I don't understand your question. You don't indicate that there are any criminal charges. If someone merely dies from pneumonia, that, in and of itself, has nothing to do with the criminal law system, so how would you be guilty of tampering with evidence or spoilation of evidence? There has to...Read more »
What extra steps do I need to take as a 16 year old if my Guardian denies me permission to be emancipated, but my biological father agrees and my biological mother is missing? My guardian is my great aunt, I have a job at a sushi place, my father is offering me a home with him, and I do not have my... Read more »
You state no reasons for needing Emancipation, which is rarely a good status. But virtually any lawyer can file the Request with Juvenile Court. Without a Driver's License and transportation, it will probably be denied.
You will have plenty of time to be a responsible taxpayer in two...Read more »
They also say to turn off the AC because of the dust. I am a heart patient with COPD and other ailments and I can not take the heat and dust, and have nowhere else to go. The carpet in my apartment doesn't need to be replaced either.
It is doubtful. But if you have a Tennessee Driver's License, you need to be concerned about losing your License for Lack of Proof of Responsibility by having pled guilty. You might file a Motion to Set Aside your Guilty Plea. It is a longshot, but losing your License will be painful....Read more »
Additionally, I need to see what can be done to hold my ex in contempt for not returning my son by the date/time he was supposed too, not allowing a family member to pick up my son and bring him to me on the date he was due back, not allowing him to speak to me while he was gone for 43 day (maybe...

From that description, you have a significant number of potential legal issues. I recommend you consult with a local family law attorney. You would need to transfer the case to Tennessee before you could file for contempt. Your easier route for the contempt action could be filing for contempt in...Read more »
No, LEO's are like any other witness. Oftentimes they are given more credibility than they deserve, but they must show up, testify, and be cross-examined, before their testimony is evidence for the State/Government. If they are subpoenaed and are absent, they can be held in contempt like...Read more »
No that is not grounds for abandonment. If possible get an agreed Irreconcilable Differences Divorce. Sometimes you can send papers through the Spouse's Family. Being in the Military has its own special
requirements, so you need a competent attorney to represent you now. This...Read more »
The owner must file and serve a Detainer Warrant, get a Judgment for Possession, then if you do not leave after 10 days, get a Writ of Possession executed. However the Contract for Purchase may alter this or cause you potential liability. Hire a competent attorney to examine the consequences of...Read more »
Apparently there is no Parole Eligibility Date. Read the Judgment of Conviction to make sure. So 15 years has to be served. But I would have thought he might get 15% off for good behavior with that conviction. I may be mistaken but the Judgment must be examined.
The house is being sold in foreclosure. The tenant found a new home and told the realtor that he could be out of the house by July 31, 2019. The realtor says that the closing is earlier and that he must leave by July 22. One concern is that the owner had fired the management company but told the... Read more »
Whoever owns it takes it subject to the tenant already there. The tenant can ignore the agent and just wait until a Detainer Warrant is filed on him. I recommend paying rent but not leaving until he wants to, or until a Sessions Judge takes possession from him.
The increase in value since the marriage is marital property. It sounds like you may wish to reconsider your divorce action. Obviously you have nothing to gain by divorce at this time and must pay him to agree. You need a competent attorney to put you in the right position to get him to want a...Read more »
I took some people to court for doing damages to my car. I was awarded $4900 for property damages. The people involved was my ex-husband and his girlfriend. My attorney wrote it up as support / alimony to prevent it from being charged off on a bankruptcy if they filed for that later in the future.... Read more »
I am not sure what you were awarded, as it sounds like an agreed judgment for divorce. If in the divorce, it is enforced through contempt. But if awarded for tort, then you may never collect. A judgment lien may be your only realistic option. Sometimes you can do post judgment discovery....Read more »
I was actually going 15+ over the speed limit going with the flow of traffic. The officer let me off at going 4 MPH over. I would like to avoid getting points on my record. What should I do? This was in Memphis TN.
The Officer was being very kind to you while still enforcing law. 4 MPH over the limit is usually not reportable at all, and does not generate MVR Points for the lase year. Either pay it or go to Court and plead guilty. The Judge might have an alternative, but it is doubtful. His Honor will...Read more »
We initially contracted the company to pour concrete on our patio, but after taking the down payment, they only pour a small corner. We have called and demanded them to either finish the job or return the money, but they only say they will get the job done. This has led on for a whole year, can we... Read more »
You have a 6 year SOL, unless a contract says otherwise. Yes, you can sue for Breach of Contract, and maybe other causes of actions. But you need to know exactly who to sue and where to serve them. Good luck collecting any judgment. The best you may be able to do is get a judgment, then file...Read more »
i was fired with no notice no severance no reason except they needed to make room for another salary from an employee at another store and I was the last kitchen manager at this location. 2 weeks before this I had a conversation with the admin about my cooks going to work at the other location and...

Your facts would be a weak cause of action at best. If you complained to the Department of Labor prior to termination, it might have been a decent case. Other lawyers might disagree. You have a 1 year SOL.
