I'm insured by Liberty Mutual, and got a ticket for going 79 in a 65 zone in New York State, how will this effect my insurance rate?
NY & MA are part of the driver's interstate compact, which means a speeding conviction in NY gets reported to MA and your insurance company surcharges you as if you received the conviction in MA. Seek NY traffic ticket defense counsel to represent you so you do not have to come back to court. Check Avvo profiles and retain a lawyer with hundreds of positive client reviews.See question

Unless Betty marries John the ring gets returned to him, because it is a gift based on future performance; i.e., marrying John. Under NY law, John gets the ring back.See question

Actually, you can't afford NOT to retain counsel. If you do not want to sacrifice what it takes to retain counsel, then either avoid the police at all costs, or surrender yourself to the court like a sheep to slaughter and let nature take its course. If you were previously represented by an assigned lawyer though that person is likely still your lawyer, so you may want to call that person or go to their office first. If you do not recall the lawyer's name just call the court and they will give you the lawyers name and number on the case.See question
a friend of mine is trying to fill out paperwork for a divorce. she has two kids and was in an abusive relationship. she said he is a good dad to the kids just a crappy husband. she obtained paperwork for the uncontested but is having trouble fill...
Uncontested divorces can be quite confusing and "vexing" as we like to say in the law. In addition, no court will agree to, and give a divorce decree upon, an agreement of no child support. They simply will not sign off on it. Getting divorced is not about "filling out paperwork." It's about litigating a legal proceeding. While doing it uncontested is the way to go, you should still retain counsel to ensure everything is completed and filed properly and that you reach your end goal of executing on a divorce. While we do not do uncontested divorces, my colleague, Elisa Claro, does. She can be reached on Avvo here: https://www.avvo.com/attorneys/10601-ny-elisa-claro-4780961.html. Best of luck!See question
