A:  Ive been pulled over twice, and ill tell you what happened. First incident: I was pulled over for going to fast.

Q: 

What to do When Unknowingly Involved in an Internet Scam

A:  “I unknowing got involved in an internet scam; My question: What responsibility do I have? I did not promise anyone anything, I did not solicit in anyway anyones funds, I transmitted it as agreed to.” Whether you did it knowingly or not, you aided a crime and could be held legally liable for your involvement. Based upon your explanation, you may have some mitigating factors that may help you avoid serious penalties. But at a minimum you will need to refund any money you made to the victims, and be prepared to assist them (and law enforcement) in doing whatever is possible to catch the perpetrators. Your best bet is to contact a criminal defense attorney in your area (contact your state or county Bar Association and make use of their attorney referral...

Q: 

What to do When you Suspect Child Neglect

A:  “What recommendations do you have for someone whose spouse was arrested during her 6th month of pregnancy, stayed 2 days in jail due to her BAC of .247 (determined by her visit from jail to the local hospital) and later charged with 3rd degree assault followed by probation. The child is behind in speech, development and not potty trained and just recently learned to start wiping herself. Subsequently the mother went on a trip to visit relatives promising to return in one week. One and one-half years later she has now filed for divorce. She was asked repeatedly to come back home to no avail, and even denied visitation until recently when the court ordered visitation times. Is this parental kidnapping, child abuse, child neglect, ?? And if so, should charges...

Q: 

Marriage Coming Apart, What To Do?

A:  My guess would be from the general tone, that your change of heart, your desire to make repairs to the family, and to the marriage, has occurred in more recent times, or the last few years. "...I feel my military tenure, all the deployments, separations from my own family, and the harsh behavioral attitudes I had evidently brought into my home have affected them severely..." Please understand then that it could well be hard for the people in your household to recognise the change as what it is, an honest attempt to make good. If there have been many bad years (and bad feelings) proceeding this, its also going to take a lot of time to repair the damage done, especially if promises of change have been made in the past - and broken. Now I will give you one woman''s point of view on...

Q: 

Help! Idk what to do?!?

A:  You might speak to his CO. The Army, like all branches of the military, has a code of conduct they expect their members to follow. I think you have more than enough evidence to conclude that he is not behaving properly. He will probably be angry for you doing so, however this is definitely the quickest way to get his attention and let him know you will not tolerate his behavior. Your right, he''s not going to change, nor will he be an active participant with ''your child''. Having a child will NOT make the trust problems go away, nor help with his shady character . . . be prepared to shoulder the responsibility like a single parent. Realize you can''t MAKE someone call/text you . . . and if they are not, well, it means that they really don''t want to. If they don''t talk about a pregnancy,...

Q: 

How soon do motobilty ask for their car back after death.?

A:  Sadly as soon as your brother-in-law dies you need to tell the benefits people. Perhaps you could do this for your sister to help her when the time comes. Just ring the local Jobcentre Plus or local social security office, and they will tell you what to do. The Motablility people may allow your sister to buy the car outright, if she can manage it. The car, you see, is provided for the benefit of your brother-in-law, not anyone else, and your sister should not use the car for any other purpose. Thus she should not use the car at all after he passes away and "they" will sort matters out in due course. If your sister does not qualify for mobility then the car will go back. your sister will have to go into the dealership that dealt...

Q: 

What laws do I break riding my motorbike through the local public park?

A:  I think you''ll find it''s a bye law which if it isn''t posted somewhere in the park you can''t be breaking it. So when plod says you can''t do that ask why and where does it say it. did you did something wrong? no, I don''t think so... Public disturbance ! That''s a good serious offence as like it say in the words,"Public Park" is for the public and a park for relax and tranquillity AWAY from mad nutcases on screaming bikes. well for starters - do you need a license to ride the motorbike? because if you do...there''s a big law right there. this can vary state to state, town to town, country to country, etc... Assuming you don''t need a license for it - it completely depends on the town/area you live in....

Q: 

What responsiblity do I have as landlord when tenants are in dispute with neighbors?

A:  You have no obligation here. Smart to stay out of it. You have no responsibilities in the manner, other than to attempt to provide “quiet enjoyment” of the premises. Your tenants should not be calling the neighbors — they should be calling the cops. Here is what you do…let the police handle it. Advise the tenants who are being bothered to call the police each time they hear the music too loud. The police will come out and if they are defying a noise ordinance, they will cite the loud neighbors. They''ll only do that a few times before they stop. As a business person, you can''t get involved in things like that. However, when you renew the leases, I would advise putting in there that there is to be no loud music between the hours of 7:00 pm. and 10:00 a.m. the...

Q: 

Pulled Over For Drinking and Driving - What to Do?

A:  It is not a happy moment in your life - the flashing lights of a police car are in your rear view mirror and you have been drinking. This is a very stressful situation and knowing what to do ahead of time can help you manage the moment in the best way possible. The first thing is to find a safe place to pull over and stop. Next, do not make any sudden moves, stay in your car and keep your hands in plain view. Getting out, reaching under the seat or otherwise moving around forces an officer to infer what your intentions are. What might be an innocent move can be incorrectly interpreted as threatening, leading to an escalation in the officers actions. Once the officer reaches your window, be polite. Being rude or combative is not going to help. If the officer suspects you to be under the...
