Divorce Questions. by Charles Turveyford - Sun, 29 Nov 2015 20:19:20 EST ID:Mqal8yYZ No.44864 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So about 2 months ago, a close friend of me and my future ex-wife passed away. I suppose in some weird impulsive response to grief me and her decided to get a courthouse wedding, just for the fuck of it.

Really awful idea, I know, but I guess we were trying to cope or something.

Anyways, We got married on the 15th of October. Things were going alright, we've been friends for several years now and she had already lived with me so it was a perfect adjustment. We had a small ceremony for kicks, got some cute rings and dresses and left it at that.

Anyways, about two weeks ago, she just randomly got a stick up her ass. We went from having a very pleasant evening the night before, and the next she was suddenly giving me the cold shoulder. Figured midterms were stressing her out or whatever, but it kept happening.

Out of the blue, I came home and most of her furniture and stuff was gone. Just vanished in the course of a couple hours. She's still refusing to talk to me. A couple days ago, she said she wants to hurry up and get a divorce. I suggested trying for an annulment but she's absolutely set on divorce for some reason. Saying it will be easier.

Today, a couple of guys let themselves into my place without warning with her key, and said they came for the rest of her things. They were incredibly short, and when I asked them if they had any idea why she was mad they refused to tell me. I got the impression they felt I knew what I did but was playing stupid.

Now I'm worried and scared about what she's told people, and the idea of getting divorced scares me now since as much as I want to be separated properly I'm afraid she might have some plan in motion to fuck me over somehow.

The major question being, do I need a Lawyer? Is there any way she can screw me over at this point. We both have a separate income, we've never taken in any debt mutually, obviously don't have kids or anything on the way. Ideally, I figure it'll be a "My stuff is mine, yours is yours." but I'm not sure what legal footwork can be done if I don't cover my bases.

Additionally, the guys said they'd be back tomorrow. I told them I wouldn't be available but they said they're coming back anyways.

Do I have any way to prepare, or recourse should she decide to take things that aren't hers? I have some reasonably decent things that would be absolutely devastating to replace if she took them.

I've been in a position where I needed legal counsel. What's the best way to find one? Just googling, or should I flip through a telephone book like the good ol' days.

How much will it cost for legal counsel? Or would a lawyer be involved from start to end?

How long does it take for social security to go through a name change regearding benfits? by Molly Fobblenitch - Tue, 24 Nov 2015 10:20:30 EST ID:3xXBEjni No.44854 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hello I want to change my name but also receive SSI for disability. (MS)
I've had a lot of problems with Social Security and my pension in the past.

A few months ago they falsely accused me of having 5 grand in stocks, which took 3 months to appeal (w/o receiving income)

And it took me two months for them to adjust my income level after a hiccup in their system where they took 1/3 out of regular check.

I'd really like to change my name but they aren't swift or thorough about anything and I do not want them fucking me over like they have in the past.

How long do you think it would take to process the name change and if their is a lapse in reeving income how long would it likely be?

There are plenty of free legal advice sites out there. Some though you ask a question and then suddenly ask for money for an answer. Look around.
Many are decent attorneys that help, to help, and in turn they learn more in

Deploying a drug dog is considered a search, if that's what you're asking. The only major caveat for searches on campus are dorm rooms. If you live in one, it's probably not like your private residence.

>> In most cases, the police can only search you only if you have been placed under arrest or if you have consented to the search. However, there are exceptions. These include:

>If the police find you in a place where they are searching for drugs, and they have reason to believe that you have drugs.
>The police find you in a vehicle where people are transporting or drinking alcohol illegally, and they believe that you have alcohol.
>The police believe that you have an illegal weapon or one that was used to commit a crime, and suspect that it might be removed or destroyed in the time it would take to get a search warrant.

>>If the police search you for any of these reasons, you must allow the search. If you believe that you have been wrongly searched, tell the police that you object to the search, and speak to a lawyer afterwards about your concerns.
>>If the police search you in relation to one offence, and find evidence that you may have committed another offence, you can be charged in relation to the second offence.
>>For example, if they search you on suspicion of having drugs, but find an illegal weapon, you can be charged with possession of the illegal weapon.

I will try to keep this as short as possible people.

