Will your mail find its way "one floor down"? What if you get an important notice from the immigration services?
The statutes specify that aliens must notify the government of permanent changes of address. Failing to comply with this requirement is a basis for deportation from the US. If the government wants an alien out of the US, the government will throw this charge in with all the other charges.

I am not aware of any law in WA that would prohibit an employer from considering a prospective employee's criminal law history in deciding whether to hire the person. The City of Seattle was considering passing such a law but has not done so.
There may be be other states that have such laws.
In WA, the default employment relationship is at-will. Either the employer or the employee can end the employment relationship at any time for any reason with or without notice. The employer is...
WA's Residential landlord-tenant act is Chapter 59.18 RCW. The statutes can be read at: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=59.18 .
If you are in the city limit of Seattle, Seattle has more stringent ordinances. The Seattle housing inspectors may be useful.
Among the landlord's duties as given in RCW 59.18.060 is: "(4) Provide a reasonable program for the control of infestation by insects, rodents, and other pests at the initiation of the tenancy and, except in the case of a...
The recipient (here, you) of an inheritance pays no federal income tax on the amount. WA currently does not have a state income tax.
Unless the decedent has an estate worth several million dollars, it is unlikely that the decedent's estate would be paying any taxes relating to the decedent's estate.
If you are receiving some sort of needs-based public assistance, your qualification for the public assistance may be affected by receiving the money.
In WA, a person who operates a vehicle without having at least the minimum level of insurance coverage required by law and causes $700 or more in property damages (or physical injuries) to another person will have the person's driver's license suspended.
So, if you do not resolve your dispute with the other driver, your driver's license will be suspended.
More information is available at the Department of Licensing at http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/suspended.html .
Someone would need to look over the documents and talk with the court clerk to tell you what happened.
What could have happened was that the check the petitioner used to pay the clerk bounced. When the petitioner first showed up at the clerk's office, the clerk gave him a case number. Afterwards, the clerk's office tried to cash the check which is returned unpaid.
In WA, the case number in superior court would be in the format YY-N-xxxxx-C. YY is the last two digits of the year in which...
In WA, there is no requirement that a will be witnessed by a notary.
RCW 11.12.020 (Requisites of wills — Foreign wills) provides:
(1) Every will shall be in writing signed by the testator or by some other person under the testator's direction in the testator's presence, and shall be attested by two or more competent witnesses, by subscribing their names to the will, or by signing an affidavit that complies with RCW 11.20.020(2), while in the presence of the testator and at the testator's...
Not everyone who wants a public defender gets a public defender. The person has to be below the income threshold set by the specific court.
If you are working "in a real estate business", you might not be low income. On another hand, the low income threshold for the Seattle area may be a good income in many other areas of the US.
You can find out whether you qualify for a public defender to be appointed for you by applying for one at the court where your case is being heard.
In WA, there is no statute that provides that a child is liable for the care of the child's parents. So, unless you sign an agreement agreeing to pay for your parent's debts, you are not legally liable for your parent's debts.
WA has many programs available to help indigent elderly persons. The hospital where your mother is at likely has persons who can tell you which programs are available to your mother and help her apply for them.
You should carefully review all documents before...
"I feel I was punished enough for my crime". Convicts do not get to determine what punishment they get from the court.
The court went easy on you by giving you probation. Your response was to ignore the court.
Unless you and your attorney can convince the court to give you a second chance, the court may impose the jail time for which you were sentenced.
"I feel I need help for my addiction as well." You can help yourself by obtaining whatever treatment you need. Getting treatment...
