    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from Dudesweet1 in Required to serve this jail time still?   
    Hi @SandraDeGidio87
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! This may be an issue you want to discuss with your probation officer. You may not want to assume that you are not responsible for serving the time simply because your probation ended.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from akulamasusu in Baltimore City > hate crime > sucker punch > permanent eye damage   
    Hi @PlainlySecret
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting. So sorry to hear about the attack against you and all that you have endured. If the police locate a suspect you can likely initiate a civil action against that person. In the meantime, you may want to speak with a worker's compensation attorney just be totally aware of your right since you were injured while attending a work training. It may be possible that worker's compensation might pay for your out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages. You can also speak with a civil attorney about initiating a lawsuit against Baltimore who can advise you about the likelihood of succeeding in a claim against the city.
    Best of luck with your case and keep us posted!

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from akulamasusu in Inheritance   
    Hi @hurting1213
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! In a community property state, the inheritance should remain your separate property. However, be careful not to "comingle" these funds with any community property funds. Once you receive your inheritance, open a separate bank account in your name alone, and do not mix these inheritance funds with other funds. This will increase the likelihood that a court confirms the inheritance to you as your separate property.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from simplyme83 in Arresting Officer and Conflict of interest   
    Hi @simplyme83
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Looks like you've already gotten lots of good input from the community! Agreeing with the group, the description you describe does not sound much like a conflict of interest, which includes a public official's conflicts between private and public duties, or a conflict between competing duties. What you describe sounds more like a possible bias against you, which is an unreasoned judgment against one side in a dispute.
     
    As others have mentioned, this is an issue you should discuss with your public defender. If you feel your public defender is not serving you well, you can try to change public defenders, or speak with a private criminal defense attorney.
     
    Best of luck!

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from Ratman66 in Fake Repairs and annoying tenant   
    Hi @Ratman66
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! If the management company contracted with a plumber, it seems that they would be responsible for the payment, as they could not contract on your behalf (unless you have an agreement with the management company to this effect). Clearly the plumber needs to be paid for his time, and if neither you nor the management company pays him, you risk being named in a lawsuit. It sounds like it may be beneficial for you to talk to the management company about giving you advanced notice of any repair requests, so that in the future you can weigh in on whether a plumber is necessary. You may also want to ask your tenant to contact you about repairs, not the management company.
     
    Best of luck!

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from bella08 in Disability Discrimination/Harrassment   
    Hi @bella08
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Sorry to hear about your situation. If you believe that you are being improperly denied reasonable accommodations, or have been discriminated against due to your disability, then you may want to speak with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or speak with a local employment attorney.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from cdhum in Doffing and donning class action info   
    Hi @cdhum
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Do you know what court this lawsuit was filed in? If so, you can go to the court's online website, or visit the court clerk's office and ask to pull the file. Often class action cases can take a long time to litigate -- even years. Pursuant to California law, a party can move to dismiss a case if it is not brought to trial within a certain number of years, however, there are many exceptions to this rule.

    Hi @jsrollison
     
    Check out this article about bringing criminal charges against someone. However, given that this involves the military, a separate body of law will apply and you will want to consult with a military attorney.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from frost in Arrested by Officer Who harrassed Me   
    Hi @ArrestedbyHarrassingOfficer
     
    Welcome to the community and thanks for posting your question! As others have mentioned, the impact of the officer's behavior on your case will depend on his specific misdeeds. Certain evidence can be excluded when illegally obtained pursuant to the Fourth Amendment. If certain critical evidence is deemed inadmissible, the state may be forced to dismiss your case for lack of evidence.
     
    If you can provide us with more context, the community may be able to provide further direction.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from Vic in Want To Move W/Kids   
    Hi @Vic
     
    As LegalWriter mentioned, you must formally serve your ex with the motion after it's filed. It's up to you if you want to also present your ex with the motion before filing. However, a hearing will not be scheduled until several weeks out, so you will have time to negotiate a settlement in advance of your court date. Sometimes, it is a motivating factor to have the court date set.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from chuckyg23 in Sentencing time lines   
    @chuckyg23 Because restitution began being being collected while you were incarcerated, likely it was as of your first day prison. The terms of your restitution should be set forth in your plea agreement or sentencing order.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from donata in Attorney Suing for fees   
    Hi @makinganattempt
     
    Welcome and thanks for posting. Sorry to hear about your negative experience with your attorney, and the fees lawsuit. Legalwriter has given you some great input. You can download judicial council forms from the California courts website. Legalwriter is also correct that you have 30 days from the service date, not the filing date to file an answer. You should have been served with a summons, and the first line in the box on the front states "You have 30 CALENDAR DAYS after this summons and legal papers are served on you to file a written response at this court and have a copy served on the plaintiff." According to your post, the date of service is September 14, 2016.
     
    Check out this link about the fee arbitration program offered through the California courts. As you mentioned in your post, your attorney should have provided you with notice of this program (perhaps along with a previous demand letter?). If it is still available to you, fee arbitration can be a good way to work out an agreement without having to go to court against your former lawyer.
     
    Best of luck and let us know if you have additional questions.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from DaughterofAlzheimer in Family dispute/probate estate   
    Hi @DaughterofAlzheimer
     
    Welcome to the community thanks for posting. Your posts are quite dense (paragraph breaks might help). A few clarifying questions to confirm: Your mother is still alive and you need to address a new will she signed 3 years ago while you believe she was incompetent? Also, you cannot afford an attorney? Or you are currently working with counsel?
     
    While hiring an attorney can be a significant financial burden, in situations like yours it can be very difficult to proceed without the assistance of counsel, especially if there is an attorney on the other side of the case.

    FindLaw_RE got a reaction from joephdnpainting in Why is the district attorney also a bill collector   
    Hi @joephdnpainting
     
    Thanks for your question! The responses from our community have pointed you towards the statutes regarding child support, and the authority for the DA to collect. As you mentioned in your post, the State of California takes non-payment of child support very seriously. Failure to pay child support can lead to wage garnishment, real property liens, suspension of driver's license, and contempt charges.
     
    Part of the reason for this is the public policy behind child support. It is for the benefit of minor children, so the state will go to great lengths to ensure that children are adequately supported by both of their parents (and both parents have an obligation to financially support their children). However, also, every child support order is just that -- a court order. Violation of court orders can lead to contempt charges, which may result in civil or criminal fines.
