Ray. My business partner cleaned my business out the day

Ray Carter. My business partner cleaned my business out the day before we were supposed to meet for dissolution. 50k plus in property more then half of which is mine because thousands of it was my personal property. My civil lawyer verified there are multiple breaches of contract but cannot advise me on how it's criminal and how to pursue it. My fear is if I don't soon my property will be lost forever and she has no other cash or assets so I will take a loss even when I win civilly Assistant: Thanks.

My son is on probation and is recently being hounded by

my son is on probation and is recently being hounded by phone calls claiming to be some Orando County collections office saying he owes money for rentals that were never returned 8 years ago. he gets different calls from different phone numbers and no one can provide him with written documentation of what the actual charges are. he is being threatened with arrest warrants for grand larceny and grand theft, which would not only violate his probation but could result in years behind bars. there has been no other contact - by mail or otherwise - except these phone calls. we need to determine if this is legitimate or not - any idea how to do that?JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the Lawyer to go over that information with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want the lawyer to know?Customer: this same scenario played out earlier this year - feb/march time frame. my son called both the Orange County Sheriff, his probation officer, and an office in Texas (where the calls were originating from). they all told him this was a scam to collect money with the threat of jail. we think it may be the same thing, but want to make sure

My mother back in the States called me two hours ago and informed me that the Florida Department of Children and Families sent an agent accompanied by a Sheriff's Deputy to her house looking for me.

How should I proceed?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This isn't real estate law.

When I was 15 I received two traffic tickets in Maryland.

When I was 15 I received two traffic tickets in Maryland. One was for speeding and the other was for driving without a license. It was a rough time in my life and right after that I moved to Oregon to live with my father. I completely forgot about those citations until recently I looked it up and both say they are still active. Also one says my birthdate is 5/1980 and the other says 5/1983, which are both wrong. Should I go ahead and pay these online or ignore them because I'm afraid i may be in big trouble since they've gone unpaid so long.
