    Yes, if you earn an income, you have to pay taxes. You lost your right to vote because you violated the law. That does not give you a free pass to violate a different law. Yes it is legal for the government to collect taxes in that situation. You do have political representation, you just lost your right to vote for your choice of representation. It is not taxation without representation.

    There is something called the "litigation privilege" but it does not apply to the facts you set forth. If a person denies a fact in responding to a request for admission, then that is their response. If you have evidence to prove the denial is false, then you will be able to use that evidence to impeach the person at trial, or to establish the elements of your claims.

  3. My item was removed from Ebay yet others are still selling the same/similar items. Is this discrimination or litigation?

    The answer is probably not. Ebay is not required to allow you to sell anything. It is possible there are other circumstances involving the other sellers that are different from yours.

    If they were negligent in allowing the money to be withdrawn, then yes, the insurance company could be held liable. You need to speak with an attorney that handles insurance cases. You also need to contact the police about the identity theft.

    If you are talking about giving testimony in trial or at deposition, the attorney is allowed to ask you questions. You cannot cross-examine the attorney. You can ask him questions, but he does not have to answer. If you are a party, you can ask the petitioner questions. As for finding an attorney that might be willing to represent you on a limited basis, use the AVVO find a lawyer feature and look for family law attorneys.

    Service at the wrong address, even though the right party eventually got the papers, will not be considered proper service. Contact the process server, let them know they got it wrong and try to get them to go out again. They should be willing to do it again until they get it right.

    If you don't show up, the court can treat the request as if it is unopposed and grant her everything she is asking. Try and get some help. There is legal aid available, and organizations that help with family law cases. Even if you don't get help, you still should show up and explain why your visits should not be shortened, and why you should not be responsible for her fees. If you don't show up you could end up owing even more.

    Check with your attorney or the public defender that handled your case. Or call the court where your case was pending. I will edit this so criminal defense attorneys see it.

    Yes, they can do this and they do it all the time. If you want it registered, then you will have to pay the amounts to get it registered. Contact the prior owner and ask them to pay for the time they owned it. If they refuse, you can take them to small claims court since your claim is probably less than $10,000.

    If both parties agree, then a written contract can be amended by a subsequent written agreement or addendum signed by all parties. It might be worth it to contact the attorney that did the original agreement to make sure any addendum does not adversely impact your rights.
