I live in la county. 3 years ago my son who was 18 at that

I live in la county. 3 years ago my son who was 18 at that time brought home 2 pitbull puppies. He vowed to take care of all their needs. Well 2 years later the owner of the condo I lived in passed away .so my son moved somewhere on his own but did not take his dogs. So since I loved the dogs I did not have the heart to just get rid of them and i continued to care for them. One day I was visited by animal control wanting documentation reqiired for these dogs. I was not given their shot records from my son so i did not have that to show. So i was given a citation and a stiff fine. I have had no cooperation from my son at all. So i call petsmart hoping to get copies of the shots and was told my name is ***** ***** the account and my son would need to add my name. He and i are not on good terms these days so he did something unbelievable. He closed the wellness plan account so now i have to get all the shots all over again. I have a ticket for 600 dollars to pay by today and I dont have the money nor do i have the money for all the shots.I have 2 choices for court and or the fine now1: pay and close the case or schedule a court appearance for an arraignment only ( no trials) it states. Im going to have to go to court. But i was curious as to what will happen when I go to court. Arraignment? ..no trials? What does that mean?Is it possible for me to ask the judge to cite my son instead of me for first abandoning these animals and second for not making sure to have their shots and records up to date along with never getting them licensed as he should have done already? Or will this all fall on me even tho the were not my dogs to begin with and are with me due to my sons negligence and irresponsibility?

I have recently started working as a flight attendant for

I have recently started working as a flight attendant for JetBlue. I live in california and based in NY. I commute back and forth and have 12 days off a month in which I come back home to see my 10 year old daughter. My ex husband and I have a mutual friend who watches her while I'm gone for childcare. My ex is aware of where our daughter stays and has gotten CPS involved stated that I have abandoned our daughter. I wasn't aware until a week left of our one month long training that I wouldn't be based in california but will be able to transfer in Aug. He's been causing a lot of stress for me to be able to focus on my job that's helping to support our daughter. Due to the stress I'm ready to leave my position and if that happens can i ask the judge for more support and 100% custody? He's put stress on our friends who care for our daughter while I'm gone by showing up with cops on his non visitation days demanding they give our 10 year old daughter to him. he only has visitation on every sunday from 10-2 and the cops read the custody orders and told our friends that our daughter can stay and doesn't have to leave with her dad. I've had to take the police to his house 5 different times because he refuses to give our daughter back after his custody time ends. This is and ongoing matter for the last two months with my ex husband. We've been going thru this divorce for 3.5 years. what are my rights? with my job and leaving it and more support since he's put so much stress on me. He's called the police and told them he didn't know where our daughter was and he knew exactly where she was. He's harassed me over phone calls cussing at me. My daughter doesn't want to live with him. She wants to be with me.

Several months ago, I gave $1,200 and a considerable amount

Several months ago, I gave $1,200 and a considerable amount of furniture to a man to do upholstery work. I called him repeatedly this week but there was no answer. I went out to his house/shop yesterday and the place looked totally abandoned. Weeds everywhere, truck parked behind a locked fence. I just want to get my furniture back. How can I do this if I can't make contact with him?? JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck? Customer: This all took place in Harris County. His house/shop is located at *************.I checked with Harris County taxing authority and discovered that he hasn't paid his AV taxes since 2002. He's in some sort of deferred tax position. The truck is actually a van. It's quite old. Does any of this help you?? JA: Has anything been filed or reported? Customer: No. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: Well, I've known this man for years. He and his father (now deceased) built and recovered furniture for me in the past, quite successfully. When I last saw him, he looked like he was in bad physical shape. Frankly, I don't even know if he is still alive. The man's name is Alfred *****************
