A: It is very much true; however, the landlord has to go through a specific process in order for the eviction to be legal.
Q. If u have 2 chargers of 97-3-7(3) (1)??? and u no u didnt do it.wat should i do in court? i no not guilty??? Right
A: You should 1) plead not guilty, and 2) talk with a lawyer so that they can get some additional facts about your case and see how they can help.
Q. Per Divorce Decree other parent was to pay half of private school tuition and hasn't for 8 years. Can I do anything?
A: Yes, you can initiate a contempt action against the other parent on behalf of the minor child.
Q. When two people own land in Mississippi and one passes away who is entitled to that persons share in the land?
A: It really depends on how the original deed was set up. On one hand, it could all go to the survivor; however, the deceased's share should pass to that person's heirs.
Q. My son was charged with burglary of a vehicle, he is 18 and never been in trouble. What punishment is he looking at?
A: He's looking at a little bit of jail time; however, that being said, he has been charged with a non-violent crime, which helps him for sentencing purposes. I would highly encourage you to reach out to an attorneys sooner rather than later, as there may be a way to ensure that your son 1) doesn't do any jail time, and 2) avoids having this go on his permanent record.
Q. My son has been charge with burglary of a vehicle. He is 18 and has never been in trouble before, what punishment?
A: He's looking at a little bit of jail time; however, that being said, he has been charged with a non-violent crime, which helps him for sentencing purposes. I would highly encourage you to reach out to an attorneys sooner rather than later, as there may be a way to ensure that your son 1) doesn't do any jail time, and 2) avoids having this go on his permanent record.
Q. The steps to file for divorce from different states
A: Since he lives in Georgia, unless he contests it, it should be relatively straightforward and inexpensive. I would encourage you to reach out to an attorney to further discuss. Most attorneys on here, myself included, provide free consultations to see how we can help out.
Q. Do I have rights to my children's records if I am a non custodial parent and custody papers state I am entitled to know?
A: It is sure. So long as it is allowed under the court order, and you have joint legal custody, you are entitled to all information concerning your children.
Q. Can I get papers at my court House for my daughter dad to sign his right over so my husband can adopt her?
A: Doubtfully. You will likely need to hire an attorney to file the necessary TPR paperwork and schedule a hearing so that the Court can ensure that the father is doing everything voluntarily and with full knowledge of what he is doing.
