I have a different signature on my driver's passport and

I have a different signature on my driver's passport and driver's license. When I went to get my driver's license, I mistakenly signed it using the short signature I have for bills, etc. Is there any way for me to legalize this signature to ensure that I can produce this document if at any moment I am questioned?

I recently discovered that my husband and our broker raided

I recently discovered that my husband and our broker raided my mutual funds (in my Name) and put them into my husband's IRA. He confessed this recently to me. So, now I have no access to my mutual funds from ***** ***** Co. and American Funds. In 1992 I opened these funds with about $35 thousand. As I understand it their crime is federal. Is it true that husband and broker embezzled funs they had no right to, and those funds should now be reimbursed to me, the injured party. The accident occurred in 1987, before I ever met my husband. This offense took place in the Napa Valley. The arbitration, in Tacoma, Washington.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I hope you can help me find help. I need to find an attorney. Do I need one in Washington and/or California? I have most of the papers. I have reported this to an attorney in northern California. I send her most of the documents which Husband, Erick Hauge has not lost in three job transfers.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The box above gives you information. The accident occurred in Washingon state in 1987. In 1989 I moved to Napa California and married Erick Ronald Hauge. The embezzlement happened in Napa. We now live in Lake Barrington, Illinois.

I got a careless driving ticket and am not sure how serious

I got a careless driving ticket and am not sure how serious it is or if it is worth fighting. I was driving on a back road and spun out making a shallow bend towards an intersection. I was going around 30 and the posted speed limit was 35. I started to break after seeing the upcoming stop sign warning and my back end gave out. Ended up sliding through the intersection and went off the road a little bit. I think my suspension was broken before the accident and caused the spin out because I wasn't driving anywhere close to fast enough to spin out normally. There were no witnesses. A lady way up the road saw me come to stop but did not see the spin. she decided to call the police, fire department, and ems services even though i was fine and never came down the road to see me. Basically, I am a victim of circumstance. So, my question is should i plead not guilty and fight tell the judge what i believe happened without any tangible proof or let them convict me with only an hypothesis based on where I ended up?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Btw I'm currently in school for a CDL B license and I know a conviction here will come back to haunt me.JA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: I emailed the officer two weeks ago about the details of the accident report but he never got back to me. I received my summons today.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so. Will this cost me anything?

Hai...I had small accident yesterday and it was just a couple of scratches and fender bender.The police was on the scene and since the accident was very minor they asked both of us if we want to file a case or do a drivers exchange.Since we preferred drivers exchange everything was ok.But when I had filed a claim in my insurance company...they took statements from both sides and they came to a conclusion that she was at fault.But then the other driver said she is going to lodge a police complaint...I called the police officer and his junior listened to everything and he assured me that since there was no complaint filed at the scene she can't do anything and since my insurance company found that she was at fault...I am safe and no need to worry...but I just want to make sure..if she can sue me or trouble me in any form in the future...

I was in a wreck in March. There were no witnesses, so no

I was in a wreck in March. There were no witnesses, so no one was given a ticket.After about 5 months I received a certified letter that a witness had come forward. It just so happened to be a lady that works at the station at the intersection where the the accident occurred and a business that the other person involved with whose attorney stops by nearly every day. Therefore I was sued and the man settled for 60000.00. Is this common for a witness to come forward almost 5 months after this accident.

Last October I was involved in an accident during very heavy

Hello,Last October I was involved in an accident during very heavy highway traffic. Another driver jumped into my lane, without signaling, and proceeded to slam on his breaks, resulting in me running into him. I physically had to remove myself from my vehicle and walk to his car to tell him to pull over, as he was then causing more traffic. It was then that I noticed very minor damages to his vehicle. After finally getting him to pull over to the side of the highway, I then walked back to his vehicle to offer him my information. He refused. I even offered him cash money, which he also refused. He got out of his car once to check for damages, where I again continuously offered him my information, although the damages to his car very minor. He proceeded back to his vehicle, where he then turned his hazard lights off and turned his turning signal on. I assumed he was leaving the scene, so I pulled off. I was unaware of any police being called and unaware of this being considered a "hit-and-run".Fast-forward to today where I appeared in court. The prosecutor suggested that I speak with a lawyer about my next step. He said if I plead guilty, I am facing a suspended license with no work or school permit. This concerns me as I am a full-time student and worker. What are my options involving this case and what steps should I take next? Should I obtain a lawyer or just plead guilty? Is there any way I can obtain a restricting license?Thank you
