  1. recieved a summons regarding a credit card debt I have not been able to pay, due to some major issues happening over the past few years. How do I respond to the summons. I cannot pay the large amount owed. Can they take my assets?

      I quit paying the credit card due to the interest of 80 some dollars each month, along with $35 late fees. I was late and am still late on our house payments. Right now, I am trying to keep my head above water. There doesn't seem to be any help for the hardworking, who have always paid their bills. But now, that I am going thru difficulty, I can't find anything out there

  2. Hi lilmelissa54, Fallen makes a good point about not approaching the situation with such a focus on the parole officer lying to you. And given that you may not pass a drug test, it's likely in your best interests to stop using, and to consult with a criminal defense attorney. You can discuss your situation in more detail with your attorney, and he or she will determine what your next steps should be. You can find Michigan criminal defense attorneys in your area by using FindLaw's lawyer directory. In the meantime, you may also want to take a look at these helpful FindLaw articles that discuss what happens if you violate probation, as well as what happens in probation revocation hearings. Here are some great articles to get you started: Probation FAQ What's the Difference Between Parole and Probation? Good luck! The FindLaw.com Team
  3. Hi FaeFire, Did the court say that a guardian ad litem needs to be appointed? Or did you find that through your own research? A guardian ad litem is only used in certain, specific circumstances. Can you elaborate on your situation a bit in a follow-up post? In the meantime, you might want to consult with a family law attorney to discuss your situation in more detail. You can find Texas family law attorneys in your area by searching the FindLaw lawyer directory. You can also read more on both of these topics by checking out our divorce and custody sections.

  4. Hi fallbrook_lawseeker, Like the other posters said, it is in Jim's best interests to turn himself in as soon as possible. The situation is only going to become more serious (meaning harsher punishment for Jim) by staying in hiding. It's also probably in Jim's best interests to consult with a criminal defense attorney to address the failure to appear, as well as any potential evidence issues. He can find California criminal defense attorneys in his area by searching FindLaw's lawyer directory. You may also want to take a look at this FindLaw blog article that discusses what can happen if you fail to appear in court: Failure to Appear in Court: What Can Happen?You can also read up on searches/seizures and the suppression of evidence in these FindLaw articles: The 4th Amendment and the "Exclusionary Rule" Searches and Seizures: The Limitations of the Police Illegal Search and Seizure FAQs Good luck!

  6. Hi pamun, I'm sorry to hear that your grandchildren are in this situation. As a grandparent, it's undoubtedly frustrating to not be able to intervene to remove them from the situation. However, since both parents are in the children's lives, at this point you really have no legal rights to your grandchildren. Like adjuserjack said, you can call CPS and/or encourage your daughter to go back to court to have custody/visitation changed. A family law attorney would be able to advise your daughter of her best legal options when it comes to protecting the children. She can find a family law attorney in her area by searching the FindLaw lawyer directory. You can read more about grandparent custody and visitation in the following articles: Child Custody Basics Grandparents' Visitation and Custody: Background State Laws: Grandparent Visitation and Custody Good luck!

  9. When is this site going to start asking posters to reveal their location when they first join or post. It's getting really tiring reading a post, commenting, and including things like "depends on the laws of the state where the warehouse is located (which you didn't identify" every time. I've asked this before and never got an answer.

  12. Hi InquiringMinds17, Like adjusterjack and PG said, whether the landlord can make you responsible for your roommate's portion of the bill depends on the terms of your lease and Ohio's landlord-tenant laws. As far as understanding liability for a roommate's obligations to a landlord, in general, take a look at the following helpful articles taken from our Learn About the Law - Landlord Tenant Law section Landlord/Tenant Overview and Roommate Agreements How to Deal With a Roommate Moving Out Parties to a Lease Good luck!

  14. Hi sammyveritas, Like doucar suggested, your sister should be discussing the situation with her attorney. She'll be able to discuss the circumstances of her case with her attorney in more and better detail than you can through a public message board.

And if she can't afford to hire an attorney, she can take a look at the following FindLaw articles for helpful information on getting a court-appointed lawyer: How to Obtain a Court-Appointed Defense Lawyer Are You Entitled to a Court-Appointed Attorney?

  15. Hi rdr6_state, Like doucar stated, these are questions that you probably want to ask your attorney.
