    Hiring an attorney might help facilitate the divorce, especially if there is tension preventing you from communicating effectively with your (soon-to-be) ex. If your ex is refusing to cooperate in reaching an agreement or at least identifying which issues need to go to trial, you can tell the court that and the court will issue an order containing deadlines. If the proceding is or becomes adversarial, I strongly suggest seeing an attorney. Good luck.

    Trying to be compliant and being compliant are two different things. If he violated any of the terms of probation, he could face a sanction. If the agent is being abusive, your brother should consult with an attorney about whether it would be smart to go over the agent's head to his/her supervisor about the situation. I strongly suggest consulting with an attorney first both because the attorney is likely to be more objective than your brother and because the attorney, if he/she is...

  3. Are you liable for early termination charges on a cell phone contract if the salesperson lied to get you to sign it.

    I'm not quite sure what the lie is supposed to have been. It may or may not be true that the manufacturer for your old phone still makes batteries for the old phone, but in any case you could certainly get aftermarket batteries on the internet if nothing else. I have a hard time thinking a judge would back you up in getting you out of the contract without the early termination fee. Depends on the judge, probably.

    I agree with the other answers. If the police had actual or apparrent authority to enter the home, your goose is probably cooked. Hire an attorney ASAP if you have not already done so and have him/her research this point. I hold out little hope based on what you have posted.

    You need to discuss the case in depth with your attorney and hire a different attorney if you think he's not doing a good job for you. You are potentially looking at up to 3 years and 6 months in the Wisconsin prison system, of which up to 18 months could be ordered as initial confinement time. If you are earning $20,000/year working, you are potentially looking at losing $30,000 in income plus your liberty, plus the damage a felony conviction for a crime of dishonesty would bring you....

    You've asked this question a dozen times or so now. Stop it please. There were some very good answers the first few times you tried. You do not even have new evidence according to what you are describing now. Hire an attorney for an initial consultation and he/she will spell it all out for you.

  7. I was charged with Owi 17 months ago, shouldn't this be dismissed for failure to prosecute? Does the clock run out for inaction?

    I believe the statute of limitations for this offense would be 3 years, so that is the test. Did they file the action within 3 years of the incident? You will want an attorney to argue that point if you have an argument to make and you will want an attorney to represent you on the OWI 1st if you aren't going to be able to argue that point, so hire an attorney ASAP.

    No. Even allowing everything you say is true for the sake of argument, your marriage is still valid.

    Someone is being accused (or was convicted) of driving with a prohibited alcohol concentration ("PAC"). The person's blood alcohol concentration ("BAC") was .13. Forf.u would mean unclassified forfeiture (meaning it doesn't follow the typical penalty classification for forfeitures.

    This question is WAY too fact-specific and important to your future for you to be asking for a quick free answer on here. If you guess wrong about what is required of you, you could have serious problems. On the other hand, you don't want to get hoodwinked into being on the registry if you don't need to. Hire an attorney to do the research and report back to you. Your agent in Iowa should be able to give you a straight answer about what needs to be done to transfer the probation to another...
