What i am not understanding though, is when I asked the cop if he had a warrant for the blood test he reply was "I could get one but I don't feel like it" How can I be charged with something when I was not even placed under arrest? Also, when he said that he didn't feel like getting a warrant
You are definitely going to get charged. When you refuse the test there is an assumption that you were under the influence and you will be charged under the general impairment section of the DUI law. Additionally because he did not take the test the law says that your license will be suspended for...Read more »
Several times I have found her at the top of the steps outside my door listening to conversations when I have company. She has also brought up many things that she should not know about but has learned from eavesdropping. I live in PA. What can I do?
Not much other than to say she has to understand that for you to feel comfortable staying there she has to not be listening in. At the same time, don't have conversations of any private nature in the room where the door to the hallway is, or drape an elegant curtain over that door with an...Read more »
While it seems unusual to work another shift after the decision has been made to suspend an employee, it doesn’t seem unreasonable. If possible, check with your human resources department to see what the policies are for suspensions (does the suspension period start on the day the decision is...Read more »
I have a friend who is currently incarcerated in a Pennsylvania county prison. In 2019 he was released after serving 4.5 years of an 10 year sentence. Only after about 8 month he picked up another charge for the same thing which is firearms he did not operate the firearm just got caught with them.... Read more »
I had to get the ticket in the mail because "their system was down" when I got pulled over. The ticket is only for 5mph over the limit although he said he got my speed at 81mph in a 65 zone and was doing me a favor. He also could have said something that my inspection was a few days out...

Small things like the color of the car won't get you off the hook. Only 5 over, is something you can fight though if the Judge gets the idea you were actually going 16 over they may sock it to you. You have to look at it from a points perspective--are you better off taking the 5 over or...Read more »
I have reached out multiple times to the leasing office, but they have not helped. It's becoming unlivable for me - giving me a constant headache - and the smell is seeping into my furniture and clothes. What can I do?
I am entering a mortgage with my girlfriend, who solely put down the deposit on the house we are getting. I am on the mortgage only because my income was needed. For all intents and purposes, I am a tenant, not a homeowner. How do I waive the rights to the property to ensure that it is only in... Read more »
I don't know if any restitution you have paid can be refunded to you, if you have won on appeal. Perhaps you need to file a motion with the trial court, attached the appellate decision, and request a hearing.
Hello, we have filed an I-130 and an I-485 for my mother-in-law who is currently in the US on a visitor's visa. UPS confirmed that the documents reached the USCIS office months ago, but we haven't heard anything from them. At what point are those forms considered "pending",... Read more »
The Adjustment of Status is considered "pending"/in processing from the time it is received. So your mother-in-law is not accruing unlawful presence from the time the application was received. Best wishes!
You need to contact a lawyer to help you. In short, the Will needs to be probated and an estate opened. You, as Executrix, would then execute a deed, unless the property is already in the Trust. As indicated, you need to meet with a lawyer to review everything.
My mother passed away last year, and we didn’t have any issues with inheritance, except for a 1099 showing dividends from an employee stock plan. The account is very small, so it would be more expensive to probate it then it’s actually worth. We’d like to simply ignore it, but we know we’ll... Read more »
I'm on disabled adult child with survivor benefits. If I choose to go back to school to make an actual living and I apply for SSD retirement benefits in 30 something years will my benefits match the ones I currently get because I "dipped" into social security already?
Right now the amount you are paid is based off your parent’s earnings record. If you go to school and then work until you reach retirement age you will draw a retirement amount based on your own earnings record. Your current benefits will stop once you are deemed able to work by Social Security -...Read more »
Was your correct address on your license because that is likely where it was sent. Call a lawyer as it can be checked online. If it has not been filed, there is a 30 day statute of limitations so it may be too late to file it now, if it hasn't yet been filed. Don't ignore it because if it...Read more »
When we moved into our rental, the landlord provided a fridge with the house. We ended up inheriting a new fridge and the landlord took the fridge that was in the house so we could use ours. Now that we’re moving out, the landlord is saying that we either need to leave the fridge that we got or... Read more »
We were given 30 days to move out, via a text message and during the move out some things were left behind. The landlord send my roommate a text message threatening legal action if we didn't get the stuff out. He couldn't even ask politely if it was just missed in the move.
So get the stuff out now. So he isn't polite--but he's not saying he had someone move it and is charging you. Get it done, ASAP. If the place is locked you need to make arrangments to get in to move it.
