Daniel P Leavitt's answer It sounds like it is a criminal misdemeanor reckless driving charge and not a simple speeding ticket. Either way, I don't think there is anything you can do. You have ten days to appeal after a conviction and 60 days to file a motion to reopen. Some judges bend the 60 day rule but I don't know any judge that will bend anywhere near 3 years ago.
Kevin M Rogers' answer You will be fine. THAT’S what Chapter 13 is for. It would be a different matter if the Mortgagee could prove that your house had NO equity. Because it is the equity in your house that the court will find is necessary for your rehabilitation.
Your lawyer will amend your Plan, adding a new, secured creditor - the same Mortgagee except the amount he will be owed is EXACTLY the amount, including interest of the arrears. You will pay this through the Plan, through the Trustee and it will...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Even though your female friend has not told her side of the story here, this appears to be another "he said she said" situation. Unless I miss my guess, your female friend would probably say that you gave the dog to her, and that she never said she would return the dog "whenever you were ready." Accordingly, there appears to be no way to resolve this issue short of expensive litigation. Whether or not you will win or "be able to get him back" is impossible to know.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Sure sounds like extortion to me. However, since you think "extortion" is the opposing counsel's "negotiation tactic," and since you also have a lawyer, you are advised to instruct your lawyer to file a criminal complaint against the PARTY (not his lawyer) who filed the bogus criminal complaint against you.
F. Paul Maloof's answer Since you father died without a Will, the Virginia Code's provisions of Intestate Succession control the distribution of his estate. The Virginia Code's provisions for Intestate Succession are long and complicated. It would be best for you to hire a lawyer to provide you with a written opinion relating to your questions. This public website is not an appropriate and confidential way to provide an opinion of Virginia law.
Paula Hough's answer You should reach out to the Pennsylvania DMV. It will tell you how to come into compliance in PA and clear up your suspension(s) there so that you'll be okay to get your license in Virginia.
Any person who (i) threatens injury to the character, person, or property of another person [or] (ii) accuses him of any offense...and thereby extorts money, property, or pecuniary benefit...from him or any other person, is guilty of a Class 5 felony.
In addition to a potential extortion violation, there are other charges for which someone could be charged if they falsely accused someone else of a crime. You should reach...
F. Paul Maloof's answer Generally in Virginia, the initial court date is a first return date at which time the Judge asks if all the parties are in attendance before the court and whether the defendant admits to the claims brought by the plaintiff or disputes the claims. If the defendant admits the claims and the amounts, the Judge enters a "consent judgment." If the defendant disputes the claims, the Judge will set a date for the trial some time in the future. As a defendant, you have a right to ask the Judge to...
Bryan J. Jones' answer It's legal as long as it's public and there's no expectation of privacy. You should be careful because the situation could escalate. Most people don't like having cameras in their faces.
Paula Hough's answer By statute, the judge will be required to sentence you to 10 days of mandatory incarceration IF you are found guilty of DUI with that elevated blood alcohol content. You should contact an attorney right away (or ask for the Court to appoint you an attorney). There are many legal issues with DUI cases, which could lead to your jail time getting reduced or your charge being reduced/dismissed.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This sounds like some sort of an insider electronic hacking situation. If the amount of money is worth it, try hiring a lawyer to take up the job of fighting with the USAA bureaucracy instead of you having to do it. The first order of business would be to move all the money you still have at USAA to another unaffiliated bank that you can trust. Try to get a cashier's check, cash it out at another bank where you are well known, and then take the case to a third bank and open a new account. Best...
Jerry Lutkenhaus' answer Since he is over 55 with less than a high school education and he cannot do his prior work, he should have a great chance. I base this opinion on 35 years of Social Security Disability practice in the Richmond, Virginia area.
F. Paul Maloof's answer A lot depends on what is stated in the lease about the amount of time for the landlord to give notice to the tenant to vacate. If you have a written lease that ends on 6/22/19, there may be no need to give any notice as that date will be the end of the lease term. The sale of the property has no effect on the end of the lease term.
Richard Sternberg's answer You need to get a lawyer to read all the contracts. I've seen on TV that there is an ongoing scam in which landowners purport to sell mobile homes for extremely attractive prices, but the land lease on the property is where the landlord makes the money, and the landlord asserts a security interest in the home, so that the buyer actually owns nothing of value and cannot sell it without entrapping the buyer in the overpriced lease. By avoiding legal review, you may have just bought into the...
