If you are an independent contractor then the answer will depend on your arrangement with your client (the firm that is employing you).See question
I received a summons for a court date from a debt collector. I did not have enough notice to get off of work and I am still waiting for the proof of debt to be sent to me. I called the courthouse for instructions on how I could change the date and...
You could file a motion seeking an extension of time to file an answer, but ultimately you will have to file an answer if you wish to contest the claim. You should have received an answer form with the complaint and summons. If you file an answer before the hearing date, then you do not have to appear.
If you file an answer, the case will ultimately be set for trial and you should receive notice by mail of the trial date.See question
I got a phone call for someone the other day that said they were from some arbitration thing and were bringing charges on my for a bad check from a bank account that I have not had for 15 years.
Criminal charges are brought by police or prosecutors, not by debt collectors. In this country, the police do not call and ask for payment before they arrest you. This sort of tactic is illegal, but is fairly common. The best course of action is to hang up. If you actually are contacted by police or served court papers (very doubtful) then you need to consult with an attorney.See question
Is it appropriate for me to file a counter motion for denial of this motion (with justification) immediately and prior to the judges consideration?
It is appropriate for you to file a "Response" to the motion and to include your legal defense to the judgment the plaintiff is requesting.See question
I've been married for 5 year's. We just built a house. I sold my condo and paid most of the debt in my husband's name and put the remaining in a savings account. With the new house build, we decided together to take money out of my husband's ret...
The house will be divided in the manner in which you and your husband agree or, if you cannot agree, in the manner in which the judge believes is "equitable" (fair) after a hearing. That is really all that can be said based on a one paragraph description.
With $200,000 (or so) in equity on the line, you would be foolish to file for divorce without working with an experienced family law attorney.See question
Plead guilty to two counts of 3rd degree assault with DV. No criminal background, been on Pretrial for a year, never missed check in or failed UA, have not broken restraining order. Have held down a job for entire year, paying all fines. Have lett...
This is a question you should be asking your lawyer. If you are representing yourself you are at a disadvantage.
All that anyone can say based on a one paragraph description online is that judges take the PSI recommendations very seriously and it will take a good deal of convincing to convince most judges to enter a sentence that is less harsh than the PSI recommends. It is not clear WHY the PSI recommends jail time given what you describe, but if there is a reason the judge might find that persuasive.
Your best bet is to work with your attorney to convince the judge that jail is not appropriate or necessary.See question
I have been driving the same route to an from work for 9 years, and on the way home from work at a flashing light cross walk, i slowed, looked both ways, and rolled through the intersection, and a bicylclist came out of nowhere, and struck them at...
The primary thing you need to do is to report this to your insurance carrier.
As for the ticket, you could speak with an attorney about challenging the ticket at trial, but it will be very difficult. The standard for this charge is not very high. Still, the bicyclist may not appear for trial or the fact finder might be convinced that you were not careless.See question
After 30 years I find out I'm a victim of bagimay what can I do to press charges against the bigamy
You can file a police report, but this isn't something that the police are very interested in spending time on. A criminal prosecution for bigamy is highly unlikely.
Your primary recourse is to file for a decree of invalidity of marriage.See question
Accused of taking medications from a home-care client. Employer filed a charge with the state Board and now I cannot work.
If you could prove that the allegations were malicious and untrue then you would have a claim of defamation against the client. It is not a personal injury case. However, your best bet may be to work with an employment attorney to defend your license before the board.See question
So yesterday I was fired by the assistant manager because I did not make enough sales. I was told by her that I should not attempt to try to make sales that day because the manager wouldn't want me to. I found out that wasn't supposed to happen an...
No, but you might have an argument you could take up with whomever told you that you were not supposed to be fired. If that person is the manager's supervisor, perhaps they will rehire you.See question
