I got served for a photo radar ticket, what can I do?

I got served for a photo radar ticket, what can I do?

 

Avvo Question:  I just got served today for a traffic speeding ticket 11mph over. There seems to be a lot of confusion within the state of Arizona on whether or not photo radar tickets are enforceable. In the past 5 years I have ignored 3 photo tickets and never been served. I recently have been pulled over for expired plates and the officer said nothing to me about any previous unpaid tickets. My Question is: Now that I have been served by a random woman at my house, can I still ignore this? The woman did not ask my name but simply said I am obligated to serve this to you. I took the paper without looking and closed the door. She did not have me sign anything.

Avvo Answer: Based on what you have told me, I feel that you have been served and the woman who served you will report that you were sufficiently served. Going forward, you are going to have to deal with these past tickets. Not dealing with them will probably end with a warrant being issued. There are a few ways that you can handle these tickets. You can simply pay the fine, you can go through traffic school, or you can go to the hearing for the tickets.

If you retain a Tucson defense attorney, the attorney can fight your tickets in court and challenge the photo radar tickets. Your fines for the infractions aren’t going to increase, thus challenging the tickets at a hearing isn’t going to add to your punishment. Chances are an experienced defense attorney in Tucson has had some luck fighting these and would be your best bet if you want to try to get around paying the tickets.

Lies at the grand jury

Lies at the grand jury

 

Avvo Question: I have been indicted. After reading police and witness reports, I find blatant inconsistencies. Is it possible for another grand jury, or do I have to live with the indictment? I feel that if the truth be told,meaning no lies, I wouldn’t have been indicted in the first place. My question, is there anything I can do, or can my lawyer do something about it?

Avvo Answer: Sorry about the indictment. It is never a good thing when an indictment is handed down, especially when a grand jury only hears a few selected facts from the prosecution. Unfortunately, inconsistencies in police reports and witness statements aren’t going to be enough to invalidate the indictment handed down by the grand jury. These inconsistencies become a bigger issue at trial when the differences in testimony and facts become an important factor as the jury uses these inconsistencies to judge the credibility of the witness.

The truth will set you free and hopefully allow you to be found not guilty at trial but I am afraid it isn’t going to reverse the indictment. I would recommend getting an attorney if you haven’t already. Your attorney may not get the indictment invalidated based on the facts you have stated but given the whole case to look at, your attorney may find a different angle to challenge your indictment.

Can you still bankrupt on a car that has been repoed and a lien was placed on my home I live in Virginia and my job downsized.

Can you still bankrupt on a car that has been repoed and a lien was placed on my home I live in Virginia and my job downsized.

 

Avvo Question: I bought this car fell behind in payment and was told through a letter that they would get a lien placed on my home but I havent seen any paperwork on that from my mortgage company.

Avvo Answer: You can still include the debt that you incurred from a repossession in a bankruptcy. If you file the bankruptcy prior to the lien being attached to the house, then the creditor will not be able to place a lien on the house assuming the debt is discharged in the bankruptcy.

If the lien is placed on the house prior to a bankruptcy speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney about how to remove the lien on the house during or after the bankruptcy process. Removing liens from civil judgments may result in additional fees not included in standard bankruptcy representation, but it still is possible to remove the lien.

Lawsuit had been file for non payment of a credit card debit. What can I do if unable to pay?

Lawsuit had been file for non payment of a credit card debit. What can I do if unable to pay?

 

Avvo Answer: There are a number of options. Even though, they filed a lawsuit against you, you may be able to set up a payment plan with them to pay down the debt. If this is not feasible for you, you may attempt to defend against the litigation. If you lose the civil suit or if you want to avoid a future garnishment, you should IMMEDIATELY contact an experienced bankruptcy to evaluate a possible bankruptcy.

An experienced bankruptcy attorney will be able to provide you information on how long the litigation process will take before the creditor will be able to garnish your wages, or bank accounts informed by both the civil procedure in Illinois for civil suits as well as from general experience.

Based upon your level of income, the kinds of assets you have, and the amount of debt that you have, an experienced bankruptcy attorney will be able to explain to you whether bankruptcy is the right path.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for you to speak with an attorney in your state to discuss your options.

Can a court ordered judgement be included in a bankruptcy, chapter 7 or 13?

Can a court ordered judgement be included in a bankruptcy, chapter 7 or 13?

 

Avvo Question: After my divorce I took my ex back to court because I learned he hid money while we were going through the divorce. The judge ruled in his favor and awared him $30,000 in attorneys fees. I do not have this money and now need to file bankruptcy.

