Is This A Felony Dui Or Misdemeanor Dui?
Like If Someone In California Under The Drinking Age But An Adult Drank Alcohol And Then Sped In Excess Of 80 Mph And Crashed Into Some Houses And Nobody Gets Seriously Hurt. First Off All What Is Considered &Quot;Drunk&Quot; For A Person Under The Drinking Age Of 21? Second, I Read That A Dui Felony Needs Aggravating Factors Such As Speeding. Would This Qualify? I Would Especially Like Answers From Informed Lawyers.
While there are laws making it unlawful for a person under 21 to drive with as little as .01% alcohol, that is NOT DUI. DUI is driving with .08% or more, or driving under the influence (meaning that the alcohol affects your ability to drive safely). DUI can be a felony with three priors within 10 years, or if the driver violates any additional law or neglects any duty, and any person suffers any bodily injury (not just serious). (Veh C 12153.) It is not felony DUI, for example, if the "drunk" driver gets hit by another car if the driver did not violate the law or neglect a duty. Usually, however, it is the drunk who has caused the accident.
ADD: The statement that a DUI with "an accident" can be charged as a felony is incorrect. As I state, the drunk driver must have also violated a law or neglected a duty AND there must be an injury.

Does Anyone Know Of A Free Attorney I Can Just Talk With In East Tx To Get Some Advice? Is There Legal Aid For Woman That Need Help?
As an FYI, when I used to work on divorce cases I ALWAYS recommended that my client be the one to file for divorce. (And I heard all of the standard excuses: Religion and "I don't want my kids to blame me" being the most popular.) And every client who ignored my advice and let the spouse file eventually admitted that they should have listened to me. If a divorce is inevitable, for goodness sake, get into the darn driver's seat and take control of your life and the process. It is ALWAYS better to be on the offensive rather than the defensive.
It is very difficult to find pro bono family law attorneys. Family law cases tend to be bottomless pits that drag out for extended periods . . . and clients tend not to listen to you. (So the thought process is if you have a client who isn't going to take your advice, you should be getting paid for it.) You can try looking in the phone book for a County Legal Services. You also might check with domestic abuse programs to see if they have any legal programs. Finally, go to your courthouse to pick up the divorce paperwork - you might also be able to find out if there is a legal service that could help you with your paperwork.

What Age Is It Legal To Have Sex In The State Of Texas
If I'M 17 Is It Okay To Have Sex With A 19 Year Old Or Against The Law?
Only lawyers can legally give legal advice. For what it's worth, you have to be 18 or 19, whichever is the legal age "considered adult age" in Texas. I don't recall which it is. Don't do it just to please the guy and don't do it if you are not prepared for the consequences. Birth control is no where near 100% effective and the statistics are well below what they claim they are.
What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
I Am Trying To Decide If It'S Worth It To Retain A Lawyer.
The Injury Resulted From A Low Impact Rear-End Crash With A Dump Truck (Damage To Car Does Not Look Serious). I Saw A Dr. The Same Day And Was Diagnosed With A Neck Strain. I'M Looking At 3 Weeks Of Physical Therapy. At This Point I'M Not Sure How I Will Recover, But Let'S Assume That I'M Only Looking At 1 Week Of Lost Wages, Medical Expenses Are Covered By Worker'S Comp Because I Was On Company Time, And After The Physical Therapy I Have A Full Recovery.
Is The Case Worth Enough To Retain A Lawyer?
The Accident Happened In Metro Atlanta, Ga. Anyone Have Any Idea What The Insurance Company May Offer, If Anything, For Pain And Suffering?
Many states have a rule that you can pursue both Workers Comp. and a Civil Action. So, I would check with a lawyer for an opinion about the interplay between Workers Comp and a personal injury claim at the courthouse. Remember there are usually time limits on workers comp. Still, I would check out the issues. On the medical issue, you should consider an x-ray or MRI to rule out greater damage than a simple cervical strain. On the other hand, I would not make this accident the center of my life. PI lawyers charge no fee for an initial interview. There are thousands of lawyers who want to represent people with your case.
Can A Divorce Decree Be Changed Regarding Retirement Property?
We Divorced Ten Years Ago And Were Not Verbally Sure About The Division Of My Pera Retirement, So We Simply Wrote Down N/A. Does This Mean That I Get All Of My Retirement?
My job, before retirement, was RETIREMENT... and divorces with QDRO and EDRO's issued to split pensions.
First, ten years ago, if the pension was split, the court would order a Domestic Relations Order (Qualified DRO for private sector) and Eligible DRO for public sector. DRO's were new to pensions
My guess is that your ex agreed to give up the pension during divorce negotiations between the two parties and their attorneys. Maybe got a bigger cut of a savings account, or a car, or whatever... in exchange for leaving the pension as is. Whether there was a split or not, regardless of the N/A, there should be text in the divorce that speaks to Retirement Plans. It should say that you retain your pension, or that it is split and the specifics will be in the DRO issued soon.
THEN the attorney hires actuaries, subpeona's both plans and determines the rules for the split (if one party dies before you both actually hit retirement, etc etc).. and the actuary has to determine if the DRO costs the plan more than the plan would have normally paid out - if there were no DRO. Lots to consider...
My two cents, check the retirement section of the divorce itself... I'm really not sure what document you are looking at that you wrote N/A. The divorces we reviewed were legal documents of at least five pages, that the Judge could sign...
Finally, just because you never did a Domestic Relations Order doesn't mean you are OK. We've had divorces where the EX's attorney advised that a DRO would be issued, we never received it, and at retirement -- had to hold up the retirement paperwork until a DRO is received. Imagine that.. ten years later having to go back to court to complete a divorce order. Not a good thing...
