A friend was wrongly cconvicted. He got 25 years for a crime he didnt commit. The original attorney doesnt handle appeals. I dont mind having to put up a retainer fee but 10,000 up front is crazy.
$10k for an appeal of a criminal conviction is not out of line AT ALL.See question
Is it illegal
It is very easy to look up the age of consent in the various states. You obviously have internet access, so do some research.
I think the much more important issue would be "why would a 16 year old want to have sex with a 37 year old - AND VICE VERSA?!?!?" I can't imagine a scenario where that is a good idea.
If you're the 16 year old, think really long and hard about heading down that road.
If you're the 37 year old, shame on you.
my landlord filed an eviction and I was in the process of finding new housing. I was at my girlfriend's house on the other side of town for a couple of days while looking and the landlord removed all of my belongings, including some very expensive...
Sounds like you were on notice.
If the writ of possession had been properly issued by the court and the sheriffs/marshals properly served it, you have no recourse.
If both of those things didn't happen, you have recourse for unlawful eviction.See question
My bf went to mediation with his x, signed the papers agreeing to no child support. So she would agree and sign without going to court, He has full custody of their son, but now he needs child support.
I agree with the prior answer. There are just too many variables to answer that question in this forum. If the mediation were recent, he's probably not going to be successful.See question
I talked with my lawyer on Fri. Now I'm looking at my info on public website and it says he filed for counsel conflict. What does this mean?
As you have a lawyer, you should be asking them. It could mean a scheduling conflict, a conflict of interest involving the other attorney or any number of things.See question
My parents want to go camping, I do not. I'm 17 but I will be 18 in August. I've explained I don't want to go but they didn't like that answer and have resulted to "forcing" me to go. I've been told I legally don't have to go but I need a source t...
Long story short, you've been told wrong. Until you are an adult or become emancipated, you are subject to your parents' authority.See question
I am 18 months into a divorce case. Things are getting pretty stressful. The defendant filed an answer to my complaint, but did not file a counterclaim. Can I dismiss the case?
You certainly are permitted to dismiss the case. However, keep in mind that if you do, you will need to start all over, should you decide you do want to divorce that spouse later. I'm relocating your question into the proper practice are of Divorce & Separation.See question
The fee, they say is for a "Clearance Letter" from them that he needs before he can sell his home. Is this legal for them to do?
While this is frustrating, it is 100% legal. Some homeowners associations charge up to $500 for a closing clearance letter. That is one of the costs of living in a neighborhood with an HOA.
The closing contract will state whether the buyer or seller has to pay for that, though. The trend right now is that the buyer pays for it. See the community association disclosure exhibit to the contract. This assumes that there are realtors involved. I am referring to their standardized form.See question
I am 14 months into the divorce process. Also 5 months pregnant. There has been no activity since August. A court date is scheduled for April- on a motion to compel. I wish to continue divorce proceedings only after my child is born.
That is a very reasonable question. It's up to the Judge whether to delay a divorce for 6 months or more, due to your pregnancy. I've seen it done AND I've seen such requests denied. They tend to be awarded during riskier pregnancies, in my experience.
I recommend getting your physician to write a recommendation that you avoid extraordinary stress and file Motion to Continue the case until a month or so after the child is born.
That being said, it sounds like you might be unrepresented. Especially given a pregnancy during the divorce process, you need to have a professional working for you.See question

It all depends on what your lease says about repairs. If it doesn't say anything, this kind of equipment is usually the responsibility of the Landlord.
Read your lease.See question
