    A revocable trust is essentially useless in protecting assets. It is an estate planning device but that's it.

    If you marriage was solemnized by someone of authority, it is valid. Social security has nothing to do with it.

    I knew a judge who would NEVER wear a robe; he said it a costume and he is not about to wear a white wig either. If the best defense your case has is that you think the judge should have been wearing a robe, you had better keep thinking. That is a non issue.

    If I understand your fact set correctly, you are saying that the dad gave his estate to one child but told that one child to help out the others once he has the money. If that is your question, the answer is no. That is not even a will contest -- that is saying that the will is correct but there are subsequent suggestions for the beneficiary after he has the money. The son that gets the money has no legal obligation to follow that sort of suggestion (no one can verbally order anyone to do...

    I think you are looking at the benefits of setting aside your plea (if possible at this point) but not the risks. If a judge will agree to set aside your conviction, the case is not over. You will have a charge (maybe two ) pending that will result in a trial. You will have to have a lawyer try that case for you. And you might still lose. Don't forget, you were sworn in and you testified to driving drunk. If that was false, why did you do it? Things to ponder before taking action on this....

    Your story is hard to understand. You hired a lawyer based on the assertion that he graduated law school? That is not sufficient to practice law. You thought that you or he could file a sufficiently dazzling answer that the case would be dismissed? There is no such thing as that. An 'answer to complaint' should NEVER contain case law citations. If his answer was insufficient, how did that make you lose your case? Regardless of how bizarre this fact pattern is, you are not entitled to...

    It really depends on what your suspension order says. But hire a lawyer and you should be able to be reinstated.

    I agree with the general info you have been given above. The answer to your specific questions are as follows: If you did not have collision coverage, you are out of luck as to the damage to your car, except for $500 which you can recover from the other driver as a mini-tort. Your insurance will cover your lost wages if they are related to your injury -- not to your lack of transportation. You didn't say you were injured. If you weren't, no one will cover your lost word. That they other...

    You identify a serious issue but there is not enough background here to give you a complete answer. Even though it is 2013, the fact is that kids tend to end up with mom, absent some serious exigent circumstances. So, what you are really asking is if this bedbug issue is enough to overcome what kept you from getting custody in the first place. We don't know what that is.

  10. Is it legal in Michigan for a professional massage therapist to do a sexual hand release?

    Two adults can agree to engage in sexual activity. Taking money for sexual activity is prostitution and if you take money to perform a service for which you are licensed and also, as an add in, perform a sexual service, you will lose your license and get charged with a felony. I bet some clients would choose my legal services over my colleague's if I would offer a sexual hand release. Does that sound like a good idea to you? Does it sound legal?
