Michael Hales' answer I had a client who listed these with their real estate holdings. When the timeshare is alerted that you have filed for bankruptcy, you will have the ability to give the timeshare back to the resort. I'd recommend this because I had a client who did not do this. And while her existing maintenance fee bills were extinguished when she filed for bankruptcy, those annual maintenance fee bills accrued while the bankruptcy was pending. When she came out of bankruptcy, she had very large bills that she...

Glenn Smith Valdez's answer When a careless driving charge involves a crash, the cases are more complicated and difficult to deal with. Sometimes that complication can be used by a good attorney to help win the case. A great attorney will request all of the discovery, witness statements, video, crash reports. They will review everything and determine what the best possible outcome is. It may be a plea to a reduced charge such as failure to maintain a traffic lane, or it may be that the best solution is to go to trial and...

Richard Sternberg's answer The ICC has no jurisdiction in New Mexico. The United States withdrew its signatory status to the Rome Treaty.

You need a New Mexico lawyer.

Glenn Smith Valdez's answer It depends. In very rare cases, an officer will have a Summons issued to have you appear in court for a traffic violation. However, that typically is in situations where ther is a crash. You said you were pulled over. What did the officer tell you? Perhaps he or she just gave you a warning? Think back to the traffic stop, you may be able to remember what was said and answer the question yourself.
Glenn Smith Valdez's answer Without looking at your citation it is a difficult question to answer. You should contact the court and see what they can tell you about the situation. You are on the right track wanting to keep it off your driving record. The fine is very high as well and you should try to avoid paying that if possible. You may want to consider consulting with an experienced traffic ticket lawyer who can review the citation and give you a more accurate explanation
Jason Brooks' answer A person who registers someone else's trademark as a domain name hoping to later profit by reselling the domain name back to the trademark owner is known as a cybersquatter.

Suing under...
Timothy Denison's answer If you didn’t sign the contract hiring her as your attorney, don’t, and she is not your attorney. Unless there is some misunderstanding as to the scope of her representation and what she is doing for you, and you she determine whether this is the case first, you probably need to find a new lawyer and straighten out the representation.
Arun Arjan Melwani's answer Yes, but the stay will only last the during the bankruptcy proceeding and the creditor may ask that the Court to terminate the stay. The judge in the bankruptcy case will make that determination based on the type of bankruptcy you filed and the circumstances involved.
