    Not responding to a mailed ticket will have no consequence. The next step however, will be the State attempting to serve you with process in person. If you get served in person (or find papers on your front door) you must take some action or you may be defaulted and your license may be suspended. Photo radars are objectionable to many people including many judges, so I always advise people to fight them.

  2. Can I bankrupt my past due HOA fees?

    Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy would eliminate your personal liability on the past due HOA but it cannot remove the lien. Thus, in many instances it does little good for people who want to keep their properties because the HOA retains its rights under state law to foreclose even though it cannot sue you personally post-bankruptcy discharge.

    I agree with everything that has been said. Failure to disclose assets can be a serious issue (and is a federal crime). Speak with your attorney ASAP regarding amending your schedules and, if necessary, your plan.

  4. What is a felony speeding ticket and what are possible consequences

    Most likely he was cited under ARS 28-701.02, which is excessive speed. It's not a felony, but is a class 3 misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine. I've handled quite a few of these and have never had a client get jail time, but obviously each case is different.

  5. How can I get a second lien on a home released by the bank? It was included in a bankruptcy three years ago.

    I agree with the prior answer. Chapter 7 discharges the debt, but the lien remains. You can either negotiate for a lien release with the second lienholder, usually for a lump sum payment. Or, you may be eligible to file a Chapter 13 to strip the lien.

  6. Does this shirt design violate any copyrights?

    There are a number of considerations and caveats in your question, but here is two cents. When you grab an image from Google, you have to determine (1) whether the image is subject to copyright protection and if so, whether your use of the image is permitted by the copyright owner. In your hypo I will assume that the image from Google is subject to protection and is controlled by a copyright owner who has reserved all rights--i.e. your use is entirely unpermitted. In your hypo you would then...

  7. Can an employer force a me to resign so they do not have to pay unemployment benefits?

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    Make it clear to your employer that you are not resigning and that they are going to have to terminate you. Put this in a signed written letter and give it to HR and your boss. Keep a copy for yourself. Also send a dated email stating that you are not resigning. If they falsify the documents to characterize your termination as a resignation, you can dispute it and will have some evidence to back up your claim.

    If he filed Chapter 7(or Chapter 11) in 1999 and received a discharge he would have been precluded from filing another Chapter 7 for 8 years from the date of the previous filing. That time has expired and he would be eligible for Chapter 7 again today. The time requirements for filing a Chapter 13 are even less so he could also file under Chapter 13 today. Debts incurred by fraud can be excluded from discharge but you would have to bring an adversary proceeding in the bankruptcy to have the...

    I agree with the prior answer for the most part. There might, however, be an issue if you had this job lined up and knew that your income would be $140k going forward when you filed your petition. In that case, your Schedule I would need to reflect your income and any anticipated changes. But, assuming you had no idea you would get this job, your schedules do not need to be amended. As for your discharge, I really don't understand why you think you would lose it. Also, not telling your...

  10. Phoenix Photo Speeding Ticket - Accurate? Enforceable?

    The law authorizing photo radars on freeways in Arizona does not allow the assessment of points to your license. It's purely a revenue generating device for the State. Generally for tickets on the freeways, you first receive a Notice of Violation in the mail, which is not filed with the court. It's the State's first attempt at scaring you into paying the fine, but there is no consequence for simply ignoring it. If you don't respond to the mailed Notice of Violation, generally a civil...
