    You'll want to retain an attorney who can file a petition to quash and recall the warrant; you can then appear in court and, given good cause, the court MAY quash the warrant. Of course, there are never any guarantees, and whether the warrant is quashed will depend on a number of factors, i.e., balance due, ability to pay, length warrant was outstanding, factors under which warrant was issued, etc. James Rowe is an attorney with The Law Firm of Rowe & Associates in Illinois.

    If the house was/is owned by your mother and/or you had some personal responsibility for the debt, then the answer is yes, they probably can. However, more details are needed to really be able to advise you and answer your question. A private consult with an attorney would be best.

    Depending on the crime charged and the circumstances surrounding the conviction, you may be able to petition a court to expunge your record. Sometimes, where you cannot expunge you may be able to seal the conviction. Consult with an attorney who practices in this area, and be prepared to give the attorney the specific crime you were convicted of.

    No. If you go to court and obtain a judgment against her for the back child support, you may be able to lien the settlement proceeds. Further, you could ask that a court enter an order freezing the lawsuit funds pending resolution of your claim to arrears.

    it likely amounts to fraud; further, if things don't work out with the new boyfriend, the new boyfriend may find himself liable for child support later in life by virtue of his signing any voluntary acknowledgment of paternity papers at the hospital. This entire situation will ultimately be a problem for both mother and child, and likely even the boyfriend. Either way, the real father can go to court and obtain orders of paternity and visitation - further, such fraudulent conduct may give...

    I practice personal injury law in Illinois, and based on my experience you have two options: you can either attempt to settle the claim with the doctor's insurer, or you can retain an attorney and have them handle the matter. I often caution clients against going it alone, simply because insurance companies are only ever concerned with their bottom line - which means they are not looking out for your best interests, and are certainly not concerned about paying you fair value for your injuries....

    I won't bore you with the details of the at-will status of employees in Illinois because as your question indicates you already know it is very anti-employee. I counsel clients all the time in matters like this; and would be glad to discuss your potential case with you further. However, if there was a contract governing the terms of your employment that stated either a specific duration of time OR specific conditions under which you can be fired, then that may trump the state's terrible at-...

    It will be hard to earn leniency fgiven the situation you are in. If you truly have an alcohol problem, I would counsel you to do as other counsel suggested. If you don't, the effort may appear (and in fact will be) disingenuous, which may buy you more fury than leniency. Without knowing which County your case is pending in, it is hard to say how the Judge will react. In Cook County, I would expect the supervision will be vacated and a conviction entered, and then this time you'll likely...

    Have you incurred damages? Perhaps the cost of the text message would suffice. Also, you'll need to determine how they obtained your cell phone number, just to ensure you did not somehow/previously consent to receive the messages. If there is an opportunity to opt out, be sure to mention that to any attorney evaluating your claim.
