Timothy Denison's answer Chapter 7 is likely the way to go for you since you have no assets. Chapter 13 is a wage earner repayment plan designed for people who have assets they could not otherwise keep. Contact a local bankruptcy attorney who can guide you through the process.
Allison Abilheira's answer You will have to go to whatever court originally handled the ticket- either the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal or the Municipal Court for the city/town who issued the ticket. Once you pay the ticket, you will then need to go to the DMV to pay the reinstatement of license fee ($151.50) to clear the suspension.
Neville Bedford's answer Your best avenue would be to engage an attorney practicing where the case is properly filed. There are myriad resources online for legal information, statutes, and case law along with many law schools that could provide you with the information you seek. However, a practicing attorney should be able to address these issues more quickly that you might, even if you had the time, money, and inclination to attend a law school.
Neville Bedford's answer It sounds like you would do well to secure an attorney to assist you in pursuing the issues you mention. Meet with an attorney to explore court options to establish custody and support, or if you have an M case open already, seek counsel to enforce the support order.
Allison Abilheira's answer Yes, you would just need to provide the court with a copy of your VA driving record, so that they can confirm that you have maintained a clean record for a total of three years between RI and VA.
Neville Bedford's answer It's nary impossible to determine whom may be lying about what on the scant information provided. If you are working with an attorney in your DCYF case, contact them. If you can afford to hire your own attorney, that is a great idea. There should also be a social worker assigned to the case that you may be able to speak with.
Thomas Briody's answer The prosecution does not have to introduce a weapon into evidence to obtain a first degree robbery conviction. If there is testimony or some other evidence that a weapon was used, that should be enough, as long as guilt is established beyond a reasonable doubt.
T. J. Jesky's answer If the lease agreement specifically does not allow changing the locks or making changes to the property, you are entitled to change the locks back and charge the tenant for the expenses incurred during the process. The cost is typically deducted from the deposit at the end of the tenancy. Read the lease to see if it does not changing the locks or making changes.
T. J. Jesky's answer My gosh, do you need to be hit by lightning first? Do you think if you wait another year, this attorney will wake-up and call you? It does not sound that you signed an engagement letter with this attorney. To determine if you have a malpractice case against this attorney, would depend on the damages you suffered, i.e., the statute limitations would prevent you to move forward with this case.
Go engage another attorney, if you believe you have a valid case!
Thomas Briody's answer If you have not been charged by information or indictment in the superior court within six months of your first appearance in district court, your attorney can move to have the district court complaint dismissed. But that does not mean your case is over. The Attorney General can still file an information or obtain an indictment after the complaint is dismissed. That's the reality. The only limit on bringing back the charges would be the statute of limitations, which is typically several...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer I am not an employment lawyer, but I am a Mediator and Arbitrator. My guess is that the Arbitrator wanted to see if you received unemployment benefits because, if you did, he would probably deduct the amount you received from any judgment in your favor. He would do that to avoid a double benefit to you by getting both UI benefits and damages.
Allison Abilheira's answer You do not qualify for the good driving record, as you need to have had your license for at least three years to be able to use the good driving statute. However, a judge may allow you to do community service or simply pay Court costs for your first ticket, so that it does not go on your driving record or insurance. You will need to go to court to do this. Do not pay the ticket by mail.
Thomas Briody's answer There is no simple answer. The law on entrapment is complex. In general, an officer cannot improperly induce someone to commit a crime. But it’s not illegal to offer the opportunity or chance to commit a crime. Example: “Wanna buy these drugs?” That’s okay.” “If I don’t get someone to buy these drugs, my source is going to kill me because I owe him money.” That’s not okay. The key is in the details. Police officers are not permitted to induce someone to commit a...