I know someone, a woman, who is Lebanese and has 2 children. She is married but they are basically separated. The guy he is I think technically a sociopath and he uses his own kids as pawns in his game. He doe snot love them and he does not live with her or his 2 kids anymore, but does see them sometimes. Example he took them on a 40km journey on a motorbike with no helmets and they are like 10 and 12 yo, also it was cold and now they are ill.

Anyway she wants to the country because Lebanese law is such that the man has all of the power when it comes to custody of kids through a divorce and many other things. She wants to flee. She does not know how and I a wondering what would be the best place, way and how? The main thing here is for the kids sake, this guy is terrible and ruining many lives

Any further details that are needed I will provide them
Thanks in advance

If someone was convicted of 5 felonies for an incident, and theyve been sentenced to probation and about 3 years has passed, is there anyway to take the case back to trial or something, and persue attempted manslaughter? Im in NYS, I'd appreciate anyone's feedback. It was 3 years ago, like I said and the court preceedings are all over. I know there's no double-jeopardy in this country but is there some re-assessment of the case that can take place? The police have a machete used in the incident in their possession and a lot of other evidence documented. I have no idea how this guy didn't go to prison, I'm really fucking baffled but I think he ought to.

Double jeopardy wouldn't apply to a manslaughter charge if it concerned actions or elements not covered by the previous convictions. If that's too theoretical for you, if there the convictions included things like felony assault and there's no new evidence, the prosecution is done.

Whenever someone is a asked a question in court that would reveal his guiltiness, he may answer: "I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me".
Isnt that enought to convict him? Granted, he may not lie in court. If he said "no" and later found out it was a lie, he gets punished.
if in his inability to lie in court, the only substitute for "yes" in say "did you murder Mr. X?" is "I refuse to answer because it may incriminate me", isnt that enough to indirectly know he's already guilty?
am I insane to believe this? What am I missing?

What you're also missing is that this is never an issue. No one ever asks a defendant in a criminal trial if he's pleading the fifth. A defendant either testifies (Like a fucking idiot) or shuts the fuck up (like a smart persons).

Once the idiot defendant takes the stand he doesn't get to say I plead the fifth. If you answer any question (such as the perfunctory what is your name that starts off every direct) you're answering every question either side has for you.

>"did you murder Mr. X?

Opinion: I don't believe that would be allowed in a court of law. The state, the people, need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that circumstances, evidence, witnesses shows defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable
doubt. Not all law requires this.

The idea of 'might incriminate ones-self' goes along with the right to not be compelled to self-incrimination.
So not answering a question(s) in court or statements to police puts the burden of proof to police and
subsequently prosecution to provide enough evidence to pursue, win a conviction in a case.
This relies on ((burden of proof,) on the part of the prosecution.

In short not testifying or refusing to make statements and answer questions is a right in due process of law.
Which refusing to do so does or should not show guilt. The burden it on the state to prove it's case, not the
defendant.

Note the movie My Cousin Vinny. The sheriff says "was this before or after you shot the clerk/."

You can't ask that question in a criminal trial. Not because it's barred by the 5th amendment, but rather because it's barred by the rules of evidence as an ultimate issue question.

Guys fuck I got arrested and the judge released me on bail and said I have court on the tenth today at 730.

The other day I got a letter from the attorney office from the lawyer they appointed to me. It says the next scheduled court date is the 17th at 730

Fuck they both say 730 so its weird. The letter says not to call the court but call the lawyer office. I don't have time on my phone so the only way I can call is at 5 when my mom is done work.

Should I go tonight or call or what? I was arrested 4 days ago and got the letter 2 days ago. I haven't even had a chance to call the lawyer yet. Is there two court dates I have or is someone wrong or did it get rescheduled?

You're either lying or you've never committed a serious offense. In the Netherlands you'd be guilty by "verstek" (i.e absense), i'm sure a similiar ruling is in working in [whatever3rdholeshitholeyou'refrom]. Absense would certainly not imply that your punishment would be increased nor that your case will be given less attention, it would imply that you're not going to get any less punishment (In the situation of OP at least).

