    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. Most persons can file the AR-11 online for free at www.uscis.gov . Filing the form takes...

    RCW 11.12.160 (Interested witness — Effect on will) provides: (1) An interested witness to a will is one who would receive a gift under the will. (2) A will or any of its provisions is not invalid because it is signed by an interested witness. Unless there are at least two other subscribing witnesses to the will who are not interested witnesses, the fact that the will makes a gift to a subscribing witness creates a rebuttable presumption that the witness procured the gift by duress,...

    In WA, liability is not one way or the other. That is, both drivers can be at fault. While police officers can issue tickets to drivers whom the officers think are at fault, the officers do not determine the outcome of a civil case. Having the right of way does not mean that you have a license to run into the other driver. Depending on how far along the other driver had turned and how much time you had to react, you can be found to have liability. If you had insurance, your insurer...

    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...

  6. How much federal tax will I have to pay on a $5,000 inheritance from a deceased friend?

    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.

    Are you still impaired? You seem to believe that "30 over speed limit" is not "doing anything wrong". Your best course of action likely is to hire an attorney who may perhaps find someway to help you not be convicted or sentenced too harshly. Arguing that the police did not have probable cause to stop you when you were recklessly driving is likely not going to work out well for you.

    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 . You should...

    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...

    The WA assault statutes are here: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9A.36 . Under the state's statutes, assault in the fourth degree is the lowest of the four possible levels and is a gross misdemeanor. A gross misdemeanor has a maximum penalty of up to year in jail and $5,000. If she is charged by a city, the city may set lower penalties. Domestic Violence (DV) likely means she is accused of assaulting someone who is living with her or someone she used to have an intimate...
