I was told that after the case was dismissed or dropped I could go back to sue the driver of the other car. Can you help me? I believe that the other driver was at fault.
Well, it depends what you did between February and now. It has been eleven months. Did you see doctors, go for therapy, report aches and pains? Did you do nothing for over ten months and now that your case is dismissed for whatever reason ( no one showed?) you want to sue someone. If you aren't hurt, if you weren't hurt, if you have no injury and you just think the other side is at fault, who cares. That is what an accident is. Before you waste an attorney's time, what is it that you want.
Did you miss work? Did you pay hospital. Bills out of pocket? Did insurance not cover your car? Are you still injured and can't return to work? Does a part of your body not work because of the accident? What?
Is it possible for me to take her in?
No, you can't take her in to her home without advising everyone immediately, the group home, her social worker, her appointed attorney. She is in the care and custody of the Government, the department of Social services. You should call their emergency Child Protective Service number and notify them that you have a group home runaway and give them all of the information. The emergency worker will take a report and get it to the placement team that put her there. You need to keep names, numbers, times and notes on everyone you speak to so you don't get into trouble. You must tell the child that you are required by law to contact everyone. They will have emergency CINA hearings that you will attend with her. Who knows, you may end up a placement option BUT you must do it through and with the system at least until she is 18. You also must analyze her options with the group home. Sometimes these homes help transition 17 year olds into independent living quarters and you don't want to interrupt that program/process if it is available to her.See question
any Ideals on how much longer before I hear. Something at least
Did you try your Governor first? Usually that is all you need! Make no mistake about it, that in itself is just about impossible to come by. The governor, let alone the President, don't feel they have an obligation to read requests for pardons. in their minds! yeah! you did your time! but you are convicted and they owe you nothing. Who said they ever had to respond to you? You can be sure that letter to the President from two and a half years ago is in the round filing cabinet ( trashcan). Sorry. Try locally---the Governor.See question
My BAC was well over .2 but I am 20. The officer told me I would only lose my license for 2 months is this true?
Underage drinkers are not allowed to drive with anything over .02. In their system. 20 is under 21. I am assuming you got a ticket for violating a license restriction. MVA have there own rules, zero tolerance. It is six months in some states, one year in others. Maybe in your state it is 60 days as your officer told you but I doubt it. Officers never understand ramifications of anything because they have nothing to do with MVA or anything else and their advice is usually wrong. You need an MVA attorney and you need to request a MVA hearing within the time frame they give you.See question
i have a valid calif. drivers license and auto insurance. i didn't get the ticket. can i get my car out of impound before the cost is too high?
Absolutely. You need to call first so you don't waste your time. You should be told that you need to bring payment , license and registration proving it is your vehicle. The impound lot has a normal cop running it who shouldn't care about your case and shouldn't ask any questions about your friend's license. If they do, just say you can't believe your friend would do anything wrong , ever. May I have my car back please. Each police department has a main number that will tell you where their impound lot is, the hours of operation and the number. The person there will ask you info about the car/ plate number and tell you how much you owe and what to bring. Hurry, those fees are adding up!See question

If a Protective Order was served on you to remove you from your home, that has most of the report. If you are charged with assault, you are a defendant and you will be served with a Statement of Charges that has the report he is complaining of. The attorney who defends you will get the police report. If there are no charges you can go to the local police station and see if you can get a copy of all reports relative to you ( show license) as you are a party. Good luck because this is , as my brother stated, the beginning of the end: domestic violence, assault, criminal charges, all could be just to place himself in favor for divorce as you have stated no domestic violence really occurred. No more statements on the internet and you need attorneys.....divorce, criminal depending upon what you are charged with. Since, you are thrown out of your home, you need to start with divorce .See question
Is it possible to have the records sealed regarding my charge of DWI and arrest? The case was dismissed upon my pleading down to obstruction of a roadway. But would like to have the arrest and charge of DWI sealed. If so what are the steps I ne...
In our state you can do a Motion to sever traffic (DUI ) from criminal in order to do an expungement but both of my brothers that answered this question are from your state and they seem to say otherwise. The DWI should be on your traffic record, however. You never pled to that so your traffic record will clearly show that , as will anything that is on line. many people get pulled over for traffic offenses and are not guilty, your record will reflect the same. Obstruction of roadway clearly shows you weren't drunk by everyone who sees it.See question
My girlfriend was picked up on a warrant for recieving stolen property under 10,000. They notified the county that had the warrant but they have not come to pick her up. How long can they hold her before she can be released?
Everyone will give you a different answer for this. The warrant is in the system. The person gets picked up. The jurisdiction that issue the warrant gets called and asked, " will you be coming to pick this person up?" If they say " no. ", the individual will be released at the hearing within 24 hours or the next working day. First the person is brought before a commissioner within 24 hours but the commissioner can't release the individual. Next the person has a bond hearing within 24 hours or the next available work day. If the Judge has already learned the issuing jurisdiction won't pick up the individual, that person can be released, or the person will be held until the time period is up if it is unknown.
The individual can contest extradition on two grounds: not me, didn't do it. That slows things down and there is usually enough evidence to show it is who the issuing jurisdiction is looking for. Extradition of 30 days doesn't even start until the resolution of is it the person they want is resolved. Most waive extradition hearing to get the clock started so they can deal with the charges in the issuing jurisdiction.
tricked into signing a confession. I was told I as signing a form that said I was not going to ride the ambuance....
Very confusing. Fire and rescue personnel do not take confessions. If you were turning yourself in for a crime you thought, the operative word thought, you committed (didn't know?????) you were probably talking to any cop who would listen. If you are saying you were "tricked" into not riding in the ambulance, you were probably at the scene of an incident where the crime occurred and the police were present and you were yacking away. Hopefully, you have been to the doctor since , and you have medical records of your trauma and injury. Bring all of that plus whatever the cops gave you to your lawyer and let her deal with the mess you have gotten yourself into.See question
I have recently (3 month ago) vacated a criminal conviction, but it still shows up on my background check. Also, court records are still available online so any one can see what I have been charged with. That doesn’t seem right to me. Why would yo...
I don't know what vacated means with respect to criminal records. A criminal record has to be expunged to get out of police stations data base, the court history, etc. Vacating is an action a judge can take but it is not expungement. With respect to expungement, it is not foolproof either. Immigration will always be able to access it so you CAN NEVER TELL IMMIGRATION A LIE.......THEY HAVE YOUR REORD ALWAYS. The FBI and other federal entities can always get it as well. It also takes more than 90 days for full compliance of all agencies.See question