Avvo Answer: This is definitely a case that you need to have a bankruptcy attorney review with you. An experienced bankruptcy attorney will basically go through your finances with you and evaluate your debt and financial situation to determine if filing for chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy may be beneficial to you. There are plenty of choices when looking for a bankruptcy attorney. Find one who you are comfortable working with and who can best address your issues. Many bankruptcy attorneys offer payment plans and most will give you a FREE initial consultation.

Though your situation may be a little more complex than most, it is definitely something that an experienced bankruptcy attorney can resolve for you. Visit with a few of them and get started on getting your life on track.

Sentence for a regular dui after aggravated dui

Sentence for a regular dui after aggravated dui

 

Avvo Question: My husband was convicted of a felony/aggravated dui about 4 years ago. Tonight he was arrested for another dui. Don’t believe it was extreme, but don’t know yet. Would he be sentenced under a second dui or a second aggravated dui?

Avvo Answer:  Sorry about your husband’s circumstance. If he had his license back and wasn’t driving under a suspended license then he should be looking at a regular DUI. Since it was 4 years ago since his last and if there aren’t other circumstances later revealed, he should be looking at a regular DUI. Regardless of the situation, it would probably be in his best interest to seek the help of an experienced DUI attorney. A DUI lawyer may be able to find a way to defend the pending DUI charges by reviewing the police report and the facts of the case. There are many choices available in Gilbert and throughout Arizona when seeking a good DUI defense lawyer. Find someone who you are comfortable and remember, the most expensive attorneys are not necessarily the best attorneys.

An Improved Budget To Avoid Personal Bankruptcy

An Improved Budget To Avoid
Personal Bankruptcy

Be Fiscally Conservative By
Spending Less on Your Clothing

 

There are many different ways to avoid having to file for bankruptcy. You may be told to sell some of your things to pay bills, negotiate with creditors, or to restructure your life. Perhaps something as easy as formulating a better budget is an easy way to avoid having to file for Mesa bankruptcy. One of the ways that you could consider to tighten your budget is to reduce the money that you spend on clothes. Sure, it may be easy to just not buy any new clothes, shoes, or garments. However, some jobs require that you have up to date, fashionable clothing. Other jobs require a uniform or clothes and shoes to perform the job. Sometimes the clothes do make the man (or woman). Sometimes clothing and shoes are a necessity.

Using some creative money strategies may allow you to reduce the amount of money that you have to spend in this aspect of your life. Reducing resources spent on clothes and shoes will allow monies to go towards satisfying the many debts that have been looming over your head. Remember, this budget and reduction has to be done by you as there is no way that those shoes you have had your eyes on at the mall are just going to (all of a sudden) become affordable. Even some of the sales rack items are still going to be more than you are willing to pay.

By looking for your clothes and shopping in different places, you won’t have to sacrifice your love for style even though you are sacrificing some of your clothing budget. Not overspending for clothes is the key to reducing your clothing budget. First of all, you should shop with cash only. Though this may seem old-fashioned, when you limit yourself to shopping with cash for clothing, you will limit the temptation to overspend on a credit card. It’s too easy to swipe that little plastic card in exchange for that new dress or shirt that you have been wanting. When you use only cash for your clothing purchases, if you don’t have the money then you can’t spend it. Cutting back on your credit card use is a bonus. Plus, its never fun to pay for items that you bought months ago.

Many times some of the best deals can be found outside of the mall. On-line shopping can be a great source of bargains. However, when you shop on-line the instant gratification of wearing your purchase is not fulfilled. There are many discount chains that offer you the same quality, name-brand clothing and shoes at a fraction of the cost.

4 best places that you can shop on a budget in Arizona

Marshalls – www.marshallsonline.com
Ross – www.rossstores.com
TJ Maxx – www.tjmaxx.com
Norstrom Rack – shop.nordstrom.com/c/nordstrom-rack

Great stores like those above are stores that you may find brand name clothing that was originally put in the department store but then was removed because of a surplus. The items found in these stores are great-quality clothing and shoes, but are sold at the discount stores for a fraction of the price. Hitting the sales racks at the discount stores way garner you even better deals. However, just because things are a fraction of their regular price, don’t be lured to by items you didn’t need just because they were on sale. Also, be aware of impulse buys! Impulse buys are never a good idea when you are on a budget. Only purchase the items that are essentials for your work or your wardrobe at the moment.

