Q: 

URGENT! New Legal Mal statute Question (CA)

A:  While I believe the Legislature may be considering revisions to lengthen the statute, the statute of limitations for a claim for legal malpractice is still one year (absent various circumstances, which may extend it to up to 4 years). Code of Civil Procedure Section 340.6. The issue of when the one year statute begins to run and when it is tolled is currently pending before the state supreme court. If the statute had in fact been amended, the issue would be moot and the appeal would have been dismissed. "If the Motion to be Relieved was granted on 7/19, is the 1-year construed as 7/19 ...." You're making reference to...

Q: 

Petty Theft and statue of limitations in CA

A:  >>>>If someone was arrested on petty theft charges in CA in 1994, and never went to court, could there be a warrant and if so, is there a statute of limitations for this charge? Yes. However, let's not confuse the issues. The statute of limitations only applies from the time the crime was committed and expires if the the defendant is not arrested for the offense within the SOL period. Here, the defendant was arrested so the SOL is no longer an issue. After having been arrested on the misdemeanor offense, the defendant has a speedy trial right to have the matter resolved within one year. Here, 12 years have elapsed. BUT, the speedy trial right is...

Q: 

foreign child support enforcement

A:  Dear Ana, if there is a court order, your ex-husband cannot simply change the terms of it, let alone the amount. He would need to go to court to do that. As long as he is living in Germany, you would enforce the child support order through the German authorities. You would need to get the US child support order recognized in Germany. After that, it would be helpful if you know from where he is drawing a salary, so that his wages could be garnished in case of a default. If you want me to do that, I would be very willing to help of course. Please feel free to contact me directly at moser@moser-law.com. ...

Q: 

Supreme court - time for term limits?

A:  On 10-Apr-2005, Steve <kh...mf.inv> wrote: Two law professors from Northwestern had an editorial published in the Wall Street Journal a couple days ago, arguing for term limits on US Supreme court justices. Their concern is that the court has become a gerontocracy, with justices since 1970 serving an average of 25+ years. They point out that "No other major country in the world allows the justices of its highest constitutional court to serve for life without a mandatory retirement age." They''d like to see a constitutional amendment effective in 2009, restricting terms to 18 years, with one seat opening up every two years. They point to the abuses of the current system -...

Q: 

How to enforce contract

A:  Your recourse is to sue, but nothing's going to happen in 30-60 days. The question is whether your contract to sell the business contains any sort of provision that might allow you to terminate and recover the business and its assets in the event of frequent defaults. Otherwise, if they are late, but regular, that's probably not something worth worrying about. 30-60 days isn't much. "How can I enforce this so that they pay on time?" What does your contract say about breaches in the terms ... penalties for paying late?...

Q: 

Enforcing custody HOW

A:  I''m not sure I fully understand your question. If your 16 year old son is staying with his father, against your wishes, you can file an enforcement petition in family court asking for a court order for your ex to return your son, or you can file a PINS petition, or you can file for a change in custody. All of these may affect any order of child support as well. Before filing anything, you should speak to a lawyer, as what you decide to do can have long term consequences which may not be apparent now. J. Douglas Barics www.jdbar.com...

Q: 

Does Receiving Welfare Relieve a Person from paying Child Support?

A:  “I’m asking a question regarding Child Support enforcement. I know of two men, my relatives, who are obligated to pay child support. I have another relative who claimed to be on welfare to keep the judge from issuing a child support order against her. What shocked me was the judge almost did it, but he researched and realized that she was only getting Medicaid and delivered a child support order. I had to ask because these two men DO receive welfare cash payments. One receives, what’s called, General Assistance, in Pennsylvania. The other one receives TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). Both have outstanding child support

Q: 

military retirment as community property

A:  If you don't live in Texas you likely don't file there.  You likely have to take your judgment to his state for enforcement. If you are near any law schools, see if they have a clinic that might help. Laymans take: No clue where you file--get started on same now....and you need not be in TX if thats is the right state to start--I'd get started ASAP--see below. I'll bet you can sort out correct state to file for enforcement in very very short time--no excuses to snooze on that one.   Complex enough that you best use counsel !!   The statute of limitations issue in TX is a bit convoluted--See Preston v Preston, 1992 appeal case It...
