Q. How much time can you serve in mississippi for felony habitual offender ?
A: He needs to get with an attorney asap, as it sounds like some of his constitutional rights have been violated, and need to be presented to the Court. As to the habitual aspect, it depends on which habitual statute he is indicted under. If under 81, then it will be the max time of the underlying crime; however, if it is under 83, it will be life (both without the possibility of parole).
Q. If a person falls on a business property and result in death and have no insurance at time of accident what step can I
A: You need to get with an attorney ASAP, as this is a premises liability law suit and wrongful death action, and certain steps need to be followed to gather as much information on the front end as possible. Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. Most lawyers, including myself, offer free consultations to see what we can do to help out.
Q. I was convicted in 2006 for felony dui... what steps do I have to take to file for a certificate of rehabilitation in Ms
A: You need to get with an attorney to file the necessary petition with the relevant court, and have that attorney follow-up with the order certifying rehabilitation. Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here. Most lawyers, including myself, can provide a free consultation to guide you in the right direction and see how we can help out. The process itself, is rather straightforward, and fairly inexpensive.
Q. If I was incarcerated for more than 12 years, am I still obligated to pay backed up child support for all them years?
A: Unfortunately, you are still obligated to pay that child support, as each time a child support payment becomes due, it acts as a mini-judgment against the payor (you). That being said, depending on the age of the child, the child/custodial parent may run up against a statute of limitations issue that could keep them from collecting that child support.
Q. OK so my fiance caught three charges the other day and I'm not sure I understand the seriousness...charges are possess
A: These are pretty serious charges, that carry some hefty fines and jail time depending on the amounts involved. You should seriously consider contacting a criminal defense attorney to further discuss.
Q. Temporary guardianship in state if Mississippi...give aunt temporary custody of 12 year old for better schooling
A: I am not entirely sure what you are asking. Are you wanting to give someone a temporary guardianship or temporary custody?
Q. What’s the best way to leave property to someone that is not a direct heir?
A: He can always amend his deed to make it where he and your son share an interest in the property with rights of survivorship, or he can draft a will indicating that that particular property goes to your son upon his passing.
Q. Permanent partial loss- knee injury. What would be proportionate ?deaf worker
A: It would be formulaic, and depends on other factors. You may want to consider reaching out to an attorney for assistance.
Q. Can a state trooper pull two cars over for speeding at the same time? He also didn’t allow me to talk and see the radar.
A: Unfortunately, this is something that is fairly common, where the trooper casts a net to pull multiple cars over. What makes it worse is that there is no obligation on their part to actually show you the radar.
