TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state (in WV, on inactive status as of 9/13), be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, does not confer detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices which comes from day-to-day work. It is always best, however, to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
