35 Questions Answered

Q. I want to look up and see if someone filed for Bankrupcy in Wisconsin and what dates if they have filed
A: You would need to create and account with and log onto the Federal Bankruptcy Court (for the Eastern or Western District of Wisconsin) web page and search the PACER database records. There will be a modest expense for your searches. Alternatively you can hire an attorney's office with some experience with the system to do the search for you. I would expect to pay ~$50 for a simple search like what you describe.
Q. My wife passed away and our house mortgage was in her name and I also signed but now bank of america is foreclosing and
A: I highly doubt any judge would dismiss the case on the technicality you describe. Besides, one of the documents you probably signed when you took out the mortgage will obligate you to assist with correcting small scriveners' errors like the one you describe. Did the bank take a deficiency judgment against you or did they opt for the shorter redemption period? Either way the bank is going to get the property but one way you won't end up owing them money.
Q. Can the police arrest you if you fail a drug test?
A: If abstinence is a part of supervision (i.e. bond, probation, parole, extended supervision, or house arrest), then having consumed drugs will be seen as a violation of the conditions and you will usually be arrested. If you don't have any form of supervision, testing positive for drugs alone will not usually be sufficient to arrest you.
