I was brought when I was 17 year old because of persecution, but I never wanted to say anything because I have not any proof given that they pandillas asked me to join them and I said no therefore I had to come.
A non-citizen can *enlist* in the military, but federal law prohibits non-citizens from becoming commissioned or warrant officers. For a non-citizen to enlist in the military, he or she must first be a legal immigrant, with a green card, permanently residing in the United States. You should also see the Citizenship for Military Personnel & Family Members website of US Citizenship and Immigration Services website. US military members may be eligible for citizenship, to include expedited and overseas processing, under special provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).See question
Department of Veterans Affairs has taken $189.30 out of my Social Security for the last 7 1/2 years. I owed them $30,000 and my balance is $14,333.20. I check my bank account today and they took all of my Social Security. I'm 70 years old and wit...
I am so sorry to hear this is happening. I agree with both of the other attorneys, and would add that many communities have pro bono or low cost resources to assist veterans in your situation. Unfortunately, the ones I know of are all in the Pacific Northwest, which is where my practice is located. I strongly recommend you do some research. I looked and found the following list of service providers. Take the following link and get rid of the word "dot" and all the spaces (Avvo won't let us post links) www dot loveourvets dot org/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/LOV-PRO_BONO-Legal_RESOURCES1 dot pdf Or, try googling "emergency legal help for homeless veterans florida" - that's where I got that link. I wish you the very best in this difficult time, and God bless.See question
Will I be able to re enlist into air national guard? I was active at time of discharge. Re code 2C. Would I have to do basic again?
It depends not only on the service branch you're entering, but which one you're coming from. For instance, say you were in the Active Air Force. A discharge code from the Army of RE-2C would be eligible w/o a waiver; whereas an RE-2C from AF would not be eligible for waiver consideration whatsoever. Instead of going to the recruiting office, I recommend you discuss this with a qualified military law attorney. I have heard anecdotally from clients that they waited months for an answer from this or that recruiter depending on complexity, whereas the right attorney can typically do the research and turn around an answer for you much more quickly. Plus, a qualified attorney can assist you in determining whether there was an error in your reenlistment code that could be corrected at the Board for the Correction of Military Records. Best of luck to you.See question
My relative who is senior citizen and physically not well - almost disabled(not officially) was treated very badly and interrogated and abused. I understand generally there is no recourse against rudeness of customer service people but what if...
For starters, a lawyer would need to know more to fully answer this question. Was the abuse was physical or abusive language? What kind of customer service was provided? How large is this company? Did your relative also engage in abusive behavior to the customer service representative? You mentioned that the person is a senior. Most state laws provide that any place of public accommodation that discriminates against a protected class (such as race, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability) can be found liable for discriminatory behavior. Furthermore, if a company is engaging in certain activities like collecting on a debt there may be prohibitions against unfair practices under laws like the Consumer Protection Act. There are laws prohibiting the collector from using abusive language against debtors.
You can also contact the company's management, or call their complaint line, or some companies have a twitter account to post your concern. Consider filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the Attorney General's office. Even if there is not a legal remedy, there's always "the court of public opinion." You can post a review of the company on the internet what happened and that it happened to a vulnerable, elderly person, to warn them away from this shocking behavior.
Lastly, I agree with the attorney who said nothing in the facts presented seems to suggest this is military law. Is your relative a veteran or was it on a military installation? If your relative was discriminated against on the basis of age/veteran status, as I said before, there might be a discrimination claim available to you. Best of luck to you and I hope this helps you and your relative.See question
I reported my car stolen over 10 years ago because my fiancé at the time took it when we broke up. The car was solely titled in my name and he took it and drove it to another state. He gave the vehicle back and the vehicle is now sold and way gone...
Mr. Silvia is correct. Ultimately, the warrant, like the criminal charge underlying it, is not yours to lift or "drop." Sometimes, the Court will demand the accused be accountable for failing to show up at court, even if the alleged victim no longer wishes to prosecute. Contact the local prosecutor's office and see if they'll bring a motion to dismiss.See question
Hoax charge class 4 felony . Only 13. No record.
You definitely need an attorney licensed to practice in Arizona, preferably with juvenile and felony experience. Typically, juveniles are assigned public defenders right away, but frequently, it is advantageous to obtain private counsel. Avvo can help connect you and/or the 13 year old accused with the right lawyer. Good luck!See question

The other attorneys ads correct-- don't post about this on the internet. It's also important that you refrain from *talking* about your case too, whether you're in jail or not. Do not talk to police, your friends, your cellie, or anyone, except your lawyer. Good luck!See question

I agree with what the other attorneys have said. I also wonder, if it's not some "dirt" that the witness has on you, how much pull this person being subjected to courts-martial is really going to have to "get you in trouble." If you have *any* concerns you might be incriminate yourself, or that the person has evidence of misconduct and would expose you, I would definitely consult with an attorney before speaking to any law enforcement (NCIS/CID what have you) or to Trial Counsel (the JAG attorneys) or the paralegals in their office.See question
Is it illegal for prison security and staff to be instructed to give a prisoner the cold shoulder and refuse to assist him? For example, not helping him when he needs help
I can't think of any law that violates, unless you are being denied medically necessary treatment or not being fed, or other civil rights violated. From what clients tell me, sending kites is better than verbally complaining. It must be so difficult to accept the nearly complete lack of control over one's circumstances that prison presents. Some clients have told me they find mindfulness meditation helps. You could also try talking to a chaplain or taking advantage of any programs your prison offers.See question

My colleagues are correct -- the only other exception I could think of is if it was somehow designated as a domestic violence offense (for instance, you were shooting in the air because you were angry at your spouse). Domestic violence convictions can also result in a loss of your firearm rights.See question
