    If you reconciled and are back together, then the issue is moot. Unless a court order has been entered (meaning that you were summoned to court to defend yourself), there should not be any pending child support issues. If she is saying that you have NOT been supporting your dependent child, I hope that you have saved receipts, kept a log book or marked a calendar 9at least) of what support you have provided. You may need to clarify the SITUATION before a more cogent answer can be given.

    You possibly have a "failure to warn" claim against the product maker, but the doctor may also have exposure for malpractice. Did you sign any type of forms in which you were told (in writing) of this risk? I would set an appointment with a dermatologist to ask about the permanence of the indentation. If he or she says that it is permanent, you may have a claim. Short term issues, probably not. I am including a link to medical malpractice specialists in the Atlanta area. Take your...

    Jail is in your future, if you lose. Especially if it is pending in Coweta County, where your message originated. If you had 4 DUIs on or after July 1, 2008 -- within 10 years --- it is now a felony in GA. See my chart: www.dui.tv/galaws.pdf More links are set forth below. Get busy finding an attorney before the jail door gets slammed in your face.

    You need to quit thinking that you won't get caught driving while suspended. In a small community like yours ALL the cops know you. Each time that you are caught driving while suspended, MORE suspension time is added to your "wait" to get relicensed. Next, get a VERY good attorney. Since you could realistically spend a year in jail --- or more --- don't hire a cheap lawyer to plead you guilty. You can do that yourself. Call one of these nearby firms to help you through this mess: Joe Kunes...

    Sentencing is an issue that is largely left to the Judge's discretion. However, in the past decade, more and more state legislatures have followed the federal "minimum sentencing guidelines model", and have taken away a trial judge's discretion to NOT put you in jail for a certain number of days. In other words, the jail MAY be mandatory and unavoidable. Certainly, your 180 degree turnaround is compelling for a judge to consider, and issues involving children's needs can invoke sympathy, but...

    Most states now carry "enhanced" penalties for drunk driving convictions where the breath or blood test readings are at or above a certain limit. This policy was engineered by NHTSA with the political assistance of MADD. Disregarding Washington law for a moment, let me point out that CHALLENGING these results is the answer to your question. When you don't fight, the prosecutor always has the upper hand. Challenging the numeric results is often the "ticket" to a reduction of charges to a non-...

    It appears that the arrest here was on federal land. That usually means that the traffic and criminal matters will be brought before a federal magistrate or district judge as a bench (no-jury) trial. I would confirm that with a local attorney, but that is what would occur here in Georgia. The question of whether the officer can proceed upon the underlying charge is YES, assuming there is sufficient proof that the offense really occurred, versus the officer making a pullover based on a hunch or...

    Sounds like you are involved with an issue under www.interstatecompact.org. The simple answer is that SOME classifications of offenders MUST get approval of the INCOMING state. Section 2.105 is the relevant set of rules, if this is a misdemeanor, which I assume that it is. Go there and read it. Link below. These matters are difficult to accomplish, in many jurisdictions.

    Amnesty programs are sometimes offered, but do not count on it. Your best bet is to CALL the court clerk for which these are pending, and ASK them about any such plans to wrap up all with a settlement. This is like having an IRS bill that you cannot pay. Most traffic tickets get BUMPED up higher if not paid within a very SHORT window of time. 10 days is not unusual. So, your outstanding balance may be $3000, but $1500 to $200 may be penalties. Ask the clerk about being able to settle for the...
