I had a detective call me saying he is going to charge me with disturbing the peace and I need to go into the local police station and pick up a ticket. It took him a long time to conclude his investigation from the first time he called me is ther...
The statute of limitations for criminal offenses is measured in years. Unless the "long time" the investigation took is more than a couple of years the charges are likely to be timely filed.
If it becomes too much trouble to serve you with a summons, the detective has the option to simply have an arrest warrant issued and wait until you have contact with the police.See question

You need to make sure that the complaint and summons have not actually been filed with a court. If they have, then you need to file an answer and prepare for litigation. If it's just a "draft" then it can be ignored.See question

One option is to get an estimate from another contractor to determine what it will cost to make the job right. Then, if that is more than you still owe (if anything) on the contract price with the original roofer, you can sue them for the difference.See question
My wife and I signed titled of car registration in both our names as well as two power of attorney. I used it for a traded in on a newer car. And the loan will be in my name only. The dealer said I had to her sign a piece of paper saying she gav...
If you are going to use the car as a trade in, the vehicle has to pass from your wife to the dealership. It sounds like they figure it will be easier for her to sign the vehicle over to you (as a gift) and then for you to sign the vehicle over to the dealership rather than to have her made part of the transfer of the vehicle to the dealership since she isn't involved with the title or loan on the new vehicle.
This isn't the only way that can be done, but it does appear to make sense.See question
Me and my wife was in small claims court for my old shop i was leasing .The ex landlords opening statement was well your honor this case has to do with infidelity and Theft . The judge stop him right there and warn him he was open himself up for ...
You can sue, but you cannot win. A litigation privilege generally protects statements made in court from consideration in a defamation case. Further, you have to prove actual damages as a result of the defamation. What financial loss did you suffer because of the allegation (which apparently nobody present believed) of infidelity? If you have no damages, you cannot have a successful lawsuit.See question
My ex son-in-law submitted a motion to the court to receive more visitation with my granddaughter; In his reason for requesting more time with my granddaughter he stated that I mentally abused my daughters creating a mis trust of men and other ps...
No, you cannot successfully sue. Among the numerous reasons that a lawsuit would not be successful is that you cannot establish that you suffered a financial loss as a result of this statement. Without damages, you have no civil claim. Additionally, litigation privilege is likely to be a hurdle to any such claim.See question
My ex wife to the car in the divorce I have he over a year to refinance it next month is the end date if she doesn't refinance it in time does that make that car mine since I'm the only one on the title?
No, not unless your divorce orders actually provide that the car will be your property if she doesn't refinance it.
If she does not comply with the requirement to refinance the vehicle, then you can seek sanctions related to the failure to follow the orders. You could ask for the vehicle to be turned over to you so that you could finish paying on the car and keep the vehicle. However, that is only one of the possible outcomes and it doesn't happen automatically.See question
We have already recorded a mechanics lien on a customer refusing to pay for septic pumping that we did at his home. The 6 month deadline from the date of work was provided is coming up in two weeks. I believe you can file an extension on the deadl...
No, you cannot extend the length of the lien. The purpose of a mechanic's lien is to prevent the sale or transfer of the property before you can pursue collection of the debt.
In any event, as noted in another response, the expiration of the lien does not eliminate the debt. You still have the right to sue for breach of contract and such an action is usually a lot less expensive to pursue than a judicial foreclosure.See question
My son just got it out-of-court for a accident in December he received six months unsupervised probation. A couple weeks ago he got a speeding ticket that he hasn't gone to court for will this affect probation
In most cases, a speeding ticket will not affect probation.See question
Caught speeding 84mph in 55mph a month ago, automatic summons. He pushed court 3 months out. Well I received another ticket 42mph in 30mph. Really the sign posted says 35mph. I had 9 points remaining until these 2 tickets... Suggestions?
If you have two speeding tickets and 9 points to work with there is a good chance that you will be able to negotiate pleas that will allow you to keep your license (so long as you don't get another ticket for a significant period of time). This depends on the prosecutor's discretion, but it should be possible and your chances will be improved if you work with an attorney.See question
