  • I was wondering If they can charge for Owi if you Werent driving and Walkin And they say they Seen u Driving?

    Just was walking and wasnt driving

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    They could, but it doesn't sound like they would have a strong case. Not only do they have to prove you were driving, but that you were doing so while impaired. Most cop cars have video for that purpose. If you are charged with OWI, they will have to provide whatever evidence they have to your attorney during the discovery phase of the case.

    Best Regards, Jeff

  • Do I need a legal attorney?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    They are likely bluffing. If you were not served court papers, by Sherrif, certified mail, or by publication in newspaper, then you haven't been served. But, I agree that you should contact an attorney to make sure.

    File an ethics complaint with the disciplinary board, Google Indiana Disciplinary Commission. Then sue him, perhaps you could find a local attorney to take it on a contingent fee as a collection case. You might also check with the Attorney General's consumer protection division to see if they can help. You might also call the State Police to file a report & see if they will investigate the matter.

    If what you say is accurate, the attorney's conduct is reprehensible & perhaps even criminal.

  • Two weeks ago my divorce was to be finalized. We had a full agreement on division of assets and it was only a formality in

    meeting with the judge. The actual day of the divorce my ex-wife was killed in an accident. I did not have or want any ill will on my wife so I was still devastated. The court ordered that all assets go into my name, however her attorney tried ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    It sounds like the divorce was not granted & the will wasn't signed. Thus, she likely died intestate (without a will). If so, you and your/her children are the heirs at law. Additionally, there may be a wrongful death action if she was 't at fault in the accident.

  • What happens if I don't pay a civil judgement

    If my only income is SSA and what little pension I get is my only source of income. What can I do? Do I need a lawyer? I live in Indiana.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Once your pension goes into your account, it's fair game for creditors. But, your social security income is exempt. However, as a practical matter, you may find your bank account frozen, and you'll likely need assistance in getting it sorted out. You might be a little better off if they go into separate accounts. I'd talk to a bankruptcy lawyer so you can better understand your options.

    Good Luck, Jeff

    Im in the middle of a very nasty divorce. My x has threatened me many times saying that if judge orders him to pay for my car till paid that he will just stop paying on it or file bankruptcy. I assure you he will do this regardless of what it doe...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If the divorce court orders him to pay for your car, it cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. If he attempts to do so, you need to advise the bankruptcy court (you can just show up at his meeting of creditors) that he is sekking to discharge a domestic support obligation.

    You need to request a hearing, otherwise nothing will happen. At the hearing, you need to be ready to prove the criteria set out in the statute.

  • Regarding home occupancy

    My husband and I are in the process of buying a house on contract. The person we are buying it off of just informed me that he is filing bankruptcy and is including the house in which we are buying. He does own the house outright and is including ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    It depends on what you mean by including it in his bankruptcy. He doesn't owe anything on it, so in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy he may not be able to keep it, because it may exceed his asset exemption amount. If he is filing chapter 13, likely there are no concerns as It would make no sense that he would surrender a house he owes nothing on. There would be nobody to surrender it to.

  • Am I responsible for an engagement ring that my fiance purchased on her credit card then called off the wedding?

    my ex girlfriend agreed to marry me. I didnt have the money to buy a ring so she bought it with her credit card. she then called off the engagement and wants me to pay for the ring.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I assume that she cannot return the ring, otherwise you wouldn't be asking the question. Anyway, I think the end analysis is you are not liable. She could argue that you had a verbal contract, and she accepted when she purchased the ring. However, when she called off the wedding, she breached the contract.
