Legal Advice Please!?
I Traded In A Car About 4 Years Ago For A New Car. The Dealer Was A Family Friend. They Don'T Have Copies Of The Title Or Anything That I May Have Signed It Over. I Got A Notice In The Mail Saying That This Car Is Still Registered To Me And Its Still In My Name.It Was Impounded By The Police And Its Sitting In An Impound Lot. I Don'T Have The Title For It Or Any Paperwork On The Car And The Police Department Is Saying Its Still Mine. What Do I Do? Do I Have The Write To Still Go Get The Car? The Car Was Supposed To Be Sold At An Auction So I'M Not Sure If The Title Is Still In My Name Or Not?
With the limited information provided in your question, my legal advice is based solely on the facts that you have provided. Also, laws vary state to state and without this information, it makes it difficult as well to ensure my legal advice is 100% accurate.
First, if you traded this car in for a new car at a dealership regardless that it was a family friend, the dealership has to have some type of legal documentation that they took ownership of the vehicle. (the title or a bill of sale signed by both parties) Do you remember signing the title over or a bill of sale?
Second, if the police impounded the vehicle, I am assuming that some individual was driving the vehicle and for whatever reason (abandoned the vehicle, operating the vehicle while unregistered, not inspected and/or uninsured, driving without a valid drivers license) that is how the vehicle came to be impounded by the police. When you registered your new vehicle did you transfer your plates from the old vehicle to the new vehicle or did you leave your old plates on and get new ones? Another scenario could be that the individual driving the vehicle never did any of the above and attached plates that belonged to another vehicle and drove it around, in which case the police would have determined by the VIN # that you were/are still the legal owner of the vehicle.
My advice is to resolve this matter by getting the necessary documentation that proves you have not owned the vehicle for at least four years and bring it to the police. In order to get a car that had been impounded out, you must pay for the towing of the vehicle, all of the impound fees that have been incurred to date and any citations that may have been issued by the police. Since, you have mentioned the fact that this car is about to be or may have already been auctioned off and you obviously traded the vehicle for the one you currently have, why would you want to pay all of the money that is due to get the vehicle back? You should be more concerned with clearing your name of any ownership to the vehicle.
Please feel free to list any additional information under your question or email me if you prefer.
Several People Have Told Me To Apply For Legal Aid. What Exactly Is It?
What Do They Do? How Do You Apply For It? I Tried To Look It Up In The Phonebook But Did Not Find Anything. I Am Trying To Get Divorced Or Legally Seperated With Sole Custody Of My Daughter.
Legal aid I believe is a program sponsored by the government to provide low cost legal advice. They can tell you what you need to do and what forms you need to fill out and supply to the Court in the proceedings for your particular matter. The Court follows strict guidelines and deadlines to supply the proper documents in order for your case to continue and it can be very confusing to the average citizen that is not already familiar with the legal process. Call your local County Court or Superior Court (every state is different) and ask for information on how to apply. You can also look for a pre-paid legal service. These are usually paralegals (not attorneys) who can advise you and prepare legal documents for you at a fair cost.
I Cant Aford A Lawyer?
I Cant Afford A Lawyer, I Don'T Have A Job Now He Has Some Alzimers
While I have no idea what this question is about, states have free legal aid to those who need it.
If this is regarding a civil suit, some attorneys will work on contingency, meaning they get paid based off settlements in court. It's kinda like commission.

Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer For Immigrant Purposes(Canada)?
I Want To Immigrate To Canada, I Completely Know The Rules But Decided To Hire A Lawyer Because My First Language Is Not English Or French And I Don'T Want To Have Grammer Errors In My Application!!! Do U Recommend Hiring An Attorney? Do U Know A Good Attorney?
Any Comments Is Appreciated.
This is a link for some immigration lawyers in the Vancouver, BC, area. I couldn't tell you a good one from a bad one but the link gives some guidelines on how to pick a lawyer and also gives the names of some.
That said, I don't know if you would be wiser to pick a lawyer located in Canada or one who specializes in immigration to Canada but is situated in the country you are coming from.
First Time Offender Of Dui In Pa...Help!?
So This Past Weekend I Was Visiting Some Friends Out Of Town. We All Are 21 And Were Doing Some Drinking Throughout The Weekend. On Saturday I Stopped Drinking At 10Pm. Around 2 O'Clock My Ex Calls Me Saying She Was In Trouble And She Needed My Help. I Thought 4 Hrs Since My Last Beer I'M Fine.
So On The Way To Pick Her Up I Missed A Turn And Turned Into A Parking Lot There Were 4 Cops Standing There Nd Jumped In Front Of My Car And Told Me To Stop. Me And My Buddy Were In The Car. I Cooperated To The Fullest, While Being Tested For Dui, Breathalyzer (Which The Officer Didn'T Tell Me What I Blew) Follow Test, Line Test, And Stand On One Foot Test. Apparently I Failed When I Know I Did Everything Correctly. I Was Taken To Station And Got A Blood Test. I Got No Paperwork No Business Card, Nothing. All They Said Was They Would Call Me In 4 Weeks When Results Were In...What Should I Do? I Haven'T Had Anything Serious On My Record Besides A Speeding Ticket In 2 Years (Underage 4 Years Ago, And Disorderly Conduct 2 Years Ago) Freaking Out Please Someone Give Me Advise And Info On How To Go About This!!!
First time DUI is serious,.. but going to jail/being incarcerated is a VERY unlikely outcome. Typically the worst case scenario involves losing your license for a period of time - fines, sometimes mandatory alcohol education courses and this being on your record. (As DUI's are cumulative and each subsequent one results in stiffer punitive and monetary penalties) -- This is important as in many states the 3rd (and sometimes extended to 4th) DUI results in a Felony -- which is quite serious.
Though this is your FIRST, so try not to worry too much. The best thing you can do here is learn never to drive after drinking unless you are ABSOLUTELY positive enough time has passed to be under the legal limit. (Which is impossible to know unless you let 10-12 hours pass in most cases -- or you have a very accurate personal BAC monitor ).
Other than this -- start researching attorney's (lawyers) that handle DUI cases in your area. While you won't need one to stay out of jail on your first offense.. if you/ or your family can afford one it will give you your best chances at mitigating the charge against you. Sometimes you can get it plead down, or dismissed (best case). In other examples there are deferred entry of judgement (pre-trial diversionary programs) for cases like yours where you go through court ordered measures (classes, drug testing, and such) for a period of 6months or so (they all vary) and if you successfully complete the program you DUI charge is dismissed (despite otherwise having been guilty of the charge if you went before the judge/jury).
So try not to worry -- learn a lesson about driving,.. and start looking into attorney's (if you can afford it). Most will offer free consultation based on your case -- the first attorney you contact isn't always the one you should go with, plus the fee's they charge will vary as well. If you do end up going with an attorney don't just pick them based on the 'cheapest' --
You'll be fine,..
