Q: 

What happens if....?

A:  You will stay in jail or find a bondsman or have your attorney request a bond reduction hearing. If you don''t have the full amount, you can call someone to post it for you. If you don''t have anyone you can use the services of a bail bondsman. They charge a fee equal to 10% of the bail amount up to $10,000. Over that the fee is 7%. This amount is not refundable when you go to court. If you can''t pay that or a bondsman will not take your case, you stay in jail. Don''t drop the soap!! You don''t get out of jail. You''ll then have to wait for first appearance at which time they tell you what your bail is again. You can request a bond reduction, but it may get set for a separate hearing on another day. Best thing is...don''t get in trouble to where this is an issue. it depends on the charge,...

Q: 

How long will you have to go to school to become an EOD in the army?

A:  Sorry dude. I don''t answer questions about EOD to people I don''t know - especially when I have friends still in on the front lines, and especially when there are so many ''other'' people out there who would like to learn more about them. About a year total. First you go to the ordance ammunition specialist course at Redstone Arsenal, AL for 10 weeks then you go to the EOD course at Eglin AFB thats 9 months long...

Q: 

So, ILEGAL IMMIGRANTS shouldn't have to learn english, huh, then no translation then!?

A:  The USA is a melting pot. The Mexicans are our very close neighbors. Becoming fluent in a foreign language is very difficult. I have never before heard someone so brazenly defend their right to remain ignorant. Learning a second language is a GOOD thing. Hate is a very, very bad thing. Regardless, for some people, particular seniors that aren''t even necessarily illegal, but completely legitimate immigrants, learning english is hard. They can''t understand things properly, despite learning and trying. Watch the movie "Crash," why don''t ya? By the way, what languages have YOU learned, huh? Look, I''m not saying it''s a bad idea that they try to learn. I''m just saying, they have a different viewpoint. Some people can''t afford the tuition to learn, and then they have to piece...

Q: 

My asylum case is on immigration court , If get marriy usa Citizen now then why should i go to court?

A:  The process for legalization after marriage to a citizen and the process for asylum are two different things. One doesn''t necessarily affect the outcome of the other in any statutory way, although the other case may present mitigating factors where discretion is involved. Also the immigration court may see your marriage as an attempt to circumvent any negative outcome from the asylum case. That can actually hurt you. You may want to consult an immigration attorney if you have not already. Because marriage to a citizen won''t automatically fix your status in the country, if anything the fact that you were an asylum seeker who married a citizen & didn''t bother to pursue your case will set off alarm bells. You will still need to jump through legal hoops as the spouse of a US citizen to...

Q: 

How do you get out of jury duty?

A:  If you have kids you can get out of it that way. But I would go. Say that you are a big time racist. I think you can try to tell them that you''ll be out of town. That might work. If you didn''t ruin the envelope opening it up, glue, NOT TAPE, the thing back together and mark "Return to sender, address unknown, no such number, no such zone." It worked once for me. Become a felon. They are not allowed to serve on a jury show reason or hardship. Judge will not (see: contempt charges) allow unless you can prove claim. Otherwise, military aren''t allowed to serve on a jury, try that the only way you get out of it is you have a child and your the guardian or your not a US citizen. but...

Q: 

Not sure where to go from here

A:  "IL didn't get the confirmation of my payment and suspended my license" I think that's backwards. KY probably doesn't have a record of payment, suspended you and reported the suspension to the other states. There's no regular way IL would know about your citation unless KY reported it. "I finally got ahold of my birth certificate, however, I missed my court date. I know a warrant was issued for me." Yep. "I was unemployed at the time and didn't have any funds to handle it and didn't do anything so I probably have a failure to appear in TN also and possibly a warrant there." Probably? Possibly? Yes, you do. When you don't go to court, a warrant issues. I'd start with the dept of transportation (or whatever) in KY, to see what...

Q: 

What can I do?--Q

A:  If you didn''t give notice in writing that you are leaving then you don''t need to move out. Your landlord will have to evict you otherwise, and that is a lengthy process. When your original lease expires it reverts to a month to month lease unless you sign in to a new one. You don''t need to go anywhere... don''t let the landlord force you out. Contact the landlord and make it clear that you never gave notice and that you are not planning to move out. Continue to pay your rent on time... don''t give the landlord a reason to boot you out. Perhaps you owe an apology for misleading the landlord if that is what happened... but you don''t have to move. Before you assume that your lease automatically rolls over to a month to month lease, review it. In addition, review what it might state in...

Q: 

Do illegal aliens deserve , rate, warrant, justify amnesty?

A:  The Native Americans found out the hard way what happens when you don''t control immigration. JD I say HELL NO. Illegal aliens deserve MASS DEPORTATION NOW for ALL illegal alien racist hispanic la raza nazi KKKlan with a Tan MESSYcans. Absolutely not!! When Reagan gave them amnesty it caused even more to come here hoping for another.Now look at the mess we are in. Plus it is a slap in the face to those that worked hard and payed a lot of money to come here legally.It is like giving the bad child ice cream in front of the kids that followed the rules and telling them that they can not have any. I agree....No is the answer. They don''t deserve anything from America. Go back where you came from and apply for citizenship the legal way. They have the wrong attitude....

Q: 

problems with visitation

A:  You absolutely need an attoreny. Do you have proof of the abuse with exception of what the kids are saying? Yes you can go to jail for this. Can you call around and see if legsl aid, or any attoreny will hlep you pro bono or on a sliding scale? Have you called CPS to report the kids claims? All I can think of for the reason nobody is taking it seriously because nobody believes them. You desperately need an attorney, or you could go to jail :( You said that you have to go to court in Ohio, but you live in Indiana. How long have you lived there, and do you have primary physical custody? If you have lived there for some time and you have primary physical custody it is possible that you could petition the courts to change jurisdiction to Indiana. It's something to look into. But...

Q: 

My ex-girlfriend wants to meet up tomorrow...what should I do?

A:  just tell her exactly what you''ve told all of us here. don''t do something so dumb@ssed ever again. yes, we would forgive you based onthe above. luck to you. just say what you feel man. if she feels the same way then you''ve nothing to worry about. you need to meet up with her because she probably feels the same way as you. girls like emotion it shows them that you are so if you do start crying it won''t make you look like a loser to her. Look at it this way: You''ve never stopped liking her + She wants to meet up with you. Whatever comes from this meetup, I think you''d be constantly asking yourself ''What if?'' if you don''t go along. All you can do is apologise for hooking up with the random girl. Your ex-girlfriend has every right to have lost her trust in you; you have to show her...
