off of 12 w right when you are at to get on the Hwy I heard a boom my airbags deyployed my passenger side busted out. My car was spinning out of control no cars were on the Hwy on my side when I hit the barrier it slowed me down got control turned blinkers nobody would stop. Called for police and... Read more »
Pay over $600 per month. However, I have only received 3 $50 payments. Why am I not receiving the amount that was ordered in the judgment? Why am I not consistently receiving payments? Should the payments come on the same day every month?
It sounds like you may need to consider talking to a family law attorney to file a contempt action against the father for failure to adequately pay child support, as he should be paying the full amount on a regular basis.
My mother did sign it and It was notarized, but never filed anywhere. At that time I think my mother had mild dementia. Now she has severe Alzheimer's. Does my sister need an affidavit from my mother's physicians as to incompetence? Is this a legal document, seeing that she did it at home... Read more »
It doesn’t need to be filed anywhere in order to be legal, but no attorney in this forum can give you an opinion regarding the legality of it without reviewing the document and engaging in a consultation regarding the circumstances of its execution. Also, whether a doctor’s opinion is needed...Read more »
There are multiple issues presented in this scenario. First, I would be curious as to the underlying charges, since you are entitled to reasonable bail (unless it is a capital crime). The other issue is the one that you pointed out, which is that they have a certain time frame to bring your case to...Read more »
You really need to consider reaching out to a criminal defense lawyer, as there will likely be criminal charges coming down the pipeline. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to avoid jail time and having this go on you record. Feel free to reach out to any lawyer on here by clicking the...Read more »
The mothers soon to be ex husband wants custody of said child.. Because the mother ran off and left him with the child. And now the step father of child wants the "bio father" to sign rights off so he can adopt the child. Does the alleged bio father have any rights at all to sign off in the first... Read more »
Yes, even though bio father may not be on the birth certificate, he still has rights that he can pursue, which would in turn be superior to the stepdad. I would highly encourage you to reach out to a lawyer sooner rather than later, as these types of cases can get very nasty, very quickly. Feel...Read more »
Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done based on the facts presented. The child support will follow the child until he reaches 21, regardless of where he is living, who he is living with, or his lack of work or school.
You need to reach out to an attorney sooner, rather than later. The first thing that I wonder is whether you have already been convicted. Regardless, a lawyer may be able to help, but it is going to depend on the actual charge and current status of the case.
As a convicted felon, Mississippi law does not allow you to possess a firearm or any other type of deadly weapon. That being said, depending on the age of the conviction, as well as other factors, you may be able to get a certificate of rehabilitation, which would allow you to possess a firearm;...Read more »
