  • What do i do when i have signed a conviction to a class 1 felony and have been charged with a class x

    i have papers saying it was a 4 year sentence at 50 percent with 2 years parole when a class x is 6 at 50 percent 3 years parole

    Judy’s Answer

    You clearly have a lawyer Please discuss this and all other questions with your attorney. The charges, even when reduced, are serious. You should not rely on online responses to your very crucial questions, and the lawyers here should not answer questions of people who are already represented by counsel.

    My daughters father and I used to get along very well and cop aren't together until he got a new girlfriend. He will barley talk to me and isn't the same. He told me previously I would get money from his work mans comp settlement but legally am I ...

    Judy’s Answer

    If you have a child support order in place, you may be entitled to a portion of your child's father's Workmen's Comp. case since his income will have changed. Your first step is to make sure you have a child support order in place and to that effect, you should speak to, and hire, an attorney who handles child support matters.

  • Can I sue my ex-spouse for not truthfully answering the U.S status question on our mortgage documents?

    My ex-spouse applied and received FHA loan for our home. His name only appears on the documents. This puts me at a disadvantage when I need financing for our child's increasing activities. He went to the closing alone! now, I know why!

    Judy’s Answer

    A lawsuit against your husband would do no good and probably would be unsuccessful. You should speak in person to an attorney who handles real estate and mortgage matters and if there is an immigration factor to your inquiry, you should address that with the attorney also.

  • My boyfriend parents took power of POA They are trying to get an order of protection on me .I fear next they will evict me .

    My ex boyfriend left me last year in April of 2014. He has since allowed me and my children to stay on in the house he owns.Tonight a sheriffs deputy served me the denied order of protection. In the order my exs father said I was causing problems ...

    Judy’s Answer

    Your questions are all over the board. The order protection has nothing to do with a potential eviction case. Consult with an attorney to discuss the contents of the order of protection denial and whether you need to appear in court. As for eviction, if your former boyfriend wishes to evict you and his parents have the authority to act on his behalf, then they will have to do it properly. Discuss the eviction process with your attorney.

    Judy’s Answer

    Can you be legally arrested for disorderly conduct? Clearly the answer is yes, since you were. Do you have defenses or is this a good case? That is a different matter. What can you do? Hire an attorney. How can you trust the legal system? That is a personal concern that cannot really be answered here but you might wish to discuss it with your attorney.

  • Test driving a vehicle involved in a hit and run, who is responsible?

    The GM allowed me to take the vehicle overnight even though I stated im not sure what type of insurance I have. After leaving the lot, I picked my Mom up in the car to get her opinion. After, entering the expressway a car slam into the back of me....

    Judy’s Answer

    Your question is confusing but why did you take ownership of the vehicle that was hit? When you took the car overnight, did you sign papersindicating who would be responsible/ how you would be insured in the event of an accident? It is also unclear why you did not know what kind of insurance you had or even why the dealer would release a vehicle yo you without also verifying your coverage. . At this point, you probably need to consult in person with an attorney who handles traffic accident liability.

    Judy’s Answer
