  • How to fill out and send a subpoeana for documents and things

    When I fill out the subpoena is that AT: part the address of the person I am sending it to. Does this have to be sent out through certified mail. What to I file with the prothonary's office associated with the subpoeana.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Speak to the court clerk for guidance on what is needed-- in all states I am aware of, only the court or lawyers may issues subpoenas and then, only if a civil suit is already filed.

  • False arrest/unlawful dui

    Self represented in the dmv case which was won, what are my options along the line of "sec 1983"?

    Rixon’s Answer

    It's not clear there's any civil rights violation at all. When in a "DMV" case does not establish a civil rights basis. You need to speak to attorney taking all the documents you have, and discuss the scenario, the options the likelihoods and your best way forward. Well done on the DMV thing but don't get all liquored up that you're suddenly Perry Mason, a federal civil rights suit is a whole different ballgame.

  • I am being followed around wherever I go and harassed all the time by complete strangers. It's basically like "gangstalking"

    The harassment has been going on for years now and even though I've stood my ground and waited for it to stop, it is still occurring in some capacity every single day. There are random people sitting in the parking lot when I go to the grocery sto...

    Rixon’s Answer

    You can report it if you want--truth is there is nothing the police will do for you--you don't have a crime, don't have a suspect. Nothing a lawyer can do for you: you have no damages, no duty is being neglected, no tort being committed, no contract breached. Perhaps report what is happening to a mental health specialist in your area and see if they can help you define the circumstances a bit better.

    Rixon’s Answer

    I am certainly confused as to why you think your fuel pump, engine misfire has anything to do with your speeding. No connection.

    Your options appear to be to pay the ticket to move on, or fight the ticket. Almost any traffic attorney will tell you to fight the ticket. You're perfect driving record might be a circumstance the court will look favorably upon.

    Ninety-nine times out of 100 people who say that they will see you in court, never see you again. If sued, consult with a local attorney to see what your best options might be.

  • Am I entitle to anything if my grandparents are decease and her kids (my mother deceased also)are getting the property.

    Grantparents passed away last year five kids alive and my mother grandparents daughter deceased do me and my sibling have the right to anything

    Rixon’s Answer

    Depends in part on whether any of those who passed left a valid will.

    Who is 'her' the woman whose kids are getting the house? your aunt? Mother?

    Your mother's grandparents daughter would be your mothers Aunt? So, five kids alive and your mother and an aunt passed?

    I'm confused now....recommend sit down with a local attorney and walk through the scenario a little more clearly and answer questions regarding wills that may be relevant.

  • What do I need to do? Probate or can I do it myself?

    My mother lived in another state and passed away without a will. She owes more on her house than it is worth. She doesn't own a car or owe other than mortgage and utilities. She has around $1000.00 in the bank. What should I do? I do have two brot...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Recommend you reach out to at TN attorney. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands a DIY probate/will project in another state can be very difficult.

    If your mother was a TN resident and domiciliary, her passing will fall under that state's laws of 'intestacy'.

    Her property and goods will be distributed according to TN's statutes and its best if a TN attorney walks you through the process.

    The TN attorney will want to know if you have been appointed by your mother as executor/administrator etc as a first point of discussion. I am sorry she has passed and I wish you the best.

    You can try the Avvo 'find a lawyer' tab at the top of this page, or you can used Google. or call the TN State Bar Association to locate attorneys in the same county as where your mother's property is.

  • How to put specific regulations on a house in a will?

    My mom is ill and I'm helping her type up her will. She has a friend that lives with her and wants me pay off the mortgage when she passes so her friend can continue to live in the house. But I want it in her will to state that the friend has to p...

    Rixon’s Answer

    You are typing the will? The very brief facts you posted here give me significant cause for concern.

    Sounds to me like whatever you're doing with your mom's will not pass muster in the Commonwealth.

    If the will is not properly executed IAW Virginia requirements, it could be rendered void and the state's intestacy laws would apply.

    If you really want to help your mom you should hook her up with a local attorney who can make sure that her will and her final arrangements accomplish what SHE desires.

  • Can u provide me with family law atty who practices in Phx, AZ but is also licensed in SD Ca

    My case is out of SD but Ive since moved to Phx, AZ. My portion of the case has been closed but I want to reopen

    Rixon’s Answer

    By SD did you mean South Dakota, or San Diego? The way your post reads now it says SD CA which frequently means San Diego, California.

    Unfortunately solicitations and referrals are not allowed on the site your best options would be to try the find a lawyer tab at the top of this page to locate Arizona (or California which ever it is) attorneys, or you can use Google to locate attorneys near you, or you can call your state or county bar association to request a referral. Good luck to you.
