I recently received a citation to appear in court (I'm assuming- as the officer said I was yet did not circle yes or no on the form). On this citation it also has the time of trial as 1800 (6pm); the particular court is closed as of 5pm daily. I e...
You don't mention the court but the city of Duncan often holds court for speeding tickets at 6 pm. and that may be the case for some magistrate courts. The best option is to call the clerk and ask. If this is a serious ticket you need to either appear of retain an attorney rather than just paying the ticket. In South Carolina you do have the right to a jury trial.
My brother has been told he has cancer so it was to my understanding that the estate would be left to the other three to keep things straight ; then after his sickness 2 heirs had words leaving their share to the youngest of their gran children i...
The above attorneys are correct. If you did a deed of distribution to all four heirs equally, assuming that she passed without a will, then it appears that would be the proper division of the property. They can transfer their share to anyone or possibly one of the other heirs could buy them out. If the estate has not closed and you have not recorded the deed, it may be better to petition the court to allow you to sell the property and divide the proceeds.
My husband and I are divorcing and doing a Pro Se divorce. We are not fighting over anything and I have agreed to let him have the house as long as he lives there but if he goes to sell it I want half of what it is sold for. He agrees with that an...
While I agree with Mr. Burgess, I would go further and insist that your name be on the deed as a tenant in common if that is not already the case. If his name is the only one on the deed, he could sell it without your knowledge. Then there is also the question of who is going to pay the taxes, insurance and maintenance on the house. You may want to talk to an attorney before you go through with this agreement.See question
I was convicted of a DUI after DMVH had determined my driving privileges are clear. I thought it was all over until a magistrate found me guilty at a bench trial that I was not present for.
You may be confusing the Administrative Hearing with the DUI criminal trial. They are two separate actions. The Administrative hearing is only to determine whether your license will be suspended for failure to take the breathalyzer test.
I would suggest that you contact an attorney ASAP to see if you still have time to file a motion for a new trial or either an appeal, normally ten days after the conviction.
I received a speeding ticket and wanted to use google earth. Do I have to have the screenshots printed out or may a bring a computer to the hearing? I've read on the federal level that google earth maps have been used as evidence and were not co...
In South Carolina the officer is the prosecutor. The court date on your ticket is a first appearance and usually you can negotiate a reduction directly with the officer. If you cannot reach an agreement and this is a serious ticket, ask for a trial and retain an attorney to represent you. I agree that Google Earth is probably not going to be of any use to you anyway unless there were some unusual circumstances.
House is in probate, and the policy in up for renewal, current Ins company said that since the house in not in your name you can't insure the house ...House is up for sale, but will take awhile to sell .. so am I suppose to just go with no insuran...
In order to title the house in the name of the heirs, a probate action is required. How you will need to proceed depends on a lot of factors such as whether the house was held joint with the right of survivorship, whether it has been more than ten years since either of them passed, etc. You also cannot sell the house unless there has been a probate of their estates since it is still in their name. Contact a Greenville probate attorney and arrange for a consultation on how to proceed.
My parents had a will made when I was a child & my father went to another lawyer behind her back in 2007 & left everything to one child & her husband. She my sister & I were not listed. My mother was the main breadwinner in the family. She passed ...
There is not enough information for anyone to give you an answer. You would need to consult with a local attorney since it depends on which parent passed first, assuming that both have passed, and whether their estates have been probated and when they were probated. In South Carolina you can disinherit your child but you cannot disinherit your spouse. It is not that unusual for a will to "disappear".
My grandparents are elderly and ill. My grandfather and his wife, my step-grandmother, for over 20 years own a mobile home and the land it sits on. My father, his sister, and brother are said to receive home and land in the will. My father, his si...
Someone will need to go tot he probate court and obtain a guardianship and conservatorship over your step grandmother. That will give someone the authority to make health care decisions and financial decisions for her. While this can often be done without an attorney, if you need one, try the find an attorney at the top of the page.
My husband walked out on us and locked me out of the joint account the very same day. At the time I had to focus on my kids. We both are retired military. My regular retirement was going to an individual account, as suggested by the lawyer, but th...
I assume that this is military disability. Attorney Hayes is correct, military disability is not a marital asset and cannot be divided by the Family Court. Federal law, the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act, found at 10 U.S.C. 1408, exempts VA disability payments from division in a divorce. You will need to file suit against him in circuit court.
My wife and I have been separated for 13 months. No court order separation but family court said the text she sent saying"I packed my stuff and I'm leaving" was satisfactory. She established a new residence with her current fiancé and has not been...
Mr. Holland is correct in that law enforcement is unlikely to get involved. Contact a divorce attorney and file for a divorce based on adultery. The family court can divide the marital property and make her return any that is yours including the dog.
