    My suggestion would be to contact a tax attorney in the state where you allegedly owe state taxes. You should consult with someone who is familiar with that particular state's tax laws, especially since some states (e.g., Tennessee) do not have a state personal income tax. Also, you may want to consult with a military representative to see if they have encountered this issue before and whether they can provide (perhaps free) assistance.

    One of the primary concerns that a defendant should have when picking up a new charge while on probation is that a violation of probation (VOP) will be filed against him/her. A traditional requirement of probation is that the defendant not pick up any new local, state, or federal charges. If you do pick up a new charge, you would violate this term of your probation. A prosecutor may then ask for a VOP to be issued, and your bond may be revoked. Your best bet is to contact a criminal defense...

    I believe that Jonathan Levy's suggestion about sending yourself registered mail is a good idea. However, it sounds like receiving your mail may be the least of your concerns at this point. Additionally, you should be careful about the details you provide in an open forum such as this one (i.e., Avvo). My suggestion is that you immediately contact an attorney to discuss your situation more fully.

  4. Can I get my denied innocent spouse request reversed so I'm not liable for money my ex-husband earned and didn't claim.

    There are many facts that are not set forth in your posting that will bear on how your situation is handled at this point. Generally speaking, if you and your husband filed joint returns, you may be jointly and severally liable for the full amount of the tax liability [IRC Sec. 6013(d)(3)]. However, IRC Sec. 6015 provides three potential sources of relief from this liability for "innocent spouses." At this point, I don't have enough information to assess whether you would be a good candidate...

    Based on the information that you've provided, it appears that your son has been charged with 3 Class C felonies, which typically will carry a 3-6 year punishment range. However, the judge will have the option to run any sentence consecutively or concurrently, which could have a tremendous impact on the total amount of punishment your son may be facing. You and/or your son should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.

    I agree with the answers provided by my colleagues. Your best move at this point is to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to best prepare your defense, which will likely include a motion to suppress evidence.

    I agree with the other attorney responses. Simply put, it's too early to tell since the definition of "significant misdemeanor" is still a work in progress. Contact an immigration attorney to discuss this matter and stay informed as these new regulations develop.

    Your scenario seems fraught with peril, and I would suggest that you immediately contact an immigration attorney to discuss your options. The real answer to your question cannot be given without receiving additional facts. Please consult with an immigration attorney PRIOR to leaving the country.

    Without further details, I am not sure as to whether I can give you a precise answer. Your limited details of a hypothetical chat between two consenting adults appears on the surface not to run afoul of any child pornography laws. However, many potential issues may arise as more details are developed (e.g., how do you know that the other consenting adult is really an adult, were there plans to "put the fantasy" into action, etc.). I would suggest that you immediately consult with an...

    I would strongly recommend that you obtain a lawyer immediately, either a private attorney or court-appointed counsel (if you qualify for one). Although a shoplifting charge may seem relatively minor, the charge & potential conviction for same can have long-lasting effects. For example, shoplifting could be viewed by potential employers as a "crime of dishonesty," which could severely impact you ability to obtain employment in the future. Your best outcome is to obtain a dismissal of the...
