Can I Join Any Military Branch With A Small Criminal Record Consisting Of 2 Misdemenors, And 2 Felonies?
I Have A Small Criminal Record, I Have Been Convicted Of 2 Misdemenors, And Charged With 2 Felonies. I Wasn'T Convicted Of The Felonies, I Got A 5 Yr Probabion On One Of The Charges And Havn'T Been Indicted For The Other One, But Both Of Them Will Be Exponged Once I Have Finished Probabion. Is It Possible For Me To Join Any Military Branch With This Background?
If both felonies were dropped, dismissed, or found not guilty and none of the misdemeanors were drug related then you would be able to join the Army. However, if you had to do probation for any of the felonies then that is considered "Other Adverse Disposition," meaning you are guilty in the eyes of the Army and are not qualified. If there was no OAD whatsoever, as in no probation, no fines, no community service, etc. then you would be able to join after getting a suitability review for the felonies and you would need a waiver since you have more than one misdemeanor conviction (two or more require a waiver and six or more permanently disqualify you). The best thing to do is to talk to a recruiter and have them run your record.
We processed people who were charged with multiple felonies before but the only reason they was able to join was because all of them were dismissed. All a suitability review is you writing a written statement stating why you was charged in the first place. Then the recruiter takes your written statement, along with copies of the final disposition of the felony (which MUST say dropped or dismissed without any OAD, or not guilty), and sending it to the proper commander to decide if you can enlist. The purpose of it is to see WHY your charge was dismissed. For example, there are people out there with dismissed domestic violence and rape charges. In some cases, the only reason it was dismissed was because the victim refused to testify and there was no other proof available to convict the suspect. In cases like that, their suitability review would be denied. On the other hand, if it was dismissed because it was a crazy ex trying to get you in trouble and can prove it then your suitability review would be approved.
Have You Ever Served On Jury Duty And Was A Good Experience Or Waste Of Time?
I served on a Jury Duty. I was chosen to be one of the jurors for the trial. It is very time consuming, but once in a lifetime experience The fun part was how some folks tried to get out of it. One man pretended to fall asleep in a courtroom and started snoring loudly. Another pretended not to speak English. I am proud of doing something where my decision matters, unlike voting where few politicians seem to care what I think.
Whats The First Step In Taking Fathers Rights?
I Am A 27 Year Old Single Mom Who Has Two Kids With My Soon To Be Ex Husband. He Is An Alcoholic, And A Drug Addict And When I Set The Standard For What I Expected, He Bailed. He Has Never Been There For His Kids. Even When We Were Under The Same Roof He Was Worthless. Because I Met Someone Whom I Am Very Much Committed To And Now Living With, He Ran Back To A Girl He Has Ignored For 6 Years And Has A 7 Year Old With, Whom He Has Also Avoided Like The Plague. I Want His Rights. I Want To Know That They Are Safe From Him And What He Is Currently Doing To His 7 Year Old Daughter. I Want To Know That If He Ever Shows Up On My Doorstep, I Can Say &Quot;You Have No Business Here&Quot;. He Denies Paternity And Refuses To Get The Tests (They Are His Kids, He Is Honestly Trying To Avoid Responsibility) So I Need To Know What The First Step Is, And How This Whole Process Works. I Refuse To Allow An Alcoholic And A Drug Addict Be The Standard That Is Set For A Father Figure For My Children. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Thanks.
Taking the father's rights away via the judicial system hardly changes the fact that he IS the children's biological father. You made a bad choice when you chose to let him impregnate you, and you cannot 'change' that judicially. Maybe the 'standard' you set, should have been set BEFORE you ever had sex with him. Thanks (in part) to YOUR choices, an alcoholic and drug addict IS the father of your two kids. You may be able to keep him from seeing or having further responsibility for the kids, but he will ALWAYS be their biological father. And kids have a way of wanting to KNOW that info as they get older, and may end up actually resenting what you have done.
There are consequences for our actions, the good ones as well as the bad ones...
As far as taking his rights away, you have to prove to the judge that the father's influence over the children (if allowed) would be sufficiently harmful to the CHILDREN to DEPRIVE him of his rights. Depending on the judge, that may (or may not) be difficult. You have to build a legal case. It sounds like you have good grounds, although I have seen judges that will go either way- NOT based on law, but on the judges whims. That is another problem with "activist judges".
Are Civil Attorneys Free?
Well I Thought I Would Contact A Public Defender To Get Advice On A Case But Since I'M Not A Criminal They Wouldn'T Help Me :[ They Told Me To Contact A Civil Attorney
So Yeah Never Gotten In Trouble Before So I'M Not Sure
Are They Free?
I'M A College Student (Don'T Have A Car To Sell Or House) So I Can'T Afford Anything
Just Want Advice On Legal Stuff
Civil attorneys are not free. There are civil plaintiff attys, one who sues someone else, and there are civil defense attys, one who defends a person being sued. There are personal injury attys, medical malpractice attys, contract attys, family law, property and probate, all kinds of attys for all kinds of things.
That being said, there are free legal advice places in all cities. They all have different names, but you can do a google search for "pro bono attorneys," and you might get some lists of attys who do some pro bono work. There is also a website -- the name escapes me -- but it's something like "legal ask dot com," something like that. You can ask a legal question, and several attys will jump on and answer your questions as carefully as they can. There may be a small fee, or a donation, but it won't be hundreds or thousands of dollars.
There are also lots of attys who work for large firms who donate their time to so many hours of pro bono (free) legal work. I wish I could remember the term used for free legal counsel for the indigent in civil cases, I just can't. Mind's blank.
Without better info, I don't know where to send you, or what kind of lawyer you're looking for.
Hope this helps.
Seek Legal Advice--≫ Car Towed From The Appartment Parking Lot?
My Car Was Towed Yesterday From My Appartment Parking Lot As The Sticker On The Number Plates Were Expired(Registeration Was Expired).
I Know I Can Get The Parking Ticket On Expired Registration, But Ticket Wont Be That Much That I Had To Pay To The Towing Company. My Question Is : Is It Legal To Tow The Car For Such Reason? I Was Being Told My The Towing Company That They Have A Contract With Our Apartment Company To Tow Any Vehicle That Has Expired Tags.
The Fact Is That I Had Already Renewed My Registration Online And I Had Got A Receipt That Makes My Current Registration Valid For 15 Days Untill I Get My New Registration Stickers Via Mail. But The Towing Company Said That They Are Not Dmv And Doesn'T Recognize Any Document Like This. Had I Been Ticketed I Could Always Contest Based On The Receipt I Got.
One More Thing , I Checked My Aprtment Welcome Guide And It Is Nowhere Mentioned That Cars With Expired Tags Are Subject To Tow.
very legal... any unregistered vehicle is not permitted on the roads, parking lots, parked near the side walk, etc.
sorry, but your car being towed was legal and at your expense.
What Is The Diffrence Between A Parralegal And A Legal Assistance?
The terms "legal assistant" and "paralegal" are used interchangeably. American Bar Association defines the profession as follows:
A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.
Neither of these terms should be confused with a "legal secretary".