Also OP, you're full of shit and fuck you. You had 4 days to call a lawyer. 4 FUCKING DAYS.

tl;dr i was walking out of a grocery store and i was struck by a train of carts being pushed by a cart handler.

i just had a sitdown face to face with the grocery stores adjuster. it was kind of weird. he made some claims that " i said" that i NEVER said and also said he reviewed the footage of the incident and "it looks like i didnt get hit, but he really couldnt tell"

i asked if i could see the footage and he told me that even with a lawyer i would never see that footage. (a cursory search of the internet tells me this is a lie)

ive just been dealing with them by myself. i have fibromyalgia so i pretty much live in a world of pain but getting struck (at a casual pace) by shopping carts sprained my back muscles and as a graphic designer i had to submit a project late because i couldnt work at a computer for long periods of time for a week or so after the accident, my client understood but professionally i feel pretty shitty about it. i missed out on other projects from my regular employer during that week because i was laid out.

should i lawyer up? he straight up asked me if i was lying about being hit by the carts and i told him 100% those carts touched me, i didnt jump out of the way, any movement of me around the carts was me being pushed by them

halp i dont want my medical bills to go unpaid. i know they will offer me a pittance but it feels like they are trying to call me out on faking

get a lawyer, ten to 1 that footage shows exactly what you need to get your bills paid. many lawyers offer free consolations explain you especially whant to see the footage and that it does exist.
the big thing with medical settlements is you want them open ended. if in 3 years you have problems that are related to this you dont want to have reached a settlement that closed out getting any more money that you deserve.

2 years ago? I applied for ssi for some physical and mental stress I was going through l, but never completed it. and there's no paperwork or doctors reviews, and I missed appointments, got denied. and they never really got anything out of it besides helping me with general assistance.

TLR friend got busted, need advice.

What's up /stem/?
I don't need your advice as much as my friend does. Yesterday at !:00pm, my good friend was arrested at a road block. I drove through the same checkpoint 30 minutes later on my way to meet him to leave for a concert. When I drove through I saw his car parked on the side of the road with no one inside, I knew exactly what had happened. He rolled up on the cops while smoking a blunt, but threw it out the window. They smelled the weed (of course), and searched the car. He was most concerned about wether or not he had his jar of weed with him, which probably had an ounce of pot in it. Much to his surprise, the cops pulled out a meth pipe he thought he got out. Also they found a small amount of weed, and an empty bag that had some residue in it. Luckily I was bringing my acid and he didn't have his vial on him, also they didn't find the roll he had

So they take him to jail and grill him. He says he had no idea that the chicken was in there, and it isn't his. The cops say they want him to find the person that it belonged to and tell them to admit it.
They charge him for simple possession of weed, and held off on the charges for the pipe and bag until he proves it wasn't his. Luckily its a very small town and his parents are very prominent and connected in the county. They are church goers, and own a very successful business owners. Also they are fairly wealthy so he can get a good lawyer. These are very good things but how much will it help him for such a feared drug. Also he has never had a prior drug charge, and only one drinking charge years ago. His court date is in late December and he will be graduating engineering school a few days before. I think this will also look very good. However the next county over, mine, just busted 60 people for dope last week, the result of a two year investigation. So they either got their bellies full, or have a hard dick about it.
My questions are:
Will they charge him for literally like 10mg of dust in a bag?
What kind of punishment would he receive for the pipe?
He is thinking of entering a rehab program on his own will, will thi…

I can't read the minds of the cops that are holding your friend, but generally speaking police/prosecuting attorneys tend to have one or two particular, 'big' charges that they want to get convictions on and they will shotgun other, lesser charges and then offer to drop those lesser charges if the suspect will plead guilty to the big one(s).

>>They charge him for simple possession of weed, and held off on the charges for the pipe and bag until he proves it wasn't his.

They're trying to play him. Even if he could prove it wasn't his (and how the fuck could he do that?) the police are under no obligation to share exculpatory evidence (evidence that proves innocence) in court. It's irrelevent anyway because the burden is on them to prove that it belongs to him. I don't know how damning it is that they found it in the car. Maybe someone else can speak to that.

I have no insight into your other questions. Hopefully, someone else will.

Not being obligated to provide exculpatory evidence includes not giving it to the DA. The DA can't disclose what the DA doesn't have.

No, what I was thinking of was this. I done goofed. It applies only to your own testimony, disqualifying it as hearsay. It doesn't apply to other exculpatory evidence, the disclosure of which is covered in the US by the Brady ruling.
