Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep

Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep throughout college and is now a permanent resident in WV. The car is still registered to my husband in NJ. We want him to transfer the title to our son. My husband plans to send the title, indicating "gift" on the back, so that he can transfer the title to WV and in his name. There is a legal issue with his license - can he register the car anyway, while waiting for his license? (We just moved to FL and are canceling our NJ auto insurance, so he will be without any until his issue is resolved. He does not plan to drive the car until then.) Thanks.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: West Virginia, car is 11 years old.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not regarding our "shaking him loose" off of our liability. He had a DUI from 2 years ago, and is still waiting for reinstatement of his license. He hired a lawyer at that time, and I believe that as a first offense, some of the record of that (though I am not sure about that) is expunged... We want him to do the waiting and handling of that, but want to properly remove this car from my husband's name.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I've read that while a driver may think that all is "well" because no nasty letters arrive and the criminal record is "smoothed over" somewhat, it does not mean the DMV is on board with anything. We don't know if that is because his license was from NJ, while the ticket was in WV, or what...He walks to work, but clearly needs to move forward with his life.

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop

On Friday I receive a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign, this is the same street I drive everyday at my town. I recall I had stop and decided against making the left turn and went straight instead. The traffic cop stop me when I was half way down the street. This is my first ticket for non stop at red. What should I do? the officer told me to pay the ticket and I won't receive any points. But is this the normal process? Should I go to the court and plead guilty and pay the fine or should I hire a laywer?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NY state at Nassau county at Port WashingtonJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes I have a court date of Sept 30JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was never told what I did until the ticket was given to me should I be concern or this is normal practice?

I bought a truck sunday and registered and insured it by

I bought a truck sunday and registered and insured it by tues. Have it in the shop they just fixed AC, brakes and steering on it for 2k I paid 3,800.00 for it. Today a detective called said I bought it illegally and they can confiscate it. The guy had the title not a request for duplicat or anything like that. He said he bought it from one of two brothers going through and inheritence dispute and the brother sold it to him the detective said the other brother had legal executor rights to it and detective said they can take it from me if the DA and other brother donot file a civil suit against the other brother. How can they? Maybe the brothers are running a scam selling stuff and splitting the money and taking the stuff back?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: California the truck is a 1995 ford 350 need work but runs.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I bought the truck off craiglslist and never met the guy before but he had an official title to it and DMV registered it etc. I called the guy and he said he bought it legally after I got the call from the detective. I know I thought I bought it legally can I file against them if they take my truck?

Sudenlly, he bigan to really scream:" Stop! I am speaking! I said Stop!" The manager works with our small beauty school for two months, I work there eleven years.

I was told by NJ DMV, that I need to legally change my misspelled middle name on my birth certificate, to be able to get my NJ drivers License. I was born in NY, and have lived in DE for 16 years. I have recently moved to Howell, NJ. I have printed the necessary forms, but think I might need a Lawyer to get a Court Order for the change. Is that right? If so, how do I go about this?

I got a DUI in Oregon 12 years ago. I paid my fines & did my

I got a DUI in Oregon 12 years ago. I paid my fines & did my community service. I finished my alcohol classes but never received my completion certificate. I have since moved to Arizona where I have lived for approximately 10 years. Arizona has cancelled my driving privileges here because of this. I called the Oregon DMV & they said I was clear thru them but that I needed to call the court in Oregon & ask for a clearance from them. When I called the court they informed me that I never finished paying my fines, didn't complete my community service or my DUI classes & that I have a warrant. They were very rude to me telling me that I need to come back to Oregon & turn myself in. I DID finish paying my fines & I DID complete my community service. I just didn't turn in a completion certificate for my classes. I have a job here in AZ which I will lose if I have to go to Oregon. What can I do to rectify this? I do even know if I still have the paperwork anymore because it was 12 years ago. Please let me know how I can get this taken care of. My email address is:***@******.***. Thank you so much in advance for your much needed help.