A few other local places that you may try to not only find gently used name brand clothes at a fraction of the cost but you could also sell some of your clothing on consignment. Reducing the amount of clothing that you have by selling some of the things you don’t wear anymore is another thing that will help you make a better budget and give you a better chance at avoiding bankruptcy.

There are many discount and used clothing stores throughout Phoenix metro area and around the valley. The popularity of such stores is growing as the economic downturn endures. Seek out the assistance of a Mesa AZ bankruptcy law firm for additional ideas and ways to better your budget and how you may avoid financial hardships and bankruptcy.

Could Social Media Damage Your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Could Social Media Damage Your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

 

BEWARE: Facebook Posts Can Affect Bankruptcy

 

Many people in Arizona and throughout the United States have grown to love social media, especially Facebook. Social Media outlets are a great way to stay in touch with family and friends. Despite that, posting your personal information on-line has also opened a window that allows others to peer into your personal life. I doubt many Bankruptcy Trustees or creditors are looking up debtors to see if they are telling the truth about their personal assets. However, it can take less than two minutes to find out a lot about a person and their assets by simply looking on-line. It is always a good idea to keep your profile “private”. This will keep people from finding out too much information about you but is far from safe. More importantly, if you are considering filing bankruptcy, be sure to disclose all of your assets and property to your bankruptcy attorney. If they know about your property then they can almost always protect it, or at least put you in the best situation to keep as much of it as possible.

With the ever growing popularity of social media sites, the practice of law has adapted and changed with the growth. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and other social media sites have changed the practice of law. Family Law and Divorce attorneys regularly review the opposing party’s Facebook profile for evidence of adultery or hidden assets. In some cases, prosecutors present online photos to juries as evidence of guilty behavior. It is a common practice of bill collectors to troll social media sites looking for assets and locating debtors. If you aren’t careful, these same tactics can affect the progress of your bankruptcy filing as well. Seek the assistance of your Arizona bankruptcy lawyer when going through the bankruptcy process in Arizona. A Mesa AZ bankruptcy law firm will warn you on what posts and pictures might adversely affect your bankruptcy.

 

Ways Social Media Could Affect Your Bankruptcy

1. Posting Pictures of Luxury Spending: Trips, Vacations, High Ticket Items
2. Boasting about Side Jobs or Getting a New Job
3. Showing Off Personal Property that is Not Listed

Many of the ever-growing followers of social media do not guard what they post online for the world to see. Rarely do individuals at the start of a bankruptcy, (or later in the midst of one), consider that the photos and postings of their new toys (cars, TV’s) their vacation or weekend getaways, or other purchases are at risk for being brought into evidence in the bankruptcy court by a bankruptcy trustee. Recent vacations and purchases may raise concern with the bankruptcy trustee as to how debtors are spending their financial resources. Remember, creditors, bill collectors, and the bankruptcy court appointed trustee of your bankruptcy estate may be trolling social media sites looking for evidence that your situation has changed, or that you were not entirely forthcoming in the listing of your income, assets, and job positions on your bankruptcy petition and paperwork.

Don’t be so naive to think that that limiting access to your profile to “friends only” will help. Facebook and other social media information can easily be subpoenaed – do not assume any right to privacy for your online materials. Is it really necessary to tell everyone about what is going on in your world? Do you really need to show off and seek out the approval of others? If so, be prepared to have your not-so-private personal information used against you.

Why You Need To Hire A Mesa Arizona Bankruptcy Law Firm: Part 2 of 3: Appropriately Recording

Why You Need To Hire A Mesa Arizona Bankruptcy Law Firm: Part 2 of 3: Appropriately Recording

Yet another factor of the bankruptcy filing process that you might not be aware of is the bankruptcy court filings and demands. We’ve heard countless horror stories with regards to people who suffer from submitting bankruptcy on their own and have made a bigger mess as the paperwork is wrong. The most sensible thing that you could do would be to talk to a Mesa AZ bankruptcy lawyer to guide you through the bankruptcy operation. Plenty of people which have tried to file their own bankruptcy often end up using a bankruptcy attorney to get their bankruptcy submitted both timely and correctly.

Among the first things which your bankruptcy law office determines is if you are presently eligible for personal bankruptcy. There are new prerequisites when recording bankruptcy like the requirement to complete credit counseling by an authorized consumer credit counseling class within the past 18 months.

Many people obtain the forms and mean to get it done, and the documents just sit on the table getting dusty. All it takes is encountering that one question that you have no idea how to answer, and your attempt for submitting bankruptcy yourself fades away. Don’t take a risk with the future of your finances. Talk to a Mesa AZ bankruptcy attorney who’ll set up a time to discuss your case with you.
