    I agree with my colleagues....Walmart has an obligation to its customers to have a safe shopping environment. It is certainly reasonably foreseeable that a child might pick up a skateboard if it was loose in the store and hurt himself. It also sounds as if the display platform created an unreasonable risk of injury. You should consult with an attorney immediately.

    I agree with both counsels' answers above but would also add that you should take any information you have on the driver at fault (arrest record or any other identifying documentation) with you to your consultation.

    Can you provide some more specifics as to what transpired? (I.e., who what where when and why this happened?) Why do you believe the police arrested you and not the other parties involved in the incident? Did the police speak to your witness at the time of the altercation? If so, why did they proceed with arresting you but not the other parties, particularly when you were the one who was injured? On what evidenciary basis do you believe the criminal court find you not guilty?

    I am very sorry you are going through this. Due to the seriousness of this situation, I would recommend that you attempt to obtain the help of an attorney immediately. If you are unable to pay for an attorney, I would recommend that you contact the Legal Aid Society at (615) 244-6610.

    In order to get your TN marriage license, you will need the following - 1) A valid driver's license / certified birth certificate / valid passport. 2) Your Social Security number. 3) If previously married, a copy of your divorce decree. Who have you contacted in CA? The county clerk where your divorce occurred should be able to assist you.

    There are two potential issues that I would see here; 1) he must not just be from Florida, but he must also have been a resident of Florida for six consecutive months prior to filing for divorce, and 2) the Petitioner must appear at the Final hearing and state that he wants the dissolution granted.

  7. Am I able to open or make changes to my individual account so my spouse can't have access to it before the divorce is final?

    If the account is titled solely in your name - yes. However two words of caution - 1) I would not do this unless your spouse also has an account and a means of support, and 2) Just because you restrict access to the account does not mean the court may not find later that your wife has an interest in those fund. I would suggest you retain an attorney to assist you with this and to develop an overall game plan for you going forward.

    Ms. Morcroft is exactly right...you need an attorney and you need one now. You are at a significant disadvantage if you are sitting across the table from an experienced family lawyer. Under the circumstances you describe, trying to represent yourself pro se just isn't recommended.

    You will need to take this one step at a time. First, if you have reason to believe your goddaughter is being physically and / or sexually abused you should consider contacting the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

    You need to speak with a probate attorney and you need to do it quickly. Things start happening at a fairly quick pace. Ask the probate attorney to check to see if a case has been opened in probate already. If not, you can open one and make a claim to the estate. That may smoke out if there is a will out there, assuming that one of your family members is sitting on the will because that in some way benefits them. Your only other hope is to take the advice my colleagues have made and search...
