Tim Akpinar answered on Sep 22, 2020

You would need to check with them as to who their databases are shared with and who has access to them. But even if it was to show up in a search, there is no fault or wrongdoing in being a victim. Good luck

A Tennessee attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for four weeks.

A Kentucky attorney could best advise, but your question remains open for two weeks. Is it possible you mean a "HIPAA" release? If so, that is a form that a patient must sign before their health information can be shared with others. Good luck

Unsure of your question. Title is not transferred until the State DOS issues a new Certificate of Title.

There is a close-in-age exception which probably applies in your case, if that's what you mean. But your mother may well be able to get him in trouble under other criminal statutes, so stay away from him.

Ronald J. Eisenberg answered on Aug 31, 2020

It would depend on the program. If you get a certification from some place that no employer knows then don’t expect much weight to be given to it. You are better off going somewhere local and interning at a firm to get experience.

how do you check on a application for concealed permit after you have taken the written test , fire range test, finger printing and paid application at driver station. also after filing appeal on purchase of a hand gun denial?

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 31, 2020

If you filed the Appeal, really a Declaratory Judgment Action, the State must put on grounds to continue the denial or agree to the issuance. Usually a cryptic charge with a date is given the applicant. Apparently something is wrong and you need an attorney.
