  1. You would contact the head of the probation department.
  2. Possession and ownership are not the same thing. If he had access to the gun, particularly if it was in his home, he can be charged with possession of the gun. So I think you owe RetiredinVa an apology, because he was right.
  3. From what you have posted, nothing illegal was done, unfair maybe, but not illegal. They would owe you for the time you were there.
  4. It depend upon the bylaws. If that is what the bylaws say, it is legal for them to exclude her.
  5. You are in over your head. Hire an attorney to begin eviction proceedings to get them out. Then sell the house, you have no business being a landlord, it will only bring you further grief.
  6. If they have made their decision, stand by it.
  7. Depends upon if they charge him with a felony 459 or misdemeanor 459. Misdemeanor is 1 year in the county jail. Felony 459 is a minimum of 1 year in state prison up to 20 years. These penalties are per count. Whether you son is eligible for diversion will depend upon the DAs office and what they choose to charge him with.
  8. Do you have a question?
  9. As far as I know, there is no law preventing an individual from preparing legal documents for himself. While this is true, with a deed there are two parties, and while it may not be the unauthorized practice of law, for himself, It may be to the second party. And if there are loan documents involved, the lender will require an attorney as well. which is why the answer to your question is a modified yes/no. Who pays for the lawyer, is the subject of negotiation.
  10. No Georgia attorneys follow these boards that I am aware of. You best bet is to call around to some real estate attorneys in Georgia and ask.
  11. Ignore, I just saw the additional posts.
  12. slightly possible in some states, but no in most states.
  13. I hope your attorney has explained to you that your workers compensation company will want to be reimbursed from any recovery you obtain from the commercial policy.
  14. It's is too late to appeal. He has already been cut some slack, and he showed how reliable he was by skipping out, so I doubt a sentence reduction, is possible at this point. He will be lucky if the judge does not throw the book at him. It is time to move on and get on with your life without him.
  15. Couple of questions: Have they admitted liability or is this just go away money. 2. What is your total medical bills. 3. Have you completely recovered?
  16. I assume you meand November 24 2016 not 2017. You take the grandmother to family law court by suing her for custody. I assume you weren't married to the mother, but that paternity was established in the child support action.
  17. A contract can exist before the sale is final. You back out, you will be in breach of the contract and subject to lawsuit for damages.
  18. I don't know very little about legal matters but just very frustrated about this whole scenario. So make them pay by suing them in small claims court.
  19. Here's a very interesting case on hot pursuits/exigent circumstances, O'Brien v. City of Grand Rapids, 23 F.3d 990 (6th Cir. 1994,)there the Supreme Court defined the requisite exigent circumstances necessary to apprehend a suspect within someone's house. You mean the 6th circuit, not the Supreme Court.
  20. My only point was that we only know that she was told that he ran towards the house, she provided no further details, so anything further is merely speculation with at least several plausible scenarios, some of which would justify the police entry and some would not.
  21. And we do not know that the suspect did not break into the cabin and went out a window or door on the other side, either. I doubt the OP knows either, so lets not jump to unfounded conclusions.
  22. I thought I corrected that, but yes couldn't care less where the sheriff's office is located.
  23. The filing fee for small claims court is minimal. I would suggest you invite a reporter to the hearing. Other than your time, the filing fee and service of process fee would be all you would be at risk. As a former small claims court judge in California, I could not care less where the sheriff's office was located relative to the courthouse. Just be sure you meet the filing deadline.
  24. I am sure there are a lot of things you can do, but the most productive one at this point would be to find another organization you can volunteer for.
  25. Do you have a legal question, or do you just want to vent?
