QUESTIONS

  • I was arrested in August for marijuana possession. I was with a group and we were detained while the officer questioned us. We were not read our rights and I told the officer the joint was mine to eliminate my friend from getting into trouble. I was taken to the police station and was held for a few hours but they never read me my rights. I was then realeased to go home. I have since moved back to California and am trying to find out what is going to happen. There is no case filed and the court told me not to worry about it but the police said they have a year to file. What can I do?
  • My boyfriend owes almost $100,000 to the State of California. He is paying off the welfare that his ex wife was on. His paychecks are garnished and as of a few days ago his bank account was too. I was planning on joining the Navy in the spring and we wanted to get married. My question is: Will his child support debt transfer to me?Will they be able to garnish my wages and bank account? Will any of this be put on my credit score?
  • i have a friend who had a baby with a girl who he was dating and she left the baby with him, saying he can keep her that she wants to walk away from everything. What does he need to do to keep his daughter. And if she was to call the cops on him would he need to return the baby to his ex?
  • I was charged for burglary and theft felonies. I signed a plea admitting to the theft and the burglary charge was dismissed. After completing my probation the theft was reduced to a misdemeanor. I then had the misdemeanor set aside. Both the burglary and theft are showing up on an apartment background check and they don't say anything about being dismissed or set aside. Could this be an error? Could the court have mistakenly not cleared the conviction? Or is it the program they are using is not accurate? Thanks
  • How do i go about getting emergency custody of my child?
  • We rented a spot in someones yard for my trailer and got kicked out after only 2 weeks and not allowed to go get my trailer or any of my stuff. I found out that they have stolen 2 other trailers the same way... What should we do we have nothing and no where to live now..

  • When the child turns 18 does the child support stop or does the support continue until what age?
  • I am being evicted for complaining. I was served papers at 5:30 on Friday the 12th. I went to the courthouse Monday morning and filed an answer. There was not a judge at the time, the court clerk told me to sign the papers and she would get it taken care of. I also filed a counterclaim. I had to appear in court on the 18th. I appeared in court and asked the judge for a couple days extension so I could have ample time get legal council...he refused. He would not allow me to enter any evidence, pictures, letters, etc. I have 5 days to move....I signed a lease! Can you help me understand
  • My boyfriend was arrested last night for aggravated assault against me. I told the police that he has a history of mental illness and that he needed to go to a psychiatric hospital but they took him to jail anyway. I am not pressing charges but I am afraid the state will. How do I help him get the charge dropped and get mental help?
