Q: 

What should i do and what are the consequences?

A:  Pay the fine Your best option (other than consulting an attorney) would be to contact the clerk of court where you were supposed to show up and ask for a new hearing date. You can also contact the prosecutor assigned to your case, which you can find out from the court. i would call the courthouse clerk''s office as well as write a personal letter to the judge. Call the court and pay, they probably won''t even say anything to you. You WILL get arrested until that point so I would stay home for the weekend. You aren''t going to jail over something that stupid once you straighten it out, though. It shouldn''t go on your record. Go to the DMV.. make sure you have...

Q: 

How soon will my license be suspended?

A:  You must have 21 points or more in order for your license to be suspended. Also, it depends on your state. But if you have less points, you just have to pay a penalty and your license will not be suspended. They will send you a notice by mail first if they will suspend your license. if u pay it u should be right go to the dmv tomorrow and ask them good luck yes as well as a warrant for you arrest--beter be calling and begging and be there first thing in the am depends on what state your in and also how fast you were going. If the police didn''t take your license right there then you should be good, but be careful when you go pay the ticket they may get you right there. You can always have someone go in and pay it for you and have the person say you are working and...

Q: 

On interstate for 4 hours after roadside asist. drove past

A:  You probably don't have any legal options since you don't have any damages other than your justifiable anger.  As a consumer what I would do is head straight up the corporate food chain to a Regional Manager and continue climbing until you get some satisfaction.  You certainly did not get the service you paid for.  Regardless of whether they "saw someone there" they should have responded.  The second thing I would do is cancel this portion of your policy and change it over to another company.  One with three identical letters springs to mind.  You know the one from the begining of the alphabet.  I have used that company for years and they have NEVER let me down.  The third thing I would do is let your current company know WHY you...

Q: 

Have you taken traffic school twice in 18 months? (For those that live in CA)?

A:  It doesn''t work that way. The "once every 18 months" rule is a state law administered by the DMV which keeps your driving record. A judge can order you to attend traffic School more often, but when the violation is recorded on your driving record at the DMV''s central office you will only be given credit for one attendance every 18 months. This is not something a judge can set aside. Don''t waste your money by going more often. you did not mention what county but it doesnt matter. the courts are all connected and they know exactly when you do traffic school. i have never heard of anyone being allowed to go twice within 18 months (that''s why the rule is there) bite the bullet and...

Q: 

is there a way to get a permanent restraining order lifted?

A:  You were played. I suggest getting an attorney, or doign this yourself and filing a suit against her and maybe the local authorities too in civil court for making false statements to the police, malicious prosecution, theft and grand larceny, libel, slander and anything else that fits this situation. The charges against her are because she lied, made it up and this has ruined your name and reputation in the community and she made it so the authorities relied on her false statements. You sue the authorities for not doing their job in good faith because you told your side of the story and it was not adequately investigated. You should check the statute of limitations and if the local folks will do nothing, file criminal charges against her...

Q: 

Got caught driving without a license?

A:  Don''t hold your breath that the officer will not show up. Most departments give the officer extra pay to make sure they do show up for DMV court & the officers that do not can be reprimanded in some departments. It is also possible, that if the officer is on a very serious emergency call & there is just no way of being in court on time, some courts will continue the hearing & reschedule it for another day when (s)he can be there. As for you- you will lose your permit unless the judge & DMV cuts you some slack like the officer did. Under the CA teen driving laws, you will not be eligible now for your driver''s license now until you are at least 18, possibly even 21. So get...

Q: 

Employment Termintaion [Michigan]

A:  "Last night I was talking to some people at my brothers job, who said that it was "illiegal?" Well meaning friends and family often believe that just about every termination is "wrongful" and should go to court when it isn't.  Wrongful termination means someone was fired for a reason prohibited by law.  That would be age, race, gender, ethnic backround, religion, pregnancy, disability etc.  That was not why you were terminated.  You were fired because you did not show up for work or call in before the start of your shift.  Perfectly legitimate reasons to terminate an employee, regardless of whether others feel it was "wrong" and "they shouldn't have been able to...

Q: 

Moved out due to safety issue about landlord--Q

A:  Is he actually suing you, threatening to sue you or simply keeping your security deposit? If suing you, you will get notice of a court date. Make certain you show up to court to present your evidence that he agreed to allow you to move out and to show the condition of the rental unit via your video. See if your witness will agree to testify that the landlord stated you can move out early. If you fail to show up for the court date, your landlord will win the judgement. Gail Yes he is suing us; he served us yesterday 02/16/2010.. Thing I am finding out is there is a 14 day time limit from him getting the keys 01/11/10 in keeping the deposit and/or filing for damages. Am I correct in that? Landlord-tenant handbook...

Q: 

Conditional Discharge (Security Clearance)

A:  Hello Throw: I dunno what you have to do..... Oh, yes I do... Hire a lawyer. excon Do you live in Ontario? If so, I believe a conditional discharge leaves your record in effect for three years and then it should be removed. I don''t think you need a lawyer just try and do some more research on this yourself maybe through Pardons Canada but I am pretty sure you don''t need a pardon. You may need to contact someone however once three years has passed to make sure the criminal record is removed. Not anymore. I moved when all my cases and conditions were finished. I honestly don''t know who to contact, I asked Legal Aid and they said get a lawyer. I will tell you as a fact that on National Security background...

Q: 

What is a judgement, and what does it mean?

A:  Wow.. what a mess ! When a creditor sues you for a debt, the court grants them a judgment by default if you don''t show up for the court date. Judgments can mean wage garnishment (which I believe is NOT allowed in PA), garnishment of bank accounts, seizure of assets and liens on real property that you own (your house). Do you know what the judgemnt was for, why they sued ? If they''re foreclosing on the house, usually the only judgment that comes out of that is for any deficiency that might occur if the debt is not fully satisfied from a sale. You''ll have to go to court tomorrow, no way around that. I would have thought that when the CH 13 plan was finalized you should have gotten paperwork that explained exactly...
