Ticketed for 29 in a 20, due to it being a school zone. However, Seattle Schools were closed for the day for a snow day, and no children was consequently present.
You need to contest the ticket. As previously answered, if you mitigate a ticket you agree you committed it and want a hearing to explain the circumstances. The penalty for school zone tickets may not be waived, reduced, or suspended. Most judges do not allow a deferral of a school zone ticket. The wording in the sign is important - when children present or lights flashing. If school was closed and no children present, you should be able to present evidence (take pictures of the sign and have something showing the school was closed) and have the ticket dismissed or hire an experienced attorney to represent you.See question

Some courts will continue the court date if you call the court clerk and give the reason for needing a continuance. Try that first. If you to fill out the motion, simply state that the reason you need a continuance - that you are unavailable on the day of the contested hearing is set for and days and times you are available. It would also be a good idea when you speak with the clerk to ask what other contested hearing dates and times are available on the court calendar so that if and when you file the motion to continue, you have known dates to request a continuance to.See question

You may be eligible to file a motion to have your juvenile record sealed. Sealed records are protected from public examination, but they don’t cease to exist and may be re-opened if you are convicted of an adult crime, or if you are charged with a felony.See question
I got a speeding ticket for driving 46 mph at a 30 mph zone. I should mark one of 3 options: I have enclosed a check, Mitigation Hearing, or Contested Hearing. I hope to get a deferral but there is no such an option on the ticket form.
As previously answered, you can call the court and ask about entering a deferred finding over the phone. Some courts allow defendants to submit a written statement which you could use to request a deferred finding, however it is usually better to appear in court to make sure your request is submitted. If the court does not allow a deferral without a hearing, as my colleagues answered, request a contested hearing and show up in court to request a deferral.See question
I am buying a used car from a private seller. Currently the car is still under loan. If I pay the loan directly for her, the title will mailed to her in 10 days and then she will transfer the title over. Is there any sort of private contract that ...
10 days is pretty fast for a bank to get a title sent out. I know they do 10 day pay off requests - meaning the payoff given is good for the next 10 days. That doesn't mean title will arrive that fast.
You need to have a written contract with the seller. Prepare a Bill of Sale with the details of the car: year, make, model, color, VIN, and include the date of sale, the price and signature lines for both. The seller will have to sign a Release of Interest in the car and odometer disclosure statement, both of which are contained on the title. However, there are separate forms available for Release of Interest and odometer disclosure. Dealerships have customers sign those forms all the time. If I recall correctly, those forms have to be notarized. I would suggest getting the contract notarized as well. Additionally, you should be able to direct the bank who holds the title to send it to you since you are making the payoff. Essentially your payment to the bank puts you in the position of the bank - you are replacing the bank who holds the title. That is what car dealerships do when a car with a loan gets traded in. The dealership makes the payoff and the title is sent to them, not the customer.
I'm sure there are some dealerships which for a small fee would help you out doing all the paperwork and make sure the title is sent to the correct place and then the car is properly titled in your name.See question
Do I have 15 days from the date of the ticket or the day I received it, since I received the ticket a few days afterwards.
When infractions are mailed, the court includes a RESPONSE DUE BY date which is usually in large type. As my colleagues stated, you have 18 days from the date of the mailing to respond.See question

In Washington state, if someone else commits a felony, by defrauding someone out of $10,000, and I am aware of the crime, am I legally obligated to report the felony to the police? Does it make a difference if I am one of the victims of that fraud?
I also agree with Mr. Blair and Mr. Lawrence. It does not make a difference if you are one of the victims. But then the question is - why wouldn't you file a police report or sue the person for return of the money?See question
Any other legal Entities to register a patent. What is the lowest cost Entity?

You should review your listing agreement and see what the paragraph regarding commission states. Depending of which listing form (date) was used, the language might vary some. Usually it states: "Further, if Seller shall, within six months after the expiration of the Listing Term, sell the property to any person to whose attention it was brought, through the signs, advertising or other action of Firm, or on information secured directly or indirectly from or through Firm, during the Listing Term, Seller will pay Firm the above commission."
If as you state, you found the buyer completely on your own, with no help in advertisement or marketing from your realtor, you might not be obligated to pay the commission. Hire a local attorney to review the listing agreement.See question
