The bill of sale may not have been actually consummated, especially if you have the vehicle... Read more »

Q: MI:can a daycare who has their place as a bus stop for the local pub school now say it’s for kids in their program only?

Parents would be there to pick up their children, using it solely as a bus stop.

Brent T. Geers answered on Aug 22, 2019

You'd need to contact the school district's transportation office. But I would think from the child care facility's perspective, if the bus stop is on their property, they are incurring significant liability, and absolutely can limit access to that bus stop to enrolled children.

Dept of safety came up with 3 Past offences all dated in the 90s. The info is wrong. Like the phone number doesn't exist,the county is wrong,the ticket number isn't right. I've called around and tried to get it straightened out but no one can find the tickets the dmv have on their file.

Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 12, 2019

You probably need to request an Administrative Hearing before a Department of Safety Hearing Officer. Hopefully it is not too late, and you will need an attorney.

Q: I have a question concerning how to get money overseas.

Is there more than one way to get money to somebody from their bank, over seas who is not a citizen of that country? I was told that the only way they could do it was to go thru somebody else's account and that person had to send it to them from their account. I think its a scam, am I right?

Tim Akpinar answered on Aug 4, 2019

You could be. It's probably best to stick with the mainstream methods through reputable banks. But no matter who handles it, the process is always susceptible to threat. Good luck

It isn't clear if you're being sued, or you anticipate being sued. If you're being sued, attorneys should be able to advise you of an hourly figure for defending the matter when you show them the summons and complaint. Don't delay there because if you were served with papers, regardless of the... Read more »

On its face, it appears to be an unpleasant encounter brought about by suspicion, and not a courteous manner in which to treat a store visitor.
