Andrea Rogers' answer Usually that means you can get the problem fixed (repair the broken tail-light, for example) and bring proof to court and show the judge, who might dismiss the ticket or reduce the fine. "Fix-it" tickets are usually for non-moving, no-point violations like "Failure to Register Vehicle" or "Equipment Violation" (broken tail-light) which is not going to show up on your driving record anyway.
Kristen Thurmond's answer While this answer is a bit late, I still wanted to respond so if anyone else has a similar question they can find an answer.
Your best bet is to call an animal welfare group or animal control before entering property that is not yours, even if you believe it to be abandoned. You could be charged with trespassing or get injured. If the dog is simply outside and you can easily and safely provide food and water, you physically can do so but it is at your own risk of injury and criminal...
Kristen Thurmond's answer One solution to the school issue is to call the school and ask about how to receive information directly from them as a parent who lives out of town. Most schools have online portals to view grades, correspondence, attendance, etc. At the very least, make sure you're receiving letters, notices, etc. by mail or email. It may mean you have to take a trip to the school with your judgment and ID card before you can speak to anyone, though.
As for other issues, it sounds like you need to...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Two of the most common type of eviction cases are rent and possession and unlawful detainer. They are controlled by different statutes. Without knowing your situation, I have no way to determine what type of suit you could file.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Two primary types of cases in Missouri for a property owner to retake possession are rent-and-possession and unlawful detainer cases. “Eviction” can be the result of a judgment for possession. Those causes of action are controlled be different statutes. Rent-and-possession are filed when the lease term has not expired but the tenant isn’t paying rent. Unlawful detainer cases are filed against defendants who once had permission to occupy the property but have remained in possession...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Only a Missouri licensed attorney may represent another party in court. If you file on his behalf you’d be committed a misdemeanor, the unauthorized practice of law. Time to hire an attorney.
Lydia Seifner's answer Yes, if there are minor children involved you must file a form 14. However, you can state in the petition and in the final hearing that, by agreement, neither of you are requesting child support.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer The daycare staff member probably makes about ten bucks an hour. I hope your child recovers. A bruise is serious, but if your child was not harmed in a way requiring medical attention it might not make sense to sue. Unfortunately, personal injury attorneys who take cases on a contingency (percentage) basis will generally only sue if there are significant medical damages. I wish you the best and hope you have found a new daycare facility.
If you are asking how long a parent can have legal custody of a child, then custody over a child continues until the child is eighteen. If a disabled, adult child requires care beyond the age of eighteen, then the matter should be addressed in probate court with an guardianship case.
If you are asking how long a case actually goes, then most courts will allow a case to be continued 3 times before they get fed up with it and set a final trial...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer "Good cause is defined as a reasonable excuse for being unable to appear for an asylum interview. What may be a reasonable excuse for one applicant may not be reasonable when looking at the circumstances of another applicant. In reviewing whether there is good cause for your failure to appear at your interview, the asylum office considers the facts and circumstances of each case individually. Repeated requests to reschedule are discouraged and may affect the determination of good cause."...
Jennifer Sheila Kornblum's answer If your daughter and her husband are cooperative, they can sign a Quitclaim Deed transferring their interest in the property to you and your husband. You will need to record the deed when it has been signed and notarized.
Andrea Rogers' answer You can call the court clerk in Lincoln County and ask if a court appearance is required or can you just plead guilty and pay the fine. I expect that you will have to appear in court for this type of ticket. If so, the judge will sentence you and determine the amount of the fine. If you plead guilty, points will be added to your driving record and your car insurance rates may increase. The judge might require you to do community service, attend driving school, etc.
