    Personal Injury issues are often complex with lots of variables. You didn't provide enough information for us to say much more than you may have a claim if incident occurred within the last 3 years (other time limitations may apply depending on your particular circumstances). Consult with a personal injury attorney in your area who you are comfortable with and can properly evaluate your particular case circumstances and provide you with an idea of what you may be entitled to. Most attorneys...

  2. I accidently drove into a ditch filled with water and was charged with DWI, hit and run and leaving the seen. Is that right?

    Is there any chance you were less than polite and cooperative with the officer? Based on the facts as you have presented them, it seems a bit like over charging to also hit you up with hit and run and leaving the scene if you simply went across the street to seek help even though the law does require that you stay with the vehicle unless your life or others is at significant risk. As to the DWI, there are two ways to be convicted: 1) blowing .08 or higher or 2) by being 'appreciably impaired'...

  3. What is the punishment for bigamy in NC if a person attempted to find their spouse for several years and couldn't?

    In North Carolina bigamy is a Class I Felony. If the bigamy is an honest mistake where the person honestly believed they were legally divorced and remarried with no fradulent intent, a district attorney may take that into consideration when deciding to prosecute. However, her sitiuation is especially bad because she knew she was still married when she remarried and did it anyway and for the fradulent purpose of being entitled to insurance which she should have known she is not entitled to....

    It is possible that she could file a Divorce from Bed & Board and the Court could force you to leave. However, on the facts you have presented, it is more likely the Court would put her out instead of you. Be advised, do not let her goad you into any sort of physical argument what so ever or it is highly likely that the next thing you know you are being removed by law enforcement for domestic violence. Some women will even go so far as to outright lie and cry domestic violence when there isn'...

    Possibly! There are a lot of factors to be considered in determining if you are eligible for post separation support, spousal support or alimony. Most of the factors determine if you are a dependent spouse which is the main requirement. However, there are other factors such as marital misconduct which can also be considered. Based on the circumstances you describe of a short 5 year marriage and you being employed part time by choice (meaning presumably you are capable of full time...

  6. Do I want to sign a Waiver of Service or Answer?

    This is a question for a Texas attorney since it involves Texas law. However, if Texas law is similar to North Carolina law you may be Waiving more than Service or the right to Answer if you sign it. The other attorney mentions there is a cost benefit. I would point out that this is a cost benefit to your husband not necessarily to you. You should consult with an attorney familiar with Texas law so you can make an informed decision on whether or on to sign the Waiver.

    If everything was done properly and you blew .08 or above, your odds of getting the case dismissed or even reduced to a lesser offense are slim and none. There needs to be some defect in the way your case was handled in order for the District Attorney to even consider dismissal or reduction. This is why you need an attorney because you will have no idea if your case has problems that could result in dismissal or reduction. Also, DWI charges have time sensitive elements. For example if want...

    Not much for a judge to decide here, based on the facts you presented - you are at fault! Much in the same way that 99.99999% of rear end accidents are the fault of the driver hitting the rear end - pedestrians always have the right of way! If you saw her - as you indicate you did - you don't get to 'point out her mistake' or red hand flag her (what ever that is) and keep on coming. Here's why - you are in an 1500 pound plus auto. Pedestrians, right or wrong, gots nothing but their meat sticks...

    Larceny by an employee is a felony - a very serious charge. Since you acknowledge that "I don't know what to expect or how to prepare for this" - you need an attorney. If you can not afford one, look into applying for a court appointed attorney or a public defender, if your district has one ASAP.

  10. My friend had 1/2 oz marijuana in her purse. I did not have anything nor used anything. Why was I charged with possession?

    Only the charging officer knows for sure but good guesses would be that you were close enough to the purse that the officer said to themselves 'charges for everyone - let the court sort it out' or maybe the officer just didn't like your attitude or your hair style. At this point, the 'why did I get charged' should be of no concern to you except for curiosity sake. Now that you have been charged you should focus on dealing with it. Your best bet is to hire an experienced criminal law attorney....
