About 12 years ago I was arrested for check deception. It was just a checkbook mistake on my part, but definitely not intentional. I was entered into a deferment program and was told that's all there was to it unless I got in trouble again(which I...
Prosecution was deferred. You were NOT convicted of anything. The fact of the arrest will remain on any NCIC report that is run.See question
Nephew with bipolar didn't appear in court 4 times for driving without seatbelt, was driving with suspended license and pulled over because headlight out and put in jail pending court on Monday and a fine of $1,250.
There are two questions. 1.) There is no bond on a bench warrant because you failed to appear. 2.) This is not 18th century England. You CANNOT be held in custody because of a debt. If the suspended license charge was "Suspended Prior" it is NOT a traffic ticket but a Misdemeanor. If he pleads guilty or is found guilty of a Misdemeanor, he CAN serve jail time. The most common result of unpaid fines is indefinite suspension of your license. Hire a traffic attorney to represent him.
If his bipolar disorder is so bad that he cannot appear in court, he may not be fit to drive.See question

I agree with my learned colleagues. I would only add that if your husband's employer already agreed that he is permanently and totally disabled, no attorney can charge you more than $100.00. Saving that $100.00 may have cost you hundreds of thousands. Hire experienced counsel before more bad things happen.See question
I was physically assaulted 2yes ago. ER visit some plastic surgery eye exams glasses etc. At the court date he was ordered to pay all medical bills etc as his restitution. Now I have been turned over to a collection agency because the bills are...
The court just got tired of monitoring him/her. You can take the Order from the criminal to the civil court and get an immediate judgment against the defendant.
You are ALWAYS responsible for your medical bills. They should have been put through your health insurance. The Court Ordered "restitution," (repayment to you) NOT payment of your bills. The prosecutor's victim/witness department shouild have explained the process.See question
I got hurt at my job cant return they wouldnt accommodate me at my job found other employment with lower pay and they paying me wage differential but they paying me the difference from my workers comp benefits not my pay rate i was making at my jo...
I agree with all of my colleagues. For example, NEITHER of the option you note above is correct. Hourly rate has nothing to do with anything. Your AWW (average weekly wage) is what counts. Your wage differential is paid at 2/3 of the difference, In your example, based on 40 hours, you should get (1,313.60 - 440.00= 873.60x2/3) $582.40 PER WEEK.
Representing yourself is costing you $552.80, every 2 weeks.
For Illinois Workers' Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if your do not hire experienced counsel. You will have someone to guide you through the process AND when it is time to settle, an attorney can add value to your case IN EXCESS of his fee. In the last few years, employers also seek to advance the argument that when you settle a case without an attorney, your already low settlement should be further reduced by 20% so that you do not get a “windfall.” Representing yourself in Illinois is a lose-lose proposition. When you are represented, you have fewer headaches AND you get more money. It really is a no-brainer.

I am being forced to be the states witness against my boyfriend and I am going to say nothing. How long can they hold me in jail for refusing to testify.
If your testimony could incriminate you, you have a right NOT to testify and they cannot hold you. If the Prosecutor grants you transactional immunity, you WILL testify or you will remain in custody, indefinitely, because you are in contempt of court and it is within the court's discretion to hold you.See question

Unless this accident was caused by a commercial truck, it is VERY unlikely that you will get anything approaching fair. Moreover, you stated that there were "multiple airbornes and roll-overs." The at-fault driver's coverage MUST be divided among ALL injured persons. You need someone to pursue an underinsurance claim and to negotiate medical liens and subrogation interests.

First time I've been pulled over and it was for reckless driving, the officer put me under arrest and cuffed me, but then changed his mind and ticketed me with reckless driving and let me go, there was no court date on my ticket and I was told I w...
I agree with Mr. Shaw.
The reason for the delay is this: Patrol Officers only turn their tickets to the Prosecutor, periodically. The vast majority of the tickets are for infractions (fine only). Your ticket is for a Misdemeanor. A Deputy Prosecutor will have to sign off on it BEFORE it can be filed. Hire a traffic attorney ASAP to keep this off your record.See question
In my previous job, senior nurses bullied younger nurses. When I reported this to my manager, I became a target of numerous accusations, some of them severe. My manager rarely followed up other than to let me know what had been said. When th...
Mr. Shaw has provided you with an excellent analysis. Moreover, "accusations" by co-workers would have nothing to do with alleged "poor performance." One can only ask how you would be unaware of your own performance review as they generally require your signature. Moreover, the VAST MAJORITY of employers refuse to provide anything beyond dates of employment. I honestly don't believe that your former employer would be produce your entire personnel file to a prospective employer.
You are best advised to continue an aggressive job search. As Mr. Shaw has stated, you do not have any damages and you MUST NOT be responsible for creating them.See question
