You are charged with a serious Felony. Hire a competent attorney immediately. You may be able to attack the earlier convictions, so that sentencing will not be a Felony. Obviously you need to get ready for a Preliminary Hearing and possibly later, Trial. If the State does not agree to a 2nd or...Read more »
Sometimes yes, sometimes in an area with drug residue. The dog's alert is what the cop looks for, probably in the general area where the dog alerted. The cop/handler is the witness, not the dog. If you believe there was an illegal search, hire a competent attorney to move to suppress evidence...Read more »
So.... It appears that you made a new agreement to perform repairs yourself. That is, no breach of contract apparently. And it is doubtful you would collect anyway. You made a mistake modifying the Contract yourself, and possibly should have walked. Always have an attorney in any real...Read more »
I have to file an answer by Monday 9/16/19, I can't afford a lawyer and need to ask for transitional alimony. Another thought I had was to file a motion for mediation in hopes of not having to ask for alimony. What should I do and how do I do all of this without a lawyer?
If there is any property, debts or children involved, you need an attorney. You will need to make the counter-claim with the answer, if you have grounds. More importantly I hope there are no grounds against you and do not admit there are Irreconcilable Differences without an acceptable...Read more »
My sister’s boyfriend committed suicide and named her as the executor of his very specific will. She has completed more than half of the administration aspects of the Will after receiving the Letters Testamentary by the court. The Will was prepared by an attorney per TN statue. The Will...

No, the Executor can continue performing her duties as a Fiduciary. But if a Will Contest is successful, the Executor will have to account for all property and cash. She needs to be careful, but if it is not time critical, she might wait to see if a Contest is actually filed. She has a duty to...Read more »
She got it fixed and texted me she would just deduct from rent. I know this isn’t legal but what is Landlords recourse? Can I withhold deposit for the repairs? It was a matter of a few hours, not even 24hrs to remedy on my pair.
If she doesn't pay the correct amount of rent- that is a breach of the lease. She can only withhold rent in very limited circumstances, and as you say, it does not appear that she gave you enough advance notice or time to perform any repairs ( this assumes you are located in an area covered by the...Read more »
My mother does not have a p.o.a. shes recently been diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer's. Her bills are not getting paid. She's not eating. She refuses help and meals on wheels. I don't have the income to pay for court costs, how do I take over so she's financially safe and gets the care she... Read more »
You do not have to spend your money- the cost of a "conservatorship" should be paid from her assets. You will need a sworn statement/affidavit from her doctor confirming the diagnosis of dementia but also stating the doctor's opinion as to whether she can manage her own affairs ( do this first...Read more »
Probably not a problem. Journal entry is not required and the Seal can be affixed later, but needs to be there prior to the instrument being used or relied upon. Notaries should sign their full names, but often do not.
You need to talk to your Arizona Lawyer. Possibly you have violated your Probation Order. However you should be able to drive anywhere with the Interlock Device. If you are found driving without it, it will be bad.
Absolutely. Many Law Enforcement Officers drive their own vehicles all the time, and still conduct stops and enforce laws. They may show a badge or activate their lights, or just follow you until you stop.
The cop pulled me over as I was turning in my friend driveway so it was private property. When I told him no to the search he already had a k9 cop present plus another cop car present for minor traffic stop. He ran the k9 around the car without my permission and they said the dog hit but he never... Read more »
The police can stop a car with probable cause - such as a minor traffic violation. If you do not consent to a search, the police can use a K9 so long as the use of the dog does not prolong the traffic stop. If the K9 hits on the car, that is probable cause to search the interior. If you have been...Read more »
My husband is "too busy right now" to draw up a will. We moved to Tennessee from Florida in Sept 2018 and bought a house with a mortgage. He has two daughters with families in Colorado. I am their step-mother. If he dies, does his personal property automatically go to me, his wife, by Tennessee law?
A surviving spouse is entitled to certain household goods and the family automobile if the deceased spouses dies without a will. Review Tennessee Code Section 30-2-101. The surviving spouse has other entitlements ( a homestead allowance and a "years support, etc ) but all of these are NOT...Read more »
Your facts have some mistakes. But I believe what you are asking is whether the daughter can inherit from both her actual Father and her adopted Father. No.... Once she is adopted, that is her Father and she has no relationship with her biological Father from the Adoption Order
If the car had insurance then the claim can be turned into the owner's insurance company. Also make sure your company is aware of the loss. If you have insurance the claim can either be handled under your uninsured/ underinsured motorist coverage- or if you have full coverage then your company...Read more »
If the bank is threatening foreclosure- that usually means they have a lien on the property, and if you acquired that property by inheritance, you acquired the property SUBJECT to the Banks lien: this means that if you want to keep the property, you will have to pay the loan. You don't owe the...Read more »
