Last night I got into an argument with my finances step sister. , I held a mop about five inches from her face to prove I cleaned so she could see it clear as day and she didn't like that too much so she slapped it out of my hand and proceeded to ...
Taking pictures of the mop may not be necessary. Harassment for fighting is a criminal offense that can be charged as either a summary offense or a misdemeanor. If a summary offense, it
will appear on a criminal background check until it is expunged. If you have no other offenses following conviction, you can apply to have it expunged after 5 years. In Pennsylvania, a summary offense carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $300 fine, though specific fines may be set out by law for certain offenses. If charged as a misdemeanor, the fines are greater and you could be exposed to as much as 1 year in prison. The amount of the penalty depends in part on any prior record you might have. In general, first time offenders do not see any jail time. If charged as a misdemeanor, as a first-time offender, it is also possible to seek entry into a diversionary program such as ARD that would allow expungement. Otherwise misdemeanor offenses cannot be expunged, although some can be sealed after 10 years. It is advisable that you hire a criminal defense attorney and focus on preventing a conviction.

You could have been facing significantly more fines as well as jail time for small amount of marijuana offense, paraphernalia charges, and/or a possible DUI under 75 Pa.C.S. 3802(d)(1) if you had any marihuana metabolites in your system. You should contact the Court about a payment plan to spread the cost over a period of time. Also inquire about expunging the offense from your record. If its a summary offense, you can do so after 5 years.See question
1) If a default civil judgment in another state was issued to a debtor prior to marriage (5+ years ago, never hit credit), is a joint bank account between the spouses in PA, subject to satisfying the debt (assuming bank account freezing) took plac...
(1) Yes, it can be garnished initially but the non-judgment account holder can file exemptions to reclaim that property. Note, he or she will need to act promptly and will need to convince the garnishee and the garnishor that the money belongs to the other spouse.
(2) The answer to this question really depends on the wage garnishment laws of Maryland and New York, not just Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania generally does not permit wage garnishment to satisfy civil judgments.
(3) It will apply to all Assets held by that bank in the United States, not just assets held in a particular state
It might be a good idea to open separate bank accounts for the time being. It also might be worthwhile to exploring settlement of the judgment in New York. Or even considering bankruptcy if it is a significant sum.See question

Yes, as long as you have a valid license in your home country (not an international license but rather a license from your home country).
75 Pa.C.S. § 1502(3). Persons exempt from licensing.
The following persons are not required to obtain a driver's license under this chapter: (3) Any nonresident who is at least 16 years of age and who has in possession a valid driver's license issued in the person's home state or country except that a person who has been issued a valid driver's license in a country other than the United States or Canada shall be exempt only upon showing a satisfactory understanding of official traffic-control devices. A nonresident may only drive the class or classes of vehicles in this Commonwealth for which the person is licensed to drive in the person's home state or country subject to all restrictions contained on the license.
Package shipped from florida was sent to Philadelphia PA. I accidentally typed in the wrong street number when I ordered. I found out about the mistake after reading an uodate email that the parcel had been delivered. I found out that there is ano...
The answer, in part, depends on the language of any purchase and shipping terms you consent to when ordering the product. The manufacturer, seller, and distributor could each have their own terms. It also depends on whether the mistake was mutual and where the package ultimately wound up being delivered. Since the street number and zip code were different than a real address you might have something to argue. Depending on the value of the merchandise you may wish to file a small claims action but beware of any mandatory arbitration language in the contract.See question
