The officer gave my son a lecture after hearing both sides. I as the parent broke up the altercation. The officer said if they come back everyone on the property will be arrested. He told my son you don't want your father arrested or yourself. My main question is since my son is only 17 a... Read more »
As far as the altercation is concerned, the individuals involved would be the ones subject to arrest. When police arrived, anyone who fails to follow lawful commands or acts unruly would also be subject to arrest. If you supply prohibited substances to the minors or allow them to use them while on...Read more »
This was an existing fence in a portion of my backyard when I purchased my home in 2003. It fell down during Katrina and my neighbors added 2x4 support boards to the existing frame and hung it back up. It’s an eyesore and it’s rotten and falling down. I have written them and tried to discuss... Read more »
The fence belongs to (i.e., is owned by) whoever's property it is on. There may be a zoning/building ordinance in your city/county that requires that the "smooth" side of the fence be on one side or the other, you would need to check that with your local planning and/or building...Read more »

You need to hire an attorney immediately in order to make sure your rights as a parent are preserved. You do not say why your son was in the hospital or the reason that the hospital called CPS, so I cannot speak to that. CPS will eventually put you on a parenting plan that you should follow. That...Read more »
A complaint would need to filed with the court asking that he be found in contempt and asking for the back support, attorney’s fees, and expenses. The court can order that he be incarcerated, as well, but whether or not you receive the full amount in lump sum depends on how much is owed.
I filed chapter 7 in 2019. A utilities provider has been contacting me for payment after I provided them with documentation showing their account was included in bankruptcy. It is my understanding this is illegal debt collection activity and I'd like to know if it would be beneficial to take... Read more »
Until recently, any creditor who attempted to collect, by phone calls, statements by mail, or otherwise, any debt that was discharged in bankruptcy would almost certainly be sanctioned (made to pay money to the debtor) by the bankruptcy court.
Last year, the US Supreme Court revised that...Read more »
I filed chapter 7 in 2019. I included several loans that were owed directly to the institutions (not gov't backed like Navient/Sallie Mae). These accounts were turned over to collections prior to me filing bankruptcy and were sent a bankruptcy notice. Am I still on the hook for the balances?
It's the nature of the claim itself, and not who holds the claim, at the time of the bankruptcy filing, that determines how it will be handled in the bankruptcy. Claims being pushed by debt collectors are common, and just as commonly, are discharged in bankruptcy.

I accidentally backed into a mailbox one day. Luckily the mailbox wasn't damaged, but the rear blinker light on the passenger side of the vehicle cracked open and the bulb was shattered. Even if I put a new bulb in, the bulb itself will be exposed and visible. If a police officer sees this,... Read more »
A Mississippi attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Probably, because in many places, that could prevent passing safety inspection. For more precise state-specific standards, a local attorney would know DMV safety checklist best. Good luck
