The case: I travelled to Suriname through Miami from London Heathrow. On my way back I had a stopover of two hours in Aruba. The US customs suspected me for being a drug mule because my stay short stay in Suriname and my ticket was bought only ...
Look for an attorney who handles federal tort claims. There is a short statute of limitations and special claim must be filed. You should also speak with your US Senator's office as they may be able to assist as well.See question
Interesting question. In the US unlike much of the world, lawyers are not required to put the client through a Know Your Client drill and have them produce identification. So a lawyer might be able to assist in such a transfer provided they had no worries about it being money laundering.See question
I have dual citizenship with the US and Germany. I live in Austria. In 2014, I was arrested in Alabama for unlawful possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana 2nd degree, and drug paraphernalia. I made bail, passed a court refer...
Best to just sit tight and avoid the USA unless you absolutely must go there in which case you will need to hire a lawyer in Alabama to sort things out. It is between you and some local court in Alabama; they might issue an arrest warrant and report it to the federal database which is why you should steer clear of the US but beyond that, no worries.See question
My mother recently died. She had money in Iran. Is there a way to transfer that money from Iran to the USA? I've heard something about OFAC regulations governing something like this. Any advice/assistance would be appreciated.
This attorney authored Avvo guide seems to have some useful information:
have felony warrant in California i live in morocco now i want travel to Germany to visit my cousin? can German authority will notice the warrant from USA ?
You can check the Interpol wanted list.
However, leaving Morocco which is one of the few countries that has no extradition treaty with the US would really be dumb in my opinion. Have the cousin visit you if you have any sense at all.See question
Does US law provide a US Federal Prosecutor or US State Prosecutor a legal way to prosecute a US citizen being involved in a crime (Per US Law) in a different country? If it does, is there a legal resource out there that depicts the process?
A federal prosecutor could likely whip up some far fetched RICO or conspiracy if the crime touched the US in some way. UBS AG just plead guilty to wire fraud for fixing the LIBOR rate in London for example.See question
Hello! I am Mike. So I joined a finance broker and have invested my money in there. After I have made a little profit from the platform. When I try to withdraw my money from them, they tried many ways or find excuses to stop me doing so. They are...
Better get a lawyer on it. Unlicensed offshore broker with a "platform" generally means a Ponzi or some other scam in the works. Sometimes if you can create enough fuss before the entire thing collapses they will toss some money at you. Of course I am just reading between the lines since you haven't really given us much to go on.See question
We operate a NV company, that operates online only. We have partners that live in 4 different states, and we sre having issues determining if we operate in thoes states if the officers telecommute to work. We are trying to determine if our home of...
You call it a company and then say it has partners so it is unclear what form it is taking, a corporation or a partnership or something else. The answer depends on the circumstances. Just having an officer in another state does not necessarily constitute doing business there. An attorney will be able to help straighten this out, also be aware the answer may differ depending who is asking and why.See question
Bottom line, I need a lawyer to take up my case to get the original bank note stock certificate I currently own handled properly to be turned in. There was a merger in 1981 when a transmittal letter was sent, the custodian who bought the stock fo...
If it is listed on a major stock exchange, NYSE or NASDAQ, a retail broker should be able to help you get it deposited in an account. On the other hand if it is OTC stock, you will need a specialist broker and a lawyer.See question
I was convicted of violating the cannabis law on a recent vacation it was for a small amount. I was given a suspended sentence and served no time and I was also not deported. How will this affect me back home. The embassy says they cannot prosecut...
Of course you cannot be prosecuted for a marijuana offense that occurred outside the US. There is no jurisdiction. Since it was treated like a traffic ticket, I would suggest you just forget it. I definitely would not volunteer any information to anyone as they have no way of obtaining that record presumably. As for travel, a minor offense like that likely has no effect on travel.See question
