Need Legal Advice? Lawyer If Possible?
Last Year My Husband Sold His Car. It Was Completely Paid Off. Anyways, He Sold It In February Using The Sales Slip At The Bottom Of The Registration. His Parents Were Witnesses. It Was Sold To A Coworker/Work Friend. He Made A Copy Of The Sale Paper, But I Didn'T Know That He Didn'T Go With The Guy To Dol Or Report The Sale. He Left It Up To The Guy Trusting His 'Friend'. Had I Known I Would Have Made My Husband Do The Sale Properly.
So. Months Later We Get A Towing Bill Saying The Car Had Been Impounded And Sold At Auction After Having Been Abandoned. Even Though It Was Abandoned By The Guy, He Had Apparently Not Put The Sale In, So There Is No Dol Record. Just Our Un-Stamped Copy. And The Total Bill Was 2,229 Dollars!
My Husband Forgot And It Went To Collections. I Called And They Said To Send A Letter Of Explanation With Our Proof...Since They 'Sale Report' Was Unstamped By The Dol, It Apparently Wasn'T Proof Enough.
I Want To Know What, If Any, Are Our Options? Didn'T Think Parents Were A Good Enough Witness. We Don'T Have Contact With The Guy Either As My Husband Was Laid Off A Month After Selling It.
Do We Have Enough Proof For A Small Case? About How Much Will It Cost To Go About That If We Do And Chances Of Winning?
If We Don'T Have Enough Proof, Would We Have A Case Against The Towing Company, Since They Didn'T Let Us Know About The Impound/Sale Of 'His' Car Until 2,000 Dollars After The Fact?
Thank You So Much. Please Help.
To Boot My Husband Is In The Military And Will Be Gone Awhile. Will Power Of Attorney Allow Me To Fight This?
You need to consult with an attorney - ASAP - BEFORE your husband leaves. For your own protection, get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get. >>>>>Since your husband is in the military, check out what legal services he can get - often there are attorneys that can/will help military personnel. BUT you need to do something ASAP.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(Don't sell motor vehicles to "friends" in the future. Friends and business do not mix well.)
Good luck to you.

What Will Happen To A Captain In The Marines After He Is Caught By The Military Police For Drunk Driving?
OK...all of this dishonorable discharge stuff is crazy.
The Captain who got caught by the MPs for drunk driving will have the change to defend himself just like if he got caught out in town. He can get a lawyer and fight the charges.
A Captain is an Officer. Similar to a celebrity, he will be given every break possible...sad but true. Depending on the severity, a comment will be made on his fitness report (the Captain will know what this is). This can result in not getting selected to Major which will result in him being forced out. Don't worry....he will get a fat severance check if he is forced out.
I have seen soo many of these swept under the carpet, it is crazy. I have a friend who as a 1stLt got a DUI. He now is a Maj select! Officers take care of eachother. It is a officer who will determine the Captains fate. Do the math.
I Would Like Check On A Law Firm To Find Out If They Are Reputable?
The Law Firm I'M Inquiring About Is Tmmlg The Patrick Drury Law Group, Apc The Mortgage Modification Law Group, Apc
They are lawyers, of course they are not reputable.
So far the BBB has not found a single reliable modification company.
If this is the first one you can verify that with the BBB as well as your states real estate board (have to have a license to deal with mortgages).
I am checking, but they do not look legit. Nothing in the BBB, but they are hiding their location, I will try to find that....
This is them:

The BBB does not even have them registered. It looks like money hungry sharks feeding on the desperate.
What'S The Difference Between A Legal Separation And Divorce?
Do They Both Entail Legal Filings? Why Would You Choose One Over Another?
Legal separation is an option that married couples can turn to when they have major problems in their relationships.It is the act of living separate lives without divorcing. It is an opportunity that gives each partner time to decide what they really want, to work though issues, and to try to patch up their problems. Legal separation can sometimes fix relationships, and it may also reinforce the need for divorce.
Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the ending of a marriage before the death of either spouse.A divorce must be certified by a court of law, as a legal action is needed to dissolve the prior legal act of marriage. The terms of the divorce are also determined by the court, though they may take into account prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements, or simply ratify terms that the spouses have agreed on privately. Often, however, the spouses disagree about the terms of the divorce, which can lead to stressful (and expensive) litigation. A less adversarial approach to divorce settlements has emerged in recent years, known as mediation, an attempt to negotiate mutually acceptable resolution to conflicts.
Legal separation does not automatically lead to divorce. The couple may reconcile, in which case they need do nothing in order to remain married. If they do not reconcile, and wish to divorce after the statutory time period, they must file for divorce explicitly.
Family Law Question When No Custody Arrangement Is In Place...?
I Am The Mother Of A 5 Year Old Girl. She Has Always Lived With Me (I Was Never Married To Her Father). Her Father Moved To Florida (I'M In Kansas) Roughly 2 Years Ago And Has Somewhat Little Contact With Her. Calls Once A Month, That Sort Of Thing. Whenever He Comes In Town, Which Has Averaged About 3 Times Per Year, I Always Let Him See Her As Much As He Wants (Which Usually Isn'T Even Half Of His Visits Home). We Recently Have Been Arguing Over Child Support Because I Told Him That I Was Filling Out A Motion To Modify Our Child Support Since It Has Never Been Reviewed And He Took A Promotion And Pay Increase When He Moved To Florida. His Girlfriend Recently Made A Comment To His Stepmother Who Is A Close Friend Of Mine That My Daughter Would Soon Be Living With Them In Florida. I'M A Nervous Wreck Because He'S In Town And I Have These Paranoid Thoughts That He'S Going To Try To Take Off With Her. I Don'T Want To Deny Him Visitation With Her, But At The Same Time, I Don'T Trust Him. His Name Is On Her Birth Certificate, But No Custody Arrangements Have Ever Been Established Through The Courts. Could He Take Off With Her Since There Is No Custody Arrangement Currently In Place? And If That Is A No-No, What Legal Ramifications Could He Face?
Absolutely not he could not just take off with her and go to florida you she has always lived with you... his wife is an idiot for thinking this is even remotely possible and making that comment... when you file the modification for child support also file a modification for custody and visitation she deserves to spend time with her dad without you worrying about him "taking her".
have him served by the sheriff and it would be easier if you did this immediately while he is in town... so he is easier to serve...go to family and probate court today or tomorrow.. it will cost you roughly $40 dollars to have him serve and free to file at probate court... you do not even nee a lawyer really.... No judge is going to take your daughter away from you.. you have friends family and proof that you have always been her main care provider and unless he can prove neglect or abuse you have absolutely nothing to fear....you also have daycare provider teacher neighbors etc that you can get letter from make sure phone numbers and addresses are on them incase they want to contact them.. who can state the type of mother you are and that your daughter is always well fed, clean, happy and cared for..a judge is not going to randomly say okay you had her long enough daddys turn so stop worrying..... what they will say however is that he deserves visitation with his daughter and arrangements should be made where she can visit him during vacations, every other holiday and part of the summers and this is something you are going to have to deal with for the next 13 years... and learn to live with... the one thing you can never ever do is make your child the spy by asking her what did dad say what did daddy and his wife do... etc
simple ask did you have fun with daddy let her answer you tell you her little kid stories and never talk crap about dad or wife where she can hear or at all if possible. The best thing you could do for your daughters sake is put aside old issues and be friends with your ex and tolerate his wife so you can be in the same room for holidays, school things, sports things and a wedding done the road years from now....as a divorced and remarried mother with 4 kids my oldest 3 are my ex husband I I am telling you this from experience and 13 years of tolerating my ex husband and a string of girlfriends as he never remarried... you will hit a point where you can actually call each other and talk calmly and be okay with it. My kids are now two girls 17 and 15 and two boys 14 and 11 good luck
