No question is asked here. If you are questioning who has the legal authority to say what happens with a loved one's remains you should look to Section 2108.81 of the Ohio Revised Code.

You should contact a personal injury / medical malpractice attorney immediately. The statute of limitations is quite short so it is important to get in to see a lawyer right away.

There's no way around the tint laws, but it is also unlawful for an officer to search your vehicle based upon a guitar case no matter how sketchy it looks.

Yes, he can get in a lot of trouble seeing how the baby is proof that he committed a criminal offense known as unlawful sexual conduct with a minor (commonly known as statutory rape).

It's unclear what you have been cited for, and we certainly cannot speak to the motives of the government in citing you, but considering you've been summonsed to court I would suggest you hire an attorney.

Q: I want my ex abuser to stay away from my home.If I tell him in writing and continues to come to my home
Andrew Popp
Andrew Popp answered on May 19, 2021

Depending on the background facts, you may want to involve law enforcement. You are essentially looking for an injunction / civil protection order. I suggest speaking with a local attorney about your options and the procedural requirements.

Q: I got a letter to appear in court. I have not received any other written communication.

I did get a message from my babysitter that someone stopped by about a complaint about my chickens but no one has addressed me in any way.

Andrew Popp
Andrew Popp answered on May 11, 2021

No question is asked here. If you received a notice from the Court to appear, be there. Otherwise a warrant may be issued for your arrest. I suggest sitting down with an attorney to review your situation in detail.

Best of luck.

I'm sorry, but I don't see a question here. You may want to rephrase. Your girlfriend should either speak to a criminal defense attorney about her case, or her public defender if she qualifies and one was appointed.

Best of luck.

Q: If I sign a quick claim deed, does it admit that I own that land?

My mother passed away 26 years ago with a will and a trust fund, so we did not have to go through probate. Apparently there was a plot of land in her name that was not included in her will.

Matthew Williams answered on Mar 24, 2021

A quit claim deed simply gives away any interest in the property an individual may have. It doesn't involve offering any guarantee as to the condition or title or the amount, or even existence, of an interest in property. So, no, it would not operate as an admission of having an ownership interest.

Q: I received an email from a payday loan company stating that I will be arrested for not paying loan.They state fed. char

They advise charges include, Theft by Deception, Violation of Federal Banking Regulations and Collateral check Fraud. This loan is probally 5 or 6 years old. They advise if I don't respond within 24 hours, I will be arrested. It came in my Spam mailbox. Can they do this?

Matthew Williams
Matthew Williams answered on Mar 12, 2021

That's a scam. The law specifically prohibits threatening to arrest debtors in connection with debt collection attempts. If you did commit some kind of fraud on a payday lender, they would need to report the matter to the police, who would contact you regarding any potential criminal penalties.

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. What you describe appears to be some kind of update on an appeal you made in connection with a claim. If you recently appealed a claim that involved medical services, that's what it might be. Good luck

Q: Can charges be amended after a citation is written?

I had a single car accident and was transported to the hospital for tests, where they drew blood. I was charged with failure to control. Can they use that blood to amend the charge to something else based on the blood screen?

Yes, they can. If they are going to find drugs or alcohol in your blood, they will likely charge you with OVI as well.
