Stan Glisson's answer Most important is there is generally a 30 day time limit from the date of sentencing to file notice of appeal. The court should have given you a sheet with appeal instructions, but if they didn't then call the court and ask the clerk. Or of course call the attorney who represented you in the case, or another attorney who practices criminal law and appeals.
Ashley Negrette's answer If you are a U.S. citizen you should contact an attorney for help.

The attorney should also explain the current risks of filing for someone who is undocumented.
Vincent J. Bernabei's answer If this is your son, you need a custody order. If there is already a custody order in a custody or divorce decree, then you should file a petition to modify the custody order. Usually, that has to be done in the same court that entered the custody order.

Salim U. Shaikh's answer If your employer's handbook required an employee to give two weeks notice or deduct 75 in lieu thereof then it need to be followed.

Brent Bowden's answer You can draft a will without a lawyer, but it is important to follow the formalities required by Washington Law (I am assuming you live in WA). Merely having it notarized is not sufficient to create a will in Washington State.
RCW 11.12.020 contains the requirements for witnesses.
Peter Munsing's answer Usually your employer. If it was your fault why would the person you hit have to pay? If you are at fault it's you (or your employer) who pay. If it's the other person's fault, contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn for the county where it happened--they give free consults.
Eric Steven Day's answer The bonus that you received was in relation to work that was performed in NC, therefore, NC can tax you in relation to that income. If the income was produced or "earned" in that state's jurisdiction, that state has the right to tax that income. The other way that a state would be allowed to tax the income that you earned is if you were a resident of that state when you received it.

Salim U. Shaikh's answer Agreement that you mentioned above has created a relationship of tenant with LL. LL has to abide by the terms of agreement and rules of tenancy that makes you eligible to be served a prior written and formally delivered notice to vacate LL property.

Richard Sternberg's answer Many lawyers practicing International Trade law have contacts around the world and can research for qualified lawyers in foreign countries.
